Mathis Winkler NEWPORT BEACH -- For a while, city officials didn't know what, if anything, would become of Newport Beach's summer swim program this year.

Hirings and firings are common in the fickle world of the National Football League, so coaches' families are used to moving from one city to another at a moment's notice. "This was different," said Cathie Sheppard, whose husband, Mike, began this year as offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints.

As far as crises go, the Newport Beach water shortage of 1956 and 1957 won't top anyone's list. Still, for residents living in the area and for former City Manager Robert Shelton, it did take a coordinated effort to avert a major problem.
