If you're old enough to have watched "Saturday Night Live" in the early 1990s, you may remember "Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey," a series of pseudo-philosophical musings set to soft music over pastoral backgrounds. One classic read: "To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started, and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad. " Perhaps since I haven't lost a parent to a homicidal Chuckles, I've never felt much one way or another about clowns.

Max and Jake Caliger were in for a treat at the Newport Beach Film Festival opening Thursday. The Newport Beach residents, who are 12 and 13 years old, respectively, arrived early at the Edwards Big Newport 6 to see their favorite band, Green Day. As it turned out, they got what they wanted - and then some. The Caligers positioned themselves at the end of the red carpet where the night's stars were arriving, and as Billie Joe Armstrong, Tré Cool and Mike Dirnt passed by, they stopped for a photo with the brothers.

IRVINE - By showing proficiency in most areas that counted Saturday, the UC Irvine men's basketball team got the rare opportunity to expose what, for now at least, is an innocuous weakness. "We're not very comfortable with an 18-point lead," Anteaters Coach Russell Turner said with a smile after his team faltered slightly near the finish of a 79-69 Big West Conference victory against visiting Cal State Northridge before a season-best crowd of 3,907 at the Bren Events Center. But before getting the chance to fritter away some of and advantage that swelled to 20 points with 3:39 left, the Anteaters thrilled the homecoming rooters with their best shooting performance of the season.

Deciding the fate of 38 constitutional amendments sounds like a big deal. But Newport Beach officials say changing the city's guiding legal document is a routine part of civic maintenance required to adapt a 54-year-old document to modern times. Measure EE will ask voters to modify the charter Nov. 6 by checking just one box to make about three dozen changes to a document whose weight hovers somewhere between municipal and state laws. "The charter is basically the constitution of the city," said Newport Beach City Attorney Aaron Harp.

One thing I have learned in politics is that you can never predict who will oppose an idea until it's proposed. Certainly this is the case with the provision in Measure EE that would ban the use of red-light cameras in Newport Beach. The opponents of Measure EE say we should reject this provision because "it may preclude technological advances beneficial to our city. " They are wrong, and here is why. Because I am active in the League of Cities, I get the opportunity to see how issues are addressed across California and throughout our nation.

Newport Beach voters will have the option in November to ban red-light cameras from the city. The City Council voted Tuesday to include a red-light camera prohibition in the list of charter amendments that will come before the electorate this fall. The city has no red-light cameras now. Other cities have banned them amid complaints that they were merely a way to boost city revenue. The vote was the culmination of a months-long charter update process, where a committee sifted through about 40 sections of the city's constitution and recommended changes to the council.

Any nerves of being poked with a needle were likely calmed by some Beethoven during a blood drive Wednesday afternoon in Corona del Mar. With Pacific Symphony musicians in one corner and medical equipment in the other, some 60 people came, heard and donated during the third annual Musical Blood and Marrow Drive at Newport Center United Methodist Church. The music of Dvorak and Schubert was also among the selections that helped serenade the donors, who gave 49 pints of viable blood to the American Red Cross, said Pacific Symphony violinist Nancy Eldridge in an email.

IRVINE - In a season that may end up less than the norm, a sense of normalcy has surfaced at least to start the last three weekend series for the UC Irvine baseball team.

Visiting UC Riverside was the latest victim, falling, 9-2, in front of 483 at Anteater Ballpark on Friday.

The scene opens on images of twisted metal, deflated airbags and glass on asphalt. What resembles the opening scenes of the California Highway Patrol's "Red Asphalt," meant to deter drunk and irresponsible driving, is actually a new public service announcement produced by the city of Irvine to deter drivers from running red lights. According to information provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), Irvine ranks third in Orange County cities in the number of collisions and victims, where the primary factors in the collisions were missed signals or signs.
