Among the iPods, cameras, family heirlooms and bestsellers being auctioned off on EBay, online shoppers can now bid on a Newport Beach landmark: the Balboa Fun Zone carousel. The iconic merry-go-round has been placed on the auction block with an opening bid of $149,999 . Fun Zone Manager Patrick Moore said he hopes that interested parties will spot the attraction online and reach out to him. "If I happen to sell it, wonderful, but I don't expect to," Moore said. Moore has been with the Fun Zone since 1989, not long after the carousel was installed in 1985.

One panel picture online revealed its serial number, police said. Detectives arrested Mitchell on Tuesday in Santa Monica while picking up a panel they won in an auction for $100, Sgt. Mike McDermott said.

A junior at Northeastern University in Boston, Minney left Southern California for Japan nearly two months ago hoping to see the world. He plane-, train- and bus-hopped all over Asia and Europe and was in Rome when he realized he was running out of money.

Andrew Edwards It's easy to buy sports memorabilia on EBay, but today, you can buy your own athlete. And it's not just any athlete. It's "The Worm" himself.

Some sell items on eBay or call regular donors. All plan for the coming year. Donations to nonprofits can come in droves during the month of December. The same often cannot be said for January.

Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter in Costa Mesa has turned to the Internet for a little extra revenue.

Piles of boxes of golf balls are on one side of the store, clubs from drivers to wedges to full iron sets are nearby and apparel, training aids and golf bags are on the other side. It seems like every available piece of space is being utilized. “People are letting loose a little bit more this year,” said store manager Jim Doody.
