Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell were in California this week on a whirlwind tour to woo Golden State businesses to expand or relocate to their states. At the Westin South Coast Plaza hotel in Costa Mesa on Thursday, both state leaders took a breather to talk to The Times about why they were chatting with companies in Costa Mesa, Palo Alto and San Francisco. The governors, who cooked up this joint tour after discussing their mutual interest in job creation, took a much more amicable tack than Texas Gov. Rick Perry . Perry's swing through California in February was punctuated by radio ads that declared, "Building a business in California is next to impossible.

A marathon runner who teaches kindergarten at California Elementary School is leading about 60 kids on a 26-mile journey of their own. Vikki Clifford will run the OC Marathon on May 5, but the day before, she'll be cheering on students from her school's running club in a race of their own. She knows it's a lot to take on. "By the time I get home, I'm saying, 'There's a race I have to run tomorrow, and I'm dead," she said. California Elementary students from kindergarten to sixth grade are training every week for the Kids Run the OC event, when they will run a final mile to cap off 13 weeks of preparation.

Hayden Burthe sprinted through the last 30 seconds of his leg of California Elementary School's fundraiser and lay on the grass, but after pouring a bottle of water over his head, he hopped back up to celebrate the 35 laps he'd run. He and his fifth-grade classmates were churning along for a reason. "So we could get money [for the school] and so we could get pie in the face," said classmate Chris Abak, who ran 29 laps. Donors had pledged money to the school's technology program for each lap the Costa Mesa students ran at their annual jog-a-thon Wednesday.

HAL LEHMAN May 8, 1918 - February 26, 2013 Hal Lehman, 94, a 55-year resident of Newport Beach, died peacefully after a long illness, at his Lido Isle home, surrounded by family on Tuesday, February 26, 2013. Hal, the only surviving son of Gladys and Benjamin H. Lehman, was born at home in Boston on May 18, 1918 during the post-WW I flu epidemic. He was basically a life-long Californian, however,  having moved with his family to Berkeley in 1920, when his father joined the University of California faculty as a professor of English.  Hal's mother and father were divorced in 1922 and his  mother moved to Los Angeles where she subsequently became a screen writer and was one of the founders of the Screen Writers' Guild.  As a result of the divorce Hal spent a lot of time on trains between northern and southern California, spending one year with his father in Berkeley and the next with his mother in Toluca Lake.  That arrangement continued until he was 16, when he decided to stay in southern California closer to most of his friends.  Graduating from North Hollywood High, he went on to UC Berkeley  WWII was on the horizon and he joined  the Army in 1940.  A good portion of the next five years were spent in the South Pacific theater.

COSTA MESA - The exchange between player and coach as they prepared to leave Jim Scott Stadium was telling.

" Roche, the Sea Kings' leading scorer as a junior with 17 goals, has had a frustrating senior year filled with injury and sickness. He still provided a moment on Friday night that the Sea Kings won't soon forget.

There is no shortage of story lines for this weekend's Irvine Southern California Championships girls' water polo tournament. The three-day, 32-team tournament that begins Thursday offers many teams their last chance for competitive matches before the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Defending tournament champion Newport Harbor is the No. 3 seed in the tournament, and Corona del Mar the No. 4 seed. But one of the story lines for the Sailors has nothing to do with water polo. Newport Harbor has its winter formal dance Friday night at Knott's Berry Farm.
