If the Mission Viejo Co. wants to influence voters by spending its money on a recall campaign, more power to it. But the next time citizens of that community have a complaint, they should forget the public forum of a City Council meeting and call James Gilleran, president of the Mission Viejo Co. As long as he's stepping into the political arena, let him also share in the joy of answering to the city's voting public. Hey, Gilleran! Can you fix the chuckholes on La Paz Road?

Orange County deputies are looking for a man believed to have burglarized a Mission Viejo home in February while the homeowners were sleeping upstairs. The man, believed to be 17 to 20 years old with dark hair, entered the home on Feb. 18 through an unlocked sliding door about 3 a.m., the Orange County Sheriff's Department said in a statement. Investigators said he stole $1,200 worth of iPads and cash from a resident's purse. The burglary was captured on surveillance footage from a camera installed by the homeowner.

Stephen Young is off to a terrific start pitching for Mission Viejo. He has thrown 21 scoreless innings this season while going 3-0. His latest triumph was a 6-0 victory over Mira Costa on Saturday in which he struck out three and allowed three hits. Saugus pitchers threw consecutive shutouts earlier this week in Foothill League play, and the strong pitching continued in a 5-1 victory over Bonita. Chase Wheatcroft threw six innings of one-run ball. Great Oak won the battle of unbeatens against Temecula Valley, 1-0. Austin Burke threw five shutout innings.

When I read that 13 federal agents raided the home of a scrub pitcher who allegedly took steroids and human growth hormone, I couldn't help think that maybe 12 of those agents should have been focused on something just a little bit more important. Maybe something like, hmmm, I don't know ... terrorism? JACK FEENEY Mission Viejo

There is no doubt in my mind that Kobe Bryant did not give 100% in Game 7 against Phoenix. The real question is which Kobe Bryant will show up this season. I hope it's the Kobe Bryant who played team basketball in the first six games against Phoenix and not the one who for reasons known only to himself quit on his team in Game 7.

The World Baseball Classic has just renewed umpire Bob Davidson's contract, as head of Team USA's cheerleading operation. MICHAEL MIYAMOTO Mission Viejo Maybe it is about time that we lose the phrase "World Champions" in reference to U.S. sports. CHRIS VAN HOWTEN Valencia So, despite Team USA getting that wrongly awarded gift call of the tag-up play against Japan, it occurred to me that Team Karma actually eliminated the U.S. masquerading in the colors of Mexico.

Olympic sprint champion Florence Griffith Joyner died after suffering an epileptic seizure, according to autopsy results released Thursday, and her family and friends say they hope the findings will put to rest rumors that drug use contributed to her death. Griffith Joyner died last month in her sleep at age 38. Her husband, Al Joyner, bitterly criticized those who suggested that she took performance-enhancing drugs.

Prosecutors in the Randy Steven Kraft murder trial say a paper with 61 entries, found in his car trunk when he was arrested May 14, 1983, is a death list--Kraft's own score card of how many young men he had killed dating back to late 1971. Kraft's attorneys deny it is a death list, and call it meaningless information that will only inflame his jury. Kraft himself, in a 1983 interview, called the list nothing more than references to friends of his and his roommate at the time.

Matthew Rockett and Jacob Welch have caught touchdown passes and Landon Iakopo has run for a score for the Monarchs.  Mission Viejo quarterback Ian Fieber has completed only three of 14 passes -- one to Daniel Marx for the game's first touchdown.

Friday's top high school football games: Long Beach Poly (10-1) vs. Ventura St. Bonaventure (8-3) at Ventura College, 7 p.m.: It's time to find out whether St. Bonaventure's run defense has improved since it gave up 466 yards and seven touchdowns to Tre Watson of Corona Centennial in the second game of the season. In this Pac-5 Division quarterfinal game, Poly will try to run the ball again and again. St. Bonaventure's defense, led by linebacker Jason Farlow, will try not to get worn down or give up the big play.

If the seedings released on Sunday for the Pac-5 Division football playoffs are accurate, then Bellflower St. John Bosco (10-0) and Mission Viejo (10-0), seeded No. 1 and No. 2, will meet in the championship game on Dec. 6 at Angel Stadium. Something tells me, though, the road to Anaheim won't be as simple as many think, particularly for Mission Viejo. In the Diablos' bracket is 19-time champion Long Beach Poly (9-1), the No. 3 seed, plus Trinity League runner-up Santa Ana Mater (8-2)

While driving to Aliso Viejo on Tuesday to hear the Juilliard String Quartet play Bach, Schubert and a young American composer, Jesse Jones, at the Soka Performing Arts Center, I listened to a little early Bob Dylan. It seemed right. But so might have Leonard Bernstein, Glenn Gould, something from Stravinsky's Los Angeles years or Aaron Copland. Anything by Miles Davis or Thelonious Monk would have been equally suitable. All were artists on Columbia Records, and in the '40s, '50s and '60s, all were showing the extraordinary originality of North American music.

CHAD EVERETT and his wife, Shelby Grant Everett, have put the Spanish-style, Chatsworth home they built in 1971 on the market for $2.85 million and are building a new residence for themselves in Chandler, Ariz. "I have a picture ('Heroes Stand Alone') coming out in June and (a pilot for) a series on ABC, so I'm not getting out of the business," the actor quickly noted about his move to Arizona. "Assuming the series goes, we'll be in Florida half the year, so it isn't necessary to live here."

The mother of Olympic sprint champion Florence Griffith Joyner filed a wrongful death lawsuit this week against her son-in-law, Al Joyner, in what she said is part of an escalating family dispute over control of the famed runner's legacy. The four-page complaint includes few specific allegations other than the charge that Joyner failed to "exercise reasonable care to avoid foreseeable risk of harm" to his wife and that "harmful or offensive touching" caused her death.

Is Mission Viejo the best team in Orange County?  The Diablos stated their case in emphatic fashion Friday night, breaking a scoreless tie with 20 unanswered points in the second quarter on their way to a 37-7 victory over South Coast League rival Santa Margarita Tesoro at Mission Viejo High.  On a night that when Santa Margarita upset Santa Ana Mater Dei and Anaheim Servite beat Orange Lutheran on the final play, there was no such drama for...
