NEWPORT BEACH New boat parade sees smooth sailing It's been smoother-than-expected sailing for the annual Christmas Boat Parade this year. A shorter route and shorter schedule just instituted this year may have provided the compromise to keep participants and parade-watchers happy. A once-unlikely dream by some residents of West Santa Ana Heights that they might be annexed to Newport Beach is now under serious consideration by the city.

A framed photograph of World War II veterans valued at $10,000 has been stolen from the Arches restaurant, Newport Beach police said Friday. Police suspect that a restaurant patron swiped the 18-by-12-inch piece Wednesday evening from the south wall near the restrooms. It displayed a collage of soldiers on a beach in 1945 and a second group at the same beach 50 years later. It also contained a paper with instructions for soldiers on how to interact with Japanese soldiers and a Japanese Yen, both dating to World War II. Scrawled across the top of the white-matted background was the word “Revisited.

Stacy Brown WEST NEWPORT-- The tide has shifted bacteria-contaminated water toward Newport Beach, officials monitoring the situation said Thursday. "The currents in the ocean have now shifted southwest toward Newport Beach and (county workers) are on alert," Councilman Tod Ridgeway said. The contaminated water has forced the closure of four miles of Huntington Beach, from its border with Newport past the city's pier. County health officials continued to try to find the source of the contamination, which has eluded them for nearly two months.

At the meeting held in the city’s Council Chambers, representatives for Panini heralded the move as an improvement over the restaurant’s current location, which is smaller and lacks indoor and handicapped-accessible restrooms.

An environmental group that studied beach litter in Crystal Cove State Park for seven years has found less trash over time and that most debris comes from inland or is dumped onto the beach, rather than washing up from the sea. Volunteers from Coastkeeper Orange County surveyed a 200-yard stretch of beach just south of Pelican Point. Starting in 2003, they collected trash many times a year and analyzed results. While they found everything from lobster traps to condoms, the most common items were made of plastic and came from landlubbers.

COSTA MESA — Robert "Zeb" Ziemer, owner of the famed Goat Hill Tavern and landlord of The Helm next door, says he's not going down without a pint, er, fight. The Helm, whose owner told the Daily Pilot he was shuttering the dive bar on Newport Boulevard at the end of August, is being sued by John F. Fackler under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Fackler's lawsuit accuses The Helm of violating the act, enacted in 1990, and has named Ziemer, 80, and Helm owner Myron Miller as defendants.

Jennifer Kho COSTA MESA -- The city's Parks, Recreation Facilities and Parkways Commission on Thursday approved design plans for a skate park on Charle Street, despite a controversy brewing over the location. "I don't think Charle Street is a good location, but I don't want the process stopped because [the city] has been too long without a park," said parks commissioner Richard Mehren. "It was ill-conceived to move to this location, but that's where it's at."
