Alyaa Abdulghany has heard plenty of compliments about her game and her great potential in golf. She'll smile and say, "thank you," but in no way does that indicate she is content with the praise. "People will say that I'm good when I'm out there, but I'm not sure about that," said Abdulghany, Corona del Mar High's freshman phenom. "I know I just want to do better than what I did that day or the day before. " It's this type of drive that keeps those compliments coming and several accolades too. Her motivation keeps her on track to achieve her goals: for this year to reach the CIF state championship; after high school to play in college and put herself in position to turn pro. Remember that name, it's pronounced Ah-lee-yuh Ahb-dool-gon-ee.

From his wheelchair in the Corona del Mar High School gym, Aaron Rubin held up one finger to indicate "yes" and two fingers for "no" as he answered questions about a drug addiction that led him to a catastrophic overdose. "This is Aaron," said his mother, Sherrie Rubin. "Aaron overdosed on OxyContin and prescription meds when he was 23. He was in a coma for three and a half weeks. He had a heart attack and two strokes. " Aaron, now 31, can no longer speak, Sherrie explained, and only about one quarter of his brain was undamaged after the strokes.

Aralia Street residents may soon rest easy. The Newport Beach City Council on Tuesday night approved a resolution to establish a one-hour parking limit on the street for any cars without a permit. The one-hour limit would apply between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. on school days. The vote marked a major step in what residents describe as a years-long battle to have their voices heard. Students at the nearby Corona del Mar High have been clogging the spaces in front of the homes on the street rather than park in school lots because of the convenience.
