The California Republican Assembly has endorsed Michelle Steel for Orange County supervisor. Steel, a Surfside resident and vice chairwoman of the California Board of Equalization, hopes to replace John Moorlach on the Board of Supervisors. He is termed out and running for the 45th Congressional District seat. "Michelle is a great conservative leader, she has a proven record standing up for taxpayers, and we need more leaders like her in local government. That's why she earned our support," the California Republican Assembly's president, John Briscoe, said in a news release.

Michelle Steel raised her right hand Monday afternoon and over Top 40 radio music vowed to uphold the laws of the United States. She also pledged that the information in the stack of documents she had just pushed over the counter of the Orange County registrar of voters office was all true. She was excited, she said, and a little nervous: In filing her final round of paperwork ahead of a March 7 deadline, her campaign had officially begun. Steel is running to replace John Moorlach on the Orange County Board of Supervisors.

When Orange County Register columnist Barbara Venezia and I met four years ago at the Balboa Yacht Club, we began an unlikely friendship. I say unlikely because we worked for competing papers. And she, to put it mildly, was as outgoing as her red hair and forward fashion sense would suggest. I was more reserved behind my glasses and button downs. Nevertheless, we shared a passion for newspapering, politics and the twin cities of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. One of the most important outgrowths of that friendship was the Feet to the Fire Forum, a series of candidate debates we started that were often compelling, occasionally boring and at times a little bizarre (but always interesting and well-attended)

Police found a stash of counterfeit $100 bills in a Costa Mesa hotel room last month after a couple tried to pass fake currency at a Huntington Beach store, according to a federal indictment. Marcus Redick and Lashana Gorrell allegedly bought hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise with fake bills, but cashiers noticed something strange about the $100 notes used to make the purchases, according to an affidavit filed by a U.S. Secret Service agent on Jan. 9.

"I Love Newport Beach" was intended as an experiment. The Facebook page so named, which was unveiled in September 2011, was meant to be Newport Beach resident Tony Shaw's social media training. "I wanted to practice on something that nobody would see so I wouldn't embarrass myself in front of people I know," remarked the owner of Seaside Realty and Financial Services, who ultimately wanted to increase his business' online presence. But his plan for a dry run went awry with the site's unexpected popularity.

In an age when teenagers post trivial videos online, Nic Sargeant has a highlight that would make your jaw drop if you saw it. He hasn't even watched it. He just lived it. More than a week has passed since Sargeant, from just inside midcourt, made a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer for the Newport Harbor High boys' basketball team. He cannot get his hands on the footage until next week, when the Sailors play Marina again. Coach Bob Torribio doesn't allow his team to dwell on the past, only if the Sailors need to break down film on the same opponent again.
