Mike Sciacca As a child growing up in the Big Apple during the 1960s, David Shostak recalls sitting in front of his family's television set and watching the New York City Marathon. "I can remember sitting and watching it, thinking it was pretty amazing," said Shostak, 51. "I was athletic but never a runner. I just enjoyed watching the big spectacle that it was." Shostak, a Huntington Beach resident for the past 22 years, will return home to run the prestigious marathon on Nov. 2. The 26.2-mile course constitutes a start on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in Staten Island and continues through the four other boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan, where the finish line will be set up in Central Park.

ANAHEIM — The game ended suddenly, maybe too much so after Huntington Beach High waited 105 years to get into a CIF baseball championship game. But after Sean Guite’s potential RBI single was erased by the leaping Crespi second baseman, there was no time left Saturday afternoon at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The Oilers made history this year but came up a game short of a title as they fell to Crespi of Encino in the Division II championship game, 8-1. Huntington Beach was left thoroughly frustrated after the game, and Guite’s last out seemed appropriate enough.

Mike Sciacca The rumors began to swirl around the running community about a month ago. But judging by the massive throng of people who stood at the starting line of Sunday's Pacific Shoreline Marathon, those rumors turned out to be untrue, unfounded and utter nonsense. "There was word out there that the Pacific Shoreline Marathon was canceled and would not be run again," said Don Gerould, who, along with business partner Amy Tomchak, took over ownership of what is Orange County's biggest marathon, at the same time the rumors began to run rampant.

I am currently training to run in the Orange County Marathon on Jan. 8 while pushing my daughter, Paige, in an adaptive stroller. Paige is the younger of my two daughters and has cerebral palsy. I have two goals for the marathon: One is to raise money and awareness for United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County, one of the children's charities that will benefit from the OC Marathon. I have been active on the Board of Directors since 2001, and I am very fortunate to have the resources to provide therapy and other opportunities for my daughter -- but not everyone is so fortunate.

Dan Kalmick remembers some of the criticism of his unsuccessful run for Congress as a 25-year-old businessman: “Why don’t you run for City Council instead?” Now he is. Kalmick announced Wednesday he is running for City Council, citing a base of support from his congressional run that demanded he get into the race. The four-year Huntington Beach resident and homeowner said he hopes to represent a new perspective from a younger generation. Three seats will be up for grabs in November, including the one Mayor Debbie Cook — his former primary opponent — will leave behind because she is termed out. Kalmick described his major concerns as similar to those he raised in his run for Congress: a better transportation system, environmental protection, and preparing for economic lean times.

Gavin Kells in a relief pitching stint shut down the surging Knights to lead the Hot Rods to a 13-9 victory in an Ocean View Little League Minor A Division game. Kells inherited a grim situation when he took over pitching duties in the third inning. The Knights had already scored eight runs, had a runner on base and were threatening to score more, but Kells kept the Knights in check the rest of the way. He allowed no runs on just one hit in 3 1/3 innings and struck out six. The first three innings of the game provided plenty of fireworks as the teams combined for 18 runs.

Trystan Huynh stared intently at the field in front of him and did his best to mimic a raging bull before it charges, kicking up dirt from underneath his feet. He and hundreds of other children had the same glassy-eyed stare Saturday as they gazed at the pieces of candy scattered across a field at the Huntington Beach Central Park Sports Complex. "I like the round candy," said Trystan, 3, of Westminster, as he continued to look at the sweets in the grass and fiddle with his pail.

Huntington Beach High girls' basketball Coach Russ McClurg figured his team would face a tall order in Ventura, the Oilers' CIF Southern Section semifinal opponent Tuesday. He was right. Visiting Ventura worked its inside game and went to its veterans throughout the Division 1A showdown, and the second-seeded Cougars pulled away to score a 60-41 victory over the third-seeded Oilers. Huntington led early but the Cougars, led in the middle by 6-foot-1 senior center Cassandra McCambridge, 5-11 senior forward Marki Meyer and 5-9 senior forward Kayalin Akens-Matthews-Irby, were able to build a double-digit midway through the second quarter.
