COSTA MESA — Dan Monahan knows that when kids reach a certain age, they prefer not to be referred to as boys and girls. But that isn’t stopping the youth leader from creating a space for teens at the Boys & Girls Club. Monahan, the executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of the Harbor Area, watched proudly Saturday morning as crews from DPR Construction installed new paint, walls and flooring in the aged building on Tustin Avenue. DPR renovates a different venue every year for free.

Scott Surico likes that his 6-year-old hearing-impaired son, Joshua, can attend classes at Kaiser Elementary School in Costa Mesa because his special education teachers there make sure he learns how to listen and speak without sign language or lip-reading. It’s the only program of its kind in the area. But now it’s going to be dismantled — another casualty of the cratering economy. Kaiser’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing program will be phased out by the 2009-10 school year because the majority of its students who hail from the Santa Ana School District are being pulled out so they can attend a similar program in that district at Taft Elementary School in Santa Ana. Because the amount of state funding a district receives is based on its number of students, that means the money will be shifted to Santa Ana and out of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District.

The score was tied, the players were lined up knowing the next touchdown would determine the winner, and the turkeys were cooking in the oven. Thanksgiving and football go together like turkey and stuffing, and to a group of guys — many who've known each other since elementary school — Thanksgiving means the Turkey Bowl. In 1993, while they were still in high school, longtime Costa Mesa resident Duncan Calegari and a few other buddies decided to play a game of football at Kaiser Elementary School before they headed home to eat some grub.
