Assemblyman and senatorial candidate Chuck DeVore and his new-media partner in crime are at it again. Remember last week when we told you about DeVore’s YouTube video “After the Hope of November is Gone,” a send-up of President Obama sang to the tune of Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer?” Well, it turns out that Henley didn’t exactly want to bookmark that or add DeVore to his favorite YouTube channels. In fact, he asked YouTube to pull it for “trademark infringement.

It seemed like a simple question posed to a 10-year-old. But Austin Di Giulio didn’t give me a typical answer. Austin is the younger brother of a tennis star in the making, Joseph Di Giulio. And so I asked, “Is there any pressure, being Joseph’s younger brother?” “I want to be better,” said Austin, who lives in Newport Beach. “I feel like I can play better because he can teach me how to do things and I can hit with him.” Austin is showing he has just as much talent and potential as his older brother had at such a young age. Austin, the second of three Di Giulio brothers, won the Little Mo International Tournament Dec. 19 in Port St. Lucie, Fla. The tournament is named after Maureen Connolly, the tennis star from San Diego in the 1950s.

Cecil Whiteside knew the novice had worn off discus throwing when he encountered his first slump as a freshman last season. Then, he said, it became just like any other sport. But Newport Harbor High’s leading thrower isn’t like many other discus competitors. Whiteside set a personal record Saturday at the Trabuco Hills Invitational when he hit 175 feet, nine inches to take first place. He’ll be competing this afternoon at the Arcadia Invitational. Since the beginning of the season, Whiteside has been adding feet at a torrid pace.

The on-again, off-again courtship of recent Corona del Mar High graduate Joe Eberhard by the UC Irvine men’s basketball program accelerated greatly Tuesday, when Anteaters coaches offered him a scholarship that he quickly accepted. Eberhard, a second-team All-CIF Southern Section Division III-A performer as a senior at CdM last season, has been admitted to the school, a reversal from a previous denial, he said. “I can’t ask for much more than what has happened,” said Eberhard, a 6-foot-6 small forward who averaged 15.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals last season.

This past week we said goodbye to two top educators and welcomed a new one. Sadly, in Ken Yglesias’ case, his resignation as the Coast Community College District chancellor came as he was under the cloud of a cryptic investigation. Yglesias had been under fire for months as district officials investigated unspecified allegations against him, but he agreed to a settlement that allowed him to retire June 30 and receive his usual salary of $20,250 a month without acting as chancellor.

In some ways, Curren Salvati is your typical Spider Man-loving little boy. He’s sweet, likes to swim and is protective of his baby sister, Ava. In other ways, Curren isn’t typical at all, and his Costa Mesa family faces many tough years ahead working to keep him in decent health. Curren, 6, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a terminal disease that will most likely put him in a wheelchair before he’s a teenager. Most people with Duchenne don’t live past 25. Curren’s family is hosting a charity golf tournament this afternoon, with proceeds going to Curren’s family to help pay for medical costs that will continue to rise as Curren’s illness progresses.

Dan Guth is a popular guy around Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., an insurance brokerage in south Orange County. His boss said he’s known for his smile, sense of humor and bringing a contagious energy into the office. One of the reasons he’s well-liked, Guth believes, is because of his second job and all the interesting stories he can bring into work on Monday mornings. It’s that second job, as a Costa Mesa police reserve officer, that also brought Guth to Costa Mesa Fire Station No. 5 Friday morning.

Opponents who face Ryan Peyton better watch for the “R.P. Effect.” But even if they know it’s coming, it’s hard to stop. Peyton’s teammates on the Corona del Mar High boys’ tennis team coined the phrase for the senior’s ability to hit every ball, allowing him to stay in a match while never showing any signs of quitting. On the contrary, the CdM No. 1 singles player continually attacks. He also tends to get on his opponents’ nerves with his aggressiveness.
