The 73-year-old Salata, founder of the infamous Irrelevant Week in Newport Beach, was honored by the Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based alumni group for his accomplishments on and off the field -- most notably his time-honored Irrelevant Week, which has toasted and roasted the last player chosen in the annual NFL Draft for nearly a quarter-century.

COSTA MESA — When Becky Bailey-Findley was a child, she often asked her parents to take her to eat at Dick Church’s Restaurant on their way back from the Orange County Fair. Her parents always declined, and it wasn’t until after Bailey-Findley got a job at the fair herself that she got to enjoy a meal there. As it turned out, though, Bailey-Findley found plenty of other reasons to stay around the fairgrounds. This summer, the Anaheim Hills resident plans to step down after 14 years as the fair’s chief executive — and Friday, the Costa Mesa Chamber of Commerce and South Coast Metro Alliance rewarded her for her service.

“Who are you people? These young people are good enough to be dancing on the stage of the Pantages Theatre,” said Mitzi Gaynor as she was introduced on stage at Chapman University on Saturday. Gaynor, looking every bit the movie star that she is, wearing a chic magenta-red knit pant ensemble with glittering rhinestone buttons, beamed with a smile as broad as Orange County. The star of such classic films as “South Pacific” joined Chapman University President Dr. Jim Doti , surrounded by a troupe of more than 100 student performers who had indeed put on a show the caliber of which was worthy of the Pantages or any other professional theater.
