Mathis Winkler NEWPORT BEACH -- They worried about noise and an invasion of privacy and pleaded with the City Council for support. Now, after months of discussions, Linda Isle residents are ready to try again to reach a compromise with operators of the Newport Riverboat Restaurant over the use of the boat's decks. Planning commissioners are expected to vote on a use permit for the restaurant at their meeting tonight. The controversy began when the restaurant's former manager asked city officials to allow outdoor dining on the boat's bow and stern decks.

I woke up Saturday morning from a fitful sleep. I should have slept soundly, but my body and mind hadn't yet absorbed a new reality: My beloved St. Louis Cardinals, an imperfect but tenacious bunch who embodied the spirit of team play, overcame a Mt. Everest of adversity in the 2011 season and won it all. By winning Game 7 of the World Series, they engraved another notch in their record as the National League's most successful franchise and...

The back fence in Corona del Mar resident Claudia Schmutzler’s yard is a living art gallery of staghorn ferns. The exotic ferns, which don’t require soil and get moisture from the air, explode like pieces of 3-D art from recycled picture frames Schmutzler hung on her fence. She got the idea after her dog, a springer spaniel named Russell, sniffed out an old picture frame that someone had thrown out in the trash one day. Since then, she’s hunted down old picture frames at yard sales to add to her collection, or made her own using scraps of wood.

When picturing Orange County, one might think of beautiful beaches or luxury shopping, but few would picture limestone cliffs that are 30 million to 40 million years old. On Friday, OC Parks and the Irvine Ranch Conservancy unveiled a viewing deck in Limestone Canyon — not to be confused with Limestone Canyon & Whiting Ranch — so that visitors from a safe space can experience the natural wonders that some call a "mini Grand Canyon....

Marisa O'Neil Pick a card, any card. Now, what are your chances of picking a black card or a red card? Statistics -- a subject that strikes fear in the hearts of many students -- can help predict the odds of drawing one card or another. They can also show if someone stacked the deck with extra cards, as students in Noureddine El Alam's Advanced Placement statistics class at Sage Hill School in Newport Coast learned. "Someone hands you a deck of cards," El Alam told his class Friday as they lined up to draw one card each.

Here are some of the decisions coming out of the Costa Mesa Planning Commission meeting on Monday. CHRISTIAN OUTREACH CENTER PARKING Costa Mesa planning commissioners unanimously approved a request from Christian Outreach Center officials to deviate from usual parking requirements for their new place of worship on Harbor Boulevard. Officials representing the Christian Outreach Center, slated to move into a 1,954-square-foot space in the Commerce Park complex, asked for a conditional-use permit that would reduce the required parking spaces from 25 to six. Plans for the church, which has about 30 members, call for a reception area, office space, sanctuary and restroom on the first floor and a youth room, "clothing and food room," and restroom on the second floor, according to a staff report.

INSIDE CITY HALL BARNACLE BILL'S Council members voted unanimously Monday to allow the owner of a Westside business to build a deck for boat detailing and storage -- a move that overturned previous denials from the Planning Commission and city zoning administrator. Dan Zaccuri, who owns the building where Barnacle Bill's boat repair business operates, had appealed the previous denials for the deck to the highest body in hopes that council members would see things differently than planning commissioners and staffers.

G lenn Deck helps golfers with their swings, but before the swing comes something as or more important for each player to know well. The body comes before the swing. It might seem automatic to think of the body as key to the golf swing, but beyond the backswing and follow-through lie a series of movements that fitness and golf instructors are calling more attention to these days. Deck, instruction director at Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Coast, said the consensus among teachers, doctors and trainers is that the body is the most important part of the golf swing.

The fire extended to the wood deck joists and planks, causing $1,000 in damage, the release said.

Air quality regulators are set to take a first look next week at proposals that could allow Newport Beach and other cities to replace wood-burning fire rings with alternatively fueled ones. The South Coast Air Quality Management District has floated the idea of partnering with Newport on such a pilot program, though agency spokesman Sam Atwood said Thursday that any jurisdiction interested in testing non-wood-burning fire rings would be welcome to participate. "This is going to be completely voluntary in terms of a city or county deciding if they want to install these fire rings," Atwood said.

His time at Harbor View Elementary School's morning flag deck ceremony made him as nervous as just about anything the Army's thrown at him so far. But for Spc. David Gustafson - who served in Afghanistan, Germany and now Fort Drum in upstate New York - it was all in good cheer and in the family. After all, the infantryman was at the Corona del Mar campus as a holiday/birthday surprise for Thomas Marrs, his cousin who turned 10 Friday. After Principal Todd Schmidt announced it was Thomas' birthday, he alluded to Gustafson's service.

Glenn Deck taught when he was being honored for being a great teacher Sunday night at the Balboa Bay Club. During his acceptance speech, the PGA director of instruction for Pelican Hill and Oak Creek Golf Clubs gave a tip to the people in attendance. He told them to find a way for golf to be fun. That was one of the many reasons why Deck was named Teacher of the Year by the PGA of America's Southern California Section. Deck can place the award next to a few others. He has earned past honors as one of Golf Magazine's Top 100 Teachers in America since 2002 and Golf Tips magazine's Top 25 U.S. Instructors in 2012.

My wife, Hedy, and I recently returned from a cruise. It was our third adventure on an ocean liner. We've now been to Alaska twice, and have cruised the North Sea and Baltic from Rotterdam to St. Petersburg. Never one for sailing, I joined the Army in 1964 because of my aversion to things nautical. I turned the Navy down at the last moment because of a queasy stomach. But big ship cruising, I've discovered, is something else entirely. I don't get sick! On our first morning at sea during this most recent voyage, I arose early and sat in the open breeze on our cabin's veranda.

In an office, or on the pool deck coaching girls, Doug Volding has long been a counselor for Corona del Mar High. He resigned as CdM girls' swimming coach in 2009. A year later, he retired from counseling at the high school. Retiring from counseling made sense to Volding. Leaving the girls' swimming position was something harder to take, but necessary as he battled health issues. A comeback seemed unlikely. "I really never wanted to leave the sport, but I was feeling so rotten," Volding said.

Construction will begin in the fall and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2012.
