More than a week after Msgr. Michael Harris, the founding principal of Santa Margarita High School, shocked the campus by announcing an immediate leave of absence, students, faculty and parents vowed to continue his work for him. "We definitely want to keep on everything that he did, because he made it such a great school," said Nicole McKeehan, a freshman who has known Harris for several years through her family. "I know we're going to miss him a lot."

Instead of the traditional school bell, about 900 students arriving at newly opened Rancho Santa Margarita Intermediate School were greeted Thursday by the sounds of trumpeters, straight from Disneyland. Near an archway of balloons bearing the school colors of teal, black and white hung a banner with the school mascot saying, "Beep Beep. Roadrunners Coming Through."

Two boys were arrested Tuesday after police said one of them took a pistol and about 15 cartridges to their Rancho Santa Margarita high school. One boy, 15, said he hid the pistol in his backpack and brought it to Tesoro High because he feared that other students meant to harm him, authorities said. When word of the gun spread and other students told the principal, the boy passed the weapon to a friend, 16, who hid it in his own backpack, authorities said.

The score was a 1-1 tie, but the game was one for the scrapbooks. At least it was for a feisty group of 10-year-olds from the Long Beach United soccer club, which tied Major League Soccer's Galaxy in a just-for-fun exhibition match Sunday at the inaugural Soccer Extravaganza in San Juan Capistrano. "This makes their spring break," said Coach Claudio Igrassia, whose team was one of 100 participating in the seven-a-side matches that took place Saturday and Sunday.

As their families and friends wept, Derek Thomas Jones, 20, of Huntington Beach and Russell Takeo Scarce, 19, of Lake Forest bowed their heads and were led out of court in handcuffs.
