After a 12-year romance Shelley and Laura Petrie, an openly gay couple, officially married on Friday, August 22 at the Santa Ana Courthouse and chose the Sawdust Art Festival to celebrate this romantic occasion. Following the courthouse ceremony the newly weds came directly to the summer festival to enjoy “Aloha Friday” on the Sawdust grounds, and they were among the first 500 guests, receiving floral aloha leis before picking up a “bride and bride” Polymer clay art piece from Patti’s People, which symbolized their special day.

They were to follow the same route that Richard Henry Dana took from Boston to California in the early 1830s on the tall ship Pilgrim. The sailors in this case were fifth-graders at Top of the World Elementary School working on a three-week course in which they studied Dana's travels to learn about science, math, history, social studies and language.

Suzie Harrison Tying the knot has an unexpected meaning for Rosie Haynes' Top of the World Elementary School fifth-grade class. Instead of having anything to do with marriage, it's a skill the students are learning as they study writer and explorer Richard Henry Dana. "Students get to relive and experience the harsh life of what it was like to be a sailor aboard [Dana's ship] the Pilgrim," Haynes said. "In preparation for the overnight [stay on the replica ship]

"Honor to a Spaniard ... is as real a thing as water, wine or olive oil." — Ernest Hemingway "Yeah, make that a double, Nick... with two olives and a twist." — Anonymous From the desert to the sea, the olive tree has become an icon of Southern California. And rightfully so. The beauty of its gnarled trunks and willow-like foliage has been appreciated for centuries.

I hit the wall Tuesday, hard, after being on watch Monday morning from 6 a.m. to noon and again from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. I awoke feeling groggy, tired and grumpy. The fast-paced drizzle, gray and cold skies didn't help matters much. It only feeds into this feeling of isolation. The bad weather has returned. If our sailboat were a pinball machine, we would have been on full tilt days ago. Right now, as I write, we are stuck on the port side (left) doing just more than 6 knots in 30 plus knots winds.
