  • Lobdell: Owing love of journalism to Bell

    Here's my favorite Joe Bell story: As editor of the Pilot in the '90s, I arranged for Joe, our star columnist, to hit some tennis balls with Lindsay Davenport, an up-and-coming Newport Beach pro who would later earn the No. 1 ranking on the women's tour...

    LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors on Wednesday introduced e-mails they say showed a relationship between the superintendent of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District and a former subordinate of his when he worked as schools chief in Beverly Hills. The...
  • Lobdell: Watching the weather in Newport-Mesa

    The predicted high Friday is 72 degrees. But that's only one way to take the temperature in Newport-Mesa. Here are some other forecasts. Newport Beach's new Civic Center: early overcast giving way to sunny skies. A Catholic bishop once told me, "You...
  • Letters From The Editor: Wild West or the very model of civility?

    I once had an editor who said that we're in the business of answering readers' questions, not asking them. And while I generally heed that advice, I've spent some of this young year asking readers what they want from us. Reader input has led me to...
  • Voices organize against Costa Mesa layoff efforts

    COSTA MESA — A community campaign to halt potential layoffs to nearly half of the city's workforce shows no sign of slowing, as organized labor continues to pump money into an effort that spans TV, print and online media. "We're just making sure...
