Lester Elmore, a Balboa Island resident and automotive entrepreneur who opened an Orange County Toyota dealership in 1966, died Thursday. He was 79. "He wasn't afraid of a lot. He was self-made," Lester Elmore's daughter Judy Elmore said. Lester Elmore died of natural causes, and he recently had a stroke, his daughter said. His family is planning a private memorial service. Born in Chico, Lester Elmore served in the Merchant Marine in the Pacific theater during World War II and moved to Monrovia when the war ended.

Omigosh -- owners of mega-dollar boats just learned that sea lions bark. Gadzooks -- let's get out the militia and shoot those inconsiderate beasts -- the sea lions, that is. That certainly would be a start in taking care of the "noise" problem for everyone around the bay. We just finished reading the article about barking sea lions.

AT ISSUE: Barking sea lions in the harbor are keeping some residents up at night, and the marine mammals have even been blamed for sinking a boat. Who's invading whose space? After reading the article "Wearing out welcome" in Friday's Daily Pilot, I have the following comments: So what if the sea lions who make Newport Harbor their home are barking? That's what sea lions do. We are extremely fortunate to be living in such a beautiful place, surrounded by the harbor, the ocean and waterways, where protected mammals and other aquatic life can flourish in a marine environment.

Cindy Trane Christeson "I am wishing for you this day a happy Christmas. I would send you those gifts which are beyond price, outlast time and bridge all space. I wish you all laughter and pure joy, a merry heart and a clear conscience, and love which thinks no evil, is not easily provoked and seeks not its own; the fragrance of flowers, the sweet associations of holly and mistletoe and fir, the memory of deep woods, of peaceful hills and of the mantling snow, which guards the sleep of all God's creatures.

In a business in which image is critical, will young surfers and skateboarders care that Costa Mesa clothing makers Volcom Inc. have gone corporate? Probably not, said Paul Burnett, president of Surfside Sports, a Balboa Island retailer. "The average guy on the street, that's not his thing," Burnett said Tuesday. On Monday, Volcom announced earnings figures for the second quarter of 2005, the first time it has released quarterly numbers since becoming a public company.
