Steve Virgen For the past five seasons, UC Irvine did not know anything about a win in the Big West Conference Tournament. It had been one and done. That is until Wendy Gabbe's senior season came along. Gabbe, UCI's lone senior who overcame pain in her right (shooting) shoulder, scored a team-high 18 points and led the Anteaters' women's basketball team to a 65-60 quarterfinal victory over Idaho in the Big West Tournament at the Anaheim Convention Center Wednesday night.

Do you have a lot of people to gift this holiday season? And, if so, are any of them people who might prick up their ears at the previous sentence's use of the word "gift" or this sentence's use of "prick"? Then do I have some good news for you: Today, for the first time ever, I'm publishing the A Word, Please Holiday Grammar Gift Guide for the word nerds, grammar geeks and even the linguistically challenged recipients on your list. "'Gift,' it may be surprising to learn, has acted as a verb since the 16th century," writes Bryan Garner in "Garner's Modern American Usage."

Tariq Malik NEWPORT BEACH -- It was a good hunt Sunday for the fathers and sons who took kayaks and canoes out into the Back Bay in search of trash. About 150 members of Dolphin Nation, a collection of the YMCA's 10 Indian Guide tribes across the Newport-Mesa area, helped pick up trash and other debris as part of the group's third annual cleanup. "We're just glad to be here in order to raise awareness in our kids and teach them about the importance of keeping the bay clean," said Dan Hayes, the nation's Chief of Chiefs.

Cindy Trane Christeson "The heavens tell of the glory of God, the skies display his marvelous craftsmanship." -- Psalm 19:1 For the past month I've written about our trip to the Middle East. The night before we flew home to California, we listed what we referred to as five-star, exceptional experiences. Within minutes, we came up with 15 different ones, and you have read about some of them. As you know, the main purpose of our trip was to work with a wonderful church in Cairo.

Jeff Benson Newport Harbor High School student Kevin Veitch said he never envisioned that schooling would mean he'd be feeding 30 massive bluefin and yellowfin tuna circling below him. We're talking shrimp -- the good stuff -- and not served in brown bag lunches, either. The incoming senior jumped on the opportunity, however, to volunteer as a tour guide at Monterey Bay Aquarium in the Bay Area. Kevin, 17, spent a month showing groups around the facilities and teaching people about many of the aquarium's 550 species of marine life.

Marisa O'Neil South Coast Repertory Theatre took the show on the road to Newport-Mesa schools this week. The performers brought "The Pride of Weedpatch Camp," which tells the story of an Oklahoma family looking for work in California during the Great Depression, to students at Newport Heights Elementary School on Friday. Members of the Schmidt family, including 9-year-old Deenie -- played by Megan Goodchild -- faced poverty and discrimination in the play when they moved out West to escape the Dust Bowl.

A recent survey by the Pew Forum and Congressional Quarterly showed that members of Congress are much more likely than the overall public to claim to belong to a religion. Only five members of the new Congress declined to give details on their religious affiliation, but it wasn?t certain whether they were atheist or agnostic. It could be largely political as a USA Today/Gallup poll in early 2007 showed it would be harder for an atheist to be elected president, as only 45% would support a non-believer candidate, compared with 55% who would vote for someone who is gay or the 88% who would support a woman.

It takes 40 days to cultivate a consciousness that can realize a truth. That’s why I adapted “The 40-Day Prosperity Plan” by John Randolph Price. In Price’s approach he introduces 10 statements about the nature of a prosperous consciousness and invites you to take 15 minutes to contemplate one statement each day. For example the first statement is, “God is lavish, unfailing abundance, the rich omnipresent substance of the universe. This all-providing source of infinite prosperity is individualized as me — the reality of me.” This is more than positive thinking; it is constructive thinking.

Christine Carrillo Anyone up for gorilla trekking in Uganda? Well, four avid travelers from Corona del Mar and Newport Beach certainly were. Sylvia Burnette, Ev Parrella, Gayle Jones and Theodora "Teddy" Pike couldn't resist the offer to travel to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest with armed guards by their side and guides with machetes hacking paths for them through the dense vegetation in the hopes of seeing a black gorilla up close. In fact, that was their primary worry -- that they wouldn't get to see the gorilla that they traveled to an entirely different continent to find.

Deepa Bharath Suzanne Lindsey took her last breath traveling. To those who knew Suzanne, it made sense. Her collection of itineraries was like a map of the world. To them, it was easier to list the number of countries Suzanne had not visited. And when she went to a country, she didn't stick with tourist groups or chatty tour guides. Suzanne was an explorer with an innate curiosity and a passion to absorb everything she wanted to absorb. She brought home mementos from her travels -- many, many figurines and more than a few ceremonial tribal costumes.

Kevin Emerson's first stint with the Orange Coast College football program was short and uneventful. But the former coach at Citrus and San Bernardino Valley community colleges, announced as the seventh coach in OCC's 66-year football history on Monday, is hoping for a much more meaningful association with the Pirates this time around. Emerson, chosen from more than 80 applicants, replaces Mike Taylor, who will be the Pirates' defensive coordinator after 15 seasons at the helm. Taylor was 62-91 to produce the worst winning percentage (.405)

Q: I know the economy is supposed to be getting better, but it sure hasn't helped me find a job. Part of the problem is that I'm in my 50s now, and no one wants to hire people my age. Why won't God help me? I feel so useless. — F.B. A: The most important thing I can tell you is that you are not useless — not in God's eyes. He cares about you and knows all about your situation, and he wants to help you. You can trust his promise: "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5)

Valentine's Day is the holiday that plays a big role in dating and relationships. Whether you have just started dating or have been dating someone for months, this holiday has the ability to either speed up or slow down the relationship. Women are typically more excited about Valentine's Day because, well let's face it, they have it easy. They are the receivers. Men don't always look forward to Valentine's Day because they are considered the givers, and that puts pressure on them to plan and execute the perfect amount of celebration for the current stage of the relationship.

As a Costa Mesa High player, Mike Molina won the Battle for the Bell boys' basketball rivalry three times in four seasons. He can now say he has led the Mustangs past their cross-town nemesis as their head coach. Beating Estancia as a player and a coach is all the same to Molina, it means a lot. He grew up in Costa Mesa, playing basketball since he was 6 years old. Seventeen years later, in his debut season in charge, Molina's Mustangs showed they are the city's best team after thumping host Estancia, 68-52, in an Orange Coast League game on Wednesday night.

It was one of the most meaningful experiences of my youth. Between the ages of 10 and 13, I served as an acolyte at my church, and it was a duty I relished. I turned 8 in 1953, and my family began attending Newport Harbor Lutheran Church on Cliff Drive, overlooking Newport Bay. I loved everything about the church: its location, its spectacular view, its formal liturgy and its informal culture. My family became active, and within a matter of months we knew every other family in the church.

It's difficult to call it a silver lining, but in the aftermath of one of his Orange Coast College women's basketball team's worst performances in his 25 seasons, Coach Mike Thornton's first postgame task was delivering praise. "He told me how well-coached we are and how much energy we have and how he loves how hard our kids play," said Palomar coach and former OCC player and assistant coach Leigh Marshall, whose Comets dropped an 85-47 drubbing on the Pirates in the consolation semifinals of the Erin Tomlinson Coast Christmas Classic on Thursday at OCC. "I'm proud of what Leigh has done with that program and with that team," said Thornton, whose squad was outdone in every category, including those not on the stat sheet.

George Kuntz, who guided the UC Irvine men's soccer program to the NCAA Tournament four of the last six years, winning four Big West Conference regular-season and four conference tournament titles in the process, announced Monday he had accepted the same job at Cal State Fullerton. Chris Volk, Kuntz's lead assistant and goalkeeper coach the last 17 seasons who was named the Far West Region Assistant Coach of the Year in 2008, has expressed interest in the UCI head-coaching job, a source close to the program confirmed Tuesday.

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.

A magician never reveals his secrets. He can't. If he does, it will be plain for all to see that he has no magic at all. A grammar columnist reveals her secrets every week, again and again. Yet for some reason people still think she's privy to some mysterious power that no one else can harness. Take, for example, the woman who contacted me on Twitter some months ago to ask about the proper usage of the word "apropos. " When faced with the utterly hopeless quest of finding the answer, she sought out and consulted an oracle of sorts - someone she thought capable of pulling back the curtain on this baffling mystery.

When a guest at the Westin South Coast Plaza pulled open the curtains Monday morning, a 96-foot Christmas tree floated past the window. The South Coast Plaza holiday tree had arrived at the Town Center Park on Anton Boulevard in Costa Mesa after a journey of more than 600 miles. A dozen workers from the tree company helped to guide the 20,000-pound white fir, suspended from a 235-ton crane, toward an awaiting 10-foot hole. Several South Coast Plaza employees were also on hand.
