Two weeks ago Kimberly Stotmore found herself accosted for her shaved head. A man grabbed Stotmore as she walked to her car in the parking lot of Santa Ana College and accused the mother of two of being a skinhead. Stotmore, also an 18-year nurse, tried to explain that her lack of hair was merely the result of chemo treatments she recently completed while combating breast cancer. “He didn’t believe I had cancer, he didn’t want to believe me,” Stotmore said.

Surf fishing is wide open all along the south coastline. Prime spots off Huntington Beach are kicking out barred perch, corbina and yellowfin croaker while the calmer surf line between the Newport and Balboa piers has been the beach to fish for perch, a fair number of corbina and halibut. The water temperature is holding in the low 70s and this is making fishing very comfortable during the early morning hours and on into the night time fishing period. Angler's Center in Newport Beach is always a good place to find out what's happening around Newport and a stop by the tackle shop last week to check on off shore fishing ended by setting up a fishing date with reel service manager, Ed Dillon of Newport Beach, to fish a good morning tide on Thursday.

A cross-country move to Newport Beach in 2007 turned out to be a life-changing experience for Daria Gordeeva-Grinkova. Before, she seemed destined to become a figure skater, following in the footsteps of her renowned parents, Katia Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkova. But when Daria came from Connecticut to Newport Beach two weeks before her freshman year at Sage Hill School, she hung up the skates and took up lacrosse. The life of a competitive ice skater is behind her. Daria’s life has changed.

Deepa Bharath Holly Halsted Balthis was like the "Queen Mum" for Rose Queens. It makes sense. Until last week, she was the oldest surviving Rose Queen. And for 73 years, Rose Queens looked up to Balthis as their glorious predecessor. Balthis died on Friday of natural causes at her home in Laguna Beach. She was 95. But until Balthis' last breath, she took pride in her role as an emissary for the annual Tournament of Roses, her son Frank Balthis Jr. said.

Brad Faxon already has one win on the Champions Tour, but you could say he's still finding his way. Faxon, an eight-time PGA Tour winner who turned 50 seven months ago, had a troublesome start to his Toshiba Classic debut Wednesday. He showed up to Newport Beach Golf Course to play in the pro-am. One problem, the Toshiba is at Newport Beach Country Club. Not a big deal. He made it to NBCC for an interview with media and then out for his afternoon of pro-am. No harm. It goes in sync to how Faxon feels on the Champions Tour.

Stewart was among others swimming in the race about 8 a.m. in the cove area of Newport Dunes, but "in a matter of moments this gentleman was facedown in the water," Knipp said.
