It's more plausible, though, that the music stars have her work on a mantle. Gold, a Newport Beach resident who custom-designs dishes and accessories, handed out her products inside gift bags at this year's American Music Awards. She incorporated artists' lyrics, hobbies and even record labels into colorful, personalized designs.

Don't believe anyone who tells you that the 20% voter turnout for Tuesday's congressional election was not too bad, even if they cite that it was a special election in a race that almost inevitably will be won by the early Republican front-runner.

Of all the harrowing images of Hurricane Katrina, the ones that affected Will Laidlaw the most were the photographs of the houses demolished in the Deep South. "We knew a lot of homes got wrecked," said the 10-year-old Newport Elementary School student. "Almost every day, there'd be pictures in the newspaper." After the hurricane hit, Will and his family -- including his mother, Cheryl, and younger brother, Andrew -- held a family meeting in the kitchen to decide what to do to help Katrina victims.
