Cindy Trane Christeson "Parenthood is quite a long word. I expect it contains the rest of my life." -- Karen Schoot Boates A few days before our daughters returned to school after vacation, I went to pick up Kelly from the Crystal Cove Shake Shack in Laguna Beach. It is a favorite destination for both girls when they go for a run because they can spend so much of the run gazing out at the ocean and they end at a favorite place of ours for lunch. I love meeting them there and sharing wonderful sandwiches, shakes and scenery.

It's safe to say the football is secure with Talalelei Teaupa. The day after he plays tailback for Newport Harbor High on Friday nights, the 17-year-old plays with a knife on fire. Holding onto the ball is easy when compared to how Teaupa handles a machete engulfed in flames at each end. Teaupa is a Samoan fire knife dancer on the weekends. You've probably seen one before if you've been to a luau in Hawaii. Picture a bare-chested dancer twirling, throwing and catching a flaming knife and that's Teaupa.

When I stop by The Harp Inn in Costa Mesa, it's usually to unwind or to have a good time. But I was there for a different reason Sunday when the St. Baldrick's Foundation held its special head-shaving event to raise money for children's cancer research. I still had a great time, one that ended up being deeply profound and meaningful. I never intended to become a part of the story. I did feel connected to the event because my father, Julian, died of leukemia when he was 50, and I also know people close to my heart who are dealing with other forms of cancer.

Trendy clothes, designer hair cuts, plenty of money, not a care in the world. That describes your typical coastal Orange County high school student, if you believe the seemingly endless outpouring of TV shows centering on the beach community. Spurred on by the immense popularity of the landmark blockbuster “The OC,” big networks started churning out shows focusing on the high school-age demographic in Newport Beach and similar areas including “Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County” and “Laguna Beach.

ANAHEIM — Most NFL players ride to special events in limos or in exotic sports cars. When the player is the dead-last pick in the draft, he rolls in the back of a vehicle more ideal for a soccer mom. Welcome to the life of Tim Toone, Mr. Irrelevant. There was no need to valet park the van for Toone at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa on Friday. Toone jumped into the van with his parents, brother, two Mr. Irrelevant Week volunteers, and his agent. Before the seven left the hotel for a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim game, a couple of guests in the lobby rolled their eyes at the choice of transportation and then grinned.

-- By Christine Carrillo, photo by [tk] HE IS A rockabilly barber taking his customers back to the days of straight-razor shaves and old-style tapers OLD SCHOOL MEETS NEW As the owner of Hawleywood's Barber Shop in Costa Mesa and one of only three barbers, Donnie Hawley is doing the job he always saw himself doing. Wearing a traditional white barber coat, nicely pressed slacks and a pair of swanky two-tone shoes, the 31-year-old has developed his craft to create an atmosphere more in tune with the styles of the '40s and '50s than the current trends of the millennium.

In the seventh decade of my life, I’ve finally discovered who I am. Not in the metaphysical sense, of course, but in a more corporal one. I’m a Ginger. A what? A Ginger. That’s me. Gingers had their “coming out” in a 2005 episode of the popular Comedy Central series, “South Park.” Frankly, it was a clever satire of racial intolerance. But, a little more than a week ago a Facebook group jumped on the idea and promoted a “National Kick a Ginger Day.” The contemptible action resulted in several “Ginger kids” around the country being beaten up. It’s not my intention to make light of their misfortune, but I find the subject personally relevant.

I don't know who wrote the piece that follows, but I think that every aging person will be able to relate to it: "The other day a young person asked me how I felt about being old. I was taken aback, for I do not think of myself as old. Upon seeing my reaction, she was immediately embarrassed, but I explained that it was an interesting question, and I would ponder it and let her know. "Old age, I decided, is a gift. I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be. Oh, not my body!
