Deepa Bharath Three months ago, Charlie Gabbard says, he helped police investigators install a global positioning satellite system in Scott Peterson's car. At the time, the longtime Newport Beach resident did not know much about the case. But Gabbard said he had a gut feeling that it was going to be a story that hit headlines across the nation. Peterson, 30, was arrested Friday in San Diego County on suspicion of killing his wife Laci Peterson, the Modesto woman who disappeared Christmas Eve. She was eight months' pregnant when she disappeared.

The storm system that blew in over the weekend may have only dusted the area with a light drizzle, but it could very well go out with a bang by the time the week is over. There is a chance of thunderstorms this morning, said meteorologist Noel Isla of the National Weather Service. The storm should give way to partly cloudy skies this afternoon. But while there isn't much rain on the way, surfers may be the biggest beneficiaries, as the storm should kick up some 3- to 5-foot waves today, diminishing over the rest of the week to 1 to 3 feet, Isla added.

Nearly 50 artists from around California will show off their artwork at a special exhibit that begins at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Orange County Museum of Art near Fashion Island. "2010 California Biennial" curator Sarah Bancroft said she hopes to give museumgoers an accurate overview of what's being produced in the contemporary art circles across the Golden State — not always an easy task. Bancroft traversed the state for more than a year in search of some of the finer artists up and down California's coast, eventually whittling them down to a pool of 300, then 150, then the final 45. Many of them are from San Diego and San Francisco, with few in points in between.

This week I was still focusing on the rain storms and their aftermath. I revisited the south county spots I’d checked during the storms and got some fun waves at San Juan Creek mouth. The flow went north, across the little jetty and pushed out a lot of sand. Doheny will be different for a while. The road into San Onofre is taped off just past the point so you have to walk to Old Man’s. The reefs south were empty — long walk with a SUP or 10-footer. Thursday I checked the San Gabriel River mouth, the Orange-L.

So many times I have heard about how hard it is to work with the city. As the executive director of the local nonprofit Glass House Ministry, I have just finished working on a community project where we, in conjunction with the Crossing Church, built an extension on a house for Bill Thomas. Bill is the young man who had a rare spinal stroke two years ago. Through this total experience, from helping the family arrange a no-interest loan that was made available by the city of Costa Mesa, to the building inspection process, the city of Costa Mesa was fantastic!
