Lindsay Sandham Although most parents think their baby is the cutest, not everyone has a trophy to prove it. After Sunday's baby contest at the 58th annual Costa Mesa-Newport Harbor Lions Club Fish Fry, 12 sets of parents now have trophies declaring their baby contest-worthy cute. All of the 27 entries were adorable 6- to 24-month-olds who were judged based on beauty, personality and appearance. The winner of the 6- to 12-month-old baby division was 7-month-old Alexander Kunze.

-- Greg Fry Somewhere along the line in my career, I became the "animal photographer." I'm not sure how, when, or why it happened, but it's a label that has stuck. Whenever the animal assignments come in, I'm the go-to guy. Whether it's cats, dogs, ducks, reptiles or, in this case, kangaroos, I know that I'll soon be aiming my lens at the cute, or not-so-cute, creature. I had never seen a baby kangaroo up close and in person, and if you guess it would be adorable, you're right.

Relocating the water-fowling ducks to an inland park is one solution ("Newport Beach trying to duck the law," May 28). Maybe relocating "Duck Central" to an inland park would be a better solution. That way the fowl lover could still feed the ducks she feels are her charges. I personally think the old-fashion approach to controlling the duck population around Balboa Island that was used many years ago was a resourceful solution. However, the health department didn't agree with me. You see, years ago, people then, too, fed the ducks -- mostly stale bread.

"You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around -- and why his parents will always wave back." -- WILLIAM D. TAMMEUS Last week was filled with fun times with children or watching them, some that I knew and some that I didn't. On an early morning walk, I passed two young families as they played at a nearby park. A cute little boy and girl giggled as they played on the swings while their father watched and pushed a stroller with a sleeping baby inside.

ROBERT GARDNER EDITOR'S NOTE: The Daily Pilot has agreed to republish The Verdict, the ever-popular column written for many years by retired Corona Del Mar jurist and historian Robert Gardner, in exchange for donations to the Surfrider Foundation. This particular column was originally published Sept. 23, 2003. There's a topic I've wanted to write about for a long time, but I just couldn't seem to get around to it, and that's procrastination. Trust me. I'm an expert on the subject.

He was just a cute and curious pup. Or so they said. I’m not so sure. Although there is no argument that the sea lion that turned up on the roof of a West Newport apartment building this week was definitely cute and decidedly curious. In the wee small hours of Thursday morning, Newport Beach resident Mike Kai was awakened by loud barking that sounded just like it was coming from his rooftop, which is a strange place for barking to be. Kai threw on some clothes and made his way to the roof of his triplex and immediately found the source of the barking — a 32-pound sea lion pup. He looked at Kai, wasn’t particularly interested then went about his business, poking around the roof.

Director Michael Bay gives us a live-action version of "Transformers" based on the popular action toys that came out in the '80s. Like most of Bay's previous efforts, ("Armageddon," "The Rock," "Bad Boys," "Pearl Harbor") there's lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Giant robots have come to earth from outer space that can shape-shift into cars, trucks, cell phones, etc. and back again. The bad robots (Autobots) seek world domination and the good robots (Decepticons) don't want any humans harmed.

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." -- Fred Rogers "Mommy, look at our legs. They can't go any faster," my daughter Kelly said to me when she was 4 years old. I looked down at her and her little sister Amy's cute little legs and then at Kelly's cute but concerned-looking, face. Amy looked at Kelly and then at me with a similar expression.

Gil Riegler looked the part of a traditional farmer with a battered cap and faded jeans as he groomed his livestock for the afternoon milking show. But he was preparing to squeeze the white substance from an animal that Americans don't generally connect with the process: a camel. A large crowd gathered in the livestock area of the Orange County Fair hoping to see Riegler milk the desert dromedaries during one of three daily shows. He warmed up the crowd with camel facts - they have three eyelids, they store all their fat in the hump and they have valves in their ears to keep out sand - and introduced the mother, Bellina, and her 3-month-old son, Bodhi.

Normal clothes were left at home Wednesday morning as Woodland Elementary School's students dressed in their Halloween best. "It's awesome!" said second-grader Nathan Thomson, a gruesome zombie. Halloween costumes came out early at the Eastside Costa Mesa K-2's annual Costume Parade. Students walked around the blacktop twice, giving parents and siblings a chance to check out the many different costumes. "Wow, do you guys look great," Principal Lauren Medve, dressed in a Dodgers jersey and hat, said to the students.

In 1968, Bonnie Langseth watched with pride as her daughter Tonya Collier — then a 2-year-old with big blue eyes, curly brown hair and a blue sailor dress — was crowned the cutest baby in Costa Mesa by a panel of judges at the annual Fish Fry carnival. Then in 1987, Tonya’s daughter, Tara, won an honorable mention in the same contest. Now, 41 years and two generations after the first triumph, Tara’s infant daughter and Bonnie’s great granddaughter Sophia will attempt to capture the same prize her grandmother took home all those years ago while her distinguished family members sit on the sideline Sunday afternoon.

Alicia Robinson A custom furniture shop specializing in children's items has carved a niche with local shoppers on East 17th Street in Costa Mesa. At the store, Little Valentina, the business is all in the family for husband and wife Jim and Lisa Delozier and Lisa's mother, Linda Catterlin. Lisa and Linda run the store and buy the merchandise, and Jim oversees construction of the custom furniture. The store's name is a reference to the Deloziers' 2 1/2 -year-old daughter, Michele, born on Valentine's Day. The couple got into the furniture business after Jim Delozier saw how his wife and mother-in-law used their experience in the retail industry to revive another ailing company.

JOHN DEPKO Extremely strange and depressing at every turn, "The Brown Bunny" seems to target the mentally ill already on Prozac. If you are yearning to feel completely isolated, hopeless and out of touch with any semblance of reality, this movie is for you. Vincent Gallo is the self-absorbed writer, producer, director and star of this narcissistic tribute to himself. He is the only human that matters in this painfully boring road trip across America in search of lost love.
