It was something Butterfly Park had not seen in years - butterflies. Parts of the 7-acre city-owned land, formerly known as Gibbs Park, served as an overwinter resting shelter for butterflies that were flying south to warmer temperatures. But after years of neglect, the park began to break down and butterflies stopped coming. That's when the park received a new nickname from the residents - Scary Park. Dead trees, homeless people and 3-foot-tall grass were all that was left of the insect rest stop, according to Park Restoration Coordinator Leslie Gilson.

It was a small gathering on a quiet day in one of Orange County's quieter cities, but the group surrounding the stage looked like a who's-who of the area's right-wingers. Costa Mesa Mayor Allan Mansoor recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Assemblyman Van Tran and local Republican Party Chairman Scott Baugh took turns at the microphone.

O ne person will go home this weekend with $1,000 after the 18th annual Duck-A-Thon. One very lucky, random person. The charity event, which raises funds for AltaMed's Huntington Beach Community Clinic, takes the form of a race, as thousands of rubber ducks are dropped off the Huntington Beach Pier. The first duck to make it back to shore nets $1,000 for the person who bought it, and the next 59 garner a prize of some kind. But there is no handicapping the Duck-A-Thon, event coordinator Carol Speaker said.

I love living in a city where pelicans get so much press. This paper did a wonderful job last week covering some recent news (“A long-awaited flight,” Feb. 18), and I had just been to the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center the week before that after learning about the dozens of sick birds. Perhaps it’s because I’m partial to pelicans, but still, any opportunity to watch the volunteers at the center work their magic is always a rewarding experience. The morning I went to hang around and observe, there were but three people there, yet they seemed to be doing the work of at least twice as many, methodically weighing, treating, feeding and tending to literally dozens of brown pelicans in their Pacific Coast Highway facility.
