They capped it off Sunday at the Costa Mesa Farm Complex, winning their second straight gold division title over Kaiser, 4-0. Coach Dave Scott’s club outscored opponents, 19-0, in five tournament games.

The dolphin topiaries that have become Corona del Mar's center-of-town mascots are overgrown and shaggy and need professional help, the Corona del Mar Business Improvement District's board members decided Thursday morning. "Are they anchors? Are they bombs? Are they manatees?" said C. Scott Palmer. "They just don't look like dolphins. I would like the B.I.D. to hire an expert to take them back to a dolphin-ary shape. " The dolphin topiaries, which are placed in the median of East Coast Highway and Marguerite Avenue, were planted in 1993.

In all due respect to Dennis Kelly, the marine mammal expert, I think he needs to lighten up a little ("Dolphins nose about bay," Aug. 12). We know he has studied dolphin behavior for a long time and is very credible. However, we all know that the dolphins are highly-intelligent creatures, and if they didn't want to interact, they would certainly find their way out the way they did in. We know dolphins can locate food from miles and miles away, and certainly if they can catch the schools of fish in the vast ocean from where they came, they can catch that school of fish in the Back Bay, even if the electric boat scared that one school.

COSTA MESA ? As the final whistle blew, Dave Scott stormed onto the field and hugged many of the girls on his team. If he could, he would have scooped them all up at the same time. He said the moment was touching for him. It was elation, celebration and fascination all rolled into one. For the fifth straight year, the Daily Pilot Cup Gold Division championship was wonb by the third- and fourth-grade girls of Andersen Elementary. This one had some special meaning for Scott, the coach whose Silver Division team lost in the title game last year.

Driving down Coast Highway in Newport Beach, travelers know they have reached Corona del Mar when they pass by a pod of topiary dolphins - or are they manatees? The iconic plant sculptures have grown past the point of remedy, their sleek shapes no longer as clear as they once were, explained Corona del Mar Business Improvement District Chairman Bernie Svalstad. Leaf-trimming couldn't save the creatures; no specialty pruner could be found. So the city has stepped up to replace them.

In Japan, the annual slaughter of dolphins, porpoises and small whales continues. Starting Sept. 1, and usually continuing through March, fishermen herd whole families of small cetaceans into a shallow bay and mercilessly stab and drown them to death. This annual slaughter was virtually unknown until 2003, when members of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, mainly known for the show "Whale Wars," released covertly obtained film and photographs of the now-infamous bloody cove in a village called Taiji.
