Some are good, some are bad, some are cool, some are not. Not people. Ideas. The Costa Mesa Hilton and the Balboa Bay Club and Resort have come up with an idea that is way beyond cool and definitely good, which eliminates bad and not. On Friday, the Costa Mesa Hilton inaugurated a new service, providing London-style cabs to chauffeur its guests near and far in a distinctively British style. The Balboa Bay Club will kick off its version of the Anglicized cab service this week.

B.W. Cook The words "taste" and "style" are bantered about freely in society columns. Truthfully, there are only a minority of people in any given community at any given time that possess an innate sense of style that is expressed in their daily lives. OK, it sounds elitist. It sounds snobbish. And I suppose in an argument, I would lose this debate when asked, "How do you define taste and style?" Indeed, the definition of style is interpretive. Certainly, it is highly subjective.

June Casagrande It was the 1930s. Newport Harbor High School had just been dedicated, the biggest employer in town was the Western Canners Co., and the city and the harbor were still young. In a classic 1930s style, each of the city's public docks was adorned with finials -- decorative tops to the two posts at the end of each pier. The blue finials, carved out of solid oak, were an expression of style as well as a helpful reference for boaters who needed to know whether the piers they were approaching were public or private.

Not satisfied with just rattling away at a drum, the Taiko Project brings new meaning to the word rhythm. It isn’t just the beats they create that bring style to the Japanese drumming performing arts group, it is the dynamic movements in their choreography, the grace in an arm movement, and the power in a step or yelp that breathes contemporary life into the ancient cultural art form. And the group was able to display its modern style of Taiko — Japanese for drumming — to patrons of the Orange County Fair on Tuesday night.

JUNE CASAGRANDE My cat, Eddie, has finally confronted his greatest demon, overcome a lifelong fear and learned to stand up to an oppressive power. After nearly 12 years of cowering, Eddie decided recently (perhaps inspired by the loss of his brother, Stevie) that life's too short to live in fear of the vacuum cleaner. Eddie, born a stray and abused by neighborhood boys before I took him in, still runs in terror from every friend who walks in my front door.

Kendra Scott's jewelry empire began with wire-wrapped stones, a tea box and $500. Oh, and her 3-month-old Baby Bjorn-clad son, Cade, for company. In 2002, the Austin, Texas, resident dipped into her savings to convert her passion for fashion into a full-time business. Her decision, although decried by many, was aimed at digging her family out of a particularly deep financial pit. The risk paid off when every local boutique door she knocked on led to an order. Armed with a mini-collection of only about two dozen pieces, she kept her promise to her husband and doubled their starting costs.

NEWPORT BEACH - Kenzie Purcifull and Riley Gerdau have no choice but to wear matching uniforms when playing doubles together during the high school girls' tennis season. They did so voluntarily Thursday afternoon at The Tennis Club Junior Tournament, in peach-colored outfits with white skirts. "We forgot our bows," Gerdau said, and Purcifull nodded. "Tomorrow, tomorrow," Purcifull said. The Corona del Mar High players do indeed have one last chance to completely accessorize their look.

SEAL BEACH - Anyone who was at Seal Beach Tennis Center on Saturday afternoon was able to witness history, both individual and team.

Brymer staked his claim as the top boys' tennis player in Southern Section history. The scary part is that the 2013 Trojans might be able to say the same thing as a team.

Many of us believe the college admissions process has spiraled out of control. Plenty among us also feel that our education system has become too test-centric. And at the intersection of the two lies the SAT, the most dreaded, derided and feared test in the world. How loathed is the SAT? I googled the term "hate the SAT" and found chatrooms where anxious students unloaded their grievances against the college admissions test. It "ruins lives" was a typical comment. One YouTube video showed a student beating up his SAT study guide.

Q: Does God ever tell us to do something, or to believe something, that contradicts the Bible? A friend of mine says the Bible is out of date and we need to let the Spirit guide us in new directions, but I'm not so sure about that. — S.Y. * A: You're right to be skeptical of your friend's views — because God never tells us to do anything that He has clearly forbidden in His Word, the Bible. God does not change, and neither does His Word. After all, one reason God has given us His Word is so we can know what is true and right — and also what isn't true and right.
