LAGUNA HILLS — Corona del Mar High cross country coach Bill Sumner can't tell a certain story about Ashlee Powers without laughing. It's a giddy laugh for sure. Last month during the CdM boys' and girls' training at Mammoth, Powers was struggling as she competed in a push-up contest. She was behind the winner by 15 push-ups, Sumner said. The CdM junior appeared spent and ready to fall on her belly. But slowly, one push-up after the next she caught up to the person in first place and after one more push-up to win, she stopped.

It's one of the tidiest stretches of road in Newport Beach. On one end, Mercedes-Benz hoods gleam in the Fletcher Jones Motorcars lot. On the other, a gated condo development looms from behind tall palms. Jamboree Road, with its wide lanes, absence of retail development and speeding cars, is one of the last places you'd expect to see someone hanging out on the corner. Especially if that man is homeless. For the past month or so, Nate Meador, 50, has been leaning against lampposts between MacArthur Boulevard and Coast Highway.
