Newport Harbor High Coach Jeff Brinkley was disappointed about how the Sailors ended the regular season. A loss with a chance at a share of the Sunset League title wasn't the way he wanted Newport Harbor to finish. But the Sailors have a chance for redemption in the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs. Newport Harbor (5-5) is one of five Newport-Mesa area teams in the playoffs, which begin Friday. "You obviously don't want to go out like that," said Brinkley, whose team opens at Dana Hills (5-5)

Playing with a bruised kidney and lung, Cole Norris looked beat, but not defeated. The junior went into halftime with his team, Newport Harbor High, down by 10 points. The game plan in the first half didn't work much against Fountain Valley on Friday. Coach Jeff Brinkley told his staff during the break that the Sailors needed to come out and throw the ball. Norris turned it on in the final two quarters. His right arm proved to be more than enough for the Sailors to get back into contention for a Sunset League title.

For the first seven years of his life, Paul Hortobagyi never tasted a waffle. Then one day he found himself surrounded by them. The Fountain Valley resident was strolling through the streets of Liege, Belgium, with his parents when he encountered artisanal street vendors selling waffles at nearly every corner. They would grab a piece of paper, sprinkle the buttery-sweet treasure with powdered sugar and hand it out. He recalled no fancy stuffing or topping. The confection, in its purest form, was a great indulgence.

The Costa Mesa City Council met Monday to discuss whether to pursue a lawsuit to prevent toll roads on the 405 Freeway, a proposal that was met with stiff opposition from area cities last year. Though there was no public report from the closed-session meeting, officials said the council weighed its options and will hear more from the city attorney's office in the coming days. Last year, representatives from Costa Mesa and five other cities - Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Westminster and Huntington Beach - opposed a $1.7-billion plan that would have added a toll lane and general-purpose lane in each direction between the 605 Freeway outside Rossmoor and the 73 Freeway in Costa Mesa.
