NEWPORT BEACH — Joe Ozaki of Japan played in the first round of the Toshiba Classic on Friday not knowing his family's status after a massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit his homeland. He figured they'd be OK because someone would've gotten in touch with him if there was trouble. Ozaki, whose home is in Tokyo, spoke with his wife, Yoshie, Friday night, helping him put his mind at ease. It also helped him make a jump from tied for 15th to tied for third after a second-round-best seven-under-par 64 on Saturday at Newport Beach Country Club.

STEVE SMITH The loudest fireworks you'll hear this three-day weekend won't be from the safe-and-sane version that happy residents of Costa Mesa will be exploding on Monday. The noise will be from residents all over the Southland who are outraged at the disappearance of dunes along a stretch of West Newport Beach. In case you missed it: In April, someone or some people (I suspect the latter) are suspected of secretly hiring people and equipment to flatten the dunes in West Newport Beach to improve the view of the ocean from the ground floor of their expensive beachfront homes.

Often when a catastrophe hits a person or a nation, they cry out: "How could a loving God allow such a thing to happen?" When a tragedy is absent of reason, people will often turn to religious figures for explanation and comfort. Even for us (religious leaders), it is very difficult to explain the reasons why God does what he does, because humankind is limited in his or her understanding and does not know what the future holds. For some, events that seem tragic and difficult to comprehend may be a blessing in disguise.

College baseball teams are not unfamiliar with the occasional road trip. But Vanguard University, a private Christian school in Costa Mesa, is taking the concept to a bit of an extreme. A party of 10 Lions players, two alumni, Coach Scott Mallernee and assistant Randy Wishmyer, as well as an American-born Vanguard student who attended high school in Indonesia, boarded a 22-hour flight Saturday to begin a two-week missionary visit to Indonesia. The group flew out of LAX bound for a quick stopover in Taipai, Taiwan, before reaching the city of Jakarta.

Newport native Clark Beek describes himself as the unluckiest of sailors. He’s survived dengue fever in Costa Rica, amoebic dysentery in India and three tsunamis. Beek left Newport Harbor for what he though would be a one-year sailing trip in 1999 at age 29 after a fast-paced career at a start-up Internet company during the dot-com boom left him with a bad taste in his mouth. He returned about a week ago after a nearly 10-year voyage around the world no richer, but with a nice tan and a thousand stories.

"And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. " — I Kings 19:12 (KJV) Recently, I've answered many questions from readers about God and evil. Many people wanted to know how a good and powerful God could be reconciled with the profound and proliferating instances of evil in the world. Now, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan has sent shudders across our planet — and our lives — putting a bloody edge to such agonizing questions about God and goodness.
