I just finished reading a book "Through the Eyes of a Tiger, An Army Flight Surgeon's Vietnam Journal" written by Laguna Beach's own Jim Hall. Heck, I have never addressed Jim as Doctor.  The book is a captivating story of a brand new medical doctor sent to Vietnam for a year 1962-63. This is early in the US’s involvement in the Vietnam War, however, there is plenty of fighting and injuries to attend to. Captain Jay Hoyland (pen name for Laguna Beach's own Jim Hall) is not assigned to a hospital where he can confer and learn from other more experienced doctors, but he is assigned to a base being the only doctor south of Saigon in the Mekong Delta.

Alicia Robinson Aerospace and defense consultant Chuck DeVore is targeting the state Legislature as the best place to use his professional and military experience. DeVore is one of six Republican candidates vying for the 70th Assembly District seat in the March 2 primary. His parents are conservatives with a political enthusiasm that rubbed off on him, Devore said. After finishing college on an Army scholarship and taking a military intelligence officers' course, DeVore followed his interest in politics and landed a White House appointment as a congressional liaison for the Pentagon, traveling overseas and working with legislators on both ends of the political spectrum.

"It's not a crust; it's a canvas." In 1986, the day before the first Z Pizza was to open, the charming and very chatty Sid Fanaroff said that he and his then partner Suzie Megroz still hadn't figured out how to make dough in quantity. She had told him that she knew how to make pizza, but it was really pastry dough for a French onion tart -- which looks like a little pizza. When the giant dough mixer and oven were finally in place, Sid experimented with the recipe that came with the mixer.
