The body of a Santee man was found by a rock climber on a rugged hillside in Mission Trails Park over the weekend, the San Diego County coroner's office said. Deputy Coroner Jack Larkie said it appeared that Robert Stebbins, 42, fell from a cliff and broke his neck. He had been dead about three days. Larkie said the body was discovered Saturday afternoon by David Tatro in a remote area about one mile north of Mission Gorge Road and less than a mile from Father Junipero Serra Trail.

If anyone could make lizards, salamanders, snakes and all measure of creepy, crawling things objects of wonder and even beauty, it was Robert C. Stebbins. His well-regarded books, lectures and artwork made him a superstar among those who studied reptiles and amphibians, from world-famous scientists to weekend naturalists who hiked with his nature guides in hand. Although he did much of his work alone and tended toward shyness, Stebbins' scientific discoveries and willingness to stand up for his convictions have been celebrated by many, including bestselling author Richard Dawkins.

Garden Grove struggled offensively, but its defense came through Thursday as the Argonauts ended a nine-game losing streak with a 17-6 victory over visiting La Quinta in a Garden Grove League game. The Argonauts' defense, which had given up at least three touchdowns in each of its previous games, held La Quinta (2-6, 0-4 in league) to 89 total yards and shut out the Aztecs until the final minute of the game.

Garden Grove overcame five turnovers and retained a slim chance of making the playoffs with a 21-14 victory over La Quinta Thursday at Bolsa Grande High. Although the postseason is an unlikely destination for the Argonauts (3-5-1, 2-2-1)--they would have to upset Los Amigos next week and get some help to earn a berth--they showed tenacity after failing to put the game away early.

It was clear after the 50-0 rout that Craven's worrying was all for naught. First, the Mariners got two first-quarter touchdowns from running back Frankie Morieda on their way to a 37-point halftime advantage. They cruised from there.
