  • Commentary: State's high tax burden thwarts recovery

  • Governor pardons Newport Beach resident

    Gov. Jerry Brown this week pardoned a Newport Beach man for crimes committed in the 1970s and 1980s and praised him as an example of someone who can turn their life around with philanthropic work. Thomas George Pfleger, 61, received a pardon for three...
  • Newport lawyer to become a judge

    Gov. Jerry Brown this week announced the appointment of a Newport Beach woman to the Orange County Superior Court bench, according to a news release. Terri K. Flynn-Peister, 38, of Newport Beach previously worked as deputy chief assistant U.S....
  • 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....

  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Apodaca: We must preserve public education

    By many measures, 2011 was a momentous year. Osama bin Laden was finally tracked down and killed. The Arab Spring uprisings toppled ruthless regimes. The Eurozone's unity was sorely tested. The Occupy protest movement swept across America. Closer to...
  • Mailbag: H.B. residents don't want 19th Street bridge either

    I have been a resident of Huntington Beach for more than 30 years and am still fighting this 19th Street bridge. Why in the world are Supervisor John Moorlach and Huntington Beach Mayor Don Hansen still trying to force this unwanted bridge down the...
  • Apodaca: If Hubbard should leave, Reed is more than capable

    I'm going to go out on a limb — not a particularly long one — and predict that Jeffrey Hubbard won't be Newport-Mesa Unified School District's superintendent much longer. Of course, if Hubbard is convicted it would be a fait accomplis. He...
  • Group wants Ellis off Fair Board

    COSTA MESA — It seems all the dust hasn't settled from the state's failed attempt to sell the Orange County Fairgrounds and the Fair Board's effort to buy it in 2009. The Orange County Fair Preservation Society, a grass-roots group of residents and...
