Hattie Marshall did not want the sun to set on her Newport Harbor High softball career before picking up her first Sunset League win. The numbers were staggeringly against Marshall, a senior pitcher and co-captain, and the Sailors coming into the 2013 season. They hadn't won a league game in six years, losing 52 in a row. 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. "It was kind of like relief in a way," she said.

Back in mid-May, Tyler Rios learned his Estancia High baseball team's fate depended on his right arm. This was a week before he even knew whom he was going to pitch against in the wild-card round of the CIF Southern Section Division 4 playoffs. Estancia relied on that same arm of Rios' before in a must-win situation. To keep their hopes of finishing second in the Orange Coast League alive, the Eagles needed to beat the same team twice in as many days. Rios got the first chance on the mound in the final week of the regular season.

Hoag Hospital's decision to stop performing elective abortions in the wake of its affiliation with a Catholic health-care group has sparked an outcry among women's rights advocates, who say the move diminishes access to high-quality reproductive care. Pro-choice advocates plan to protest outside the hospital at a rally next week, and eight Hoag-affiliated doctors recently penned a public letter registering their disapproval. Some donors to the Newport Beach hospital - typically seen as a top-tier facility in an upscale area - have threatened to withhold support.
