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.

Integrity is essential to public service and is something achieved over a long period of time, a Costa Mesa City Council candidate stressed during a conservative candidates forum Thursday evening. "I believe that the old man who's running for City Council can lend his experience and work with people," said Lee Ramos, a Costa Mesa resident since 1947 who serves on the Charter and Fairview Park committees. Ramos, 70, was one of three invited candidates from Costa Mesa and Newport Beach who spoke at the Newport-Mesa Tea Party event.

A former U.S. solicitor general who has argued dozens of prominent cases before the Supreme Court has agreed to represent Newport Beach in its bid for judicial intervention in the city's years-long legal battle with sober-living homes. The city this week hired attorney Theodore Olson, whose credits include Bush vs. Gore and Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. Newport Beach will pay Olson $280,000 to petition the high court to review a case that opened the city up to discrimination lawsuits based on a zoning ordinance that pushed out dozens of group homes for recovering addicts.

In the desert, in triple-digit heat, and on asphalt, Nic Sargeant has the urge to play basketball. He misses the sport that much. Sargeant is spending spring break in La Quinta, where he and a half dozen of his closest friends rented out a house with a pool. A volleyball net is set up in the back, but if it were up to Sargeant, there would also be a portable basketball goal. Sargeant last suited up for the Newport Harbor High boys' basketball team on Feb. 21. Almost two months have passed since the Sailors' season ended in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 2AA playoffs.

The seventh-grade boy looked down at his blank work sheet, unsure how to begin solving the multistep algebraic equation that the teacher had written on the white board. After a moment's hesitation, he began building the equation, X + -2 = -6, with blue and white tiles sitting atop his work sheet to find the mysterious value of X. After manipulating the tiles, he thought he had the answer. However, after a second look he quickly corrected himself, earning a nod of approval from his Costa Mesa Middle School math teacher, Racine Cross.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Welcome to the Newport Harbor High boys' tennis season, where one of the top doubles players in Southern California can team with a football player. It happened Thursday at Marina High. Newport junior Reese Stalder, ranked No. 4 in Southern California in boys' 18 doubles and No. 7 in singles, teamed up with tennis novice Garrett Hall, a senior running back and safety in football. Stalder and Hall did well, sweeping for the Sailors at No. 3 doubles. Hall's mom, Cheryl, told her son that he should get something signed by Stalder that will be valuable when he's famous one day. "I'll probably get my shoe signed by the end of the season," Garrett Hall said.

In the first, CdM had to survive a last-minute, penalty-kick attempt against Beckman. In the second, the Sea Kings had to rally from a two-goal deficit at Northwood in the final 20 minutes. CdM then earned two shootout wins in its first two games of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, against Fountain Valley and Upland.

When the expensive new civic center opened in Newport Beach last year, some claimed it as a symbol of an irresponsible government out of touch with the people it represented. Councilman Keith Curry served as mayor at the time. He has embraced the project, which ultimately cost the city nearly $140 million, as an example of quality work that will meet the needs of the community for decades to come. He noted that the project is more than just a City Hall; it comprises a library, park, emergency center, community room and parking structure.
