Michelle Tolfa could feel the change in her feet. Standing barefoot on Corona del Mar High's outfield grass is no longer a painful proposition. Last season, just the sight of the 14-year old softball facility hurt, let alone standing on the "prickly" grass. Even sitting in the stands ? with only a 12-foot backstop fence to protect fans ? was risky. Everybody involved with the softball program knew the field needed to be fixed. The problems didn't stop there. The distance from home plate to the backstop and foul line to dugout did not meet CIF Southern Section regulations.

Deepa Bharath The Toshiba Senior Classic is truly an international golf tournament, featuring 23 players from eight different countries. Most of these golfers travel year-round from one country to another constantly jumping wavelengths and getting in tune with a different culture, language and cuisine. At this year's tournament, players come from Argentina, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, Canada, Ireland, Australia and South Africa. For the most part, these players enjoy the diversity travel offers and often learn from it. At least for Gary Player of South Africa and Vicente Fernandez of Argentina -- both regulars at Toshiba -- the world is their classroom.

Well, at the risk of making an atrocious pun...it's apparently made an impression. Since 2010, the Irvine Museum's exhibit "California Impressionism: Selections from The Irvine Museum," has toured the country and made stops in California, Washington, Oregon and Florida. Saturday, the exhibit will make its homecoming at the museum at 18881 Von Karman Ave. and remain on display through Jan. 9. Among the artists featured in the show are Franz A. Bischoff, Paul Lauritz, Alfred R. Mitchell, Guy Rose, George Gardner Symons and William Wendt.

After watching the foreclosed home down the street slowly devolve into a state of dilapidation, Mary Dinius said she was forced to take matters into her own hands. Sick of the untrimmed landscaping, dirty pool and overgrown grass blighting her street, the Mesa North resident paid her gardener an extra $40 to mow her former neighbor’s lawn on Cheyenne Street. “I don’t have a lawn mower, but if I had one, I would’ve taken it over there and done it myself,” she said.

Among the top concerns when it comes the quality of life in Costa Mesa neighborhoods are the negative impacts created by operators and residents of some group homes. Excessive noise, traffic, large meetings and smoking are among the complaints received regularly by the city from neighbors. At least 115 group homes operate in Costa Mesa residential neighborhoods. The state has licensed 37 of these to provide treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. (Treatment is defined as conducting group meetings, planning recovery or treatment options, providing detoxification services or administering medication.)

Back from combat in Afghanistan and having just landed at John Wayne Airport after a flight from North Carolina, U.S. Marine Andy Krikorian struggled to stay awake while his dad drove him to their Costa Mesa home. It was late Friday, about 10 p.m., when the Krikorians turned onto Presidio Drive from Newport Boulevard to get to their home on Coronado Drive. The flight had been delayed about an hour. That didn't matter. Everyone waiting for the 27-year-old that night would've waited no matter how long it took.

Clay Tucker is back home, happy to be in Newport Beach. It's where he grew up. It's where he fell in love with the game of football. And now he's helping spread that love. Tucker, the son of the great Orange Coast College football coach Dick Tucker, has formed a flag football league in Newport Beach. He's also helping start another one in Costa Mesa. Clay Tucker played quarterback at Corona del Mar High and then for his dad at OCC. Before that, while growing up and playing on fields in Newport Beach, he also learned about the game in Costa Mesa, at OCC to be exact.

IRVINE - Without a home victory in three previous Big West Conference games this season and only two wins over Division I programs in the Bren Events Center, the UC Irvine student rooting section can be forgiven for lacking the inspiration and, perhaps, the opportunity to storm the court following Saturday's 65-57 triumph over conference rival UC Riverside. So, after earning their first Big West Conference home win in a little more than 11 months, Anteaters players took it upon themselves to storm the crowd.

Costa Mesa High softball coach Nichole Maddox didn't have to reach far into the recesses of her memory to talk about the Mustangs' recent history in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. "I'll never forget it," the Mustangs' second-year coach said of last season's 1-0 loss to San Marino in 10 innings. The game's only run scored on an error. The Mustangs are hoping to make more positive memories in Tuesday's Division V wild-card matchup with visiting Immaculate Heart of Los Angeles.
