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.

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]

West Newport could become home to the Newport Beach Police Department's new headquarters, Mayor Rush Hill told the Corona del Mar Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday. But no specific sites are under consideration, he explained, as the city begins to examine alternatives to the current location on the outskirts of Newport Center. West Newport requires a stronger police presence and lacks community centers, such as those found in other parts of the city, Hill explained following his remarks to a group of about 50 gathered for the chamber's networking lunch at Five Crowns restaurant.

The detailed cheating scheme that resulted in the suspension of roughly a dozen Corona del Mar High School students probably began in April 2013, court documents show. The students are accused of attaching a keylogger - a small device that can be placed in the back of a computer to monitor keystrokes - to several teachers' computers to swipe logins and passwords, allegedly with the help of a private tutor. With the recorded data, the students allegedly altered grades and accessed English, science and history exams, some at the honors and Advanced Placement levels.

Students involved in the Corona del Mar High School grade-changing incident may not be forced to leave the district. The roughly dozen CdM students accused of hacking into the high school's computers to access tests and change grades are facing various disciplinary actions, including expulsion and stipulated expulsion, which allow them to transfer to another NMUSD high school, said district spokeswoman Laura Boss. Stipulated expulsions also seal students disciplinary records, so they are not available during the college admissions process.

Ruth Jolley likes to call it her "little oasis. " At the base of a hillside terraced with grapevines behind her Corona del Mar house, a rainbow of leafy greens basked in the sun one morning last week. Chard and peppery arugula sprouted from one 4-foot by 8-foot raised garden bed, while a kale selection that would make even the hippest foodie's head spin grew in another. Branches of a squat Satsuma orange tree drooped with fruit. A few yards away, snap pea tendrils crawled up a small trellis and bursts of magenta peeked out from beneath French radish leaves.

The first day back from the holiday break began with bad news for the Corona del Mar High boys' basketball team. On Monday, senior Kevin Manchester injured his elbow in practice. Coach Ryan Schachter said Manchester slightly tore his ulnar collateral ligament and his season is most likely over. The timing isn't ideal, losing a two-year starter before the start of Pacific Coast League play, but that is where CdM found itself at the end of the school week. The Sea Kings opened league against Irvine on Friday.
