The Saddleback Regional Chamber of Commerce is changing its name to the South Orange County Chamber of Commerce, effective July 1. The new name reflects a natural progression of the chamber's growth, which serves several communities in the southern part of the county, according to the chamber. The change is not intended to interfere with other local chambers, said executive director Pat Crockett. Instead, the South Orange County Chamber of Commerce will try to help the smaller chambers by expanding its existing services and adding new ones, which will be announced in July, officials said.

The South Orange County Chambers of Commerce recently made its second move since 1994. Formerly in Rancho Santa Margarita, the chamber group's office is now located in the Oak Tree retail and business complex at 23166 Los Alisos Blvd., suite 236. Chamber officials said their previous site was too large. By moving to smaller offices, the chamber was able to save money. "We now have all the size we need and we're centrally located to reach all our affiliates," Marketing Director Leon Clark said.

Bowing to South County's growth and the formation of several new cities there in recent years, the 22-year-old South Orange County Chamber of Commerce has split itself into an affiliation of five local organizations. The South Orange County Chambers of Commerce will remain the regional administrative organization, President Robert Lay said. The local groups are the Aliso Viejo, Laguna Hills, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita chambers of commerce.

Plans for a center to help businesses are among the new fiscal year goals of the South Orange County Chamber of Commerce. Pat Crockett, president of the newly renamed chamber, which is based in Laguna Hills, said Monday that the organization wants to establish a South Orange County Center for Economic Development.

Two months before the city of Lake Forest is officially incorporated, businesses in the community are split between two competing chambers of commerce. Frustrated with being overlooked by the South Orange County Chamber of Commerce, which is based in Laguna Hills, 20 local business owners have banded together to form the Lake Forest/El Toro Chamber of Commerce. Although some merchants say the rivalry will hurt business, at least one member of the council-elect said it could help.

What America saw and heard from Jack Palance was the culmination of total frustration and anger of a man who will just not accept being considered washed up. The man possesses the talents to turn in a sterling performance; the fact that he has added some gray does not diminish his acting capabilities. I really admired the curmudgeon and his rather ribald, sassy way of expressing himself.
