  • Apodaca: District needs to discuss pooled funding

    A column I wrote earlier this month regarding the disparity in fundraising among Newport-Mesa public schools touched a nerve with many readers, so I thought it worth revisiting the topic ("How can public schools compete for donations?" March 4). I...

    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...
