DON CANTRELL Two Nebraska lads first came to the harbor area in the mid-1930s and, in good time, began to establish impressive marks in prep and junior college athletics. Bill and Roger Neth both played on the 1942 Sunset League football championship team and shined in other sports as well. Although Newport lost the small schools CIF championship playoff to Bonita and halfback Glenn Davis, 39-6, the Neths and Sailor mates made admirable efforts to overcome the odds.

KAREN WIGHT If everyone gets 15 minutes of fame, then the four members of Newport Harbor High School's culinary arts team had its allotment doled out back to back. The students created an entire hour of ecstasy and agony as they participated in the 2004 California High School Culinary Arts Competition held this weekend, receiving first place for their efforts. Harbor's fearsome foursome sauteed, julienned and whipped their quenelles and micro magenta spinach for the competition's finicky judges.

Marisa O'Neil Sometimes, a little face-lift can make all the difference. Swimmers at Newport Harbor High School know that firsthand now that they're taking dips in the school's newly refurbished 50-meter pool. As a school that has produced Olympic water polo players and won multiple CIF titles in the sport, having a good pool is a must, Assistant Principal Robert Cunard said. "We have such a strong tradition of water polo here," Cunard said. "Without a good pool, it would be like a school in Texas without a good football field."

But neither compares to one of its lesser known cousins, the Gray Lunde Ironman Race, an event put on each August by the Newport Beach Junior Lifeguard Program....

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH--A member of one of the city's founding families has shaken up the upcoming council race by announcing his candidacy. Allan Beek will oppose former Public Works Director Don Webb for the District 3 council seat that will be vacated by Norma Glover due to term limits.

Lolita Harper NEWPORT BEACH -- The muggy marine layer and light drizzle Saturday afternoon may have succeeded in blocking the sun's rays but it could not dampen the spirits of those involved in the Relay for Life at Newport Harbor High School. Dozens of people gathered at a makeshift tent city, erected just outside the high school stadium, for the final leg of the 24-hour vigil in the fight against cancer. Although they were fatigued, team members enthusiastically executed their shifts in the all-night relay, or cheered on fellow teammates during their own downtime.

Is anyone else as confused as I am about what is going on at Newport Harbor High School ("Argument drowns out cheers," Dec. 29)? Cheerleading tryouts took place Nov. 29, but just who is on the squads is still in question. So far, this is what I've been able to surmise from minimal facts and maximum rumors. The first inkling of a problem emerged when practices had been canceled with the excuse that there had been some confusion with the tryout process.
