In the ninth grade, I made the decision to get a special permit to attend Glendale High School,rather than Hoover High. It's a decision I have never regretted. I had many happy times, and continue to have many happy memories of my years at Glendale High. I remember how exciting it was to finally be in high school, and meet so many new people that would become dear friends. Some of those friends are still close after almost 50 years! Growing up in the '40s and '50s was great!

The National Weather Service issued an advisory Friday on the possibility of minor tidal overflows along the coast. Newport officials were not alarmed by the notice. National Weather Service forecaster Robert Balfour said overflows were possible through today. He said high surf generated by a south swell could combine with an expected high tide to allow ocean water to rise above seawalls. Thursday night, the tide around Newport rose to 7 feet, 5 inches, said Rick Greaney of the Newport Beach general services department.

There's a recognizable house on Balboa Island that has been inhabited by a member of the Glassell family since the 1920s. As a child, Andrew W. Glassell spent summers playing in the sand just yards from the beachfront property. Brick steps lead to the one-story house -- one of the only remaining single-level complexes on the block. Twenty years ago, Glassell made the Balboa Island home his full-time residence. He died there of natural causes Aug. 16. He was 88. Born in Los Angeles, Glassell lived much of his life in La Canada.

Snap more photos at city's traffic lights Yes, I think Costa Mesa should install more cameras to snap pictures of drivers running red lights. Too many people are driving extremely fast, with reckless lane-changing and tailgating. Give them tickets, fine them and take away the licenses of repeat offenders. HALINA GROOTHUIS Balboa Island Fix Newport-Mesa schools properly Clearly Measure A was not enough. All anyone has to do is take a quick drive around Newport-Mesa and look at the schools.

While I never knew Madam Modjeska during her lifetime, she and I had certain contracts of which she was completely unaware but which give me a certain feeling of closeness to her. In addition to her home in the canyon that bears her name, the madam had a home in Balboa, specifically on Bay Island. For the uninformed, Bay Island is a small island in the bay reached only by a wooden bridge from Balboa. Now, before the gung ho boys dredged Balboa Bay and renamed it Newport Harbor so that the multimillionaires could moor their multimillion-dollar yachts here, what is now the bay was then a mudflat, which started at Bay Island and continued to the harbor mouth, with a canal dredged by Joe Beek so that his ferry could travel from Balboa Peninsula to Balboa Island.

Restaurateurs who have taken part at the Taste of Newport in past years said that what you get depends on when you go. Over three days of eating, the mood at the weekend food festival tends to morph from a party scene into a more family-friendly event. "I've been doing this for 13 years, and it's sort of like you're at a nightclub," said Joe Moreno, owner of Ciao, a Balboa Island restaurant expected to make an appearance at this year's event. Moreno was describing Taste of Newport's atmosphere on Friday and Saturday nights.

Cindy Trane Christeson "We are all strings in the concert of His joy." -- Jacob Boehme "I'm so happy to know that not all Americans are gangsters," my friend Tertia said to me with a smile. We both laughed. Tertia and I were walking along the beach and talking about her impressions of America and Americans. Tertia, originally from South Africa, lives with her husband, Hani, and their four children in Cairo, Egypt. Hani has been here before, and knew his wife would love exploring our country.

I will be as brief and to the point as possible on the proposed new Newport Beach civic center complex. 1. The cost: At $643 per square foot, it is about two times the per-square-foot cost of what both Mission Viejo in 2002 and Rancho Santa Margarita in 2004 spent on their city hall complexes. That is not a Taj Mahal, but is it justified? 2. Financing to justify risk: The financing meeting (which I attended about two weeks ago) with the City Council had a finance manager announcing that with the certificates of participation financing the city has chosen, if a tsunami comes through and makes the facilities unusable, the city can just walk away from the lease with no more payments.

El Toro would help during the Big One New Orleans residents knew the Big One -- a Category 4 or 5 hurricane -- could flood and destroy their city. Yet, when Katrina hit, they were not prepared. Orange County residents live with the threat of the Big One too. Only our fear is an 8 or bigger earthquake ripping open the earth. Are we fully prepared? One area of concern is our lack of airport runways for life-saving purposes. John Wayne, Long Beach, Los Alamitos and Fullerton airports are on soil subject to liquefaction during a major earthquake.

Local homeowners can again be glad they chose to settle in Newport-Mesa. A new round of statistics showed home prices rose yet again in most of the area. The figures, which tracked August home and condo prices, were released Monday by DataQuick Information Systems, a La Jolla-based company that tracks real estate prices. Compared with August of last year, the only neighborhoods where home prices dipped was in the ZIP Code that includes Newport Heights and West Newport.

It's time to say farewell to the art festival season, which I might add was my favorite to date. The festivals became my home away from home. I managed to make it to the Sawdust on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to soak in as much of the art, artists and entertainment as possible before the lights went out for the summer. It was packed all three days and nights with visitors and artists dancing to Lisa Haley & The Zydekatz, World Anthem and Missiles of October.
