I am pro-resident and pro-traffic flow. There is only one road in Newport Beach that touches all seven districts. It's one of only two east-west roads across the bay. Pacific Coast Highway is the lifeblood of our community. The closure of lanes at PCH and Dover Drive because of the Mariners Pointe project is creating inconveniences for motorists and bicyclists. PCH is a unique animal; it has two lanes in some places and four lanes in others. PCH and Dover is a choke point that tapers down to two lanes and needs to operate at maximum capacity.

When covering breaking news, landmarks help to tell readers where the event occurred. In many cases, the environment around the police tape is hard to distinguish from any other place in a city. In photographer Kent Treptow's picture of the scene of a car chase that ended with a suicide near the foot of the Huntington Beach Pier, at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street, fewer landmarks would be better known. The Ruby's restaurant at the end of the pier and the lifeguard headquarters at its foot give readers a sense of exactly where the events took place.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Dane Williams’ friends gathered Saturday morning to honor his memory at one of the 23-year-old surfer’s favorite spots — off the beach by Pacific Coast Highway, just beyond the waves. Four days after Williams’ body was discovered in a San Diego alley, more than two dozen friends and family members held a “paddle-out” ceremony in his honor. The group ventured into the water near Williams’ family’s home on surfboards, carrying flowers and a wreath, and held hands in a circle as dozens of others watched from the shore.

June Casagrande The city next door has plans to build a 31.5-acre complex of commercial, retail, residential, office and restaurant space that includes 400 hotel rooms and 516 condominiums. What does this Huntington Beach development have to do with Newport Beach? Maybe nothing. Maybe everything. The Newport Beach City Council will decide Tuesday whether to put in their two cents on a project some believe could create traffic and other problems for its neighbors to the north.

Costa Mesa was recently awarded a grant to design and construct a bike trail connecting the city's Westside to the Santa Ana River, according to a city news release Friday. The $1-million award came from the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement program run by the U.S. Department Transportation. The path, as currently proposed, will go along West 19th Street starting from Placentia Avenue, then west through Talbert Regional Park and end at the river's pathways. The bike trail could cost as much as $1.7 million.

NEWPORT BEACH (KTLA) - A so-called “King Tide” is being blamed for flooding in several coastal communities in Orange County on Thursday, according to KTLA . The National Weather Service is forecasting high tides along with rip currents for local beaches and all along the West Coast. The alignment of the earth, moon and sun is giving the seas an extra gravitational kick onto the shore, which can cause flooding in low-lying areas. Early morning flooding was reported in Sunset Beach, Huntington Harbor and Newport Beach.

Despite passionate public outcry from Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa residents about revived talks of the proposed 19th Street Bridge, Newport Beach council members are slow to distance themselves completely from the project. Councilwoman Leslie Daigle is requesting the city reexamine the bridge — which would alleviate traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway and Victoria Street bridges — ahead of either reaffirming the city's position to support it or come out against it. "We're taking it up as an accommodation to our neighbors in H.B. who are impacted by traffic," Daigle wrote in an email.

NEWPORT BEACH — When she grows up, Piper Hunt's parents one day will have to tell her the story behind her birth certificate. It doesn't read like most. Delivered by: Steve Martin. Place of birth: Pacific Coast Highway and Dover Drive in Newport Beach. No, not Steve Martin, the actor, but Steve Martin, the nine-year paramedic for the Newport Beach Fire Department. The location, though, that's as accurate as it can be. As Piper's parents learned, their 5-day old daughter, who was delivered on Monday, is a patient listener.

James A. Stuart Stuart passed away March 22, 2010, with his daughter, Louise, by his side. Until his death at age 86, “Big Jim” was a teller of tall tales and a twinkle-eyed punster with a hearty handshake and a ready laugh. Jim served on the submarine USS Toro in World War II, then married Betty McDonald of Fountain Valley in 1946.  They raised three daughters in Newport Beach, and owned Jim's Muffler Service on Pacific Coast Highway, and later on Old Newport Boulevard.

The L-shaped bundle was giving Kelly Beavers trouble as she maneuvered it carefully toward a plastic crate in the lab at the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach. A pair of webbed feet began kicking under the white sheet that she cradled in her arms. A long beak, which Beavers gripped tightly with one hand, thrashed about as well. Looking around the crates, which had been manufactured for dogs but were housing pelicans Tuesday afternoon, she opted for one that was small enough to hold a single, hot-tempered bird.
