Barack Obama has risen from humble beginnings to the power of the presidency. But, every one of us has the presidential power to pardon a turkey on Thanksgiving. In fact, here are some reasons to skip the turkey this Thanksgiving: •?You are what you eat. Who wants to be a butterball? •?You won’t have to call Poultry Hotline to keep your family alive. •?You won’t sweat the environment and food resources devastation guilt trip. •?

Turkey, a curiously named poodle mix, arrived at the shelter earlier this month as a stray. Just about a year old, this bouncy boy sports a white and apricot coat that begs to be cuddled. He's very affectionate with people and also behaves in a friendly fashion with other dogs. Turkey is healthy, but still needs to be neutered, and is eager to play or go for walks. Because the poodle is a very intelligent breed, it should be relatively easy to channel the youthful exuberance of this young dog and produce an obedient canine citizen.

Mike Swanson Few kindergartners could resist ticklishly giggling Monday as a parent helper painted the bottoms of their feet brown for a Thanksgiving art project. Garrett Wolfe, 6, was the only student in Traci Jimenez' Hope View Elementary School class who remained relatively poker-faced through the painting process. After stepping their painted feet onto a sheet of paper, students' brown footprints would serve as turkey heads and bodies, surrounded by a collage of multi-colored tissue paper glued into feathered patterns of the students' choice.

Vic and I had T. rex for Thanksgiving dinner. Of course, it wasn?t actually a Tyrannosaurus rex . But our turkey was as big as a dinosaur, so we dubbed him Turkey rex. This magnificent beast came from Rainbow Ranch Farms. I had tried to order one of Xenia Stavrinides? delicious, naturally raised, heritage breed turkeys online in late October, but she was sold out. Fortunately, she had reserved a few for return customers who procrastinate. Even more fortunately, we were included in that special category.

At some point, B. Jill Carroll’s heart had grown hard. She can’t pin down a place or a moment, but she also abandoned what was most important to her. It’s a condition she associates with being American, with being an academic. A cynical American. A jaded academic. Suspicious. That is how she came to describe herself, though it took a journey to Turkey to make her see it. Carroll is a professor in religious studies at Rice University in Houston, and executive director of its Boniuk Center for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance.

As students in Marina High School's Endeavors program sat down to a turkey feast on Friday, they gave thanks for family, friends and a Thanksgiving meal that almost wasn't. The 22-pound turkey, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole steamed on the serving table ready to be eaten after a Grinch-like burglary about three weeks earlier had nearly robbed the students of their holiday celebration. Mike Rumford, a teacher in the special-education program, which is for students with autism, said his classroom and at least four other bungalows where the program is housed were broken into.

Frank Tahvildari's decision 18 years ago to serve a free holiday meal each Thanksgiving now means opening the doors to his Huntington Beach restaurant to about 600 people. "I got a place to live, and I got food to eat. Therefore it doesn't hurt me to give something back and see people walk out of here with a smile," he said. "They don't have their wallets with them. " Turkey, gravy, stuffing, vegetables and pumpkin bread will be served from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Tumbleweeds Bar and Grill at Beach Boulevard and Atlanta Avenue.

Erin Earl is throwing Turkey Bash 2013, a Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless of Huntington Beach, but she is aiming to provide more than just a meal. With the help of the owner of the Huntington Beach Bagelmania Coffeehouse, Earl hopes to create a sense of home and true holiday cheer to "give these people an experience that, if nothing else, makes them feel happy for a couple of hours. " "And you know when you feel better, when you feel happy for even a short time, it changes your outlook," she said.

There are very few authentic Turkish restaurants in South Orange County, so my dining partner and I were delighted to find Istanbul Grill, which has recently opened in a strip mall in Fountain Valley just off the 405 Freeway near Euclid. This bright, clean little spot has high ceilings and big windows that give it a pleasant feel. Black and white photos of Istanbul adorn the walls, and Turkish TV features a musical background to dining. It's a casual place, serving halal Turkish food.

While President Obama is pardoning two turkeys for Thanksgiving, every one of us has that same presidential power by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance that spares a turkey's life. And here are some good reasons: •You are what you eat. Who wants to be a "butterball"? •Your kids can tell their friends about their cool "Tofurky. " •You won't have to call the Meat and Poultry Hotline to keep your family alive. •Fruits and vegetables don't have to carry government warning labels.

A Huntington Beach elementary school is the new home of two turkeys that were groomed to get the coveted presidential pardon on Thanksgiving. Golden View Elementary School was the recipient Friday afternoon of turkeys that were fifth and sixth in line to be pardoned by President Obama. The turkeys will live on the school's 2.5 -acre farm with its ducks, chickens, geese, bunnies, goats and sheep to be visited and cared for by the students. The turkeys gathered a crowd of students who peered through the chain-link fence surrounding the farm to check out the school's newest additions on Friday.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Hope you’re in good health and all’s well with you. Maybe a surf in the morning could be fun, and some turkey with the family in the afternoon would be nice on this special occasion! Over in Hawaii, the surf finally picked up, 6 to 10-foot-plus for the Reef Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa. Hot 26-year-old local Joel Centeio pulled into a good-size barreling right and received a 9.33 score to take the win and the $20,000 first-place prize. Centeio also takes the lead in the Triple Crown of Surfing series’ overall points race, which some consider as good as a world title.
