It's one of those events that leaves you hungry for more. But at the same time, the Taste of Newport never disappoints. The 17th annual event, which took place last weekend, was once again a great success, drawing in the neighborhood of 65,000 people during its Friday-through-Sunday run. Probably a bit of the success can be attributed to the great musical acts the event always seems to round up. This year's headliners...

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.

Anyone who has been to La Cave restaurant knows that one of its charms is its dimly lit, basement setting, the ambience of which is unparalleled in Newport-Mesa. But who knew that another benefit to the underground locale would be its sound-dampening qualities? La Cave is at the top of the list of places that feature karaoke -- that never-ending phenomena in which people get up on stage and sing, good voice or not -- in Newport-Mesa. But at La Cave, the decibels are cranked up a notch now that it has a band, Cover Me Badd, playing instead of the typical karaoke machine.

As soon as she held up the tiny basketball, Vikki Brown knew she had gotten through. For the last hour, Brown and her group had gone through a bucket of toys, trying to find one that would get a positive reaction from the 3-year-old seated on the carpet. On the surface, it may have looked like play, but underneath, it was serious work: The boy in front of them was autistic, and their assignment was to find a favorite toy so they could control his behavior.

To hear friends, family and former colleagues describe former Newport-Mesa Unified School District Superintendent John Nicoll, he almost seems to have been two distinct men. Nicoll died Sept. 10 at age 83. With a tenure that stretched from 1971 to 1993, he was the district's longest-serving superintendent. At a service Saturday at Newport Beach's Pacific View Memorial Park, some recalled him as a dignified and driven man, whose first concern was giving students the best education possible.

Digestion is almost complete on what could be considered the appetizer of the high school football season. And, regardless of the outcome of either the season-opening game or a preseason scrimmage, Newport-Mesa coaches all share a hunger for the next course. Corona del Mar High and Sage Hill School will enter this week's action with the satisfaction of having already swallowed a victory. But neither Sea Kings Coach Dick Freeman, nor Lightning head man Tom Monarch are the least bit interested in pushing away from the preleague table to savor the early taste of success.

Billionaire developer Rick Caruso received a special permit from the city of Newport Beach on Friday to temporarily moor his 216-foot yacht in the harbor, city officials said. In mid-August, to the chagrin of several citizens, the Newport Beach Harbor Commission voted to allow two large yachts - including Caruso's - to moor for a set period of time near the west end of Lido Isle, the Daily Pilot reported . Neighbors voiced concerns over potential noise and safety problems, in addition to citing a lack of transparency in the decision-making process, but no City Council members called for the decision to be reconsidered.

Two Newport Beach residents hope to stop the arrival of two large yachts -- including one owned by Americana on Brand developer Rick Caruso -- slated to moor temporarily in the open harbor area in front of their homes next month. When the boat owners independently asked to anchor in the newly dredged waterfront, Newport Beach Harbor Commission members approved their requests as a welcome opportunity to try out a different use for the area on the west end of Lido Island. But residents fear this may be a first step toward the harbor changing for the worse, according to the Daily Pilot . "This is just a trial, they keep assuring us of that," said Pamela Whitesides, who has lived in a waterfront building for about 20 years.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - For the second consecutive season, the Flintridge Prep girls' tennis team ran into talented Newport Harbor in the second round of the playoffs. For the second straight postseason, the Rebels once again couldn't match up with a Sailors team that featured a dominant doubles lineup. In the end, Newport Harbor's doubles teams proved too difficult for Flintridge Prep to handle. “They have great doubles teams,” said Flintridge Prep Coach Ron Catano, who saw his team's season end Monday afternoon with a 10-8 loss against third-seeded Newport Harbor in a CIF Southern Section Division II second-round match at Scholl Canyon Tennis Center.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — For all of the success that the Flintridge Prep girls' tennis team enjoyed throughout the season, it's likely it never faced a quality squad that featured a lethal doubles lineup like the one Newport Harbor High possessed. "Their doubles teams are that good and that talented," Flintridge Prep Coach Ron Catano said Saturday after top-seeded Newport Harbor won all nine doubles sets en route to a 12-6 CIF Southern Section Division II second-round victory against Flintridge Prep at Scholl Canyon Tennis Center.

LA CRESCENTA — The California Supreme Court ruled 6 to 1 Monday that real estate owned by a Newport Beach parish is the property of its national church, which it broke away from in 2006 after a controversial ordination. The ruling from the state’s highest court in Sacramento sent shock waves to three other churches, including St. Luke’s of the Mountains Anglican Church on Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta, which had a stake in the matter. Writing for the majority, Justice Ming W. Chin ruled that “the general church, not the local church, owns the property in question.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — The schedule makers did the Glendale High girls’ tennis team little favor when it came to this year’s playoff bracket. On one hand, the Nitros were able to secure a home match in the Division II wild card round. On the other hand, they were pitted against Newport Harbor, which hails from Orange County, long considered a hotbed for successful tennis programs. “We didn’t get a great draw,” Glendale Coach Bob Davidson said.
