The numbers and surveys cited by Steve Smith are not the only verifiable sources out there (“Religion good for kids,” Feb. 24). The nationwide murder rate from 1996 to 2007 includes these Bible Belt states in the top 10: Louisiana No. 1, Alabama No. 3, South Carolina No. 5, Georgia No. 6, Mississippi No. 9 and Arkansas No. 10. There’s not a single northern or ‘secular’ state in the group. No New York. No California. Massachusetts, the seat of secular liberalism in America, comes in at No. 37, followed by Washington, Minnesota, Utah, South Dakota, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, Iowa and New Hampshire.

With Christmas behind us and the new year nearly upon us, I spent some time this week thinking about what next year will bring: presidential politics. The first voting will start Thursday and end Nov. 4, when we pick the next president of the red, white and blue. By Thursday night we should have a better idea who will be the Democrat and Republican nominees for president. Iowa, with a population less than Orange County, will hold its caucuses in living rooms and meeting rooms across the state that day. How Iowans vote will have an enormous impact on the race.

A woman accused of embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from her former Newport Beach church pleaded not guilty Monday, days after authorities extradited her from her new home in New Hampshire. Cheryl Lean (pronounced Lee-Ann) Granger, 45, is charged with eight felonies, each with multiple sentencing enhancements related to her 3 1/2 -year stint as the bookkeeper for Newport Harbor Lutheran Church. Prosecutors say between September 2002 and February 2006 Granger addressed more than 170 checks to her husband, Richard Granger Jr., their business, her credit cards, and herself by forging officials’ signatures.

Danette Goulet Dressed in aprons and bonnets, knickers and tricorns, fifth-grade students at Lincoln Elementary School on Wednesday had an old-fashioned good time. The colonial life they have been learning about in class came alive for the children as they tried their hand at a variety of 18th century activities. Divided into four colonies -- New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts -- students began working on such tasks as embroidery, tin-smithing and butter-churning.

In the bitter New Hampshire cold of late December a switch was flipped and Weston Dunlap's game was turned on. The Newport Harbor High senior basketball player does not know why it happened then and neither does Sailors Coach Larry Hirst. The two, along with Dunlap's teammates, just know that a change took place. As Newport Harbor headed back east to play in the Keene State Classic in Keene, N.H. the Sailors were stumbling, on a two-game losing skid, and Dunlap's play was erratic, single digits in scoring one night, up to 23 points the next game, then back down to 13. Sometime between that second loss and the start of the three-day tournament Dunlap changed.

Young Chang He had a crush on her. She hung out with him to play spy because her best friend had a crush on him. The stint lasted a couple weeks during their junior year at Corona del Mar High School. Howard Trevor and Marete Kunze then graduated in 1974. They didn't talk for the next 28 years -- both got married, moved away, she moved back, he didn't, he had kids, she didn't. Through the decades, each also got divorced. More than a year ago, an announcement about a high school reunion led Trevor to a Web site with Kunze's e-mail address.

NEWPORT BEACH — HuffingtonPost.com creator Arianna Huffington is hoping to spearhead a new trend: sending the political poll the way of horoscopes and betting lines. Huffington said America is a country obsessed with polling results — especially just before November — at a Thursday-night event organized by Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties. “We saw how accurate they were in New Hampshire, right? USA Today on Monday, before New Hampshire, had Barack Obama ahead by 13 points,” said Huffington, the keynote speaker for a celebration of the 35th anniversary of Roe V. Wade.

Every year, Newport Harbor High Coach Larry Hirst and his boys’ basketball team get away from Orange County. Sometimes as far as they can. The destination, whether it’s Keene, N.H., or San Francisco, proves to benefit the team, on and off the court. The trips unite the team and introduce players to what’s outside of their Newport Beach digs. It’s an exciting time, from riding the different mass transit systems such as BART and cable cars in the Bay Area, or touring colleges.

For two years Newport Harbor Lutheran Church leaders were able to keep quiet about the police investigation surrounding their finances. Detectives told them the more people who knew, the more likely the suspects would be tipped off. But when Cheryl Granger, who goes by her middle name Lean (“Lee-Ann”), was flown from her New Hampshire home back to Orange County last week to face charges of embezzling $320,000 from the church, there was no fighting it any longer, church leaders said.

With 6-foot-8 center Kyle Caldwell sitting out the first quarter because he missed a practice, the Sailors introduced 6-7 forward Weston Dunlap to Estancia. Estancia, preparing to see Caldwell early, couldn't even handle Dunlap. When Caldwell returned in the second quarter, the two powered through the undersized Eagles.
