This will be the 22nd year in a row that I've observed Father's Day without my father. I was barely a teenager when he died, yet the memories are still painfully present. I can't help but feel a pang of sadness each year this day comes around and I am reminded once again that my dad isn't here for a card, a breakfast, a ballgame or even a hug. So, I know firsthand that holidays that bring joy to so many often bring sadness to others. Many of us struggle with the loss of our fathers or grandfathers, remembering the happy times together and lamenting their absence and simply missing their love, wisdom and presence.

"On the whole, God's love for us is a much safer subject to think about than our love for him. Nobody can always have devout feelings; and even if we could, feelings are not what God principally cares about. Christian love, either toward God or toward man, is an affair of the will. But the great thing to remember is that, though our feelings come and go, his love for us does not." -- C.S. LEWIS Apparently, it is time for another change in my life.

While Mother's Day can be a time for sentimental reflection and celebration, it also can unleash emotions that surround one of life's most complex relationships. Writers, medical professionals and psychologists provide help for sorting out such sentiments in new books on library shelves. For new mothers, Kate Figes surveys the difficult, exhilarating and traumatic feelings childbirth can unleash in "Life After Birth: What Even Your Friends Won't Tell You About Motherhood."

The special-needs students in Lynda Zussman’s Newport Harbor High School class naturally have more obstacles than most. They have mild learning disabilities and struggle sometimes to deal with their emotions. That is why Zussman finds it necessary to create a positive atmosphere and methods to better prepare them for life’s challenges. “Negative feelings are OK,” she tells her classroom. “It is part of growing up.” Zussman wanted to help her students in a way that offered practical lessons.

On Monday, State Sen. Roy Ashburn (R-Bakersfield), whose voting record has consistently gone against legislative measures that favor gay rights and are friendly to homosexuals, lesbians and transgender people, told a hometown radio station that he is gay. He came out while answering questions about his arrest for suspected DUI on March 3. It turned out that he had visited a gay bar in the hours leading up to his arrest, according to...

Mathis Winkler COSTA MESA -- When Peter Vash starts talking about the holidays, it's easy to think that the season of joy is the most depressing time of the year. "Frustration, disappointment, loneliness, time constraints -- these are all emotions associated with the holidays that cause people to feel lonely and depressed," Vash said. But Vash's views don't mean that he's trying to become a real-life Grinch. As a doctor at the Costa Mesa branch of Lindora Medical Clinics, which specialize in weight-loss programs, he's simply trying to raise awareness that overeating is a real danger for many people during the holidays.

Lolita Harper Welcome to Skaters Anonymous. His name is Jim Gray, and he's a skate-aholic. He is addicted to rolling. He can't get enough of the adrenaline that pumps through his body when he does a backside ollie 180. He needs the rush. Unlike other addicts, Gray doesn't want to boot his 17-year habit. Quite the contrary. The 39-year-old is making great strides to recruit other addicts -- or even those on the brink of dependency -- to lobby the city for a park that will support their practice.

"God never promised you a Disneyland. He offers something better -- His own sustaining presence through any trouble you may encounter." -- Charles R. Swindoll I've heard from several readers about last week's column. For those of you who didn't read it, it was about the fact that as we travel through life, we will encounter painful low points, as well as joyful highlights. It's great to have people to share those times with, but in any case, God will always be there with us. One reader wrote about the personal pain in her life and said that though she believes in God, she has had many sad things happen to her. After reading her e-mail, I agree that she has had more than her share of bad situations happen.

MAXINE COHEN I was horrified when I read about the 17-year-old senior at Corona del Mar high school who committed suicide. How very, very sad. It is truly a tragedy when such a young person takes her own life. She had barely begun to live, and her life is now over. Her parents live on but they will grieve in the depths of a despair that most of us will never know -- thank goodness -- in our own lifetimes. Then there are siblings, teachers, friends and relatives, whose lives have been irretrievably touched.

Editor’s Note: This is the fifth in a six-part series about war veterans who are members of UC Irvine’s Veterans Student Union .   Expecting to see family and friends soon, a unit of soldiers takes a break in front of a Post Exchange in an Iraqi base. But not all of them make it home. Mortar fire is common in Iraq. It’s random, the targeting is frantic, and most soldiers learn to live with it as an everyday occurrence. The blasts usually inflict more panic than harm.

Just so her teachers know, a dog didn't eat Claire Novotny's homework. But in the event that the Sage Hill School sophomore comes up a little short in the classroom on Thursday, some would suggest she has an iron-clad alibi. Novotny fired in a booming shot from 31 yards out into the upper corner of the net to lift the Lightning girls' soccer team to a 1-0 overtime victory over visiting Paloma Valley in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 5 playoffs on Wednesday.

For any social group, with age often comes prestige. At the Newport Harbor Yacht Club - the oldest yacht club in Newport Beach - it also brings a crumbling building. For at least a decade, a club committee has tried to find a way to address the issues that arise with a facility that is about as old as the 98-year-old club itself. The proposed solution is to replace it with a new structure - one that looks nearly the same but larger. Although club members have yet to vote on the plan, it has been passed on to the city's Planning Commission, which gave its approval Thursday.

Ask any random group of patrons of the Orange County theater world, and they can probably tell you that Hal Landon Jr. has played Ebenezer Scrooge in South Coast Repertory's "A Christmas Carol" for the last 34 years. What they may not know is that Landon isn't the only person who's stayed with the annual holiday production since 1980. While the actor has traced Scrooge's metamorphosis from gruff curmudgeon to bringer of cheer, the same director, John-David Keller, has guided him from the wings each time.

For the first time in 10 years, I got on a bicycle yesterday. It took a good 10 minutes to retrain myself how to ride without falling over, but when I took off, it felt like absolute freedom. The wind hit my face and I stopped pedaling as my downhill speed increased. There were no cars, no distractions, not a sound in the distance except the wheels of my bicycle. It was a moment of peace I wish I could have held onto forever. Of course, it probably helped that I did this in Alaska.

The Estancia High football team lost several key players and a top assistant in the off-season. Most of the players graduated and one moved out of town. As for the assistant, Coach Mike Bargas said, he just grew tired of coaching and he dealt with medical issues. He doesn't blame the assistant for not coming back to the Eagles. The assistant is the same man who gave Bargas sound advice six years ago. He told Bargas that it was time for Bargas to become a head coach. That man was Dave Holland.

Shortly after 9/11, Dr. Ron Gilbert penned a letter to his sons advising them to live honorable and meaningful lives. "Try not to be bitter about the many unfortunate things that may happen to you in your life," he wrote. "Your response to difficult situations will in large part define you as a person. " Less than 12 years later, those words were read again - at Gilbert's funeral and on what would have been his 53rd birthday. Gilbert, 52, was shot to death Jan. 28 in his urology office near Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach.

Half a dozen visually impaired teenagers and a group of guides listened in silence in the middle of a tight trail at Crystal Cove State Park. Some cupped their ears or turned their heads to hear the different bird calls they were trying to count. "I got 10," said Nick Avalos, 16. He and his classmates from the Braille Institute in Los Angeles were at Moro Canyon in Laguna Beach on Thursday. There they participated in a pilot project of sorts with Crystal Cove Alliance, a nonprofit partner of the state park.

"Be kind to your web-footed friends, for a duck may be somebody's mother. " I haven't been able to get that old ditty, sung to the melody of "Stars and Stripes Forever," out of my head. I've been stuck on ducks since driving home along Jamboree Road one day last week and glimpsing a family of them, one adult accompanied by several tiny ducklings, waddling heedlessly along the sidewalk as cars whizzed by on the busy thoroughfare. After I got home I continued to worry about the ducks' dangerous excursion.

IRVINE - There was barely a cloud in the sky Saturday at Anteater Ballpark, but still plenty of silver linings in a 5-0 nonconference baseball win that continued a feel-good, season-opening series against visiting Baylor. Junior left-hander pitcher Matt Whitehouse, who was shut down early and later took a medical redshirt season in 2012, allowed two hits in 6 1/3 innings to earn his first victory in nearly two years. Junior Kyle Hooper, another pitcher who was shut down due to arm trouble and took his own medical redshirt season in 2012, finished off the shutout to help the Anteaters (2-0)
