Fountain Valley Mayor John Collins had a simple message when he gave his State of the City Address to the Orange County Assn. of Realtors. “The state of the city is strong, the city is stable,” Collins said.

A hard two-year budget coupled with a 10-year forecast budget ensures all of the city’s projects are covered, he said.

It was instead just about being ready to play the game. “It’s been a long week and we’re kind of tired,” Luth said after Marina (20-3, 6-0 in league)

The Fountain Valley School District board voted unanimously Thursday night to close Fred Moiola K-8 School, despite protests of parents and students who urged the district to spare the campus. The five-member board's regular meeting was well-attended but mostly subdued. Dozens from the Moiola community have gathered at earlier meetings to voice support for their school. Thursday, though, just three parents addressed the board before the members voted. Board President Judy Edwards called the decision "one of the toughest things" she has had to do in her years on the board.

Since its founding in 1940, the esteemed American Ballet Theatre has appeared in a total of 132 cities, 42 countries and all 50 states. And throughout its 72-year history, the New York-based company has commissioned works by all of the great choreographic minds of the 20th century: George Balanchine, Antony Tudor, Jerome Robbins, Agnes de Mille and Twyla Tharp, among others. Now, at the tender age of 18, Fountain Valley ballet dancer Jamie Kopit can call the ABT her home. Kopit began dancing at the age of four at Southland Ballet Academy in Fountain Valley, shortly after her oldest sister enrolled in classes there.
