I am the son of a cop. My dad spent 30 years in the Los Angeles Police Department, and I grew up surrounded by cops. Jerry Wooters, also a cop on the LAPD, was a frequent visitor to our house. For most of my youth, Jerry walked from his house to ours for coffee every Saturday morning. It was his routine. But there were lots of others with names like Trailer, Knuckles and Matheney. They were good men and full of fun, in spite of the ugly and harsh parts of the world they had witnessed.

ENSENADA, MEXICO - Before lunch began, Commodore Chuck Iverson sat in the back corner of a restaurant, reviewing the guest list. It seemed a generic Newport Beach scene: place settings arranged on white tablecloths. Ocean view. Members of the Newport Ocean Sailing Assn., or NOSA, bedecked in navy blazers and khaki pants, mingling with the mayor. Still, the group hadn't valet parked their cars outside. They'd arrived by van. And they were greeted with glasses of wine, not from California, but vineyards in Mexico.

All she does is win, win, win, no matter what. Newport Harbor High senior Marissa Robertson can relate to that DJ Khaled song. This year in the pool, she has been unbeatable for the Sailors girls' swim team. Robertson has won all of her individual races all year long. The 50-yard freestyle, 100 free, 100 breaststroke, 100 butterfly? No problem. On Tuesday in a Sunset League meet against Marina, Robertson even threw in the 200-yard individual medley for good measure. "I don't usually swim 200s," Robertson said the next day, able to laugh because she again touched first, before any of her competition.

With two balls, two strikes and two outs in a 2-2 game, the deuces truly were wild for Fountain Valley High baseball senior Daniel Patzlaff on Friday afternoon. Patzlaff, who wears jersey No. 2 for the Barons, saw a pitch he liked in the top of the fourth inning. It was down and in, but he managed to hit it out to right field. The two-run home run was — you guessed it — Patzlaff's second round-tripper of the season. And it helped the Sunset League-leading Barons earn their second win over Newport Harbor in three days, 4-2, at the Sailors' field.

Newport Beach lifeguards and a bystander rescued eight people from rough surf and fast-moving currents off the Balboa Peninsula this week. About 5 p.m. Tuesday, lifeguard Michael Newmaster realized a strong rip current was forming near 15th Street and about to pull a group of bodyboarders out to sea. Newmaster first yelled a warning to three who were close enough to the beach to stand and walk to shore. As Newmaster then got ready to jump in the water, retired Newport Beach lifeguard Alan Buchanan offered to help.

Boaters in Newport Beach don't drag their vessels out of the water for the winter. After all, chunks of ice would be hard to find floating in the harbor. No matter. Like their counterparts in less-hospitable climates, where yacht clubs shut down as snowy days loom, Southern Californians want to celebrate the tradition of opening day too. One by one, local yacht clubs are kicking off the season with traditional pomp. "It becomes more or less their hour of shine to start the season," said Morrie Willkie, commodore of the Southern California Yachting Assn.

What a game! What a game! That might be a simple way to describe what took place Wednesday night at Davidson Field, where Newport Harbor High and Marina battled in a wild and crazy boys' lacrosse game.

"A perfect storm for disaster," Todd said before addressing his victorious Sailors in a post-game meeting.
