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.

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.

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.

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.

When Andrew Francini and Nate Pozin aren't playing soccer for Corona del Mar High, you can find the two playing inside a garage on Point Loma Drive. They cannot blast the soccer ball inside, just music. Francini and Pozin are part of a three-member Indie Rock band. The band's name is "Point Loma" and it named itself after the street it jams on. The teenagers use Pozin's garage as their jam pad and it can get loud whenever Francini is on guitar, Pozin is on the drums, and Kyle Mohan is on the mic. Neighbors can hear the three CdM seniors rock out and they have complained.

In the CIF Southern Section postseason, no measure of respect is awarded free. It's earned, one possession, one game, one victory at a time. Perhaps no team in the 3AA Division boys' basketball playoffs knows this better than Palm Desert High, a team that entered Friday's second-round game at Corona del Mar seeking respect as much as a win. The No. 13-seeded Aztecs, who went 12-0 to win the Desert Valley League, have made the playoffs six...

The first home game of the postseason felt more like an away game Thursday night for the Corona del Mar High girls' basketball team. The first week of the CIF Southern Section playoffs also is "ski week" in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, so student supporters were at a bare minimum. There were only about 30 CdM fans in the stands at opening tip-off. Visiting Orange High, by contrast, had a loud and spirited student section and brought cheerleaders. "At times it felt like [an away game]
