Family and friends of a Burbank woman who disappeared last August and was later found murdered will gather Saturday for a memorial in her honor. Burbank Police, meanwhile, continue their investigation into the death of Sharon Anne Santos and have not ruled out a maintenance man from Santos's apartment building as a person of interest in the case. Santos, 30, had gone missing after returning to her apartment on Scott Road on Aug. 17, 2004, from her job as a financial analyst with Warner Bros.

When Baby Shane was born in January, it was safe to say that his life would include plenty of tennis, Estancia High tennis to be exact. It’s also fair to say there would be a lot of love in his life. With regard to tennis, this love meant so much more than the zero in a set. Baby Shane was born to tennis coach Rachel de los Santos and her husband, Derek Smith, the assistant coach. Instantly, he also became a part of the Estancia family, especially on the girls’ tennis team.

Bryce Alderton Estancia High girls tennis coach Rachel de los Santos said the key in the Eagles' run to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs last season was their ability to handle pressure and not give in to nerves. The fourth-year coach has reason for optimism that this year's group will have similar qualities since eight players return off a team that went 14-2, including a 12-0 mark to win the Golden West League title.

Richard Dunn COSTA MESA - Excitement fills the air around Estancia High's tennis courts these days. Under first-year girls tennis coach Rachel de los Santos, the Eagles are primed for preleague and Pacific Coast League competition, despite only nine players -- barely enough to complete a lineup. "They'll all play in every match, as long as somebody doesn't get hurt," said de los Santos, originally hired as Estancia's junior varsity coach, then quickly promoted three weeks ago when the varsity position opened up. For de los Santos, 24, it's her first year coaching.

The Lees have contributed thousands of dollars in donations and countless hours of service to the soup kitchen over the past decade, even sponsoring the Someone Cares team at the Orange County Marathon.

Chris Yemma Four years ago, Estancia High girls tennis coach Rachel de los Santos was asked to do a favor. The boys tennis coach had quit just days before the season was set to begin and de los Santos was asked to fill in until a replacement could be found. Four years later, the replacement was never found. "When he quit, they asked me if I could take over the boys," de los Santos said. "And here I am four years later." In three years of coaching the boys, de los Santos turned around what was once a cellar dweller in the Pacific Coast League, into a formidable force in the Golden West League.

Bryce Alderton Second-year Estancia High girls tennis coach Rachel de los Santos didn't hesitate when asked what her goals were for the Eagles this year. "Definitely have a better record than last year," de los Santos said, referring to last season when the Eagles didn't win a match. "We were in a league where we definitely didn't match up well at all. There were schools that were much better than us so I'm definitely looking forward to this season."

Bryce Alderton Speculation can abound as to the cause, but there is no disputing the facts.

Amara Aguilar The Estancia High Eagles probably won't soar above all of the competition in Pacific Coast League boys tennis action this season, but the team is looking forward to building for the years to come. "We are very young," first-year Estancia Coach Rachel De Los Santos said. "This is definitely a learning year. We are going to go out and try our best against competitive tennis schools, like Corona del Mar. We are just going to get our players experience playing in matches and prepare them for next year when we enter our new league."

Shannon Santos has learned not to presume too much about people when they walk through the door of Someone Cares Soup Kitchen. Santos, the executive director of the Westside nonprofit, sees many people needing food every day — and often, a few more well-off neighbors looking to volunteer. Lately, though, she’s found it harder to distinguish between the two. “We’re seeing a whole new type of person that’s coming to the soup kitchen,” Santos said.

An influx of funding in the past few days has helped Costa Mesa’s Someone Cares Soup Kitchen raise thousands of dollars, but the Westside charity is still dangerously close to running out of money, according to Executive Director Shannon Santos. She sent out an e-mail to supporters in the middle of last week and a letter Friday saying the nonprofit had only enough cash in the bank to sustain its operation for about two months. Despite a surge in donations in the days since the pleas went out, that figure has not changed much, but the increased giving has raised the director’s morale.

Community uproar over Someone Cares Soup Kitchen’s proposal to put a portable building behind its Westside Costa Mesa dining hall to house its tutoring operation caused the nonprofit to withdraw its plans, according to Someone Cares Executive Director Shannon Santos. “We want to keep goodwill with our neighbors and our community,” Santos said. The tutoring program serves kids from nearby Pomona Elementary School who come in from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday in groups of 15 per hour for homework help.

When the Someone Cares Soup Kitchen held its first Thanksgiving dinner 22 years ago, about 30 people reportedly showed up for a hot meal. This year, hundreds will be able to dig into the turkey, gravy, potatoes and stuffing, with so many volunteers that they will work in four shifts. It’s the monument left by Merle Hatleberg, who passed away in May 2007. Hatleberg single-handedly founded the kitchen on her birthday, June 15, 1986. It began with volunteers handing out food at the Rea community center, which has since been turned back into Rea Elementary School.

LAGUNA BEACH — Illness and lineup shifts shaped the way the Orange Coast League girls’ tennis match between Estancia High and Laguna Beach was played Thursday at Laguna Beach High. Both teams were without a key player and their absences forced Eagles Coach Rachel de los Santos and Breakers Coach Jimmy Gleason to move other players into different slots. Those changes did nothing to prevent a spirited effort by both teams that, in fact, played to a 9-9 tie. The Breakers, however, took the victory by virtue of a 77-71 advantage in games won. The loss, the first in league play for Estancia, dropped the Eagles to 8-4, 2-1 in league.
