NEWPORT BEACH — A new mayor took control of the dais Tuesday night and outlined a vision of streamlined city government, revived commercial districts and a more technologically advanced City Council. Mike Henn, a businessman who was reelected in November to his second term on the City Council, assumed responsibility from outgoing Mayor Keith Curry. The council unanimously selected Nancy Gardner to replace Henn as mayor pro tem. Henn said some of his tasks for the coming year include rehabilitating the "deteriorating and under-served areas" like Mariner's Mile, Balboa Village and Lido Marina Village, and privatizing some city services.

In the warm afternoon sunlight, Kim Moss stood at the door of the Costa Mesa Omelette Parlor recalling the time when she brought her 3-year-old son, Nick, and his grandfather, Frank, to the beloved restaurant. Now Nick is 30, and the place he grew up with will not longer be there. “We are sad, we’re all sad to see the place close,” said Moss, who worked there as a waitress for years and will have to look for another job. Vons, which owns the shopping center at 179 E. 17th St., home of the Omelette Parlor for 27 years, served the eatery with a 30-day notice to vacate, said Omelette Parlor owner Susan Adkins.

NEWPORT BEACH — Sitting on an oversized plush chair in baseball legend Chuck Finley's Newport Beach home, actress Tawny Kitaen seems to be in a much different place than she was eight years ago. A soccer goal is visible in the backyard, and her daughter's art covers the refrigerator in the family home. Her adopted dog, Woody, nuzzles Kitaen as she talks about a new off-camera passion: helping others. A volunteer at Kathy's House, a shelter for at-risk women in San Juan Capistrano, and a member of the board of directors at Testimony Life Resources, an alternative counseling center, Kitaen appears to be a far cry from her role as the eccentric star of "The Surreal Life," or the woman battling a dependency on prescription pills on "Celebrity Rehab.

A video that takes aim at a Costa Mesa political organization appeared on YouTube on Wednesday afternoon. Kent Mora, who serves on the city's Pension Oversight Committee, made the nearly two-minute segment that contains a slide show of participants in Tuesday's Costa Mesans for Responsible Government public safety demonstration. The rally took place along Fair Drive before the evening's City Council session. Mora said he made the sarcastic video, titled "CM4RG Union Rally," because of the event's "ambiguity" and "hypocrisy.

Its no fluke that UC Irvine senior Adam Folker is a marketing whiz who has already organized and overseen a handful of companies and dozens of employees. He is, after all, a master at maximizing opportunity. In five years with the Anteaters men's basketball program, Folker has evolved from a offensively challenged, banged-around, then banged-up banger, into a productive, polished and inspirational performer on both sides of the floor. A 6-foot-9, 225-pound post player from Markham, Ontario, Canada - a Toronto suburb known more for slap shots than jump hooks - Folker has also taken advantage of several opportunities off the floor.

The private investigator who followed Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer home from a sports bar and called 911 to report him for drunk driving is a Marine veteran, a divorced father and a former police officer who spearheaded a program aimed at helping underage prostitutes, according to public records. Chris Lanzillo, 42, could not be reached for comment Monday, but aspects of his life can be drawn from court and newspaper accounts from the Inland Empire, where he is believed to reside, as well from military records and on Facebook.

NEWPORT BEACH — Last week, it looked like Roxanne Kaiden might become the new face of Levi's. On July 14, she was pulling in 35% of the votes in a model search, putting her in second place as the future social media spokeswoman for the denim brand. However, on July 15, when it was coming down to the wire, the Newport Beach resident came in short. Although she was excited about the competition, she took the loss in stride, Tweeting July 20, "The Levi's Girl contest is over and while I didn't win I have got to thank all the supporters!"
