The grill was hot and the sodas were plenty. What looked like a scene from a beachside barbecue was actually a blood drive -- lifeguard style. Newport Beach Lifeguards sponsored a blood drive Friday, drawing in residents and tourists who donated 45-minutes of their time to give blood, some of which may go to the New Orleans area to help Hurricane Katrina survivors. The blood drive, held at the lifeguard headquarters at the base of the Newport Pier, lasted hours.

GLENDALE ? More than half the Daily High School students who were eligible donated blood Wednesday during a Red Cross collection at the school. More than 100 students and some employees from the neighboring Glendale Unified School District administration building gave blood at the event, sponsored by the Associated Student Body. "We did it last year and it was so well received the students asked to do it again this year," said Principal Sherry Stockhamer. The Daily students hosted one blood drive in February but decided to do another before Memorial Day, when Southern California hospitals usually need an infusion of new blood, said Red Cross spokeswoman Geri Hernandez.

This is beginning to sound a bit like a broken record, I realize, but today's paper marks yet another round of changes. In concert with the changes with the Life & Leisure section, the addition of Marquee, we've decided to make a few design changes. We've changed the look and feel of the skybox (the text above our front-page logo), making it easier to read. We've changed the headline font, giving news stories a traditional serif font, while more feature-type stories receive a san-serif treatment.

Surrounded by friends and family, little Merceda Hedge celebrated her first birthday Wednesday with three cakes and lots of cupcakes. It was a typical birthday party with hats, candles and balloons save one variant — a blood drive going on in the next room. The drive was sponsored by the MOMS Club of the Foothills, based in La Crescenta, in honor of Merceda’s mom, Leslie. It was just a little more than a year ago that Leslie Hedge was diagnosed with hairy cell leukemia, a rare cancer of the blood in which bone marrow makes too many B-cells, a type of white blood cell that fights infection.
