Searching for sweets near the beach? Lollishop will take care of your candy fix. Owner Kim Keirstead grew up in Newport Beach and just opened the fantastic candy store across from City Hall in Newport Beach. But her mission is more than supplying lollipops, novelty candies and holiday-themed sweets to customers. She hopes to inspire other merchants to open in this area. "I have lived in Newport Beach my entire life, and I have very fond memories of riding my bike to this area and spending hours looking through all of the cute and interesting shops," Keirstead said.

Could Orange County become any sweeter? We just celebrated the new 'lette Macarons at Fashion Island, a place for authentic French macarons. We can order French pastries at Pandor Artisan Boulangerie that taste as delicious as ones in Paris. And now we have Sweet and Saucy Shop, a celeb favorite dessert spot that just opened at Crystal Cove Shopping Center in Newport Coast. Co-owner and pastry chef Melody Brandon, a graduate from Le Cordon Bleu, opened her first Sweet and Saucy three years ago in Long Beach with her mother, Eileen Francabandera.

Mary Furr Cozy and adventurous are words that come to mind when you eat at Soya, a name that means "sweet evening" in Japanese. It's a storefront location on the northwest corner of Springdale Street and Edinger Avenue -- between a 99 cent store and Springdale Village gift shop. "It's my secret place," says one diner as he is greeted by friendly hellos from Linda Kyung and co-owner husband chef Denny who is chopping and slicing at the nine-stool sushi bar tucked in a back corner of the restaurant.

Chongo Chongo is a male neutered Skye terrier mix. He is black with a little white on his face and he has wiry hair. Chongo is about 2 1/2 years old. He is a breed of dog that is very bonded and faithful to his owner. He can be wary of strangers and does not get along with other dogs. He makes an extremely good watchdog, despite his size. He would be best in an all-adult home. Chongo loves to play ball and is a good dog on the leash. He sheds very little and does not bark very much.

ROSA Rosa is a 6-year-old chow-shepherd mix. She has the beautiful red color of a Chow but the short hair of the Shepherd, so she has the best of both. Rosa was an owner release because her family did not have any time for her. She was a very lonely dog, and they felt that someone else would give her a better home. Rosa is so funny -- you would not even believe how she acts. She is extremely playful, she knows all the basic commands, and is just a wonderful girl.

Shamrock Shamrock, about 2 1/2 years old, is a sweet Chihuahua mix. He loves to sit on your lap, cuddle and go for a walk. He is friendly with other dogs and is living with the cats in the cat room at the shelter. Shamrock weighs about 4 pounds, so he needs to be in a home that is gentle to such a little dog. He can be visited at the Orange County Humane Society, 21632 Newland St.. For more information, call (714) 536-8480 or visit www.ochumanesociety.com . We are greatly in need of bedding for animals.

Good Chinese food is hard to find, not only in Huntington Beach, but all of Orange County. Maybe Ruby Palace has driven most of the other Chinese restaurants out of town. It is entirely possible, considering their food is the best I have had in the county. Only restaurants in the three major Chinatowns — New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco — are better. Ruby Palace has been owned by the same family for 27 years. The Hsu brothers, Domingo and Jeff, took over for their father and have continued the traditions he started.

Paul Babcock considers himself lazy. That might explain why the Long Beach resident still isn't proficient in playing the dulcimer, despite being introduced to the instrument nearly six years ago. Drawn to its gentle sounds, his wife, Teresa, purchased a fretted dulcimer and enrolled in classes. Paul is, by all definitions, a supportive husband who applauds at local performances and also accompanies her to Western Carolina University's Mountain Dulcimer Week. The novice player simply doesn't practice.

One of the coldest cases on record has been solved. Call it "justice served, a la cart. " Back in May, I wrote about Mike Guidicianne, the 34-year-old Boston transplant/entrepreneur who owns and operates Orange County Slush here in Huntington Beach. Remember? Blue Vanilla, Watermelon, Lemon, Orange County Cream - delicious Italian ices that are now available at Albertsons and used to be available at his pushcart, which he brought to various events around Huntington Beach so that people could sample his ices.

Surely you've seen those blond kids riding them down along the strand in Huntington. Kind of like a surfboard, but not a surfboard. Kind of like a skateboard, but not a skateboard. Maybe "skurfboard" would have been appropriate, but not as far as Pete Hamborg was concerned. This oversized skateboard in the shape of a surfboard was as much about family as anything, so the appropriate name was easy. Hamboard. Hamboards are all about the Hamborgs and Huntington. Skateboarding has been around awhile, but the Hamboard takes street surfing to a new level.

Kneeling at a small U-shaped table, Christopher de Lis was silent as he clutched an orange Sharpie and carefully wrote "thank you" on the front of a blank card. Students around him were chatting and working on various projects, but his concentration stayed on the card. The 10-year-old repeated the words over and over, first in red and then in green Sharpie before filling the card with exclamation points and a smiling stick figure on the bottom. His mother showed up to take him home from YMCA at John R. Peterson Elementary School, but he stayed a little longer to finish his card for troops serving in Afghanistan over the holidays.

Neapolitan ice cream, chocolate syrup, nuts, whipped cream, marshmallows and cherries are all necessary for an ice cream sundae, but at Circle View Elementary School the ingredients weren't for eating. Sitting in a small blow-up pool in a yellow plastic poncho, blue shower cap and matching goggles and snorkel, Principal Kathleen Jaquin stood still as students drizzled, sprinkled and plopped the ingredients all over her. Students had a chance to turn their principal into a human sundae as a reward for the top fundraising students in each grade.

April Ross didn't want to leave the winner's podium. The Newport Harbor High grad and Costa Mesa resident wished to relish the moment, her moment, the one that finally belonged to her and teammate Jennifer Kessy. "I'm tearing up," she told a crowd of about 3,000 at center court Sunday, site of the Assn. Volleyball Professionals Nivea Tour Huntington Beach Open, presented by Bud Light Lime. "I don't want to get down. I don't want the moment to end." What Ross and Kessy — another Orange County product from San Clemente — did end Sunday was futility in the Southland.

Vic and I just returned from a three-day weekend in Yuma, Arizona and Brawley, California. In case that sounds like an odd vacation, I should point out that it was not a holiday for us. Vic was working, leading his natural history class for senior citizens on a field trip. I tagged along to provide comic relief. This outing was mainly a birding trip, but we learned about other things as well. At Yuma, we visited Imperial Dam, where water from the Colorado River is diverted into California’s All-American Canal and Arizona’s Gila Gravity Main Canal.
