Costa Mesa

Huntington Beach officials are working with the cities of Costa Mesa and Newport Beach to come up with ways to connect city and county parks that surround the Santa Ana River through common trails and signage. Once completed, the three cities’ parks and some county park land would extend for 1,000 acres in what will be called the Orange Coast River Park, said Tom Hatch, Costa Mesa assistant city manager. The Friends of Harbors, Beaches and Parks, a nonprofit organization aimed at preserving and beautifying beaches, parks and open space in the county, has formed a river park subcommittee.

Roald Dahl wrote unusual books for children that feature mystery and danger in complex story lines. “James and the Giant Peach” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” have already captured the attention of major filmmakers. Director Wes Anderson now takes on the challenge of Dahl’s wry and quirky tale “Fantastic Mr. Fox.” Hollywood superstars George Clooney and Meryl Streep voice the foxy husband and wife team. They deliver sparkling dialogue and rapid fire wit throughout the show.

Good eating to you this holiday What better time to talk about food than this national day of thanksgiving? Today is the day that people all over America feast on turkey, dressing, cranberries and pumpkin pie. Vegetables like yams, green beans and corn often accompany the feast. If the veggies are organic and locally grown, all the better. And that leads us into our topic of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Basically, CSAs are programs of subscription farming. Customers sign up and pay in advance for a share of the produce.
