A panel of Los Angeles City Council members has shown considerable interest in "fast-tracking" a study on building a downtown football stadium next to Staples Center and L.A. Live. The proposed $1-billion stadium, — complete with retractable roof to protect fans from Southern California's notorious autumnal nor'easters — would seat 64,000. I don't mean to splash cold water on the panel's self-congratulatory high-fives and backslaps, but, for us Newport-Mesans, this stadium brouhaha is so yesterday.

Despite our proclamations in an editorial in Thursday's Pilot ("Fourth of July won't be without its fanfare"), there will not be a fireworks display at Orange Coast College's LeBard Stadium on Independence Day. That display ended nearly a decade ago, we just learned. We apologize for any misunderstanding or inconvenience our misinformation may have caused. Further, we pledge to keep up on all the important goings on in Newport-Mesa from now on, such as a shopping center to be built north of the San Diego Freeway -- it may be named South Coast Plaza -- and the development of an area south of Newport Beach, set to be called Newport Coast.

As coach of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse program, G.W. Mix doesn't get to see his two sons play in college often. He's too busy coaching, while Ryan Mix and Casey Mix are away competing. Ryan plays for the University of Notre Dame and Casey for UC Santa Barbara. Mix's boys are coming home this week and he will get to see them play in person. Dad came up with a great idea: create a college lacrosse exhibition in Orange County and invite the teams his sons play on. The event, which looks to promote lacrosse in California, took several years to pull off. The schedules worked out for all parties involved.

Former Mayor Norma Hertzog-Wagner returned to Costa Mesa, her old hometown, in May after 17 years away. Then, Friday, she got to be part of history. Hertzog-Wagner, who served two terms during the 1970s and 1980s, was among the speakers and walkers in the city's first Relay for Life at Orange Coast College on Friday. The American Cancer Society has sponsored the fundraising walks since 1985, but until Friday, Costa Mesa had never hosted one within its boundaries. For that matter, Hertzog-Wagner, a breast cancer survivor, had never walked in a relay before.

"It was a natural rivalry right from the start," former longtime OCC football coach Dick Tucker said. "That was a game we always wanted to win no matter what."

Barry Faulkner The Orange Coast College football team hopes the spanking new synthetic playing surface won't be the only thing novel about tonight's Mission Conference clash with visiting Saddleback. The Pirates, in fact, are hoping for a fresh start to a season that has opened with a pair of defeats to extend the program's losing streak to six. "I believed we needed to be 2-0 heading into conference and instead we're 0-2," OCC Coach Mike Taylor said.
