The 20th Toshiba Classic will be mostly remembered for Fred Couples' second time winning the event, as he surprised many with his victory by one stroke. But the Toshiba Classic will be a great memory for much different reasons for Thomas Terry, a Newport Harbor High senior. The 17-year-old, who plays on the Sailors boys' golf team, worked as the caddy for P.H. Horgan III, who qualified for the tournament March 10. Horgan tied for third at the qualifier after he shot four-under-par 67 at Goose Creek Golf Course in Mira Loma.

Ahoy! I am pleased that the discussion about water taxis in Newport Harbor has bubbled up to the surface again. Yes, taxis have failed in the past because the logistics and paying ridership were not well thought out. Additionally, the project was privately funded without the city or any transportation agency subsidies. This is one adventure that has to be a public and private venture. First, it was a little worrisome when the City Council tried to dictate the boat's power source from the dais and not from reality.

On Thursday morning, 25-year-old Kane Curran spotted a creature he may never see again. A pod of about 40 or 50 false killers whales - that's actually their name - swam roughly a mile and half from the Newport Harbor entrance, Curran's third sighting of them in the past 24 hours. "Being out here for so long and seeing a species I've never seen before, it's quite an experience," said Curran, who grew up in the area. "It could very well be something I don't see ever again. " False killer whales are the third largest of the dolphin family.

Newport Harbor High School students are using their smartphones to let high school administrators know what's going on with them.

"This system seems to be the 21st century equivalent of dropping an anonymous note in a mailbox.

The reason why Newport Harbor High senior Eddie Nolan, a football player, decided to join the boys' tennis team was simple enough. "It's good to be kept busy," Nolan said Tuesday at The Tennis Club Newport Beach, where the Sailors were playing Sage Hill. "Coach K [Kristen Case] is a great coach, too. " What Case's Sailors have this year is three great additions to the squad. Nolan, a linebacker and defensive end, and senior running back/safety Garrett Hall decided to take up tennis.
