David Yurman recently opened at South Coast Plaza. The success story of Sybil and David Yurman, who started David Yurman in 1979 -- America's leading luxury jewelry designer -- began with a background of 20 years experience in sculpture and design. Their signature cable bracelet took off in 1983 -- a twisted helix in sterling silver and 18 karat gold with gemstones on its finials -- and has spawned an entire Cable Collection. The designs are timeless; a jewelry piece purchased years ago can easily be worn with a new piece.

Young Chang Pastry chef Sheldon Millett calls the Gingerbread Village at the Four Seasons Hotel a labor of love. Containing 100 pounds of molding chocolate, 95 pounds of gingerbread dough, 20 pounds of marzipan, 1,252 egg whites, 900 pretzel sticks, 2,400 pieces of candy and 2 million black sesame seeds, it's understandable why the Newport Beach chef uses the word "labor." And when you notice that the golfer on the greens of the miniature, all-sugar Pelican Hill Golf Course has snow dusting his shoulders, that the marzipan Keystone Kops and firefighters are standing outside a combo police/fire house with Dalmatians lining a snow-padded walkway, and when you see the pretzel-stick benches and the cinnamon stick bonfires and how the roads are red and cobblestoned, you understand why Millett's labor is one of love.

After spending Labor Day weekend on Catalina Island, Valinda Martin boarded a ferry for the short trip back to Newport Beach. The vessel bounced on the choppy water. Martin, seated in the back, landed hard as the boat rose and fell. Suddenly, she lost all sensation in her legs. It was Sept. 6, 1993, and Martin's been in a wheelchair ever since. Life changed overnight for the former women's clothing sales representative, who was used to lugging 30- to 40-pound bags in and out of her car up to seven times a day - in four-inch platform shoes.
