Americans are not only living longer, they are living better, thanks to healthcare advances and the evolution of supportive living environments which, by design, help people age well. That's the message that The Fountains hopes America will wake up to on March 5, 2003. On that day, Maggie White and Pat Taylor -- the oldest identical twins living in the United States -- will celebrate their 100th birthday! The odds for twins born in 1903 to live to see their 100th birthday are said to be 1 in 700 million.

Marisa O'Neil Three sisters who graduate from Newport Harbor High School today are all approaching the ceremony in their own distinct ways. "I'll probably cry," 18-year-old Kerissa Peters said with a nervous laugh. "I'll probably throw up," her twin, Jessica, worried. "I'm ready to graduate today," their 16-year-old sister Jacqueline Schardt said confidently. While twins graduating in the same class is a given, having a younger sister joining them in caps and gowns doesn't happen every day. But Jacqueline skipped eighth grade, setting up the unusual -- if sometimes difficult -- situation.

Lolita Harper Golf is a gentlemen's sport. A quiet sport of concentration in which announcers whisper and audiences hold their applause until the appropriate times. It is played on a serene setting, with luscious green grass, rolling hills and beautiful trees. Ahhh. Contrast that to the hotel room of Toshiba Senior Classic golfer Tom Purtzer when he travels with his wife, their 7-year-old daughter, 4-year-old twins and 6-month-old twins. You read that correctly: two sets of twins, for a total of five children under the age of 8. "Having that many kids in one hotel room would be like having a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese all the time," Purtzer, 51, said.

MICHAEL ARNOLD GLUECK One of the great slow progresses of our civilization is learning to treat people with disabilities as human beings, not objects of ridicule. Often, Hollywood has been in the forefront. Movies such as "A Beautiful Mind," "Scent of a Woman," "Children of a Lesser God," "Rain Man" and "Forrest Gump" have enriched our understanding of those with mental illness, the visually impaired, the hearing impaired, autism and retardation. We should expect no less in the presentation and dramatization of those who are born as conjoined twins.

Coral Wilson Turning 1 year old may be small accomplishment for most children, but not for twins William and Hayden Hurray.

A year and three months ago, the unborn twins were within a day of being overwhelmed by a rare fetal condition.

A Hill on the hill has been good news for the Orange Coast College baseball team all season. So whether it was Jacob Hill or his identical twin brother David, the Pirates figured to be in good hands against Orange Empire Conference visitor and district rival Golden West on Tuesday. Jacob (9-0 in nine appearances, including eight starts, with a 1.31 earned-run average) is the usual Tuesday starter for Coach John Altobelli. But, having thrown 55 innings, more than the sophomore left-hander has ever compiled, Altobelli said, the OCC brain trust elected to shift David Hill, the typical Thursday starter, up a couple days.

What a difference a year makes. That's what the Costa Mesa Aquatics Club must've been thinking with regard to its 10-and-under water polo team.

UC Irvine junior All-American pitcher Matt Summers has said he would make a motivational target of the first pitcher selected in the major league draft in which he went in the fourth round Tuesday to the Minnesota Twins. The Anteaters' right-hander, who seized Big West Pitcher of the Year honors by going 8-0 in his eight conference starts, has a few more rivals to try to outperform professionally after being the 78th pitcher selected, the 148th overall pick. What's more, Summers saw four Big West pitchers chosen ahead of him, a fact that rankled UCI Coach Mike Gillespie, who has marveled at the development of Summers from inconsistent reliever (an 8.36 ERA in 37 2/3 innings coming into this season)

CORONA DEL MAR — Some kids do it just for the free burgers. But for Derek and Matthew Hanna, sweeping the lunch area at Harbor View Elementary School has become a point of pride. The twin brothers volunteer extra play time each day to help the school custodian clean. They dart from napkin to straw, easing the burden of the janitors and setting an example for their classmates. "It's good for the school," said Derek. "It makes me feel good," added Matthew. Recognizing their service, the Newport-Mesa Unified School District recently presented them a Starfish Award, which is given to students who have "made a difference by contributing a personal or collective effort for the benefit of others.

B runo Campos tells the story of his twin sons' birth with great fondness. It seems Travis and Dylan Campos have always been linked. Before they were born, Travis appeared to have had a perfect path to the birth canal, but Dylan made a move that blocked Travis. The twins' arms were locked. Doctors then performed a C-Section surgery. For the record, Travis was born one minute before Dylan, their father says. The Campos twins have a tight bond for sure. It's as if they know each other thoughts and reactions.
