COSTA MESA - Carlos Vazquez was always one of the smallest players on the football field. He made up for his lack of size by playing his heart out every down for Costa Mesa High. On a day to pay respect to Vazquez, it was fitting small candles formed a huge heart at midfield. Lighting up the candles proved to be difficult with the wind picking up at Costa Mesa on Tuesday. But many remembered how Vazquez used to spark a room and a team with his smile, laugh and energy. His former teammates and coaches recalled how the 5-foot-5, 150-pounder used to light up players a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier than him. Andrew Albers, a 6-foot-8, 285-pounder, was the biggest of those players.

A group of parents and children gathered inside a Costa Mesa office building Tuesday evening to remember those who died in the recent South Asia tsunami and to pledge support for the youth who survived. The event was organized by Parent Help USA, a group formed in 1985 to raise awareness of child abuse. Founder and director Sally Kanarek said she is concerned that children who survived the tsunami will be treated improperly. At the candlelight vigil, attendees prayed for the victims and listened as children read their own letters about the tragedy.

Already grieving the Friday morning death of redshirt sophomore catcher Jourdan Watanabe, the Orange Coast College baseball program has had some anxious moments in recent days concerning the health of freshman infielder Trevor McDonald. McDonald, a four-year varsity performer at Estancia High who earned first-team All-Orange Coast League honors and was a member of the Newport-Mesa Dream Team as a senior last spring, has been fighting an aggressive infection. The infection, generated by what everyone thought was a mild ankle spike wound in the Pirates’ Feb. 24 game at Chaffey, has required at least two surgeries and put him in the Intensive Care Unit for the weekend at Hoag Hospital, OCC Coach John Altobelli said.

Six years ago this past Sept. 11, nearly 3,000 Americans were killed by terrorists on a morning none of us will forget. The images of smoke pluming over the New York City skyline, of people jumping from the towers, of the towers collapsing, of our Pentagon in ruins, of a charred Pennsylvania field, changed the course of history and the lives of Americans. We mourned for the innocent victims and for the heroic emergency workers who lost their lives while helping others. And we did it in unison.

The U2 song “One” echoed through the gym of Corona del Mar High School as kids filed into the bleachers dressed in designer jeans and their new back-to-school shoes. The helium balloons tied to the bleacher guard rails were red, white and blue, but there were few references to 9/11 at Corona del Mar High School’s assembly Tuesday to mark the sixth anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Student organizers opted to hold a “Unity Assembly” to mark 9/11, instead of a more traditional remembrance of the 2,974 people who died in the attacks.
