A 41-year-old Newport Beach man was in custody Wednesday after being arrested in Ladera Ranch, where authorities said he was waiting to meet a girl he had been molesting for at least a month. Samuel Brent Robertson was booked on suspicion of molesting a girl under age 13 and kidnapping, said Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino. Police said Robertson met the girl on a social networking website before October and pretended to be 24 years old. Amormino declined to identify the site, saying it would make the victim easy to identify.

Is seems there can be a great deal of leeway when one talks about what constitutes a "deal" in today's real estate market, but there are only a few communities in Southern California where it is considered a deal when you are talking about the $700,000 and less range. In the upscale community in Orange County known as Ladera Ranch, less than $700,000 is a deal — especially when you consider many homes in the area were selling for $1 million and more only a few years ago. But deal-seekers may be pinpointing Ladera Ranch specifically, as sales in the less than $700,000 category have been on the rise, say real estate agents who specialize in the 12-year-old community bordered by the cities of San Juan Capistrano and Mission Viejo.

A 42-year-old Newport Beach man was sentenced to five years in prison this week for molesting a child he met on a social networking site in 2010. Samuel Brent Robertson pleaded guilty Thursday to 24 counts of lewd or lascivious conduct with a minor, luring and meeting a child to commit lewd conduct and disobeying a court order. In 2010, Robertson met a girl younger than 13, and he pretended to be 24 years old. In their first meeting that October, he picked the girl up from her Ladera Ranch middle school and took her to a hiking trail in Newport Beach, where they had sex. Because of the girl's age, she cannot consent to either traveling or having sex. In another instance, Robertson picked the girl up from her home and took her to his house in Newport Beach, where he molested her again.

This past week we said goodbye to two top educators and welcomed a new one. Sadly, in Ken Yglesias’ case, his resignation as the Coast Community College District chancellor came as he was under the cloud of a cryptic investigation. Yglesias had been under fire for months as district officials investigated unspecified allegations against him, but he agreed to a settlement that allowed him to retire June 30 and receive his usual salary of $20,250 a month without acting as chancellor.

When I stop by The Harp Inn in Costa Mesa, it's usually to unwind or to have a good time. But I was there for a different reason Sunday when the St. Baldrick's Foundation held its special head-shaving event to raise money for children's cancer research. I still had a great time, one that ended up being deeply profound and meaningful. I never intended to become a part of the story. I did feel connected to the event because my father, Julian, died of leukemia when he was 50, and I also know people close to my heart who are dealing with other forms of cancer.

It may be called Surf City, but for music lovers, Huntington Beach is the home of the Golden Bear. Since the nightclub’s demise in the late 1980s, some residents have been waiting, or actively plotting, its return. And now Ladera Ranch resident Joe Daichendt, co-owner of Pierside Pavilion and his father, Gary, is trying to bring a Golden Bear concert venue to the city in summer 2011. The Golden Bear was a music venue where the likes of John Denver, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Steve Martin played to intimate crowds.
