She's oil to his vinegar, but today–and perhaps only today–Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and District Attorney Tony Rackauckas are simultaneously partying over the same concept.
That's right, folks. Orange County's top elected law enforcement duo are donning pointy paper caps, blowing horns and counting enormous amounts of candles on birthday cakes.
It's the joke of supernatural powers that made the only thing Rackauckas and Hutchens have in common is that they share a birth date.
(They aren't alone. Today's birthdays also include John Updike, Edgar Cayce, Grover Cleveland, Dane Cook, Vanessa Williams and Queen Latifah.)
course, Rackauckas' March 18th entry onto the planet happened in 1843.
No wait. Official records claim it was 1943. Hutchens' emergence happened
12 years later.
Here's what astrologers say is their mutual fate for this new year:
strong desire to express yourself creatively or in completely different
ways is likely to take hold this year. A new cycle of independence,
progressiveness and change begins for you. Your ego is awakened and you
seek new ways to express yourself. Surprises can most certainly happen
this year, as well as the urge to do something completely new.”
Translation: Hutchens will prematurely retire from her post this year.

R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
