Kicking has been a lonely job for Dillan Freiberg the past two years. While the football team worked out on the practice field at Newport Harbor High, Freiberg called the stadium home. He wasn’t completely by himself. There was a football and tee. This year, the senior is all alone again, in the Orange County record book that is. This type of isolation feels good to Freiberg. Freiberg set the county record for consecutive successful extra-point kicks at 60 last week.

COSTA MESA — Six hours a day, five days a week, Amanda Schultz stands at a busy intersection and tries to grab the attention of strangers. A number of them brush past her, while others stop and engage her in debates. Every so often, one whips out a pen and agrees to donate $15 or more each month.

Lolita Harper The city's teens sniff cocaine, steal alcohol, smoke marijuana, dance half naked, leave their underage friends passed out on the sidewalk, fight and have casual sex in threesomes in the bathroom while their parents have affairs and embezzle millions of dollars. Or at least that's what the creators of the new Fox network show "The O.C." would have you believe. The highly anticipated teen drama made its debut Tuesday night, telling the tale of a down-on-his-luck kid who gets busted for stealing a car and winds up living with his public defender in Newport Beach.

Charlie Maas never met Nicolas Cage up close, but the tour guide still thought of him as a fixture in Newport Harbor. “He was never shy,” said Maas, a captain for the Fun Zone Boat Co. who often guided visitors past the actor’s beachfront home. “He was one of those guys who, if he was out on his boat or his patio, he’d wave and be friendly. That’s how the old celebrities were. John Wayne was really popular on the harbor because he was like that.
