I saw him repeatedly: the man in the walk-in closet. He frightened me. I was 4 years old and my father, mother, brother and I lived in a small apartment behind my grandparents' home on Balboa Island. It was an idyllic setting and time: Newport Beach, circa 1949. We weren't wealthy, but Newport was an economically diverse community. My dad worked hard, and we considered ourselves a part of the great postwar American middle class. A U.S. Army veteran, Dad was a driver for Arden Farms.

Tom Forquer How many gallons of milk does a cow produce daily? The answer to this and many other dairy-related questions can be found at the cow milking demonstration in the Millennium Barn at the Orange County Fair. On Tuesday afternoon, a mob of youngsters and a handful of adults watched a machine milk two Holstein cows as educator Evy Edelo told them about dairy cows and the milking process. As the machine was being prepared for the cows, Edelo asked the audience if it could guess how much the animals weighed.

DAVID SILVA When I was very little, I loved to watch my mother make coffee. Mom made her coffee the old-fashioned way. She'd plop a cup or so of ground coffee into a small pot of water and then put the pot on a burner. Once the water began to boil, the steaming black crust that had formed on top of it would suddenly break apart and slip beneath the bubbles. This was the part that most fascinated me. Every time I watched that dark continental plate of grounds sink beneath the water, I'd imagine that this was what would happen to the West Coast when the Big One finally hit. My mother would pour the coffee through a copper strainer into a steel coffeepot and set it aside.

Gil Riegler looked the part of a traditional farmer with a battered cap and faded jeans as he groomed his livestock for the afternoon milking show. But he was preparing to squeeze the white substance from an animal that Americans don't generally connect with the process: a camel. A large crowd gathered in the livestock area of the Orange County Fair hoping to see Riegler milk the desert dromedaries during one of three daily shows. He warmed up the crowd with camel facts - they have three eyelids, they store all their fat in the hump and they have valves in their ears to keep out sand - and introduced the mother, Bellina, and her 3-month-old son, Bodhi.

The Orange County Fair doesn't specify exactly what "it" is in this year's theme of "Come & Get It," but there's plenty to choose from. Friday marks the beginning of the annual event's deep-fried grandeur, cornucopia of entertainment, rides, animals, games and more at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, according to news releases and the fair's website. This year, a new cast of food mascots is ready to welcome fairgoers Wednesdays through Sundays, from Friday to Aug. 11. Although attendees won't be able to eat Arturo the churro, Olivia the orange or Mike the bacon-wrapped turkey leg, they can buy plush toys depicting the "foodies" and find them in costume around the grounds.

Cheese, ice cream, yogurt, cottage cheese, sour cream and butter. Kaiser Elementary School's students Thursday morning listed some of the foods cows produce as they got up close to a bovine during a free assembly sponsored by the Dairy Council of California's Mobile Dairy Classroom. "It's good for them to know where their milk comes from, where all their food comes from," said Mobile Dairy Classroom teacher Steve Miller in a cowboy hat, sunglasses and boots. The star of the show was 8-year-old Feisty, a 900-pound brown and white Jersey cow who makes her home at the Mission Viejo High School farm, Miller said.

About a dozen students, parents, pastors and advocates attended Wednesday’s Orange County Board of Education meeting to speak out against comments board President Alexandria Coronado made to the Daily Pilot regarding a state bill to create a Harvey Milk Day, in honor of the slain gay rights activist and San Francisco county supervisor. “If you want that lifestyle, don’t make my tax dollars pay for it, and don’t make me teach it to my children,” Coronado, who represents portions of Costa Mesa and other cities, told the Daily Pilot on Sept.

We’re willing to cut the Orange County Board of Education some slack about its decision last month to oppose commemorating May 22 statewide as Harvey Milk Day, in honor of the assassinated gay-rights activist and openly gay politician from San Francisco. We can understand that some practical considerations may have swayed the board’s five members to vote for a resolution against state Senate Bill 572, which calls for honoring Milk on his birthday. We call into question the words that streamed from the mouth of the board’s president, Alexandria Coronado, when a Daily Pilot reporter interviewed her about the 5-0 vote.

The Orange County Board of Education voted unanimously last week to oppose a state bill that would declare May 22 as Harvey Milk Day to honor the assassinated gay-rights activist and San Francisco councilman annually on his birthday. “This bill would provide that the governor proclaim May 22 of each year as Harvey Milk Day, and would designate that date as having special significance in public schools and educational institutions and would encourage those entities to conduct suitable commemorative exercises on that date,” reads an excerpt from state Senate Bill 572. “If you want that lifestyle, don’t make my tax dollars pay for it, and don’t make me teach it to my children,” county Board of Education President Alexandria Coronado, who represents portions of Costa Mesa and other cities, told the Daily Pilot on Wednesday.
