COSTA MESA - The only bench the Newport Coast Elementary fifth- and sixth-grade girls' silver division soccer team had during this week's Daily Pilot Cup was the one Coach Ramzi Ammari carried to and from games over his shoulder. Ammari's two rows of five retractable plastic seats, that folded down to fit concisely in a convenient tote bag, allowed his players to rest during pregame talks, halftime adjustments and postgame breakdowns. During games, however, the seats sat empty, since all 11 players on the roster were on the field.

COSTA MESA — Newport Coast Elementary Coach Ramzi Ammari has the rarest of rosters for the fifth- and sixth-grade girls' silver division in the Daily Pilot Cup youth soccer tournament. In the Coyotes' tournament-opening 2-0 victory over Whittier on Thursday at Davis Elementary, they displayed depth, balance, passion, unselfishness and organization. But after completely dominating the pace of the game and amassing a 21-2 advantage in saves, there is at least one area of concern for Ammari as his team moves ahead: "The goalkeeper position is probably the most challenging to fill," said Ammari, who praised the heart and Johna Zahed, who made one save but faced her greatest challenge trying to stay entertained while the ball remained at the other end of the field virtually the entire game.

COSTA MESA - The girls' third- and fourth-grade bronze division is an interesting one at the Daily Pilot Cup. Many are dabbling in "the beautiful game" for the first time. But that didn't stop Newport Coast Elementary from starting strong in its pool-play game Thursday night against Kaiser. Alisa Tognoli scored in the game's very first minute for Newport Coast. Then, teammate Jessica Treska scored in the first minute of the second half to again give the Coyotes the lead. Tognoli would score again later, and Newport Coast would hold on for a 3-1 victory in its tournament opener at Davis Elementary.

SAN BERNARDINO - When Karl Pettway opened the front door to his second-story stuccoed apartment, a man posing as a construction worker told him his car may have been dinged. Pettway peeked out and spotted his Ford, unscathed. But what he didn't see immediately were special agents from Homeland Security Investigations and a Newport Beach police detective waiting to arrest him on suspicion of felony possession of child pornography once he was a safe distance from his neighbors.

With completion of the Newport Beach Civic Center, the city of Newport Beach has a civic landmark in which it can take pride. The move from the ugly, crumbling, crowded City Hall that served this city for so many years has finally taken place. In the late 1960s — more than 40 years ago — I was directing public relations for the Los Angeles-headquartered architectural firm of Welton Becket and Associates when the Newport Beach City Council selected our firm to plan and design a civic center.

Newport Beach Councilwoman Leslie Daigle on Tuesday blasted the recent sentencing of a driver who killed a popular doctor in a September hit-and-run accident. Michael Jason Lopez, 40, of Anaheim was sentenced this month after pleading guilty to killing Catherine "Kit" Campion Ritz, who practiced in Newport and lived in Irvine, while she was bicycling along Newport Coast in September. Four years in prison and one year in county jail is too light a sentence for a man who left the doctor in the street to die, Daigle said during the oral reports portion of Tuesday's council meeting.

It's easy for Corona del Mar High senior Alec Adamson to explain why he likes playing in the Ojai Tennis Tournament, which celebrates its 113th year this season. "It's the legacy of the tournament," Adamson said. "The tournament's been going for 113 years, and so many great players have played and won it. It's really a privilege just to be able to go up there. It's a really special location. With all of the best players being up there from the Pac-12 at the same time, it's just a great experience, being up there with all of the other players.
