Not only will the Daily Pilot Cup this year provide a taste of fun competition, but friends and family will have the opportunity to dine together with goodies from the Newport Rib Company. The family restaurant is teaming up with Sonora Elementary PTA and Costa Mesa High School Cheer to provide dinner and munchies to soccer fans at the Farm Sports Complex snack bar. “I have kids playing in the Daily Pilot Cup, and I grew up in the area, so it only made sense to get involved and make the experience for the local community even better,” said John Ursini, proprietor of Newport Rib Co. Sonora Elementary PTA will use funds from the booth to help pay for library books and accelerated reading programs at the school.

You wouldn't take candy from a baby. So why, local mom and American Youth Soccer Organization Region 120 board member Silvia Casasola wondered, would someone steal all the candy and Gatorade from a snack bar that raises money for young soccer players? "It's just kind of disappointing," Casasola said of the Monday night theft from the AYSO parent-run snack bar, which is open most afternoons and all day Saturdays at the Jack Hammett Sports Complex in Costa Mesa. It wasn't exactly a grand heist, Casasola said: About $300 in Ring Pops, Sour Punch straws, chocolate bars, sunflower seeds and other goodies was taken.

COSTA MESA — Bernadette "Miss Bernie" Loeffler celebrated her 90th birthday Thursday by coming to work at Kaiser Elementary School's snack bar just like she has done for the last 15 years. After all, somebody has to make sure the kids eat no more than two cookies. "I love them," Loeffler said, in her faint Boston accent. "They are all my cookiefaces, as I call them. " The Costa Mesa resident celebrated her milestone birthday with cake and presents from her colleagues, handmade cards and hugs from students, and a colorful birthday banner hung over her snack bar. "She's a trooper," said Kathi Doran, the nutrition services cafeteria manager.

To celebrate the reopening of the TeWinkle Park Athletic Complex on Thursday, Davis Elementary School sixth-grader Clarissa Olivares and her fellow classmates sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Last year, before the revamping of the site, "it looked like a dump," the 11-year-old Costa Mesa girl said. "I think it's gorgeous now," said Clarissa's mother Mari Pozgaj after the dedication of the new facility by Costa Mesa city staffers and council members. "It makes me want to go and get bats and balls and play catch."

Deirdre Newman The departure of the manager of the Orange Coast College bookstore kept the facility closed for the second day today. Mark Freed resigned on Nov. 6 because his vision for how the bookstore should operate didn't mesh with the administration's, said Jim McIlwain, vice president of administrative services. Freed was unavailable for comment. The closure is necessary to do a complete inventory of all the books, both on the shelves and in the warehouse, especially since store staff ordered too much during the last school year, McIlwain said.

Former Corona del Mar resident J.G. Ortman remembers a time when a soda at the now-shuttered Port Theater’s snack bar cost 50 cents and filmgoers never knew when they might bump into a minor film star in the aisles. Ortman’s mother and father were the first owners of the Port Theater, which opened in 1949. Ortman, a student at Orange Coast College at the time, worked at the snack bar. Ortman’s mother and father got their start in the theater business in Oklahoma during the 1930s.

The woman reportedly told the teenager she would be killed if she screamed. However, she made no other demands, according to a police report filed by the girl.

NEWPORT BEACH — After years of planning, revisions, and soured relationships with surrounding residents, St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach is underway in a redevelopment plan of two buildings. And everyone involved agreed it's time to let the healing begin. A ground breaking ceremony held after Sunday services in the church's courtyard including a cooperative effort between the church, the city and the community. Mayor Steve Rosansky, councilmembers Leslie Daigle and Keith Curry and former mayor Don Webb were among those who grabbed a shovel and gave the ceremonial movement of dirt.

Costa Mesa might reconsider which local athletics groups should have greater access to the city's fields and how much they should pay based on whether they compensate their executive staffs or board members. The Parks and Recreation Commission recommended that course of action with a 3-2 vote at its meeting Thursday night. The idea is to draw a distinction between volunteer-based groups and groups that compensate their local officials, commission Chairman Byron de Arakal said before the meeting.

Submitted by Laura Gelgand The soccer ball flies toward the goal with all the force a 4-foot, 6-inch, 70-pound third-grader can muster. The goalie dives for it, but too late. Goal! “Is that five or six?” one of the parents asks. It’s five. Five to zero, and the Harbor View Vikings are losing for the third day in a row. But you’d never know it by the pure glee on those Viking faces. “We’ve got spirit! Yeah, yeah, we’ve got SPIRIT…” the Harbor View girls cheer as they jog back into position for the kick-off after the other team’s goal for the 16th time in three days.

Forty years later, the ramshackle program made up of a few local kids that moved from park to park trying to find space to play, struggling to field a full team each weekend, has a permanent home near Estancia High School.

An old man wearing a black fedora and working the makeshift snack bar behind the backstop held a sheet of paper. No one bought goodies late in Costa Mesa High’s softball game Wednesday. You couldn’t possibly eat enough sugar to keep pace with the Mustangs’ attack. Sami Feinstein needs no sugar to be on a constant high. Twenty-six runners came around to score against Century by the fourth inning. The old-timer had more than time on his hands during his stint as the snack-bar operator.
