EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is the sixth in a series of the top stories of each year since 2000. Look for the 2006 story of the year Sunday. The attorney for former Newport Beach resident Greg Haidl says his client hopes to move on with his life after serving most of a six-year prison sentence for his role in a sordid sexual assault seven years ago. The victim was a 16-year-old girl who was gang-raped as she was passed out on a pool table in the garage of his father’s Corona del Mar home.

When Ned Lyon arrived for the fall semester at Oregon, there was something gnawing at him. Call it regret. But it was something urging him to try the game he left behind at Newport Harbor High. He hated how his final football season with the Sailors ended. They won their last game, but they missed the playoffs after a bizarre process to determine postseason berths among five teams in the Sunset League. White-out bottles were picked out of a wooden bucket and Newport Harbor missed the playoffs.

After more than four decades with the Newport Beach Fire Department, Capt. Jerry Strom said that he feels it’s time to close the curtain on his accomplished career. “In this job you go from a standstill to 110% in a second...so the stand still part is going to be great,” he said. “It’s time to get out and get some fresh air.” There will be plenty of fresh air where Strom, 66, and his wife, Cindy, are headed. The couple married for 18 years is planning to head up to Mammoth after Strom retires Friday.

Tiger Woods reads my column. I know this because he was trying to take the easy way out of his troubles, and, last Tuesday, I slammed him for it. On Friday, he corrected two of the mistakes I mentioned. The first correction was to shift from calling his actions “transgressions” to calling them what they really are. On Friday, he used the word “infidelity.” Good enough. The second correction was to start saying “I’m sorry” instead of “I apologize,” or any other substitute.

Reed Williams taps and tugs at the ball, stopping and starting, dancing and darting, an inspired blend of technical skill, instinct and, many would suggest, nothing short of an inexplicable gift. The game he began playing as a small child is now, in fact, child’s play for the Corona del Mar High senior forward, who had an unfathomable 13 goals through five games. His three hat tricks and two near-misses, one in which he scored twice and tantalized the crowd with several other ill-fated chances, helped the Sea Kings open 5-0. And though he has likely scored hundreds of goals in nearly a decade of year-round devotion to soccer, the UCLA-bound net tickler is virtually unmoved by his early dominance.

One day toward the end of last school year at Estancia High, football coach Mike Bargas noticed a familiar face. Bargas tried to put a name to the face of the junior transferring to the school. The Eagles’ third-year coach admits he’s terrible with names. The last time Bargas remembered seeing the kid was when he was an assistant coach at Newport Harbor in 2004. Back then, the kid was a 5-foot, 115-pound ballboy for the Sailors. Sean Davis was all grown up by now, nine inches taller and 85 pounds heavier.

NEWPORT BEACH — High school football players selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl are considered among the best in the nation. They’re also picked because they embody traits that an Army soldier possesses. It can easily be said Cecil Whiteside meets those criteria. The Newport Harbor High School senior has been through his own share of battles away from the field. They serve as reminders of where he came from, what made him strong and what drove him to a better life.
