For more than two years, Ranger John Gannaway has been planning a party that the guest of honor is expected to flee at first opportunity. To mark the reopening of the nature center at the Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park today, Gannaway, the park's head ranger, will release a once-injured -- but now healthy -- hawk back into the wild. Gannaway said he won't take offense if the creature leaves the celebration a little early.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday hiked landfill fees 50% for the gardeners, construction workers and other small business owners who truck refuse to local landfills. * The board voted 3 to 0, with two supervisors absent, for the increase over the sole objection of hauler Paul Hyek of Fountain Valley, who complained that raising the fee from $10 to $15 for small pickup trucks threatens his ability to make a living.
