HUNTINGTON BEACH ? Edison High's hitters had a tough time penetrating the Newport Harbor High boys' volleyball team's defense on Monday night. The Sailors, not known as a dominant blocking team, were stellar at the net, tallying eight blocks in their 25-15, 22-25, 15-10 victory over the Chargers in the title game of the Orange County Championships at Edison High School. It marked Newport Harbor's first Orange County Championships title since 2002 and the first for this group of players.

It's been a year of great success, yet of overwhelming loss for Tiger Woods. On Saturday, Woods, who has won six straight PGA Tour events amid dealing with the loss of his father, Earl, to cancer in May, will try to have some fun. He will host his second annual Block Party at The Grove of Anaheim. Part of the festivities will be at Mesa Verde Country Club. However, it will be closed to the public. Only those who purchased tickets for the benefit will be able to attend.The block party is to raise funds for the Tiger Woods Learning Center, a 14-acre, youth-education facility in Anaheim.

The last time Tiger Woods was in Corona del Mar it was to prepare for one of the most exciting moments on a golf course. His return to his part-time residence this time will no doubt prove another thrill, but this time it will be off the golf course. In June, Woods was prepping for the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego. He was at home the week before, working out at a local gym to ready himself for the nation’s championship. He won the tournament in a playoff over Rocco Mediate, playing with torn knee ligaments and fractures in the same leg. It was one of the most captivating major championships in the history of the sport.

He prefers wearing stark white clothing onstage. His demeanor is reserved; some might even call him shy at the microphone. He is arguably the world’s most recognizable athletic star; an American phenomenon. Tiger Woods invited the community to his fourth annual block party on behalf of the Tiger Woods Learning Center, and more than 1,000 people showed up at the Grove of Anaheim to assist Woods in his pursuit of giving disadvantaged kids a leg up on life. By the end of the evening $700,000 was raised.

There has been some conflict in the neighborhood. The problems are not so much the differences of opinions as they are the way the opinions are being expressed. Last week at the block party, one woman railed on another expressing her discontent with how her neighbor's table had been set up. This started a yelling match that sucked in several other neighbors. Feelings were hurt. People were talking. Things got blown out of proportion. We started the neighborhood meeting this week with a review of our agreed upon shared values: security, cleanliness, respect, community sharing and justice.

Alicia Robinson On a Friday night, it's not unusual to find trendy twentysomethings listening to hip hop music, drinking cocktails, and ... shopping? South Coast Plaza already has the shopping covered, so a handful of the shopping center's stores have added the music and drinks in the hope of wooing the elusive younger crowd in greater numbers. A "block party" with music, fashion shows, hors d'oeuvres and giveaways held Friday at South Coast Plaza was the third such event the center has tried, and it was expected to be the most successful.

I am not sure what the view from the mesa is this week because I am overwhelmed by laundry and homework. The dog needs her shots, the car needs to be washed, and all I want to do is sit on my cluttered patio to finish the novel I have been "almost done" with for a week. My head is down in my own little world. I know a man died in our community this week, and it seems like I should care about that. A friend sent me a text from the Costa Mesa City Council meeting this week and I felt a twinge of guilt for not being there.

My neighborhood held its annual Easter egg hunt Sunday, just as it has for the 25 years I’ve lived here. The agenda was pretty much as it has always been, only the faces had changed. The hard-core veterans who have lived here as long or longer than I have still run the show. But young families are moving in and putting down roots and preparing for heavier duties. And a new generation of small people is learning how to get inside the heads of the people hiding the eggs — especially eggs with money in them.
