 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.

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.

Anaheim Servite finished last in the Trinity League with a 1-9 record, but the Friars are in the Southern Section Divison 3AA semifinals after a 49-47 win over Atascadero on Tuesday niight. Neil Pau'u had 15 points for Servite, which continues to get energy from its student section, known as The Asylum. Rancho Cucamonga very easily could have been selected for the Southern Section Open Division playoffs. Instead, Rancho Cucamonga is rolling to victories in 1AA. Its latest triumph was a 75-56 thrashing of Santa Monica.

 Two Republicans have entered the race to succeed retiring Rep. Gary Miller (R-Rancho Cucamonga) in a district that has become increasingly Democratic. They are San Bernardino City Councilman John Valdivia and Paul Chabot, a military veteran and small business owner who lives in Rancho Cucamonga.  Miller announced this week he would step down rather than seek another term in the Inland Empire's 31st Congressional District.  No well-known Republican has stepped into the contest for what will be a tough district for the GOP to hold.  Chabot, however, has endorsements from former GOP Rep. Jerry Lewis  and former state Sen. Bob Dutton, both of whom used to represent much of the area.

 On the eve of the Southern Section 1 p.m. announcement on Friday of the teams that will be selected for the new Open Division, here's my prediction if the committee decides to pick 16 teams. Mater Dei, Loyola, Etiwanda, Corona Centennial, Chino Hills and Long Beach Poly from 1AA. Riverside North and El Toro from 1A. Redondo and St. John Bosco from 2AA. Compton from 2A. Cathedral from 3A. Bishop Montgomery and Gardena Serra from 4AA. Sierra Canyon from 4A. That's 15. The last team will be Mayfair, Rancho Cucamonga or Chaminade.

Gearing up for an expected battle with Etiwanda and Corona Centennial for Inland Empire basketball supremacy, Rancho Cucamonga has added senior point guard Brian Beard, a transfer from Orange Lutheran who also previously played for La Verne Lutheran. He averaged nearly 10 points a game last season for the Lancers.  Rancho Cucamonga shared the Baseline League championship last season with 1AA champion Etiwanda and returns standout guards Victor Joseph and Daylan Lawrence.
