Newport Beach officials are in talks to buy a seven-acre parcel on East Coast Highway that could become home to a new city hall. The property at 1602 E. Coast Highway in Newport Center is now occupied by the Balboa Bay Club's tennis club, but the club's lease is set to expire soon, said Newport Beach City Councilman Tod Ridgeway, who chairs the council's building committee. "It is a piece that we're looking at for a possible city hall site," Councilman Ed Selich said. "We're appraising the property, and we've had discussions with the property owners, and some are interested in selling and some are less interested in selling, so we're trying to find out what its value is before we move in any direction on it."

Playing with Frank Sinatra at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel for three weeks in 1946 is one of the highlights of famed pianist and band leader Page Cavanaugh's career, and there are many more. His band also played for the likes of Doris Day, Mel Torme and Tony Bennett long before Cavanaugh became a staple at the Balboa Bay Club and Resort's entertainment lounge Duke's Place, where he has performed live jazz every Thursday evening for 10 years. Tonight, the public is invited to celebrate Cavanaugh's career and his 85th birthday with cake and champagne, and of course, live entertainment from the Page Cavanaugh Trio.

The national debate over health care spilled onto the streets of Newport Beach on Tuesday when protesters picketed in front of the Balboa Bay Club and Resort to oppose government-implemented health-care reform. The protesters voiced their disapproval of Rep. Loretta Sanchez, who was at the resort for a scheduled fundraiser at 8:30 a.m. Sanchez has shown public support for government-implemented health-care reform, much to the dismay of the picketers. In a written statement on her website, Sanchez said, “I have made it clear all along that our health-care system needs significant reform, and that I believe a public option is necessary to reduce the overall cost of health care for the American people.

What do you do when it turns out a wealthy investor can't actually come up with $174.5 million as promised? If you're Beverly Ray Parkhurst, who owns the landmark Balboa Bay Club and Resort in Newport Beach, you call off your planned sale of the company to Winston Chung of Hong Kong and entertain other offers, as the Times reported Tuesday. And with your financials improving, you may decide to hold off on a sale altogether for now, a top club official said. Chung, a battery and electric-vehicle entrepreneur, attracted considerable attention over the last two years by investing in Southern California specialty-vehicle makers and promising to establish a green transportation industry in the Southland.

However famous the Balboa Bay Club may be, visitors are apparently having trouble finding it. No matter that the club has been operating in its same location since 1948, or that a guard shack thought to be intimidating was recently removed to make the entry feel more inviting. The Balboa Bay Resort - the public side of the club - continually gets calls from people who can't figure out where to turn, concierge Patrick Hynes told City Council members during their meeting Tuesday.
