Kathy Mader Grocery stores aren't normally where you would look to catch a bite to eat. But grocery stores aren't what they used to be either, and I mean that in a good way. The stiff competition between markets has caused everyone to step up. You see remodels all over town, and the delis in all of our local grocery stores are now top notch. But none are better than the deli/cafe at Bristol Farms in Corona del Mar. First of all, this is a food lover's grocery store -- I'm sorry, gourmet market -- with foods from around the world creatively displayed in various sections of the store.

Deirdre Newman It seemed like such a simple idea. Pick up extra food from grocery stores that would normally be discarded and deliver it to social service agencies. But when Corona del Mar High School senior Joe Klunder first broached this idea to the management of a Newport Beach grocery store, he was immediately thwarted. "I called the manager ... and he hung up on me," Klunder said. But the 17-year-old was undeterred. Through legal research, cold-calling and perseverance, Klunder transformed his kernel of an idea into the Youth Community Organization Serving Others, which delivers food and clothing to various social service agencies in the Newport-Mesa area.

Lolita Harper COSTA MESA -- Who says a dollar can't but you anything? Never fear, it's not another commercial featuring athletes proving they didn't miss their calling when they chose baseball over the drama club.

The Commerce-based retail chain will open on the corner of Harbor Boulevard and Victoria Street Sept.

Jennifer Kho MESA VERDE -- About 1,000 business owners, employees and customers have signed a petition to try to persuade Trader Joe's Co. to open another store in Costa Mesa. The petitioners want the new store to open in a shopping center at Harbor Boulevard and Baker Street where Save Max was, said Jody Reese, owner of My Kind'a Beach Tanning Salon, who has been circulating the petitions. "We're trying to get something here that would generate business for the whole center, not just the individual store," said Larry Ziemke, manager at King's Copies, another store gathering petition signatures.

It's the day before Thanksgiving, but already I grow reflective, taking stock of my blessings. I am thankful for a small dark coffee at Diedrich's in the morning. I am thankful for Randy Harvey's column in the sports section of the Times. I am thankful for the cilantro pepper sauce at Wahoos. I am thankful for the smell of the pine trees in the Sierras, the glassy waves at Crescent Beach in the late afternoon, the sound of Vin Scully's voice in the early days of spring training.
