Division I-II as well as Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week laurels. The 6-foot-7 Wilson led his team to two road wins over nationally-ranked opponents last week, including an upset of then-No. 2 Pepperdine.

NEWPORT BEACH — Cori Chapin smiled as she opened an envelope with a check for $10,000. “I have never seen that much money before,” the Estancia High senior said moments after posing for a photo with the check. Chapin, a soccer player for the Eagles, was one of two Toshiba Classic scholarship winners honored during a breakfast at the Newport Beach Hotel Marriott and Spa Tuesday morning. Chapin was picked among, “over hundreds of applicants for the scholarship,” said Mark Simons, president and CEO of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. Being involved in clubs, as well as competing in three sports, including cross country, soccer and track and field, made Chapin’s resume stand out. But there’s also a back story to Chapin that certainly helped her chances.

Lucas Campanaro has had plenty of help since he was diagnosed with cancer, but these days, his family needs more help than ever. The 17-year-old Costa Mesa-born surfer and former Newport Harbor High School student was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer of connective tissues, and he has been going through frequent chemotherapy mostly ever since. In 2006, his classmates in the school’s Make-a-Wish club raised more than $4,000 to send Campanaro to Hawaii with his family, where he was able to surf those legendary waves during a time the disease seemed at bay. But now a different kind of fundraiser is going on as the illness has come back with a grim prognosis.

Kimberly O'Donnell graduated from Harvard University last year and ran in the 2012 Boston Marathon. She has a strong connection with Boston. When the Boston Marathon bombings occurred last month, she immediately called friends and former roommates in the race. She stayed at home in Santa Cruz, Calif. instead of going to work because she was too worried. The 23-year-old was among several who ran Sunday's OC Marathon in honor of the tragedy and terror that struck Boston last month.

Here’s a conversation starter: The University of California was selfish this year. More than 10,000 high school students are stuck in limbo right now, waiting with bated breath for the ever-so-slight possibility they have a chance of admission to the UC institution that wait-listed them. In a completely self-serving move, the UC chose to implement a wait-list system that selective private universities have been using for years. This decision was made in the same year that one in four UC admits was an out-of-state or international applicant.

After five years of observation, UCI researchers have used a new technique to find what they believe are the oldest large supernovae ever detected. Cosmologist Jeff Cooke, the lead researcher on the project, said the discovery has the potential to help scientists understand how galaxies form and change over time because the method used to detect the stellar explosions allows them to look back to the formative years of the universe. “When you go back in time you’re seeing a cleaner, smaller universe,” Cooke said.

One of the knocks I’ve heard from some of the louder voices in Costa Mesa is newspaper staffers who don’t live in the city can’t possibly know the issues Costa Mesa faces and really should just shut up about it. I remember even being told this by someone who is now a member of the City Council, who took me to task for not living here, saying I really didn’t have the right to comment on Costa Mesa issues. So I find it amusing there are whispers on blogs and e-mails to me about one of our most recent reporter hires, Alan Blank.
