On a recent weekend, my little family unit of three took a drive down Coast Highway. Traffic was light, the skies clear. We sailed past Huntington Harbour, Main Street, West Newport and toward our destination: Lido Isle. There?s a small waterfront playground on the island that is just perfect for little ones to play. We got out of the car and my 3-year-old daughter, Natalie, charged the swings, jungle gym and slides. Then it was off to the balance beam, with some hand-holding from Mom and Dad to keep her steady.

The Coastline Pilot's digital presence is constantly changing and improving, and we're excited to announce a new feature we hope will help our readers get the news they want faster and better. We're bringing back breaking news alerts, which will go out to subscribers via email. The alerts will quickly get out the basics of a breaking news story — such as a major car crash, fire or school lockdown — as soon as we become aware of it. We'll continue to update the story on our website as we get information, but the alerts will now be the first source of information.

One of the big perks of my job is the occasional opportunity to meet and interview people in the entertainment world that I've long admired. Among those with whom I've chatted are Mickey Rooney, Debbie Reynolds, Diane Keaton, Martin Milner and Mike Farrell, back when he trod the boards of the old Laguna Playhouse. But, as a writer, the chance to meet one's particular favorites in the field of literary craftsmanship is something special. I've had this experience on two occasions - interviewing Rod Serling and Dean Koontz for feature articles in the Daily Pilot, the Coastline Pilot's sister paper in Newport Beach.
