When typical Orange County residents are asked what they like the most about living in Orange County, I can almost guarantee you that the answer will be that it's because of the beautiful beaches, public parks, recreational opportunities, low crime rates, good schools and excellent job opportunities. When you roll all of that up into a package and put a name on it, there is nothing else to call it but "quality of life." We have to constantly work at preserving and protecting this quality of life that all of us hold so dear.

Everyone has a soft spot. For Newport Beach's Chris Massey, it's children. More than 3,000 children in Orange County are in the foster care and the juvenile court system on an average day, and a large percentage of them are in need of stable relationships and mentors. Social workers and judges manage multiple cases and rarely have time to focus on a single child. That's where the Court Appointed Special Advocates program (CASA) comes in. The juvenile court appoints volunteers to serve as advocates for children going through court proceedings.

Long before we ran out of energy in California, the housing crisis was prologue to today's headlines in Glendale. For 30 years, we in California have been shutting down production of housing on the one hand, while on the other, we wonder why we have no housing, exactly as we did for energy and a host of other public goods such as water and airports and roads. And nowhere is this contradiction better illustrated than in two California cities, one in Orange County, the other in Riverside.

GLENDALE — Police Chief Randy Adams is scheduled to go before the Orange County Board of Supervisors today for what should be an hourlong public interview in his bid to fill the position left vacant by former Sheriff Mike Corona, who resigned in January under the cloud of a federal corruption indictment. Glendale’s top cop for more than five years will join eight other candidates at the Hall of Administration in Santa Ana today for separate, televised interviews for the Orange County Sheriff position after the board of supervisors this month narrowed the field from nearly 50 applicants.
