Jengyee Liang has never been at a loss for landing a prime position when it comes to work ? paid or otherwise ? so she's decided to share with other young jobseekers what she's learned. Upon graduating from UC Berkeley last May, Liang, a Huntington Beach resident, decided to write a book on job hunting and how students can make the most of their professional experiences. Liang, aged 23, penned the book, "Hello Real World! A Student's Approach to Great Internships, Co-ops and Entry-Level Positions," based on her internship experiences at four Fortune 100 companies.

Huntington Beach resident and small business owner Dan Kalmick has formally announced his intention to run for the Democratic nomination in the 46th district, arguing that his views on the Iraq war, the environment, and civil liberties will make him the natural choice for his party’s nomination. Kalmick, 25, would be the youngest representative in Congress should he win the general election. Despite his age and generally progressive political leanings, Kalmick said he has a fighting chance in a political climate that he views as increasingly suspicious of Republicans and driven by young, independent voters.

Andrew Edwards The 1,108 members of Golden West College's graduating class each have different stories to tell. None entered the school by the same route, and each one has a different hope for the future. But on Friday, the class of 2004 came together wearing green, gold and white gowns as their families watched them graduate. Some of the graduates went to Golden West right after high school, as the first step toward a university diploma. For others, taking classes was part of a plan to move forward with a career, or came after a long absence from the classroom.

The city's new volunteer service for seniors who need assistance running errands is still looking for more helping hands. Since it began in January, the program has seen demand double, and the 15 volunteers serving the elderly are not enough. The program is looking for more people willing to escort seniors on Thursday and Friday shifts. Volunteers must go through fingerprinting, a background check, and training. The next training class begins Sept. 26 at Rodgers Senior Center.

The University of California and California State University systems are a source of pride for Californians. They are the best public higher education systems in the world and, even with recent tuition hikes, remain one of the best education bargains nationwide. Recently, however, the UC, which receives annual multibillion-dollar investments from California taxpayers, has begun to forget its primary mission, which is to educate California students. Since 2009, the number of incoming UC freshmen who are out-of-state or international has nearly doubled.

Mike Sciacca This summer has been anything but a break from studying for Richard Schwartz who came home to Huntington Beach a month ago, on summer break from classes at UC Berkeley. The former Edison High quarterback, the Sunset League's Offensive Back of the Year in 2001, created his own classroom by bringing home Berkeley tapes and playbooks and soaking up, absorbing -- you name it, every aspect of the Golden Bears offense, as though he was learning a second language.

Tony Gonzalez’s left foot is talking to him. It’s been talking to him for the past three years or so, and lately, it’s been saying, “Ouch. My bones aren’t as strong as they used to be. When are you going to let up?” The days of letting up are quickly approaching. The All-Pro tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs and Huntington Beach’s hometown hero is playing his 11th season in the NFL this year, and he knows he’s getting old, at least in football years.
