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.

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)

In a Pacific Coast League game featuring first-place Beckman against fourth-place Corona del Mar it appeared it would be a tight one … through the first three innings. But then came chaos in the fourth inning. Well, it was chaos for CdM. Yet it was a bonafide, two-out rally for the Patriots, who scored seven runs and went on to beat the Sea Kings, 11-2, Friday at CdM. It left the Sea Kings (6-16, 4-7 in league) needing to win their final four regular-season games for a playoff berth and it left the Patriots (20-2, 10-1)

Corona del Mar High Coach Steve Conti says he was a little bit smarter with his scheduling. Rather than start the season with Los Angeles Loyola again, he decided to push it back toward the end of it. Almost half of his boys' volleyball team plays a sport in the winter, and against Loyola, Conti preferred CdM to be at full strength. After last season's opener at Loyola, where Conti said it looked like his young Sea Kings had never played volleyball before, losing in three sets, the move made sense.

IRVINE — Corona del Mar High tennis senior Carson Williams does not know the name of the mystery man who he hit with last weekend in Ojai. Williams said the man was in the men's open division of the 114th annual Ojai Tennis Tournament, and he needed a warmup partner. He hit with the man for about 90 minutes. "I couldn't find him on the draw," Williams said. "He said his first name is Dane, but that must have been short for something. He was really good. He needed a warmup [partner]

IRVINE - Do not underestimate the girls' water polo contingent on the Corona del Mar High girls' swim team. Two weeks ago it was junior Grace Morgan stepping in on the "A" relays, helping CdM win the Battle of the Bay for another year. On Tuesday afternoon at University High, sophomore Bridgett Storm took center stage. Storm sure picked a great time to win her first 200-yard freestyle race of the season. She gave her team some early-meet momentum, helping CdM accomplish something it hadn't done in eight years.

IRVINE - The day after many of the players on the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team returned from the three-day Stagecoach Country Music Festival, they had a huge Pacific Coast League game against Beckman. The festival was much more fun for the Sea Kings than the game at the Patriots' field Monday. CdM stayed competitive for most of the contest, but at the end the goals dried up, just like the festival grounds in the desert in Indio. The resulting 13-9 Beckman victory means that CdM is most likely denied its first outright league title in program history.

Go to a Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse game, and you probably won't hear the name "Sabrina" uttered once by any of the Sea Kings. Senior Sabrina Smith? She goes by "Bean," a funny nickname for the tall and slender Smith, who stands 5-foot-10. When she was a baby Smith's parents, Todd and Sherry, called her "Sabrina Bo-Bina," which was soon shortened to "Bean. " Then, in first grade, there was another Sabrina in her class at Harbor View Elementary. The teacher asked if either of the girls had a nickname.

Since the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse team suffered its first setback three weeks ago, the Sea Kings have been rolling. They continued their strong play and exacted some revenge at home on Thursday. The Sea Kings walloped St. Margaret's, 12-3, collecting their sixth straight victory in front a big a crowd. The result turned out much differently than last season's two meetings between the Orange County powerhouse programs. Back then, the Tartans handed CdM its second and third losses, the third one ended the Sea Kings' season.

The game against visiting Corona del Mar was the school's "game of the week," and a large student population checked out the action. University wore pink uniforms, in honor of breast cancer awareness. The Trojans had to be just tickled pink with the game's result, too.

The Battle of the Bay game is special in each sport, but in girls' lacrosse it's maybe just a bit more friendly. The Newport Wedge girls' lacrosse program was started eight years ago by Lauren Mulvaney and the Davin family. Players from both Corona del Mar and Newport Harbor high schools have started playing there in middle school, before moving on to high school. CdM Coach Aly Simons has coached both future Sea Kings and Sailors in the Wedge program. She and Newport Harbor Coach Matt Armstrong have a good working relationship.

The Battle for the Bay tends to open the track and field season for the Corona del Mar and Newport Harbor high schools. They pushed the meet back a month this season because the teams in their respective leagues are on spring break this week. With no one else to face, the Sailors traveled to CdM on Thursday. One school ended a streak and another continued one in the Back Bay rivalry. The Newport Harbor boys pulled out a 65-62 win, beating CdM for the first time in five seasons.
