Marisa O'Neil Three sisters who graduate from Newport Harbor High School today are all approaching the ceremony in their own distinct ways. "I'll probably cry," 18-year-old Kerissa Peters said with a nervous laugh. "I'll probably throw up," her twin, Jessica, worried. "I'm ready to graduate today," their 16-year-old sister Jacqueline Schardt said confidently. While twins graduating in the same class is a given, having a younger sister joining them in caps and gowns doesn't happen every day. But Jacqueline skipped eighth grade, setting up the unusual -- if sometimes difficult -- situation.

Jimmy Stroup For some, the simplest gifts are the most valuable. For Amy Stahovich and her staff at Shear Attitude in Newport Beach, giving those gifts in the form of free haircuts, makeovers and skin treatments for people in difficult situations is all part of a day's work. Stahovich, who opened her full-service salon almost two years ago, has donated her time to serve various charities since learning the hairstyling craft. She views her service to others as a simple repayment of fortunes she's received.

Deirdre Newman Lillian Contreras remembers how she felt when she became intimately involved with her boyfriend at age 14. "We weren't using protection," said Contreras, who is now 20. "Personally, for me, I was in love. I didn't care. I felt that [getting pregnant] could never happen to me." Her parents had never discussed sex with her at home and she only remembered a little bit of the sex education she received in junior high, she said. She ended up getting pregnant and gave birth to son, Christian Santiesteban, at age 15. Her family was supportive.

STEVE SMITH That was a close one. For a while there, with the Newport Beach area calmed somewhat by the departure of Dennis Rodman from his beach party house, there was speculation as to who was going to take his place as the king of encounters with Orange County law enforcement. Fortunately, young Gregory Haidl has stepped up to the plate. In case you missed it, Haidl, 19, awaiting retrial on charges of raping an unconscious minor girl, was arrested on Thursday and accused of having sex with a different minor girl.

There is some kind of irony in coming home full of the pride and perspective and inspiration New York City provides these days to find that the biggest story to hit the Pilot while I was gone was the agony of Newport Harbor High School cheerleaders who didn't make the squad and whose parents were threatening the system that stiffed them. Is it possible that when our leaders were urging us to return to normalcy after the events of Sept. 11 this is what they had in mind?

The mother of the 15-year-old girl shot last month outside a home in Costa Mesa’s Shalimar neighborhood said the attack has turned her family’s situation from bad to worse — so much, in fact, that they are now asking the public for help. Denise, the victim’s mother, who asked that her family’s last name not be revealed for safety reasons, said the family needs money for the most basic of necessities including food, gas and her daughter’s pain medication, which isn’t covered by insurance.
