It always hurts when a city loses a piece of its history. And unfortunately Newport Beach lost a landmark in the form of the Westcliff Drive Coco's earlier this month. Sure, there are other Coco's at which to enjoy a double chocolate silk pie. In fact, there are four other Coco's in Newport Beach, the city where the restaurant was founded. And there's yet another one in Costa Mesa. But not all of them have history -- 40 years of history to be exact.

Patrick Laverty With a roster hovering around 20 players, Sage Hill School's football team could use a midseason break to rest the lingering injuries that occur over the course of a season. The Lightning will get a chance to rest next week because of a bye, but they'd like to enter that bye week with a victory against Ribet Academy. Sage Hill will play host to Ribet Academy Friday at 3:30 p.m. The Fighting Frogs (2-2) come into the contest on a high after defeating La Verne Lutheran last week, 65-0.

When Elvis Presley was drafted into the Army in the late 1950s, cries of "say it isn't so!" rang out virtually in unison from teenage girls across the country. Shortly thereafter, the Broadway musical "Bye Bye Birdie" was born. Creators Michael Stewart (book), Charles Strouse (music) and Lee Adams (lyrics) weren't exactly household names in the business, but they were astute enough to capitalize on the mood of the country for their social satire.

Rick Devereux The rollercoaster that has been the Costa Mesa High 2004 football season took yet another dip this week when Coach Tom Baldwin was suspended by the CIF Southern Section for a rule violation. Baldwin will not be allowed to have any contact with the football team before, during or after the Mustangs' Golden West League contest against Orange at 7 p.m. tonight at Orange Coast College. Costa Mesa opened the season Sept. 7 against Brea Olinda in what is referred to as Week 0. Section rules stipulated that the first week of the football season began on Sept.

Few musicals this side of “West Side Story” and “Grease” have celebrated teenagers quite so effectively as “Bye Bye Birdie,” which this year joins the former example as a certified antique, having first hit the Broadway boards in 1960. Now enjoying a glorious revival at Costa Mesa’s Vanguard University, this satirical musical comedy — inspired by the drafting of Elvis Presley in 1958 — seems as fresh and lively as it did half a century ago, when the movie version introduced a young Swedish charmer to the world named Ann-Margret.

'BYE BYE BIRDIE' When was the last time you went to a school play? Remember the excitement of watching children perform for the first time, struggling nervously with their lines as they bounce across the stage in full costume? Watching them get comfortable with their talent. Take an hour or so on Monday and go watch the energetic fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders of Mariners Elementary School sing and dance in their last performance of "Bye Bye Birdie."

Four years before Rita Moreno won an Oscar for "West Side Story" back in 1962, Chita Rivera created the role of Anita on Broadway. Before Janet Leigh feigned Latino heritage about the same time in "Bye Bye Birdie," Rivera had been there first, as the original Rosie. Before Catherine Zeta-Jones won her Oscar for "Chicago," Rivera had created her character of Velma Kelly in 1975. Tuesday, Chita Rivera's lengthy career will be celebrated at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in a new musical, "Chita Rivera: The Dancer's Life," running through March 25. Written by noted playwright and four-time Tony-winner Terrence McNally ("Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune")

It's been a half a century since Chita Rivera broke out of the chorus and into history as Anita in the original Broadway production of "West Side Story," but you couldn't tell it by looking at the lady herself. Rivera, who headlines the musically autobiographical show "Chita Rivera: The Dancer's Life" at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, can kick up her heels and belt out a show-stopping number with the best of them — no matter that she once suffered a devastating leg injury in an automobile accident and that she turned 74 two months ago. Her life, it seems, would make a good musical with all the appropriate highs and lows — from the "Dancing on the Kitchen Table" days with her large Latino family in the nation's capital through the first ballet class, her "gypsy" days in early 1950s musicals and into the biggies like "West Side Story," "Bye Bye Birdie," "Sweet Charity" and "Chicago."

CORONA DEL MAR Only a bye week can stop juggernaut Corona del Mar High these days. The Sea Kings enter the break after routing Capistrano Valley, 43-14, at Davidson Field last week, helping them close out nonleague play at 5-0. CdM, ranked No. 1 in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division poll, has won 15 straight games dating back to last season.

ANAHEIM —The Corona del Mar High football team blew off more than steam after suffering its first loss of the season last week. The Sea Kings returned to the field Saturday night and blew out Magnolia, 52-13, at Western High. It is hard to believe CdM actually trailed after the first play from scrimmage went for a touchdown in the nonleague game. CdM (4-1), ranked ninth in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division poll, responded with a much-needed victory after losing the Battle of the Bay last week at Newport Harbor.

UC Irvine men's basketball coach Russ Turner said recently that he had yet to exhale with any form of relaxation since being hired in early April. And regardless of how well the Anteaters do in Turner's first season, they will not have any chance to relax with a bye in the Big West Conference Tournament. The event, which moves this season from the Anaheim Convention Center to the Honda Center, March 10-12, will ditch the format that had awarded the top two regular-season finishers with byes into the semifinals.

FULLERTON — The UC Irvine men’s basketball team was playing for a chance at the No. 4 seed in the upcoming Big West Tournament. But Saturday’s game at Cal State Fullerton was more about three than four. The Anteaters took care of what they could, topping the Titans, 65-62, in the Big West regular-season finale in front of 2,781 at Titan Gym. The win put UCI in position to claim the valuable No. 4 seed, which comes with a first-day bye. But UC Santa Barbara beat visiting Long Beach State, 76-75, later Saturday, to bump UCI to the No. 5 seed.
