June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- A proposed luxury resort at Marinapark cleared its first, albeit minor, hurdle Thursday when a Planning Commission meeting drew tepid response to the project. As expected, commissioners approved a request by developer Stephen Sutherland to begin the process of seeking city approval to build a 147-room resort at the site of the Marinapark mobile home complex, which is adjacent to the American Legion post on Balboa Peninsula.

Deepa Bharath Fred Segwin had never seen so much fire in his entire career. Last week's battle with the blaze was not this Costa Mesa fire captain's first encounter with a wildfire. He's fought fires in Idyllwild, Anza and even the fiery scorcher in Laguna Beach 10 years ago. "But this one was like all those three fires rolled in one," said Segwin, who was part of the strike team that went from Costa Mesa to San Bernardino. It was like "being in a war zone," he said.

It would be an understatement to say that developer Stephen Sutherland has not done more than could be expected to win support for his plan for a hotel at Marinapark. Just this week, Sutherland submitted a proposal that calls for a 110 rooms, down significantly from the 156 originally included, and a ballroom of just 3,600 square feet, down from 7,600. And, finally, the plan includes three "view corridors" where the harbor is visible from the street.

The early days of football at Newport Harbor High began 71 years ago and found the early players from 1931-34 having to endure some intense challenges on a dirt practice field behind the main gym. The late Judd "The Bear" Sutherland said he remembered the practice field. "It was like concrete," he said. "It was covered with broken glass, rocks, nails and debris from construction work via the late 1920s and '30s." Sutherland, the '34 captain, said "it was a day of iron-man football with our small squads."

Don Cantrell Almost 72 years ago, a new high school named Newport Harbor opened its doors in Newport Heights and welcomed students who had been attending Santa Ana, Huntington Beach and Tustin high schools. The principal, Sidney Davidson, who had been serving on the staff at Huntington Beach High, expected a few hundred students. Enrollment reached about 500 by 1942. Davidson, a one-time prep basketball coach at Morgan Hill in California, chose to first hire an athletic director named Ralph Reed, who had served twice as principal at two high schools in Ohio.

Alicia Robinson It's taken more than four years to advance a plan for a luxury hotel at Marinapark, and early voting suggested it would be held up longer by the failure of Measure L, the controversial amendment to the city's general plan that would allow development of a waterfront resort on the city-owned Marinapark property. At press time, early returns showed 65.4% of Newport Beach voters opposed Measure L and 34.6% supported it. "We're obviously pleased with the results so far," said Tom Billings of Protect Our Parks, a citizens group that led the opposition to Measure L. "We've had this great grass-roots campaign.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- Plans for a controversial luxury resort at Marinapark will be filed with the city on Monday in a second attempt to please American Legion members now on the land, the developer said. But that hurdle is just the first of several daunting challenges facing Stephen Sutherland Co. as it pushes for a 156-room luxury resort to be built at the Balboa Peninsula site. When and if plans pass muster with the Legionnaires, then the city must rule on the proposal.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- Revised plans for a 156-room luxury resort at Marinapark were filed at City Hall this week as opponents of the project gear up for a fight. The plans, updated to include more specific information about aspects such as building heights and parking, move the project one step closer to completion. As city planners begin to review the plans, a City Council subcommittee will begin lease negotiations for the American Legion hall now on the site.

The city's present supply of recreational and environmental open space land is now under assault by three separate projects. Two are worthy uses of small amounts of open space land -- the St. Mark's Church and senior housing in Bayview Landing. We support them. However, the line has to be drawn and quickly to protect the remainder of our dwindling supply. The proposed Regent Hotel takes our precious recreational and environmental open space land for a project that, for the reasons cited below, is questionable.

A volleyball defender’s greatest asset can be balance: the ability to position oneself in an active state of neutrality, ready to pounce in either direction according to the whims of a well-place spike or, just as often, an unanticipated deflection off a blocker or a fellow passer. For UC Irvine senior libero Devon Sutherland, however, the balancing act often extends to the consistent challenge of finding even footing between the chip on one shoulder and the perceived weight of the world on the other.

IRVINE — Offensively, the UC Irvine women’s volleyball team operates as a democracy, consistently sharing power for the benefit of all. Defensively, however, the Anteaters have come to resemble a monarchy and junior Devon Sutherland is the queen. The 5-foot-6 libero darted, dived, sprinted, slid and sprawled all over the court Thursday to post a career-high 30 digs and help UCI earn a 30-21, 30-21, 25-30, 30-27 victory over visiting UC Riverside in the Big West Conference opener at Crawford Court.

Sutherland is to be thanked for his 12 years of service to the city through his membership on the Economic Development Committee. He devoted many hours supporting the efforts of the committee to improve the economic climate within the city.
