It can be tough to be a vegan with style. Take shoes, for example. Try finding a good pair that aren't made from leather. And most brands of lipstick are made with beeswax; some are even tested on animals. That makes it pretty tough for vegans like Lindsey Packer to follow a strict dietary system that bars eating or wearing anything made from animal by-products. No meat, no dairy, no eggs ? not even honey. Packer was used to purchasing her nondairy cheeses, spicy Tofurky and organic leeks, but it was becoming increasingly difficult to find shoes not made from leather.

Lindsey Packer can speak from experience about the durability of vegan clothes. A glass case at the back of Humanitaire, her store at the Camp at 2937 Bristol St. in Costa Mesa, contains a pair of vegan boots that Packer has walked in all over the world — and which barely look used. In addition to shoes, the store offers shirts, belts and other clothing items, all made without a single animal product. Let’s say I’m a guy who wears leather all the time and has never heard of vegan clothing.

Young Chang She's sitting in a private conference room at Hoag Hospital's surgery wing casually talking about the confusion during World War II. How she and other German Americans were sent to a relocation camp in Texas. The hardships that followed after being deported to Germany. The leather factory she worked in as a teenager abroad. And more. But Suzy Kvammen is convincingly cool. Blunt. Unemotional. Almost blase about her dramatic past. She's quick to dismiss some of her thoughts as silly or strange, slow to dwell on anything for too long.

It’s not often you hear about someone getting charged with burglary for returning something to a store, but that’s just what happened to Calvin Valrie from Buena Park last week, according to police. Valrie, 34, was arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary when he tried to return a $2,595 leather jacket to Neiman Marcus in Fashion Island in February. Police said a person from Florida had been the victim of identity theft, and the unidentified suspect had used their identity to purchase two gift cards to Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills.

RIVERSIDE — The topography of the outfield at UC Riverside’s baseball field at the Riverside Sports Complex is not conducive to defensive gems. But in addition to the sloping, slanted dips down both lines about midway between the infield and the foul poles, the expanse of grass patrolled by UC Irvine outfielders became Death Valley to a string of would-be hits by the Highlanders. UCI outfielders, who have provided several adventurous moments this season, even botching a handful of routine plays, combined to make three diving catches, one each in left field, center and right.

Barry Faulkner Baseball is challenging enough without a heavy measure of rust buildup on one's glove, a point the Newport Beach National Little League Majors Division Cubs demonstrated Saturday. The Cubs, champions of their league, but battling a three-week layoff since last they played, committed five errors in the first three innings, which led to five unearned runs in a 7-4 loss to the Laguna Niguel Twins in the Cubs' first game of the District 55 Tournament of Champions at the Laguna Hills Sports Complex.
