The name Henry David Thoreau suggests the thoughtful consideration of nature, the refusal to yield to an unjust law. But on the fifth anniversary of the Henry David Thoreau Society of Orange County, club founder Tom Koch quickly turns aside any questions about Walden Pond or civil disobedience. Thoreau, Schmoreau, it's all the same to him.

Gov. Pete Wilson has vetoed a bill that would have required insurers to cover severe, biologically based mental illness on par with their coverage of other organic diseases. The action was decried by mental health advocates in California and nationally, who had hoped the nation's most populous state would join 19 others in adopting a law that creates some degree of parity.

Pushing his agenda to reduce teen pregnancy, Gov. Pete Wilson on Wednesday announced more than $25 million in grants to programs in the Southland, including $3.4 million to Orange County organizations. The awards to groups in Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties are part of $53 million in Community Challenge Grants to be doled out statewide to programs that "improve and protect" the lives of children, state officials announced.

To reduce teen pregnancy and cultivate parenting skills among teens who already have children, Olive Crest Homes & Services for Abused Children, in partnership with the city, will launch a new program Feb. 1 called "Pathways to Responsibility." Officials said three Anaheim neighborhoods have an alarmingly high rate of teen pregnancy, and statistics show the problem to be bigger in the city than in other parts of Orange County.

Working women, whether they serve lattes in coffee shops or run their own firms, can join the county's newest chapter of the American Business Women's Assn. Founders of the Buena Park chapter, the ninth in the county, said they want to provide all working women with a ready network of business and personal sources. In contrast to some professional organizations, the ABWA has few criteria.

It's show-and-tell at every meeting of the new Bead Society of Orange County, where members, freighted with the fruits of their obsession, ogle one another's baubles. "It's copal," said society president Jackie Kilcoyne, fingering the amber-like, mushroom-size orbs she'd strung together before a recent meeting. "It's very wonderful," said an admiring Marian Sanders, silver frogs dangling from her ears.

The NAACP and the city of Santa Ana will present the fourth annual African-American Citizen of Distinction Award to nine county organizations and residents Friday for their service to the black community. "The awards are our way of thanking people who are doing a little more than average for the community and to encourage others to do the same," said James Colquitt, president of the NAACP's Orange County chapter. Nine winners will be selected in a variety of categories.

The Garden Grove Strawberry Festival started in 1958 when the strawberry was king of the city's agricultural crops. The strawberry has since been all but crowded out by growth and development, but the festival lives on, attracting crowds of 200,000 or more over Memorial Day weekend each year. The festival makes about $100,000 a year that Strawberry Festival Assn. directors hand over to worthy local organizations.

Like the hundreds of people they serve every day, the Someone Cares Soup Kitchen soon may not have a home. The group said Friday it has been given until April 1, just shy of its 10-year anniversary, to move out of the First United Methodist Church on 19th Street, where it has been dishing out lunch to the poor and homeless for the last four years. Someone Cares is the last organization in the city that serves meals to the poor.

Well, that's the way it goes. "The Home Show" at Security Pacific Gallery (through Aug. 22) is one of the most engaging exhibits curator Mark Johnstone ever organized for Orange County viewers. But it's also his swan song. As a result of the merger between Security Pacific and BankAmerica Corp., the 3-year-old gallery will no longer be home to thematic exhibits of work gathered by Johnstone from Southern California galleries and private collections.
