Young Chang If you've ever wondered what to put in the basket, whether to take paper or china, whether to do chicken or salmon and whether there is that one item you should never be without, wonder no more. Picnic experts share their wisdom. Theme. Very important to have a theme. You will wonder less about how to plan your menu -- a Mediterranean theme, for instance, will eliminate the debate between feta and cheddar. "It kind of lets your food fall into the category," said Bill Barber, a program coordinator for culinary arts at Orange Coast College.

"Park ambas- sador." I like it. Very stylish. If a park ambassador is what you've always longed to be, Newport Beach may be looking for you. Don't be shy. You know who you are. When the other kids shouted "astronaut" or "doctor" or "firefighter" when asked what they wanted to be, "park ambassador" was the stuff of your dreams. Well, sailor, your ship may have just come in. Like all cities, Newport Beach has to deal with those awkward moments when two groups are trying to occupy the same park or playing field at the same time.

The Fourth District Court of Appeal has sided with the California Coastal Commission in a battle over a retired Corona del Mar couple’s beachfront picnic spot and thatched palapa. The Coastal Commission ordered George and Sharlee McNamee to tear down their beach oasis in 2004. Set on a private portion of beach at the base of a cliff above Corona del Mar State Beach, the McNamees’ patch of sand includes two picnic tables; a shower and bathroom; storage lockers; a built-in barbecue; palapa; and some flowering plants.

If they build the park with the same enthusiasm and planning that went into the party to launch the park, the so-called "Jewel of Orange County" will indeed be a community treasure. The launch party for the Great Park Conservancy was one of the biggest events in recent Orange County history, and it enjoyed a suitably grandiose stage: the runway of the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. Organizers Janet and James "Walkie" Ray, along with Teddie and Michael Ray, pulled out all the stops to throw a wild party that attracted nearly 800 guests.

After a six-year legal battle with the California Coastal Commission, the fate of a retired Corona del Mar couple’s beachfront picnic spot and thatched palapa lies with the Fourth District Court of Appeal. A Santa Ana courthouse was packed with supporters of Ocean Boulevard residents George and Sharlee McNamee on Thursday as a three-judge panel heard oral arguments in the couple’s case, which has grown from a squabble over a barbecue and some picnic tables into a fight between the rights of private property owners versus the public’s access to the beach.

Jeana Lee made a wrong turn at Polk Street in San Francisco, which turned out to be the right turn for just about everything else in her life. It was the first day of culinary school, and fellow student Robert Whitesell helped Jeana find her way to class. He even walked her home at the end of the day. Now they are co-owners of Picnics Deli in Costa Mesa. And that's the right turn for Costa Mesa/Newport residents. After their graduation from San Francisco's California Culinary Academy, Jeana and Robert were married.

For nearly 10 years, George and Sharlee McNamee have waged a legal battle against the state on their very own turf. Now, it appears that the Corona del Mar couple has finally lost the case against the California Coastal Commission, which pitted questions about rights of private property owners versus the public's right to beach access. Last week, the California Supreme Court turned down the McNamees' petition to review a lower court's decision in the drawn-out dispute over a picnic area owned by them next to Corona del Mar State Beach.

The Costa Mesa City Council on Tuesday approved a $1,514 stipend for Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer and Councilman Steve Mensinger, who plan to attend the annual International Council of Shopping Centers convention in Las Vegas later this month.
