Drake Martinez said just days prior to the Orange County North-South All-Star Football Game at Orange Coast College, that he wanted his final prep performance to end in a win for his South team. That's exactly what the 2013 Laguna Beach High graduate and his squad earned on June 28 with a 7-3 victory over the North. Quarterback Alek Torgersen of Edison High threw a 35-yard touchdown late in the first half of the 54th annual game for senior players at LeBard Stadium. His scoring pass went to wide receiver Scott Hoover of San Juan Hills and it put the South in front to stay, 7-3, with 4:46 left before halftime.

Mindy Hawkins discussed the finer points of making a grilled cheese sandwich with eight Laguna Beach High School students Thursday. Hawkins, a vocational education teacher at the school, spoke of the difference between cooking the sandwich in a microwave, which is quicker, or allowing the cheese to melt slower while the bread crisps atop a griddle. The classic lunchtime favorite and milkshakes were on the menu. "You guys will be living on your own and have to make lunch," said Hawkins, who walks with nine students from the high school to the Assistance League of Laguna Beach twice a month to cook and perform other tasks, such as placing price tags on CDs and DVDs.

LAGUNA BEACH - Mike Bair asked his Laguna Beach High baseball team to reach down deep in the final inning of Friday's CIF Southern Section Division 4 playoff opener. "It was about having faith, reaching down and finding it in your heart, and keeping that faith in your mind," he said, explaining what he told his Breakers during a team huddle outside the Laguna dugout, as the Breakers prepared to take their final at-bat against Victorville Victor Valley. The Breakers, it turns out, thrive on these last at-bats against the Jackrabbits.
