The USA Strikers got even with the Portuguese Hot Sauce Saturday with a 2-1 victory in AYSO boys' Under-10 Division play. Earlier in the season, the Strikers lost to the Hot Sauce. Following a scoreless first quarter, Strikers forward Drew Truxaw found an open Walker Thurston, who in turn sent a powerful shot into the net to give his squad a 1-0 lead. A few minutes later, Hot Sauce defender Jordan Thomas came up with a steal, passed off to halfback Garrett Babbitt, who then sent a deep pass to Logan Steinle.

I hold essay contests for students at the Orange County Conservation Corps who would like to go on a field trip with me. I choose two winners based on the quality of their essays and two from a random drawing of entrants. That way, all have a chance of attending, regardless of their English skills. I recently took four winners on a field trip to Mission San Juan Capistrano. The students were to learn about early California history and the lifestyles of the padres, Spanish soldiers, and Native Americans during the Mission Era. My first-place winner was Michael Martinez, known to students and teachers alike as SpongeBob.

As a career airline pilot, Lt. Bill Dickey spent most of his time out of the public eye. But when the opportunity arose to show off his looks, Bill Dickey jumped at the chance. His employer, Trans World Airlines, featured him in a company commercial in which he pinned miniature plastic wings on a child's shirt. "He loved to fly," said Don Dickey, Bill's brother. "He enjoyed taking his friends on board. He fell in love with the air." A decorated World War II hero, Bill Dickey died Aug. 3 of Alzheimer's disease.

Dave Brooks Andrew Carter has traded in the rock arena for the coffee shop. Once a major label contender with two Orange County pop bands, the 31-year-old Surf City native now finds himself hawking his latest self-produced album at open mike nights and neighborhood taverns; the thundering applause of a night club replaced by a few appreciative handclaps and the occasionally nod. His new band andrewesley -- his...

My wife and I went down to Main Street one Sunday afternoon. When we first got there I met one of the merchants who was complaining about how filthy our Downtown was. I was kidding him that he must be exaggerating. We took off to inspect all of Main Street from the third block to Pacific Coast Highway. What a filthy sight -- trash in the street and all over the sidewalks, cigarette butts by the hundreds in front of Starbucks and the Sugar Shack Cafe, sidewalks that look like they haven't been cleaned for ages and trash in the shrubberies.
