This week, though, we are going to look back at two members of the faculty of Orange Coast College who resided here in Huntington Beach. Patricia J. Moore believed the problems of family living have made home economics one of the most vital studies and, for most of her teaching career, would hold that to be true. Moore began early in her study of the home in her home state of Illinois.

In Matthew Harper's nearly three years on the Huntington Beach City Council, he has built a reputation as conservative, pro-business and unfraid to put in his 2 cents. He always comes to the meetings prepared, whether he intends to speak for or against an item. On occasion, he'll get into a little back-and-fourth with colleagues. "He'll irritate a lot of people, and being truthful isn't something that is easy to swallow," said his father, William Harper. "He tries to be tactful, but he's got his priorities set pretty firmly.

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty against Daniel Wozniak, the Costa Mesa man accused of killing and beheading his neighbor then killing a friend of the neighbor to cover up the first crime, Orange County Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas announced Thursday. The Wozniak case marks the first this year in which the county's top prosecutor and his team are seeking the death penalty. It is the second murder case in Costa Mesa in 2010. "Some murders are committed with such a depraved heart and in such a callous manner that the only punishment that fits the crime is the death penalty," Rackauckas said at a news conference in Santa Ana. On Thursday morning, Rackauckas and his office's Special Circumstances Committee decided that the details behind the slaying of Samuel Herr, 26, and Juri "Julie" Kibuishi, 23 — both Orange Coast College students — warranted death for their suspected killer.
