Q: My husband got upset with me the other day because he says all I do is criticize him. Instead of getting angry — like I usually do — I stopped and thought about it, and I guess he's probably right. But what can I do? I make critical remarks without even thinking. — Mrs. J.F. A: You've already taken the first step by admitting you have this problem and want to do something about it. Constantly criticizing others not only drives a wedge between you and them, but it is wrong in the eyes of God. A critical attitude almost always has its roots in pride, which is a sin. Down inside, critical people like to think they are superior to others and know better about how things ought to be done.

Steve Virgen It was known as the 13th-place game of the Pride of the Coast tournament. However, for the players involved, the contest had added meaning as a majority of the competitors were familiar with one another since they are in the Newport-Mesa District and also battled against each other in Pony League action. There was a certain pride of the coast for Newport Harbor High, which, led by senior Joey Cantarella, defeated Estancia, 2-1, on the Sailors' diamond Wednesday.

When I was a kid, one of my favorite comic books was "What If … "What If Phoenix Had Not Died?"?" If you remember the movie "X-Men: The Last Stand" (2006), you might recall that Jean Grey/Phoenix (Famke Janssen) dies in the end. The comic book dealt with what would have happened if Phoenix had lived. Long story short, her fury swallows up the entire universe. With that in mind, I'd like to play, "What If …" with the cities of Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. "What if … Costa Mesa and Newport Beach outsourced their fire departments?"

Sue Clark I'm grateful for the local businesses and employees who love their jobs and take pride in them. It's so appealing to see a person who is cheerful, interested and professional, no matter what their occupation. They aren't afraid to chat briefly with a customer, while not keeping the next one waiting too long--a special art. They pick up the phone but tell the person on the other end that they have a customer (me) and may they call back. They put their personal problems on hold and maintain a cheerful demeanor.

If anyone could take pride in a baseball tournament, it was Corona del Mar High's Kevin Stuart, a 6-foot-6 pitcher/infielder who dominated in the springtime. Dizzy Dean was the Pride of St. Louis and Lou Gehrig the Pride of the Yankees, but Kevin Stuart was the Pride of the Coast. In Stuart's four years, CdM compiled a 15-1 record in the annual tournament played during Spring Break. Stuart pitched shutouts and hit game-winning home runs in a sometimes awesome display of individual power.

Whether you call it the Pride of Newport or the Reuben E. Lee, get ready to say goodbye to the old riverboat that housed the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum for 10 years. Dismantling of the boat could begin as soon as next week, officials said Wednesday. After a decade on the boat, the museum was relocated to the Balboa Fun Zone earlier this year. Officials tried for a year to sell the Pride of Newport — "we had a hundred interested parties," museum Executive Director David Muller said — but it wasn't seaworthy, and moving it entailed enough issues that prospective buyers dropped out. He said he's working out some details with the city to get a demolition permit.

For more than 25 years, the gardens that gave the Memorial Gardens Building its name served as a quiet respite for a growing city. The nonprofit Orange County Memorial Garden, dedicated to all veterans, was established in 1953 and erected the following year. The garden took up a small space within the Orange County Fairgrounds, which during World War II was part of the massive Santa Ana Army Air Base. The base occupied a large chunk of present-day Costa Mesa. The 1.4-acre garden is described in early documents kept by the Costa Mesa Historical Society as "two circular flower beds within the form of a figure eight.

Alfred Molina accompanied Joseph Kibler at the AIDS Walk Los Angeles last year. This was no ordinary partnership. The actor, with roles in "Frida," "Spider-Man 2," "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Chocolat" to his name, offered support to Kibler, who is HIV-positive and paraplegic, but was determined to successfully complete the feat. "There's no event or way greater to show that not only am I proud of what it's taken to get to where I'm at, but what it's taken to get an entire community of HIV/AIDS survivors to that day," said the 24-year-old Glendale resident.

In many ways, their journey began at the destination. Now, four years later, Vanguard University seniors Rachel Rucireta, Amanda Couch, Lauren Evans and Charlotte Wisniewski will once again fly just more than 2,000 miles and play as many as four games in an attempt to retrieve their destiny. The four friends, teammates and roommates since arriving at the Costa Mesa Christian school as women's soccer recruits, have, in many ways come full circle as they prepare to compete in the round of 16 at the NAIA Championships in Orange Beach, Ala. They have also come of age, both on the field and off, forming roughly one-third of the lineup for the winningest team in the program's history.

The aspect I remember best about Conrad Tao was the atypical way that his fellow musicians admired his onstage playing. I saw several of them - who are usually quite the stoic bunch - giving looks reminiscent of proud grandparents as Tao, then the 16-year-old prodigy pianist, performed Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6" as an encore. It was great. And, of course, so was Tao . The Chinese American musician, now 18, returns to Costa Mesa next week to perform with the Pacific Symphony once again.
