Gangs, gators and government here

A SCENE from the movie version of “West Side Story.” You can the live version at the Gem Theater in Garden Grove starting this week.

We are well into July now, which means some of us are planning – or have started – vacations or vacation trips. Just so you know, here’s what you may miss in the West Orange County area if you take off today …

WEATHER: For the communities of Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Stanton and Westminster, it will be cloudy for the first part of the week, with clouds clearing on Wednesday and turning sunny by Thursday.  Temperatures will range from the mid-70s on Monday and Tuesday up to the mid-80s by week’s end.
