There is an expression that reads: in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. Leaving aside the notion that taxes are a 1 certainty for another discussion, it is certain that all organic beings — from the most primitive single-celled organisms to complex plants and animals, have finite lifetimes.

Instead of just saying thanks after winning a Business Excellence Award Wednesday night, Windsor philanthropist Alan Quesnel decided to give away $1 million. While accepting his Believe Windsor Essex Award sponsored by WFCU Credit Union, Quesnel told the stunned crowd at Caesars Windsor he is giving $1 million to House of Sophrosyne. I was worried […]

If you know me, you’ll know that I consider food a hobby. Really though. If I’m not eating food, I’m certainly talking about it…or at least thinking about it. With that being said, I definitely have my go to places in Omaha. I am passionate about supporting local businesses and experiencing new things (as long […]

Bolsa Grande’s boys volleyball team was undefeated going into its final regular-season match Tuesday at La Quinta. La Quinta won the first two sets of the Garden Grove League match, both by scores of 25-23. “La Quinta had a huge crowd there,” said Bolsa Grande junior setter Anthony Vo, “and they made us nervous. But we got used to it and got very comfortable.” The Matadors won the next two sets by 25-22 scores and were victorious in the fifth set 15-12 to win the match and conclude the regular season with a 17-0 overall record and a 10-0 league record. They had already clinched the league championship going into Tuesday. Being undefeated going into next week’s CIF-Southern Section Division 3 playoffs was a nice bonus. “At Bolsa Grande,” Vo said,  “our motto is ‘one team, one family.’ In volleyball you really have to work as a team to succeed. We’ve prospered as a team and as a family.” The Matadors won the Garden Grove League championship last year with 9-1 league record. “We have a strong group of young kids,” said Bolsa Grande coach Rebecca Young, a La Quinta alum in her 12th season as Matadors coach. “A couple of years ago we had this great group of freshman boys come in, this very strong clique of boys.” Vo is the most versatile Matador. He played middle blocker last season and made a productive transition to setter this season. Junior outside hitter Johnny Cao is as Young put it “our wham-bam guy.” Junior libero Dan Ly is an on-court leader and senior outside hitter Vincent Hoang is another points producer. The CIF-SS playoff brackets will be released Friday. Bolsa Grande won’t be among Division 3’s top four seeds, but the Matadors will get a first-round home match Tuesday. The Matadors have not advanced past the second round of the playoffs during Young’s tenure. Maybe this is the Bolsa Grande team that can go beyond. “This last match against La Quinta,” Vo said, “truly showed what we can do.” Taking a look around Orange County high school sports: • Thursday is the final day of the regular season for most Orange County baseball and softball leagues. Among the many intriguing baseball game is Mission Viejo at Dana Hills. The teams are tied for third place, which comes with a guaranteed playoff spot, in the South Coast League. Thursday’s winner goes to the CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs, and the loser’s season is done. • O.C. league representatives will meet April 30 to set a timeline for meetings that will create new leagues that would be in place starting with the 2020-21 school year and the following two years. One school that will be looking to move from its current league is Laguna Hills, which is part of the 10-school Coast View Athletic Association that divides the 10 schools into the five-team Sea View and South Coast leagues. Laguna Hills assistant principal in charge of athletics Jay Chadwick said the school hopes to become part of the Pacific Coast League that currently is made up of five Irvine Unified School District schools plus Beckman, which is in Irvine but is in the Tustin Unified School District. • Dewey Van Cleave, who coached a variety of sports at Garden Grove and is best known for coaching boys basketball at the school, died Tuesday, his son and ex-Foothill coach Rusty Van Cleave announced on Twitter. Dewey Van Cleave coached at Garden Grove for 32 years. He was the Argonauts boys basketball head coach for 13 years ending with the 1997-98 season. He also coached girls basketball and track and field, varsity baseball and freshman and junior varsity football. • Foothill hired Yousof Etemadi as its boys basketball coach. Etemadi this past season was co-coach at Northwood. At Foothill Etemadi replaces Zach Johnson who resigned to create more time to pursue a teaching credential. • League track and field finals are prevalent Friday all over O.C. CIF-SS preliminaries in four divisions are May 4 at various sites, including the Division 1 prelims at Trabuco Hills and the Division 3 prelims at Estancia. CIF-SS track and field finals are May 11 at El Camino College, followed by the CIF-SS Masters Meet, the qualifying meet for the CIF State championships, on May 18 at El Camino College. The CIF State meet is May 24 and 25 at Buchanan High’s excellent facility in Clovis. • Orange County boys and girls all-star basketball games are May 4 at Cypress College. • Two-time defending national football champion Mater Dei opens the 2019 seasons with a home game against Centennial of Corona on Aug. 23 at Santa Ana Stadium. The Monarchs are home against Villa Park on Aug. 29. • Orange Lutheran football plays at Centennial in a nonleague game Aug. 30. Servite plays at Bishop Gorman of Las Vegas on Sept. 7. Villa Park is at Mission Viejo on Sept. 13 and plays Servite at Cerritos College on Sept. 20. • A reader requested a summary of O.C. football transfers since the conclusion of the 2018 season. A list of all county football transfers might not fit on the Big A message board off the 57 Freeway. But here are a few of them (with the player’s current school year): sophomore quarterback Peter Costelli from Santa Margarita to Mission Viejo (Costelli was at St. John Bosco as a freshman); sophomore quarterback General Booty from Cornerstone Christian of San Antonio, Texas, to JSerra (Booty was at Corona del Mar as a freshman); defensive end Logan Schwenke from Santa Margarita to Mission Viejo; offensive lineman Brody Crane and tight end Gary Morrison from Santa Margarita to JSerra; quarterback Colt Fulton from Centennial to Santa Margarita; running back Shamonte Rogers from Savanna to Anaheim; and offensive lineman Donovan Ford (6-3, 310) from Texas’ Allen to Mater Dei; and receiver Christian Dixon from Diamond Ranch of Pomona to Mater Dei.

Versailles by Colin Jones paints a vivid picture of how the magnificent French palace has changed throughout the years, yet managed to withstand the conflict of time and a changing nation. When Louis XIV laid out the plans to completely remodel his father’s austere hunting lodge, he was aware of the massive transformation that this […]

Spring has sprung and many animals have been having babies. Every year, in the Spring, my school’s reading curriculum has a few units on animals. We read books and learn about many different types of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, and insects. One of our favorite units is about butterflies. We read the book “Monarch Butterfly” […]

One of my many favorite signs of spring is the very first time I hear the frogs start to sing. Their chorus started up two days ago – much to Gene’s annoyance. It’s not that he doesn’t like frogs, he just doesn’t like when I “scare the hell out of him” by banging on the […]
