This was not a political rally. Nor was it an anti-war demonstration. Those who came to Fairview Park on Saturday heard that message over and over again. "We want to help redefine peace as an action," said the Rev. Jim Turrell, senior pastor of Costa Mesa's Center for Spiritual Discovery, from a stage temporarily planted at the park. And that action? Volunteerism, Turrell said. Turrell is co-chairman of Peace Centers Inc., which co-sponsored the second annual "Celebration for Peace" festival.

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.

NATURAL PERSPECTIVES Rivers can be beautiful features of a landscape. They can be dangerous, too. Early residents of this area were plagued by floods during years of unusually heavy rain. For example, during the winter of 1861-62, storm after storm pounded the coast for nearly four weeks. The Santa Ana River became a raging torrent that flooded land in three counties, with water standing four feet deep up to four miles away from the river. The Great Flood of 1938 was the most damaging in county history.

Regarding your article "City makes information easier to find" (Aug. 26), the salaries and benefits you described seem quite generous to me. Now, the city should take the next step in its effort to provide us with more information. Why not outline the content of the benefits packages? Secondly, I disagree with the city's definition of a loan. According to the Webster's School Dictionary, a loan is: "money lent out at interest" or "something loaned for the borrower's temporary use. " Based on this information, if what the city calls a loan does not have to be paid back while individuals remain in service, wouldn't you agree that the term "salary enhancement" might be more appropriate?
