Belmont High boys' soccer Coach Nancy Carr-Swaim has waited two years to retrieve the City Section Division 4-A championship trophy that was forfeited after her team had defeated Bell, 1-0, in the 1994 final. Shortly after that victory, section officials confirmed that Belmont had played a ninth-semester senior, a CIF violation. Carr-Swaim returned the trophy and no champion was declared. Second-seeded Belmont (21-1-2) will play third-seeded Garfield (14-1-5) for the title at 2 p.m.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors' historic effort to relieve our traffic congestion with its new "roads-first program" is appreciated and applauded by the Saddleback Area Coordinating Council. We have advocated the need for an aggressive comprehensive road construction program in the South County for the past two years. In August of 1986, we called for a construction moratorium unless the county could deliver a program that would solve many of our transportation needs and be without cost to the existing residents.

As an American and registered Democrat, I am deeply embarrassed by the conduct of the former first family with regard to the last-minute pardons, the obvious involvement of Hugh Rodham and their pathetic, "Golly gee, I had no idea" commentaries. Even if these statements were all true (which I don't believe for a minute), their history of vague, evasive and outright dishonest answers renders their credibility totally impotent. If we as Democrats do not actively cleanse our party of the Clintons and get our act together, we will be looking at a debacle at the polls in 2002 that will make 1994 look like a Democratic cakewalk.

If watching sporting events on a computer is the wave of the future, then the future hasn't been perfected. On the first day of the NCAA men's tournament, there were some good things about's March Madness on Demand, which offers video-streamed games from the first three rounds not available on CBS. But there were also glitches. Getting on just before the first tipoff proved difficult, particularly for those who didn't pre-register for VIP access.

The electric beater had ice cream on it, so 12-year-old Brent Bowles of Brea on Friday did what comes naturally. He licked it off. But he didn't turn off the beater first, and the springlike wire whip on the end wrapped around his tongue and would not let go. Brea Fire Department Capt. Don Poe said that when he arrived, Brent was sitting in the bathroom "with this thing on his mouth." Poe tried to pry it off, "but I just couldn't . . . and it was so painful for him." Brent was sent to St.

As Los Angeles' elected officials debate the need for regulating high-speed Internet access through cable television lines, it's important for those officials to stay focused on engaging, educating and protecting the people whose interests they were elected to represent: the consumers. To date, there has been scant evidence of focus. That is shocking, given that the rest of Southern California, as well as the nation, is watching Los Angeles to see what course it takes.

For "Tangled," the studio's 50th feature-length cartoon, the team at Disney has taken a deep breath and tried to be all things to all animation-loving people. There are some hiccups along the way, but by the end there is success. Whether you like stirring adventure or sentimental romance, traditional fairy tales or stories of modern families, musicals or comedies, even blonds or brunets, "Tangled" has something for you. Sampling so many animation touchstones has its risks, but once "Tangled" calms down and accepts the essential sweetness of its better nature the rewards are clear.
Outraged friends and colleagues are rallying to the defense of late '50s screen hunk Jeff Chandler to offset damage done to his reputation by Esther William's racy bestselling autobiography, "The Million Dollar Mermaid." According to Williams, who began a love affair with Chandler during the shooting of "Raw Wind in Eden" in 1956, Chandler was "happy and secure only in women's clothing." Cross-dressing, she writes, gave the actor a sexual thrill.
One of the largest gun stores in this border city is welcoming new customers--doctors. They are stocking up on firepower not for hunting or target practice, but for self-protection. In October, one of their own was gunned down in what some say was a retaliatory killing by the Mexican family of a woman who died after childbirth and whose husband is rumored to be a drug-trafficker.
