Young Chang Mervin Goldstein says "good" and "nice" like they're the two best words in the English language. Denzel Washington is nice. Vacationing with family is good. Friends are nice, the view from his hilltop home is nice, painting is good. The aphasic Newport Coast artist never says something is "bad." Ethan Goldstein guesses that his 58-year-old father may be happier now than when he was a fully-mobile plastic surgeon who loved to speed in his little black Porsche -- a luxury from his childhood dreams -- before suffering a stroke four years ago. Carol Goldstein says she can barely get her husband to sit still nowadays, with all the dinners, movies, shows and basketball games that book most their nights.

FOR THE RECORD A story Tuesday, "City sued for negligence by stroke victim," contained incorrect information in a subheadline. The man seeking damages for being denied medical treatment was arrested on suspicion of public drunkenness, not driving under the influence. . . . . . A man arrested by Costa Mesa police on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol is now suing the city for negligence, saying he was instead having a stroke and police denied him medical treatment.

Local surfers took to the waves on Saturday to raise money for a friend who lost the ability to speak after suffering a massive stroke earlier this year. Proceeds from the event will go to help Newport Beach Native Alan Halderman, 53, pay for physical therapy and living expenses. In May, Halderman collapsed on a dock after suffering a stroke while vacationing in Catalina. The stroke damaged the part of Halderman’s brain that governs communication, leaving him with a disorder known as aphasia.

For weeks, nobody knew exactly what happened in the minutes before Newport Beach resident Alan Halderman collapsed on a dock in Catalina, where he was vacationing, after suffering a massive stroke. Halderman, 53, was wearing swim trunks when he collapsed and had left his wallet back on his boat, anchored just off shore. The stroke damaged the part of Halderman’s brain that governs communication, leaving him with a disorder known as aphasia. Halderman couldn’t tell anyone who he was or what had happened, because he couldn’t talk.

Barry Faulkner One hundred yards of froth and fury, splashing and surging suds. For most spectators, swim sprinters can simply disappear beneath the residue of their talent as they propel themselves through the pool. Sometimes, their talent can even get lost in the exertion needed to pull and kick their way between the buoys that separate them from their competitors, all done to the staccato ticking of the stopwatch against which they are constantly measured.

UC Irvine biologists say they have found a human-produced protein that could help people recover their motor function after suffering a stroke, school officials said. The separate studies, published in the journal Neuroscience and the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases, respectively, claim mice who had strokes repair nearly all of their motor function a month after receiving the protein. The protein, transforming growth factor alpha, plays a critical role in development and tissue formation from conception to old age. When the protein was injected into the stroke-suffering mice’s brains, they recovered 99% of their motor skills, one study showed.

Going into the final round of the 20th Toshiba Classic, Fred Couples didn't think he could win the tournament because Bernhard Langer had been so hot. But on Sunday at Newport Beach Country Club, Couples grabbed momentum on his back nine to give himself an opportunity. Still a victory wasn't close to being secured because at one point nine golfers had held or shared the lead. Six were tied for the lead with three holes remaining. But Couples shot a five-under-par 66 in his final round and finished at 15-under 198 to become the second player in Toshiba Classic history to win the event twice, as he won it in 2010.
