Mary A. Castillo If someone gave you three to five seconds to figure out in your head what 58 times 526 was -- could you do it? A team of four sixth-graders at Mesa View Middle School are in training to do just that and more. Led by coach Pat Murphy, the team -- Piero Remedios, Chris Murphy, Garret Shinn and Kelly Self -- have been coming in twice a week during lunch to drill in mental mathematics, estimations, logic and construction. They will compete with more than 500 students in the 2002 Mathematical Field Day this Saturday.

Veronica Duran When they started meeting for lunch 30 years ago, Rose Bouza, Irene James, Kim Wetmore and Tommie Rovano used to hit restaurants like Coco's, Mimi's Cafe and Marie Callender's. The four said they have been to about 90 different restaurants together -- never the same one twice -- including the Ritz Carlton in Newport Beach to commemorate Bouza's and James' birthdays. "We have stuck together through thick and thin," said James, a Huntington Beach resident.

The state Department of Education has released income criteria for free or reduced-price student meals during the 2009-10 school year. Households will be asked to fill out an application listing their income level in order to qualify. Qualification is based on household size and relative income. For example, a family of four must earn no more than $28,665 to qualify for free lunch, breakfast or milk, or $40,973 to qualify for reduced-price lunch or breakfast. Households that already receive Food Stamp, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP or FDPIR benefits may not have to fill out an application for the program.

Back in April, I was fortunate enough to be a judge at the 2005 Taste of Huntington Beach. My vote for "best bite" went to the crab cakes so elegantly served up by the Palm Court restaurant. These delectable creations also won the favor of other judges and were voted the "best taste." The crab cakes, being so wondrous, left me longing to try more of the Palm Court's offerings. Over the next several months I brainstormed ways of procuring sufficient funding in order to dine at a place where a pastrami sandwich fetches $15. Do I bankrupt my secret poker stash for one meal?

DINING OUT Looking for the little bistro you've never forgotten since you visited Italy? Look no more. It's been cloned, and that great Italian food is being prepared by chef/owner Dino Ferraro at Capone's Cucina, in the center of the big strip of stores and cafes at Beach Boulevard and Adams Avenue in the Newland Center. Chef Dino cooks Italian at lunch, and Executive Chef Francois Lieutaud prepares the fine French dining in the evening. It was lunch for us -- not a quick affair, since every dish is prepared when ordered, but well worth the extra time.

One of the best bargains in Orange County is the lunchtime prix fixe "Spontanee" menu at Marche Moderne in South Coast Plaza. It is also, in my opinion, the best restaurant in the O.C. The excellent three-course meal costs only $25. The meal usually begins with soup or salad and ends in dessert, with a choice of two main courses in the middle. The menu changes daily. My favorite dining companion ordered the "Spontanee" menu, and I opted for two appetizers and a dessert. The first course was a brilliant composed salad of baby artichokes, tomatoes and frisee lettuce topped with shaved coppa ham and dressed with a light Meyer lemon vinaigrette.

An oversized check was presented to the City Council on Monday with enough money to keep the community swim programs at the Huntington Beach High School Aquatic Facility open for the rest of the year. The community held a swim-a-thon in December to raise the $8,500 needed to close the budget gap and keep the pool open for the residents. “We hope that you take this as another message of how important these aquatic programs are,” said Sylvia Garrett, one of the event coordinators.

The bell rings at 12:15 p.m. I walk out of class to find the shortest lunch line. Yes! There is a line with only 15 people in it — that’s only like a 20-minute wait — so I hurry up and buy my Pizza Hut Personal Pizza, two cookies and a soda for $4 and take it back to “our spot” to meet up with my friends who got stuck in longer lines. This is a normal lunch day for many students at Huntington Beach High School. What’s wrong with this picture?

My lunches have been getting a little stale. I seem to be visiting the same places and was in desperate need of expanding my rotation. Lunch to me, and I am sure to others, is often an afterthought — food to wolf down as we take a break from work. Often I am eating in the car going to an appointment, so my choices are never very good. I despise fast food, but am often forced to eat it for its convenience. I figured, though, there had to be a better way to spend a half-hour than chomping on a cheeseburger.

On a trip to New York in 1988, my wife and I were in midtown Manhattan when the lunch hour arrived. For most of us, that's a casual time of day, when we take a little time to relax before completing the rest of our duties. Not in Manhattan. In Manhattan, the lunch hour is a race against the clock and your fellow man. The loser is the person who did not get his or her order in at the deli in time, or who did not bring sneakers in order to get in some power shopping.

Rows of smiling grandmothers and grandfathers faced a congregation of St. Finbar School students Friday who raised their hands to them in a prayer of blessing during Mass that celebrated Grandparents Day. Grandparents of St. Finbar students were invited to attend an all-school Mass. They were treated to a special lunch and had the chance to visit their grandchildren's classrooms and teachers. "I want to show you everything!" 5-year-old Hunter Goffin told her grandmother Gerry Goffin, who took a day off work to attend the celebration.
