  • Corona del Mar Today: Egypt during a coup? No problem, couple says

    A Corona del Mar couple's 10th church visit to Egypt in the past dozen years put them in the center of a storm now being called the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. But Monica Moore and Dave Fish said they never feared for their safety as they watched events...
  • Friends of the Library: Even when Costa Mesa was farms, they still needed books

    Those of you who know me know that I'm mainly involved with two things in Costa Mesa: the libraries and the city's history. Some of you may also know that what is now Costa Mesa started out as three settlements: Harper, Fairview and Paularino. Paularino...
  • The Coastal Gardener: Invite a couple to share your garden

    You will usually hear them before you see them. House wrens are small birds, but they are a great addition to almost any garden. I'm standing in my garden watching a tiny brownish bird streak from the orange tree to the fence top. Once there it pauses,...
  • Mailbag: Planned Parenthood's services are vital

    I was very upset to read the letter from Peggy Normandin, "Mailbag: Clergy wrong about Planned Parenthood" (April 5). There are serious inaccuracies in this letter about Planned Parenthood that I would like to correct. First, Planned Parenthood is not-...
  • Community Commentary: Pothole or police not a real ultimatum

    I keep hearing this false choice being offered around Costa Mesa. Which do you want, potholes or police officers? Repairing Costa Mesa's neglected infrastructure, which means a whole lot more than fixing potholes, and keeping the city safe aren't...

    Go beyond candy and flowers
    With Valentine's Day on a Monday this year, many couples are making more creative plans to celebrate. Restaurants are offering weekend-long deals, and many are offering special incentives like gift cards for Feb. 14 diners to entice people to dine out...
  • Community Commentary: Setting the record straight this time

    File this under no good deed goes unpunished. Last month, before new Costa Mesa CEO Tom Hatch moved into his prosaic corner office on City Hall's fifth floor, a volunteer work crew gave up their Sunday to do a little spring-cleaning. After a decade of...
  • Irvine Co. drops 75 jobs

    The Irvine Co. has eliminated about 75 positions through a combination of layoffs and the closing of open positions, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Monday. The layoffs were mainly in the corporate administration and included areas...
  • High-profile real estate agent files for bankruptcy

    When John McMonigle posted a question on his Facebook page about how people would be spending the weekend in Orange County, he mostly got responses like going to the beach or attending children's sporting events. But someone posted this reply, which was...
  • Remember the 1970 Sailors

    Remember the 1970 Sailors
    Ernie Johnson used many motivational speeches when he coached the Newport Harbor High football team in 1970. Motivation was sorely needed. There hadn't been anything to really cheer about for 28 years. One of the speeches that seemed to stick out for...
  • Corona del Mar Today: Original paramedics reminisce at NBFD luncheon

    In 1975, Newport Beach, along with most other cities in the nation, didn't have paramedics. A study had shown that people were dying on the streets who would have survived on a battlefield in Vietnam. Firefighters had first aid training, but that could...
  • Lobdell: Boat adds character to neighborhood

    Editor's note: This corrects the spelling of Julie Karges' last name. I once had a neighbor who made a living as a tree trimmer. And every so often, he would dig up an unwanted but valuable tree — usually some kind of palm — and plant it...
