A day after UCLA receiver Nick Pasquale died after being struck by a vehicle, the Bruins went back to work preparing for Saturday's game against Nebraska - while remembering their popular teammate. Players patted two handmade posters attached to the fence at Spaulding Field, one reading "Play for each other, play for your brother," the other, "We love you Nick. " The practice facility's UCLA football flag was at half staff. Linebacker Eric Kendricks , who wears No. 6, walked onto the field with a "3" taped to his jersey to honor Pasquale, who wore No. 36. Coach Jim Mora became annoyed with a television technician who was speaking loudly into a cellphone during Mora's weekly news conference.

Nick Pasquale understood about San Clemente. He was from there, as am I. One town, one team. It binds you together. Friends tire hearing about what I tell them is the greatest little community on earth. A place where kids grow up to play for the town's one high school, where the homecoming parade still runs up the main street. Nick understood these things because he lived it. He was what I tell my friends about. Pasquale died early Sunday morning after being struck by a vehicle.

SAN CLEMENTE ISLAND - The unique wildlife of San Clemente Island has survived the appetites and hooves of feral livestock, bombardments by Navy vessels and wave after wave of amphibious assault vehicles storming local beaches and grassy plateaus. The operative word is "survived. " Through it all, native species clung to life on the 57-square-mile volcanic isle about 75 miles northwest of San Diego that includes the only ship-to-shore bombardment training range in the United States.

Southern California Edison issued layoff notices to 600 employees this week, following news this month that the San Onofre nuclear plant in San Clemente would be permanently retired. The coastal plant that once supplied power to 1.4 million homes in Southern California was closed in January 2012 when a tube in its newly replaced steam generators leaked a small amount of radioactive steam, leading to the discovery that the tubes were wearing down at an unusual rate. The shutdown will mean the utility company will reduce its staff at the plant from about 1,500 to 400. Quiz: How much do you know about California's economy?
