There were a few tears shed, a few blank stares, and a few faint - if not forced, smiles on the faces of the 12 Ocean View Little League Majors Division All-Star players late last Thursday night, but the one thing there was plenty of in the aftermath of the heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Hazel Dell Little League of Vancouver, Wash. in the championship game of the 2000 Western Regional, was praise. It came from all directions as a group of family, friends, and well-wishers formed an impromptu arc, as if to surround their wounded, shield them from what had happened, just a few feet away.

Another round of alcohol-related discussions dominated the Huntington Beach Downtown Task Force meeting Thursday as the committee talked about the possibility of new rules for bars, restaurants and liquor stores in the area. The city would accomplish this by passing a "deemed approved" ordinance, which would tack on another layer of regulations focusing on nuisance-based problems. A number of California cities and counties are adopting such ordinances as a means of having more enforcement tools to use against "grandfathered" businesses.

Ever since their heroic efforts after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, it was hard to imagine the respect for firefighters climbing any higher. That was until last month, when wind-whipped wildfires swept through Southern California hillsides and forests, turning once scenic landscape and homes into cinder and killing some 20 people. Again, firefighters had to dig deep and perform miracles in sometimes unimaginable situations. They fought the flames valiantly and did their level best to save homes and human lives from a fiery destruction.

SAN BERNARDINO — After such a long journey came to an end, members of the Ocean View Little League 9-and-10-year-old All-Stars were smiling. They will remember the fun of staying at a hotel together in-between games. They will remember the joy of getting to the Little League Sub-Division III South championship game. In a year when few thought they could make a return journey to that point, Ocean View won District 62 and Section 10 titles. “We really didn’t think we would win sectionals,” said third baseman Justin Cianca.
