Costa Mesa jail’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent interviewed nearly 100 prisoners and detained almost 40 of them in April, ICE officials said. The numbers indicate Costa Mesa authorities are almost, if not already, back in full force since the jail re-opened full time in March after months of renovations. The city’s ICE agent detained 37 prisoners out of 98 prisoners interviewed, ICE officials said. Three of the detainees were arrested in an April 23 drug bust in which police found more than 23 pounds of marijuana and $26,000 in cash in an apartment.

A mentally disabled man from Costa Mesa who was detained for more than five years by immigration authorities was released Wednesday, less than a week after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit on his behalf. Jose Antonio Franco, whose last name is listed as Franco-Gonzalez in court documents, was released to his family from Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention Wednesday afternoon. Franco, 29, was arrested in 2004 and convicted of throwing a rock that cut a man’s face during a fight between two gangs.

A woman found packed in ice at the Fairmont Newport Beach hotel two months ago died of an overdose of cocaine and ethanol, coroners said Thursday. Monique Felicia Trepp’s body was found packed in dry ice in the hotel room of New Zealander Stephen Royds on March 6 when police were arresting Royds on suspicion of selling drugs. The manner in which the drugs were taken by Trepp was undetermined — resulting in authorities not being able to determine if the death was a suicide or accidental, coroners said.

Coral Wilson Alleluia! Christ is risen! And that doesn't just mean he has thawed out, the Rev. Peter Haynes told the congregation of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Corona del Mar on Easter morning. Haynes' challenge every Sunday is to get people's attention. "Especially on Easter, I try to give them the whole shot at once," he said. Incorporating the controversial subject of cryogenics into his sermon, Haynes warned his congregation not to fall into the "Christ on ice" trap.

What an amazing -- and gratifying -- sight to see. All of those white uniforms swarming the bench, jumping on Steve Rucchin and Jean-Sebastien Giguere and celebrating the improbable -- a Mighty Ducks sweep of defending Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings. To use an overused cliche, "What a long, strange road it has been." But I have to say that every step seems worth it with that win on Wednesday night. My biggest congratulations have to go to Rucchin.

When Marisa Miranda entered Newport Harbor High School, she had the desire to ace her classes, win scholarships and get accepted to college. She didn't have much beyond that. But it turned out to be enough. Miranda, the only child of a single mother who emigrated from Mexico, grew up without any family members who had gone to college in the United States. She started the ninth grade knowing almost nothing about Advanced Placement tests, SATs or college applications. All that changed when she enrolled in Advancement Via Individual Determination — better known as AVID — a program that helps struggling students acquire the technical skills for college and life.

FOR THE RECORD In a story in Monday's paper, "Costa Mesa Council Candidates sound off on issues," an answer submitted by Bruce Garlich was inadvertently replaced with another candidate's response. Here is the Daily Pilot's question and Garlich's original response. Question: Why should voters choose you? Answer: Why choose me? Trust! Trust to govern in the interests of all Costa Mesans. I serve no outside interests and seek no higher office. Trust to make our city safe as exhibited by the confidence and support of Costa Mesa's police and fire professionals.

In the CIF Southern Section postseason, no measure of respect is awarded free. It's earned, one possession, one game, one victory at a time. Perhaps no team in the 3AA Division boys' basketball playoffs knows this better than Palm Desert High, a team that entered Friday's second-round game at Corona del Mar seeking respect as much as a win. The No. 13-seeded Aztecs, who went 12-0 to win the Desert Valley League, have made the playoffs six...

In a classic episode of "The Office," Steve Carell's Michael Scott told his underling, played by John Krasinski, "It's never too late for ice cream, Jim. " And if the scene at Creamistry in Irvine on Thursday was any indication, it's never too early either. A pair of friends arrived scouring for dessert at 11 a.m. no less. Ignoring the advice of mothers everywhere, they chortled, lunch could wait. But the rendezvous wasn't meant to be, as evidenced by "Awws" and a particularly loud "Oh, no!"

"Ice Age: Continental Drift" is the fourth installment of this franchise, and it's starting to wear thin. The formula is predictable and consists of interchangeable parts that have all been assembled before. If you saw any of the other "Ice Age" movies, you have already seen this one. The characters look like stuffed animal parodies of their real life counterparts. Woolly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, rodents and assorted sea creatures are all represented in key roles. They look cute and cuddly but talk and act like manic versions of stand-up comedians.

"The Ice Dragon" is a family movie. That doesn't mean the same thing to Swedish director Martin Högdahl as it might to an American audience. For one thing, no American family movie would have an 11-year-old protagonist so often by name refer to his dad's heavy metal band, The "M******s. " Högdahl says he's aiming at an "audience of kids aged 8 to 12. Sweden hasn't had many good films in that age group. " " The Ice Dragon " is a family movie not because it's packed with kid-safe genre conventions; it isn't.

When Danish duo Christian Toxboe and Laura Nielsen brought their gelato recipe to the U.S., they wanted to make it different. They wanted to make it nice. Using fresh, organic ingredients, they launched N'ice Cream: Nielsen's Homemade Gelato and Sorbet, a Venice Beach-based dessert and espresso shop. Each morning, 16 flavors are whipped up in-store using a formula that is lower in fat and sugar than traditional ice cream. "We opened on the notion that it is possible to bring a group of kids somewhere that moms don't have to be worried about artificial flavors and sweeteners," Toxboe said.

IRVINE — With five teams tied for third place in the Big West Conference entering Thursday night's men's basketball action, balance might be a descriptive word associated with the nine-team league. But off-balance may be a more fitting assessment of the play of UC Irvine, which continued its schizophrenic tendencies in a 66-62 conference setback to visiting Cal State Northridge in front of a library-like 1,115 at the Bren Events Center.
