Before his team's game against Long Beach Wilson High Tuesday night, Corona del Mar Coach Barry O'Dea joked about how Wilson was probably mad after losing to Newport Harbor. Indeed, the surprise trouncing the Newport Harbor boys water polo team administered last week got Long Beach Wilson attention. It's no wonder the defending CIF champion Bruins turned things up a notch in ensuing practices and came out Tuesday night on fire. Wilson took out its frustrations on Corona del Mar High, swimming to a 16-9 nonleague victory at the Belmont Plaza Pool in Long Beach.

The Corona del Mar High girls tennis team looked dominant coming into the season, and it still could be.

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. Shelton -- who worked for the city from 1956 to 1961 and later served on the City Council -- said that back then Newport Beach's population was about 17,000 during the winter, and double that during summer months.

Anyone who's anyone in Newport Beach has heard of the old Rendezvous Ballroom -- the place to be in the early- and mid-20th century. Most everyone in the city over the age of 40 remembers the fire that destroyed the popular hangout in 1966. Milt Meehan had a close view of the disaster. He was born in Orange, but his heart was always in Newport Beach. Meehan and his friends made the coastal city their destination nearly every weekend.
