In Italy, of all places, True Tamplin thought about the Newport Harbor High boys' soccer team in late August. He hadn't played for the team the past two seasons. Maybe the program was on his mind because he was coming home soon. Maybe it was because he missed playing high school soccer. "I struggled with it and it was eating away at my brain," said Tamplin, who decided not to eat at all one day while in Florence with his family. "I fasted. I asked God, 'Do your plan.' The next day, I got an email from Coach Juan Mares.

Blake Grable had never played in a basketball gym as packed as Corona del Mar High's on Feb. 22. It seemed like it was standing-room only. It seemed like the entire school came to watch the Sea Kings play La Verne Damien in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA playoffs. Grable's uncle, Don, is the athletic director at CdM, and on that night, he told fans to squeeze in to make room for others. There just wasn't enough room for more than 1,000 bodies to find a seat.

When Newport Harbor High hosted a men's water polo pre-Olympic showcase last May, the pool deck was absolutely packed. Many felt that it was an appropriate place to watch some world-class water polo. One of those people was former Corona del Mar and current Stanford men's coach John Vargas. "Orange County, specifically Newport Beach, is the mecca of water polo in the United States," Vargas said to the Daily Pilot at the time. "You should expect something like this to happen here.

As a long-time Newport Beach resident, I was surprised and very disappointed by Mayor Keith Curry's public response to the state Supreme Court's decision on Sunset Ridge Park, as quoted in the Daily Pilot ("Sunset Ridge Park gets OK," March 29) and the Newport Beach-Corona del Mar Patch. I'm not disappointed that Sunset Ridge Park will become a reality. I've always supported that result. If the land is not to be protected and preserved as coastal open space, then a park is the right solution.

Fifty years later, Renee Pantoja hasn't lost the curiosity he had as a 7-year-old. Pantoja was a second-grader at Pomona Elementary School when it first opened in Costa Mesa for the 1961-62 school year. He watched crews seal a rectangular copper box in the wall outside the front gate with the promise it would be opened after 50 years. As the anniversary approached, that capsule weighed on his mind. "I was just excited to find out what was in the box," he said. So he contacted the district with the help of some former school staff and showed crews where to exhume the historical container.

Kevin Rakestraw said he has seen the photo on Twitter. The photo isn't of the 7-foot center from Newport Harbor High. The photo just has his name written inside a large pizza box, with the words "Newport Sucks" in big letters and his last name in smaller letters just below. A player from the Edison boys' basketball team posted the photo on his Twitter account. The night before a game against Newport Harbor in late January, the tweet read "Team Dinner #rakestraw" followed by a link to the photo.

Every two years, Cayman Carter and his family go on vacation around this time of the year. This year's trip is a cruise and it has taken the Carter family to the Caribbean islands. The getaway is a well-deserved one for Carter, who needed some downtime. The year has been a long and grueling one for Carter. He hasn't had much time off since August, when the Corona del Mar High football team opened training camp. Four months later, his season concluded on Dec. 1. He started the month leading the Sea Kings to a CIF Southern Section Southern Division title win. Now, he's going to end the month relaxing.
