Deepa Bharath NEWPORT BEACH -- Police officials are testing candy an unidentified man handed out Thursday afternoon because it reportedly burned an 8-year-old boy's throat, officials said. The boy, whose name is not being released, was checked into Hoag Hospital but was released shortly afterward, police said. Family members, who chose to remain anonymous, say they are "shaken up." Police said the boy was playing with several other children about 1 p.m. at Alta Vista Park, at the corner of Eastbluff and Alta Vista drives, when a man believed to be in his 40s pulled over and asked the boys if they wanted some leftover candy.

The Newport Beach Police Department is looking for a brown-eyed, 30- to 40-year-old man suspected of child annoyance in the Eastbluff community. At 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, an 11-year-old boy was walking on Vista Bonita when a man driving a 4-door, dark-colored midsized sedan pulled alongside him. The subject, wearing a black beanie and dark blue T-shirt, rolled down the passenger window and offered the boy candy. The boy ran home and told his father, who notified the police. Investigators do not suspect there is a connection between Tuesday's incident and similar disturbances in the Harbor Ridge community last month, adding the subject and vehicle descriptions do not match.

You wouldn't take candy from a baby. So why, local mom and American Youth Soccer Organization Region 120 board member Silvia Casasola wondered, would someone steal all the candy and Gatorade from a snack bar that raises money for young soccer players? "It's just kind of disappointing," Casasola said of the Monday night theft from the AYSO parent-run snack bar, which is open most afternoons and all day Saturdays at the Jack Hammett Sports Complex in Costa Mesa. It wasn't exactly a grand heist, Casasola said: About $300 in Ring Pops, Sour Punch straws, chocolate bars, sunflower seeds and other goodies was taken.

“ This post has been corrected, as noted below .”  To the uneducated eye, the lustrous behemoth - simultaneously incongruous and at ease in its shady corner in the LAB - appears to be a caravan. A circular light dangles above the vehicle's roof, next to a rustic ombre sign. The yellow fades to orange like a setting sun - "Creme Tangerine," it announces. Close inspection reveals a 22-foot silver Airstream land yacht with orange piping - and a motley of new and used vinyl and cassettes.

That's because his South San Francisco-based company makes the bulk of its annual revenue on Christmas and Easter, Kinstler said at the ninth annual Concordia University Faith and Business Forum on Thursday at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa hotel. "In part, I can be troubled by the amount of profit made by Christian holidays," Kinstler said.
