The Catalina Flyer resumes daily service from Newport Beach to Santa Catalina Island on April 1 with machinery that should give passengers a quieter and smoother ride, the catamaran's owner announced Friday. The 600-seat passenger boat made in 1988, which runs between the Balboa Pavilion and Avalon, was removed from service in mid-September to have its engines replaced. To fill in for the catamaran while the new engines were being installed in Whidbey Island, Wash., the company temporarily rented a 149-seat boat to make the daily sea crossings, owner Armen Gugasian said.

With every kill, every block, every point, Kristin Kelley feels like she has something to prove. For the most part, it's a win-win situation. Sometimes, however, it can get the best of her. A newcomer to the UC Irvine women's volleyball team this season, Kelley, a sophomore transfer from Washington State, is gracing the Anteaters' campus with the hopes of making up what she lost in one year as a Cougar. Her freshman year in Pullman, Wash., last season resulted in abnormally-low numbers -- 1.59 kills per game, .59 blocks per game -- not the sort of statistics the former La Salle High (Pasadena)

Steve Virgen There's a certain comfort expressed between UC Irvine assistant coach Len Stevens and University of Oklahoma Kelvin Sampson. There's a friendship there, as well as camaraderie between UCI Coach Pat Douglass and Sampson. The evidence came Thursday night at a dinner that brought teams together which are in the Sooner Invitational. Douglass, who described UCI as an academic school that has a challenge to find gym time, joked with Sampson, who said, "Pat, we go to school, too."

Don Cantrell One of the most valued lessons in sports was once absorbed by Ted Trompeter when he was a Bee team tackle under the late Les Miller at Harbor High. He assumed it was perfectly alright one afternoon to depart from grid practice and cover an agricultural assignment. He had plans to purchase a jersey calf, but failed to seek permission from the football coach to miss practice. Upon his return, Miller dismissed him from the team. A sympathetic agricultural instructor, Elgin Hall, admired Trompeter's character and chose to ask Miller to review the case.

Claudia Figueroa If you were driving through Newport Beach on Memorial Day and noticed a determined man riding an unusual-looking, high-tech bicycle, it was probably Nick Irons. Although he is not a speed racer--averaging about 20 mph--Irons is pedaling around the perimeter of the United States for a worthwhile cause: to seek a cure for multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease of the central nervous system that afflicted his father when Irons was in his early teens.

Our plans -- albeit loose ones -- never included this six-day stopover. This is our so-called "road trip." Still, whatever is whatever, and here we are. There is so much to see and do here, and it is so easy to just be -- watching and listening. We could stay here another six days, a month, even more and only scratch the surface of possibilities.
