SOUL FOOD For thy dear saints, O Lord, who strove in thee to live, who followed thee, obeyed, adored, our grateful hymn receive. Hymn 124, The Hymnal 1940 I was in Dietrich's waiting for a pound of French Roast coffee to be ground when I heard a woman's voice not far from me say, "She is a saint!" A second woman's voice replied, "I know. I wonder how she does it." "Me, too," said the first voice. "I think it would be an unbearable situation."

The Newport Harbor High girls field hockey team may have lost 14 seniors and its head coach, but the team didn't lose its knack for winning games. The Sailors, who won the Sunset League title for the fourth time in five seasons and reached the final of the Los Angeles Field Hockey Association Tournament of Champions last year, picked up where it left off with a convincing 3-0 victory over Santa Ana High in a scrimmage at Harper School on Tuesday afternoon.

SOUL FOOD "The world is bright with the joyous saints who love to do Jesus' will ... " from "I sing a song of the saints of God," by Lesbia Scott I can remember singing these words when I was a child without giving much thought to how true they might be. In the moment we sang them, I recall, the world was bright indeed. The tune itself is snappy and bright. The verses paint a cheerful picture. "They lived not only in ages past; there are hundreds of thousands still.

Optimism was everywhere when the Bellarmine-Jefferson High football team opened its season with a nonleague game with Santa Clara. The Guards were hoping to ride the success of a 2004 season in which they won their first Santa Fe League championship in 50 years. However, that optimism lasted until the first play of the contest Saturday at Memorial Field. Bell-Jeff wide receiver and defensive end Andrew Loera fumbled an unexpected short kick from Saint place-kicker Alvaro Marin on the game's opening kickoff, dampening the Guards' hopes and helping begin a disappointing night that led to a 21-6 loss.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Ocean View High baseball coach Shane Borowski had a simple, yet all-too accurate description of Alfredo Sepulveda. "He was strike, get up there and throw the next strike, strike, get up there and throw the next strike," Borowski said. "His tempo was excellent." And the Seahawks provided plenty of run support for the sophomore right-hander, too, cruising to a 7-0 Golden West League victory over Santa Ana Friday at Ocean View High. Sepulveda allowed just three hits and one walk, striking out 12 while improving to 5-2. It was the kind of pitching performance that the Seahawks were definitely looking for after suffering a tough 5-4 loss to the Saints on the road Wednesday.

MICHELE MARR In some parts of the country, when Halloween falls on Sunday it's celebrated Saturday evening, so as not to conflict with the community's Christian worship. Not here. In Huntington Beach, when a secular holiday falls on a holy day, the holiday holds the trump card. Last Sunday, many homes in my neighborhood -- and no doubt yours -- were cloaked in cobwebs overhanging a gaggle of jack-o-lanterns and trick-or-treaters; lawns were gardens of skyward-reaching skeletal arms and lopsided tombstones.

I've heard many a Christian remark on the occasion of a moral failing, "Well, I'm no saint." But as Christian scripture would have it, they are nonetheless. The Greek word hagioi, translated as "saints" throughout the New Testament, refers to the whole of God's people, the faithful -- before the birth and ministry of Jesus Christ and after. In this sense, "saint" is a state of being -- of living in God's grace through faith -- not a state of attainment. With the approach of All Saints' Day, I began to read a book I recently got from Paraclete Press titled "The Lure of Saints: A Protestant Experience of Catholic Tradition."

Hirings and firings are common in the fickle world of the National Football League, so coaches' families are used to moving from one city to another at a moment's notice. "This was different," said Cathie Sheppard, whose husband, Mike, began this year as offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints. Hurricane Katrina forced the family out of its New Orleans home of more than three years. After stops in Cleveland, Baltimore, San Diego, Seattle and Buffalo, Cathie Sheppard said the family was enjoying a period of normalcy.
