It's one of those events that leaves you hungry for more. But at the same time, the Taste of Newport never disappoints. The 17th annual event, which took place last weekend, was once again a great success, drawing in the neighborhood of 65,000 people during its Friday-through-Sunday run. Probably a bit of the success can be attributed to the great musical acts the event always seems to round up. This year's headliners...

Restaurateurs who have taken part at the Taste of Newport in past years said that what you get depends on when you go. Over three days of eating, the mood at the weekend food festival tends to morph from a party scene into a more family-friendly event. "I've been doing this for 13 years, and it's sort of like you're at a nightclub," said Joe Moreno, owner of Ciao, a Balboa Island restaurant expected to make an appearance at this year's event. Moreno was describing Taste of Newport's atmosphere on Friday and Saturday nights.

WESTMINSTER - Marina High battled back from a seven-point halftime deficit, then withstood one final assault in the waning seconds by the Newport Harbor Sailors Thursday night to earn a 21-21 tie at Westminster High's Bill Boswell Field. It was only fitting that the Vikings (1-0-1) and Sailors (1-0-) should end their nonleague tussle in a deadlock, as both teams were guilty of not only some big penalties, but big mistakes, as well. 'It wasn't pretty, but both teams fought hard,' Marina Coach Mark Rehling said.

A group of Huntington Beach State Beach junior lifeguards traded their trunks for protective eye goggles and ear plugs for a tour this month of the AES power plant across the street from where they usually meet on the beach. Every summer, the plant hosts tours for the junior guards, and two more groups will visit the plant in August. The group of more than 30 kids were led by Huntington Beach resident James Tone, who has worked as an electrician at the plant since 1967 and always jumps at the opportunity to teach kids about the plant's operation.

Anyone who has been to La Cave restaurant knows that one of its charms is its dimly lit, basement setting, the ambience of which is unparalleled in Newport-Mesa. But who knew that another benefit to the underground locale would be its sound-dampening qualities? La Cave is at the top of the list of places that feature karaoke -- that never-ending phenomena in which people get up on stage and sing, good voice or not -- in Newport-Mesa. But at La Cave, the decibels are cranked up a notch now that it has a band, Cover Me Badd, playing instead of the typical karaoke machine.

As soon as she held up the tiny basketball, Vikki Brown knew she had gotten through. For the last hour, Brown and her group had gone through a bucket of toys, trying to find one that would get a positive reaction from the 3-year-old seated on the carpet. On the surface, it may have looked like play, but underneath, it was serious work: The boy in front of them was autistic, and their assignment was to find a favorite toy so they could control his behavior.

Fourteen years ago, a group of movie lovers banded together to organize the first Newport Beach Film Festival. For the opening-night attraction at Fashion Island, they chose "Sunset Blvd.," the 1950 Billy Wilder drama whose most famous moment features a faded Hollywood actress snapping, "I am big. It's the pictures that got small!" As co-founder Todd Quartararo fretted outside the Edwards Big Newport 6 theater before showtime, though, he was more concerned about the size of the crowd than the size of the pictures.

In the Jan. 16 Huntington Beach Independent, Assembly candidate Emanuel Patrascu writes that it was Keith Curry and his fellow members on the Newport Beach City Council who brought the fire rings issue to the Air Quality Management District. This is false. Councilman Curry, the Newport Beach council and the city never initiated any request for regulation or rule making by the AQMD. If Patrascu has any evidence to the contrary, he should present it. If not, he should immediately apologize to Curry, the council and the voters of the 74th Assembly District for these false and reckless charges.

ANAHEIM — They have been playing football at Huntington Beach High for nearly a century. From here on out, the 2013 Oilers will go down in school history as the first to win a major CIF Southern Section football championship.
