Barry Faulkner NEWPORT BEACH - The Corona del Mar High freshmen football team had three days to prepare for Back Bay rival Newport Harbor. And, before Thursday's Battle of the Bay showdown at the Sea Kings' field, Coach Gary Almquist gave them just four motivational words. Our chalkboard said "Hit hard; Hit often," said Almquist, who knew if he had to offer any more verbal encouragement, his team would likely be in trouble. The Sea Kings (2-0-1)

When Burbank firefighter/paramedic Michael McDonald responded to a shooting on a rainy Saturday night in 2003, his focus was on the job he had to do and not on the potentially dangerous situation he found himself in.

Young Chang It is Michael McDonald's way to let chance and spontaneity rule what happens, to not "presuppose" what he should do, to throw music up in the air and let it fall where it will. In the late '70s, the music fell into stardom's lap and ushered McDonald to platinum-status fame as part of the Doobie Brothers. Today, after a subsequent solo career in the early '80s best known for the single "I Keep Forgettin," McDonald is still playing music and letting it get dictated by chance with the Michael McDonald Band.

Newport Harbor's explosive victory over highly regarded Marina last week lends credibility to the notion the Sailors' "slow" start in a scrimmage with Mission Viejo and a 16-8 loss in the season opener against Trabuco Hills speaks more to the quality of the competition than the lack of savvy in the Sailors' game. Dartagnan Johnson ran for 206 yards and three TDs on 23 carries last year in this game. Newport Harbor, despite its season-opening loss at Trabuco Hills, is ranked No. 3 in CIF Division VI. Quarterback Michael McDonald could hold the key to success for the Sailors.
