Perfection is not a matter of Andrew Morales' concern, though his record continues to assert otherwise. Coming off his only shaky outing of the season, and arguably his career, the UC Irvine senior right-hander provided a concise and commanding reminder of just how good he has been for the Anteaters on Friday night. His complete-game two-hitter helped the hosts defeat Grand Canyon, 2-0, in the first of a three-game nonconference series at Anteater Ballpark. Morales, who is 4-0 this season and 14-0 in his career at UCI after transferring from Rio Hondo Community College, where he was merely 21-1, struck out 10, induced nine groundouts and threw just 96 pitches to send the 467 in attendance home after just one hour, 49 minutes.

I will bet that 99% of those who read this have been to the Grand Canyon. I also suspect that the overwhelming majority of you have been to the South Rim, which gets 5 million visitors a year. The North Rim gets only a half a million visitors each year. This fall, after school started and the number of visitors theoretically declined, we wanted to take a Southwest road trip — one that would include both rims of the Grand Canyon. We had a lovely visit to the South Rim and even found a parking place among all the tour buses.

IRVINE — The UC Irvine women's soccer team earned its first win of the season Sunday, upsetting No. 21-ranked Auburn, 1-0, to improve to 1-3. Junior Mady Solow converted an assist from junior Natalia Ledezma in the 79th minute for the only tally in a defensive-dominated affair in which Auburn (2-2) managed no shots on goal. The Tigers equaled UCI's five shots, as UCI sophomore goalie Jennifer Randazzo earned her first shutout of the season. Ledezma found Solow open just outside the box and Solow hit a shot that glanced off the crossbar and into the cage for her first goal as an Anteater.

Young Chang Gil McCutchan braced himself for something phenomenal and epic as he sat on the train from Williams, Ariz., to the Grand Canyon last month. He had heard accounts of the natural landmark and seen postcards, but what the Newport Beach resident actually beheldrendered him in awe. "You wonder how in the world that was created," McCutchan said. "It was awesome, it was beautiful . . . You see pictures of it but you can't imagine the beauty."

Deepa Bharath When Paul Ohlsen did something, he went all out. Whether it was operating the ham radio or fishing or organizing family reunions, Paul devoted himself to the cause at hand. Paul's legacy to his family were the wonderful reunions he organized in Sioux Falls with the help of his cousins. He always regretted starting those "late," but he did them from 1992 to 2000. At least a dozen families came to the gatherings, which usually took place at a hotel.

I am not here. I am far away. I am in an airplane, about six miles above the earth, somewhere between the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. I know that because the pilot pointed out the Grand Canyon a few minutes ago and said we'd be over Las Vegas a few minutes from now. It's easy to find landmarks from the air. Whatever side of the plane you're on, all landmarks are on the other side. Doesn't matter what direction you're going. If you're on the left side, the great view of the Grand Canyon will be on the right side.

As hard as it is to believe, the year 2012 is now upon us. And I am only just now about ready to face the Y2K problem! But with the sobering understanding that time will continue to fly by, I now ask you: Knowing what you know now, if you could have given yourself some advice 10 years ago about how best to live your life, what would it have been? My answer would be to quote Col. Potter from an episode of "MASH:" "If you ain't where you're at, you're no place. " I would tell myself to try to make where I'm at to be as good a place as it can be. Every day. Taking this thought to heart, that means that even if you or I are sick, in jail, in a hard marital relationship, in a demanding or, even worse, boring job, or are a single parent with all the demands that situation can entail, each of us should bear in mind that there are literally millions of other people all around the world who would do virtually anything to be in our situation instead of theirs!

When picturing Orange County, one might think of beautiful beaches or luxury shopping, but few would picture limestone cliffs that are 30 million to 40 million years old. On Friday, OC Parks and the Irvine Ranch Conservancy unveiled a viewing deck in Limestone Canyon — not to be confused with Limestone Canyon & Whiting Ranch — so that visitors from a safe space can experience the natural wonders that some call a "mini Grand Canyon....
