"When we succeed in truly thanking God, we feel good at heart. The reason is that we have been created to give glory to God, now and forevermore. And every time we do so, we feel that we are in harmony with His plans and purpose for our lives. Then we are truly in our element. That is why it is so blessed." -- O. Hallesby I was so excited that I could hardly sleep. I could still eat, though, and I ate plenty. The lack of the first and the abundance of the second will catch up with me, but I'll deal with that later.

If Athena Vasquez was looking for a challenge in college, she couldn't have picked a better one than going to the University of Wisconsin. The Badgers weren't nobodies in the collegiate softball world, having gone to the NCAA tournament twice prior to the Newport Harbor High graduate's arrival in 2004. But the thought of the frozen tundra of Wisconsin as a softball destination was a foreign one back then, and even now when Vasquez and her teammates venture to the West Coast. "I think we're the underdogs going into most games," Vasquez said.

Normally I write about the problem issues of the day; high gas prices, political shenanigans and governmental snafus. During this political season you hear a lot about what is wrong with America. But on the birthday weekend of this great nation, I want to write about what is great about America. Two hundred and thirty-two years ago in a hot and humid hall, 56 men of great stature pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to declare our independence from England. What they gave us was liberty.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, hero to small-government conservatives and villain to organized labor, is stopping by conservative bastion Newport Beach on Thursday while he visits Southern California for the Rose Bowl game. In any other year, the governor of a state represented in The Granddaddy of Them All wouldn't bring much reaction from locals outside of a friendly welcome. But Walker is facing a sustained recall effort from constituents who have targeted him after, in an effort to help balance the state's budget, he successfully pulled back some collective-bargaining rights for state workers.

SOUTH COAST PLAZA — Even A.J. Backer's friends might not recognize her these days. Prior to January, anyone who saw her walking around town or on campus at Marquette University in Milwaukee would have seen her in baggy sweats and oversized shirts, but not anymore. The 21-year-old college student made her way around South Coast Plaza on Wednesday looking stylish in a red top, jeans and heels. She and four other former fashion victims shopped for new outfits for a future episode of the reality makeover series "How Do I Look?"
