Some justice in emptied pocketbook While it is a bit of a stretch, I have heard something positive from Gregory Haidl's various alleged antics. At the very least, his parents will be parting with hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars, in legal fees. Some might object to who gets the money, but at least it is costing them something. Despite reportedly having been wealthy, coming up with a million or two in cash might pose a burden, hopefully a heavy one, if there is any justice.

S.J. CAHN One big piece of news Monday kicked off the Toshiba Senior Classic. Jake Rohrer, who has been a co-chairman of the annual PGA Champions Tour event for eight years, is retiring after this year's event, ending 25 years of involvement in charitable golf tournaments benefiting Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian. His work stretches back to the old Crosby Southern Pro-Am and includes ties with Taco Bell before taking on Toshiba as the event's title sponsor.

Ryan Boulger used to resemble the hulking football linemen with whom he still socializes. And, not long ago, he could match his bean-bag-bodied buddies’ ability to turn a trip to Taco Bell into a pile of empty wrappers, soiled napkins, taco droppings, as well as the accumulated drippings of hot sauce, soda and nacho cheese. “I still crave Taco Bell,” said the Costa Mesa High senior, who has, with less than a year of determination, reshaped his body and refined his skills on the baseball diamond to help the Mustangs remain in position to defend the Orange Coast League title he helped them win last year.

It's probably not right to have visions of cuisine when exercising, but it is excusable, I believe, when that food is served at Taco Mesa. One, it is right down the street from the gym I go to, and two, it is a miracle I don't think about this food all the time. This is one of the most unique Mexican restaurants I have ever visited and always my first choice when I am in Costa Mesa. Unfortunately, my workout partner, Tania, has the same mindset, so we are useless to each other from a willpower standpoint.

Golfers expect to pack their bags later this afternoon at the Newport Beach Country Club as the eighth annual Toshiba Senior Classic runs its course. Five years ago, those involved with the event feared it may have run its course due to management problems. Since co-chairmen Hank Adler and Jake Rohrer took over the reins at that juncture, the event has raised $3.4 million for the Hoag Hospital Foundation. In 2000, the event became the Senior Tour's first stop to raise $1 million.

"Where's the beef?" could become another fast-food restaurant's motto. A class-action lawsuit filed in federal court says there's not enough meat in Irvine-based Taco Bell's offerings to qualify as beef. The plaintiff is identified as Amanda Obney of California, and the suit was filed recently in the U.S. District Court in the Central District, Southern Division, in Santa Ana. Her lawyers are with the firm Blood Hurst & O'Reardon of San Diego. The class-action suit, which does not ask for money, objects to Taco Bell calling its products "seasoned ground beef or seasoned beef, when in fact a substantial amount of the filling contains substances other than beef.
