On the day Ford launched its new-generation aluminum body F-150 pickup truck, arch-rival Chevrolet won the 2014 North American truck of the year award with its new Silverado at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Silverado was last named truck of the year in 2007 and the Corvette was last named car of the year in 1998.

I am a 94-year-old woman now living in San Diego who for most of my life lived in beautiful Orange County. I just read with dismay plans to build a tract of houses in narrow Silverado and Trabuco Canyons. To clear the way, this would mean cutting hundreds of live oak and sycamore trees, plus bulldozing. What a shame. I hope this plan is fought. Lucile Goodrich San Diego

At the local cafe, lunchtime topics often begin and end with the virtues of the turkey melt, one of the most delectable items on a menu that many know by heart. But recently, the conversation veered into much more distressing territory. On this particular sun-dappled afternoon, the topic involved Assembly Speaker Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove) and his purported efforts to torpedo the town's water district. As happens with most issues here, the debate was raging at the Pali Cafe. Pringle, leader of the Assembly's Republican majority, had set off a firestorm in this tiny community by threatening to merge its longtime water district with a larger, far more powerful agency, perhaps in Irvine or Rancho Santa Margarita.

GM said does not know of any crashes or injuries resulting from the problem. GM dealers will inspect the seatbacks and make adjustments if necessary under new vehicle warranty. The recall includes an additional 2,700 trucks sold in Canada and Mexico.

In the automotive world, no one is more loyal than a truck owner. Lassie on her best day couldn't match the fidelity of someone who buys a particular brand of pickup. Once they choose Ford or Chevy or Dodge, usually only a pine box lures them away. With this in mind, the goal of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado wasn't to lure new buyers with extraneous bells and whistles. Rather, the 2014 model, rolling into dealerships now, aims to give the Chevy faithful exactly what they liked about their existing trucks, while correcting previous flaws.

No suspects or specific location for the gunshots have been identified, he said. Authorities have closed down about a three-mile stretch of Santiago Canyon Road between Silverado Canyon Road and Modjeska Canyon Road. “It's going to be a long search,” Dwyer said.

For decades, Chevrolet's Silverado pickup has carried the load for General Motors Co., most recently providing needed cash and loyal buyers through the automaker's bailout and bankruptcy. Truck sales remain central to GM's North American strategy, even as it has uncharacteristic success with new car models including the small Cruze sedan and the Chevy Equinox crossover. That's largely because GM makes $9,000 to $11,000 from each pickup sale, compared with about $5,000 for a passenger car, according to Brian Johnson, an analyst with Barclays Research.

You've been warned, Ford. Chevrolet announced Monday that it will officially unveil its all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 pickup on Dec. 13 at a special event in Detroit. The truck's fancier cousin, the GMC Sierra, also will break cover. The pair will be on display to the public at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January and production will start early next year. Details (and images) of the new truck are scarce, but bet your trailer hitch on this new model having a more fuel-efficient lineup of engines that likely will include a V-6, possibly turbocharged.

The morning talk on Wildcat Canyon Road has turned from rattlesnakes to tarantulas. Neighbors stand in the shade of the oaks and sycamores that arch over the cul-de-sac. It's an impromptu gathering on a summer day when there is no great rush to be at work. Summer, they say, is snake season, which overlaps tarantula season in the fall. Already, tarantula hawks - the orange-winged wasps that capture the spiders to feed their larva - are out hunting. One resident, Steve Kerrigan, has lived on this road for 14 years; another, Chay Peterson, for 25 years.
