HUNTINGTON BEACH — Welcome to the Newport Harbor High boys' tennis season, where one of the top doubles players in Southern California can team with a football player. It happened Thursday at Marina High. Newport junior Reese Stalder, ranked No. 4 in Southern California in boys' 18 doubles and No. 7 in singles, teamed up with tennis novice Garrett Hall, a senior running back and safety in football. Stalder and Hall did well, sweeping for the Sailors at No. 3 doubles. Hall's mom, Cheryl, told her son that he should get something signed by Stalder that will be valuable when he's famous one day. "I'll probably get my shoe signed by the end of the season," Garrett Hall said.

When the expensive new civic center opened in Newport Beach last year, some claimed it as a symbol of an irresponsible government out of touch with the people it represented. Councilman Keith Curry served as mayor at the time. He has embraced the project, which ultimately cost the city nearly $140 million, as an example of quality work that will meet the needs of the community for decades to come. He noted that the project is more than just a City Hall; it comprises a library, park, emergency center, community room and parking structure.

There was a buzz at Newport Harbor High on Tuesday. The bees swarming the visiting dugout in the top of the fifth inning didn't create all of it. All the rage was the triple play Huntington Beach turned in the bottom of the fourth, helping the Oilers dodge yet another offensive threat. In the next inning, bees forced all the Oilers to drop to the ground in the dugout, and the batter on deck and the one in the batter's box. The bees appeared to have posed more of a hindrance to the Oilers than the Sailors did. No one on the Oilers' side got stung, just the Sailors when it came to their inability to produce with runners in scoring position.

Baby goats haven't exactly made a name for themselves as household pets, but for a group of local students, the fluffy little kids are better than any of their friends' dogs or cats. Twelve students from Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach have been raising dairy goats in Santa Ana Heights, an annexed area of Newport that allows residents to house farm animals as part of a 4H project. 4H is a national youth development organization that encourages students to complete a variety of projects, achieve goals with confidence and obtain skills that will help them become active citizens, said project leader and parent Gibran Stout.

In a win for her opponent, Orange County Board of Supervisors candidate Michelle Steel will have to change her official occupation from "taxpayer advocate/businesswoman" to "Board of Equalization member" on the ballot, a judge has ruled. Assemblyman Allan Mansoor (R-Costa Mesa), who is running against Steel for the Board of Supervisors' 2nd District seat, had alleged in a lawsuit that the Surfside resident's chosen ballot designation was misleading. Steel's role on the state Board of Equalization, which is tasked with considering tax appeals, is "quasi-judicial," the suit alleged, and that is her main job. According to a court order dated March 25, Orange County Superior Court Judge Franz E. Miller agreed.
