The roar of cheering students drowned out the buzz of the electric hair clippers being used to shave John Muir Middle School Principal Dan Hacking's bright pink hair into a Mohawk Wednesday at the school's Family Fun Night. Hacking had agreed to have his hair shaved and styled into a colored Mohawk if students raised $2,500 for the Red Cross to help Hurricane Katrina Victims. Assistant Principal David Cole agreed to join him if the students raised more than $3,000.

At an awards ceremony, most people expect to get something. But at the Harbour View Elementary School's Pelican Pride assembly, 12 girls gave something away: a foot or more of hair each. As classmates watched, the first- to fifth-graders gave a part of themselves to the charity Locks of Love, which gives free or low-cost hairpieces to children with long-term or permanent hair loss from disease or trauma. The whole event Friday was part of a monthly assembly recognizing achievement in academics or the community, said principal Roni Ellis.

Huntington Beach High School students shaved their heads at lunch Monday to help clean up the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. A line of students, mostly male, waited their turn to lose their hair to contribute to what is predicted to be the worst oil spill in history. About 60 students donated their hair at the Buzz Cut-a-Thon put on by the Huntington Beach High School student newspaper, Oiler Ink. "I think it's pretty amazing that kids are willing to go to that extreme for a good cause," said Jason Ross, the assistant principal of guidance.

Mike Sciacca A friend fondly calls Lorena Garlington her "Hollywood glamour girl." At times, she can be found sporting a flower in her hair, or wearing flamboyant colors, so says Regina Waszczak, Garlington's friend and neighbor from Wycliffe Gardens in Huntington Beach. "She's just a scream, a real one-of-a-kind person," the 82-year-old Waszczak said. "I just love my friend." Garlington looked pretty in pink -- her color of choice -- and wore two flowers in her coiffed hair on Tuesday, the day of her 103rd birthday.

Mike Sciacca It was a typical fall Saturday for Rebecca Putt as she got ready for the day ahead. Getting dressed quickly in an effort to get out the door on time, Rebecca, who turned 11 on Sept. 19, fussed with her hair, an all-important detail that any young girl cannot overlook. In Rebecca's case, hair care is a must. You see, this precarious youngster has become a master at styling her hair quickly in a pony tail, whether she adds a twist to finish off the coiffure or adds a rubber band at the end of it, all in an effort to keep the pony tail neatly in place.

“God is a concept by which we measure our pain,” John Lennon sang in “God,” a song penned for the 1970 “Plastic Ono Band” album. What he meant remains anyone’s guess. Whatever Lennon meant, tying God to our pain was no more original than suggesting God is a man-made concept. Let tragedy strike and not far behind it are plaintive cries. “Where was God?” “God, why?” “What kind of God allows this?” In “The Problem of Pain,” C.S. Lewis defined pain as “unmasked, unmistakable evil.

I don't know who wrote the piece that follows, but I think that every aging person will be able to relate to it: "The other day a young person asked me how I felt about being old. I was taken aback, for I do not think of myself as old. Upon seeing my reaction, she was immediately embarrassed, but I explained that it was an interesting question, and I would ponder it and let her know. "Old age, I decided, is a gift. I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be. Oh, not my body!

Vic and I were blessed with a new baby granddaughter the morning of Dec. 31. Megan Nicole Murray, daughter of our son Scott and his wife, Nicole, weighed in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces. She has coal-black hair and a set of lungs that could earn her a job as an emergency alert siren some day. I don?t think I?ve ever heard a louder baby. And cute? Wow, is she ever. Not that we?re prejudiced or anything. While Nicole is recuperating in the hospital and Scott is taking care of Megan, I?ve been taking care of our twin granddaughters, Allison and Lauren.

The man accused of gunning down eight people at a Seal Beach hair salon in 2011 will plead guilty to eight counts of special circumstances murder and one count of attempted murder, his lawyer said Monday. Scott Dekraai, who, according to prosecutors, was seeking revenge on his ex-wife when he opened fire at the Salon Meritage, has "felt for a while that he really needs to give at least the victims the sense that he's not seeking to have this go on forever," said his lawyer, Assistant Public Defender Scott Sanders.

The Huntington Beach Hair Co. is planning a party to show off its new look, but even with the makeover, the new owners are sticking with the salon's colorful roots. In preparation for the kick-off party Friday, new owners Eva Jasperson and Tammi Fronek painted the walls of the Bolsa Chica Street shop Tiffany blue and added new pedicure chairs and a television. But they have strived to keep the homey spirit of the establishment, which is more than 30 years old. Jasperson's mother, Julie Snyder, was a stylist at the salon for more than 20 years and managed it for the past 13 years until her death in October at age 74. "I grew up in the industry," Jasperson said.

When it came to her sports team, Laura Elody was one of the guys. She bragged when the Raiders, Dodgers or Detroit Red Wings won, but she was lighthearted about it and would never put others' teams down, said her neighbor, Jason Pescevic. "She was just always smiling and a welcoming person," Pescevic said. Elody, 46, was shot to death while styling her mother's hair Oct. 12 at Salon Meritage in Seal Beach. Her mother, Harriet Stretz, 73, was also shot, but was recently released from the hospital.
