The Coast Guard has suspended the search for the Oceanside boater who disappeared Monday and whose boat was later found off La Jolla. "After an exhaustive search effort utilizing a significant number of crews and assets, we've come to the very difficult decision to suspend the search," Coast Guard Capt. Sean Mahoney, commander of the San Diego sector, said by email shortly after 7 p.m. The boater, Loren Ruden, 52, was reported missing after beachgoers found his dog near the Oceanside pier.

Some things never change in high school football. The Trinity League is always good. Corona Centennial's offense scores lots of points. And Sherman Oaks Notre Dame has a top kicker. Following the path of NFL kickers Nick Folk and Kai Forbath , Lucas Alfonso had field goals from 50 and 49 yards on Saturday to help the Knights defeat Loomis Del Oro, 41-24, in the Honor Bowl at Oceanside High. Like Folk and Forbath, Alfonso is a student of former Notre Dame and UCLA All-American kicker Chris Sailer . Alfonso didn't attempt a field goal last week in Notre Dame's win over Manhattan Beach Mira Costa, so he was waiting for his chance.

No way am I going to make it to Maine this summer to feast on lobster pulled straight from the Atlantic. Short of flying in the crustaceans from the East Coast (very expensive), I intend to get my lobster fix right here. Not at the Lobster in Santa Monica - too noisy - or the Red Lobster. And I'm not longing for one of the gigantesque lobsters served up at the Palm steakhouses either. Something more demure, more soulful for me. On a recent lobster crawl around town, I found three places that did a good, even great, job with Maine lobster.

There was primping, flirting, laughing, betting, drinking - and that was before the first race went off on opening day at Del Mar. In what has become the social event of the year in San Diego County, a crowd of 43,030, the largest to attend a horse race in California this year, showed up on Wednesday to create a party-like atmosphere complete with hats seemingly designed from an unknown civilization. "Oh my God. Look at this," one female track visitor said in awe of a hat that included an iron replica of the Eiffel Tower covered with flowers and feathers.

Opening day at Del Mar is set for Wednesday, and it's the one day of the year when Southern California horse racing fans forget about any troubles surrounding the sport. Fans come out en masse (attendance on opening day was 47,339 last year), colorful hats pop up as if it were the Kentucky Derby and fields are so full that no one worries whether there's a shortage of horses. As usual, the opening day $100,000 Oceanside Stakes for 3-year-olds going one mile on the turf has been split into two divisions, the sixth and ninth races on a 10-race card, after 22 horses were entered.

A traffic accident Friday morning has led to closure of southbound lanes of Interstate 5 north of Oceanside, the California Highway Patrol reported. A collision between a flatbed truck and three big rigs two miles south of Basilone Road led to a fuel spill across all lanes, the CHP said. Hazardous-material crews have been summoned for cleanup. The closure was reported by CHP at 7:18 a.m. By 8:27 a.m., drivers were being allowed to use the shoulder, the CHP said. The closure has caused a massive backup of vehicles.

SAN DIEGO - An Oceanside couple are headed to prison for keeping an underage relative as a sex slave, housekeeper, baby sitter and prostitute. Inez Martinez Garcia, 44, was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison, and her husband, Marcial Garcia Hernandez, 45, to 23 years to life. Each had pleaded guilty to multiple counts of abuse. The two were accused of forcing the girl to clean and cook, take care of the couple's three children and have sex with Hernandez and with other men for money.
