"There is a new world order. And there is the old world order," offered Jonathan Adelman, a professor at the University of Denver and keynote speaker at the Jewish National Fund's Tree of Life awards dinner held Sunday evening at the Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa.

JOSEPH N. BELL Dear Arnold: I've got to tell you up front that I won't be at your bash at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine on Tuesday. I would have enjoyed watching the Lincoln Club and the New Majority co-habiting, even from a distance, but sending my regrets isn't just a matter of money. It's true, I can't afford even the $1,000 bleacher seats that would probably put me somewhere in the neighborhood of Bakersfield at your dinner. But the bottom line is that I'm into saving California, too, but not the way the high rollers at your dinner have in mind.

The OC Mix is kind of a mini-Portland, Ore., within Costa Mesa's mammoth SoCo design complex, an enclosed warren of small shops devoted to spices, artisan cheese, baby clothes, funky jewelry, nut milks, chocolate and olive oil. Analog, a vinyl specialist, stocks Led Zeppelin bootlegs you may not have seen since the glory days of Moby Disc in the mid-1970s. If you hit the ice cream counter on the right day, you may be able to score a scoop flavored with salty black licorice. Another store features both skinny jeans and fixie bicycles.

Modern boat moorings, on-demand water taxis, a new golf course and reduced building-permit fees will be coming soon to Newport Beach - if the mayor gets his way. Living in Newport Beach promises a high quality of life that should be both celebrated and protected, Mayor Rush Hill explained to a well-dressed crowd enjoying a three-course meal and wine Friday. "And for this reason I'm afraid we can't rest," he said. Hill outlined his goals for the year during the 33rd annual Mayor's Dinner, which community group Speak Up Newport hosted at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa.

They found the home listing in the PennySaver, of all places. Todd Porter and Diane Cu barely glanced at the interior of the run-down three-bedroom, two-bathroom house when they arrived for a walk-through, and instead they headed straight to the sprawling backyard overgrown with brush and suffocated by a giant pine. "We looked at each other and said, 'This is it,'" Porter recalled. The Costa Mesa backyard wasn't neat or squared off like Southern California yards are supposed to be. Instead, the 11,000-square-foot lot was a jagged, oddly shaped U. It was perfect for the couple's plans: To carve out a quiet oasis where they could live a garden-to-plate lifestyle.
