Through the sickly sweet fog of designer fragrances, past gleaming cosmetics counters, the giant, furry critter pads across the polished tile. The prim sales clerks don't even bat an eye.

Newport Beach has unfortunately been given a bad rap, so to speak. With all the "new money," high technology, increased development and, most recently, the "not in my back yard" philosophy, it is no wonder that, to many, we are a very superficial community.

In a unique agreement in Newport Beach, the city will replace the old island lights with more modern and energy-efficient ones and also put the utility wires underground, and the residents will pay the initial bill. "It's an interesting arrangement," said Public Works Director Benjamin J. Nolan.
