Clutching a stuffed dog, 5-year-old Newport Beach resident Julian Dunn sat in the audience for part of a concert at Newport Mesa Church on Saturday as a parade of grade-school pianists, singers and guitar players took the stage to raise money to pay his medical bills. “We’re here today to celebrate Julian’s fire,” Julian’s father, Richard Dunn said, pausing for a second as he choked back the tears. “He’s the sweetest human being on the face of the earth.

NEWPORT BEACH — How many boys does it take to catch a near record-breaking opah fish off Crystal Cove? The answer is three: Randall Hause, 17, Daniel Segerblom, 15, and Sean Segerblom, 12, all of Newport Beach. And they've just about eaten all of the edible meat from the 143-pound catch, dishing it out to friends and neighbors and indulging in a little bit of it themselves. They say it melts in the mouth, kind of like butter. The opah is a deepwater fish more typically caught in Hawaii.

COSTA MESA — Dante Saleh was dominating the first set, and that pumped him up. Not that the talkative Newport Beach resident needed a lot to pump him up this week at the 15th annual Costa Mesa Summer Junior Classic. "One point for 5-2," Saleh said late in that first set Friday, in the boys' 12 singles championship match. "Five-two, baby, 5-2!" Then Saleh hit a solid serve, came in and hit a nice volley, getting to 5-2. His opponent, Jack Ventura-Cruess of Placentia, could only smile on the changeover.

COSTA MESA — Since the inception of the Orange Coast League in 2007, two track and field teams have won every time in league. Costa Mesa’s girls and Laguna Beach’s boys are those two dominant programs. Their winning ways in league ended Wednesday. Each can blame the final event, the girls’ and boys’ 1,600-meter relays for the change. The league’s regular-season finale featured a dramatic finish at Jim Scott Stadium. The Mustangs lost in the girls’ competition, 69-66.

COSTA MESA — More than five hours after a big tennis victory, Josh Tuz was still brimming with confidence. How else can you explain his response to who he would play in a Round of 16 match today? "I don't care who it is, I'm taking him down," Tuz said. The rise of self-esteem came from his upset over the No. 4 seed, Ryan Peyton of Newport Beach, in the boys' 16 singles division of the Costa Mesa Summer Junior Classic. Tuz, who will be a junior at Newport Harbor High, defeated Peyton, 1-6, 6-4, 6-4, at the Costa Mesa Tennis Center.

NEWPORT BEACH — Julian Dunn, 7, did a warm-up dance in his living room Friday morning to his favorite song, "You Dropped a Bomb on Me," by the '80s funk group the Gap Band. Julian, who has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment for an aggressive form of cancer, was gearing up for a special visit at his Newport Beach home. The Game Bus, a converted school bus filled with video game consoles and big-screen TVs, stopped by to treat Julian and his friends to an hour of fun. Julian was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2008.
