My friendship with John Canalis, editor of the Daily Pilot, is both strange and wonderful. He's wonderful and I'm just strange! But all kidding aside, since we met more than four years ago, not only have we put our heads together creating the ground-breaking political forum series Feet to the Fire, but we also did something unprecedented. We brought together media outlets in Orange County. Moving past the pettiness of competition, the Daily Pilot, Orange County Register and the Voice of OC have continued to come together for a common goal with these forums.

As players warmed up in the Corona del Mar High gym, Magnolia Coach Matt Tweed talked to a couple of fans in the stands that made the road trip to support his boys' basketball team. The topic was running, not the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA basketball playoffs. He told the fans about CdM's well known distance coach, Bill Sumner. The school's basketball team ended up running circles around Magnolia on the court. Fourth-seeded CdM ran away from the Sentinels in the second half en route to a 58-27 win on Wednesday.

Members of the Costa Mesa High boys' basketball team tied a program record this year with 19 wins. They also won the Battle of the Bell series against cross-town rival Estancia for the third straight year. What they weren't able to do prior to Wednesday night's CIF Southern Section Division 4AA first-round playoff game, though, was grow several inches each. Visiting Harvard-Westlake had a size advantage, and the No. 8-seeded Wolverines exploited it on their way to a 64-48 victory that ended Costa Mesa's season.

It's quaint and colorful, with rows of tiles above the front door that might have been all the rage in the 19th century. And for $875,000, it can be yours. The Station Master's House - believed to be the oldest home in Costa Mesa, save for the Diego Sepulveda Adobe from the 1820s - is up for sale. Though records are inconclusive, local historians say the little abode may have been built as early as 1880. The house itself, made from redwood, is in a "style no longer seen in California," according to its listing with Costa Mesa-based Torelli Realty.

A Santa Ana house where authorities Wednesday discovered as many as 400 snakes is so littered with cages and rats and snakes - some alive, many dead - that animal control officers said they are still making their way through the cluttered house and haven't thoroughly searched all the rooms. A teacher from Mariners Elementary School in Newport Beach who lived in the house was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of animal cruelty, and authorities obtained a search warrant to scour the home.
