Deepa Bharath The human brain is as delicate as a glob of jiggling Jell-O in a jar. That was a slimy piece of information to swallow for fifth- and sixth-grade students at Davis Elementary School who heard Costa Mesa police officers talk about the dangers of getting on a bicycle without a helmet. The informational session on Friday morning was the last of the Police Department's Bicycle Safety Program lectures targeting fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students.

Danette Goulet COSTA MESA -- Just one day before school let out for the summer, another Newport-Mesa school was the scene of a traffic accident. This time, a fifth-grade boy was injured. As the 11-year-old was riding his bike to school just before 8 a.m. Wednesday, he was struck by a car exiting Costa Mesa High School. The boy, who the Daily Pilot has declined to identify, suffered a fractured left elbow and some scrapes and bruises on his shoulder, but was otherwise unharmed, said Sgt. Don Holford of the Costa Mesa Police Department.

COSTA MESA — Eight weeks ago, Nathalie Ayapantecatl struggled — along with about half of her peers — to run just one lap without stopping. It took hard work, but now the 8-year-old can run several laps. And after eight weeks of after-school activities that revolved around getting fit, Nathalie was one of 28 third-grade students at Whittier Elementary School who graduated Friday afternoon from the Newport-Mesa Family YMCA's Earn A Bike program. Each graduate walked away with a new beach cruiser bike, helmet and lock.

When's the last time you went shopping for children's clothing, specifically sports clothing? I just spent nearly $300 at Sport Chalet so that my 9-year-old son could play baseball. And that's with a discount from his coach's company, which is helping to cover the costs. Here's what $300 got me: pants, socks, belt, undershirt, cap, helmet, helmet guard, fielding glove, batting gloves, bat, cleats and an athletic supporter. Now I don't mind getting my son stuff that he needs.

On July 25, the publicity over the huge waves at the Wedge convinced me that I had to go see them in person. Anticipating a large crowd, I decided to ride my bicycle instead of drive. That was a very good idea. The traffic was horrible. Cars were lined up bumper-to-bumper for miles with no remedy in sight. Since then, the city of Newport Beach has wisely decided to review the parking issue on the peninsula, which is bad most summer weekends, not just when the Wedge is acting up. My two suggestions to this problem are to consider a park-and-ride agreement with a local parking structure (there are two structures that come immediately to mind)

"We have been in God's thought from all eternity, and in His creative love, His attention never leaves us." -- Michael Quoist Last week, I wrote about my little fall while mountain biking for a purpose with great people. It was a fund-raiser called "Go the Distance," and the proceeds purchase bicycles for Sudanese and Ethiopian pastors. The event organizer, Jose O'Neill, said that these pastors spend hours, or even days, walking to preach in different churches.

Greg Risling NEWPORT BEACH -- A 33-year-old woman died Wednesday night, two days after she had crashed skating down a steep hill without a helmet. Karen Udell of Newport Beach suffered major head injuries from a fall she took Monday afternoon at the intersection of Jamboree Road and Bayside Drive. Udell succumbed to her injuries shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday at Western Medical Center in Santa Ana. Udell was reportedly a good in-line skater and was out alone for an afternoon of exercise when the accident happened at the bottom of the steep hill that connects East Coast Highway and Balboa Island.

Friends and family of a Huntington Beach motorcyclist killed in a Costa Mesa crash over the weekend remembered him as fun, generous and passionate about riding at a Monday evening vigil. Chad deLorm, 40, was pronounced dead at the scene following a collision at 3:43 p.m. Sunday, near the Mesa Verde Shopping Center, authorities said. He was heading east on Adams Avenue, just past Royal Palm Drive, when a woman in a 2005 Honda Civic turned left in front of him near the driveway of the Souplantation, Costa Mesa police Lt. Greg Scott said in a news release.

Ernie Johnson used many motivational speeches when he coached the Newport Harbor High football team in 1970. Motivation was sorely needed. There hadn't been anything to really cheer about for 28 years. One of the speeches that seemed to stick out for many during that season was when he reminded the Sailors how the opponent felt about Newport Harbor. To paraphrase, Johnson said the other players were thinking they weren't about to be beat by some "beach (expletive). " The nickname fired up the Sailors during their championship season.

Everything looks in place for Jason Hitchens at Corona del Mar High. The new football coach has a refurbished office with a little widescreen TV above his desk, part of the new cabinetry, and he likes the field house. “They kind of redid the whole field house,” said Hitchens, referring to the CdM booster club. “We closed off the weight room and that’s now a team room. What we did was we put the wall back up and we extended out. We put canopies out in the back area and moved the weight room.

Like most football teams around this time, Costa Mesa High doesn’t have its helmet decals. Coaches usually wait until the season nears, so players earn them by making the team. At Costa Mesa last season, the Mustangs ran without their Mustang on the helmet. It didn’t hurt much. They became Orange Coast League co-champions and made the playoffs in Coach Jeremy Osso’s second year. “We didn’t have decals because [Southern Methodist University]

It does not appear a construction worker was seriously injured after falling down a one- to two-story deep hole in a Newport Beach shopping center, state officials said Tuesday. A construction worker for Largo Concrete Inc. was working on a cement wall for Fashion Island’s new 85,000-square-foot structure near the Atrium Court on Monday when he fell between 20 and 25 feet, Newport Beach fire officials said. The man, whom construction workers declined to identify, was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, but it doesn’t appear he was admitted for any visible injuries, said Kate McGuire, a spokeswoman for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health.

Newport Beach firefighters will trade in helmets and hoses for hats and aprons next week when they serve restaurant patrons classic 1940s meals at the Ruby’s Diner restaurant in Corona del Mar to raise money for cancer research.

From 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday firefighters will help serve Ruby’s customers with 20% of the food sales going to the department’s Relay for Life if customers bring in a flier.
