It was supposed to be the grand finale of the Red and Gold show, a decades-long tradition for the students of Rosary High School, an all-girls Catholic school in Fullerton. Instead, the raucous and creative performance showcasing school spirit ended in a blur when the stage collapsed Saturday night, sending two dozen students to the hospital with minor and moderate injuries. Investigators are now reviewing building permits to determine what restrictions applied to the stage. The performance took place at Servite High School, an all-boys Catholic school in Anaheim.
Rosary won its second Southern Section championship Tuesday by defeating West Hills Chaminade, 10-8, in the Division IV girls' tennis final at the Claremont Club. The Royals' other section title was the Division I-A softball championship in 1984. Rosary, which lost to Los Alamitos in the 1991 finals, might have cashed in on its last chance at a tennis title for a few years; the top-seeded Royals (23-1) will graduate six of their nine starters.

CLEVELAND -- Prayer has sustained Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul D. Ryan through his long days of campaigning; he keeps a rosary in his pocket and says the serenity prayer every morning. That's what Ryan told a tele-town-hall organized by the Faith and Freedom Coalition Sunday night as he made a closing appeal to faith-based voters two days before the election.  “As you can imagine, we pray throughout the day. ... It keeps us humble, it keeps us strong, it keeps us in a good place,” Ryan said in answer to a question about how his faith has gotten him through the campaign.

Should Rosary lose the Golden West League softball title because it was beaten by Westminster on Friday, Coach Tom Tice can gain comfort knowing he took the moral high road. Confronted with the prospect of playing ninth-ranked Westminster without six players who missed practice a day earlier, Tice admitted he was tempted to throw a team rule out the window. He didn't, and Westminster scored a 6-2 victory over the Royals at Buckingham Park in Westminster.
After a season of disappointment, there was something that felt right to Rosary's players after their 1-0 softball victory over Westminster Wednesday. Rosary was ranked as high as fifth in some preseason polls, but a myriad of injuries prevented the Royals from developing the way most, including Coach Tom Tice, expected. But by defeating Westminster, the Royals beat the current fifth-ranked team in Orange County and took a one-game lead in the Golden West League.

Rosary has established itself as a contender in the tough Serra League, but a lopsided loss to Santa Margarita has opened the eyes of the Royals. "We were 7-0 going into that and the girls might have been thinking they were not going to get beat this year," Coach Hank Vellekamp said. "But they were pretty concerned about that loss afterward. We play them again, so we can just hope it comes out our way."
After winning a Southern Section championship by the skin of its teeth, undersized Rosary learned Saturday that basketball is a game of inches. Six inches here, four inches there . . . Playing for its first Southern California girls' basketball Division III title, Rosary came up waaaay short in a 72-50 loss to North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake.

More than 500 people lined up in the heat Wednesday to pay their respects to 17-year-old Norma Lopez, walking silently into a Moreno Valley chapel and past a coffin draped with pink roses and a tearful mother and father saying their final goodbyes to their young daughter. Many who came expressed both anger and fear that such a good child could suffer such a gruesome end to her young life. Norma was abducted while walking home from summer school earlier this month and found dead in a grassy field days later.

Re "Forgive me, Father, for I have tailgated," June 21 Is the Vatican serious? The Ten Commandments for drivers? Isn't there enough poverty, rape, war and suffering to deal with? These Ten Commandments -- as applicable and relevant as they are to Los Angeles -- are trivial in the grand scheme of things. There are bigger fish to fry. So what does this latest set of guidelines have to say about the church? Too much time on its hands, or misplaced priorities? RYAN CONLEY Los Angeles The article is funny but serious.

For many years, Southern California was home to annual outdoor celebrations of the Roman Catholic rosary and the Virgin Mary, events that drew thousands at a time to the Hollywood Bowl, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Dodger Stadium. The devotional service, known as Mary's Hour, began at the Bowl in 1948 and drew its largest audience, about 100,000, to the Coliseum in 1954.

Janet Fanucchi has made jewelry since her teenage years. But it wasn't until three years ago that, at age 50, she made her first rosary -- Indian amber beads with a golden vintage cross -- and came to understand its ability to forge an intimate connection between human and divine. "I've always loved the rosary," Fanucchi said. "It's a spiritual experience to make one." Fanucchi joined the guild at St.

Once the humble home of immigrant fishermen, today San Diego's Little Italy is a sophisticated urban community. There have been dramatic changes -- stylish condos, art galleries, chic eateries -- but from the first whiff of espresso in the morning to the aroma of simmering marinara sauce at night, this is a neighborhood that has stayed true to its roots.

With its best perimeter player out for the season because of a torn knee ligament and its best interior player out with a dislocated shoulder, Santa Ana Mater Dei was typically snakebit on Thursday in a Serra League girls' basketball game with Fullerton Rosary. The battle lasted little more than the first eight minutes because the second eight minutes was no contest as fourth-ranked Rosary fired the first volley toward a league title with a 41-28 victory over No. 12 Mater Dei.

WHEN Maripat Donovan came to L.A. from Chicago to do her show "Late Nite Catechism," she thought she'd be here just a little while. So she rented a house around the corner from the theater in Hollywood. Five years later, she owns a house on the same street and, in the persona of Sister, is still "teaching" the funnier side of Catholic doctrine at the Coronet Theatre.
