Girls Inc. looked colorful on Wednesday afternoon, as the Assisteens — a group of high school seniors and juniors from the Assistance League of Newport-Mesa — hosted a Halloween party for the girls. For two hours after school, the older students organized games, held a trick-or-treating booth and handed out costumes and bags of candy. The Assisteens have adopted Girls Inc. as one of their projects for the 2006-07 school year, and they came along at the right time; the 43 girls in the nonprofit this year make an all-time enrollment record.

Andrew Edwards A 29-count indictment filed Wednesday alleges a Newport Coast doctor with three clinics in Orange County conspired with his former assistant to under medicate patients treated for AIDS, HIV and hepatitis. The charges filed against doctor George Steven Kooshian, 54, and Virgilio Lopez Opinion, 45, include conspiracy, healthcare fraud and making false statements relating to healthcare matters.

Deirdre Newman When Lisa Ackerman's son, Jeff, was diagnosed with autism when he was 2 1/2, the frustration of dealing with the condition was compounded by her inability to find a doctor who could treat it. After trying seven local doctors, Ackerman hit the Internet and found a doctor in Florida who was highly recommended by other parents of autistic children. Ironically the next week, Ackerman ran into the doctor, Jerry Kartzinel, at an autism conference and sought him out. "He sat with myself and my husband," she recalled.

-- Sean Hiller THOUGHTS FROM THE SCENE: As many times as I went to the local beaches, I had never been to the tide pools at Crystal Cove State Beach. Much of north Orange County's beaches are long stretches of sand, offering plenty of space for fun in the sun. But at beaches like Pelican Point, being able to shuffle over exposed reef and see live sea creatures was a treat. I felt like I was somewhere far away from Orange County, maybe some far off beach in Mexico.

Special education students were given a special Halloween treat Friday when they went to the Newport-Mesa Unified School District office to trick-or-treat in a safe environment created just for them. A conference room was turned into a haunted house for the day, with caution tape, strobe lights and a machine that produced fog-filled dry-ice bubbles. The tradition began with the district’s transportation department, and has expanded to several others like student services, human resources and information technology.

"Respecting others is not judging by what a person looks like but by what kind of person they are." Chauntelle Ruehman, 13 "It would have to be getting to know a person before I judge them." Ellie Edles, 13 "You shouldn't judge people by their physical outcome but by what's inside. Don't poke people or point." Rachel Golden, 13 "Respecting them means using manners, being polite to your elders, and I guess that's it. And using 'Yes, sir' or 'Yes, ma'am' with your teachers and parents."

Everyone who's enjoyed the Back Bay during the past 25 years owes a debt of gratitude to Fran Robinson. Robinson, who died June 30, and her husband, Frank, are the main and major reason why the bay has protection as an ecological habitat. Rather than let the Irvine Co. develop the Bay Back in 1969, the couple sued to stop the county from handing over the land. Four years later, a judge ruled in their favor, paving the way for the state to buy the land and turn it into into a preserve.

Disney's acclaimed nature films offer vivid portrayals of animals in the wild. They entertain and educate young viewers in the biological realities of Earth's habitats. But for many years, this documentary style of observation has taken a back seat to the amplified world of zany computer animation. Silly cartoon animals dominate screen fare for our children. Talking birds, dogs, donkeys and penguins wisecrack jokes in trivial screwball plots. But Disney's new wildlife film "Bears" is an outstanding counterpoint to all that nonsense.

Brooks Podolec is only 18 months old, but he's already a powerful influence in the Orange County retail world. His parents, Julie and Brad Podolec, sought last year to launch a popsicle business that would provide stores with an all-natural treat - and also provide their son, who had begun teething, with a healthy snack. As Modern Pop took shape, Brooks served as a sampler for the 30-some flavors the Podolecs tried out. Thanks in part to Brooks' discretion, Modern Pop now offers a streamlined menu of six popsicles, which it provides to local venues and sells out of its cart in front of Sapphire Laguna restaurant in Laguna Beach.

In the land of bacon-wrapped this and barbecued-smothered that, it can be hard to find anything healthy at the Orange County Fair. Especially if you're a vegetarian. Animal-derived delights are everywhere you look, from the oversized turkey legs to the Krispy Kreme sloppy joe. There are, however, a few hidden gems at the fair for those living meatless in a meat-filled world - and they were not slathered in batter, deep-fried or sugar-filled. As an experiment, my omnivorous colleague Jill Cowan and I (a sometimes fish-eating, oftentimes vegetarian)

Ahoy! April means different things to different people - like making the last minute tax-filing deadline, or the Lexus Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race - but to me, April means the Newport Boat Show. In my column last week, I mentioned how a couple of states have capped their vessel sales tax to try to lure more boat sales to their states. Additionally, did you know that the large boat shows in Florida generate more for the state's economy in a few weeks than the citrus industry generates in a whole year?
