June Casagrande If we've heard it once, we've heard it a jillion, kerzillion times: Newport Harbor is the largest small craft harbor in the world. Right? Right? We can't know for sure whether this is wrong. The one thing we can know is that anyone who says it's right probably hasn't done his or her homework. That's understandable. The homework is overwhelming. Even trying to get to the real story is an exercise in frustration in a lesson on hyperbole.

After Leigh Steinberg watched his quarterback Troy Aikman deal with a concussion during the playoffs in 1994, the then-sports agent knew he had to do something about it. Ever since, Steinberg, a Newport Beach resident, has been drumming up safety awareness about concussions. His quest started slow, but it is now peaking he said because he’s getting the NFL in the act. Steinberg is helping conduct the Sports Concussion Institute’s National Concussion Summit today at the Marriott Hotel in Marina del Rey. The clinic is in its second year and will have an NFL presence for the first time, with Hall of Famers Warren Moon and Rod Woodson scheduled to speak.

DON’T CRY FOR ME, CATALINA MEL GRAU February 24, 1919-January 31, 2009 For over fifty years I had a mooring at Catalina Island.

The sea has always been an integral part of my life. Prior to going into the U.S. Army Signal Corps for five years during World War II, I worked for Walt Disney on the productions of Pinocchio and Fantasia.

Ahoy! Are waterfront barns on the horizon for our harbor, but without the farm animals? Newport Harbor already has boat storage racks commonly referred to as dry stacks on Lido Peninsula, but Marina Del Rey and Dana Point are looking to build boat barns on their waterfronts. Boat barns are not new to the boating world, but the barns are relatively new to the Southern California's coastal communities. You can find boat barns across the country in areas where the snow falls, and in regions with extreme heat.

Christian Hosoi had it all. Long before he was legally old enough to drink, the skateboarder nicknamed "Christ" was a stud on the pro circuit who was touted as an emerging rival to the legendary Tony Hawk. Hosoi's fame brought him a lot of money, parties and girls, but he also rode his board into a downward spiral of substance abuse that eventually landed him in prison. The skateboarder known for his "Christ Air" move has since reformed himself as a Huntington Beach resident and pastor at The Sanctuary church in Westminster.

MIKE WHITEHEAD Ahoy. I have received many offers from readers to crew aboard my eight-foot Sabot in the upcoming Transpac Race to Honolulu, which I mentioned in last Friday's column. I am going though the resumes now, but I do not think that I will be up to par with the Newport Sea Base's recently donated maxi turbo sled Scout Spirit, a 78-foot Reichel Pugh. I believe this is the first time that a sailboat from the Newport Sea Base has entered the 1,125-nautical-mile race from Marina del Rey to Puerto Vallarta.
