As fires burned in northern Los Angeles County two weeks ago, members of the Newport Beach and Costa Mesa fire departments were there battling the blazes with their fellow firefighters. That might seem a bit far from home, but the fire departments' efforts could pay off if things get bad in their backyards. The firefighting work was part of a statewide agreement among fire agencies to help one another in times of need. It's an agreement that should help us all sleep a little easier, knowing we're not only in the capable hands of our local firefighters but also that they've got back-up if need be. The fires in Topanga and Burbank were just the latest reminder that we never know when a disaster may strike that requires us to call for extra help.

NEWPORT BEACH -- Last season, when the Corona del Mar High boys cross country team faced Laguna Beach, CdM lost by one point. This year, the Sea Kings got their revenge with a 24-33 victory Wednesday at Bonita Creek Park. "This was a sweet victory," said CdM Coach Bill Sumner. "It's good to see the guys are coming around. They look good. We're right where we're supposed to be right now." Junior Tim Scott, for the first time in his CdM career, finished first for the Sea Kings (5-0)

In reading the editorial on Greenlight ll in Sunday's Daily Pilot, I could not help but notice you left out the two most important issues regarding the initiative. They have to deal with increased traffic congestion and the effect on residents' quality of life. In the general plan update, the city has taken outlying traffic credits and applied them to high density areas of Newport Beach, such as Mariner's Mile and Newport Center. These reallocated credits from lower traffic areas of the city claim to actually reduce traffic with proposed new high density development and will supposedly make the quality of life and enjoyment of Newport Beach that much better.

The local coastal plan process used by the city of Newport Beach could have been greatly improved, and this may have sped up the process. The city agreed to a timetable for the plan because it needed a special law sponsored by then-state Sen. Ross Johnson that allowed Newport Coast to be annexed by Newport Beach but still stay under Orange County rules so it could keep the land-use plan that covered Newport Coast prior to annexation. The city unfortunately had missed its obligations to the Coastal Commission prior to the annexation and needed this special law. Newport Beach has had a very good process for Vision 2025 and the update of the general plan, but the local coastal plan was excluded from that process although it has many parallel issues, including land use and completing the bicycle trail along the beach from 36th Street to the Santa Ana River, which is part of the California Coastal Trail.

Just like the rest of California, bits of Newport Beach could be falling into the ocean. Or maybe, as some people believe, the city's beaches are getting wider. To find out which is the case, the city has commissioned a new study, which will chart the movement of sand along the Newport coastline. The City Council on Tuesday agreed to hire Long Beach firm Moffatt & Nichol to conduct the study of West Newport, the Balboa Peninsula and Big Corona for $48,614.

A Newport Beach police sergeant wounded a pit bull after the dog reportedly charged toward him Sunday, police said. The sergeant was on patrol at about 3 a.m. near West Ocean Front and Summit Street when he saw a light that appeared to be emanating from a tent on a West Newport beach, Newport Beach Police Sgt. Bill Hartford said. The sergeant approached the tent to tell the occupant, Jose Lopez, 35, of Newport Beach, that camping is not allowed. As he walked toward the tent, the sergeant noticed an unleashed 80-pound pit bull near the tent, Hartford said.
