It's time to look into my crystal ball and see what the new year has in store for Southern California high school athletes and teams: Khalil Bedart-Ghani of Los Angeles Loyola and Stanley Johnson of Santa Ana Mater Dei will engage in an epic dunk-a-thon, with the winner getting a new shoe from Nike named Air Ghani or Air Stanley. The comeback players of the year in football will be running back Malik Roberson of Gardena Serra, coming back from a torn ACL, and running back Leo Lambert III of Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, coming back from jaw surgery.

SACRAMENTO - Southern California electricity ratepayers soon could get the first of possibly many refunds, stemming from the shutdown of the San Onofre nuclear power plant. Two state Public Utilities Commission administrative law judges last week issued a proposed decision, ordering Southern California Edison Co. to refund $74.2 million on its customers' 2012 bills and San Diego Gas & Electric Co. to refund $19.3 million. The reason: Edison closed the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in January and not all its reported spending was reasonable or necessary, the judges wrote.

UCLA football player Nick Pasquale, who was hit and killed by car in San Clemente in September, had a blood-alcohol content of 0.26%, more than three times the legal limit in California, authorities said Friday. The Times' Chris Foster is reporting that Pasquale, a walk-on receiver, tested negative for drugs, however, and, according to Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff's Department, there was no way to determine whether the 20-year-old's blood alcohol level was a contributing factor in the accident.

A former San Clemente middle school math teacher was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison for sexually assaulting an eighth-grade student on campus and committing lewd acts against two other female students. Richard John Rack had been a teacher at Shorecliffs Middle School in San Clemente since 2002 when a victim reported his conduct to the school principal last year. Upon Rack's release from prison, he will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. During Friday's sentencing, the mothers of two of his victims submitted statements to the court, saying the sexual assaults had a devastating impact on their daughters, and asked the judge to sentence Rack to the maximum sentence of 10 years.

The San Onofre nuclear plant may be permanently retired, but on Wednesday, the sirens were scheduled to sound as they have every year for an annual test. The test -- a regulatory requirement that hasn't been suspended despite the nuclear plant's shutdown -- will involve 50 sirens and include the cities of Dana Point, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano, as well as other areas of southern Orange County, nearby state parks and the Marine Corps base Camp Pendleton, officials announced.

SACRAMENTO - State energy officials are scrambling to fill a large hole in California electricity supplies now that the San Onofre nuclear plant has been permanently closed by Southern California Edison Co. It's not just an energy problem; it could also become a political hot potato. Power blackouts helped fuel the recall of Gov. Gray Davis a decade ago, and Gov. Jerry Brown may be paying close attention as a result. California Energy Commission Chairman Robert Weisenmiller recalled that Brown cornered him in August and bluntly warned him to "make sure the lights don't go out down there" in Southern California.
