Pedal Power business first: Thanks to the generosity of Barbara Lyon of Newport Beach, I was able to restore a fabulous, girl's mountain bike. It looks great and rides like new. If you know of a girl, 8 to 14 years old, who needs a bike but cannot afford one, please send me an e-mail at o7onthetown2005@aol.comf7. The bike is free and so is delivery anywhere in Orange County. The higher gas prices will continue to affect us all in many ways, even if you don't drive or don't really care how much you pay per gallon.

In the morning game, Newport Harbor got by host Corona, 18-11, in another elimination contest. Newport Harbor, 16-5 in all-star competition, left the Region Tournament with its head high.

In an ironic twist of fate, what was used to help people escape danger is now being used as an escape from day-to-day life. Fire-lookouts give rangers the ability to see areas susceptible to fire, but with these sites also double as tourist ventures with awe-inspiring views in tucked away retreats that are simple, serene and secluded.   HISTORY Fire lookouts were once used as the main means to discover nascent and potential fires by forest rangers. Something of a national forest relic now, fire lookouts went out of style with modern technology.

This post has been corrected, as noted below. An estimated 1,000 lobsters will fly into John Wayne Airport on Friday evening. If you cast a glance skyward, you won't notice any marine crustaceans suspended in mid-air. They will, instead, disembark from a refrigerated cargo line after departing from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. A truck driver will intercept the wax cardboard boxes and transport the live critters to Anderson Seafoods in Anaheim, where they will be stored overnight in large tanks.

Traffic is always considered one of the biggest issues for residents whenever a poll is taken in Orange County. Newport-Mesa residents are no different. Recently the Orange County Transportation Authority had three local meetings to get input from residents on seven solutions for the traffic problem along Newport Boulevard. The transportation authority was looking to shed some light on solving the problem, but in the end I think they just got a lot more heat. Discussing traffic solutions just isn’t done in polite company.

Let’s agree on this much up front. The southern end of the 55 Freeway is the poster child for abrupt endings. It’s the closest thing we have in the universe that resembles the futility of pushing BBs through an insulin syringe. On any given day, more than 100,000 rolling metal boxes, most often helmed by inattentive yahoos pressing cellphones to their ears, empty out of this train wreck of a freeway ending onto Newport Boulevard around 19th Street. Somewhere between 19th and 17th streets, more than 13,000 cars peel away to gum up the residential streets of Eastside Costa Mesa or meander their way to points on the Westside.
