Gold fever. A sickness that can strike otherwise normal people to cause loss of all rational judgment. An affliction that makes thieves out of people who otherwise wouldn't steal, turns country against country and blasts families apart. So says John Miscovich, a modern-day gold miner who has prospected his father's 1910 Alaskan claim for more than seven decades. "Gold is a noble metal and has been respected from Day 1 around the world," said the Alaskan resident, who winters in Orange.

Orange High School snapped its 11-game losing streak in style Saturday night with a 44-0 rout of Santiago in a nonleague game in Garden Grove Stadium. The Orange defense scored the game's first 15 points, and first-year Coach Mark McMahon was content to let running back Paul Maund overpower Santiago. Maund rushed for 188 yards and scored two touchdowns on runs of 95 and 26 yards. With 3:04 left in the first quarter, Santiago punter Francis Chan could only watch the snap sail out of the end zone.

The Pacific Coast League race got tighter Wednesday as Woodbridge High School defeated Orange, 5-3, in a game marred by a postgame brawl at Bellah Field in Irvine. The victory moves Woodbridge (8-4, 13-9) within one game of first-place Orange (9-3, 15-7) and the teams meet again Friday at Orange. As the teams were shaking hands after the game, players from both teams started shouting obscenities at each other. Three fights broke out before the coaches could restore order.

Villa Park High School didn't look as if it would be a challenger for the Century League baseball championship after it opened its season with four straight nonleague losses. But thanks to a six-game winning streak, including Tuesday's 4-0 victory at Santa Ana Valley, Villa Park (7-3, 13-8) is in first place, a game ahead of Canyon and two ahead of Santa Ana, Santa Ana Valley and Foothill. "This team has grown together," said Dave Ochoa, Spartan coach.
