None of Newport Beach resident and author Patty Hansen’s experience overseeing licensing for the massive “Chicken Soup for the Soul” publishing empire could have prepared her for the day her husband of 26 years told her he didn’t love her anymore. It was over a chocolate souffle at her favorite restaurant on the couple’s wedding anniversary. “I still can’t eat chocolate souffle,” Hansen said Thursday on her quiet estate tucked away behind a security gate on a quiet Newport Beach side street, where she tends to a vegetable garden and a flock of chickens.

Danette Goulet COSTA MESA -- When Jessee Marshall saw another student being beat up on the school playground, he put a stop to it. "I told the bigger kid to stop beating up on him or else I'd either have to get a teacher or get him away myself," Jessee said. "The kid said thank you so much. He was so thankful because he already had a bloody nose and probably would have had a black eye." The sixth-grade student related this story to his classmates at Kaiser Elementary School on Monday morning during the first of five "Souper Safe Schools" anti-violence lessons.

Young Chang Two years ago, one of the co-authors of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series reached out to Margaret Buckingham and asked if she had any nice volunteer stories to tell. Buckingham had been the director of volunteers at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. The Newport Beach resident admitted last week, nothing really came to mind. She always assumed the "Chicken Soup" books were "sort of schmaltzy," as in heartwarming in a good way. Then she realized she was overlooking a volunteer quite close to home, a volunteer who ended up helping to save the opening ceremony of the Olympics at Los Angeles' Memorial Coliseum that year.

If you think teens turn off critical-thinking skills and steer clear of the pleasures of reading over summer vacation, you haven't been to the Newport Beach Central Library recently. Lining the Teen Center bulletin board like so much literary wallpaper are critiques of novels, nonfiction and biographies enjoyed by participants of "Book Raiders Dig Reading," the 2002 summer reading program for seventh- through 12th-graders. Fantasies are high on teens' reading lists.

Young Chang NEWPORT BEACH -- Karen Twichell knows grievously well that caregivers need their own caregivers. After losing her mother to pancreatic cancer, her father to lung cancer and her brother to a brain tumor, Twichell realized that people giving care can need, sometimes, as much or more encouragement to bear the pain of watching loved ones suffer as those suffering need. Though Twichell had lost both her parents and brother by the mid-1990s, she continues to care for family members today.
