After being selected No. 262 by the Raiders as the absolute dead-last pick in the 2003 NFL draft, former Gustavus Adolphus College (Minn.) receiver Ryan Hoag will officially be honored as Mr. Irrelevant XXVIII, beginning today at the Arrival Party at the Newport Dunes. The Arrival Party, including the customary showering of gifts and cheerleader escort, kicks off many of the Irrelevant Week traditions. Mickey Mouse is also scheduled to join the festivities today, which begin at 5:30 p.m. Hoag will receive the Lowsman Trophy at a banquet Thursday that will also feature Heisman Trophy winner Carson Palmer, picked No. 1 overall by the Bengals out of USC.

Newport Beach city officials acknowledged Wednesday that they were unaware of the plumes of vapor and exhaust a Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian power plant would emit when it was first approved in 2002. “If I were a mechanical engineer, I would have known; but we’re not engineers — we’re planners,” Newport Beach Senior Planner James Campbell told the City Council Wednesday. Campbell spoke during a special hearing to discuss whether Hoag has been a good neighbor to condominium residents, who say the power plant is an eyesore that emits opaque plumes of steam and exhaust that block their views of the ocean.

Neighbors of Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian said Thursday they were not satisfied with plans to curb plumes of steam and exhaust from a hospital power plant by one-third. “Nobody was listening, and they didn’t care,” said Tarek Zeitoune, who has lived at the Villa Balboa condominium complex next to the hospital since 2000. “I really feel like we have no value in this city.” The plumes are visible from Zeitoune’s balcony, he said. The Newport Beach City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to approve Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian’s proposal to shift 225,000 square feet of building space from its lower to upper campus to build a 300,000-square-foot tower.

Newport residents who want Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian to clean up plumes of steam and vapor from a hospital power plant will face off with hospital officials tonight at a special city council meeting. In a written statement to the city council, Hoag officials claim plumes from a hospital cogeneration plant are only visible in the mornings for a few days a year, typically during the winter — a claim residents dispute. “It’s just a patently false statement, it’s misleading and not worthy of Hoag to say things like that,” said Erik Thurnher, co-chairman of the community groups Friends of Sunset View Park and the Villa Balboa-Hoag Liaison Committee.

It was the annual 552 Club Movie Screening. More than 1,000 locals went to the movies, raising a record $140,000 for Hoag -- specifically earmarked for the Hoag Women's Pavilion. The new facility is scheduled to open in 2005 adjacent to Hoag Hospital. "Once again, the community has helped make this event a huge success," event co-chair Jim Edwards said.
