    Accused sign vandal wants a lawyer
    A former Costa Mesa city employee accused of vandalizing campaign signs won permission from an Orange County Superior Court judge Monday to delay his arraignment so that he can retain an attorney. Steven Charles White, 39, will be arraigned March 25....
  • Commentary: A good government is a small one

    Newport Beach and Costa Mesa balance their budgets. The United States government borrows nearly half of every dollar it spends. Why the difference? Granted, a healthy tax base helps. But it's not the whole story. Our less-affluent neighbor, Santa Ana,...
  • Reel Critics: A rugged and inspiring 'Trail'

    I was privileged to attend the private screening of a captivating new documentary. Catherine Jayasuriya is a very sharp local mom on a major mission. She is the driving force behind "Dusty's Trail," which is vying for a spot in the Newport Beach Film...

  • Commentary: Are we in ancient Rome or Costa Mesa?

    Once, when I was very young, I saw a scary political cartoon from the previous century depicting an arena in ancient Rome. Bodies litter the floor of the arena, and a bloodthirsty tiger bares long fangs as he mauls a slender woman dressed in a white robe....
  • One more step in the case for stairs

    One more step in the case for stairs
    A tiny corner of Costa Mesa has been ground zero in a long struggle over a mound of dirt. At the end of Canary Drive, an incline connects the paved suburbia to the occasionally wind-swept grassy bluff at the northeastern edge of Fairview Park. But for...
  • It's A Gray Area: We should be skeptical of our government

    People in our country mostly seem to possess an innate faith in government. Probably that has evolved because, while our governments generally are unnecessarily expensive, wasteful and intrusive, they have not been overtly corrupt like so many others...
  • Commentary: Counties should vote on San Onofre

    There is a simple and direct way to resolve the debate about San Onofre. The issue needs to be put to a vote in Orange and San Diego counties on the same day. The county counsels in the two regions need to draft identical ballot measures that simply...
  • City votes to store possessions left by homeless

    A city ordinance aimed at curtailing items being left outside by the homeless won preliminary approval Tuesday night. Officials voted 5-0 in favor of a law that would allow the city to collect and store items on behalf of the homeless in a central...
  • Mailbag: A charter review committee should be elected

    I read Jeff Arthur's March 13 commentary, "Costa Mesa pension burden falls on us all," and I already understood many of Mr. Arthur's initial comments on the underfunded pension obligation (UPO), but there were other comments in the second half of his...
