Deepa Bharath Chapter 3 Raring to go The hospital had a smell that seemed to cling to the corridors and to the people who walked on them. It was not a pleasant smell. It's hard to pinpoint what it was exactly. At best it could have been the cleaning agent used to mop the floors in the mornings. At worst, it could have wafted from the grimy bathroom floors or from the bloody sheets in the birthing room. Or it could have been the putrid stench that oozed out of open, infected wounds.

Mathis Winkler NEWPORT BEACH -- For years, Dolores Otting knew where paramedics would take her bedridden mother-in-law in emergency situations: Hoag Hospital. But recently, on Feb. 6 and March 16, things didn't work out that way. On both dates, hospital officials informed here they didn't have room for another patient. Her mother would have to go to an emergency room at another hospital in the area. "I couldn't believe that the hospital's been closed," Otting told City Council members last week.

JIM DE BOOM Last October, the Rotary Club of Newport-Balboa hosted a barbecue for the Junior High Exchange Students from Okazaki, Japan and their American host families at Hamill Park on Private Road in Newport Beach. During the cleanup, club member Roger McGonegal injured his fingers. Blood gushing out, he yelled out that he need emergency medical treatment. Rather than calling for an ambulance, I moved Roger to my car, wrapped his hand in a towel and we headed off to the emergency room at Hoag Hospital.

If you’re bummed because the TV drama “ER” hasn’t been shown the past few Thursday evenings, you could check into it next weekend in Huntington Beach. A live version of “ER: Emergency Room” will be presented at the Huntington Beach Art Center on March 22 to 25, following its opening weekend in Irvine, under the auspices of the Newport Beach Repertory Theater. Just don’t look for Abby, Luca, Neela or any of the other characters from the TV show.

ROBERT GARDNER The Corona del Mar Centennial Committee interviewed a bunch of us old-timers a few days ago. After I left, I was trying to remember some of the early businesses in Corona del Mar and came up with the two markets -- the All American, now an Albertsons, and Coast Super, where the Health Emporium stands. We always shopped at the All American and continued when it became Albertsons. One day, however, I went into the Health Emporium, thinking to save myself several blocks of walking.

This is one of those stories that, 25 years later, people are probably still scratching their heads about it. In February 1984, Costa Mesa police officer Bruce Ross found himself the center of attention in Southern California. Before sunrise Feb. 5, 1984, Ross was writing a ticket during a traffic stop on Newport Boulevard near Harbor Boulevard when he felt a painful thump in his back. Concerned, but not panicked, Ross drove himself to the emergency room when he found blood seeping from his undershirt.

"Good friends are good for your health." -- Irwin Sarason "Friends are the chocolate chips in the cookies of life." I smiled when I saw that slogan on a car's bumper sticker last week. On my short drive home from the market, I waved at two different friends driving the other direction. Another friend honked as she drove by while I unloaded my groceries. "Wow, God," I said out loud in my kitchen. "You have blessed me so richly with friends.

Remember thinking your teacher lived at school? You couldn't imagine that he or she ate, shopped or washed clothes. Sometimes I think people see runners as one-dimensional people. That's all we do, run. Friends I haven't seen in a while ask, "How's your running?" "Running?" I think, mystified. "Oh, that. " Perhaps I've been lost in thought regarding family, a book I'm reading, dinner. Running is rarely on my mind, even though I'm putting in four-hour mornings on the road.

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District and its two employee unions are moving to avoid a $2.3-million tax the district predicted it would have to pay if it couldn't rein in healthcare costs. Employees have agreed to take on higher individual costs to offset higher rates from the district's insurance provider. The move could reduce what the district would owe in a new tax on premium policies starting in five years under the federal Affordable Care Act. The school board signed off on the agreement Tuesday.

The big news Friday morning was a proposed mayors-only meeting with South Coast Air Quality Management District board member and Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido. The purpose: a roll-up-our-sleeves discussion relating to the fire rings. The AQMD meets next month with the sole focus of determining what to do about 840 fire rings spread across Los Angeles and Orange counties - the bulk of them, roughly 500, in Huntington Beach. The dispute over the fire rings began in Newport Beach when, in March 2012, the City Council, at the behest of many vocal citizens, voted unanimously to remove the toxic fire pits.

This week's column is more for me than for all of you. I am sure you have heard and lived it yourself: Life is too short to go boating without your family and friends. Tuesday I stared at my blank computer monitor for about 20 minutes, thinking of something to write for this column. Then, while looking out of my office window, I noticed the large, dark clouds of a winter storm approaching. My phone rang. It was my mother, looking for assistance to take my father to the hospital.

A Costa Mesa doctor's negligence and incompetence contributed to two prison inmates' deaths and a third inmate's near blindness, the state medical board concluded. In a decision that took effect Friday, the Medical Board of California put Dr. Allan J. T. Yin, 74, on 35 months' probation for the incidents between 2005 and 2006. He may continue practicing medicine, but the board can revoke his license if he violates his probation. Yin has accepted responsibility for his alleged part in all three cases.

Many years ago, I was working at my desk in my Corona del Mar home when I got a telephone call from a gruff voice telling me that my wife had been injured in an auto accident and was on her way to Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian. And that I had better get to the emergency room. Pronto. Janet had left the house in our only car on an errand 15 minutes earlier. When I rushed next door shouting "I've got to borrow your car," our neighbor — and good friend — took one look at me and silently handed over her keys.
