Donations for a statue of Ronald Reagan have poured in, with about $42,000 of the $50,000 goal pledged or in hand, City Councilman Keith Curry said. Much of the money was collected and pledged at a Jan. 27 screening of a film about Reagan, he said. About 300 people attended the event "that brought back many fond memories by people in the audience," he said. "The artist was there, and the design was very well received," he said. The statue will be placed in a public area that has yet to be determined, but possible suggestions have included the new Civic Center park or the Central Library.

Newport Beach Mayor Michael F. Henn gave a State of the City speech to members of the Corona del Mar Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, offering a sneak peek of topics likely to be addressed at the upcoming City Council 2011 Priorities Meeting.

"In a word, it is excellent," he said, describing how city staff successfully carved $8 million in savings in the 2010 fiscal year's budget and how they are pulling out another $18 million this year, all while opening the new OASIS Senior Center and "smartly" building a new Civic Center and park complex that will be complete by the end of 2012.

The $1-million project would replace dilapidated restrooms with 3,000 square feet of locker rooms and would be the final improvement to the aquatic center, which was built in 1990, said Angela Kraus, a parent volunteer who spoke to the CdMHS PTA on Wednesday morning. Other improvements have included adding a scoreboard, shade structure and snack bar. "Every item on our wish list has been completed except a locker room," she said.

And there was a guy flailing about, bobbing up and down. This guy did not look good, and I thought he had been bit by a shark. " Wills-King, 17, a Corona del Mar High School senior, said he was about 200 feet out and the man was another 25 feet past him. "I was immediately fearful," he said.
