Cal Poly basketball, entering the NCAA tournament with 13-19 record, has a tough enough time getting national respect. But shouldn't people at least know where the Mustangs are from? There has been some confusion over Cal Poly as the team prepares for Wednesday's "First Four" game in Dayton against Texas Southern. Some people think the team is from Pomona. "We've seen that one before we played the [Big West] championship game," Poly guard Kyle Odister said at the team's NCAA news conference in Dayton.

The names are largely the same and most of the faces probably seemed familiar, but if it weren't for those similarities, the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo baseball team might not have recognized its opponent Friday at Matador Field. Cal State Northridge, only a year removed from playing conference games against San Luis Obispo in the NCAA Division II California Collegiate Athletic Assn., showed off its newfound attributes in the first game of a two-game series against the Mustangs.

A student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo has been diagnosed with viral meningitis, making the campus the third university in California to report an outbreak of the disease. The announcement from school officials this week comes just days after a student advisor at UC Riverside was also diagnosed with meningitis and officials at UC Santa Barbara confirmed their fourth case in about a month. Cal Poly San Luis Obispo officials said in a news release that medical staff learned of the case there Thursday and that "the infection is thought to be an isolated incident.

A football season that began for Hueneme High in the hot days of August with anticipation of a run to a Southern Section Division IV title ended in a cold wind Saturday when the Vikings fell to San Luis Obispo, 17-7, in a division semifinal at Hueneme. The Vikings (7-5-1) squandered a chance to advance to their first section final, finding themselves done in by a nonexistent passing game and frequent penalties.

There must be something to be said about proving you're the best dang 6-9 team in the Big West Conference. For Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, that was all that was left to play for and the Mustangs reveled in it after beating UC Irvine, 92-82, Saturday in front of 2,740 at Mott Gymnasium.

For Rob Neal, maybe there is something to be said for over-analysis. The Cal Poly San Luis Obispo outfielder has been limited to designated-hitter duty for 1 1/2 seasons because of an ailing shoulder. Instead of cruising the outfield, he paces the dugout. Fidgets on the bench. Hangs on the cyclone fencing. Does the rah-rah thing. "It gives you too much time to think about hitting," he said. "When you play the outfield, you think about other things.

There are streets here where the porches are deep, the shade is cool and the spring flowers billow thick as clouds, where old men doze over the Sunday paper and children build castles out of sheets and sagging wicker lounges. And then there are the suburbs of the last 10 years, largely populated by fleeing Angelenos, where certain houses have "a double garage door and a blank wall (as) the only presentation to the street," says Glen Matteson, associate city planner.

The hint of the coming assault was seen in the first inning when five Sonora batters hit the ball sharply, although it resulted in only one run. The payoff came in the second, when the Raiders scored four times and went on to a 7-2 victory over San Luis Obispo in the Southern Section Division II championship baseball game Saturday at Anaheim Stadium. It was the eighth consecutive victory for Sonora (24-4-2), which won 14 of its final 15 games.

Only one week after State Sen. Gary K. Hart announced that he will quit his office in 1994, contestants have begun to jockey for his seat representing portions of western Ventura County and Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

Phillips 66, which operates refineries across California, is moving forward with a plan to build a rail terminal in San Luis Obispo County that would send trains with up to 80 tank cars of crude oil through Southern California and the Bay Area. In a draft environmental impact statement filed this week, Phillips said it wants to build five sets of parallel tracks that would accommodate trains as often as 250 times per year at its Santa Maria Refinery. The project is the latest effort by the refinery industry to increase crude imports to California from oil fields in North Dakota, Colorado and Texas.

San Luis Obispo on Saturday is marking the grand opening of a new railroad museum that's housed in a Southern Pacific freight house built around 1894. The museum tells the story of the city's important 19th century link in the coastal rail line that joined San Francisco and Los Angeles. Exhibits and displays detail the old narrow-gauge Pacific Coast Railway that ran between Avila Beach and San Luis Obispo, the difficult tunnel and track work along the Cuesta Grade (a route Amtrak's Coast Starlight still chugs along today)

A San Luis Obispo man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts related to possession and distribution of child pornography. Bruce Klickstein, 59, was arrested last week by FBI special agents, and after a brief court appearance Thursday, was released to home detention pending a hearing Aug. 6. Klickstein was identified as a possible suspect after an undercover investigation by  Arroyo Grande police in 2012. Detectives obtained a search warrant for the man's home and discovered at least one computer containing what authorities allege is child pornography.

San Luis Obispo calls itself "the happiest city in America," thanks in part to publicity on the "Oprah" show a couple of years ago. Regardless of its happiness quotient, the central coastal California city's proximity to beaches and abundance of wineries combine to make it a pleasant place to spend a few vacation days. The new Granada Hotel & Bistro , an industrial-chic boutique downtown hotel located in a 1920s exposed-brick building, is making it easy for visitors to get acquainted with the town with a special $140-per-night package.

Epidemiologists are investigating an outbreak of valley fever that has sickened 28 workers at two large solar-power construction sites in San Luis Obispo County. Staff from the California Department of Public Health, and investigators from the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health and San Luis Obispo County visited the sites near the Carrizo Plain two months ago, officials said. They identified the sites as the Topaz Solar Farm and California Valley Solar Ranch, two large-scale photovoltaic power plants whose construction often requires considerable scraping and clearing to make way for thousands of acres of solar panels.

In an acknowledgment that new revelations in the priest abuse scandal have tarnished the church's image, lawyers for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles are seeking to postpone upcoming sexual abuse trials or relocate them to a courthouse 200 miles away because they don't believe they can get a fair trial in Southern California. The church's request to a judge for a delay or change of venue in pending cases this week came just hours after the announcement that the archdiocese would pay two brothers an unprecedented $4 million each to avoid a molestation trial set for April.

Finally. "SOMM," the documentary about four contenders studying like crazy for the master sommelier exam , is slated for summer release after Samuel Goldwyn Films grabbed the North American rights. Until now, Jason Wise 's documentary has been shown at film festivals mostly. It had its world premiere at the Napa Valley Film Festival in November and was just shown at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival . I'm really curious to see it, and also to find out what the four somms featured in the film are doing now. If, like me, you'd rather not wait till summer to see the film, "SOMM" will be shown March 8 as part of the Paso Robles Wine Crawl . Get there early enough to visit tasting rooms around town.
