Slowly and delicately, a crane lifted the M1902U.S. Armyfield gun off its grassy resting place in Costa Mesa on Monday morning. The artillery piece had been in front of the Costa Mesa Police Department substation on West 18th Street for some 40 years, but now, for the next six to eight weeks, it will be getting restored by 16-year-old Brenden Fettis, an aspiring Eagle Scout and son of a Costa Mesa police officer. Brenden chose the restoration as his Eagle Scout project and will get help from other Boy Scouts.

Christine Carrillo When studying American history, what better way to bring history lessons to life than to travel to where much of it has happened. For the past 17 years, eighth-graders at Our Lady Queen of Angels School in Newport Beach have traveled to Washington, D.C. The trip has become an excellent way to cap off the students' history lessons as well as their educational career at the school itself. "I really think that what I've enjoyed the most is that they were so into learning and asking questions," said Sister Joann Clare Gallagher, the school's co-principal, who has attended the trip every year.

It didn’t take Art and Mary Ellen Goddard long to connect to the historical pulse of Costa Mesa when they moved to the city in 1977 from the Midwest. “After we got settled into our house I would say the first thing Mary Ellen did was join the historical society,” Art Goddard said. Just a year later, in 1978, she conducted a series of 46 lengthy interviews with the city fathers and business and social leaders for the city’s 25th anniversary. The husband-and-wife team recently released a history, “Images of Early Costa Mesa,” published by Arcadia Publishing (a company known for the thousands of local history books it produces and puts on the shelves of retailers like Barnes & Noble and Borders throughout the country)

Barry Faulkner Today is the four-day anniversary of the victory which, for all but a fortunate few involved with this year's Newport Harbor High football team, will stand as the crowning achievement of their athletic career. Indeed, the best thing about earning the distinction of champion is that it lasts forever. A year from now, five years, 10, 25, 100 or 1,000, history will note the singular accomplishment achieved by Coach Jeff Brinkley's 13-0-1 Sailors this fall.

What a difference a year makes. Wednesday night at the annual mayor's dinner in Newport Beach, everything went swimmingly. Good to see my old friend Judge Steve Bromberg. Mayor Don Webb skipped the traditional "state of the city" address and opted for the 100-year history of Newport Beach. Actually, it was more like 125 years. The extra 25 years made a long program even longer. Despite the length, the mayor proved that he does know his stuff. The pre-speech over-under for falling asleep was at sometime in the mid-1940s.

I just attended a wonderful show in Maui. It is called "Uelena," and it is a story about the history of the Hawaiian Islands. One must pay for this historical and extravagant production that was produced with the help of the people that do Cirque du Soleil. The history of the Hawaiian Islands has the Europeans coming to this part of the Pacific Ocean and bringing disease, death and different social mores. The story has a positive conclusion showing the rich diversity and beauty the Hawaiian Islands now enjoy.

While wading through his personal archive of film footage, Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali came upon a snippet of the band horsing around offstage. On the soundtrack, lead singer Kevin DuBrow can be heard boasting, "This is gonna be in a Quiet Riot movie in the theaters someday. I don't know how far in the future. " That footage was shot in 1983, and the "someday" that DuBrow promised has finally arrived.

I just finished Frederic Morton's "Thunder at Twilight: Vienna 1913/1914. " The detail surrounding the many people involved in that slice of history building up to World War I is amazing. I knew that the death of Crown Prince Archduke Franz Ferdinand had led to the war, but this book, with its accounts of the activities of many countries' politicians and the culture of Vienna at the time, explains what was going on so well that you almost feel as though you are there, following the characters around.

It was the first football game with the words "Super Bowl" emblazoned on the cover of its printed program. That game today is known as Super Bowl III. The game took place Jan. 12, 1969, in Miami's Orange Bowl. The previous two years the game's official nomenclature was AFL-NFL World Championship Game. Founded in 1960, the upstart American Football League became a serious competitor to the time-honored National Football League, and proved so by signing 75% of the older league's first-round draft choices in its first year.

In his first several years as head or assistant coach of the Breakers, the girls had beaten Newport Harbor just one time.
