On March 29, the Daily Pilot published a letter from Jennifer Keller of Corona del Mar regarding John Wayne Airport. I was glad to see this letter because it convinced me I was not imagining hearing things. I have lived in Corona del Mar for 35 years and often read about the people who lived in the Back Bay and Eastbluff. I felt sorry for these folks but was glad it was not in my backyard. Well, after returning from an extended trip last summer, I thought something had changed with the noise from the aircraft.

He faces up to 20 years in prison.

IRVINE — With one minute to go, Corona del Mar High boys’ basketball coach Ryan Schachter saw his top player dance too much on the court. Danny Cheek lost his rhythm and the ball in mid-air at University. Ramon Mejia grabbed it, and with the shot clock close to expiring, Schachter couldn’t yell out a play to run. Mejia said he knew what he was doing. From way out, closer to midcourt than the three-point line, the junior guard swished a shot. Mejia delivered the dagger as the lead grew to nine and the Sea Kings were about to clinch at least a share of the Pacific Coast League title against the defending league champion on Tuesday night.
