The blood that remained cool amid the cold now flows through Bob Ctvrtlik. It’s in his veins, the lines run, too, through his three sons. That blood that kept Josef Ctvrtlik alive while steps away from a torturous death, resides somewhere deep in his youngest son.

Three people were arrested in Long Beach Tuesday after police said they were involved in a dramatic armed bank robbery in Newport Beach less than an hour earlier. About 11 a.m., two men walked into the Bank of America, 3300 E. Coast Hwy., in Corona del Mar, wearing dark clothes, dark sunglasses, fake beards and brandishing handguns. The men ordered employees and bank customers to lie on the ground while they hopped the teller counter and took cash before fleeing, police said.

Bryce Alderton Down at Peninsula Park, mere steps from the sand and surf of Newport Beach that attracts surfers and bodyboarders, lies a pitch of grass for a sport that is rarely associated with the Southern California landscape. The sport isn't sanctioned by CIF and often its only exposure comes from a slot on late-night television, unless you have a satellite system that grants access to professional games. But beginning today and lasting through mid-April, players on the Back Bay Rugby Football Club will run, pass, tackle and no doubt collect enough grass stains to warrant a double dose of detergent, in a rite that has become a 20-year tradition in Newport Beach.

Barry Faulkner BELMONT SHORE - By the time Newport Harbor High's record-setting 4x100-yard freestyle relay came down to world-class anchor man Aaron Peirsol, the Sailors had already shown they were in a class by themselves. Junior leadoff man Andrew Cole opened a body-length lead, which senior Ryan Lean more than doubled and sophomore Michael Bury expanded to more than three body lengths. Peirsol, who also anchored Newport Harbor boys swimming victories in the 6x50 free and the 4x50 backstroke at the Millikan/Southern Section Relay Championships at Belmont Plaza, then glided through four laps of the 25-yard pool in a team-best 45.06 seconds to complete the 3:10.
