John Shanahan seems incredibly confident for a chief executive who has placed his company in bankruptcy, laid off 400 workers and seen his Hooked on Phonics learn-to-read kits attacked by the educational Establishment. "Don't worry," he bellowed to a property management official who had called to ask whether Shanahan's Gateway Educational Products would be able to pay the rent on its corporate offices in Orange. "You will get every nickel you got coming to you."

With the help of a team meeting, Foothill High School came back from a 17-point halftime deficit to defeat Irvine High School, 21-17, Friday night at Tustin High. "The key to this win was an incredible halftime speech," Foothill Coach Marty McWhinney said. "And it wasn't by (the coaching staff). The kids asked us to leave and I don't know what went on in there."

It took El Modena High School Coach Bill Backstrom almost as long to explain the playoff possibilities in the Century League as it did for his team to defeat rival Foothill, 35-21, Thursday night in Fred Kelly Stadium. The waiting game could be the hardest part because El Modena needs some help from Santa Ana and Villa Park tonight if it hopes to earn the No. 3 berth in the six-team league with a 3-6-1 record and 2-3 league mark.

With a share of the Century League lead on the line, Santa Ana and Foothill high schools played a rough and tumble game Friday. Santa Ana got rough and Foothill tumbled. The Saint defense was in top form, while the offense picked its spots in a 21-6 victory in front of 3,000 at Santa Ana Stadium. The victory kept alive the Saints' hopes of a fourth consecutive league championship. They will be no worse than tied for first place with either Villa Park or Santa Ana Valley, who play tonight.

From the looks of the dim bar in Casablanca, you'd expect to find Humphrey Bogart serving drinks under the gaze of Ingrid Bergman. Fifty years after Warner Bros. released "Casablanca," among the most enduring and popular films in cinema history, the legend lives on in this watering hole on Morocco's western coast. Much like Rick's Cafe Americain of the film, beggars and pickpockets thrive outside the Casablanca Bar in a corner of the Hyatt Hotel in downtown Casablanca.

Tustin High School followed a few simple rules of football Friday night and came away with a 17-6 victory over Foothill in front 2,000 at Tustin. The Tillers did roll up 144 yards in penalties, mostly by the offense. And, yes, they were able to sustain only two drives. But at least Tustin didn't turn the ball over. Foothill had the problems in the area. The Knights gave the ball away five times, which stopped their already sluggish offense.
