One likes to tell off-color jokes. Another was told he had 10 days to live--70 years ago--and the third says good humor helped her reach her 100th birthday. Three residents of the Huntington Terrace retirement home celebrated their centennials Wednesday, sharing cake and sparkling white wine with about 90 fellow residents, family members and employees. "It's wonderful--this only happens once in a lifetime," said Marion Harvey, who will be 100 on March 13. Born in a log cabin in Cardiff, Colo.

It's been billed as one of Southern California's premier retirement homes--a faux Mediterranean villa where retirees dine on duck and crab before mood-lit fountains and sink shots on a nine-hole putting course. But two wrongful death lawsuits filed by family members of residents at Morningside of Fullerton charge that beneath the glitz lies a pattern of neglect.

More than 20 John Marshall Elementary School students helped seniors at Emerald Court Retirement Apartments decorate their Christmas trees this year. The students, who are in the school's Peer Assistant Leaders program, spend one afternoon a month doing craft projects with the Emerald Court seniors. In November, they made ornaments for the tree, which they hung on its branches a few weeks later.

The Melodears will never try out for the Juilliard School of Music. Nor will they ever sing at Carnegie Hall. But the senior citizens singing group has something perhaps more important in mind. Its members are out to defy old age. For two hours each Friday, members meet at the Anaheim senior center to sing show and old-time tunes. The group is mostly made up of women, and the average age is about 70. Most have sung all their lives, some with choirs and similar singing groups.

Flowers, fountains and a panoramic view of Orange County provided the backdrop for the elegant annual Founders Gala on Sunday. The sweltering heat couldn't quell the enthusiasm of the 107 guests who gathered for a late-afternoon soiree at Casa La Cuesta, the hilltop home of hosts and arts benefactors Pat and William Podlich of Lemon Heights. The event was sponsored by Founders Plus, an organization made up of the original visionaries of the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa.

Joan Lesnick sometimes has fun answering the phone in a little girl's voice, forcing the caller to ask, "Is your mommy home?" Never mind that she's 53, has four children and four great-grandchildren. "I think it's fun," she says. It's the same voice she uses while singing in her own band. It's reminiscent of the tiny-voice style of Wee Bonnie Baker, who recorded the 1930s hit "Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh!" "I really don't have a singer's voice," said Lesnick.

Saying that elderly residents were in danger, state officials Wednesday shut down two retirement homes in Laguna Beach and Santa Ana without warning and removed 31 residents. The state Department of Social Services took the action after temporarily suspending the operating licenses of a Huntington Beach family that operates Laguna Manor in Laguna Beach and the Flower Care Center in Santa Ana.
