An advocacy group and a union sued a Mission Viejo-based operator of California nursing homes this week, alleging that it has consistently understaffed many of its facilities to the detriment of patients. The action involves the largest number of nursing facilities ever included in such a lawsuit, the plaintiffs say.

When it came time for the Santa Susana Repertory Company to cast someone to play Scrooge in its 10th annual production of "A Christmas Carol," the company wanted a "name" actor. Notices were sent out, advising Hollywood talent agents. "Many times, agents submit their clients, appropriate or not," said the show's director, Allan Hunt, during a recent interview.

Re "Highflying Dispute: Ex-Military Officer Challenges Propriety of Hoisting Yacht Club Flag Above Nation's," Sept. 16. Apparently, disrespect is in the eye of the beholder. R.F. "Mike" WySocki's learned that nothing ever flies above the U.S. flag. The white church pennant always flies above the colors during services. Modern naval usage flies the ensign on the same mast and below the ship's commission pennant. A Time-Life book shows the schooner Dream, the first flagship of the Boston Boat Club, flying a pennant at the masthead and the national ensign from the gaff in 1834.

Newport-Mesa school officials are quickly learning how to avoid biting the hand that feeds them after a $1.1-million donation fell short of funding staff positions the district had counted on having. It's a problem every school district should have. For years now, a secret donor has given more than $1 million a year to the Newport-Mesa Unified School District for selected programs to enrich the educational experiences of the district's 20,000 students.

Hand over hand, William Warley hoists an American flag up a rooftop pole at the U.S. Capitol. It flaps in the breeze for a few seconds and then Warley runs it back down, folds it and boxes it. Hand over hand--up, then down. Fold. Box. Repeat. Since the program started in 1937, more than 2.4 million flags have been flown over the Capitol and then sold or given away as souvenirs.

An anonymous foundation has granted the fondest wish of Ensign Intermediate School educators: a $200,000 grant to bring technology into all classrooms. "If I sound calm and composed, it's a facade," Principal Scott Paulson said in making the announcement at Tuesday's board meeting of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. The school was chosen because of its grant proposal and its cultural tolerance program.

A yearbook picture of a beaming George Patrick Smith, voted "Best All Around" by Marina High School's class of 1987, brought back a flood of memories on Thursday for Smith's best friend, Todd Destatte. "Just look here," Destatte said, as he pointed to an opened page in the dusty yearbook. "He had the brightest future of anybody."

O'Connor's move from Los Angeles back to London was probably the best thing the Irish singer-songwriter could have done for her career in the United States, because pop audiences will now tend to encounter her through her music rather than her media outbursts. Her music carries the same passion and conviction of her public remarks, but the music is framed with such sureness of craft and depth of passion that it is hard not to be moved.

After 41 years as "Newport Beach's only home-based newspaper," the weekly Newport Ensign ceased publication Friday, several employees confirmed. No mention was made of the paper's closure in its Friday edition, an indication of the haste with which the periodical shut down. "That was our last issue," said one Ensign employee, who would not give her name. "But no one knew it was." Publisher Seth Baker did not return telephone calls, and co-editors Melinda Keller and Cheryl Stehling could not be reached for comment.

When ballots were issued for the Eclipse Awards, many conscientious voters agonized over the choice between Alysheba and Personal Ensign more than they did over the race between Bush and Dukakis. Some never could come to a satisfactory single pick for 1988's horse of the year, who will be named later this month. I haved spoken to two voters recently who said they solved their dilemma by casting half a vote for the colt, half a vote for the filly. This is nonsense.
