When Gen. Idi Amin Dada became president of Uganda in 1971, there was much rejoicing in the streets. A giant of a man with a dazzling smile, he charmed all as he pledged his devotion to improving the lives of his people. By the time he was ousted from power eight years later, more than 300,000 of those people would be dead. "The Last King of Scotland" is a mixture of fact and fiction, and features a powerhouse performance by Forest Whitaker as the murderously mad dictator, who could be childlike one minute and terrifying the next.

After retiring from his administrative position as vice chancellor for student affairs at UC Irvine in 2004, Jim Craig returns to campus once each year for a very specific purpose. Joined by about 50 students and staff members Wednesday, Craig participated in the annual Martin Luther King Jr. march and rally for the 23rd time. The demonstration was held to honor the civil rights leader's message and spirit. "I come to remember the actions and principles of Martin Luther King Jr.," Craig said.

Like many others attending the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Gospel Concert Sunday, Laura Wright brought money with her to donate to the fund at the end of the evening. For Wright, 26, giving to this charity held special meaning, since she would be giving back to the very scholarship fund that made it possible for her to finish her college studies just a few years ago. Wright, who graduated from UC Irvine with a degree in engineering in 2004, now runs her own marketing firm in North Hollywood.

Student artist, 12, takes second place in statewide contest honoring King.It took Tanner Grandstaff all of 20 minutes to create an award-winning drawing. The 12-year-old Newport Beach artist sat in his living room one night after school late last year and crafted a portrait of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. The finished product won him second place among fifth- and sixth-graders in a contest open to all of California's elementary school students. Sen. Barbara Boxer's office sponsored the contest, which asked the young artists to draw a picture illustrating the late civil rights leader.

TOM TITUS It's refreshing indeed to hear stories emanating from Baghdad of the playful, wistful, romantic and moral variety -- even if we're talking about medieval Baghdad, when that city lay at the heart of the Persian Empire. Such tales are being spun at UC Irvine, where Mary Zimmerman's "Arabian Nights," a spellbinding adaptation of the classic "Thousand and One Nights," weaves its own special enchantment. Director Annie Loui has transformed the university's Studio Theater into a palace of pleasure, where one can rest on comfortable pillows (if one wishes)

It was a tough assignment for a Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team coming off spring break. The Sea Kings had to play host to Foothill in a nonleague game. Foothill is ranked No. 1 in the state of California by laxpower.com, as well as No. 3 in the western United States behind two teams from Colorado. Yes, this was a powerhouse, undefeated Foothill team coming off an 18-3 thrashing of CdM's Pacific Coast League rival Beckman on Friday. It would have been easy to lose by a comfortable margin, then talk about improving in the coming weeks for the U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section South Division playoffs.

Sophomore went up against sophomore with one out, the bases loaded and the score tied, 4-4. This wasn't necessarily a play that defined young players pitcher Connor Brown of Estancia High and Evan Larsen of Corona del Mar. It actually turned out being a bit anticlimactic as a pass ball became the final play when Nick Premer scored to give CdM a 5-4 victory in a Beach Pit Classic game at CdM Monday. But both players, Larsen's a pitcher too, made plays throughout the game that caused their coaches to continue to be excited about their respective futures.

Junior midfielder Shelby Brown called the end of the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer season "crazy," and nobody who saw the games would argue. Two tight wins on the road at the end of league helped the Sea Kings win their fourth straight outright league title. In the first, CdM had to survive a last-minute, penalty-kick attempt against Beckman. In the second, the Sea Kings had to rally from a two-goal deficit at Northwood in the final 20 minutes. CdM then earned two shootout wins in its first two games of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, against Fountain Valley and Upland.

Winning a Pacific Coast League game is a definite goal of the Corona del Mar softball team this year. It might not sound like much, but it would mean a ton to the program. The Sea Kings, who have had a strong preseason, haven't won a league game since 2008. They will not win any by playing "scared," as their coach said they did during Tuesday's league opener against Irvine at home. CdM fell behind early and suffered an 11-1, six-inning, "mercy rule" loss to the Vaqueros. It is the program's 51st straight league loss.

TUSTIN - As Corona del Mar High began to mount a comeback on Friday, an assistant coach told the boys' lacrosse team of what he believed was the inevitable. "They're going to fall," said Jeremy Sieverts, referring to Beckman. In the past, that has always been the case. The Sea Kings always beat the Patriots, and they always beat them up badly. The teams met a dozen times in the previous six seasons, CdM winning by an average of 11 goals per game. Eleven goals are how much the Sea Kings needed to score in their latest matchup to knock off Beckman again.

In terms of the rankings, the result of Wednesday's Pacific Coast League girls' lacrosse match had to be considered an upset. Beckman came into the match ranked No. 4 in Southern California by laxpower.com, and CdM was No. 10. The Patriots, who own impressive wins over Los Alamitos and Mater Dei, were also the top-ranked team in Orange County. CdM was again at the No. 10 spot. The team that always seems to have the "LAX power" in the league is Beckman. But CdM might just be ready to change that this year.

Going into the week, the Corona del Mar High boys' volleyball team had three Pacific Coast League home matches before it skips town. Spring break is next week and the Sea Kings are bound for Hawaii. The Sea Kings played the second match on Thursday, and they dropped their first set in league this season. That's all they lost, before topping Northwood, 25-11, 25-16, 23-25, 25-15, to improve to 4-0 in league. Corona del Mar returns to its gym on Friday to face University at 5:15 p.m. The contest wraps up the first round of league for the defending league champion.

In a span of just hours Friday, four Corona del Mar High juniors got both bling and bragging rights. Hoyt and Hugh Crance, Brett Greenlee and Chad Redfearn, all starters on defense for the CdM football team that won CIF Southern Section Southern Division, CIF State Southern California Regional Division III and CIF State Division III championships last fall, got their championship rings in a ceremony on campus. Later Friday afternoon, they again started on defense, this time for the CdM boys' lacrosse team against rival Newport Harbor.

Winning was something that the Corona del Mar High softball team got to experience just once in Carly Smith's first year at the helm. The Sea Kings came out on the wrong side of the score every time but once last year. They finished 1-21, only winning a nonleague game against Costa Mesa. CdM showed Tuesday that it could again beat the Mustangs, taking a 7-1 decision at Bonita Creek Park. But this time, it's more than just a footnote. It's a continuation of the momentum the Sea Kings have been building in the early part of the season.

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.
