It's heartening that a politician of the rank of Sen. Dianne Feinstein -- who hails from Northern California, after all -- has taken a personal interest in the fate of Bluebird Canyon. Feinstein, who visited this week, was shocked by the state of the landslide zone so long after the event. Much has been done to remove destroyed homes, but much remains to make the area safe for the remaining residents farther up-canyon, not to mention giving displaced homeowners the ability to rebuild.

June Casagrande In a city that is a patchwork of distinct villages, the District 2 area composed of West Newport and Newport Heights is facing some of the city's biggest challenges. Surf culture, a legacy of wild Fourth of July parties and newsmaker Dennis Rodman have given the area an image as a wild extension of Surf City, far removed from the elegance of Fashion Island or the serene beauty of Corona del Mar. This year's Fourth of July celebration might have set in motion a slow, steady reversal of the area's identity as party central.

Greetings again. Only this time from a different perspective, as sports editor of the Daily Pilot, the greatest community newspaper in the nation -- and I'll make a thousand claims to support that belief. On those lines, it is an honor and privilege to announce today that yours truly, from ballparks and stadiums and gymnasiums and golf courses and tennis clubs all around the Newport-Mesa area, is taking over at the helm of the Pilot's sports ship. It is impossible, of course, to replace my predecessor, 35-year employee and 14-year sports editor Roger Carlson, whose enormous shoes I will never be able to fill.

AVIVA GOELMAN It's disheartening, I know, to continually read or hear about the hard times nonprofits face and how they have to struggle to survive. At the Costa Mesa Senior Center, we often experience that discouragement both as a nonprofit trying to stay afloat and as individuals who appreciate the value of service organizations. The exercise always seems endless. What new event can you think or what special venue is out there that will help us do what many find distasteful but so necessary, namely, raise money?

It's entirely possible that when Snoop Dogg or Rod Stewart serves appetizers at his house, he is looking at Timree Gold's plate designs. It's more plausible, though, that the music stars have her work on a mantle. Gold, a Newport Beach resident who custom-designs dishes and accessories, handed out her products inside gift bags at this year's American Music Awards. She incorporated artists' lyrics, hobbies and even record labels into colorful, personalized designs.

Newport Beach resident Kathy Fallon, a mother of three highly successful soccer athletes in the Corona del Mar system, has nothing short of a full plate. With a full-time job as a real estate agent and a full-time job as a mother, wife and soccer mom, friends and family look to her in amazement. Fallon's daughters -- Vanessa, 18, Taylor, 16, and Scarlett, 12 -- have climbed their way to the top of the soccer world at the right fullback position and they owe it in part to their mom. The woman, who was a stay-at-home mom for 15 years, was deeply involved in her children's education as a PTA Vice President at Lincoln Elementary and decided hands-on parenting was the key to overall success.

When Boron Little League was in need of having its 2010 season saved, Colby Bock Colby Bock and Newport Beach Little League stepped up to the plate. Boron was in dire need of securing proper baseball equipment for its upcoming season and without it, Joe Sheridan , umpire and chief for both the league and Little League District 51 (North), said that there would be no organized baseball for youngsters in this Kern County town of a little more than 2,000 residents. Opening Day for the league is scheduled for April 17. “It’s been tough around here and we needed all types of baseball equipment, from bats to helmets to catcher’s gear, A-to-Z, in order for us to have a season,” Sheridan said.

H ow about a high-end restaurant where you can have a moderately priced meal? Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale's is certainly an elegantly appointed space with superior service, urbane touches like amuses bouches, mignardises and even a pretty little package of cookies to take home; but if you bring your own wine (because there is no corkage fee) and if you limit your ordering to the extensive small-plate and first-course menus, you can have a very nice dinner indeed for a very decent price.

The first time Karen Coyne heard the word "vegan," she wasn't sure what it meant. The future Newport Harbor High School English teacher had sworn off red meat since junior high, but she still filled her diet with animal products — including the Baskin Robbins ice cream cone she craved every week. Then, in 1992, she met a college classmate who presented her with a recent book on eating habits: John Robbins' "Diet for a New America," which encouraged readers to forsake meat, eggs, milk and any other food that came from a living thing.
