Probably more than any other instrument in an orchestra, the tuba has the sound of authority - big, brassy, deep and imposing. For the young, struggling John Van Houten, that sound inspired the discipline he needed. The tuba instructor, who began teaching last fall at Concordia University in Irvine, took up the instrument in his early teens and soon found that his overall performance in school increased with his musical proficiency. Over the ensuing decades, Van Houten went on to play for film and television (he counts "The Simpsons" and "The Incredibles" among his credits)

Hattie Marshall did not want the sun to set on her Newport Harbor High softball career before picking up her first Sunset League win.

It reached 53 straight league losses before the Sailors played host to Fountain Valley on April 11. The resulting 6-5 victory sent a wide range of emotions through Marshall, who pitched the complete game and went two for three with three runs batted in.
