The first time Joe Jennings and Rob Harris jumped out of an airplane they felt a rush so strong that when they landed, each plunked down his credit card to do it again. Little did they know where that first jump would take them. Jennings, 33, and Harris, 28, were the sky-surfing champions at the ESPN Extreme Games and held the 1994 world title before that. Sky surfing is free-fall sky-diving taken to the max.

A massive suspension that had sidelined more than 700 Little League baseball players in Newport Beach has been lifted and games will be allowed to resume. A dispute between adults -- those in the league and those in the group that oversees it -- had resulted in the cancellation of two games for the young players. Joe Jennings, a board member for Newport Beach Little League, told the Daily Pilot that the punishment seemed like an “extreme action that has been harsh for so many kids.” District officials, who oversee the league and others in Orange County, handed down the suspension after determining that the league had too many coaches serving on its board of directors.

When Joe Jennings jumps out of an airplane 13,000 feet above Rhode Island next week, he will turn on his camera and focus on his new partner, Patrick de Gayardon, who will be plummeting toward earth at 120 mph with his feet strapped to a board, performing a fast-paced routine for nearly a minute before deploying his parachute. But with Jennings in spirit, he hopes, will be another popular skydiver, his former partner and best friend, Rob Harris.

More than 700 Little League baseball players have been sidelined in Newport Beach: The city's entire league was suspended for having too many coaches on its board. The league was suspended Wednesday, forcing the cancellation of Thursday and Saturday games for hundreds of Little League players. Joe Jennings, a board member for Newport Beach Little League, told the Daily Pilot that the punishment seemed like an “extreme action that has been harsh for so many kids.” Little League rules say coaches can't total more than half the number of people on the board, according to Jennings.

It wasn't supposed to happen to Rob Harris. Not this way. Not to this expert sky diver who logged thousands of jumps, who was a world-champion sky surfer, who had parlayed that envelope-pushing sport into numerous commercials, who was scrupulous about safety. Harris wasn't supposed to die three days before his 29th birthday. It was a by-the-books jump for a soft-drink commercial, a maneuver he had done a number of times. A walk in the park.

"The Wild Pair" (citywide) from all outward appearances has the smell of a contemporary movie cop partnership. One instinctively knows that Joe Jennings (Beau Bridges) and Benny Avalon (Bubba Smith) have spent years exchanging endlessly bright, glib banter while defying more death threats than a film critic has eaten tubs of popcorn. The good news is that this first look is indeed deceiving.

California's Youth Baseball All-Stars will make it to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., after all, thanks to members of the state Legislature. A week ago, the situation looked bleak. The company holding fund-raising proceeds from 33 competing state teams had folded without paying $165,000 in tournament fees. To the California team's rescue came Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach) and 33 other legislators.

In its size and repertory, Chanticleer falls somewhere between the traditional college men's glee club and the barbershop quartet. The San Francisco-based, 12-voice male vocal ensemble, which is sometimes called America's version of England's King's Singers, will make a rare appearance tonight in UC San Diego's Mandeville Auditorium.
