Wearing pigtails and a pink sweat shirt, Jennifer Gilbert-Duran skipped up the steps of a Pasadena home to deliver a Valentine's Day gift basket. But as 21-year-old Richard McLeod signed for the package, he got a less romantic surprise. A sheriff's deputy placed him under arrest on a charge of failing to appear in court on an open-container violation. "So that isn't mine?" McLeod asked as he was handcuffed. Anne Arundel County Sheriff Ron Bateman is no Cupid, but he did spend yesterday playing matchmaker: pairing a dozen crime suspects with their outstanding warrants.

A Westminster charity is turning castoffs into cash to finance programs for the needy. Shepherd's Staff, an ecumenical outreach ministry that has for a decade provided help to Carroll families, counts its annual clothing donations in tons, said director Kathryn C. Brown. Some donations are suitable for the charity's career and school clothing cupboards, but others are not much more than rags - stained, frayed or well-worn. The discard pile has decreased significantly since Ruth Hernandez offered her sewing skills to the charity that once helped her. "Kathy and I got to talking about sewing and what she needed," said Hernandez, 48. "I wanted something to do and I had ideas that could help."

I don't normally attend Eagle Scout ceremonies. The North County News runs announcements of new Eagle Scouts and their photos in the paper, so the scouts get their much-deserved press without me showing up at their official Eagle Court of Honor. But I went to Dylan Norwood's ceremony last night. You see, Dylan is one special scout. I got to know him earlier this year when he was the subject of a cover story. He had half his brain removed when he was just 2 years old by Dr. Ben Carson.

What better way to celebrate the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo than by mixing up a batch of guacamole? When choosing avocados to make the dip, select fruit that yields to gentle pressure. If you're planning to use it later in the week, look for firmness. The California Avocado Commission offers these tips as well: * To peel an avocado, cut the fruit in half and remove the seed. Then start at the small end to remove the skin with a knife. * To retain a fresh green color, peeled avocados should either be eaten immediately or should be sprinkled with lemon or lime juice and covered in an air-tight container.
