When asked to name their favorite teacher, many students have a clear choice. However, those teachers are rarely, if ever, recognized. The Costa Mesa Library Foundation set out to change that this year with its first favorite teacher contest. TeWinkle Middle School teachers Denise McKenzie, Rebecca Millam and Misty Smith and College Park kindergarten teacher Cindy Fernald were each nominated by current and former students as contest finalists. More than 200 students, some of whom had parents's help, submitted nominations for teachers in the Costa Mesa area.

Summer in Newport calls for charity on the water. The Pacific Symphony Orchestra's Young Professionals support group, known as Overture, held its second Balboa Scavenger Hunt on the bay. The hunt on water began with a champagne reception fronted by co-chairs of the event Shana Fife and Chris Trela held in collaboration with the Balboa Performing Arts Theater. Five teams consisting of 40 participants then set out in electric boats, following clues to the great discovery. A major event sponsor was Lear-Baylor, creators of an electric vessel making its debut on the harbor this year.
