Authorities have identified the man found hanging in his cell at Costa Mesa Jail as James Wade Coscia, Costa Mesa police Lt. Greg Woods said Monday. Coscia, a 47-year-old Costa Mesa resident, was found hanging in his cell alone at about 5:30 p.m. Friday. He had been booked earlier that day on suspicion of driving under the influence and causing bodily harm after allegedly rear-ending a motorcycle on West 18th Street near Placentia Avenue, police said. Costa Mesa Fire Department paramedics treated Coscia at the jail, and he was taken to Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, where he was pronounced dead at about 6:30 p.m., police said Saturday.

KAREN WIGHT At times, I have felt overwhelmed by the endless possibilities. Does the art hang solo? Would it be enhanced in a group setting? Does it look better flanked by plates or sconces? There have been times that I lacked the decision-making skills -- I've left pieces unhung for months at a time. Sometimes unhung is good. A large picture may look better propped on a mantle than actually fastened to the wall. Smaller art pieces may be better suited to tabletops or bookshelves.

featureWhen the days are slow and the surf is up, I like to head down to Blackie's and watch the show unfold -- some surfers bring the classic surf style and others are just starting out. Generally, I watch the point of land where Newport Boulevard meets the sand. It's easy access, a place where the world can see a slice of the Southern California surf culture -- the beach next to the pier.It's also the one spot long boarders can go to show off their vintage surf skills when "it's on."

Are yours up? Mine aren’t. Soon though. Speaking of Christmas lights, I’ve gotten a couple of requests to reprise “The Complete Guide to Hanging Christmas Lights,” or “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” We may do that at some point, ideally before Dec. 25, but there are important new developments in the tiny little light department that cannot wait. Remember, patience is a virtue — you can’t always get what you want, but sometimes, you get what you need.

A 13-year-old boy remained hospitalized Saturday after being hit by a vehicle Friday evening near West Balboa Boulevard and 32nd Street, Newport Beach Police Sgt. Jeff Freeman said. Sometime between 7 and 8 p.m. Friday, the boy was crossing the street against the light or in an area without a light, Freeman said, and the driver did not see him until it was too late. The boy suffered head injuries and is "hanging in there," Freeman said, although the night of the injury his condition was questionable.

HE IS Opening the door to evenly aligned entryways HANGING 'EM UP Todd Thompson encourages people to head to the local home improvement store for most projects. He said he fully supports the do-it-yourself culture. But when it comes to hanging or rehanging a door, it's a different story. The job is fraught with potential pitfalls. It requires special tools. And it takes a certain amount of finesse and know-how. "For the average homeowner to hang a door, it's not going to happen," Thompson said.

Citing a need to see through other commitments, Joe Stapleton has withdrawn his bid for Newport Beach City Council. A harbor commissioner since July and chairman of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors since September, Stapleton has felt "uneasy" about the prospect of stepping down from those positions if elected to the council, he wrote in an email to supporters, friends and family Thursday night. "It feels that I would be leaving both boards when some very important initiatives for the community - both the residents and the business communities - are being developed," he wrote.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Corona del Mar High sophomore Maddie Musselman managed to score a key goal, get a key steal and frustrate her head coach - all within the final minute of the game. The first two actions were key in helping the Sea Kings earn an 8-6 victory over host Santa Margarita in the Holiday Cup quarterfinals on Friday. Even the third ended up providing a unifying moment for the Sea Kings. Musselman dumped the ball with seven seconds left on the shot clock. CdM Coach Ross Sinclair, who ended up a bit aggravated by this, said after the game that she was looking at the scoreboard and saw a "one," which she thought indicated the shot clock but actually indicated that CdM had one timeout left.

Strong winds from the east blew plenty of dust through the air at Jim Scott Stadium on Friday night. It came from across Placentia Avenue, at the train station parking lot. You could call the Estancia High football team's nonleague game against Sonora the Dust Bowl. At times, the play on the field wasn't much prettier. The Eagles will surely take the result, though. Senior Zack Shafer caused a key fumble late and junior Devon Jackson made a key interception in the final minute, as Estancia hung on for an impressive 19-14 nonleague victory in its final tuneup before the Orange Coast League opener, the Battle for the Bell game on Oct. 11. Costa Mesa's players, on a bye, watched Friday's game from the home bleachers.

COSTA MESA - Oronde Crenshaw says he isn't a one-man gang for Costa Mesa High. During the first two games of the season, he produced six of the football team's eight touchdowns. Those scores prove otherwise. The Mustangs played without Crenshaw on Saturday night because he's dealing with an array of injuries to his right foot. They managed to find the end zone twice, but it wasn't enough. Costa Mesa sure missed its senior star, as it lost to Katella, 21-16, at Jim Scott Stadium.

In a recent column, I explained that past participles are easy. They're all in the dictionary. So if you just know how to find them, you never again have to worry about whether it's "We had sang" or "We had sung. " The answer's right there in bold type next to the word "sing. " (Spoiler: It's "We had sung. ") But in hindsight I realize that I failed to complete that thought. Thanks to an email I got about the participles column, I now know I should have said: "Participles are easy ... except when they're not. " The "not" part hit me after Sam in Costa Mesa wrote to ask about "hanged" and "hung.

NEWPORT BEACH - There was a certain buzz at the pool deck at Newport Harbor High on Tuesday afternoon. Everyone watched to see what senior Luca Cupido would do next for the Sailors. Cupido, a 6-foot-4 transfer from Italy, said he arrived in Newport Beach about a month ago. For that, Newport Harbor can say "grazie" (thank you). He scored a game-high five goals as the Sailors hung on to upset Long Beach Wilson, 9-8, in a nonleague battle of CIF Southern Section Division 1 powers.

LONG BEACH - Big West Conference men's basketball coaches universally released a sigh of relief earlier this month when it was announced that San Diego State would not be joining the conference after all, choosing instead to remain in the Mountain West. But when it comes to the mountaintop of Big West regular-season domination, Long Beach State remains a formidable and perennial front-runner to plant the flag. Coach Dan Monson's first-place 49ers (11-8, 7-1 in conference) added UC Irvine Coach Russell Turner to their list of admirers Saturday after they secured an 81-59 triumph that was still in doubt midway through the second half.

WESTMINSTER - Out of the four games played at the Charlie Wilkins Memorial Classic, Coach Ryan Schachter said Corona del Mar High played its hardest in the last one. The effort was only good enough for the Sea Kings to compete with Ocean View for three quarters on Saturday. In the fourth quarter, Ocean View pulled away and won, 68-57, to claim seventh place in the tournament at Westminster High. A two-point deficit going into the final eight minutes turned into CdM's second double-digit loss during the six-day tournament.
