Jamon Buggs ran wild in the fourth quarter and David Villa set a San Diego Section record with a 107-yard interception return for a touchdown to lead San Pasqual to a come-from-behind victory, 34-20, over Santana in the quarterfinals of the section playoffs Saturday night at San Pasqual. Buggs finished with 136 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns in 22 carries, many of those yards coming in the final 12 minutes and coming behind the blocking of offensive lineman Troy Davis.

Erin Takeuchi's first-grade classroom at San Pascual Avenue Elementary is well outfitted. Every student work station has a box with glue, pencils, crayons and safety scissors. The walls are a riot of student work, academic content and inspirational messages. But one item is curiously absent - the iPads that Los Angeles school officials have wanted to distribute to every student. This made Takeuchi's activity on Friday especially noteworthy. She was teaching students how to use iPads safely.

Police found charred skeletal remains Sunday in a backcountry area of north San Diego that was scorched by a brush fire about six weeks ago. The remains were discovered about noon along California 78 east of the San Pasqual Academy, police said. A coroner's spokesman said the department did not dispatch an investigator to the scene since police were unable to determine whether the remains were of a human or an animal.

Officials say a baby elephant at San Diego's Wild Animal Park recently diagnosed with an antibiotic-resistant staph infection was euthanized because of multiple health problems. Park spokeswoman Christina Simmons said the infection was not the reason behind Monday's euthanasia of the 2-month-old elephant. She said the elephant calf had a compromised immune system and was malnourished. Complications from birth prevented the mother elephant from feeding the calf, and park staff tried to raise the calf by hand-feeding, Simmons said.

It would be inaccurate to say that San Pasqual High School's defense paced the Eagles to a 27-21 victory over visiting Mt. Carmel Friday night. After all, the offense scored three consecutive second-half touchdowns. And the offense, which scored 42 points in the opener, overcame four lost fumbles and two botched extra points. But for three plays in the third quarter, the defense stood tall. San Pasqual led, 21-7, and Mt. Carmel started from its 34-yard line with about 10 minutes left.

With a coach overseas on personal business, an assistant coach in his first day on the job, and an inexperienced infield suffering from game jitters, the San Pasqual softball team was the least likely candidate to reach the championship game of the Hilltop Tournament at Hilltop. "They were a big surprise for everyone," said Hilltop Coach and Tournament Director Nancy Acerrio. "They were really hitting."

Will Wester, coach of the San Pasqual High cross-country team, recognizes the importance of having a solid sixth runner. And after the state cross-country championships here Saturday at Woodward Park, Wester can confirm it. San Pasqual became the first school to win boys' and girls' cross-country championships in the same year. "We had six kids going for us (on both teams) today," Wester said. "Most teams have 1-2-3-4-5 then a gap. We have six." Having a strong No.

More than 200 firefighters were called to the San Diego Wild Animal Park on Tuesday to battle a spreading brush fire that started when a "control burn," designed to remove 400 acres of thick chaparral, got out of control and "jumped" across 160 acres not intended for burning. Officials of the California Department of Forestry said the burn began around 9 a.m. but that high winds and dry conditions caused the fire to spread out of control around 1:30 in the afternoon.

The $150,000 San Pasqual Handicap, to be run for the 70th time today, is the first prep for the $1-million Santa Anita Handicap on March 3. It has been a while, however, since success in the San Pasqual translated to victory in the Big 'Cap. Farma Way, in 1991, is the last horse to have won both races. Farma Way also made off with the San Antonio Handicap in between for Quarter B Farm and trainer Wayne Lukas that year.

Today's $150,000 San Pasqual Handicap at Santa Anita is the first major prep for the $1-million Santa Anita Handicap on March 4. For well over a decade, success in the San Pasqual, a Grade II at 1 1/16 miles, has not led to Big 'Cap glory. The last horse to win both races was Farma Way in 1991. The son of Marfa completed the parlay for Quarter B Farm, trainer Wayne Lukas and jockey Gary Stevens.

Star Cross, better than fifth only once in his first six races in the United States, has been a different horse with blinkers. The 7-year-old made it two victories in a row since trainer Darrell Vienna made the equipment change with a come-from-behind win over Nose The Trade and five others in the $150,000 San Pasqual Handicap on Saturday at Santa Anita.

The $150,000 San Pasqual Handicap, which will be run for the 67th time today, is the first prep for the $1-million Santa Anita Handicap on March 6. It has been more than a decade, however, since a winner of the San Pasqual repeated in the Big 'Cap. Farma Way was the last horse to win both races, accomplishing the double for trainer Wayne Lukas in 1991.

When wildfires tore through here last month, 94-year-old Frances Jones escaped minutes before flames engulfed her home. Within days, San Pasqual's tribal council had cut her a check to help pay for food and clothing. Jones' neighbors, Lorraine and Natalia Orosco, lost their childhood home and two trailer-houses. But when they asked tribal officials for help, they were told they didn't qualify for the aid Jones received.

Dreams of a better life ended for farm laborer Armillo Aparicio when wildfires destroyed his family's single-wide trailer home. "Everything was burned," said Aparicio, 27, the father of three, whose home was on a section of San Diego's San Pasqual Indian Reservation, known as Little Tijuana because of the large number of Mexican immigrants who live there. "We were not able to get anything out."

In a bedroom papered with pencil sketches, honor roll certificates and verses by rapper Tupac Shakur, Mishelle Holbrook nonchalantly ticked off the 12 previous foster families and group homes she had been assigned to since she entered San Diego County's foster care system. "They say I have an attitude, but I'm just determined and feisty," said Holbrook, 17, who authorities said was removed from her alcoholic father eight years ago.

So much for trainer Bob Baffert's slump. A winner with only one of his first 29 starters at Santa Anita, a meet he has led five consecutive times, Baffert picked up two victories Saturday, including a desperate win by 11-10 favorite Wooden Phone in the $200,000 San Pasqual Handicap. Baffert's Puerto Banus, a first-time starter who is also the half-brother to the stakes-winning mare Spain, won the sixth.
