HUNTINGTON BEACH — When Sara Noel Harris was in the Newport Beach Police Explorers program as a teenager, she had a reputation for not always listening to rules. Her supervisors hatched a plan one day to make her more docile. The officers in charge — including her father — appointed her sergeant over the other cadets, then, when Harris was out of the room, asked her classmates to disobey every order she gave them. The goal was to show the feisty teen how difficult it was to deal with rebellious types.

It would have been easy for Sage Hill School’s first-year coach J.R. Tolver to say that he entered determined to change the mentality of the football team. The Lightning, after all, suffered through a 2-8 season and there seemed to be a fear that losing had become habit. That could have been seen in Sage Hill’s opener last year, which it lost, 41-6, to Fairmont Prep. The Lightning open again against Fairmont Prep, this time at Sage Hill tonight at 7 p.m. Tolver doesn’t see a losing mentality at Sage Hill.

Newport Beach Councilman Rush Hill on Monday endorsed Councilwoman Leslie Daigle in her bid for state Assembly and strongly criticized one of her opponents in the race, Democrat Robert "Bob" Rush. Hill stated in a press release issued by the Daigle campaign that his peer on the council is best suited to represent the 74th District, which includes Newport, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach and Irvine.

Twenty-five years ago, Jay Johnson applied to be an officer at three police departments: Long Beach, Irvine and Newport Beach. By the time Newport called him back for an interview, he already had a job offer from Long Beach. He took it. He stayed there and climbed the ranks. On Wednesday Johnson, 45, returned to Newport Beach — this time to be sworn in as chief of police. "Every decision that we make, path that we take, will be made with ethics and integrity," Johnson said, emphasizing the team mentality he pledged to encourage as chief.

Itzel Guerrero can't imagine her life without the Wooden Floor. She tries to picture it sometimes, but fails. Most likely, she doesn't want to. So many experiences during her 18 years have taken root in the nonprofit's Santa Ana campus, she admits. Growing up in a household where her older sister Elideth was a gymnast - an expensive undertaking - Guerrero recalls there being no resources for her extracurricular activities. When she was 9, her parents took their friend's advice, introducing their daughter to the world of dance with a hunch that she might enjoy it. Turns out, they were right.

Cox was the first employee at UCI. When former president of the University of California system Clark Kerr commissioned a new university to...

We have definitely ventured into a new era when women’s choice encompasses more than ever before. With octuplets and a 66-year-old women bearing children, it’s amazing and incredibly sad that we still have women of “child-bearing age” incapable of pregnancy. This is certainly a question worth struggling over. While I do think it is important and necessary for doctors to lay out potential problems, I think that women have a right to choose what happens to their bodies.

A Congressional ethics body is investigating whether campaign contributions to Rep. John Campbell (R-Irvine) and seven other congressmen influenced their votes on last year's financial regulatory reform bill.
