Rep. John Campbell won’t rescind a bill that would cut nearly $2 million in earmarks to Berkeley, despite the City Council’s amending of a resolution that referred to a Marine Corps recruitment center in the city as “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.” The original resolution encouraged “all people to avoid cooperation with the Marine Corps recruiting station,” and applauded those who “may volunteer to impede, passively or actively, by nonviolent means, the work of any military recruiting office located in the city of Berkeley.

Rep. John Campbell has introduced a bill that would rescind more than $2 million in earmarks for Berkeley in the 2008 Omnibus Appropriations bill and transfer the funds to the Marine Corps budget. The move, proposed in tandem with an identical Senate bill filed by South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint, is retaliation for a vote by the Berkeley City Council last week that declared a Marine Corps Recruitment Center in the city “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.” The resolution also encouraged “all people to avoid cooperation with the Marine Corps recruiting station,” and applauded those who “may volunteer to impede, passively or actively, by nonviolent means, the work of any military recruiting office located in the city of Berkeley.

NEWPORT BEACH — Michael Owens had to fight temptation while he put together the Island Hotel’s annual Christmas display — and he won some of the time. The hotel’s executive pastry chef had the task of overseeing the lobby display that accompanies the Island’s holiday toy drive, which benefits the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign. Inside the front doors, Owens helped to set up two statues, a giant greeting card and a mountainside village all made out of chocolate and confections.

NEWPORT BEACH — Dan Marcheano had a restaurant full of Marines to serve Saturday at lunch, so he prepared a dish familiar to anyone who had been in the service. Of course, since it was a special occasion, he made it taste a little better than it might in the trenches. The owner of the Arches Restaurant on 29th Street honors the Marine Corps’ birthday every year by inviting active and retired personnel and their families for a celebratory lunch. In addition to the usual steaks, seafood and other Arches favorites Saturday, Marcheano had his cooks whip up a batch of chipped beef on toast — a dish that, in the military, has a popular name unprintable in a family newspaper.

The owner of the Arches Restaurant announced Saturday that he would award $5,000 to anyone who returned a photo collage that was stolen from his business earlier last week. Meanwhile, the man who donated the display to the restaurant — an 81-year-old retired Marine from Corona del Mar — expressed grief at the loss of what he called a priceless part of history. The collage, which features photographs and other memorabilia from the United States' battles in Japan during World War II, disappeared from the Arches Wednesday evening.

COSTA MESA — It took Harold "Bud" Hohl 22 years in the Marines, nearly 40 years leading a remembrance ceremony, and seven years working on plans for a memorial to get to this day. For some time, he's wanted to get the city a more substantial monument to veterans than the cannon that was installed at Harbor Lawn-Mount Olive Memorial Park in 1954. Today he's closer to his goal, but Hohl isn't finished. As a young man, after four and a half years working in the copper mines of Bisbee, Ariz.

The Marine Corps Birthday Ball is an event that makes the men and their mates feel special, but it’s not one that is always affordable. “Our goal for raising money is to allow the lower ranks to go to the Marine Corps Ball -- sergeants and lower -- to go for free,” said 1st Sgt. John Kob of the 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, Newport Beach’s adopted Marine battalion, which recently returned from Iraq where┬áit lost 11 men....
