It has been an interesting season for the Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team, to say the least. Upsetting Corona del Mar, 3-2, in the Battle of the Bay game in December was certainly a highlight. It was Newport's first win in the rivalry series in four years. But days before that win, junior forward Gema Sanchez broke her fibula. And days after that win freshman sensation Sianna Siemonsma, up to that point the team's leading scorer, fractured her ankle. The loss of firepower before the Sunset League began has hurt the Sailors, who sit at 0-3-3 in league with four games remaining.

The state Assembly on Monday overwhelmingly approved a measure that aims to preserve beach fire rings. The gathering spots have been at the center of protracted battles in Southern California's beach towns, where regional air-quality officials have stepped up their regulation of the bonfires because of concerns over their effect on health and the environment. The issue was first raised by Corona del Mar residents living near the pits. Huntington Beach residents quickly took an opposite stance, leading the fight to maintain the rings.

Newport Beach police have arrested two men who could be tied to more than 20 residential burglaries in the city and neighboring Huntington Beach, authorities said Tuesday. The arrests, a Newport Beach Police Department news release said, came after a Dover Shores resident reported seeing the driver of a white Jeep Rubicon on Saturday stop outside her home, write something on a piece of paper and drive away.
