Driving plays a big role in golf. For Paul Hahn, he’s driving 777 miles in three days just to play golf. The golf professional at Newport Beach Country Club left town Sunday for Paso Robles, close to where he grew up and planned to vacation. The plan is changing course. Hahn said he expects to return today in the morning to prepare for the 10th annual Jones Cup at Santa Ana Country Club. Hahn can’t miss Wednesday’s event featuring the four country clubs in the Newport-Mesa area.

Don Cantrell One of the most valued lessons in sports was once absorbed by Ted Trompeter when he was a Bee team tackle under the late Les Miller at Harbor High. He assumed it was perfectly alright one afternoon to depart from grid practice and cover an agricultural assignment. He had plans to purchase a jersey calf, but failed to seek permission from the football coach to miss practice. Upon his return, Miller dismissed him from the team. A sympathetic agricultural instructor, Elgin Hall, admired Trompeter's character and chose to ask Miller to review the case.

Ben Reddick, who published the Press, a local paper, was as prickly as a porcupine. To his critics, he was loud, obnoxious, opinionated, bombastic, overbearing and unpleasant. To his admirers -- few though they may have been -- he was fearless, aggressive and outspoken. I always thought Ben visualized himself as that small-town publisher in countless westerns, the feisty man who was the enemy of the big rancher and the friend of the lonesome hero.

Pasta Connection, the venerable Italian restaurant that has resided for more than two decades at the southern tip of Harbor Boulevard, is set to close April 21. Yadira Hernandez, the daughter of the restaurant’s former owner and its de facto manager since January, said the restaurant was leaving its longtime residence because the owners could not afford a recent boost in rent. Pasta Connection has been at 1902 Harbor Blvd. for 24 years. “We’re looking for another place nearby, hopefully in a two-block radius,” Hernandez said.

Newport Beach City Atty. David Hunt, who has been on administrative leave since his March arrest on suspicion of felony spousal abuse, filed for bankruptcy in 2006, court records show. Hunt had taken out three mortgages on his $1.1-million, six-bedroom home in Paso Robles by the time he and his wife filed for Chapter 7 protection in March 2006, according to U.S. Bankruptcy court records. The bankruptcy was related to Hunt’s shuttered law practice in Paso Robles, Newport Beach Councilman Mike Henn said.

Two years ago, I was offered a job in Arizona that would have paid me far more than I am now earning. The salary would have been enough to send both children to expensive private colleges without borrowing a dime, and there would have been plenty left over to live a very nice life. One plan was to have me commute to and from the Phoenix area, leaving Monday morning and returning Friday evening so I would be home for the weekends. The other plan was to move to Arizona, which was becoming the more likely option.

ROBERT GARDNER A long time ago, I wrote a column about two incidents in which rattlesnakes struck at me and missed. The first was when I was a small boy in Wyoming. I was pushing my way through the sagebrush in a small ravine when I put my hand on a rattlesnake stretched out on a rock. He struck at my hand but was apparently sluggish from his winter hibernation. Anyway, I pulled my hand away just in time, and he missed. The second incident occurred a few years ago. Lee Hasenjager, his wife, my wife and I had rented a houseboat for a romantic trip on the Florida Keys.

The new face on Monday Night Football -- John Madden -- brought rousing cheers from many old fans Aug. 5 at Canton, Ohio for the annual Pro Hall of Fame game. The list included one of his old college mates from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, by the name of Ted Trompeter, who once served as a sterling tackle at Newport Harbor High on the 8-1 '49 grid team. Trompeter, Class of '50 at Newport, dislocated his shoulder in football at Cal Poly and faded from the turf, but angled on with his skills as a light heavyweight boxer and subsequently won the Pacific College championship as a senior.

When I was a graduate student in creative writing, my classmates hewed mostly to predictable topics: dating, family bonds, drinking and clubbing. One day, though, a robust gentleman surprised us by handing out 20 stapled copies of a story he had written for children. Evidently, he was concerned about his success, because along with the story, he submitted a sheet of positive blurbs from kids who had given it a first read. His story, as I recall, was intriguing - a folk tale of sorts about a tribal boy who discovers a beautiful animal that only his eyes can see, and whose name he can articulate in his head but not say out loud.

Seniors aren't the only ones who've hung out at the Costa Mesa Senior Center lately. Just ask Everdean Van Slooten and Sandra Bucher, who, besides being mother and daughter, are also best friends. They wouldn't give their ages, but the relationship this close-knit Costa Mesa family shares is ageless. They've parlayed their interests and their proximity to each other into time spent together in senior classes and groups, though Bucher isn't yet a senior.
