On Saturday, the Irvine Barclay Theatre will be the site of classical music - and caffeine. Organic coffee company Urth Caffe is coming to Laguna Beach in the summer. But married co-owners Shallom and Jilla Berkman plan to introduce their product at the performing arts center this weekend. The store has a loyal following at its locations in Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Pasadena and elsewhere. Now it's Orange County's turn to get a taste of its custom coffee and tea: Each patron of the Barclay performance will be given a packet to take home.

SANTA BARBARA - Two of the best junior girls' water polo players in CIF were just a couple of feet apart late Saturday afternoon at Santa Barbara High, and it was fun to watch. Newport Harbor goalie Carlee Kapana had an answer to back-to-back shots from point-blank range from Laguna Beach junior Makenzie Fischer. Kapana made two impressive stops, blocking each one late in the third quarter. The problem was, the Breakers already were up by four goals. And when Fischer scored on a perfectly executed lob from the left side a quarter later, all Newport Harbor Coach Bill Barnett could do was pull half of his regulars from the game.

LAGUNA BEACH - In stoppage time, Coach Robert Castellano wanted to know how much time remained in the Estancia High boys' soccer match. He asked the referee, who in turn raised one finger, signaling one minute. Sixty seconds proved to be more than enough time for the Eagles to break a scoreless tie on Friday night. In such a short period, they put together two scoring chances. The second shot on goal, the one furthest out, found the back of the net at Laguna Beach. Abarham Cortez blasted a shot from outside the box, putting it where the goalkeeper stood no chance of stopping the ball.

You know the feeling: You're watching a movie you loved 20 years ago and wonder, all of a sudden, what happened to the actor who played that brilliant bit part. Someone mentions "alt-country" in a conversation about music, and you realize you don't know the difference between alt-country and regular country. You find yourself staring at that weird contraption each time you visit the theater, but you can't say for the life of you what it actually does. In all three cases, we can help.

A shocking development took place Saturday afternoon at Newport Harbor High. For the first time in three years, the Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar girls' water polo teams did not meet each other in a high school tournament. The teams that have met in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 title match the last two years did not face off in this weekend's Holiday Cup. Yet the Sailors and Sea Kings each found positives to the first tournament of their season, after winning three out of four games.

There are some changes when it comes to this weekend's Holiday Cup girls' water polo tournament. The tournament is being played after New Year's Day, for one. And Corona del Mar High is not hosting, as new locker rooms are being installed at the Sea Kings' pool. Newport Harbor and Santa Margarita are the hosts for the two-day tournament, which begins Friday morning. What has not changed, however, is that the 16-team tournament is stacked and provides a good early-season measuring stick for the top programs in the CIF Southern Section.

Costa Mesa High boys' water polo juniors James Rydjeski, Quinn Smith and Raymond Andrade, as well as Sage High senior Arya Nakhjavani, have all earned first-team All-Orange Coast League honors for the recently completed season. Rydjeski, a goalie, set the Costa Mesa single-season record with 325 saves. He is a repeat first-team selection after helping the Mustangs (19-8, 4-1) finish second in league and advance to the CIF Southern Section Division 2 playoffs, where they fell to Chaparral, 16-4, in a wild-card match.

Newport Beach Mayor Keith Curry confirmed Wednesday that he plans to run for state Assembly in 2014. "It was a spontaneous decision," he said. "My wife and I were having dinner [last weekend] and she said, 'You ought to do it. The timing is good.'" Curry, a Republican, wants to represent the 74th District, a recently redrawn swath that encompasses all or parts of Newport, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Irvine and Laguna Beach. Assemblyman Allan Mansoor (R-Costa Mesa) currently occupies the seat but is running for the Orange County Board of Supervisors.

COSTA MESA •Heading into the crucial, final two weeks of the Orange Coast League season, Costa Mesa High Coach Wally Grant saw something in his defense that had been building since injuries took their toll on the Mustangs earlier in the season. With the return of several key starters to the fold, the Costa Mesa defense played a key role in recent games against Calvary Chapel and Laguna Beach. Those two game performances, both important victories, helped the Mustangs close out a 5-0 league season that ended with a league championship.
