The hype will start from Day 1. And the best Corona del Mar High girls cross country team ever assembled under 22-year head man Bill Sumner is set to take the stage this season. State championship fever has begun. "This is the best team the county's ever seen," Sumner said. "If I get everybody to the starting line healthy, this is a very good team." The Sea Kings, already loaded with homegrown talent, including Annie St. Geme, the CIF State champion in the 1,600 meters, added another state champion to their roster over the summer.

While the physical hardship of practicing twice a day can promote cohesion among high school football teammates, first-year Costa Mesa High Coach Jay Johnson went a step further in the annual bonding ritual. Johnson, whose Mustangs kicked off preparation for the 2005 season Wednesday, spent the night with his players Wednesday and Thursday nights in the school gymnasium. It's a throwback to days of yore, when a handful of schools would have players spend the first week of practice, known formerly as Hell Week, at school.

Landmark Steakhouse is only seven weeks old, but the new restaurant's owners are aiming for an old-fashioned feel. Landmark opened July 1 in Corona del Mar. Remodeled over a period of six months before its doors opened, the restaurant has cream-colored walls, dark-brown molding, mirrors and maroon furnishings that evoke a traditional feel. "We wanted, basically, a classic American steakhouse," co-owner Mario Marovic said. Marovic is a second-generation restaurateur and one of three partners behind Landmark Steakhouse.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Daily Pilot has agreed to republish The Verdict, the ever-popular column written for many years by retired Corona Del Mar jurist and historian Robert Gardner, in exchange for donations to the Surfrider Foundation. This column was originally published March 26, 1994. I can recall the days when divorces were called divorces and not dissolutions. (Is a divorcee now a dissolutionee?) In those days, before one could secure even a default divorce, it was necessary to corroborate the testimony of the plaintiff.

Newport Beach resident Kathy Fallon, a mother of three highly successful soccer athletes in the Corona del Mar system, has nothing short of a full plate. With a full-time job as a real estate agent and a full-time job as a mother, wife and soccer mom, friends and family look to her in amazement. Fallon's daughters -- Vanessa, 18, Taylor, 16, and Scarlett, 12 -- have climbed their way to the top of the soccer world at the right fullback position and they owe it in part to their mom. The woman, who was a stay-at-home mom for 15 years, was deeply involved in her children's education as a PTA Vice President at Lincoln Elementary and decided hands-on parenting was the key to overall success.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Daily Pilot has agreed to republish The Verdict, the ever-popular column written for many years by retired Corona Del Mar jurist and historian Robert Gardner, in exchange for donations to the Surfrider Foundation. This column was originally published in March 1994. I have a suggestion for all those task forces that are trying to put together the so-called Clinton health plan. I think they should look into self help. And just to get them off to a running start, I have a few suggestions for them.

All 6,000 pounds of the green and bronze Centennial Time Clock hovered over the asphalt as workers readied the 24-foot clock tower to be lowered into its home at the future site of Centennial Plaza. A small audience drawn largely from the Corona del Mar Centennial Foundation's ranks looked on from a parking lot near the corner of East Coast Highway and Marguerite Avenue as a work crew under the supervision of contractor Paul Keohane strapped the clock tower to a crane, lifted it from a flatbed truck and turned the tower upright.

This column was originally published Feb. 26, 1994. As I have mentioned previously in these dispatches, one of my favorite characters in earlier Orange County times was C.C. Gavvy Cravath, city judge and justice of the peace of Laguna Beach.
