The graceful curve of a long seaglass blue countertop greeted visitors Wednesday night as they passed through the airy new lobby of Hoag Health Center in Huntington Beach. Many continued on - champagne flutes and wine glasses in hand - to tour the facility's state-of-the-art imaging center, pausing to inspect a giant CT scanner or exam rooms. But Hoag officials said the front counter in some ways best symbolizes the newly redesigned facility's ethos. "We tried to make the whole building more open and integrated," said Dominic Shields, Hoag's strategic planning manager.

When most people see TJ Defalco play volleyball they get caught up in the way the Huntington Beach High outside hitter can jump high and hit so hard. They are amazed to find out he's only a junior and begin to think how great he and the Oilers will be next year. Never mind 2015. The scary thought is that unbeaten Huntington Beach is only going to get better this season. Playing with their No. 3 setter, Davis Gillett, who is a backup libero, the Oilers swept Corona del Mar, 25-23, 25-17, 26-24, to capture the OC Championships Division 1 title Monday at Edison High.

It seemed all too quiet in the Edison High gym Saturday afternoon. There was an Orange County Championships Division 1 semifinal being played, but the Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball team made winning look so easy that most conversations could be heard in the stands. Some people talked about the upsets in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Others made weekend plans. And a few urged Edison to side out. But the Sea Kings just hummed along, taking out the Chargers, 25-16, 25-12, 25-21.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Evan Chalmers coached Newport Harbor High in a Sunset League baseball game for the first time in five seasons on Friday. He was happy to be back, not so much with his team's start to league. Early on, the Sailors missed chances to jump on host Huntington Beach. Chalmers saw a runner on second base get doubled up after he didn't try to get back to the bag on a line drive to third base. In the next inning, that same player struck out with the bases loaded. The Oilers took the lead in the bottom of the second inning and they went on to open league with a convincing 8-4 win. They are talented, with a half dozen players committed to NCAA Division I programs.

What do the words "taxpayer advocate" mean to Orange County voters? What about "businesswoman?" That's what's at issue in a lawsuit Assemblyman Allan Mansoor (R-Costa Mesa) filed earlier this month alleging that one of his opponents in a June race for the Orange County Board of Supervisors has misrepresented herself on the ballot. Michelle Steel, a member of the state Board of Equalization, spends most of her days neither advocating on taxpayers' behalf nor running a business, a petition filed in Orange County Superior Court asserts.

Did I have a premonition that our lives would somehow intersect? Not really. I remember him first in 1957 as a pitcher for my favorite baseball team, the Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League. That was the year before the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles and stole my heart. Though we ended up knowing of one another for more than 30 years, I'm not sure we ever spoke. I may have said, "Hey, coach," when I encountered him in the football press box at Orange Coast College. Given half a chance, we might have become good friends.
