Like a broken record, the basketball game plays over and over in Carl Franklin's mind. Last March, the Morningside coach watched his team take a 10-point lead early in the fourth quarter of the Southern California Regional Division III finals. But from then on, the Monarchs went cold and ended up losing to Trabuco Hills, 60-57. The Monarchs out-rebounded Trabuco Hills, 49-37, and had four more field goals than the Mustangs. Morningside took 74 shots to Trabuco Hills' 47.

Before the Knopf Field scoreboard at Tustin High School finally stopped recording the damage, the shadows were long and 25 runners had crossed the plate. But that didn't mean Mater Dei and Foothill high schools had stopped playing. A few minutes before sunset Saturday, Mater Dei relief pitcher Jim Doyle got the final out in a 23-5 victory in the championship game of the Newport-Tustin baseball tournament.
There were no excuses by the Servite volleyball team. No cliches about not coming ready to play or a lack of focus on the court. The Friars looked up at the scoreboard after their 15-10, 15-12, 15-7 loss to Redondo Beach Redondo Union in the semifinals of the Southern Section Division II boys' volleyball playoffs Wednesday at Manhattan Beach Mira Costa High, then glanced across the net at the team that beat them and offered one explanation.

The National Park Service can begin dropping thousands of rat-killing pellets on Anacapa Island as part of a program to save rare seabirds, a federal judge ruled Thursday. An animal advocacy group had sought to block the $700,000 black rat eradication program in Channel Islands National Park, contending that the poison pellets would harm other wildlife on the three islets that comprise the island off the Ventura County coast.

A helicopter made a daring landing in the exercise yard of the Santa Fe prison Monday morning, plucking three prisoners from inside the walls and roaring away in a fusillade of gunfire. In the hours that followed, a drama was acted out that included high-speed chases in the air and on the ground, and a manhunt in the densely wooded river bottom of the Rio Grande, which runs through this small community south of Albuquerque.
