June Casagrande On the left side of the dais sit three engineers; to the right, four lawyers. In the middle sits a new mayor and a not-so-new vice mayor. Welcome to the new City Council, whose inauguration was performed with almost as much ceremony as the goodbyes for departing members. "It's an honor to be asked to do this job," Steve Bromberg said as he took the mayor's seat. "I promise I'll work hard and not disappoint you." Everybody's money was on Bromberg to be the new mayor.

June Casagrande Even before being sworn in as City Councilman, Dick Nichols has already exhibited a style of wading boldly into controversy. At the Nov. 12 council meeting, just as previously warring parties had found a harmonious compromise on the size of a Mormon temple steeple, Nichols rehashed the matter by saying he thought the steeple was too short. "Architecturally, it would have been prettier if it was 10 feet higher," Nichols said Tuesday, reaffirming his objection to lowering the steeple from about 100 to 90 feet.

Young Chang At the end of the charming, closely-knit spit of land known as Balboa Island, there is another tidbit of history -- Collin's Island. It belonged to a man named William S. Collins, a Newport resident who owned a hefty portion of the city in the early 1900s but is little remembered today except in association with some fun Hollywood stories. Collins, a land promoter and owner of Collins Commercial Company -- a boatyard -- eventually sold most of his property but kept Balboa Island.

Alicia Robinson A handful of local restaurants are hoping their patrons will think about the less fortunate when they make their menu choices. Several local restaurants are taking part in the donate-a-dish program, in which participating eateries pick an entree and give 10% of the proceeds from the sale of that dish to the Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter. The program was created by the shelter's fundraising group, the Friends of Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter, and is sponsored by the Newport Beach Restaurant Assn.

This week, I spent a lot of time shuttling Duffy electric boats to and from the shipyard for prospective buyers to complete their inspection process before they purchase a boat. While on the harbor, during these warm Indian summer days, I thought back to all the good times I have had while cruising the harbor. As a college student, I recalled all the Friday nights we found a place to park the boat in the Rhine Channel, started our night at Snug Harbor and worked our way down the channel to Woody's Wharf.
