Newport Beach beachfront homes offer a variety of scenery — sunrises and sunsets off the horizon, waves crashing and surfers catching air near The Wedge, and ... a man exposing himself? That’s what one homeowner was privy to Friday morning when he called police and said he saw a man exit his car in only his boxer shorts and a T-shirt and walk to the sand just off G Street in Newport Beach and start masturbating, police said. At about 9:30 a.m. Friday, a resident in the 1500 block of East Oceanfront Boulevard near G Street told police that a young man got out of his car, with his privates already out of his boxers in plain view for locals, and walked to the beach and started masturbating.

Fountain Valley has opted to stick with its own municipal fire service rather than partner with Huntington Beach or the county. The City Council directed staff in October to study the possibility of drafting a contract with the Orange County Fire Authority or merging partly or completely with the Huntington Beach Fire Department. Both were options to potentially save costs for the city. In the end, the city opted to maintain the status quo because it could better control costs in-house, City Manager Raymond Kromer said.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY — The first full week of the Sunset League baseball season is in the books and if the first three games are to serve as an indication of what still is to come, all signs point to a rip-roaring race. One thing is certain: through week No. 1, the Marina Vikings sit alone atop the Sunset standings. Marina rode the pitching of Austin Olivas and turned a seventh-inning miscue and sacrifice groundout into a pair of runs that spelled the difference in a 2-0 win at Fountain Valley.

Unlike many neighboring cities that have been scraping the bottom of the barrel to get by financially, Fountain Valley ended last year with a surplus and is on track to finish this year in the black as well. The city ended last year with a $1.3-million surplus, said Finance Director Sherri Holman. "It's a wonderful feeling," she said. "It gives you a sense of pride, and it's comforting. We did have to work hard to get there. " Fountain Valley did almost everything neighboring Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Newport Beach did in light of the economic downfall, except issue layoffs.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - It's too bad the Sunset League baseball season series between Fountain Valley and Huntington Beach has come to an end. Two days removed from a thriller at Fountain Valley, the Barons and Oilers staged another barnburner Friday and the encore proved as scintillating as Wednesday's finish. As was the case in their previous encounter, the Barons jumped out to a huge lead, then had to fend of an outstanding comeback by the host Oilers, to hold on for a 9-8 victory.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - The way things were going for Fountain Valley during the first half of Friday's nonleague football game against Downey, all signs pointed to a runaway victory for the Barons. The Barons bolted to an early lead and had a shutout going midway through the third quarter but somehow, had to fend off a late charge by the Vikings to come away with a 24-10 victory at Huntington Beach High's Sheue Field. Fountain Valley executed on offense in the opening half, but never really got things going in the second half.
