-- Story by Amy R. Spurgeon; photo by Don Leach HE IS Not a pinhead. TO BOWL OR NOT TO BOWL Costa Mesa resident Jose Contreras has been the head mechanic at Kona Lanes in Costa Mesa since 1990. And when you enter the alley's double glass doors off Harbor Boulevard and Mesa Verde, leave your attitude at home. This is his turf. And to abuse the lanes is to disrespect him.
