From the Sidelines: Don Cantrell for Sat. Many high school classes come and go with flair and finesse, but draw little national fanfare, yet the dynamic Newport Harbor High Class of '55 blossomed out with prized athletes who drew state and national spotlights from prep days through college years. In fact, one named Tod White and three others at Occidental College in '57 shined on the international scene by breaking the world record in the two-mile relay at the L.A. Coliseum. White ran his best-ever mile in college, clocking 4:08.

On a scorching last Saturday night, I drove into Los Angeles to see a very special play. It was in one of the several dozen small theaters that make up the off-Broadway of Los Angeles. The play we attended at the Theater of Note was called, “He Asked For It” and had been well reviewed in the Los Angeles Times. It was written by my stepson, Erik Patterson, who got his grounding at Newport Harbor High School and Occidental College. This isn’t a first for Erik.
