Some campers learned a few new dance moves this week at a revamped summer camp for special-needs children in Costa Mesa.

No good deed goes unpunished, right? That clearly was the case Thursday in Newport Beach as 15 professionals ended up behind bars, with $1,000 or more bail staring them in their jail-hardened faces. They had been caught by police, some were handcuffed, and all were read their Miranda rights. Fortunately for them, their jail was at the Tommy Bahama Cafe and Emporium, and their bail was going to the Muscular Dystrophy Assn. And their Miranda rights told them they could call as many friends as possible to help raise the bail.

Newport Coast, Calif. That's not the first city that comes to mind when you think of a possible hometown for a USC running back. A title like that brings to mind legends, such as Reggie Bush, Charles White and Marcus Allen. The list is scattered with greats from all over the country. While the thought of a Newport Coast-bred USC running back seems ridiculous, Taylor Ross has other thoughts. He has the look of a Newport local, with the blond hair and blue eyes, but that look doesn't match his mental fortitude and style of play.

COSTA MESA — Taio Cruz' radio hit "Dynamite" set the rhythm to shake it. A small group of soon-to-be first-graders shook their stuff and a small plastic bottle filled with toilet paper and water as they made paper pulp. The shaking was just the first step to making paper — a process that includes using small screens to drain it and press it, and sponges to absorb any extra water. The science experiment was one of a series on paper and wood the kindergarten class had completed.
