Parked, occupied vehicles containing one or more people are especially significant if observed at an unusual hour. They could be possible lookouts for a burglary in progress, even if the occupants appear to be lovers. Any vehicle moving slowly and without lights or following a course that appears aimless or repetitive is suspicious. Occupants may be casing for places to rob or burglarize. Apparent business transactions conducted from a vehicle, especially around schools or parks and if juveniles are involved, could mean possible drug sales.

Apparent business transactions conducted from a vehicle, especially around schools or parks and if juveniles are involved, could mean drug sales. Persons being forced into vehicles -- especially if they are juveniles or females -- may mean a possible kidnapping. Record the license plates and call police. An abandoned vehicle parked on your block may be stolen. Contact parking control with a license plate number. Place gravel outside windows where you're concerned about prowlers.

A stranger entering your neighbor's house when it is unoccupied may be a burglar. A scream heard anywhere may mean robbery or rape. Be observant and notify police. Anyone removing accessories, license plates or gasoline from a car should be reported. Anyone peering into parked cars may be looking for a car to steal or for valuables left in the car. Persons entering or leaving a business place after hours could be burglars. Safely try to note any vehicles involved and call police.

He'd rather be playing senior softball. But at 75, Dave Sullivan says he instead wants to help Huntington Beach thrive, and it's why he's running for City Council for the fourth time. The more-than-four-decade resident is worried about the city's fiscal state and says his most important mission, should he be elected, is to help fix pensions. Though he spent 12 years on the council - from 1992 to 2000 and from 2002 to 2006 - Sullivan said he was always on the losing end when it came to pension spending.

H ow about a high-end restaurant where you can have a moderately priced meal? Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale's is certainly an elegantly appointed space with superior service, urbane touches like amuses bouches, mignardises and even a pretty little package of cookies to take home; but if you bring your own wine (because there is no corkage fee) and if you limit your ordering to the extensive small-plate and first-course menus, you can have a very nice dinner indeed for a very decent price.

Built by the wife of a Scottish nobleman in 1936, Five Crowns was modeled after a 12th-century English country house. Originally called the Hurley Bell, it was run as a bed-and-breakfast and catered to the Hollywood elite. Couples like Rita Hayworth and Howard Hughes, and Bogie and Bacall used it as a hideaway. In 1965, it was taken over by the founders of Lawry’s The Prime Rib, who maintained its country charm and opened a formal restaurant specializing in prime rib, served dramatically from a cart.

Tumbleweeds Bar and Grill, 21094 Beach Blvd., is known most nights of the year as a neighborhood hangout low on pretension but high on friendliness. But every Thanksgiving, it’s known as a haven for the needy. For a decade, owner Frank Tahvildari has opened his restaurant’s doors for a free Thanksgiving meal, giving anyone who shows up turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, vegetables, pumpkin muffins and more. Though last year 700 people showed up, he and volunteers are making enough food for 2,000 so no one will be turned away, he said.
