Rick Vanderhook, Cal State Fullerton's baseball coach, has an in-your-face style and an edge - he doesn't mince words. Cody Decker, who played at UCLA when Vanderhook was a Bruins assistant, sums him up in two words: "Insane … genius. " Vanderhook also comes with a look - Philip Seymour Hoffman would nail the role - and is apt to wax poetic about Fullerton baseball with very little prompting: "We're middle-class American and there is nothing wrong with that," he said. And, later: "It's baseball.

 The Southwestern League has turned out to be one of the toughest in Southern California this season, with each victory an immense struggle. So it was no exception on Tuesday, where Vista Murrieta and pitcher J.T. McLellen came through with a 2-0 victory over No. 2-ranked Temecula Valley. McLellan struck out one, walked one and gave up five hits to help Vista Murrieta (13-4, 3-3) come up with a critical league victory over a very strong Temecula Valley (13-4, 4-2) team. Ian Nowak had a single and double and Angel Ortiz also had two hits.

Dozens of students rallied at a meeting of the California State University governing board Wednesday, chanting and hoisting signs that urged the chancellor and trustees to roll back "success fees" that are raising costs on many campuses. More than 100 students marched in front of the police-guarded entrance of the chancellor's Long Beach office shouting, "We got 99 problems and student debt is one," and "No cuts, no fees, education should be free. " Campuses in San Diego and Fullerton recently joined nine others in enacting the fees to help pay for more classes, faculty hiring, counseling and other services.

They are called "student success fees" and they offer the promise of more classes and programs and improved graduation rates for thousands of California State University students. But critics say they are a thinly veiled attempt to shift more education costs to students - without increasing tuition. Campuses in Fullerton, Dominguez Hills, Fresno and San Diego all are considering these charges, ranging from $200 to $500 per semester. If approved, those Cal State campuses will join others in the East Bay, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Northridge, Pomona, San Bernardino, San Jose, San Luis Obispo and San Marcos, which already are charging such fees.

Once the automobile industry began incorporating GPS functions on the same console as a car's sound system, our pleasure in navigating by song, something that goes back to the troubadours of Middle Ages, became endangered. Your dashboard may lead to the best barbecue or nearest diesel fuel, but it won't tell you whether this land is your land. In 2009, composer Eve Beglarian spent four months kayaking and bicycling the length of the Mississippi and simply listened as ol' man river rolled along.

To reach Omaha, where UCLA last season won its first College World Series title, the Bruins survived a Super Regional at Cal State Fullerton against a team that finished with one of the best records in the Titans' storied history. There could be another postseason showdown this season. Fullerton is ranked No. 1 in several preseason polls, UCLA between ninth and 15th. "They deserve to be No. 1," UCLA Coach John Savage said. "In terms of quality and depth, their pitching is just as good or better than it was last season.
