Corona del Mar High sophomore Maddie Musselman can't help but notice all of the Olympians helping out with the CdM water polo program. Olympians Kelly Rulon and CdM alumna Tumua Anae are coaching on the CdM Grey girls' club team for CdM Aquatics. Four-time Olympian Ryan Bailey has been helping out with the CdM boys' program for the last several years. "I just think that's so cool," Musselman said. Some people say that Musselman is a future Olympian too. It's not a stretch at all, considering that she made her debut with the U.S. senior national team last December at the Canada Cup and has been participating in national team scrimmages with Coach Adam Krikorian since the high school water polo season ended.

Newport Beach police detectives are forwarding evidence gathered in the Corona del Mar High School cheating case to the Orange County District Attorney's office next week, police said Wednesday.

Criminal charges are far from a certainty.

The historic Balboa Village filled with new energy Sunday afternoon, as business owners gathered under white tents to offer passersby everything from lobster rolls to boating artwork. The event, called a Kickoff Fiesta, celebrated the upcoming Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race. It also marked a chance to promote ongoing revitalization efforts on the Balboa Peninsula — an area sometimes better known for its plethora of bars and unruly twenty-somethings than for kid-friendly activity.

"At this point it does not seem that there are obvious ties between the two, but of course [detectives will] do a full investigation," Newport Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella said. For more than a year, Newport police have been investigating the death of Tina Hoang.

While some Newport Beach residents eagerly await the opening of Marina Park in two years, others already have cause for celebration. They've been promised some of the location's sand. To make way for the 23-slip marina planned for the new Balboa Peninsula park, crews will soon dredge more than 40,000 cubic yards of material from the harbor and redistribute it throughout the city's shoreline. It's a perfect source for reusable beach material — a highly sought-after commodity for beach dwellers who experience, quite literally, life's shifting sands.

After Estancia High senior Celia Duran earned Newport-Mesa Girls' Basketball Player of the Year honors last year, she received congratulations from Corona del Mar sophomore Natalia Bruening. The two players ran into each other at club basketball tryouts last spring. Soon, they were talking about being co-Players of the Year this year. "We called it," Duran said with a smile. Duran is a 5-foot-7 guard, while Bruening is a 6-foot-3 forward. While they played much different roles, both Duran and Bruening helped ensure big years for their respective squads.
