An 11-year-old boy and his two friends were hospitalized last week after unknowingly eating marijuana cookies. The children were taken to Huntington Beach Hospital on Oct. 20 for marijuana poisoning after eating cookies a neighbor had dropped off, said Lt. Russell Reinhart. Huntington Beach resident Jason Davis, 40, dropped off the cookies to the parents of the boy hospitalized. The parents were allegedly unaware the cookies contained pot and set the wrapped cookies aside as an early holiday gift, Reinhart said.

Mike Swanson A classroom of second-graders at the Hebrew Academy in Huntington Beach decided Monday that lemonade and cookies could serve as key contributors to constructing the U.S.S. New York from recycled steel taken from the Twin Towers. Susan McCoy's 24-student class, part of a preschool through 12th-grade private school recently named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education, is hoping to raise $1,000 toward the construction of a Navy assault ship named in New York's honor.

DINING OUT In the Scandinavian countries, the Yule log burns bright in the fireplace and the kitchen is warm with the baking of cookies flavored with cardamom and cinnamon. The vision of Santa Lucia with her crown of candles rings in the Christmas season, one to please the child in every heart. What better way to share the season than with cookies and cakes from the Great Dane Baking Company on Warner Avenue at Goldenwest Street in Huntington Beach, owned by baker Keld Pedersen and his wife, Jodi?

Mike Sciacca It was a hectic Saturday for Jessica Marr and Erika Plummer last weekend, going from mixing it up in the water to mixing ingredients with water. The two Huntington Beach High students, both varsity water polo players and starters, traveled to San Diego County with the Oilers to participate in the Poway Tournament. As soon as the tournament action was complete, the girls hopped into their car and headed back to Huntington Beach, arriving late afternoon to get ready to begin their next big endeavor -- a "Cookie Ministry."

The bell rings at 12:15 p.m. I walk out of class to find the shortest lunch line. Yes! There is a line with only 15 people in it — that’s only like a 20-minute wait — so I hurry up and buy my Pizza Hut Personal Pizza, two cookies and a soda for $4 and take it back to “our spot” to meet up with my friends who got stuck in longer lines. This is a normal lunch day for many students at Huntington Beach High School. What’s wrong with this picture?

For the last two weeks, I have been researching the world of DIY gifting; which for those not great with acronyms it means: Do-It-Yourself. The recession, which is now one of my favorite things to blame everything on, has made being crafty and thrifty kinda chic. Suddenly, buying secondhand clothing is being touted as the new way to shop wisely and handmade gifts are no longer just for the artists or kindergartners in your family. Through the years, I have become a cookie baker, giver and tester.

Angelique Flores HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Eleven-year-old Alex DeVries makes wishes come true. In fact, she's made two wishes come true. Following her family's generous example and taking a few ideas from some books she had read, the Huntington Beach girl called the Make-A-Wish Foundation last December with the desire to do more than help with the chapter's toy drive. On her own, the fifth-grader raised enough money to grant 5-year-old Sophia's wish to have her bedroom decorated during the holidays.

It is both a good and bad thing that Alice’s Breakfast in the Park got a stay of execution from the City Council last year. Good in the sense that we have now until Labor Day to enjoy this culinary treasure, and bad because the end will come sooner than we all realize. I have made that mistake in the past. I just assume an icon will be around forever and neglect to visit it, figuring that I will get around to it at some point. Brown Derby and the original Spago are two that immediately come to mind that I didn’t get into, and now they are gone.

Miki Sessler was distraught when her husband Bert, a retired Marine, died in December 2003. She wasn’t sure what to do with herself; she felt lost. Inspired by Bert, Sessler soon found her new calling. She founded Operation Beanies For our Service Members. It was a simple idea: she would knit beanies and encourage others to do the same. The beanies would then be shipped to American soldiers. “He just gave me the idea, it hit me in the head,” Sessler said.

Girls Scout cookies and hamantaschen have at least two things in common. Both are tempting can’t-eat-just-one confections. Both make the scene during the Christian, pre-Easter, Lenten fast. Which for many makes the tasty treats verboten. Why Girl Scout cookies are sold at this time of year, I can’t tell you. Hamantaschen, though, accompany the Jewish festival of Purim and Purim intersects Lent. This year, it begins at sundown tonight coinciding with Maundy Thursday, which along with Good Friday is one of the most solemn days on the Western Christian calendar.

I baked several dozen Christmas cookies last week. I had hoped to not gain weight over the holidays, but you know how baking cookies goes. Whoops, that cookie is broken, I'd better eat it. Whoops, those are burned, I'd better eat them. Whoops, I gained another pound. The cookies were mainly for the small crew from the Orange County Conservation Corps who worked with me at Bolsa Chica last Thursday. The kids were very appreciative. We spent the morning chopping out a large Brazilian pepper tree and tossing debris overhead into the dumpster.
