The Devil Dogs are on their way to Newport Beach. The city of Newport Beach and the 1st Battalion, 1st Marines Adoption Committee are set to welcome U.S. Marines from Camp Pendleton to Thursday's Mess Night. The black-tie dinner, which will be held at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort, is a tradition for Marines who are preparing to serve in a combat situation. "It's like a salute to the warrior," Arches owner Dan Marcheano said. Last October, about 180 Marines visited Newport for Mess Night before being deployed to Iraq.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- A regional water agency has fined the Balboa Bay Club $60,000 for 20 separate violations of raising sulfide levels in nearby waters beyond acceptable limits. The high sulfide levels in the bay waters near the club are caused by construction work, said Gary Stewart, chief of surveillance and enforcement for the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board. Stewart explained that ground water at the site has been pumped out to allow the construction of some underground facilities of the club.

The opening of the summer season at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort unfolded with pride and purpose on a recent Sunday afternoon, in what has become a tradition in Newport Beach. Beyond the social mingling of both longtime Newporters and young families with children in tow, worthy students from the Newport-Mesa School District were presented with much-deserved scholarship funds to be used in the pursuit of higher education.

Deepa Bharath Jerry Dalebout had his idiosyncrasies. He took a yardstick and made little marks on the rod to make sure the clothes in his closet hung exactly an inch-and-a-half apart. Jerry also put tiny dots on his white socks so he could tell them apart. One pair had one dot, the next had two. He went up to six dots sometimes. He just didn't want his socks all mixed up. Jerry was meticulous about cleaning his car. His black Mercedes 560 SEL was the love of his life.

June Casagrande It wasn't until after making a case for her husband to an enthusiastic audience of Republican women that Maria Shriver was confronted with the question most salient in reporters' minds: How does the wife of gubernatorial hopeful Arnold Schwarzenegger respond to accusations of sexual misconduct by her husband? "I think his statement speaks for itself," Shriver said before a cluster of news cameras on Friday at the Balboa Bay Club. "He apologized, and that's courageous."

B.W. COOK There are many citizens of the O.C. who care deeply about charitable involvement. If I were to make a list of the Top 10, there is one Newport lady who would be included. She is Sue Hook, and cystic fibrosis is the focus of her fight. Last week in Newport Beach, Hook, her husband Dave and a ballroom of some 500 patrons came together in their summer finery to fight an ongoing battle with an insidious disease that literally steals the breath away from children and young adults who are afflicted.

Greer Wylder The Balboa Bay Club & Resort just got a $65-million revamp. It's now divided into two sections: a luxury hotel -- a member of Preferred Hotels & Resort Worldwide -- and a members-only club. It has the same driveway and the Terrace Apartments building. The rest has completely changed. The resort now has an Italian look, spreading over 15 waterfront acres. Even the signature entry fountain on the Coast Highway has that Italian flair. Gone is the dated architecture and faded interior.

When Edith Sandoval and Tony Figueroa heard Barack Obama planned to be at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach Sunday they knew they had to be there. Problem was it cost a lot of money to meet the Democratic presidential contender. If you wanted to shake his hand and get a picture taken with him it would cost you $28,500. If you just wanted to hear one of his stump speeches in person and see the man that would cost $2,300. Why the difference? Because the maximum an individual can give a presidential contender is $2,300 in the general election.
