Ten massive sculptures made out of more than 23 tons of canned food were unveiled at South Coast Plaza on Saturday. Volunteers from 10 Orange County companies who participated in the 2009 Canstruction event worked late into the night Friday to have the displays ready for shoppers to ogle Saturday morning. The sculptures will be at the shopping center until Sept. 27, when the canned goods will be donated to the Orange County Food Bank, which is experiencing a food shortage due to a growing demand for its services.

COSTA MESA ? To the casual observer, it looked like the essence of posh Orange County. Booths surrounded a shimmering blue pool on top of the Westin South Coast Plaza, giving out free food, drinks and T-shirts to passersby. Artists stood at the poolside and sketched in front of the crowd. A silent auction table displayed ornate baskets of food, chocolate and wine with signatures below each one. On that same table, though, a small, propped-up poster hinted at the true meaning of Saturday night?

Deepa Bharath Those looking for a little help to put festive food on their table this Thursday can get it from a Westside organization. Share Our Selves, a local nonprofit organization that has helped thousands of families celebrate Thanksgiving for the last 35 years will do it again, as it gives away 300 baskets or more every day. It began doling out the goodies last week. The group, with the help of its strong base of donors and volunteers, puts together bags with turkeys, vegetables, canned goods and bread, said Karen McGlinn, executive director of Share Our Selves.

ENSENADA, MEXICO - Before lunch began, Commodore Chuck Iverson sat in the back corner of a restaurant, reviewing the guest list. It seemed a generic Newport Beach scene: place settings arranged on white tablecloths. Ocean view. Members of the Newport Ocean Sailing Assn., or NOSA, bedecked in navy blazers and khaki pants, mingling with the mayor. Still, the group hadn't valet parked their cars outside. They'd arrived by van. And they were greeted with glasses of wine, not from California, but vineyards in Mexico.

The Harbor Soaring Society can stay in Costa Mesa's Fairview Park for the next few years, thanks to recent approval from city parks commissioners. The Parks and Recreation Commission on Thursday unanimously approved a five-year extension of the group's permit to operate in the 208-acre park's southwest quadrant. Based on changes suggested last month, the roughly 100-member club - made up of aficionados of radio-controlled model aircraft - now needs the commission's approval for any modifications to its designated area, which includes a runway.

It would perhaps be easier for UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie to deal with his unbeatable pitching duo getting beat, if Thursday's nonconference series opener against visiting San Diego State weren't so, well, winnable. But it was the Aztecs who dealt the Anteaters some seldom-seen futility in a 3-1 victory that lit Gillespie's fuse. UCI senior starting pitcher Andrew Morales threw seven shutout innings and handed the ball over to the nation's most productive closer in Sam Moore, after Morales had thrown 106 pitches.

An Orange County Superior Court Judge this week banned dancing at a quintessential Newport Beach restaurant - at least for the time being. In a preliminary injunction handed down Tuesday, Judge Derek Hunt sided with the city of Newport Beach and barred Woody's Wharf on the Balboa Peninsula from setting up a dance floor or using its patio past 11 p.m. City officials took the early decision as a sign that Hunt will eventually side with the city,...

TUSTIN - As Corona del Mar High began to mount a comeback on Friday, an assistant coach told the boys' lacrosse team of what he believed was the inevitable. "They're going to fall," said Jeremy Sieverts, referring to Beckman. In the past, that has always been the case. The Sea Kings always beat the Patriots, and they always beat them up badly. The teams met a dozen times in the previous six seasons, CdM winning by an average of 11 goals per game. Eleven goals are how much the Sea Kings needed to score in their latest matchup to knock off Beckman again.

In the Newport Beach Police Department's call center Tuesday, dispatcher Spring Case checked on the license plate number of a driver who'd been pulled over for an expired tag. A small, red flag appeared on one of Case's half-dozen monitors. It told her this driver had a history with the NBPD. "He was actually pulled over on [March] 10th and cited for the same thing," she said. A month ago, the dispatcher would have had to call the Police Department's records office if she wanted to access such tidbits.

MISSION VIEJO - There are three Mulvaney sisters on the field this year for the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team. Senior Kendall Mulvaney, one of four team captains, is joined by her freshman twin sisters Kennedy and Katherine. All three played substantial minutes in Thursday evening's nonleague game at Capistrano Valley. There was only one Eggeman out there for the Cougars. It just felt like more. Senior Riley Eggeman scored eight goals as Capo Valley rolled over the Sea Kings, 16-6.

You might want to ask for a mulligan if this happens. Scientists at UC Irvine announced Wednesday that titanium-coated clubs can cause plants and grass on golf courses to catch on fire. Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi told the Associated Press that the results confirm suspicions investigators have had that titanium clubs caused a fire that burned 25 acres at Irvine's Shady Canyon in 2010 and a much smaller fire a year later at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo that burned close to homes.

A massive suspension that had sidelined more than 700 Little League baseball players in Newport Beach has been lifted and games will be allowed to resume. A dispute between adults -- those in the league and those in the group that oversees it -- had resulted in the cancellation of two games for the young players. Joe Jennings, a board member for Newport Beach Little League, told the Daily Pilot that the punishment seemed like an “extreme action that has been harsh for so many kids.” District officials, who oversee the league and others in Orange County, handed down the suspension after determining that the league had too many coaches serving on its board of directors.

I read with interest the article "Report: Departing cops cite politics," (Feb. 27) , regarding data provided to the Costa Mesa City Council about the statistics for our sworn police personnel (staffing, recruitment, attrition and years of service). The council had requested the information, and it was provided by the city's Assistant CEO Tamara LeTourneau. This is particularly important to me since actual facts are not obvious, while I have no trouble finding many points of view about our Police Department's status and its ability or inability to adequately serve us and whether any deficiencies are linked to special-interest politics or our council's actions or inactions.
