Another Minute About The "Costa Mesa Minute"
One day in and I'm REALLY liking this Costa Mesa Minute link over there on the right side of this page! It actually worked for the second day in a row.
HOMELESS TASK FORCE WORKSHOP TOMORROW
For example, today dapper Dane Bora tells us about the Homeless Task Force workshop being held at the Police Department Emergency Operations Center (EOC) tomorrow, Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Now I don't have to write about that event, except to say that anyone seriously interested in what our city may end up doing about the homeless issue will probably find this community workshop a valuable resource.
BANNING RANCH THURSDAY
He also mentions the joint City Council, Planning Commission and Parks and Recreation Commission session planned for next Thursday, October 20th - also at the EOC from 4:30 -6:00 p.m. - in which major players in the Banning Ranch issue will make presentations. This is a HUGE issue for our city because of the impact ANY development will have on our Westside. It also resurrected the controversy about a bridge across the Santa Ana River at 19th Street. I'll write more about Banning Ranch later, but Dane's little blurb here today will get you thinking more about it right now. I suspect that EOC is going to be a very cozy place next Thursday afternoon.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I'm interested in what you think of this Costa Mesa Minute feature. Will you use it? Does it provide you with information you can use? Are you having any trouble viewing it? I ask that one because the first time I ran it this morning it buffered a couple times before completing the run. I checked it a second time and it ran straight through. I suspect it's a problem of my computer trying to do too many things at once - darn overachieving machine! Anyhow, let me know what you think.
Because we all deserve a little chuckle now and then, and, in light of Dane's mention of the Dog Agility Competition at the Dog Park at TeWinkle Park this weekend, I thought I'd leave you with something that will almost certainly brighten your day. My sweet and patient wife - a serious ballroom dancer - sent me this link of a Golden Retriever doing the Merengue. I challenge you to watch it and NOT smile. Have a great weekend.
