Deborah Wilder Moseley is not the most talented actor in her family - or so she believes. Born to Lynna Joy Armour, who won an Atlas Award in 1956 for her performance in "The Moon is Blue," and William Moseley, who worked for NBC and produced the Sunday afternoon soap opera "Matinee Theater," Moseley grew up in a highly creative environment. It is no wonder, then, that by age 6 she had taken a page from her parents' book. Now 56, the Santa Ana resident has racked up three decades of experience making commercials and working on television and in film.

After a summer of pastel-colored fashions and sizzling-hot beach wear, Newport-Mesa students are getting ready to go back to school. While the early birds may have finished their shopping weeks ago, South Coast Plaza was bustling this weekend with parents and children shopping for the latest fall styles. To help some choose the right fashions, a back-to-school fashion show featuring clothes from Gymboree, Beach Works, Oilily and other stores was held twice on Sunday as part of the Festival of Children.

In response to “FAA to tweak takeoffs at JWA,” Feb. 27: The best way to reduce the noise footprint over Newport Beach would be to extend the runway at John Wayne Airport farther north and closer to the San Diego Freeway. The farther back that the air carriers start their southbound take-offs, the higher they will be when they fly over Newport Beach, and the lower their noise impact will be. Extending the runway to the north will also reduce the air pollution caused by taxiing delays, as the air carriers wait to cross the shorter runway, 19 Left, to get to the longer runway, 19 Right.

Male models wearing black V-neck T-shirts clutched electric-colored designer handbags as they strutted down the catwalk at the Newport Beach Marriott on Wednesday morning. What may appear to be the latest runway show for a high-end designer is actually the Newport Beach Police Department's way of encouraging residents to lock their doors and secure their valuables in an effort to reduce crime. The event at the Marriott was the department's way of introducing its new campaign, The Stolen Collection, which features black-and-white ads showing polished male models posing as thieves with stolen cell phones and handbags, in the style of a designer fashion advertisement.

Kendra Scott's jewelry empire began with wire-wrapped stones, a tea box and $500. Oh, and her 3-month-old Baby Bjorn-clad son, Cade, for company. In 2002, the Austin, Texas, resident dipped into her savings to convert her passion for fashion into a full-time business. Her decision, although decried by many, was aimed at digging her family out of a particularly deep financial pit. The risk paid off when every local boutique door she knocked on led to an order. Armed with a mini-collection of only about two dozen pieces, she kept her promise to her husband and doubled their starting costs.

Airlines canceled a handful of flights Monday and delays persist, as the nation's air travel system recovered from a blizzard on the East Coast. On Monday, Continental Airlines cancelled its 7:45 a.m. and 4 p.m. departures to Newark Liberty International Airport, along with three afternoon arrivals coming from Newark. Delta Airlines canceled its 11:55 a.m. arrival from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, and its 1:40 p.m. departure to JFK.

IRVINE — The U.S. Navy did not detect toxins beneath the former El Toro Marine Base's runways and progress is steadily being made on a plume of contamination beneath other sections of the former base, residents were told at last week's City Council meeting. The Navy plans to reevaluate its findings every five years, and if traces of trichloroethylene (TCE), a chemical solvent used on the base in the 1970s, are detected in new areas, the Navy will continue to clean it up, said Jim Callian, Navy Base Realignment and Closure environmental coordinator for El Toro.

It was a Tupperware party on steroids, with the mostly female guests sipping chocolate milk out of shot glasses. Fashion royalty took Newport Beach by storm Tuesday.
