A project at an Irvine elementary school to help those in need has taken on a human face--that of a 4-year-old boy suffering from a rare heart condition. About 500 students, parents and firefighters who have befriended the ailing boy, Jeremy Wifler, gathered in an Irvine park Sunday morning for a pancake breakfast that raised about $2,000 to help his family pay medical bills.

Students across Orange County snuggled up in their pajamas Thursday for a good long read. Others sampled that rare delicacy, green eggs and ham. In every corner, grown-ups and kids risked bad hair days by donning tall, candy-cane striped hats. Sure, they looked silly, but their motivation--promoting literacy--was serious. The occasion was Read Across America day, a nationwide reading extravaganza pegged to the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.

With mariachi music and poetry, flowers and ribbons, a small elementary school in a modest Santa Ana neighborhood was named Friday for a young teacher whose sudden death reminded those who knew her that unique gifts are to be found in ordinary places and ordinary people. Lydia Romero Cruz was born in Santa Ana, attended Santa Ana schools, belonged to Santa Ana community associations and, after graduating from college, returned to teach in Santa Ana.
