  • Commentary: Union wants city to break the bank

    I was interested to read the latest fictional spin piece by Orange County Employees Assn. mouthpiece Jennifer Muir on Costa Mesa's financial situation ("Community Commentary: Don't believe City Hall's spin on finances," Oct. 22). Ms. Muir contends...
  • City Life: If a school fell on the Westside, would the school board notice?

    If I write a column that mentions Costa Mesa's City Council or the local employee union, I'm guaranteed an online response of at least eight fired-up readers. Most of the comments are emotional — and less than factual — but that is...
  • City Life: A mallet won't work on city budget now

    Costa Mesa's fiscal challenge is not a mole that just popped up out of the ground this year — or even last year. The problem developed over the last 10 or so years, during a time when the City Council could make no mistakes. Unlike Whac-a-Mole,...
  • Community Commentary: Union should be working with the city [Corrected]

    Several months ago, I wrote a piece about the Orange County Employees' Assn.'s fierce and unrelenting attack on our great city. At the time, I encouraged the union to become part of the solution and stop the petty bickering and name-calling. After all,...
  • Teachers union vote denounces Hubbard

    Teachers union vote denounces Hubbard
    COSTA MESA — The overwhelming majority of Newport-Mesa Unified teachers have no confidence in their embattled superintendent, according to a vote announced Thursday night by the teacher's union. Ballots sent out Oct. 20 to the teachers in the...
  • Community Commentary: Obama's jobs bill deserves a layoff

    Did you know that the so-called jobs bill adds the unemployed to the list of "protected classes" who can sue any employer for discrimination based on the applicant's perception that their unemployed status led to their not being hired? How crazy is that?...
  • City Life: Teachers are right to be mad

    Teachers are not supposed to protest. They're not supposed to complain or become frustrated or get upset in any way. And they are certainly not supposed to cast a vote of "no confidence" in the school superintendent ("Teachers union denounces Hubbard,"...
  • Commentary: Measure V only 'scary' to labor officials

    Re. "Vote out incumbents, oppose Measure V," Forum, Charles Mooney (Aug. 17): The misinformation campaign about the proposed Costa Mesa charter is well underway. Mr. Mooney's letter references no-bid contracts, one of a series of buzz words and phrases...
  • Commentary: Tactics from the union playbook stay the same

    The game has been rigged for years! Current public employees can typically retire at age 50 or 55 with as much as 90% of their pay and lifetime medical coverage after 30 years of service. Some have nothing to do. So while the rest of us are still working...
  • Mailbag: Stop attacking the labor unions

    Re. "Commentary: Tactics from the union playbook stay the same," (Aug. 29): An odd incident that may or may not have any connection whatsoever to any labor union is being hyped to promote an insidious antiunion agenda. Even if one were to accept,...
  • Harlan: Exploiting DUI call harms Costa Mesans

    Does anything more need to be said or written about the bizarre incident involving Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer and the 911 call alleging his erratic driving as he made his way home from Skosh Monahan's the evening of Aug. 22? Unfortunately,...
  • Cassity: Don't listen to 'enviro-wackos' about oil

    Gas prices, as this is written, are $4.69 for regular. In Northern California, it's as much as a buck more. If you own an SUV, a pickup or a large family sedan, this means more than $100 to fill up. Elections have consequences. This is just one of them....
