Where else but Orange County would you find a Caribbean-themed benefit set in a Spanish-style courtyard celebrating the richness of Afro-American history? With the sultry rhythms of reggae wafting through the warm air (along with the spicy aromas of authentic island fare), Tom Coley said the mix was hardly accidental. "Orange County is blessed with a diversity of groups," said Coley, president of the newly formed Black Cultural Council of the Historical and Cultural Foundation of Orange County.

Like a lost kitty, a 115-pound mountain lion sought temporary refuge Saturday in the backyard tree of a Mission Viejo home. But the big cat did not make 24958 Tree Ave. his home for long. A call to the Sheriff's Department brought out a helicopter, animal control officers and sheriff's deputies. The cat managed to elude them all for about two hours before Paul Henisey, who lives several houses down the street, saw in a bush what at first looked like "the hindquarters of a big German shepherd."

Got a medical bill lying around in a kitchen drawer or office file? Quick, go get it and then make some effort to pay or settle it, especially if the date on the bill goes back beyond 30 days. Without some attempt to resolve the bill, it will damage your credit rating, often badly. And that poor credit rating can mean higher rates for credit cards, cars and mortgages. It can even keep you from getting a needed loan or credit card. "Medical bills are the most commonly reported non-revolving credit account sent to collection and reported on a U.S. consumer's credit report," says Mark Rukavina, director of the Access Project, a health advocacy group based in Boston.

If you are what you buy, then Jacqueline Gray is pure African-American pride. The mother of three says her holiday gifts reflect her interest in black history--from the African tribeswoman doll she is plans to give her daughter to colorful, long woven strips called "kente cloth" for her husband to wear with his tuxedo. Finding such items was difficult until recently in Orange County, where blacks represent not quite 2% of 2.4 million population.
