HUNTINGTON BEACH — When Sara Noel Harris was in the Newport Beach Police Explorers program as a teenager, she had a reputation for not always listening to rules. Her supervisors hatched a plan one day to make her more docile. The officers in charge — including her father — appointed her sergeant over the other cadets, then, when Harris was out of the room, asked her classmates to disobey every order she gave them. The goal was to show the feisty teen how difficult it was to deal with rebellious types.

DANETTE GOULET Crazy, but that's how it goes. Although the very popular TV show "The O.C." supposedly takes place in Newport Beach, talk show host Sharon Osbourne asked Huntington Beach Mayor Cathy Green to be on her show with "O.C." star Peter Gallagher, who plays Newport attorney Sandy Cohen. Green's role was to thank Gallagher for the attention the show has garnered for Orange County and give him a key to the city. After an initial wariness, prodding from the show's fans in City Hall convinced her. And so Green and more than a dozen members of the Huntington Beach High School marching band enjoyed about one of their 15 minutes of fame on Wednesday when the show aired on KTLA-TV Channel 5. Green laughed, looking both thrilled and a tad embarrassed as she hung a huge brass key by its red ribbon around Gallagher's neck.

The musical “Man of La Mancha” has been around since 1965, and Tim Nelson has been involved with it in one capacity or another since 1982. They’re hooked up again, in a stirring production for Huntington Beach’s Academy for the Performing Arts, and using the current renovation work at Huntington Beach High School as a splendid excuse to move the show to Westminster’s Rose Center Theater, which Nelson also administers. Nelson is both director and musical director for this familiar yet still highly involving production about the adventures of Miguel de Cervantes’ famous mad knight Don Quixote.
