FRANKIE A 2-year-old tabby cat named Frankie had quite a scare Sunday night when he escaped from his caregivers in Fashion Island's parking structure. He had been taken to the mall by the Community Animal Network for an adoption fair. One minute Frankie was under a sport-utility vehicle, but then he vanished. Volunteers combed the bushes and the parking lot seeking to re-rescue Frankie, without success. Searchers returned to the vehicle, hoping to find the missing cat underneath.

Assemblyman Tom Harman and City Councilman Gil Coerper have joined together on an idea that the City Council should waste no time approving: adoption of a Camp Pendleton Marine battalion. Like so many others at Camp Pendleton, members of the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines -- or the "Thundering Third" -- are among the first to deploy when the government calls on our armed services. They have already have served tours of duty in Iraq. When they are stationed overseas, it is not just the Marines suffering the obvious hardship of being far from home and in such dangerous circumstances.

June is in need of an active household, preferably with children or other dogs, who can keep up with her energetic nature.

Sherbert is a 2½-year-old American pit bull terrier mix, who likes to show that she is as sweet as her name. Found in June as a stray, Sherbert has been cooped up in a kennel far too long. She enjoys playing with toys and, understandably, is very happy to get outside for walks with volunteers. Although selective about canine friends, she is friendly with many of the other shelter dogs. It appears she has had some training, as she is clearly housebroken and knows the sit command.

Huntington Beach has adopted its first Bicycle Master Plan to assist the city in creating a better cycling infrastructure. The City Council on Monday largely expressed support for the plan, but it narrowly passed on a 4-3 vote after Councilman Jim Katapodis opted to amend it to exclude bike lanes on Beach Boulevard north of Ellis Avenue, saying the roadways aren't set up to accommodate bikes. The plan would serve as a framework to aid city planners and public works engineers in developing safer routes for bicyclists as well as help in acquiring grants to fund these improvements, according to a presentation given by transportation manager Bob Stachelski.

Seth is a sweet little terrier mix who charms everyone. He was found as a stray in February and is sadly overweight. His matted fur weighed him down even further. In fact, he lost 10 pounds when the matting was removed. As his handsome coat grows out, Seth, who is about 8 years old, is also watching his diet and enjoying regular exercise, slowly shedding those unwanted pounds. He is now seeking the right adoptive family to support his healthful new lifestyle. Seth is well-mannered, house-trained and neutered.

A few people and many open hearts have made a big difference for one orphanage in Mexico. For the past 12 years, Jack and Vicki Dishon and Humberto and Emma Macias from Huntington Beach's Seaside Community Church have organized a monthly trip to Tijuana to help the Casa Hogar Ebenezer orphanage. The two couples gather a group of about 12 church members and travel to the home they helped buy and improve. The orphanage is one of very few in Mexico to be accredited, said Jack Dishon, which means it is checked monthly by the government.
