  • Harman blasts Gov. Brown over parks bill veto

    State Sen. Tom Harman (R-Costa Mesa) this week blamed partisanship on Gov. Jerry Brown's choice to veto one of his bills that could let private companies operate cash-strapped state parks. The state budget crisis has forced the state to temporarily close...
  • Cassity: Charter would give us more control

    On the heels of my most recent column, which shined a Klieg light on Sacramento's wretched excesses of late, I've been looking around for ways to continue beating that figurative drum to the potential benefit of our citizenry. Regardless of one's...
  • Mansoor: 'Intellectually disabled' is a better term

    A bill proposed by Assemblyman Allan Mansoor (R-Costa Mesa) that would change the term "mentally retarded" to "intellectually disabled" in state codes is headed to the governor's desk for approval. Assembly Bill 2370, or the "Shriver R-Word Act," would...

    We run 'a different offense' in Costa Mesa
    Third in a series about Costa Mesa's political battle. * For him, local politics is like the Cold War. Costa Mesa City Councilman Steve Mensinger equates the City Council with the Reagan administration and the public employee associations with the USSR....
  • Mailbag: Stop stealing campaign signs

    Stealing signs and banners is becoming a very popular activity during elections. These signs are not free; they have cost and value. All these candidates work very hard to expose their names to the public. Signs and banners are very important tools. To...
  • Whitehead: Parks Dept. even worse than I thought

    Ahoy! In last week's column, I commented on how the California Department of Boating and Waterways (Cal Boating) becoming a division of the Department of Parks and Recreation was simply a money grab for Cal Boating's dedicated funds. The parks department...
  • Commentary: Timber tax will drive up costs for all of us

    In Sacramento, bad ideas never die. In the run-up to the budget vote in June, many Capitol watchers breathed a small sigh of relief when a new 1% tax on wood products miraculously vanished from the list of budget bills awaiting legislative votes....
  • Cassity: Capitol mismanages all it touches

    I'd like to know if the majority of the politicians we elect to go to Sacramento and fix things are incompetent or just addled when we vote them in. Or is there something in the air up there that makes them act that way once they arrive? Since Gov. Gray...
  • Apodaca: Keeping our educational promises to our children

    Filling out school registration forms isn't the most scintillating activity — there were 31 separate items to check off my son's list — so it's understandable if parents' eyes tend to glaze over while completing the task. Is so, they might...
  • Apodaca: New cut-off dates complicate kindergarten

    Kindergarten hasn't always been complicated. I still remember my first day, when Miss Floor told us that we were going to learn to read, and pointed to "the Big Red Book" at the far end of the classroom. I was excited, but I had misheard my soft-...
  • Apodaca: Education solutions rely on funds

    Administrators at some Newport-Mesa schools that fail to meet federal standards have come up with some compelling ideas to try to turn things around. There's just one problem: They all cost money. Last week, the school board voted to allocate $1.1...
  • Mailbag: Disneyland dress code distress is making Mickey 'ashamed'

    Imane Boudlal was given compromises and different positions with Disneyland where she could wear what she wanted ("OC Now: Muslim worker taken off Disney's schedule," Aug. 25). Instead, she refused and did so very visibly in front of her entourage...
