A small sewage spill in Newport Bay led health authorities to close the water to swimming near Adams Street Monday. Grease blocking a private sewer line from Newport Landing caused the spill Sunday of between 5 and 50 gallons of sewage, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency. An area 50 feet in each direction from Adams Street is closed to swimming and diving until bacteria tests show the water meets safety standards, which is usually within two to three days. For more information on sewage spills or water closures, call the health care agency at (714)

Young Chang A spinning ceiling fan makes you wonder for a second whether it's the beach breeze swooping by. The ocean's right there, a hint of water is carried east by a subtle evening breeze, and the illusion seems real. A pigeon flutters from one end of the top patio deck to the other, weaving from strappy high heels to suede men's sandals, and boats named Belle and Patriot glide by as if on cue. There's more. Servers in Hawaiian-print shirts and khaki shorts shuttle turkey sandwiches stacked inches high from the bar to the tables.

Unofficially record-high ocean temperatures this summer aren't appealing only to those who want to dip their toes in a toasty ocean. They're drawing those who want to dip in a hook, line and sinker, too. The warm water has resulted in an unusual abundance of tropical-water fish in Orange County waters, and local fishers have reported catching more mahi-mahi— also known as dorado or dolphin fish — yellowtail, swordfish, striped marlin...

Author Toni Andrews remembers the dark corners and sticky floors of The Class of ’47 bar down the street from the Balboa Island Ferry as the place where she learned how to play pool and celebrated her 30th birthday. The walls are plastered with photographs of old patrons like John Wayne, an aging pinup girl and a bearded character who went by the name Sailor Ron. The old bartender, who has since passed away, kept a photograph of Andrews behind the bar and gave her a dirty nickname after she handled a drunken patron’s unwanted advances with particular finesse.

Condominium residents near the site of a prospective homeless recovery complex in Costa Mesa are criticizing the plans, contending that while the aim to help the needy is noble, the project has the potential to harm their neighborhood and pose a risk to their children's safety. Earlier this month, the City Council recommended looking into using Civic Center Park, a 2.52-acre grassy expanse across from City Hall and the Orange County Fairgrounds as the site for permanent housing with support services for Costa Mesa's homeless.

Residents of Costa Mesa's Monticello and Newport Landing communities are facing off with Vanguard University over what they say is excessive use of the school's soccer field. Bright field lights, early morning and late-evening play, noise, music and parking are among the annoyances they ascribe to the Costa Mesa-based youth soccer club using the complex. Vanguard last year entered into a 10-year joint-use agreement, with the option to extend to 20, with Pateadores, allowing the group to use the university's soccer field on Vanguard Way, said Kelly Kannwischer, vice president of university advancement.

Deepa Bharath NEWPORT BEACH -- Rare gargantuan visitors were seen swimming off the coast Wednesday afternoon. The finback whale -- an endangered species and second in size only to the blue whale -- was spotted about three to four miles south of Newport Beach by a boat full of eager whale watchers. Just when they thought they saw one, three others surfaced, said Rob Ellingboe, captain of the Nautilus and tour leader at Newport Landing, Fishing and Whale Watching in the Balboa Fun Zone.

The park across from Costa Mesa City Hall and the Orange County Fairgrounds is no longer poised to be the site of a housing complex for the homeless, officials said Tuesday, apparently bowing to pressure from neighbors and facing potential deed restrictions. "We have opted not to pursue this site right now," Assistant city CEO Rick Francis said. "We are hopeful that another suitable location can be found soon. The City Council and city staff remain committed to finding solutions to address the issue of homelessness in our community, and we look forward to receiving input from our citizens.

Newport Beach is in the process of reviewing possible changes to the land-use portion of the city's general plan. The city periodically updates the document, a state-mandated guide for development, to reflect changes, such as economic growth and housing needs. Newport Beach last amended its plan in 2006. City leaders hope to place proposed revisions on the ballot in 2014. As the economy recovers, city officials want to make changes that will ensure the document is appropriately monitoring the way land is being developed.

Newport Beach resident Don Dickey, born in 1930 just a few blocks from Newport Pier, remembers watching horses haul nets full of fish up onto the sand as a child. Although the pier itself has been torn down and rebuilt a dozen times, not much has changed in the area until city officials broke ground at the base of the pier Monday on what is believed to be the largest public art project in the city?s 102-year history. ?I don?t think this area will ever get old,? said Dickey, who came to the groundbreaking ceremony Monday along with many other longtime Newport residents.

Newport Beach city officials broke ground today on what is believed to be the largest public arts project in the city’s 102-year history. The McFadden Square Centennial Legacy Project at the base of Newport Pier will include granite benches surrounding a bronze sculpture and a circular walking path marked with significant events from throughout the city’s history. “This area represents the growth of Newport Beach — this is the sport where Newport Beach originated,” said Mayor Ed Selich, before the groundbreaking ceremony.

Love was all around this week, as the song goes. I felt it in my fingers, I felt it in my toes. Valentine’s Day tends to bring out the romantic and sentimental in a lot of us, and I have to admit I’m smitten. Smitten. That’s an old-fashioned word you don’t hear too much of anymore, but it’s really appropriate here, because the objects of my affection are the debonair, charming, funny, well-spoken, intelligent and attentive 80-year-old and older men I have had the good fortune to meet as a Daily Pilot reporter.
