LOVE IS IN THE AIR: There was...

LOVE IS IN THE AIR: There was a special reason why Eric Bond Scott, 28, and Yolanda Valenzuela, 32, were married Saturday while flying in a small plane over the Spoons restaurant in Buena Park. That's where they first met and fell in love. . . . Scott will be a pilot soon, and during the airborne wedding ceremonies, they vowed to use future flying time to take blankets and food to the needy. "As soon as we met, it was one of the first things we talked about," Scott says. "That's how we knew we had to be together."

BORIS' LIST: For decades, Rabbi Haim Asa of Fullerton's Temple Beth Tikvah has made a personal crusade of gaining recognition for King Boris III of Bulgaria. During World War II, the king saved the country's entire Jewish community--including Asa's family--by defying his Nazi allies. . . . Asa's efforts bear fruit this weekend when King Simeon II comes to the Southland to accept an award from the Jewish National Fund on behalf of his late father. The deposed king, who lives in exile in Spain, comes to Orange County Sunday to visit several churches.

STANDING HERE: Former Vice President Dan Quayle was among the mourners at the Richard Nixon funeral in Yorba Linda last month. Thursday, he returns to the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace to lead its first '96 Issues Forum at 8 a.m. . . . But he's bringing his ink pen too. Quayle will also sign copies of his new book, "Standing Firm." Don't bring your own--he'll sign only the $25 copies sold in the library's gift shop.

NEW HONDA DEALER: The Orange County Sheriff's Department is poised to accept a new addition in its fleet of high-powered crime-fighting vehicles: a fuel-stingy 1991 Honda Civic. . . . The car, seized during an October, 1992, narcotics investigation, recently became available as Sheriff's Department property when prosecutors disposed of the drug case. The compact could see action soon--county supervisors should approve the award today.
