Speaking with teenage matter-of-factness, Angie Scarborough describes her first years of high school as if they were the messed-up adolescence of some kid she used to know. There were problems at home, there were problems at school. At 18, she now admits she probably needed some sort of organized, good-girl involvement. "I was hanging out with the gang crowd," says Scarborough, of Costa Mesa. "They started drinking and getting into drugs and stuff. . . . I just wanted to get out of trouble."

About 100 would-be detectives attempted to solve a whodunit Saturday at a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater benefit for the Alliance for the Mentally Ill of Orange County. Guests gathered at the Anaheim Plaza Hotel under the guise of meeting Eleanor Randolph (played by "Night of the Living Dead" veteran Judy O'Dea), described as a self-centered, over-the-hill actress who has just completed her memoirs. The $50-per-person benefit was expected to net $4,000 for the alliance.

The Wellness Community of Orange County, which has offered "hope and friendship" to nearly 1,000 cancer patients since 1990, will close on July 15 because of a shortage of money, the executive director said Friday. "I'm not only sad, I feel drained, emotionally drained," Shirley Lorenz said. "Our current financial condition, combined with the fiscal crisis of Orange County at this particular time, leave us no choice. We are very saddened this action had to occur, but there were no options."
