Army paratrooper Austin Honrath isn't afraid of jumping out of airplanes in Iraq, but getting him to pose for a photo while he is home on a 30-day convalescent leave is a bit of a challenge. Honrath, a former Newport Beach lifeguard, is a "little bit shy," so when an entourage of more than 50 of his friends and family members came to the airport to greet him as he returned home last month after being injured in a suicide car bombing, he was quite taken aback. "It was amazing to see there are that many people who are supportive of what I do," the 22-year-old Huntington Beach resident said.

Huntington Beach has entered a three-year agreement to share police helicopter services with Newport Beach, continuing a recent county trend of cities partnering with neighbors to cut costs. The Huntington Beach City Council on Monday voted for the agreement following the dissolution of the AirBorne Law Enforcement (ABLE), a joint partnership between Costa Mesa and Newport. At $700 an hour, the agreement is expected to generate $2.1 million for Huntington. More sharing is expected, as Huntington officials are discussing the possibility of sharing other services with Newport and Costa Mesa, and fire services with Fountain Valley, said Huntington City Manager Fred Wilson.

If Edward Van Ornum's father were given an option between attending a party or cutting off his hand, he'd probably ask, "Which hand?" Growing up, Van Ornum, of Newport Beach, found that he similarly had little social life. He'd go to school, followed by work and then return home. The pattern would be repeated the next day. Deciding he didn't want to become a hermit, he picked up dance. In the more than three decades since, he's mastered the waltz, foxtrot, cha cha, samba and hustle, and eventually became a teacher, at studios in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.

Many issues face us in coastal Orange County. Our sales and income taxes are the highest in the nation, and they must be lowered. We must protect Proposition 13 from those who would reduce its taxpayer safeguards. Crime is going up because of the misguided prisoner release program called "realignment. " Our schools are failing to provide a high quality education for our students. My opponents in the race to represent the region in the Assembly, however, want to talk about fire rings.
