I would like to thank the Costa Mesa Fire Department for the quick response to my mom's residence on March 25. She had fallen in her backyard, got herself up and into her kitchen to clean her blood soaked glasses so she could see. She made it to the front porch and called her next door neighbor who called 911. He had been chatting with a veteran firefighter who sat with her while and asked the right questions until the fire department got...

Richard Dunn Well-traveled and highly educated Charlie Berry journeyed through Afghanistan, Pakistan and India before territories became off limits, and trekked across Thailand and Laos before the Vietnam War escalated and the regions fell into communist hands. Berry, a 27-year world history teacher at the prestigious Kamehameha Schools in Hawaii, likes to tease his sophomore students about his globe-trotting days when he lived in parts of the world that would be difficult or impossible to visit today.

Matt Carpenter and Daniel Albert have a hard time acting their age on the Newport Harbor Baseball Assn. Bronco All-Star team. They act a year older. Carpenter is the power-hitting shortstop, catcher and pitcher who leads the team in hits and also has six home runs. Albert plays outfield and often shines late in games and in pinch-hitting roles, like when he had a two-run single to give Newport Harbor the lead in the Los Alamitos Youth Baseball Invitational championship game.

Steve Virgen The essence of the late Craig Zaltosky, a former Orange Coast College football star, can be discovered in a story told more than once by friend Tom Hamilton. Hamilton, a former Los Angeles Times sportswriter, and a few friends went to Spain for the running of the bulls in Pamplona. Meanwhile, Zaltosky had just graduated from Stanford and wanted to go run with the bulls, too. But he was invited to training camp by the new World Football League and was set to try out with the Southern California Sun. Yet, that didn't seem to stop Zaltosky from attaining what some consider the ultimate adrenaline rush.

Steve Virgen When Junior Tagaloa thinks back to his record-breaking days while playing receiver at Orange Coast College in 1986-87, he remembers many highlights, the camaraderie and the victories. He also recalls a special saying his roommate came up with, that Tagaloa ended up using not only on the field, but applying to what he did when an opportunity came his way. When Tagaloa would catch a pass in 1987 he thought: all the way on every play.

There are athletes who've been playing ball, swimming laps, slamming, digging, paddling and attacking for years. As they enter high school, they dream of playing in college or even going pro. But the reality is that most athletes won't make the cut past high school. They'll begin to see the obvious differences between their height, weight and strength, and that of their peers, and become fully aware that their chances of being recruited are dramatically shrinking. While they are feeling dismayed about their ability to play in college, more confusion is caused by the lack of honest answers from their high school's coaching staff.
