The men and women of the Costa Mesa Police Department are sticking to their guns. At least, that's what they want to do. Up for approval during Tuesday night's City Council session is a resolution that would allow, at the police chief's discretion, honorably retiring officers the chance to buy their department-issued service weapon. "This would allow sworn members of the department who have faithfully served a full career to be considered, with stringent approvals, the opportunity to purchase, at fair-market value, their service weapon," said Police Chief Tom Gazsi in a prepared statement to the Daily Pilot.

IRVINE — In his fourth year in the UC Irvine baseball program, Kyle Hooper knows that there are consequences to less-than-stellar pitching. Among them is a conversion, more of a monologue really, with Anteaters' veteran coach Mike Gillespie. Such was the case after Hooper's last outing on Thursday at BYU, in which he allowed two runs in one-third of an inning. Tacked on to his previous appearance on March 2 against Portland, Hooper had given up six runs on seven hits in his last six innings.

A murder victim's father described a detective who was as caring as he was skilled. Cops remembered a field officer who mentored rookies. An off-the-job buddy recalled a quick-witted jokester. And the police chief praised his charge's work but took a moment to laud his off-duty role as a "caring father" of four. These were just some of the words used to describe Costa Mesa Police Det. Mike Delgadillo, a 32-year department veteran who died Wednesday following an off-duty, single-car crash the night before.
