Julie Elkins cried only twice during her 11-year battle with breast cancer. The first time was while walking out of a clinic with the words, "You have cancer" ringing in her ears. The second was when her husband shaved her head. The Costa Mesa resident was also unprepared for the chemotherapy-induced loss of her eyebrows and eyelashes, she recalled.

NEWPORT BEACH - It has been a long journey in high school tennis for Corona del Mar High senior Alec Adamson. His game has grown exponentially over the years, as his height shot up too.

I've had the good fortune to visit many of America's most cherished memorial parks. I've been several times to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. I've visited the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl Crater in Honolulu, and Gettysburg National Cemetery on the hallowed Civil War battlefield. As we approach Memorial Day 2013, one park I'll always cherish is one I visited 10 summers ago in France - the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Colleville-sur-Mer.

IRVINE - It was a loss about which UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie wanted to be anything but trivial. But nothing less than a bit of baseball lore that unfolded at Anteater Ballpark on Wednesday may have upstaged the consequences of the Anteaters' 7-3 nonconference loss to visiting San Diego.
