About 11 p.m. Thursday, Costa Mesa police Sgt. Pat Wessel and Officer Jason Chamness eyed two teens skateboarding down the alley that borders the Placentia Avenue fire station on the Westside. As the officers pulled up, the smell of pot emanated from the area, indicating the teens may have been getting into trouble. Police found a blue, prescription-style bottle containing marijuana in one of the youth's backpacks. They also learned one of the skaters was 17 and out past curfew. Officer David Sevilla phoned the boy's mom, notifying her of the location where she could pick up her son, before taking him to a drop-off point in Orange.

With the school year ending, Newport Beach police this summer will again step up enforcement of the city's curfew for minors. Curfew for children younger than 18 is enforced from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily. Increased enforcement is set to begin Friday, according to a statement from the Newport Beach Police Department. After-hours crimes committed by juveniles are up slightly, which has necessitated the need to increase curfew patrols, police said Thursday. In addition, police said, they want to protect minors from becoming crime victims.

A lawyer negotiating John Wayne Airport noise restrictions said Wednesday evening that the airport's nighttime curfew would likely be preserved during this round of deliberations. Barbara E. Lichman, executive counsel for the Airport Working Group, told the activist organization's members that the curfew did not appear to be a point of contention. The sleeping-hours ban is among John Wayne Airport's unusual operating restrictions, many of which are set to expire in 2015. Activist groups, Newport Beach city officials, county administrators and others have met three times to renegotiate the airport's guidelines, Lichman said.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT BEACH -- City leaders have added five years to the nighttime curfew in a proposal to extend flight restrictions at John Wayne Airport, potentially securing protection against the roar of jets over houses in the city through 2020. The curfew, put in place in the late 1960s, was added to the 1985 settlement agreement that led to the installation of a bevy of controls on flights, noise and development at the airport. Under the terms of a proposed extension, which would continue the flight limits through Dec. 31, 2015, the airport's curfew couldn't be changed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors until Dec. 31, 2020.

Marisa O'Neil Air travel returned to normal Wednesday after a communication outage grounded flights throughout Southern California on Tuesday evening, canceling 64 flights here in Orange County. It caused later flights to leave after the airport's curfew. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating why radio communication failed at the Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center in Palmdale for nearly five hours on Tuesday. The outage started just before 5 p.m. and kept hundreds of flights grounded at seven airports until about 8:30 p.m. when communications started coming back on line.

While I applaud the efforts of everyone at the Airport Working Group and Newport Beach Mayor Nancy Gardner in regards to the John Wayne Airport curfew, there is no comfort in your headline, "JWA curfew likely to survive," March 8. Those of us who have been around for awhile understand that there is little truth (French phrase meaning "none") coming from anyone connected with JWA. Going into our third straight year of declining passenger numbers, we now have a sparkling new, multigazillion-dollar terminal where all these-non passengers can choose not to go. I, for one, am not hoping for a pat on the head and keeping everything the same.

This is a special message to the Costa Mesa Eight, the kids who were caught toilet-papering Mesa Verde Drive on the first day of school last week and cited for curfew violations. In a strict sense, or perhaps even a not-so-strict sense, decorating the trees along Mesa Verde Drive in Costa Mesa on the first day of school is vandalism. I’ve never thought of it that way, but some do and it is important for you to understand their position. You don’t have to agree — just understand.

ORANGE — The scene Thursday night at the Sheriff’s Department training facility resembled the calm before the storm. Illuminated by flood lights from the command post, more than a hundred officers, investigators and probation officers sipped coffee, ate danishes and told jokes in the parking lot. They were moments from fanning out for their night’s mission: Round up all juveniles found loitering in the streets after curfew, bring...

At its meeting Tuesday night, the Newport Beach City Council took what Mayor Keith Curry called the "historic" step of approving a memorandum of understanding that the city hopes will set the terms of John Wayne's Airport operations far into the future. While the proposed agreement still must be approved by the other three parties to the original 1985 legal settlement, which set the airport's passenger caps and strict curfews, city officials have said they are optimistic that the terms laid out in the memorandum will make it through a county-led environmental review process.

What's the most important issue facing the city? The threat of future expansion of JWA, as well as lifting of the curfew in the year 2020. What is your opinion of how the Greenlight law is affecting the city, and what is your position on plans to build a hotel at Marinapark? Greenlight: Ballot Box planning across the board is just not healthy for any community. It does and has stifled reasonable growth. Marinapark: Initially, I did not believe this was a good project for the city, as it is proposed to be built on public land.

It was an incandescent moment of enlightenment. And I blew it off. Though a revelation for me personally, it served for a considerable time as just a way station for my life's journey, failing to change me in any substantive way. The "moment" I've alluded to occurred one sultry August evening in 1965 when I was a 20-year-old American soldier stationed in Seoul, South Korea. Shortly after the midnight curfew had taken effect, I was walking across a U.S. military compound on my way back to my barracks following a night on the town.

After nearly two years of closed-door negotiations, Newport Beach Mayor Keith Curry announced Thursday that the strict curfews governing John Wayne Airport's operations could remain in place through 2035 if a proposed airport settlement agreement extension is approved. But limits on the number of passengers and flights that can pass through the airport would grow starting in 2021. "This is a balanced approach that will follow the law and maintain the protection of our community," Curry said at a press conference in the Newport Beach Police Department auditorium.
