  • Community & Clubs: Announcing the annual Turkey, Eagle awards

    "Turkey" as defined by the fourth edition of the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language is: "A large North American bird that has brownish plumage and a bare, wattled head and neck and is widely domesticated for food." The slang...
  • Mailbag: City addresses long-standing problems

    Recent columns, commentary and article comments on the current outsourcing debate in Costa Mesa have left out one key detail — the fact that the city has long considered contracting out city services (outsourcing) a "…viable, realistic...
  • Teachers union calls for no-confidence vote in Hubbard

    The teachers union has called for a vote of no confidence in their embattled superintendent, who is facing criminal charges. A sampling of the Newport-Mesa Federation of Teachers unanimously made the no-confidence vote in Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard on...
  • 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...

  • Community Commentary: Union should be working with the city [Corrected]

    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,"...
  • Community Commentary: This City Council makes a charter risky

    I read with interest the Nov. 3 Daily Pilot article by Joseph Serna "Charter city request proposed." It was unsettling to learn that the stated reason Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer wanted to pursue a city charter, rather than remaining a general law...
