"Spring is God thinking in gold, laughing in blue, and speaking in green." -- FRANK JOHNSON Spring has certainly sprung where I live. Although it seemed like the sun and the warmth played tug of war with the cold, wind and the rain the last few weeks and months, it is officially spring, according to my calendar. As I write this column, the sun is playing peek-a-boo with the clouds and I've just came in from a brisk and refreshing morning walk.

AVIVA GOELMAN Most of us are well acquainted with the old spring saying: "Sweet April showers do spring May flowers." That the Costa Mesa Senior Center continues to bloom as an invaluable home of services and relationships for our community's seniors is directly due to our own "sweet April showers." They are our volunteers. What better time than Spring, the season of new life and renewal, to acknowledge the extraordinary service of the volunteers who serve the senior center.

"You make me feel so young, you make me feel like spring is sprung." Actually, you don't. It's a song. Music by Joseph Myrow, lyrics by Mack Gordon, 1946, if you care. But care or not, spring is sprung and that is that. Personally, I like it. I'm a big fan of the fringe seasons, spring and fall. Fall wins, but spring is a blast. It bursts on the scene with all that rebirth-revitalize- re-energized stuff. The trees and the flowers are what do it. It's amazing how fast it happens.

Around 40 players came out for Corona del Mar High's spring football practice and Dick Freeman was cool with the turnout. "You can put it that way," said Freeman, sounding relaxed until he was asked why the low numbers. "Some of the guys who played lacrosse [this spring] are not coming out. Maybe they're tired." The numbers were down 15 from what Freeman expected, but the long-time coach was just thrilled to see one player running again as the Sea Kings wrapped the final day of spring ball Friday.

Barry Faulkner COSTA MESA - Though there is no contact allowed, the Costa Mesa High football team is undergoing a bit of a crash course, as spring drills continue through June 7. The Mustangs, enjoying a greater comfort zone under second-year head man Dave Perkins, are learning on both sides of the ball, but focusing primarily on a return to the flex defense, which the team abandoned early in last year's 7-4 season....

The stunning contemporary Bottega Veneta boutique at South Coast Plaza closed to the public last Thursday evening for a cocktail reception to introduce its spring 2014 line. In-store events in recent years have become serious social, business and charitable gatherings. In one sense, such parties are something of a cultural phenomenon. Who turns out, what charitable causes benefit, how the retail and business communities react to the product on display all add up. Success is often measured by the number of guests taking out the American Express Platinum Card to validate the experience.

Q: What do you do when you're entering the last quarter of your life and feel you've accomplished nothing and haven't met God's expectations of you? No one seems to have a good answer to this. — J.D., Williston Park, N.Y. via a handwritten letter on notepaper with a skating snowman in one corner and mailed in an envelope with a stamp *** A: Thank you for one of the best questions I've ever received! Let me begin by suggesting that your question already contains the seeds of the answer you seek: You understand that God created you. This is the most important spiritual truth you could possibly believe and you already believe it. The best definition I've ever heard of the ubiquitous word "spirituality" is "life lived in the presence of God. " You're already a spiritual person because you believe you're living in the presence of God. This means you already believe you're not merely a material piece of meat and goo, but rather a being with a soul.

For the first time in four years, the Coast Community College District will host winter intersession classes and expand spring course options at its three colleges. Intersession, the semester between the fall and spring terms, was eliminated in 2009 when the district was forced to reduce offerings at its three colleges - Orange Coast, Golden West and Coastline - to combat crippling budget reductions from the state, said John Weispfenning, vice president of instruction at OCC. "We eliminated it to try to keep the cuts away from primary semesters," he said.

The Newport-Mesa girls' U10 Yellow Tigers soccer team won the Spring AYSO Regions 57, 97 and 120 Tournament Championship on Sunday. The team, coached by Eric Rans and David Heaslip, had a solid season but due to some late-game losses came into the tournament championship as the No. 7 seed. On Saturday, the Newport-Mesa girls handily outscored two teams from Corona del Mar, 9-1, earning a spot in the semifinals on Sunday. In the semifinal game, despite falling behind early, 1-0, the Tigers roared back with three straights goals from forwards Fiona Batstone, Bridget Walton and Sofia Rans, eventually winning the game, 3-2. In the afternoon championship game, the Tigers again fell behind early but the bend-but-don't-break defensive team effort led by Sydney Anderson, Hannah Barrett, Mary Grace Anderson, Mary Kelly and twins Shea and Holly Heaslip, kept the Tigers in the game until the offense woke up in the final quarter.
