From a news perspective, the 1990s in Newport-Mesa had it all. Million-dollar embezzlements by officials in a city and a school district. A sexual harassment scandal in the Newport Beach Police Department that took down the chief and his top lieutenant. A hard-fought and highly emotional political campaign over a proposed airport that divided the north and the south. An ongoing environmental story. An international sports star in our backyard. A devastating car crash and its aftermath, including what many called a modern miracle.

Deirdre Newman Steve Womack is one lucky guy. The 14-year-old Victorville resident is the only boy in the 14-member Shenanigans' Youth Theater, which belted out a bevy of Broadway show tunes on Wednesday afternoon on the Heritage Stage. Then Womack's luck suddenly ran out as he paraded onstage dressed in a coconut bra, grass skirt, pink lei and blond wig as a girl dressed as a male sailor crooned "Honeybun" from the musical "South Pacific" to him. "You've just got to swallow your pride and get out there," said Steve, good-naturedly.

The Sage Hill School football team wanted to improve its passing. Don't let that make you think they are going to stop rushing, though. The Lightning, ranked No. 10 in CIF Southern Section Division XIII, excelled in all facets of the game, pummeling visiting Sherman Indian, 52-8, in a nonleague game Friday night. Sage Hill amassed 298 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. As expected, Don Ayres (140) and Keya Manshadi (58) earned the majority of the yards.

The tale, largely in his words, was riveting. It recounted the April 15 stabbing of a 16-year-old on the Westside. A Westside he had just moved away from. A Westside he thought he knew and understood. John, whose name the Pilot changed to protect his identity, does not seem to need the protection. He is not cowering away after the attack, in which he was stabbed several times in the head, neck and hand and chased. Talking to the Pilot in a May 10 story, "A new Westside for stabbing victim," was just a first step.

Stefanie Frith By Stefanie Frith NEWPORT BEACH -- Freezing. Charlie Fisher, 18, said this was the only way to describe the 55-degree water that he and 77 other hopeful lifeguards tried out in Sunday morning off Newport Beach Pier. "It was a lot colder than I expected," said the Orange resident, who came in first at the tryouts. "But I have been wanting to do this for a long time. But, whew, it was cold out there." The Newport Beach lifeguard tryouts take place each year and typically, about 80 people attend, Newport Beach Fire Department Lt. John Blauer said.

FRESNO — The temperature was already a bit chilly for some of the Newport Beach area runners who came into the race with the cold. The conditions just weren’t ideal for many of the runners competing on the three local high school boys’ cross country teams, Newport Harbor, Corona del Mar and Sage Hill School, at the CIF State championships at Woodward Park’s 5K course in Fresno Saturday. By the time Newport Harbor ran in the Division II race just past noon, the temperature had risen into the 60s. But a couple of Sailors were trying to get over their colds, another over-eating on Thanksgiving, resulting in a seventh-place showing, which proved to be disappointing since they were expecting more.
