June Casagrande Big boat owners take heart: The biggest travelift in Newport Harbor is being built at the Newport Harbor Shipyard. Until now, owners of boats larger than 140,000 pounds have had to sail on down to San Diego whenever they wanted some shipyard servicing. But now, boats up to 190,000 pounds and 100 feet long need look no farther than the Lido Peninsula. "We've been in business since 1983, and in that time, a majority of our customers have gotten bigger and bigger boats," said Jesse Salem, owner of the Newport Harbor Shipyard.

OK. Who on the fair board has connections with Mountain High? For those of you who haven't seen it, the fair has a new high-towering ride that looks like a ski lift. It was cool enough to catch the attention of my almost 4-year-old, and I was mean enough not to let him go on it because I thought he was too little. This was opening day, before the Adrenaline Drop and Booster injuries. Oh yeah, I paid for that for the next 10 minutes in pouting and tears, but hey, there was no way I was going to let a toddler -- all hopped-up on ice cream and funnel cakes -- get on a ride 20 feet in the air with nothing but a lap bar over him. I decided to check it out for myself, so City Editor James Meier and I went over to the fair on Wednesday at noon.

As my wife and I in a few days are going to get onto an airplane and take off for a vacation, I again started wondering how an airplane actually flies. To me it seems like an unnatural thing for a long and heavy canister with wings to be able to get off the ground and fly through the air. So I did a little research on the subject. The three major factors of airplane flight are the engines that produce thrust, the wings that produce lift, and the flaps, elevators, and rudders that are used to control the direction in which the aircraft travels.

Newport Coast Drive was briefly closed Wednesday as workers from a local cement truck company did some heavy lifting to clean up their mess from a few weeks ago. After drilling holes in the drum and securing it with slings, a tow truck pulled up the multi-ton cement mixing bowl that had toppled down the Newport Coast hill last month in a crash. California Highway Patrol crews tried to pull up the drum the day of the crash, but didn’t have vehicles big enough to lift it, officials said.

Cue the spotlight and let's give sixth-grader Dusty Brandom a standing ovation. Dusty performed this week in Lincoln Elementary School's production of "Oliver!" playing the wicked Mr. Bumble. That's no small task, especially considering Dusty has muscular dystrophy and can't walk. And although confined to a wheelchair, Dusty took on the role of the villainous head of the orphanage, belting out three songs along the way. Born with a type of muscular dystrophy that affects only boys, Dusty started showing symptoms of the disease six years ago. By the time he was 10, he had no more strength in his legs.

"She's a beautiful lady and she's kind to everybody," said Earl Enes, a senior who regularly brings L'Eclair cartoons he drew when he was younger.

A massive suspension that had sidelined more than 700 Little League baseball players in Newport Beach has been lifted and games will be allowed to resume. A dispute between adults -- those in the league and those in the group that oversees it -- had resulted in the cancellation of two games for the young players. Joe Jennings, a board member for Newport Beach Little League, told the Daily Pilot that the punishment seemed like an “extreme action that has been harsh for so many kids.” District officials, who oversee the league and others in Orange County, handed down the suspension after determining that the league had too many coaches serving on its board of directors.

It worked the first time the teams played, in late December when the Barons won a consolation game at the North Orange County Classic via shootout. But Friday night at Jim Scott Stadium, Mulvaney, the four-year varsity player, was ready. And, while CdM surely has a long way to go on its quest for its first-ever CIF title, the Sea Kings just as surely have been giving their fans their money's worth in the last three games.

On the surface, Corona del Mar High's 3-0 win in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 boys' soccer playoffs looks like an easy win. It was far from that on Thursday. Glendale, traveling a long distance for the second time in three days during the postseason, made it hard on the Sea Kings through most of the match, until the hosts scored two late goals. A goal on a penalty kick and one on a 35-yard free kick doomed Glendale's chances of coming back again in the playoffs.
