History is being made in Orange County, but it is the wrong kind of history, thanks to Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas. The prosecution of 11 Muslim students for interrupting a speech by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren at UC Irvine sends the wrong message. These students had a legitimate reason to protest. Oren had a direct role in the military attacks on Gaza almost three years ago. During that attack Israeli Defense Forces massacred 1,400 defenseless Palestinians.

A large group of supporters gathered Saturday night at the Balboa Pavilion to laud Newport Harbor High football coach Jeff Brinkley for a remarkable 25 years of cherished memories. Not only has Brinkley transformed the program on the field - a 208-90-3 winning record including CIF Southern Section championships in 1994, 1999 and 2005 and 19 postseason appearances - but he has been a sterling teacher and has impacted generations of young lives. I have spent almost 40 years in the vortex of American football.

Bring it to Tony. That's what parents and coaches have been telling young sailors for more than 30 years. Tony Burica repairs Naples sabots - the 8-foot boats popular in Newport Harbor - with unrivaled care and craftsmanship. As the summer racing season winds up, Burica, 83, begins another year of patching, sanding and painting. But this may be his last. As soon as he can find someone to take over his Victoria Avenue shop, which Burica built by hand, he'll retire to spend more time with his wife, Tereza.

COSTA MESA - Incoming Corona del Mar High freshman John Hong verified what at least three golfers in the 22nd Costa Mesa junior championship said was the key to playing well on Costa Mesa Country Club's Mesa Linda course. "The best part was my putting; I made a lot of putts," Hong said after a four-over-par 74 Wednesday that included three birdies. Hong sits one shot off the lead in the boys' 14-15 age group heading into today's final round. "I sliced some shots and had to get up and down a lot today, but I managed to do that," said Hong, among a handful of Newport-Mesa golfers in the field.

Question: Baxter, my 6-year-old Miniature Schnauzer, defecates or urinates wherever my new husband is around. The last straw was when Baxter left both "gifts" on our bed at 3 a.m. Before this, Baxter only had rare accidents when I was away too long. I've tried diapers, rewards, punishment and extra walks, all to no avail. Now, we keep Baxter in the dog run during the day and the garage at night. We're both miserable with this arrangement. Any advice? — S.S., Cyberspace Answer: Rule out a potential physical issue first with your veterinarian, says Susan McCullough, author of "Housetraining for Dummies" (Wiley Publishing, New York, NY, 2009; $16.99)

When they're growing up very few people ever question what they're told about God. God's story is a cultural idea created to explain where they came from, why they exist, how to behave, and what happens after they die. The story of God is interesting because it dominates the way many people think, react, and feel. Recently, I proposed 21 questions that people ask about God, and I have started to post the answers on our center's websites, http://www.cslnm.org and http://www.

SANTA ANA — After 82 total points scored, after more than three hours of high school football, it all came down to the left leg of Godinez High junior kicker Alex Hernandez. Hernandez split the uprights with the kick at Segerstrom High. He also broke some hearts on the Costa Mesa sideline. His conversion kick in the third overtime helped the host Grizzlies outlast the Mustangs, 42-41, in a wild game that was the Orange Coast League opener for both teams Thursday night.

As Gulf Coast residents suffer from their loss of beaches and bays, residents of Newport can enjoy their water and sand for exactly the same reason – oil. For 30 years the city of Newport Beach has been operating its own oil wells on Banning Ranch. All of the revenue from crude and natural gas goes straight to the city's coffers, into a fund for beach and bay maintenance. And it's not a small amount – in 2009 the city sold $1.8 million worth of black gold. That's a serious chunk at a time when the city was facing a $12 million budget deficit.
