Decades of alcohol abuse and living on the streets took a severe toll on the body of a Newport Beach homeless man found dead earlier this year, an Orange County Sheriff-Coroner report shows. Mark David Allen, 50, had an enlarged heart, liver disease and showed signs from past medical issues when he died in the early hours of Feb. 1 at 43rd Street and Seashore Drive in Newport Beach. His cause of death was listed as heart disease. "He died kind of like a 70- or 80-year-old man in his sleep, but he did it 20 or 30 years earlier because of what alcohol did to his system," said David Sperling, a custody officer with Newport Beach police who documented Allen's years of arrests and alcohol abuse.

Celebrity Chef Jamie Gwen gathered a small army of cooks around her in front of the Orange County Performing Arts Center Wednesday afternoon for a pep talk. And they needed it. They weren’t preparing for a typical fundraising dinner. “You’re all still brilliant and talented and the best of Orange County,” Gwen told the troops. Clad in its white chef coats, the group was no culinary goon squad, but an elite force of the region’s biggest names in fine dining.

Q: My cat gets the hiccups and sometimes belches. I've always had a cat, but this is my first male, and he's a sweetheart. Do male cats in particular get hiccups? What should I do about it? — E.R., Cyberspace A: "In my 42-year career as a veterinarian, I've never seen or heard of a cat with hiccups," says Chicago veterinarian Dr. Sheldon Rubin. "So, no, male cats are not more likely to get the hiccups. " Rubin says your best bet is to videotape whatever is going on so your veterinarian can see it. Your cat could have a gastric reflux issue, a diaphragmatic hernia, or who knows, he could simply be gulping water, then belching.

This time of year I wonder how I can ever really say thank you for the gift of life. I am alive because someone gave me his liver. It was this single act of kindness that saved my life on Feb. 27. Five years ago, my liver began to fail. I started having pain in my side and overall, I just didn't feel right. I went to many doctors who treated my symptoms, but I still never felt normal. I had low energy, and my mind was foggy. In January 2012, I started having back pains, and at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, Dr. Jeanie Spudick diagnosed a serious blood infection.

If there’s one thing Pete Anderson learned right away as Sage Hill School’s new football coach, it’s that the weight room is too small for Cody Gates. The 6-foot-4, close-to-300-pounder feels like King Kong stuck inside the Lightning quarters. There’s barely enough space to flex those 17 1/2 -inch biceps. So instead of working out, he instructs, does whatever he can to push the handful of players who can lift inside. Breaking out for the rest of the night is easy for Gates.
