Greer Wylder The Spaghetti Bender is a childhood nickname of its fun-loving founder, Lorenzo Eugenio Pasini from Riomaggiore, Italy. The restaurant is one of Newport's oldest. In 1969, the late Lorenzo Pasini and Ailie Maria Pasini (fondly remembered as Papa and Mama) opened the casual Italian restaurant on Coast Highway in West Newport. The couple started out as a butler and cook working for wealthy families. Before they opened a string of restaurants, they even worked at the Encino Ranch house of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard in the early 1940s.

Lolita Harper Cadillac Escalades and rusty ten speeds were parked outside Someone Cares Soup Kitchen on Thanksgiving Day. A man with a shiny gold watch put his arm around an elderly man who wore glasses with broken frames, sharing a tale that made both men chuckle. A young woman, dressed in the latest cargo pants and jean jacket, was serving cold drinks to a young teenager wearing dime store threads. Mother Lourine Clemons, whose skin was a rich shade of mahogany, fixed the bib around the neck of the little girl sitting next to her, whose skin was as pale as porcelain.

In John Campbell's response to the workers and citizens on or near Ground Zero after 9/11 ("That's Debatable," June 28), it seems he suggests they might apply to Al Qaeda for necessary health care due to their exposure to chemicals after the bombing. The logic of this retort seems to echo the responses of other neo-cons in their constant illogic toward all Arab countries, even though the terrorists were largely from Saudi Arabia. My question is: Did Campbell visit Ground Zero soon after the attack?

Deepa Bharath WESTSIDE -- The white Chevy van had "Someone Cares Soup Kitchen" boldly displayed on its windows. But that did not stop someone who apparently didn't care from stealing the van, which the charity used daily to pick up donations and groceries to feed people in need. Volunteers who came in Monday morning and noticed the van missing could not believe somebody would steal it, said George Neureuther, the soup kitchen's development director.

In the back of Someone Cares Soup Kitchen on the day before Thanksgiving, Lorrie Sanchez rasped out instructions to two volunteers straining out turkey stock for the stuffing. For more than a dozen years, Sanchez has run a kitchen without a regular staff, without recipes and without knowing what ingredients she'll have the next day. But she does know that hundreds of people will be waiting outside on 19th Street, expecting something to eat. On Wednesday, she geared up for Thanksgiving dinner by overseeing the preparation of tubs of homemade stuffing, vats of sweet potatoes and more than 40 turkeys.

Costa Mesa Mayor Eric Bever this week clarified earlier comments he made suggesting that two of the Westside's nonprofits close because they attract homeless people. Bever said during Tuesday's council meeting that he only directed city CEO Tom Hatch to investigate, not try to shutter, the Someone Cares Soup Kitchen and Share Our Selves (SOS) for possibly violating municipal ordinances. "That means he goes through a process of steps as outlined by our nuisance-business ordinance," Bever said.

"Is that enough stones?" asked Ianniello, the Newport-Mesa Unified School District's nutrition services operations manager for Network for a Healthy California . The first-grade class, all wearing green crowns with large shamrocks on the front, shouted "no" until Ianniello added two more stones.

COSTA MESA — At the third annual Someone Cares Soup Kitchen Thanksgiving Eve feast, the kitchen was abuzz as dozens of low-income and limited-income senior citizens from nearby Bethel Towers rubbed elbows with the homeless. "The price is right here, and it's something I need — that's for sure," said Lawrence Bubka, 83, who has lived in Costa Mesa for 20 years. He receives almost $900 in Social Security and disability checks a month. A former graphic artist and son of a Polish immigrant who came to California as a tailor in the early 1900s, Bubka dressed in a gray fedora and tweed jacket for Wednesday's meal.
