Young Chang You think you know what the parable of the prodigal son is about, but if you read it the way Dom Garino does, you might realize there's more to know. Same with the Bible parable of the good Samaritan and the one about the laborers in the vineyard. Garino, a Bible study leader at St. Mark Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach, teaches an ongoing course every Monday titled "Re-Imagine the World -- An Introduction to the Parables of Jesus."

Young Chang Ever heard of a group called Minibar? How about Trespassers William? Or a form of music called shoegaze? No? Never? Well, you're not the only ones. Nic Harcourt of 89.9 FM KCRW is joining with the Eclectic Orange Festival to help Southern California musicians without record company contracts rise out of obscurity. Called "Unsigned Indies," the free Sept. 28 concert will feature performers selected by Harcourt, host of KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" and musical director for the station.

Young Chang Linda Eder prefers using her belting voice over her head voice. You know, like when you stay in the lower, un-falsetto range instead of going all opera on your crowd. "I do use my head voice, and I certainly use it when singing soft and pretty, but when it comes to singing a big song, if you want to have power, you can get a certain amount of volume with the head voice, but you don't really get the goose-bump factor," the Broadway star said.

Young Chang You hear the words "grieving" and "healing" and "book for the grieving soul" and immediately expect a how-to book. A book that tells you it's ok to feel angry, that the anger will pass and what you might do to hasten that passing. Jorie Nolen's "The Hidden Gardens of Life's Winter" doesn't say anything like that. It's Nolen's opinion, in fact, that society is too often inundated with instructions on what we need or should do and 12 steps for everything.

Young Chang He asked her parents first. He got down on one knee. Family members already knew what was going on and waited just a wall away, video camera poised. And as if things weren't enviably wonderful enough, the whole shebang took place in the rainy, dew-ey, ever-romantic grayness of Ireland. "My mom and my family were going to be over there for this time period and Ally's mom is a bit adventurous and she wanted to go and we invited her along," said Kyle Scrimgeour, the groom-to-be.

Young Chang Of course the first question Robert "Kool" Bell had to field was, why's he "Kool?" It's a nickname from his childhood days in New Jersey, he said. When he first formed his band decades ago, they were a jazz quartet called the Jazziacs. As their sound grew more into funk and R&B, they tried the name Kool and the Flames. They settled into Kool and the Gang. The veteran '70s and '80s band, best known for tracks including "Celebration" and "Summer Madness," will settle into the Taste of Newport for its second time as members take the stage tonight.

Young Chang It is Michael McDonald's way to let chance and spontaneity rule what happens, to not "presuppose" what he should do, to throw music up in the air and let it fall where it will. In the late '70s, the music fell into stardom's lap and ushered McDonald to platinum-status fame as part of the Doobie Brothers. Today, after a subsequent solo career in the early '80s best known for the single "I Keep Forgettin," McDonald is still playing music and letting it get dictated by chance with the Michael McDonald Band.

Young Chang They crazy-fied what was once dismissed as yesterday's jive, the sort appreciated by seniors over cigarettes and brandy because of its pre-wartime nostalgia. And in hyping the '40s and '50s swing genre with a whole lot of energy, a swirl of eclectic influences and the utterly today-ness of each of the band's members, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy stationed itself at the forefront of the swing revival that crept out from underground in the '90s.

Young Chang Just as many showed up this year. Femia Scarfone, president of the Associated Students of Orange Coast College, guesses that attendance might have even been slightly higher than last Sept. 11. It was a turnout that proved to organizers of OCC's Circle of Remembrance that while students have had exactly 12 months to mourn and heal, the terrorist attacks from a year ago will never be forgotten. About 2,000 students and faculty held hands and stood in a circle for a Sept.

Young Chang The story of banding together for a common cause and doing whatever it takes to help that cause triggers a good dose of warm fuzzies. It even bonds the actors portraying the banding characters in the "go team!" story that is "The Full Monty." But so does being naked. "It's my first role where I have to be so naked on stage," said actor Michael J. Todaro, who plays Dave Bukatinsky for the Broadway musical comedy version of the hit film.
