There may be a more gorgeous, beautiful combination of water, views and city than our little glistening isle, but for during a recent afternoon, Newport Beach is heaven. Newport might contain, as does Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Laguna Beach, as physically active a group of people as exist anywhere. Recently I left 24 Hour Fitness on Lakeshore in Irvine, which was humming with activity on a weekend. Patrons were actively involved in spin sessions on bicycles, playing squash, scaling surrogate mountainsides, lifting weights and using every form of aerobic workout equipment.

Richard Dunn With the Jones Cup, the world is getting smaller. Back in the 1980s, I wrote stories and covered Laguna Beach High's pass-happy quarterback, Danny Lane. Now, he's a member of the elite amateur field in the ultimate community pro-am for men -- the Jones Cup. Lane, the men's club champion at Big Canyon Country Club, will tee it up in Jones Cup III on July 26 with Big Canyon Director of Golf Bob Lovejoy as host Big Canyon attempts to retain the perpetual Jones Cup-winning trophy.

COSTA MESA — When Bernie Rubio moved into the building he intended to convert into a gym, there were two sizable bathrooms — one for men, one for women — that took up quite a bit of the floor space. The average gym owner, in that situation, might have had the bathrooms moved to widen the exercise area, or at least filled them with bodybuilding magazines and vending machines full of Powerade. Rubio, on the other hand, enlisted his wife as co-decorator and filled the bathrooms with paintings, scented candles and even a bowl of dry rose petals for the women.

Their decision was supported by the Police Department and city staff, who also alluded to potential parking and traffic problems, a concentration of 10 alcohol sale permits in the area, and the 7-Eleven's potential to "magnify exiting problems with transiency.

Several years ago, I called Costa Mesa's Triangle Square the Bermuda Triangle Square, as it seemed to be where businesses went to disappear. In the roughly 20 years since it opened, the center has hosted a Niketown, Virgin Records (where they answered the phone, "Virgin Records Newport Beach"), Gap, Barnes & Noble, Johnny Rockets and many more. The only places that have thwarted the hex are the Yardhouse, Sutra Lounge and the movie theaters. The mall was so bad that the average number of stars on Yelp is two. Now, however, there is no more Triangle Square.

COSTA MESA — Triangle Square's latest addition, 24 Hour Fitness Super Sport, is slated to open Saturday morning. Employees will be offering free tours, and guests will be able to try out the club on the first day for free. The 60,000-square-foot gym is the latest tenant to open at the struggling shopping center as part of property owner Greenlaw Partners' attempt to bring business back. "It's the beginning of the revitalization of Triangle Square," said Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer.

COSTA MESA - Developers are hoping the addition of a new gym and new restaurants can help get the ailing Triangle Square back into shape. A 24 Hour Fitness Super Sport is set to open Nov. 19, according to the chain's website. The gym marks the first of a new wave of businesses aimed at dramatically overhauling the once-bustling Costa Mesa retail center. "There's been a change to make it a destination location, a blend of entertainment," said Don Lamm, consultant for Greenlaw Partners, Triangle Square's owners.
