No new cases of meningococcemia were reported to Orange County health officials on Wednesday, and one 18-year-old man who had contracted the rare disease improved so much that he was discharged from the hospital. A seventh-grade girl from Costa Mesa High School was showing signs of improvement, although she remained in critical condition in the pediatric intensive care unit at Children's Hospital of Orange County.

Matthew Emerson was a little bored last summer. So, when he saw an advertisement in the Costa Mesa High School newsletter looking for students interested in designing a Web site for the school, he designed a prototype. It took him three days. Michael Lawrence, the English teacher at Costa Mesa High School who placed the ad and oversees the Web site project, was impressed. He immediately made Matthew, 13, the lead designer on the Web site, which made its official debut Monday.

Costa Mesa has bought the farm. And at $7.1 million in cash, the 18 acres that the City Council voted to purchase from the Newport-Mesa Unified School District is the single most expensive thing the city has ever bought. The property, formerly a farm operated by Costa Mesa High School, was offered for sale by the school district in March to help pay for repairs to schools in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. The city was interested in buying it because residents have lobbied for more park space.

School district officials finally have a price range for sale of Costa Mesa High School's former farm. Now it is up to city officials to decide whether they can afford the $6.7-million to $8.3-million tab. Officials of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District decided in May to sell the 18 acres of land surrounding Costa Mesa High School to help pay for repairs at other schools in the district.

To save money and create better academic and sports programs, two trustees of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District are urging the board to look at merging the student populations of Costa Mesa High School and Estancia High School. "We are talking about creating one normal-sized high school," trustee James M. Ferryman said. "They are two of the smallest high schools in the county, with about 1,000 students each." No formal proposal has been put before school district officials.

Citing the need for more parks in the city, the City Council voted unanimously this week to begin negotiations with the Newport-Mesa Unified School District to buy 18 acres of land surrounding Costa Mesa High School. "There is a general feeling that it should not be sold to a private developer," Mayor Joe Erickson said, adding that, if the council should decide not to buy the property, the district could sell it to a real estate development company.

To promote interracial understanding at her school, student Simone Wiggins founded Costa Mesa High School's first African-American Studies Club, also the first organization of its type in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. Though only 2.3% of the student population at Costa Mesa High is African American, that is the largest concentration at a district high school. The group has sponsored several events, including readings of African poetry and an African dance show.
