Posted unobtrusively low in the floor-to-ceiling front window of a trendy salad joint or fading in its plastic sleeve at the sushi place next door, the orange-ringed seal has for decades been a great equalizer of sorts among Orange County restaurants - theoretically useful, but often unnoticed. Now, an Orange County Grand Jury report recommends that those orange rings be switched out in favor of a stoplight-style color code, reviving a long-simmering debate over the county's restaurant health rating system.

A Costa Mesa man and his co-defendant are scheduled to go on trial Jan. 19 for allegedly shooting and kidnapping a man and holding him for a $1-million ransom in Los Angeles County, prosecutors said Friday. Vagan Adzhemyan, of Costa Mesa, and Galvin Shaun Gibson, of Mira Loma, face life in prison if convicted of federal kidnapping charges, among others, for the July kidnapping of a Russian man. A third man, Suren Garibyan of North Hollywood, pleaded guilty Dec. 30 to his role in the plot and faces 17 years and six months in prison as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

Once upon a time, we used to call Orange County semiarid. Now strike the "semi." We are about as arid as the Sahara. Were it not for the water we import, we would have a few million very, very thirsty people. We usually don't get much rain, and when it does rain everything always seems to flood. A good storm finds me in the backyard, readying my ark. All this is a roundabout way of getting to why Orange County in those early days was only semiarid. Believe it or not, there existed in the northern part of the county and in Los Angeles County what we called artesian wells.

After a group of people were caught illegally fishing in Newport's Back Bay last weekend, officials said poaching in local waters likely happens more often than they know. The Back Bay is a protected ecological reserve, and except for two specific spots, fishing of any kind is illegal. California Department of Fish and Game officials said they patrol the area often but don't have enough staff to keep a constant watch. "This is one group out of probably a dozen groups," Fish and Game Warden Dave McNair said.

Los Angeles County coroner's officials Friday identified the first of four victims who perished when a jet crashed into a hangar at Santa Monica Airport this past weekend. Lauren Winkler, 28, of Irvine was killed Sunday when a twin-engine Cessna Citation she was riding in touched down at the airport, then veered hard right off the runway and smashed into an airport hangar, bursting into flames and collapsing the building. All four aboard the aircraft were killed. Los Angeles-based construction company Morley Builders announced that its chief executive, 63-year-old Mark Benjamin, and his 28-year-old son, Luke, a senior project engineer, were also on the plane, although coroner's investigators have yet to confirm their identities.

Candidates for the Orange County Board of Supervisors' 2nd District seat sparred over pensions, problem-solving and their community ties Monday night in a debate that took on something of a wonkish tone. The four are vying to replace Supervisor John Moorlach, who will be termed out next year. About 160 community members gathered at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Community Center for the seventh Feet to the Fire forum, where candidates for local or regional office meet with a panel of journalists in an informal TV talk show-style discussion.
