Veterans’ Day has passed for many people, but one company operating locally is keeping its observations going throughout the month. How? By offering free help for someone who served. Homewatch Caregivers, an in-home care company based out of Denver, is offering 20 hours worth of free in-home care and other services for a disabled U.S. military veteran who signs up. The Huntington Beach branch is actively reaching out to promote the program, through this week, which is Veterans Awareness Week, and beyond.

Jerry Person It is my sad duty to report the passing of longtime Huntington Beach resident and good friend George Arnold at the age 73. George passed peacefully away on Sunday, March 17 in a Palm Springs hospital. I will be writing a column about my friend George in the next few weeks as I collect material about his life. But this week we will be looking at a boxer, a Korean War veteran, a school teacher and a member of the clergy. On Oct. 19, 1917 Lowell Spangler was born to Harry and Edith Spangler in San Jose.

As a nation, we have expressed our gratitude to veterans each year since the first Armistice Day in remembrance of the end of World War I, in the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued a proclamation renaming the holiday and expanding it to include veterans of two intervening battles, World War II and the Korean War. ?Let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who fought so valiantly, on the seas, in the air, and on foreign shores, to preserve our heritage of freedom, and let us reconsecrate ourselves to the task of promoting an enduring peace so that their efforts shall not have been in vain,?

Offering breathtaking views of Catalina Island, Los Angeles Harbor and the Pacific Ocean, the Korean Bell of Friendship and Bell Pavilion sits high atop the San Pedro Peninsula. The bell and surrounding pavilion were given to the people of Los Angeles in 1976 by the people of the Republic of Korea as a celebration of the bicentennial of U.S. independence, a way to honor the veterans of the Korean War, as well as to symbolize friendship between Korea and the United States. Weighing 17 tons, the bell was originally cast in Korea using a variety of metals including copper, gold, lead and phosphorus (for tone purposes)

As we wake up this morning, on Veterans Day, our first thoughts should be obvious ones. American soldiers are fighting in the streets of a city far from their homes, in conditions and under stress the large majority of us will never know. They are fighting, in a profound sense, to ensure that we will never know such scenes. Our first thoughts and our deepest prayers should be with them and with their families. There are, of course, many who do know and who do understand what our soldiers are living through today.

With North and South Korea divided and turmoil brewing once again in the region, we are reminded of the war that led to the division of Korea. Sixty years ago, the United States sent its young but brave soldiers to fight for the freedom and democracy of the Korean people. Although many years have passed, U.S. soldiers have remained in the hearts and minds of the Korean people, who today are able to enjoy freedom of speech, religion and advancements of technology. On April 24, Sgt. Charles Brown was honored and thanked by his taekwondo community at Victory Martial Arts of Huntington Beach for his sacrifice and selfless service in the Korean War.

Andrew Edwards Some veterans wore old combat medals on their shirts. Almost all of them donned military-style caps lined with pins and patches. The assortment of emblems included Purple Hearts, patches showing which branch of the military someone served in and American Legion logos. But veterans and their families did not assemble to reminisce on their lives and tell old stories, they met to pay tribute to their comrades who did not make it home from distant battlefields as part of a Memorial Day celebration.

Michele Marr Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. -- The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans 13:1 If you love your freedom, clap your hands. Clap your hands and applaud a veteran, especially this Sunday, Nov. 11, Veterans Day. I came of age during the Vietnam War era. It was tough for me to accept the biblical and civil, idea that we, as citizens, are supposed to be subject to our governing authorities -- even when doing so means going to war -- regardless of what you think of the war. It was even tougher for me to grasp how God could appoint authorities like Hitler and Stalin, authorities that were much worse than our own. That is still tough for me to grasp.

The “golden age” of Hollywood produced many iconic actors, actresses, directors and producers. Many of these actors and filmmakers are still remembered today due to the many classic films made during this period between the late 1920s and the late 1950s. With the demise of the studio system and their star-making apparatuses, it is virtually impossible for a modern actor or filmmaker to achieve such status. Perhaps the lone Hollywood figure that can be reasonably considered to have scaled such heights is Clint Eastwood.

The pealing of the bell in the tower of the First Baptist Church sounded just a little sweeter as peace came and the memory of World War II receded. This week we'll continue our look back at the church at 401 6th St. With the war over, our boys in the service returned home as men to fill the pews and listen to the messages of its pastor, Rev. Luther A. Arthur. Life in our beach town was returning to normal, and the church would again be able to see its young and old together once again.
