"Lone Survivor" is a brutally honest depiction of ground combat in the 21st century. It provides an unflinching look at the gritty reality facing our finest soldiers in the merciless badlands of Afghanistan. It should be required viewing for every member of Congress and the executive branch of our government. An American war movie like no other, it relays the unvarnished truth of a real-life Navy Seal operation gone bad. Mark Wahlberg plays Marcus Luttrell, the only member of the team to survive Operation Red Wings in 2005.

This July 4, I thought of three important events in our history. The first occurred 237 years ago, the second 150 years ago, and the third just a few days ago. These three events explain what America means to me now. An edited version of Thomas Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence was published 237 years ago with these words in the second paragraph: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they...

Ahoy! The recent cold weather has brought boat winterization to the forefront of my mind; however, we live along a portion of the Pacific Ocean where our boating season really never ends. Let me explain, before I get a flood of reader emails, that we do not need to completely winterize our boats for freezing temperatures along Southern California's coastline. We need to do that only if our boats are stored in our local mountains or high deserts. Keep in mind that the temperature only plays a role of how in-depth you will need to perform your winterization.

NEWPORT BEACH - Lifelong surfer Billy Lewis stood on Balboa Pier watching the waves Thursday afternoon. Spots of water from the splashes shooting upward dotted his face, shirt and hat. "I had to take a look at it. I'm a surfer," the Newport Beach resident said. Hundreds joined Lewis on the pier because no one around there was up to experiencing Mother Nature first hand. Waves were up to 8 feet on average, with some peaking as high as 12, lifeguards said. The sand around the pier was absent of any people braving the waves, and only a few tried dipping their feet in the shorebreak.

NEWPORT BEACH - Not even a hurricane could stop them. A Navy SEAL's widow and mother-in-law were so determined to make the cross-country trip to Newport Beach in time for his benefit tournament that they drove some 300 miles - from Virginia Beach, Va., to Charlotte, N.C. - as Hurricane Irene churned northward. Keri Mills of Virginia Beach, and her mother, Cindi Gore of Newport Beach, had to get to the Palisades Tennis Club in time to honor Special Warfare Chief Petty Officer Stephen Matthew "Matt" Mills.

It had all the atmosphere of a public execution straight out of a black-and-white Western. At high noon Friday, nearly a dozen teachers and coaches from Corona del Mar High School, draped in black protective shawls, turned to face their tormentors: hair stylists who shaved their heads in the name of cancer research. As pop music blared from speakers, students emerged from the shadows of their classrooms and gravitated en masse toward the stage as the faculty appeared to the cheers of their students.

The Braveheart Project was started in Scotland during the middle 1990s by a group of coronary heart disease health-care professionals who were concerned that their patients were losing valuable information as they were being referred from one expert in the field to another. Once they focused upon their patients' situation, the reason was quite plain: Their patients were not experts in the field, were in a foreign and stressful environment, and were almost always scared. So all of these conditions tended to result in a lack of attention and loss of memory.

As Sandy Ryan lay on the table Wednesday morning, with her arm being prepared for its first blood donation, she remembered a young donor she worried would die. With that fear still lurking in her mind, the Costa Mesa resident looked out the window from the Newport Beach Police Department. “At least I have a view,” she said. As she may have envisioned her last moments, Ryan made a donation that will likely keep up to three other people from experiencing theirs.
