Pat Neisser Once upon a time, not very long ago, a snow white arctic hare sat chatting away with an ebony raven on the edge of the tundra in Churchill, Canada. An awestruck busload of 14 visitors gawked out of their windows, wondering if this was a Northern branch of Disneyland. For at least five minutes, this friendly interchange continued until the raven gracefully spread its wings and soared away to settle on a rock overlooking Hudson Bay. The arctic hare remained stoic as a few intrepid souls crawled closer to look.

RIVERSIDE — This Costa Mesa High girls’ soccer team won the program’s sixth straight league championship and advanced to the playoffs for what Coach Dan Johnston believes is at least 10 straight seasons. But after the Mustangs fell to host Riverside Poly, 2-1, in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs Wednesday at UC Riverside, Johnston said this team may have come farther than the other league champions to reach similar status. “There were 11 new players on this team and the first few games, it was ugly,” Johnston said.

Being the nature lovers that we are and always looking for a new adventure, my husband, Arthur, and I decided to take a trip to Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. We've seen penguins in the Antarctic, South Africa and New Zealand, and a vast array of animals in East Africa, Botswana and South Africa. Now it was time to check out polar bears. Our journey began in Winnipeg, Canada, where we met our group of 12 other people who have traveled around the world. Let's face it — polar bears in Churchill are not number one on anyone's travel list.

Disney's acclaimed nature films offer vivid portrayals of animals in the wild. They entertain and educate young viewers in the biological realities of Earth's habitats. But for many years, this documentary style of observation has taken a back seat to the amplified world of zany computer animation. Silly cartoon animals dominate screen fare for our children. Talking birds, dogs, donkeys and penguins wisecrack jokes in trivial screwball plots. But Disney's new wildlife film "Bears" is an outstanding counterpoint to all that nonsense.

The collective groan from the crowd is as much a part of soccer as the colorful cleats. Spectators who take in 90 minutes of action are virtually guaranteed to see a series of maddening misfires, marginal miscalculations and the inevitable lapses of perfection that turn scoring chances into wasted opportunities. Those who play the game are weaned on frustration, forced to justify as unlucky the dozens of instances each game in which an inch here or there might have altered the outcome, but instead left the coveted spotlight unclaimed.

The big news in the public library world this week is the opening of the new San Diego Central Library. The old central library, built in 1954, was small and, according to Sunday's Los Angeles Times, long overdue for replacement. In fact, it sort of echoes Costa Mesa's story, except that we haven't gotten our central library yet. For 40 years, people participated in efforts to replace the San Diego library building, and although a number of branch libraries were built, the central library plans were put on hold.
