Don Cantrell Time was when harbor area boys were drawn to the football jersey number 33 and looked forward to meeting and cheering Slingin' Sammy Baugh of the Washington Redskins at what is now called Eddie West Stadium in Santa Ana. In the '40s, Redskins management wanted to bolster fan support on the West Coast. It finally surveyed Southern California and selected the old Santa Ana Bowl as a site for its annual intrasquad game. Harbor area kids could grab the old county blue bus for a dime each and make the grand ride to Santa Ana. The evening games were scheduled at a proper time.

The start of the 10th annual Boys & Girls Club of the Harbor Area Westside branch golf tournament was anything but ordinary. About 50 golfers formed a circle just past the ladies tees on the first hole of Costa Mesa Country Club's Los Lagos course Monday. The goal was to toss a golf ball into a hole cut into the grass. The bouncing and rolling white balls reminded me of large hail stones from the fiercest of storms. The golf ball toss was a fun lead-in to the real work of the day: playing golf, cracking jokes and laughing.

If the Pope asked me to nominate just one candidate for sainthood from our community, my answer would be easy: Harlan Andersen. If you don't know him, then you probably didn't grow up in the Newport-Mesa area — or have children. For nearly 40 years, Harlan has worked at the various branches of the Boys & Girls Club of the Harbor Area, serving as the ultimate role model — kind, gentle, understanding, patient and funny — for thousands of kids each year. I've watched Harlan humbly go about his job for 17 years now as my four sons played basketball at the Lou Yantorn Branch in Eastside Costa Mesa.
