Though seeing stars in their fully developed glory is always special, seeing them before the world fully recognized their gifts is also something very much worth doing. In Bruce Lee's case, that task has been made easy by the folks at Shout Factory who have come up with an impressive package fittingly called “Bruce Lee: The Legacy Collection.” This handsome box set includes such early martial arts classics as “The Big Boss” and “Fist of Fury” as well as a pair of Bruce Lee documentaries and lots of bonus material.

The Transportation Security Administration will add PreCheck expedited security screening Wednesday to a second terminal at John Wayne Airport (SNA). Passengers registered with the program will be able to use the faster lane from 5 to 7 a.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 6 to 8 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays, according to a TSA statement. Travelers registered with PreCheck proceed through airport screening more quickly because they don't have to remove their shoes or belts and can leave laptops in cases.

A student at Ramona High School in northeast San Diego County died Wednesday hours after being hit in the chest with a ball, officials said. The 16-year-old sophomore was playing over-the-line, a softball-like sport, during a P.E. class when he was struck by a line drive. He later collapsed and was taken to a local hospital, where he was declared dead. Principal Tony Newman said that counselors Thursday will be prepared to help students cope with the trauma of losing a classmate.

In addition to that famously steep takeoff from John Wayne Airport, passengers aboard some departing jets in Orange County might be asked to endure multiple turns as pilots take a zigzag course as they lift off over Newport Beach. The zigzag takeoff pattern - meant to reduce jet noise in the beach city - would be a first in the continental U.S. Over the decades, the city has fought and sued in an effort to tame noise from the commercial airport, and flights in and out of John Wayne are now some of the most strictly controlled in the country.

After nearly two years of closed-door negotiations, Newport Beach Mayor Keith Curry announced this week that the strict curfews governing John Wayne Airport's operations could remain in place through 2035 if a proposed settlement extension is approved. A cap on the number of passengers and flights that can pass through the airport would be allowed to rise starting in 2021. "This is a balanced approach that will follow the law and maintain the protection of our community," Curry said at a news conference in the Newport Beach Police Department auditorium.
