Newport Beach Little League hadn't seen numbers like this in its 22-year history. More children signed up to play in the league last spring than ever before. The numbers read: 1,026, up from 958 in 2004 and 822 in 2003, the year a trend began, according to Emery Molnar, the league's president who has been a board member for four years. Homes, many custom-built, began sprouting up in Newport Coast, a master-planned community developed by the Irvine Co. encompassing seven square miles, in 1990.

A youthful outlook on Newport Coast center My name is Jared Paul Eckenweiler. I am 9 years old and live in Newport Coast. I don't like this idea of building a community center in Newport Coast because the sports teams can't play at the fields. Of course the people overlooking the fields would prefer grass rather than a building because it is natural. Also, people like to play with their dogs there. Those dog owners will not be happy with the City Council.

Rising construction costs have pushed the price of a community center planned for Santa Ana Heights from $11.5 million to $17 million, but the cost hike hasn't dampened enthusiasm to build the facility. The 48,000-square-foot center will replace a much smaller YMCA facility at 2300 University Ave. YMCA officials will handle the details of construction and run programming at the new center, but the city of Newport Beach will own the building and the land.

If you fell ill last Sunday evening, there was a shortage of available nurses in the Newport-Mesa area. Costa Mesa's Brad Pantoskey -- managing partner of the First String, a local healthcare concern -- chartered a yacht in Newport Harbor and set sail for a dinner cruise with some 200 nurses aboard. "I'm in the healthcare business, and nurses deserve recognition," Pantoskey said. "I love nurses. Who doesn't?" The sail was billed as the Nurses' Tropical Breeze Ball and Luau and was held aboard the yacht Endless Dream.

Except for a few junior high school plays, the majority of actors in South Coast Repertory Summer Players' production of "The Phantom Tollbooth" haven't spent a wealth of time on stage. But it seems they have mastered one aspect of live performance already: the art of staying loose behind the scenes. During the downtime between weekend shows, some cast members belt out pop tunes while changing costumes. Will Peterson, a Newport Coast resident with animated facial expressions, added levity by standing just offstage and demonstrating to the other actors how to improve their smiles.

More than 30 youth and teen dancers locked arms and slithered across the stage, while singing a classic George Gershwin tune. Artistic director Jimmy Hippenstiel danced along with the summer students at the Musical Theatre Academy of Orange County's Summer on Broadway program. And he still managed to notice when a performer was out of step. "This is correct. This is incorrect. This is really incorrect," Hippenstiel said as he shuffled his feet and moved to the piano music.

Imagine this: Two brush fires -- one in Buck Gulley, the other in Newport Coast -- are tearing through Newport Beach. As the fires threaten to converge, 30-foot flames threaten homes and endanger thousands of lives. Inside a crowded room in the Newport Beach police station, the city's emergency operations center bustles with officials from every city department working together to maintain the safety of Newport residents. Wearing color-coded vests according to their department, officials coordinate evacuations and shelters where displaced people will be safe.

Pour everything into the filter, drain the liquid and see what sticks to the bottom. Turns out a familiar face, or better yet, grime or muck, still clogs the filter for youth sports in Newport-Mesa. I began this series with a few ideas in mind. No. 1 -- How does the population explosion in Newport Coast affect youth leagues in surrounding communities? No. 2 -- What role do coaches play in the development of young athletes? Hopefully questions were answered on both of these topics.
