Boosted by strong sales in its first financial quarter, Boeing Co. beat analysts' estimates largely due to an increased production rate of commercial jetliners. The Chicago aerospace giant reported a profit of $965 million, or $1.28 a share. That's down 12.7% from last year's first-quarter profit of $1.11 billion, or $1.44 a share. Boeing attributed the fall to a $330-million write-off related to changes in its pension plans and a one-time tax credit in 2013. The company's core earnings -- excluding retirement costs and the write-off -- rose to $1.76 per share, up from $1.73 during the same period a year ago. Analysts had expected core profit of $1.56 per share.

Huntington Beach High has been waiting patiently for the arrival of Hagen Danner, one of the stars from the 2011 Little League World Series championship team. Now that he's a freshman, Danner is living up to the hype. So what if Edison players were yelling from the dugout in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and two outs on Wednesday trying to pressure the 15-year-old pitcher who's already committed to UCLA. "The kid has pitched in front of the world," Huntington Beach Coach Benji Medure said.
