Newport Beach is a beautiful, vibrant community with a spectacular yacht harbor that has a long history of accommodating all manner of watercraft. We're passionate about our town and harbor, and about boats. Everyone has an opinion about what boats should be gracing our waters. If I could have my way, I'd only allow classic sailboats on the harbor, although I have to admit I like those big futuristic yachts at the Balboa Bay Club.

JOSEPH N. BELL One of the more significant contributions of my generation to the Midwestern culture, in which I was raised, was the domestic cocktail hour. It took root in Indiana and Illinois, where I lived after World War II, then was exported wherever we moved, causing some resistance in other American cultures less advanced -- like that of my wife, who was raised in Southern California and had no grasp of the blessings of the cocktail hour in the early years of our marriage.

People often say that following one's passion will lead to success. American entrepreneur Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA franchise, modifies that statement by offering "that success comes from following one's best effort. " Last week in Orange County, one woman proved that passion combined with effort can indeed make a discernible difference. Elizabeth An , chief executive of House of An, joined her extended family - including husband Gordon Clune , grandmother Diana An , parents Helene and Danny An and sisters Hannah, Jacqueline, Monique and Catherine - in offering their business' support and unmatched passion and effort.

Gurney seems to be. He alluded to it quite liberally in “The Dining Room” and seems obsessed with it in “The Cocktail Hour,” the latest production at the Newport Theater Arts Center.

A jury found an Irvine woman guilty Wednesday morning in connection with a 2006 accident that killed a Costa Mesa teacher. Janene Johns, 53, was found guilty of vehicular manslaughter after hitting Candace Tift Aug. 23, 2006 with her Lexus as Tift was riding her bike. Prosecutors said Johns was on a cocktail of prescription drugs Xanax, Ambien sleeping pills and cough medicine when the accident happened. Johns' defense tried to argue that she was so grief-stricken by the death of her husband weeks before the accident that she was in an unconscious state when the accident happened, meaning she was not liable.
