Lolita Harper Pat Huak is putting a little leisure back in her life. After vowing to work until her 80th birthday, the former toy store employee has surpassed her goal and now spends her time walking her scenic Corona del Mar neighborhood and attending as many sporting events as possible. With six grandsons in the area, all involved in various sporting events, that task in itself is a full time job, she joked. "I felt pretty good staying at Toy Boat until I was 80," Huak said.

IRVINE — Corona del Mar High tennis senior Carson Williams does not know the name of the mystery man who he hit with last weekend in Ojai. Williams said the man was in the men's open division of the 114th annual Ojai Tennis Tournament, and he needed a warmup partner. He hit with the man for about 90 minutes. "I couldn't find him on the draw," Williams said. "He said his first name is Dane, but that must have been short for something. He was really good. He needed a warmup [partner]

In terms of the rankings, the result of Wednesday's Pacific Coast League girls' lacrosse match had to be considered an upset. Beckman came into the match ranked No. 4 in Southern California by laxpower.com, and CdM was No. 10. The Patriots, who own impressive wins over Los Alamitos and Mater Dei, were also the top-ranked team in Orange County. CdM was again at the No. 10 spot. The team that always seems to have the "LAX power" in the league is Beckman. But CdM might just be ready to change that this year.

Corona del Mar High seniors Josh Kliger and Carson Williams played high-quality doubles Friday afternoon at CdM. That's nothing new for the Sea Kings' team captains and No. 1 doubles team, but they definitely were playing well against David Ball and Vikram Chari of the Menlo School of Atherton. In the end, it wasn't quite enough. Ball and Chari rallied from a break of serve down to win the set 8-7 in a tiebreaker. The set seemed indicative of the match. CdM battled, but Menlo was just too good.

Standing on the sidewalk in Corona del Mar, 25-year-old Ashley Sourapas consulted her map. "We skipped one, but I don't know where it is," she said, looking up again to scan the storefronts across the street. Sourapas was searching for the missing stop on the Corona del Mar Bridal Walk, a Sunday afternoon affair that sent brides-to-be on a tour of the varied wedding offerings local businesses had to offer. Looking at everything from wedding venues to bridal dress boutiques, about 26 brides wandered the short stretch of Pacific Coast Highway during the six-hour event, which ended with a complimentary cocktail reception at Five Crowns.

The new sports complex, Bill Sumner insisted, will not be a 5,000-seat behemoth of a stadium. Its lights will not shine into neighbors' homes through the night, the longtime Corona del Mar High School track coach said. And its footprint, Sumner added, will not be any larger than the aging, patched-up track and field that are already there. Sumner - who is spearheading the high school's efforts to revamp its outdoor sports facilities - wanted to make that much clear Thursday, as he showed off a series of illustrations depicting a state-of-the-art field complex that would seat about 1,400 and include lights, new bathrooms, two team rooms and two snack bars.

In the spring, Corona del Mar High's Kelly Tam played on the same girls' club basketball team with the starters on the San Juan Hills basketball team. "I know how they play," Tam said. Tam reminded her club teammates how dangerous she can be with the ball in her hands. In the final minute of the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA playoffs, the host Sea Kings went to Tam with the game on the line on Wednesday. She hadn't made a basket all night. She wasn't even CdM's first option.

Two former planning commissioners will face off in the race for the Newport Beach City Council seat for District 6. Scott Peotter, who served on the commission from 2006 to 2010, announced his bid Tuesday for the seat, which is currently held by Nancy Gardner. He will face Michael Toerge, who served on the Planning Commission for more than 10 years. The way the city spends its funds should be changed, according to Peotter, who pointed to the new Civic Center as symbolic of an irresponsible council.

A new Farmers & Merchants Bank opened with a Roaring '20s-themed party Jan. 30 in Corona del Mar. The event featured vintage cars, a red carpet lined with "clamoring paparazzi," newsies, jazz singers and appetizers, according to a news release. About 200 guests attended the party at the recently renovated bank location on the corner of MacArthur Boulevard and East Coast Highway. The 4,000-square-foot bank building was modeled after F&M headquarters in downtown Long Beach.

Corona del Mar High senior girls' soccer goalie Kendall Mulvaney said she knew Fountain Valley was going to shoot to the right - her left - in the shootout. It worked the first time the teams played, in late December when the Barons won a consolation game at the North Orange County Classic via shootout. But Friday night at Jim Scott Stadium, Mulvaney, the four-year varsity player, was ready. And, while CdM surely has a long way to go on its quest for its first-ever CIF title, the Sea Kings just as surely have been giving their fans their money's worth in the last three games.
