A stretch of Newport Bay that had been closed to swimmers and divers because of a sewage spill reopened Friday, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency, which monitors water quality. The ocean was closed earlier this week along a half-mile stretch of beach, from Bayside Drive Beach to Carnation Cove, after about 500 gallons of sewage spilled into the water, according to the agency. In order for it to reopen, water had to have acceptably low bacterial levels for two consecutive days.

Anne Fontaine at South Coast Plaza is all about the shirt for women. French designer and Brazilian native Anne Fontaine has turned the women's shirt into an art form, as well as an international business. To Fontaine, "The shirt is a piece of clothing itself, not just something to be worn with pants or a jacket." Self-taught in the fashion world, with a bent toward unusual fabrics, the designer spent her youth in Paris and, as a young women, met Ari Ziotkin, scion of a French shirt-making company in Brittany.

WESTMINSTER — After abandoning his windup last fall, Noah Prevel has found it much easier to avoid getting, well, wound up on the mound these days. And it was the lanky right-hander’s ability to retain his poise that helped Costa Mesa National Little League claim a 6-5 victory over Huntington Valley Wednesday to force a deciding game today in the 10- and 11-year-old division of the District 62 All-Star Tournament at Johnson School. Prevel mixed an often overpowering fastball with a almost comically slow curveball to record nine strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.

IRVINE — UC Irvine has shuffled, sweat and sacrificed all men's basket ball season to foster its reputation as a hard-nosed defensive team that grinds on seemingly every possession. But for a stretch of just more than five minutes, midway through the second half Wednesday night against Pacific, the Anteaters nearly saw that label washed away under an avalanche of three-point baskets. With the score tied, 38-38, UCI made four straight three-pointers and converted six of seven scoring possessions with field goals from beyond the arc to assume a 58-47 lead.

Soon after the repeal of Prohibition, a liquor store opened on Balboa. It was on the oceanfront in the space previously occupied by Dirty George and his hamburger stand. For us dedicated beachgoers, this was a great improvement. When Dirty George left, he took with him all his flies, which had become something of a problem for us. The beach was quite narrow in those days, and the only way you could get away from Dirty George's flies was to get in the water, and there is only so long you can stay in the water without getting pneumonia.

COSTA MESA — Flashes and glimpses of basketball excellence have become patches and stretches during the Vanguard men’s team’s six-game winning streak that included an 82-67 nonconference triumph over NCAA Division II visitor Mesa State of Colorado Wednesday night at The Pit. If this keeps up, it might be no time at all before Coach Fred Litzenberger’s Lions (8-2) are bullying opponents in 20-minute blocks. “We had a great second half,” Litzenberger said after Vanguard needed just more than eight minutes after the break to turn a 36-31 halftime advantage into a 58-38 bulge.

Tony Altobelli I always find it rather amusing when people find out what I do for a living and ask me, "Boy, it must be nice to be able to go to all the big sporting events for free all the time." My response is always the same. "Oh yeah. All the CIF, Orange Coast College and Vanguard University athletics I can handle in one lifetime. Care for my autograph?" Well finally, after nearly two years of loyal Daily Pilot service, I finally got to live the good life for four glorious days.

The Vanguard University baseball team that had won 13 of its previous 17 games, climbed to the No. 14 national ranking, and landed in second place in the Golden State Athletic Conference, was largely missing in action on Wednesday. Coach Rob Pegg's Lions, who are two games behind San Diego Christian heading into a three-game road series with the No. 6-ranked Hawks beginning Friday, were hardly themselves in a 7-3 nonconference loss to the Cougars. Vanguard (26-14) ranks No. 2 in the GSAC in fielding (.974)

Newport Beach council members directed staff Tuesday to take steps to reclassify a short stretch of Tustin Avenue in order to lower the speed limit by 5 mph. Members also agreed to explore with the community additional measures to slow traffic, which neighbors called a danger to pedestrians. Two stop signs bookend the quarter-mile stretch of roadway between Santiago Drive and 23rd street, but drivers still commonly exceed the 30 mph speed limit, residents told the council. Nearby homeowners pleaded with council members to address the public-safety issue they and their children faced before it was too late.

The Newport Beach City Council, in response to at least one resident's concerns, will discuss Tuesday night the speed limit on a quarter-mile stretch of Tustin Avenue. Staff reviewed the speed limit on Tustin between Santiago Drive and 23rd Street, about a block west of the Back Bay, and recommends the 30 mph limit remain. Resident Todd Macfarland expressed concern in September that the narrow road had no sidewalks or street lights, putting walkers and runners at risk - especially since cars often exceed the speed limit in that area.

ORANGE — The Orange County Transportation Authority on Monday approved new lanes for a portion of the 405 Freeway, a decision that scrapped a hotly contested toll road option that area cities have fought for months. The estimated $1.25-billion project, known as Alternative 1, was one of three proposals to widen a nearly 12-mile stretch of the 405 between the 605 Freeway interchange in Seal Beach and Euclid Street in Fountain Valley. It calls for adding one general-purpose lane in each direction in an attempt to alleviate congestion.

Costa Mesa residents and officials met Thursday night to discuss conceptual plans for the future of West 19th Street in an effort to beautify the thoroughfare and slow traffic. The 1.5-mile portion of 19th - between Newport Boulevard and the western edge of the city limits near Marina View Park - is among the city's most diverse. What abuts the street runs the gamut of possibilities: businesses, strip malls, the Vista Center, The Triangle, restaurants, bars, single-family homes, apartment complexes, the Tower on 19th, the Costa Mesa Senior Center, the Costa Mesa Sanitary District headquarters and a California Department of Motor Vehicles office.

Ahoy! The summer sailboat races are starting to wind down as Labor Day approaches. Labor Day weekend typically signals the end of the summer boating season for our local harbors' sailing programs and for boating in general across the nation. Likewise, in our local mountains, Labor Day weekend is the finale for the sailing races on Lake Arrowhead, which sail out of the Lake Arrowhead Yacht Club. It is amazing that a vast number of the sailors are active in sailing and yacht clubs located in Orange County's three harbors, comprising Dana Point Harbor, Newport Harbor and Huntington Harbour.

Kevin Rakestraw said he has seen the photo on Twitter. The photo isn't of the 7-foot center from Newport Harbor High. The photo just has his name written inside a large pizza box, with the words "Newport Sucks" in big letters and his last name in smaller letters just below. A player from the Edison boys' basketball team posted the photo on his Twitter account. The night before a game against Newport Harbor in late January, the tweet read "Team Dinner #rakestraw" followed by a link to the photo.
