I think it's time for the people of Orange County to wake up. Orange County Sheriff Brad Gates has finally had a verdict rendered against him for violating the civil rights of a political rival by using sheriff's investigators to harass him. It's unfortunate, however, that the blame lies on Brad, yet the burden once again will fall on county taxpayers. (In 1987 Orange County bailed Gates out in a related matter to the tune of $375,000.) What's even more distressing is the attitude of some prominent people around the community.

Victor Andersen hasn't spent much time away from his anvil, forge and belt drive for 60 years. The century-old appliances are more than the tools of his trade. They are what give one of few remaining blacksmiths in the Southland a reason to wake up every morning just before 6 at his home in Orange. They encourage this 72-year-old grandfather to get to his shop in Tustin by 7 a.m. They are what keep him there seven days a week until at least 4 p.m.

An identical twin whose plot to kill her sister made headlines around the world sobbed uncontrollably Friday as a judge sentenced her to 26 years to life in prison. Despite her emotional, last-minute protest of innocence, Jeen "Gina" Han, 24, dubbed "the evil twin," received the maximum sentence. "It is obvious Miss Han is a danger to society, particularly her own family," said Orange County Superior Court Judge Eileen C. Moore. "All of her family have been victims of her crimes."

Local water quality regulators Wednesday night halted a $200-million tollway project in Orange County when they denied a discharge permit for the controversial proposal. On a 3 to 2 vote, the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board declined to issue a permit to the Transportation Corridor Agencies in Irvine, the operator of 51 miles of toll roads in Orange County. The TCA sought the permit for the planned Tesoro Extension that would lengthen the Foothill tollway 5.5 miles from Oso Parkway in Rancho Santa Margarita to Cow Camp Road east of San Juan Capistrano.

The Orange County coroner has identified the man who jumped 500 feet to his death from a helicopter as it flew over the Newport Beach shoreline Tuesday afternoon. Gregory McFadden, 61, of West Covina, was pronounced dead at a local hospital after opening the helicopter door and leaping out, falling about 500 feet to the ocean.

The Orange County coroner's office reported that McFadden “jumped from a helicopter in-flight” and the Federal Aviation Administration is reviewing the incident.

 Restaurants in Westlake Village might be smart to offer promotions for any Orange County fans who come to the area on Friday night for Southern Section Pac-5 Division playoff action. There should be plenty. Santa Ana Mater Dei is playing at Oaks Christian and Anaheim Servite is playing at Westlake. Mater Dei quarterback Chase Forrest is the nephew of Oaks Christian volleyball Coach Chris Forrest, so he can offer some suggestions.   Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

A firefighter suffered minor injuries and one building was damaged Sunday as a blaze charred 30 acres in Silverado, an unincorporated area of southeast Orange County, authorities said. The injured firefighter was taken to a hospital for treatment to his ankle, said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi. He said the damaged structure was an outbuilding. No homes are threatened, Concialdi said, and authorities hope to keep the so-called Baker fire to less than 100 acres.
