Like the dinosaurs in its displays, the Orange County Natural History Museum is in danger of extinction less than five months after it opened. If directors of the museum cannot raise $150,000, it will close within two weeks, Susan Moore-Laux, the museum's assistant director, said Friday. She said the museum has launched a letter-writing campaign to Orange County businesses seeking donations. "We're in dire straits here.

A telling indicator of the fragility of our marine shoreline is the revelation that those who love the tidal pools in Little Corona del Mar are loving them to death. Little Corona has lost perhaps as much as half the number of starfish, octopuses and other marine species that it had a decade ago because of the intrusion of visitor traffic. A coalition of researchers, environmentalists, teachers and others is so concerned that it is lobbying to arrest the deterioration of the area.

As families prepare for their Thanksgiving feasts, a Chapman University sociology professor reminds celebrants that one of today's most popular American holidays was founded on the blood, land and history of Native American peoples. "Thanksgiving is a happy time for sharing. But we need to remember there is a dual reality . . . when reflecting upon the origins of this holiday," said Professor Paul Apodaca, himself of Navajo, Mexican and Spanish descent.

A police helicopter spiraled down into the parking lot, blowing up a dust storm and making the children gathered below screech with terror and delight. "Ho, ho, ho!" boomed a voice over the helicopter's loudspeaker. "Merry Christmas!" The chopper landed and a fat man in a red suit struggled to climb out of the cramped cockpit. He waddled over and the children, some of them wearing thick glasses and others carrying white canes, ran up to hug him.

After a nearly daylong search, investigators in Santa Ana said they pulled 404 snakes -- more than half of them dead -- from the cluttered home of a Newport Beach elementary school teacher. Reptile specialists called to the five-bedroom house said the surviving ball pythons would be treated by veterinarians and then offered to zoos, schools or collectors. One of the specialists estimated that the surviving snakes were worth at least $100,000. William Buchman, identified as a snake breeder, was arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty, a felony.

John Wooden was a young high school teacher and coach in the 1930s when he first wrote his personal definition of success, searching for a way to assure his students — and their parents — they could be successful without earning all A's. "I wanted to give them something to aspire to beyond higher marks in English classes or more statistics in sports," he told The Times in 2004. Wooden tied success not to achievement, wealth or fame, but to how close a person came to their potential.

A report released Thursday calls for limiting the number of visitors to the south end of Corona del Mar State Beach, where schoolchildren, tourists and bait-seeking fishermen are contributing to the decline of sea life in the popular tide pools there. The much-anticipated plan, which also calls for more supervision of visitors, follows research documenting the disappearance of marine animals--including starfish and octopuses--from Orange County's most heavily trafficked tide pools.
