Turns out the surf wasn't the only thing up in Huntington Beach on Sunday. First, the city hosted the U.S. Open of Surfing. Then, it hosted the U.S. Open of Rioting . And on Monday morning, it was hosting the U.S. Open of Cleaning Up. Gee, Gidget, bet you didn't see this coming! Mix hundreds of young people, alcohol, an all-day event and what do you get? Tequila Uprising. Sadly, though, this type of incident is all too common in today's sporting world. Rioting is now as much a part of championship celebrations as the parade.

Relief for troubled youngsters is afloat in Newport Harbor. A local restaurant owner recently donated a 35-foot boat that will be used by Sail for Life, a program that teaches abused and neglected youngsters to sail. Children who live in area group homes have been making regular trips to the Sea Scout Base on Coast Highway to work on the 25-year-old sloop, and take sailing lessons. Though considered in good shape, the gas-powered ship needs some engine work and other maintenance.

The travel, the adventure, the fitness. Bike touring, currently enjoying a renaissance, is the same body-and-mind journey of discovery it's been since the Jack Kerouac era, with one exception: The gear's a lot better. The top-of-the-line cargo carriers here -- heavy-duty, waterproof, huge -- let you lug along all the creature comforts you can't live without . . . for decades. They even do the job if you're not into touring any farther than the end of your neighborhood.

At the home he shares with his parents, Bryan Stow does his best, but he struggles. It's hard to move his left arm and that hand will barely close. He must wear a diaper, needs help to take a shower and has to be reminded why a plastic shunt juts from the base of his skull. The members of Stow's family who addressed a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Thursday wondered if the two men who attacked the paramedic and father of two outside Dodger Stadium in 2011 knew any of that, or if they cared.

The gentle restoration of Stow House went far beyond lintels and mantels, whatnots and wainscotting and the perkiest widow's walk this far west of Oyster Bay. It produced a home again . . . as headquarters for the restorers, the Goleta Valley Historical Society. It re-established Stow House as a community center . . . for Fourth of July picnics, barbecues, band concerts, spelling bees and simply a place for folks to be. And each year, at this season, it allows the warm ghost of Christmas past .

The sister of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium in 2011, addressed his attackers in court Thursday, calling them "despicable" for not showing even a "tiny bit of remorse. " Marvin Norwood, 30, and Louie Sanchez, 31, faced charges of mayhem, assault and battery, and inflicting great bodily injury in the beating of Stow, a 44-year-old father of two. The March 31 attack left Stow, a Northern California paramedic, with serious head trauma and a permanent disability that means he will need care for the rest of his life.
