National Children’s Awareness Month recently ended as September turned into fall. It looks like we have names for each month; causes, tributes, movements, cultural changes. Sometimes the months have multiple names and the message gets lost in the clutter.

To the point, National Child Awareness is important. American children, arguably some of the luckiest alive on the planet, aren’t as lucky as we’d like to think. The statistics are alarming. Child poverty is at record levels, as is hunger, homelessness and, most seriously, child abuse.

In Orange County, the Children’s Festival, founded twenty years ago by Sandy Segerstrom Daniels, once again focused on the ever-present and expanding arenas of children’s needs here and now, in this one backyard. The Costa Mesa-based organization finds its mission by bringing together many local non-profit organizations dedicated to child protection for a series of month-long events and fundraisers, the benefits of which are shared and divided among the participants.

The launch event in September drew 300 community and nonprofit business leaders under the roof of Ancillary Studios, now in the former Sears Auto Center in South Coast Plaza.

At the event, the crowd was surrounded by fanciful “automotive decor” in homage to the building’s ancient function. A $ 10million Koenigsegg was wrapped in art created by avant-garde artist Jacques Jean.

Honors awarded included the Founder’s Award to Kimberly pancake, president and CEO of Orange County Children’s Hospital. The FRED Award (For Really Extraordinary Doers) was presented to Sebastien perez, a 12-year-old boy born with osteogenesis imperfecta, also known as brittle bone disease. Sebastian has dedicated his life to helping other children.

“There are so many amazing charities, individuals and businesses on the front line trying to meet every need and remove every barrier for our children,” said Segerstrom Daniels.

Child abuse in its most serious form has taken center stage at Vanguard University’s Waugh Student Center, presented by the Global Center for Women and Justice (GCWJ) headed by its director. Dr Sandra Morgan. Guest speaker and special guest Nicole Suydam, President and CEO of Goodwill Orange County, was on hand for the cause.

The eighth annual “Priceless” luncheon, named in honor of protecting the world’s invaluable children, raised an impressive $ 200,000 for various services including legal, civic and educational programs aimed at promoting end to child trafficking.

“GCWJ Director Dr Sandra Morgan presented an impact report highlighting the centre’s diligent work during the COVID-19 pandemic and its continued commitment to end human trafficking. The GCWJ also launched an initiative focused on the prevention of human trafficking and the care of survivors which was inspired by Dr Morgan’s service on the presidential-appointed Federal Public-Private Partnership Advisory Council, ”offered Kristin scheitauer, publicist for the event.

“The Global Center for Women and Justice has fought for 18 years for the dignity, justice and freedom of those who are exploited,” Morgan said. “Human exploitation and trafficking is happening everywhere, even here in Orange County. “

The “Priceless” event was co-chaired by Fernanda brady and Alissa sagud. Awards were presented to defenders and survivors, including Shyima Room and Nicole strattman. The professors and assistant coaches of the Orangewood Foundation and Vanguard were also recognized. Ruthi Hanchett, with a Vanguard student Alexandra Niebaum.

Americans were moved to tears by the tragic events of the last days of the US engagement in Afghanistan which claimed the lives of 13 US servicemen at Kabul airport during the evacuation. In Newport Beach, citizens Nick nagel, Emily ziebell and Anna ziebell were motivated to organize a “Paddle for Patriots” fundraising ceremony to benefit the families of lost military personnel.

At noon on September 11, 35 local citizens organized by Nagel and the Ziebells launched paddleboards and kayaks donated by the Balboa Bay Club, Newport Aquatic Center and Newport Board Club. Paddlers included Tom casey, put on and Leigh bassler, Matt claybough, Excited and Ellen phelan, among others, entering Newport Bay off the docks of the Balboa Bay Club and traveling west, ending at Billy’s at the Beach restaurant on the bay off the Coast Highway. Then the entourage returned to the Balboa Bay Club.

Nagel, a first lieutenant in the United States Army, paid a moving tribute to the 13 people lost at Kabul airport as well as to the victims of September 11 on the occasion of his 20th anniversary.

In a final optimistic post on the first Saturday in October, the Daily Pilot sends big hugs to the resident of Huntington Beach Dottie lewis, which celebrated its 100th anniversary on September 25. Born in Peoria, Illinois, Dottie came to California in 1942 during the difficult years of World War II. She married Glen Lewis and they shared a 64-year marriage.

In 1973, the Lewis family moved to Balboa Island and Dottie went to work at the opening of Beach Time Realty in 1977; Has been operating his well-known business for 30 years, retiring in 2016 at the age of 95. On her 100th birthday Dottie was surrounded by her two children and their spouses, three grandchildren and their spouses, six great-grandchildren, her sister and extended family and friends.

This is called a life well lived.

I like to start my articles at random with interesting facts about the topic I’m writing about. The last time I gave you some unique facts about the bamboo plant, for this article the top is seafood.

The things you can find on the Internet are remarkable! Did you know…

  • Halibut and tuna are the safest fish to eat in terms of bacteria.
  • Eating 100 grams of sardines will give you more protein than eating a steak of the same weight.
  • Shark fin soup is a delicacy in China, its price can range from $ 100 to $ 200.
  • Before cooking a fish, you can tell if the fish is fresh and ready to eat by placing it in a pot of water. If the fish stays afloat, it means that it has been caught recently and is fresh to eat.
  • Of the 5 billion pounds of shrimp produced in a year, one billion is consumed by Americans.
  • 95% of crayfish in the United States are caught in Louisiana.

Pointe Agréable Plage ?! Here are America’s 50 best beach towns

Each beach town has its own set of pros and cons, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best place to live. For the knowledge, Stacker consulted WalletHub data, published on June 17, 2020, which compares American seaside towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The towns had a population of 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read it full methodology here. From these rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will not be surprised to learn that many of the cities featured here are in one of these two states.

Read on to see if your favorite beach town has made the cut.

Huge fireworks will light up the sky over the Kent coast this evening.

The colorful show will close the Herne Bay Festival at 9 p.m., as revelers along the waterfront will enjoy a host of live music throughout the day and into the evening.

Event bosses say the entertainment will include sets by the bands Abba Chique, Marilyn Sky, The Konks, The Native Oysters Band, and Gentlemen of Few, with a few food stalls scattered around the Tower Square. clock.

The festival finale will precede the return of the Kent Tribute Festival tomorrow – as organizer Gerald McCarthy says he’s gearing up for his biggest crowds of all time.

“We expect to receive around 1,500 people – normally we would have around 1,000,” he said.

“We get an increase in numbers around the festival date, which was fueled by the fact that the kids can come. It’s a family event.

“This year’s line-up will be our strongest so far.

“We try to mix and match so there will be something for everyone.”

The event, which will take place at the Strode Park Foundation in Herne, will feature artists performing the classics of David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Queen and Oasis.

It will also be equipped with a large screen, offering, according to Mr. McCarthy, to the public “a beautiful sight on everything”.

The organizer believes the popularity of its event – as well as its Titanic exhibit at King’s Hall – shows an appetite among people to move after the lockdown is eased.

“They are in desperate need of release,” he added.

“We also went out during the Herne Bay Festival, and the Pier and King’s Hall were both busy.

“I think it’s the rebound effect to be pretty small over the past 18 months.

“It’s a relief to be able to put this on. I know a lot of the organizers made the decision very early this year to cancel the events with the roadmap announcement in February.

“It pays dividends for those who took the plunge and expected things to go smoothly. It was a courageous decision to make this decision in uncertain times.”

The sidewalk plazas around Town Hall got a colorful – albeit temporary – new look on Saturday as artists of all ages created mini-masterpieces at the Onset Chalk-Full-O-Fun Fest .

SpongeBob SquarePants, his friends, and his neighborhood were by far the most popular topic – perhaps because the day was so sunny and hot.

The arrival of the ice cream truck in the early afternoon was announced by singer Kim Trusty, who provided a sweet soundtrack for the day.

“It’s so nice to play outside and feel safe,” Trusty said. She added that she loved watching people of all ages create art.

Treats were available from food trucks, and a number of artists and artisans showed off their wares.

Usually held at the Onset Bandshell, the festival had to be moved as this venue is about to be under construction. Fortunately, said organizer Milly Burrows, city hall has provided plenty of parking and toilet access.

“It’s going well,” Burrows said. “People are here to have fun.

Artist participation was lower than in previous years, Burrows said, likely due to the pandemic, the new location, the impending storm and the limited time to promote the event.

“We had an amazing group of volunteers who were able to prepare for this in a relatively short period of time,” said Burrows.

Rin Rezendes, a Lakeville illustrator and 2020 Old Colony graduate, was the festival’s featured artist. Rezendes has been to several past festivals and won a few, and said it was especially nice to get paid to create a work at the event.

Her design, created during the day with the help of her boyfriend, Matt Braga, depicted a gender nonconforming person with a vivid braid and a classic witch hat.

Rezendes said that although he initially considered drawing a number of small characters in the cute Chibi style (popular in Japan), he instead decided to make a larger piece more representative of his art style.
The character was the one he had dreamed of for some time, he said.

Rezendes illustrated a book, “Beyond Us”, written by Old Colony Superintendent Aaron Polansky, in 2019.

Rezendes said his advice to young artists is to “go for it”.

“Just explore,” he said. “It’s really important to experiment with the things you like.”

Cailin Tessier was the big winner of the festival. Amanda Sellars and Jackson Gillman received honorable mentions.

It’s been about a year and a half since attending a beer festival and I miss the experience of exploring new flavors and the sense of camaraderie they bring. Fortunately, the Arapahoe Basin ski area Brewery Festival returns to the Continental Divide this weekend.

Traditionally a spring skiing event, the festival started 20 years ago and is one of the most popular in the ski area. Although later in the year than normal, people can still have fun from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 31. Tickets cost $ 35 and include a souvenir tasting cup and unlimited payouts.

The event also features fresh burgers and kids in addition to live music from Hobo Village. The 6th Alley Bar and Grill is also open if you want to fill up in the morning. Enjoy a breakfast burrito or stuffed French toast at brunch before sipping a beer at the festival.



The festival isn’t the only thing happening that day either. You can watch the athletes in the Reverse Enduro MTB Race climb 1,500 vertical feet for 3 miles, then descend from the comfort of the base zone. Do you feel active? Then, explore the Aerial Adventure Park, take a scenic ride, or hike to admire the magnificent views of the East Wall.

“If you want, you can spend the whole day here,” A-Basin spokeswoman Katherine Fuller said. “We actually have a lot more to do this year than we’ve ever had. This is the first year of operation seven days a week in summer.



While the beer menu is subject to change, here’s what breweries are currently planning to pay.

Outer Range Brewing Co.

Frisco’s Outer Range Brewing Co. offers two different beers to suit different tastes. One is High Peak, a 5.2% ABV Pilsner for easy drinking, while the other is 7.2% ABV dry double-hopped Steezy India pale ale.

Angry James Brewing Co.

Angry James Brewing Co. of Silverthorne opts for a similar combination. Participants can start with Jake’s Pils, a traditional 4.8% German Pilsner that’s crisp and clean. Sampling is complemented by the West Coast style 7% tricentric IPA brewed with Centennial, Cascade and Citra hops.

The Baker’s Brewery

The Bakers’ Brewery offers four different beers – most of the festival breweries. People can expect to find classics like Malty, 4.7% Barking Dog Brown, and 6.9% Elated IPA that straddles the old and new school. Then there’s the Party Pils which has been washed for two months to balance the flavors at 5.2%, and the wild and new Tropical Dance Tripel. The 7.5% beer combines dry double-hop New England-style IPAs that have fruity Zamba hop flavors with the light, dry finish of a Belgian triple.

Steep Brewing & Coffee Co.

Summit County’s newest brewery has two of its latest offerings. The 5.3% Coconut Coffee Porter was made with 30 pounds of coconut and the roaster’s homemade cold brew. Hop lovers should take note to taste the Hopocalypse Now Double IPA. It was created with four different hops, 10 different hop additions and achieved 7.4% ABV.

Pug Ryan Brewery

You’ll find more malt under the tent at Pug Ryan’s Brewery. He will pour his traditional blond Helles bock and Mexican amber blond beer Cerveza Rubia. Beers are respectively 6.9% and 5.2% ABV.

HighSide Brewing

Frisco’s HighSide Brewing will use Pilsner Pro-Czech Ya Neck which balances the sweetness of malt and the bitterness of 4.6% ABV hops. In addition, it will also have the Trip Leader, a 6.9% IPA that has aromas of pine, grapefruit and hints of tropical fruits.

New Belgium Brewing Co. and Denver Beer Co.

Local breweries will not be the only ones present on Saturday. New Belgium Brewing Co. of Fort Collins will bring its Dominga, a 6% sour mimosa beer, as well as the Mountain Time lager at 4.4%. Meanwhile, Denver Beer Co. will feature 6.5% Juicy Freak IPA and 4.8% Tangy Princess Yum Yum Raspberry Kolsch.
