The Anaheim Ducks may start flocking to the Orange County Great Park in Irvine. The NHL team, and its representatives H&S Ventures LLC, are in negotiations with the park to create a community skating rink. The item was presented during Thursday's Great Park board meeting. Park Chief Executive Mike Ellzey has been authorized to move forward on the agreement. "An ice facility developed in partnership with the Anaheim Ducks would make a tremendous addition to our sports park," Ellzey said in a prepared statement.

What we have in the sheriff’s office is a “Carona” clone vetted by the county GOP. What’s next? Only vetted Republicans are fit to serve as head of the Sheriff’s Department? Only friends of Carona need apply? The whole operation stinks.   Don’t put recreation at bottom of city’s list What is wrong with the city fathers? Now they are doing away with tennis courts. All recreation is at the very bottom of our well being list.

Young Chang Konstantin Rassadin took liberties with his production of "Cinderella." The character of the cinder-girl turned princess, for example, carries her two slippers, one of which she drops while rushing home from the ball. It's practical. Tatiana Prokofieva, who dances the title role, can't very well stumble offstage wearing only one ice skate. So Rassadin, founder and artistic director of the St. Petersburg State Ice Ballet, modified the fairy tale a little.

Steve Virgen On the ice rink, Sean Calvillo finds solace. He becomes one with himself and he escapes from the daily stress that can come from being a civil engineering major at UC Irvine. Calvillo, a 20-year-old in his second year at UCI, has also found success as a figure skater competing in events sanctioned by the United States Figure Skating Association. "The sport is a form of release," Calvillo said. "I try to keep other issues out of the rink and I just go there and focus on my skating.

Jennifer Kho COSTA MESA -- Parents are fighting to keep open the Ice Chalet Skating Rink, which announced it will close in 16 days after 28 years as a community treasure and a training ground for a number of Olympic ice skaters. "The rink is really an asset to the city and, if it closes, it will be a real loss," said Claudia Gardner of Costa Mesa. "This place doesn't look very nice, and they say if they had more money they could modernize it and attract more skaters and hockey players.

It seems to me that the Segerstroms just want to sell that land. Costa Mesa does not need another department store. We need some places for recreation. A reader complained that Kona Lanes is run down. I am sure that if the owners had some security about the future of that site and assurances that the bowling alley can remain, they would invest some money into refurbishing the facility and make Kona Lanes what it once was. Kona Lanes needs to be saved.

I have lived in Costa Mesa for the majority of my life and have been a Mesa Verde resident for a long time, and the idea of bringing in a Kohl's department store is absolutely ridiculous. Let's get this right, Planning Commission and City Council, and let's put in some good family entertainment with some good restaurants and upgrade the bowling alley and put something in that the whole community can enjoy as opposed to another retail outlet. Come on people, let's get it right GREG SPICER Costa Mesa I have lived in Mesa Verde for the last 19 years and I think it is such a terrible idea.

Jennifer Kho COSTA MESA -- Dozens of Ice Chalet skaters and parents -- many wearing ice skating costumes and skates with covered blades -- tried to convince the City Council on Monday night to help them save the skating rink, which is scheduled to close this month. "We're here in support of a rundown . . . building that means a lot to us," said Jan Kowski, a Fountain Valley resident who brought a stack of books that mention Ice Chalet, its coaches or skaters.

UC Irvine senior Lalita Patipaksiri has quite a full plate. She works two jobs, is taking 24 units and is the only senior on a UCI team fresh off a fifth-place finish in the Juli Inkster Invitational in San Jose, where Patipaksiri had her best tournament of the spring season. She finished third overall, at even par, two shots behind champion Joanne Lee of Cal. Patipaksiri and teammates were blasting balls into a net inside Crawford Hall on Sunday in preparation for the Anteater Invitational Monday and Tuesday at Dove Canyon Country Club.

This is in response to the Kona Lanes article ("Planners give Kona Lanes hope," Saturday). I feel that Kona Lanes should be kept in our city. We need Kona Lanes for numerous reasons. It could use a face lift, but it is one of the only recreation facilities left that provides a physical activity for all ages. There has been a resurgence of bowling as a popular pastime for families and individuals. The nearest bowling allies to our area are Fountain Valley and Santa Ana. Our city should reap the benefits from this activity.

Jennifer Kho MESA VERDE -- It could take a group of former Ice Chalet customers longer than anticipated to open a new ice skating rink in Costa Mesa. Representatives for Mesa Verde Partners -- the Segerstrom-family company that owns the Mesa Verde Center in which the Ice Chalet building is located -- said they have yet to begin negotiations with the group of former Ice Chalet customers. Gene Moriarty, managing partner of Mesa Verde Partners and general manager of Mesa Verde Center, said he hasn't even received a proposal from the group.
