Rachael Cram lives in a home where hand-me-down shoes are common. When she outgrows a pair, she often passes it down to her two younger sisters — although she said she doesn’t inherit footwear from her older sister, because her feet are too big. Saturday at the Orange County Fair, though, Rachael and her family found a different use for beat-up shoes. The Cypress High School freshman, a member of the La Habra Hilltoppers 4-H Club, spent the afternoon manning a booth at the Ralphs Family Fair Way in which fairgoers could drop off their used footwear to be sent to Reuse-A-Shoe: a charity that breaks down old shoes and converts their material into sport courts, playground equipment and more.

Desperate homeowners seeking ways to avoid foreclosure were scammed out of millions of dollars and still lost their properties, according to prosecutors. Federal officials in Sacramento unsealed two separate federal indictments Monday, both implicating La Habra resident Charles Head, 33, who ran Costa Mesa-based Head Financial Services, and a number of the company’s employees.

COSTA MESA — Costa Mesa High baseball coach Jim Keifer said he is expecting big things from a certain young pitcher who had his first start of the season Saturday. That kid, sophomore Tyler Peterson, showed glimpses that he can deliver on those expectations when he helped lead the Mustangs to a 4-1 victory over visiting Santiago in a pool-play game of the Newport Elks Tournament’s Costa Mesa Division. Peterson struck out seven, walked none, allowed five hits and gave up one run in five innings.
