"It was quieter, more peaceful," said Craig Batley, president of the West Newport Beach Assn. "Some residents are going to disagree because they were impacted more. But overall, it was an improvement." Police and city officials met at City Council chambers this week to review the Fourth of July weekend's problems and successes for police and residents.

It's almost that time of again, when Newport Beach police clamp down on the Balboa Peninsula as both drunken and sober holiday revelers turn the area into a virtual street and beach party for the Fourth of July. "The biggest issue is the crowds," said Sgt. Evan Sailor. "You have a lot of people coming down to celebrate, a lot of people drinking. You put that mix together, it can become a volatile situation." Last year, police arrested 119 people in Newport Beach on the Fourth of July.
