Those who came to know the Pentecostal evangelist Oral Roberts, after he retired to a vacation home overlooking the 10th tee at Newport Beach Country Club, remembered him more as a gracious friend than fiery faith healer. One of the 20th century’s most influential and controversial religious leaders, Roberts died Tuesday at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian of complications from pneumonia, a spokeswoman for his family said. He was 91. Tom Thorkelson, the Orange County director of interfaith relations for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, became good friends with Roberts after they met at a car wash in Newport Beach in 1992.

With so many friends and family members attending his memorial Friday, countless stories could have been told about Clinton “C.J.” Joseph Hubbard being there for those he loved. But on a gray, drizzly afternoon at San Francisco Solano Catholic Church in Rancho Santa Margarita, Hubbard’s friends and family had to be there for each other. More than 500 in all, they laughingly and tearfully remembered the 27-year-old Corona del Mar resident. He died Nov. 27, a day after a blood vessel inside his brain burst after he was allegedly punched in the head outside a Newport Beach nightclub early Thanksgiving morning.

Perfection repeats itself in the Bergquist family. Forty years ago, Dwight Bergquist, then 17 and attending high school in Connecticut, achieved a perfect score on the mathematics portion of the SAT. His son Taylor, 17, a senior at Newport Harbor High School, recently found out that he too had scored a perfect 800 on the SAT’s math section. The news that the father-and-son combination had pulled off a double 800 spanning four decades shocked both generations of math whizzes.

Pai Chou, a computer engineering professor at UC Irvine, is on the verge of planting sensors on water and waste pipes around Newport Beach. The end product of his research could change the way local agencies identify breaks, blockages and leaks in their pipes and help them respond to problems before they become catastrophes. Chou has chosen an area between the Upper Newport Bay and Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian for his study. After working through some logistics with the Orange County Sanitation District, he and his partners will attach devices to the pipes that measure vibrations.

Where were you July 20, 1969? I was in a summer school science class in Northern California when America landed on the moon. The science teacher was out of his mind with excitement. He brought in a television set (which was a big deal in 1969, to have a TV in the classroom) and for a few days all we did was watch the reports coming in on the lunar landing. The biology curriculum took a back seat. I remember it well because at the time, as a teenager, I was more wrapped up in issues including civil rights and the environment and I did not appreciate the magnificence of the occasion or fully comprehend its ramifications.
