    Here are the top 6 things we've learned from last week's local elections. No. 6: Incumbency wasn't all bad. Turns out a record 30 years wasn't enough for Newport-Mesa school board member Judy Franco. In fact, nearly 60% of voters chose to bring her back...
  • Lobdell: Leece is no traitor

    I don't buy that Wendy Leece — who practically bleeds red, white and blue elephants — is a traitor to the local Republican Party. The Costa Mesa councilwoman got sideways with GOP leaders last month for allegedly breaking a promise to get...
