I'm still trying to process the suicide tragedy at Costa Mesa City Hall on March 17. An extreme consequence from an extreme City Council agenda, is what it appears to me. As we all try to heal through this, may I offer this advice to the mayor and council? First, trim the budget with a scalpel, not a hatchet. Second, treat your employees with respect and compassion; they are your city's greatest resource. And third, stop reducing the operating budgets of the police and fire departments — there have been too many reductions in service already.

Young Chang You hear the words "grieving" and "healing" and "book for the grieving soul" and immediately expect a how-to book. A book that tells you it's ok to feel angry, that the anger will pass and what you might do to hasten that passing. Jorie Nolen's "The Hidden Gardens of Life's Winter" doesn't say anything like that. It's Nolen's opinion, in fact, that society is too often inundated with instructions on what we need or should do and 12 steps for everything.

Suzie Harrison Her life crashed. She had a failed marriage, no career path, no resources and two tiny babies. Some would have been left emotionally bankrupt and turn to drinking or drugs -- but not Jeanette Smith. She turned toward a different path to glue the fragile pieces of her life together. "I really thought it was the end of the line," Smith said. Then she turned to the book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy, a book that she had grown up with.

A friend who helped run the group enticed Martine to visit. "I was speaking on love at that meeting," John Kohlenberger recalled.

Q: I recently read an article about a man in a hospital who was so incapacitated that his body was useless. Staff disconnected one of the machines that was preventing the man from speaking and asked him if he wanted to continue living like that. He said no and asked them to pull the plug. The man's family gathered around him and he died shortly afterward. This got me thinking: If your body is useless and you decide not to go on living, is that considered suicide in God's eyes? What would God think was your time for judgment?

The first time Linda Lawler spoke to Jacky she expected their conversation to be somber - sad, even. Instead, she was taken by the joy and hope beaming from the young woman, whose real name and age are not being used to protect her privacy. Laughter came easily to Jacky, a survivor of sexual violence who lives in My Refuge House in Cebu, Philippines, Lawler noted after they Skyped earlier this year. "She actually enjoys studying and wants to be a teacher and help poor children and her family," the Newport Beach resident said.

Originally, I had anticipated writing about Earth Day and the obligation that people of faith have to care for God's creation. After all, if we cannot be the prophetic voice and model an earth-conscious life, how can we possibly honor our God? And yet, the events of this week demand reflection. Eyes glued to the television, tears streaming down my face, a face that mirrors a nation of faces in mourning, I try to make sense of the senseless. I'm not a news junkie. I cannot do hour after hour of television.

Black Crow White Lie Candi Sary Casperian Books ; 159 pages In the film noir classic "The Night of the Hunter," Robert Mitchum plays a preacher who tattoos the word "love" on one hand and "hate" on the other - a symbol, he explains, of the struggle between good and evil. The protagonist of "Black Crow White Lie," Candi Sary's new novel, faces this conflict in a deeper sense. Carson Calley, a preteen who moves with his alcoholic mother in and out of Hollywood motels, often responds to frustration with clenched fists; when others aren't watching, he pounds walls, vandalizes bikes, even smashes store windows.

Angela Sinnett and Andrea Allerton treat common health ailments with the one thing many people fear most - needles. That's because they are trained and licensed acupuncturists. "When people hear 'needles' they tend to think of a shot like they do at the doctor's office," Sinnett said. "But, the first thing they say afterward is, 'Oh, that was easy,' or 'I didn't even feel anything.'" The duo have combined their practices, Sinnett's Magnolia Acupuncture and Allerton's Modus Acupuncture, to launch Community Acupuncture, a reoccurring event at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sundays at Studio Seaside, Corona del Mar. The event aims to bring low-cost sessions - $25 for about 45 minutes - to those who otherwise could not afford it. While Sinnett and Allerton accept insurance, many providers do not cover acupuncture.
