 When Chris Hawkins (USC), Tahaan Goodman (UCLA) and two other players who went to Arizona State graduated, everyone seemed to forget about Rancho Cucamonga this season. But the Cougars are 5-0 and looking like very much a challenger to Corona Centennial and Vista Murrieta in the Inland Division. And even more impressive, the Cougars have overcome the lost of their starting quarterback, Gage Pucci, to a knee injury in the third game. Sophomore Angel Matute, a 6-foo-2, 200-pound first-year varsity player, passed for four touchdowns last week against Riverside North.

The good news was, Josh Beckett was walking without a limp! The bad news was, that had to be the good news. The Dodgers were hoping the right-hander could make his season debut Wednesday against the Tigers. Hoping because he is coming off a rare surgery that removed an upper rib that was pressuring a nerve and causing his fingers to feel numb. Hoping even a little more because his comeback from surgery was delayed this spring when a clubhouse door was slammed on his right thumb. Then Friday, in what was supposed to be his final tuneup, he was pitching for the Class-A Quakes in Rancho Cucamonga when his latest setback befell him. Fielding a bunt in the fourth inning, he landed wrong on an ankle and was forced out of the game.

Four Democrats have been battling for months over who was best suited to challenge Rep. Gary  Miller (R-Rancho Cucamonga) for his Inland Empire congressional seat. But when Miller announced in February that he wouldn't seek another term, he inadvertently laid the groundwork for a fight within his own party. The battle escalated Friday between Lesli Gooch, a longtime former Miller aide who has his endorsement, and Paul Chabot, a military officer/businessman. The Gooch campaign issued a news release announcing her endorsement by the San Bernardino County Republican Party.  "We must protect California's 31st District and keep it out of the hands of Nancy Pelosi," the GOP's county chairman, Assemblyman Curt Hagman of Chino Hills, said in a statement issued by the Gooch campaign.

WASHINGTON -- Once again, there was Rep. Dana Rohrabacher breaking from most of his congressional colleagues, including fellow Orange County conservatives, to oppose an aid package for Ukraine and sanctions against Russia. "We should not permit ourselves to reignite a Cold War," said Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach), who was on the short end of the bipartisan 319-19 roll call Thursday. He was the lone Californian to oppose the measure, urging colleagues not to demonize Russian President Vladimir Putin.
