Amanda Pennington Newport-Mesa is a hot spot for retail and fashion, and South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island are arguably on the forefront of fashion trends in Southern California. The major push recently has been attracting area-exclusive stores to each center, each successful in the feat last year. In 2006, South Coast Plaza opened a dozen stores, 11 of which were exclusive to Orange County. In the next year, South Coast Plaza will welcome the first H&M stores in Orange County, with one on each side of the center, according to shopping center representatives.

Sunlight reflecting off a concave makeup mirror caused a couch to catch fire inside a Newport Beach home Monday, according to a news release. The rays streamed through the second-floor window of a residence in the 600 block of Poinsettia and bounced off the mirror, which rested on a fabric loveseat, said Newport Beach police spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella. No one at the Corona del Mar home, but the smoke alarm went off, prompting a neighbor to call the authorities. Seven Newport Beach Fire Department units responded at 10:13 a.m. The couch was the only thing damaged.

In 2001, Natasha Herzig found herself at age 19 staring at a gun, yanked into a car before she could make a sound. She spent a year trapped, working as a high-end escort for a pimp. The indignities were numerous. She remembers receiving a beating for asking whether she could go home. There was the john who once tried to suffocate her with a shower curtain after forcing her to lie in an ice-filled bathtub. She had to walk "the track," meaning the street, to meet her prostitution quota.

Deirdre Newman Being an ancient Egyptian means that you can sit inside an ancient burial tomb and feast on pomegranate, figs and dates while listening with rapt attention to the gory details of the mummification process without losing your appetite. And when you hear that the process involved removing all of the organs except the heart, you don't even raise a heavily penciled eyebrow or roll your eyelashes laden with black mascara in disgust. That was the scenario in Beth Nowlin's sixth-grade classroom at Kaiser Elementary School in Costa Mesa on Monday as boys and girls raided their mother's makeup drawers and closets to dress as authentically Egyptian as they could.

All club members take steps to support low-income single parents on campus and within the community.

CERRITOS - A lawsuit by USA Water Polo contesting a prohibition of high school coaches from working with prep athletes on Olympic development teams has been settled by mutual agreement with the CIF Southern Section. Section officials have agreed to let prep coaches coach national junior and national youth teams, even if athletes from their high schools are participating. This is a waiver of the "Association rule" which has also drawn criticism from coaches in boys and girls volleyball and boys and girls soccer, among others.
