Potpourri

Here's just a little bit of what's going on here in the Newport-Mesa this week.

PLANNING COMMISSION STUDY SESSION TONIGHT
Tonight the Costa Mesa Planning Commission will hold a rare study session to discuss adjustments to the Mesa West Bluffs Urban Plan SP-05-08. I don't know all the details of this subject, but no action will be taken at the study session - just talk.


CITY COUNCIL MEETING TOMORROW

Tomorrow, Tuesday, the City Council has a full agenda. Among the items of interest are the annual review of the General Plan; a resolution supporting keeping the Equestrian Center at the Fairgrounds; a letter of support for appropriation of Economic Stimulus Program and stop signs at a couple intersections on the Eastside. I won't be surprised if public comments include concerns by residents about the current state of our municipal budget.

WAY TO GO, SONORA!
Sunday the Orange County Register did a front page feature on Orange County Public Schools. Included in that series of articles is a terrific piece on Sonora Elementary School. You can read it HERE. The parents, teachers and students of that school have demonstrated that a neighborhood doesn't have to be wealthy to produce excellent academic results. Kudos to all involved. Sonora School is just one more reason to be a proud resident of Costa Mesa.

JOHNNY "ACE" PALMER ON THE TUBE AT 8

Don't forget to tune in to KCOP, Channel 13 at 8 p.m. tonight to see my pal, Johnny "Ace" Palmer perform on Masters of Illusion. He's a World Champion Magician and lots of fun to watch perform.

NEW BLOG - SUNNY D

Yesterday my young friend, Claudio Gallegos, re-emerged from a year-long hiatus to launch his own new blog - Sunny D. Claudio was a mainstay on the Orange Juice! Blog before taking some time off. He's a young man full of passion and, although he and I disagree on many issues, I welcome him back to Orange County Blogdom.

OPERATION LOCAL NEWS

Finally, this evening former Daily Pilot publisher Tom Johnson and former Daily Pilot editor Bill Lobdell will meet with their board of advisors to discuss the progress they have made toward finding financial support for their plan to launch a brand new news source in the Newport Mesa. I'm looking forward to hearing how their plans are going and will report what I can, when I can, following the meeting.
