Richard Dunn COSTA MESA - Prior to the first tee shot in the 24th annual Girls Junior America's Cup Team Matches, longtime New Mexico captain Kay Doss said the Southern California, Northern California or San Diego golf associations win the event 90% of the time. And, following the first round of play Tuesday at Mesa Verde Country Club, it looked like Doss knew what she was talking about. Angela Won of University High, the only Orange County player on the Southern California team, shot 1-over-par 72 to lift Southern California into the early lead.

A former Republican congressman from Northern California endorsed Democratic Huntington Beach Debbie Cook in her race against incumbent Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. Paul “Pete” McCloskey, 81, who served 16 years in Congress starting in the late ’60s, changed his party affiliation to Democrat in 2007. When he left the party, McCloskey said he was frustrated with out-of-control spending and increasing bureaucracy.

I had three separate experiences recently that reinforced just how bad things are for business owners in California. A letter to one of my previous campaign supporters came back, and when I followed up with email, I learned that this pizza restaurant owner had moved the business to Texas. The California tax and regulatory burden had simply become more than this person was willing to handle. This person had been a leader in the community, organizing girls lacrosse leagues and youth sports programs throughout the city.

Beneath cloudy skies and a slight drizzle, crews set up booths, display tables, tents and walkways Friday morning at the Orange County Fairgrounds in preparation for the weekend gun show that organizers expect will bring in record crowds. Crossroads of the West has been coming to the state-run, 150-acre facility in Costa Mesa multiple times a year for nearly 25 years, but given the political climate with talks of firearms regulation and the recent gun-related violence, Crossroads and other shows have been drawing increased media attention.

It took a rejection from a sandwich chain for Troy Feist to realize that he should just start his own. Fresh out of high school and 19 years old, Feist always loved food - sandwiches, in particular - and he figured opening up a Togo's might be a good idea. So he and a friend made an appointment at the Togo's headquarters in San Jose. "We met with them for maybe about five minutes before they shooed us out of their office," Feist said. But it was a blessing, he remembered thinking, because now he could make sandwiches the way he wanted.
