Mea Culpa & Dumping The Parks & Rec. Commission
As we head into another glorious weekend I have some housekeeping to do before turning you loose to gorge yourselves on chocolate-coated bacon and other culinary delights at the Orange County Fair. Besides, if the fairgrounds is sold to help Arnold balance the state budget, this year may be the last time the fair is held in Costa Mesa!
In an earlier post, HERE, I suggested that Planning Commissioner Colin McCarthy's offer of half his stipend to go to youth sports was a "shallow gesture". I also, in that post, indicated that the commissioners receive a stipend of $200 per meeting. Both comments were off the mark. A reader tried to set me straight with this comment:

Commissioners receive $400 a month, not $200 a month. Do you think $2400 a year is a shallow gesture? I disagree.
