Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - Opening Day for the Costa Mesa Pop Warner Football league included a variety of happenings behind the scenes, the background to the scrimmage games with Huntington Beach at Costa Mesa High Saturday.

Strength... Honor... Discipline... Young football players can come be a part of the 2008 League Champion Costa Mesa Eagles Pop Warner Football and Cheer program.  Once they become a part of the Pop Warner family, they'll wonder why they didn't join it sooner. During the football season all teams and squads practice together... at the same time and day at Parson's Field (behind Jim Scott Stadium), and the snack bar is open for dinner during practice. Pop Warner has been an integral part of the youth sports community in Costa Mesa since 1963.

Cole Forsberg is a strong 14-year-old boy. His mother, Catherine, used the adjective Thursday night at Costa Mesa Pop Warner football practice. She was talking about her son's physical strength, which has him playing offensive guard and defensive tackle for his Midget football team. Perhaps more impressive, though, is Cole's mental fortitude. It's Cole's first year playing tackle football, but he fits in well with his team. The Midget squad scrimmages Saturday afternoon, part of Costa Mesa Pop Warner's opening day ceremonies at Jim Scott Stadium.

COSTA MESA — Even by recent standards, the City Council meeting on Tuesday took an unusually personal tone as critics attacked the council majority, with council members responding in kind. Like steam looking for a vent, residents opposed to Costa Mesa's outsourcing plans used a proposal to give Costa Mesa Pop Warner up to $10,000 in city funds as an opportunity to again challenge the majority's logic in potentially laying off workers. "What I've been told since February is we don't have any money," said Costa Mesa City Employees Assn.

S teve Mensinger hopes that the Costa Mesa Pop Warner youth football program never has to use it. The portable automated external defibrillator the Eagles recently bought comes in a box about the size of a lunch box. It also has the power to save someone's life. Costa Mesa Pop Warner bought the device in April, spending around $2,000. Coaches will be trained to use it, although its operation appears simple, with an on-off switch and another button used to administer the shock if a player, parent or coach went into cardiac arrest.

COSTA MESA — For two weeks, Vanessa Mariani, a 7-year-old from Costa Mesa, pestered her mother about wanting to play tackle football. It seemed as if everyday the little girl would shove a glossy flier about Costa Mesa Pop Warner in her mom’s face. “Have you signed me up yet?” Vanessa would ask. “I felt like if she wants to do it that badly I should check it out,” her mother, Sonya, said. “I talked to the coaches and they assured me that it would be safe, so I just let her play.

An $8,000, 20-by-40-foot awning meant to give shade to Pee Wee, Mighty Mite and Midget football players at Costa Mesa High School sits in a school district storage shed this week, unused, the center of a heated battle between school administrators and parents. Newport-Mesa Unified School District workers tore down the awning Sunday afternoon after a struggle with Pop Warner football parents over whether the structure would stay or go. Administrators said the awning was erected illegally without the school district?
