Deepa Bharath Several residents in the Spyglass Hill neighborhood were evacuated in the wee hours of Wednesday after a car crashed into a gas meter, causing a gas pipe to break and leak, officials said. Ryan Kevin O'Connor, 22, a University of Colorado student who lives on nearby Rocky Point Drive, was arrested an hour after the crash on suspicion of diving under the influence of alcohol, Newport Beach Police Sgt. Steve Shulman said. A 2003 Jaguar rammed into a gas meter at the corner of Morro Bay and Goleta Point drives at about 2:05 a.m. Wednesday, Shulman said.

In late September 1986, friends of Florence “Floss” Schumacher said, she found herself frantically working on seating arrangements the night before the county’s biggest gala. It was the opening of the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, and Schumacher had chaired the committee slated to put on “the party to end all parties.” “She had so many friends she promised wonderful seats, but there were only so many seats,” laughed Jan Landstrom, Schumacher’s longtime friend.

Ahoy. This week being Thanksgiving means it is time once again to let loose the holiday shoppers the day after the feast and to bring out the holiday decorations. Speaking of shopping, my holiday shopping advice is -- now that boat loan rates are at a record low -- buy yourself a boat. This might be the best time for you to get a loan on a new boat or for you to refinance an existing loan with a lower interest rate. Overall, the statistics show that boat registration was up for the first half of the year across the country and in California.

Ahoy. Nice to be back in my home port of Newport Harbor this week, and I really enjoyed skippering a private yacht last night around our harbor after being on the open ocean and visiting a half a dozen ports. Next week, I am scheduled to deliver another yacht from here to Emeryville in East San Francisco Bay, and again assisting me will be Capt. Chandler Bell of Bongos Sportfishing. Yet, the probability of postponing the voyage is high because of the 6- to 10-foot-high swells from Point Conception north to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Lindsay Sandham Before there were wetsuits, there were Wikies wool swim shorts. Before the modern-day foam surfboard with a fiberglass finish, people rode the waves on shaped wooden planks. And before millions of people discovered the beauty of Orange County, there were miles and miles of wide-open coastline, with huge waves and only a few surfers, sailors and fishermen to enjoy them. Surfers, water sports fans, and Orange County residents, the newest exhibit at the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum offers something for almost everyone.

Deepa Bharath Police are warning residents in the city's "port and bay streets" about burglars who have hit several homes in the area, stealing items worth tens of thousands of dollars. The first of this string of burglaries occurred on Oct. 25 in the 2300 block of Port Carlisle Place, said Newport Beach Police Sgt. Steve Shulman. Incidents were reported as recently as Thursday. Several homes in the area -- including those on Drake's Bay, Morro Bay, Port Chelsea Place and Port Aberdeene Place -- were hit, he said.

One thing you quickly realize when you meet Blake Davis is that he doesn’t like talking about himself much. That’s because he’s a genuinely modest guy. It’s also because he’s pretty busy accomplishing things — winning surfing contests, for example. Blake recently won the Western Surf Assn. 16-and-Under Championships held at “Church”, south of San Clemente. No small feat by any means, but for a goofy-footer at a right-hand break, winning going backside is pretty impressive.
