When he takes the field with the USC football team in the 94th Rose Bowl today at 2:10 p.m., Michael McDonald will be finishing what he started. The Newport Harbor High product might not have gotten this far, however, if not for some soul searching after two uneventful seasons as a walk-on with the Trojans in 2003 and 2004. After redshirting the 2003 season, McDonald saw no playing time in 2004 and quit the team. The coaching staff, however, talked him into returning for spring practice in 2005, but, seeing little progress on the depth chart, he quit once again.

In the Coast Guard, they call it “getting underway,” embarking on week-long ocean voyages once a month on which crew members float on call, awaiting dispatch to any emergencies that may occur in their vicinity. For Orange Coast College defensive end Dean DeLeone, it was less than his favorite part of his four-year enlistment, during which he was stationed out of Newport Harbor. But between standing watch in the engine room and his other assignments, his weeks at sea gave him time to think.

Deirdre Newman Claudia Lipari started bowling at Kona Lanes when she was 7. Within the last year, she had been bringing her son to the Tiki-themed bowling alley that has been a Costa Mesa landmark since the 1950s. On Wednesday, instead of trying to knock pins down, Lipari was helping tear the place down. The bowling alley closed its doors for good Sunday and has been selling off mementos such as pins and balls ever since. Next week at the alley, owner Jack Mann will take offers for the larger pieces of equipment.

Henry Segerstrom rarely makes public appearances. But he made an exception Thursday at South Coast Plaza, clad in a dapper blue pinstriped suit and a matching polka dot tie and seeming a tad bashful at all the attention. The entrepreneur and philanthropist, who at 90 is also the managing partner of C.J. Segerstrom & Sons, was the guest of honor at a book launch by luxury book publisher Assouline. He was joined at the 6 p.m. event by family, including his wife, Elizabeth, son Anton and daughter-in-law Jennifer, as well as well-wishers like Debra Gunn Downing, the plaza's executive director of marketing, members of the An family of AnQi by Crustacean, and others.

BALBOA PENINSULA — When Sheila McNichols' grandparents bought the charming beach cottage at 1920 Court Ave., it cost them $1,111 — and that was with $11 thrown in for the furnishings, which included a piano. That was around 1930. McNichols thinks the house was built in 1905, and today it is one of the oldest homes in Newport Beach — slightly older than the city itself. City officials honored McNichols' house Sept. 1 when they celebrated the city's 100th birthday.

Alvin Gregorio, artist in residence at the Shed, has left his mark on the studio. But his time there ends Saturday, when he'll host a reception.The mellow tunes of songwriter Jack Johnson and the urban beats of rapper Jay-Z provided the soundtrack to Alvin Gregorio's temporary Cannery Village studio on a recent weekday morning. The eclecticism of his playlist is fitting, perhaps, because Gregorio is an artist who brings disparate elements into his work. A character from a children's book might share space in a drawing with an exotic animal or a human subject with a scornful expression.
