Organizers of a high-profile annual free clinic in Los Angeles that attracts thousands of uninsured and underinsured patients have hoped that improvements in the nation's healthcare system would greatly reduce demand for their services. The massive Care Harbor event returns to town this week, amid the rollout of new and shifting insurance options for millions of Californians under the Obama administration's overhaul of the healthcare system. Once again, thousands showed up Monday at the Sports Arena to secure appointments for everything from mammograms to teeth cleaning - but with new expectations for the future.

Fish began dying en masse in the waters around Honolulu after hundreds of thousands of gallons of molasses spilled into Honolulu Harbor early this week, and there's nothing officials can do to clean it up. Thousands of fish have died from the sugary sludge. Crabs lay dead along the harbor bottom while more fish floated listlessly, some seeming to gasp above the surface of the water contaminated by the syrupy sweetener. The spill is one of the worst man-made disasters to hit Hawaii in recent memory, officials said, not least because no one has quite seen anything like it. "There's nothing you can do to clean up molasses," said Jeff Hull, a spokesman for Matson Inc., the company responsible for the leak.

At 216 feet from stem to stern, the Invictus is a colossus of a yacht, complete with a gym, a theater and a dining room table that comfortably seats 20. And when billionaire developer Rick Caruso's mega-boat pulls in and out of Newport Harbor in the coming weeks, it will dwarf the cabin cruisers and sailboats that typically bob on the waters here. Even the long-running Balboa Island Ferry will be a speck in comparison. But the pending arrival of the Invictus and a second yacht, the 130-foot Marama, is also testing the patience of some Newport residents who say the massive vessels - even as temporary visitors - will be a nuisance and possibly lead to other large-boat owners making Newport Harbor a port of call.

A pair of mega-yachts, including billionaire developer Rick Caruso's new 216-foot vessel, will glide into Newport Harbor next month, and not everyone is thrilled with the pending visit . Caruso's yacht, the Invictus, is expected to be anchored off Lido Isle for 16 days during a two-month stretch, in part for a gala christening party. The owner of a second boat, the nearly 130-foot Marama, wants to anchor in the harbor for five days to host a private wedding. The boat's owner wasn't identified.

A cigarette boat that collided with another boat near the mouth of Newport Harbor Sunday night may have reached speeds approaching 30 knots - six times the harbor's 5 knot speed limit, an official said. The crash left four of seven passengers on the two boats with minor injuries, the Daily Pilot reported . "You can tell by the damage to the slower, smaller boat that the impact was significant," Newport Beach Fire Department Capt. Glenn White said Tuesday. The slower-moving 14-foot power boat capsized and was later recovered.
