It was a little more than happenstance that brought Sonja Akkerman from New Zealand to play for the Cal Baptist women's basketball team four seasons ago. Coach Dave King says it was a case of having a good contact in the field. Akkerman, a 6-foot-2 forward who leads the NAIA District 3 with an average of 23.5 points and 13.4 rebounds, said she had a longstanding desire to play in the United States but didn't have a connection.

At least six people were killed and 12 others injured Monday night in a fiery collision near Bishop involving a van carrying athletes from California Baptist University in Riverside, authorities said. The van was one of three university vehicles heading northbound on U.S. Highway 395 about five miles south of Bishop when a Ford SUV traveling in the opposite direction lost control shortly after 8 p.m. The SUV smashed into one of the vans and burst into flames, said Officer Dennis Cleland of the California Highway Patrol.

WHEN it comes to mascots, California colleges have a bounty of Bulldogs (the University of Redlands and Fresno State, for example) and lots of Lancers (Pasadena City College and California Baptist University). There's a herd of Mustangs (the Master's College and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo), and the horsemen to go with them (Vaqueros at Glendale Community College and Gauchos at Saddleback College).

Riverside wants a more upscale image, but is getting little help from the Banana Republics of the world. The city badly wants to lure higher-end shops and restaurants to the area, including Crate and Barrel, Restoration Hardware and P.F. Chang's, but has found the effort to be a tough sell. Those retailers depend on market studies when deciding where to open shops, and Riverside rarely makes the cut.

It's a clip from Aug. 23's Hollywood Bowl performance by Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth. The tiny belter, best known for her role as Glinda in "Wicked," was accompanied by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. But the show was stolen by an unassuming voice teacher from Riverside.

When Sheyenne Reyes was growing up in Riverside she could always find a seat on the public bus. Reyes is 21 now, and while waiting for the Route 1 line to take her to work last week, the college student lamented that these days the bus often "gets too crowded to the point where some people have to stand up - they stumble a little bit" as the bus rushes from one stop to another. Standing nearby with his wife and infant daughter, 24-year-old Trayvor Chandlis said that he's looking for work and that his family rides the bus because of high gas prices.
