Most students don't get hands-on training with geriatric patients until near the end of their studies, but UC Irvine School of Medicine students experience senior health issues a little earlier. During the first three years of coursework, two freshman medical students are paired with one adult, age 55 or older, for physical practice of geriatric medicine techniques as part of the school's Student-Senior Partner Program. For third-year medical student, Sarah Smith, working with people was something she knew would happen eventually, but it surprised her how soon that came around.

Ruth Cisneros knew she wanted to have a career with opportunity and one that allowed her to help people. Going to medical school was a natural fit. As she walked in her home country of Ecuador to the nearest facility to sign up for medical school, the building was closed. But Cisneros’ hopes were not dashed. Instead, Cisneros made the best of what was provided — that being a dentistry school down the street. Years later, and nearly 10 years since she immigrated to America, Cisneros is making the best of what could have been a bad situation once again.

As a novelist and playwright, Ira Levin refused to be categorized or pigeonholed. He could produce such rollicking comedies as "Critic's Choice" and "No Time for Sergeants" or delve into more chilling fare like "Rosemary's Baby" or "The Boys from Brazil. " "Dr. Cook's Garden," now being revived at the Newport Theatre Arts Center, falls quite definitely into the latter category. It deals with a small-town Vermont physician and gardening enthusiast who prunes his roses and the village's undesirables with the same meticulous care.

Medical industry sources estimate that the United States faces a potential shortage of 150,000 doctors in the next 15 years. If true, that unwelcome proposition makes it more important than ever to encourage today's youth to pursue an education in medicine. But how do we spark their interest? A few years ago, Dr. Behnoosh Afghani had an idea. The UC Irvine pediatrics professor wanted to find a way to expose high school students to the medical school experience. Her thinking wasn't entirely new. Plenty of colleges offer health-care themed programs for younger students.

The two strangers leafed through the scrapbook, their memories of a man in common flowing like the airy music that earlier filled the hall. There they were, backstage at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall after Tuesday night's Philharmonic Society of Orange County concert, my grandmother and the New York Philharmonic musician reminiscing over the late Saul Goodman. Goodman was my 96-year-old grandmother's "Uncle Solly," but in the world of classical music, he was a giant among timpanists and played with the New York Phil for 46 years.

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.

Melissa Scharfe has been a Five Crowns server for six years, but she's also a full-time student getting ready for medical school — a fact that helped save the life of a woman who began choking during a holiday meal last week. The incident occurred about 6 p.m. Tuesday when Five Crowns was packed with diners enjoying traditional holiday meals, with decorations, fireplaces and carolers adding to the atmosphere. Scharfe was working her way through a crowded hallway, a cosmopolitan on a tray in her hands, when she heard a woman in the main dining room scream.
