A Newport Beach recovery home could be forced to shut its doors after an independent official rejected its request for permission to operate in the city at an administrative hearing last week. Costa Mesa-based Ohio House - which opened a sober living home on 36th Street in Newport in May - can still appeal the decision to the City Council. The house's founder, Brandon Stump, said this week that he has not yet decided whether he will. "The bottom line is this: The Ohio House is a wonderful program that's saving a lot of lives, and there's nothing that I can do or say that's going to change the mind of Newport Beach or the neighbors," he said.

Around the start of Thursday's nonleague match, Palos Verdes High boys' tennis coach Danny Moscovici had a question for Corona del Mar Coach Jamie Gresh. Moscovici inquired about the whereabouts of CdM junior Chaz Downing, an integral part of the teams that reached the CIF Southern Section Division 1 title match each of the last two years.

My friendship with John Canalis, editor of the Daily Pilot, is both strange and wonderful. He's wonderful and I'm just strange! But all kidding aside, since we met more than four years ago, not only have we put our heads together creating the ground-breaking political forum series Feet to the Fire, but we also did something unprecedented. We brought together media outlets in Orange County. Moving past the pettiness of competition, the Daily Pilot, Orange County Register and the Voice of OC have continued to come together for a common goal with these forums.

As players warmed up in the Corona del Mar High gym, Magnolia Coach Matt Tweed talked to a couple of fans in the stands that made the road trip to support his boys' basketball team. The topic was running, not the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA basketball playoffs. He told the fans about CdM's well-known distance coach, Bill Sumner. The school's basketball team ended up running circles around Magnolia on the court. Fourth-seeded CdM ran away from the Sentinels in the second half en route to a 58-27 win on Wednesday.

Members of the Costa Mesa High boys' basketball team tied a program record this year with 19 wins. They also won the Battle of the Bell series against cross-town rival Estancia for the third straight year. What they weren't able to do prior to Wednesday night's CIF Southern Section Division 4AA first-round playoff game, though, was grow several inches each. Visiting Harvard-Westlake had a size advantage, and the No. 8-seeded Wolverines exploited it on their way to a 64-48 victory that ended Costa Mesa's season.
