HUNTINGTON BEACH — It wasn't looking pretty for Ocean View in the early stages of Thursday's girls' basketball nonleague game against Laguna Beach. No, not with the visiting Breakers starting to quickly pull away in the second half — and seemingly comfortably, too, from what had been a close game. The Seahawks were struggling on offense, giving up some easy buckets defensively, and appeared to be heading toward their ninth defeat of the season after digging themselves into an 11-point hole.

An early season girls' water polo showdown between Edison and host Laguna Beach on Tuesday didn't disappoint. In a match that pitted two CIF Division 1 ranked teams, a last-second shot on a designed play by the eighth-ranked Chargers hit the post and sixth-ranked Laguna was able to hold on for an 11-10 nonleague victory. "We came into the game knowing we can compete with them," Edison Coach Diggy Riley said. "It was a game of runs. " Laguna took a 3-2 lead after one quarter and the Breakers still were in front, 8-7, through three quarters.

Tommy Bahama's maxim is, "Life is one long weekend. " Only a fictional character could adopt this as a motto these days, but the folks behind this brand would like to make it a reality … at least when you spend a little time with them, shopping and dining. Their latest endeavor, in Laguna, is offering a more "beachy" approach to the "Bahama" experience. Rather than the faux tropical paradise vibe, they are trying to capture historic Laguna in a casual cafĂ©/bistro rather than a fine dining establishment.

A La Carte has finally bitten the dust. The gourmet takeout restaurant and catering company that we lovingly created in 1986 from a fortune teller's apartment and sold seven years ago, passing through two subsequent owners, is now undergoing a complete transformation in the competent and experienced hands of the Molteni family. We watched with mixed emotions and curiosity because of our special attachment to this space and wanted to talk to them about their plans. Our concerns melted away when we met the engaging and enthusiastic Moltenis.

Earlier in the week, Ocean View football coach Harold Eggers was leery of the Laguna Beach offense which, he said, could score quickly. He and his Seahawks found that to be true Friday at Ocean View. Laguna struck fast — and fairly easily — for scores on its first two possessions. But then Ocean View made some defensive adjustments, rode the running of Timmy Robinson and two big plays by Blake Walker, and took advantage of an injury to Laguna quarterback Austin Paxson, to finish fast for a 36-14 nonleague victory.

The U.S. Open of Surfing is heading into its final weekend at the Huntington Beach Pier. In the thick of it all is Ian "Kanga" Cairns, who many will tell you, was a key figure in bringing the famed contest to where it stands today. At 10 a.m. today, Cairns will be standing outside of Huntington Surf & Sport — actually, he'll also be on all fours, making a lasting impression — at the corner of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway. It's there where the 58-year-old, a Laguna Beach resident since 1991, will be etched into surfing history when he joins the prestigious Surfers' Hall of Fame.
