Witnesses described the car and pointed officers in its direction. Officers found Emily, 23, and Brandon, 21, by the car near Port Abbey and followed them, according to police spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella.

I'm not big on new year's resolutions but one thing I'm pretty much always resolving to do is manage my time better. Superior time management skills are considered essential in our fast-paced modern lives but few of us seem to be naturally gifted in this department. We search for wisdom from organizational gurus and churn with envy over those few uber-successful individuals who claim to get so much done because they need only four hours of sleep each night. If I got just four hours sleep a night I'd really have to reorganize my time so I'd be able to take a five-hour nap every day. These days we all seem to be in a competition to pack our schedules as tightly as possible.

Two men, at least one armed with a gun, carjacked a Costa Mesa resident Friday afternoon in the alley behind his apartment, Lt. Bob Ciszek said Saturday. The incident occurred about 4:20 p.m. in the 1000 block of Mission Drive. Ciszek said the victim, a 41-year-old man, had pulled into the alley and was smoking a cigarette with his car still running when a man opened the driver’s side door and forced him out. The suspect, described as a man in his 20s with a white T-shirt and jeans, threw the victim against a garage door, drew a handgun and ordered him not to move.

NEWPORT BEACH — A piece of local history sits in the window at Balboa Island's newest boutique, so small and so colorless that it almost disappears amid the bright array of summer clothes. The undated black-and-white picture shows the old Balboa Island firehouse and police station, probably sometime in the 1930s, with an antiquated fire truck and police car surrounded by eight uniformed officers. The window display is a source of pride for the local firefighters, who sometimes wave and honk when they drive by the store.

A Costa Mesa man has sued the Newport Beach Police Department, alleging that a police dog mauled him after officers released the animal near a garage where the claimant was sleeping. Usyel Ocampo Roman, 34, seeks yet-to-be-determined damages and payment to cover medical bills and other expenses related to the incident. A lawyer for Ocampo Roman filed the complaint in Orange County Superior Court on Oct. 10. Ocampo Roman was asleep in his friend's garage on Coolidge Avenue in Costa Mesa when Newport Beach police were assisting in a search for suspects nearby about 3 a.m. March 17, according to the lawsuit.

Two local cats are missing in what appears to be a case of meow-staken identity, residents of Newport Island and the surrounding neighborhood said Friday. Gail O'Hea said she started sleuthing when Toulouse, a long-haired black and white cat, didn't come home Monday night from his usual prowlings near her home on Marcus Avenue. Not long after, neighbor Lisa Lily, whose gray and white kitty Jerry has been missing for a few months, got a call saying that Jerry had been found. "One little girl - I only have one flier still on my garage door - so she got my number and she called and said, 'Lisa, I found your cat, call me back,'" Lily said.

Three proposed laws that would restrict parking in Costa Mesa neighborhoods have raised the ire of several residents who think the rules represent a government intrusion into their private-property rights. If the laws pass the City Council tonight, driveway sizes will be limited, the city will strictly regulate how residents can park RVs, boats, equipment haulers and other vehicles on their driveways, and large homes will be required to have extra garage parking spaces. Proponents of the added regulations say they were designed to improve neighborhood aesthetics, free up street parking and cut down on drug and alcohol recovery homes in the city, but some critics feel they go too far. After bringing similar measures to the council in October only to have them sent back, the Planning Commission unanimously agreed upon the present versions of the ordinances.

When I reach the current stage of the Christmas holidays — 15 more shopping days ’til Christmas — I tend to get morose. So much to do, so little time to do it. And not a few recriminations for allowing all this, as usual, to reach a crisis state. At such an impasse, I compensate by making lists, a fresh one every day, that offer a sense of progress without really accomplishing anything. Today‘s list, for example:  Get down the three boxes marked “Xmas” in the garage.

Melissa Matsuoka keeps mementos of her myriad athletic accomplishments in her bedroom. But perhaps the most prized piece of memorabilia representing the Corona del Mar High senior’s glorious tennis career sits hidden from view, tucked away, once again, in a family closet. That item is an old, now-antique tennis racquet that Matsuoka fished from the back of the closet nine years ago and began hitting a ball against the garage door. “It was a little mangled,” Matsuoka said of the outdated implement that triggered a passion that propelled Matsuoka to perennial heights in the sport, and, next fall, across the country to attend Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. “After a couple times of playing against the garage door, my parents took me to Sports Chalet and bought me a Wilson racquet.
