En"light"enment And Replays

This afternoon, at 4:30 p.m., the City of Costa Mesa will dedicate the new, $520,000 improvements at Davis Field, adjacent to Lions Park.

According to the press release, funds from the now-defunct Costa Mesa Redevelopment Agency were used for those improvements, which include:
  • A new energy-saving state-of-the-art lighting system
  • The ability to turn lights on/off individually or as groups by phone or online
  • Capability to be used as either baseball or soccer fields
  • New vinyl-coated perimeter fencing
  • New 50-foot high baseball netting along the firs and third base lines
The public is invited to this dedication ceremony.


You will recall my recent post discussing the January 31, 2012 council study session that dealt with financial planning for this city. That meeting, attended by very few of your neighbors, was both illuminating and frustrating because it demonstrated the true intent of the current council majority.

Because this issue is so important to the future of this city, I highly recommend that residents take the opportunity provided by CMTV to view the replays on television or via the streaming video at the city web site.

The streaming video can be viewed HERE.


The replays on CMTV, Channel 24 (Time Warner Cable) or Channel 99 (ATT U-Verse) will follow the schedule listed below. You non-football fans will note that one of the replays is scheduled for 4 p.m. this Sunday - the same time the Super Bowl will be televised.

Thanks to our award-winning team at CMTV, Dane Bora and Brad Long, for continuing to provide important information to the residents of this city.

This quote is copied from a post to the Costa Mesans for Responsible Government Facebook page, attributed to Michael Moon.

"Mr . Righiemer has the deep pockets of the Costa Mesa taxpayer to fund his legal campaign against employee associations and unions in Costa Mesa. We, the taxpayers, are paying the legal costs to see if Mr. Righeimers plan to layoff 1/2 the staff is legal. It wasn't our plan, it was his. He never mentioned it in the 4 public candidates forums held leading up to the 2010 election. The voters were not honestly told by Mr Righiemer what his layoff plans were nor how he would pay for the inevitable legal challenges to the Righiemer layoffs. We will simply pay to assist Mr Righiemer through the courts. I trust you all will remember how you were used and manipulated the next time you vote."

I will remember. Once burned, twice shy. I watched the "Budget Boondoggle Show" start to finish. With the exception of Wendy, none of the city council can get their heads far enough above the stinking hole they have lowered themselves into to see beyond their own psuedo-consevative shtick and work for the good of the whole city. I helped those posers get where they are. I will indeed use my 3 votes more caefully this year!

CMtaxpayer: You sound like a city employee. Hmmmmm ..... we should all be so lucky.

FYI, Costa Mesa taxpayers have had enough of the bloated city payroll and the excessive pension benefits! We stand firmly behind our city councilmen. They are trying to repair a broken city government filled with many years of wasteful spending.

It's long past time somebody grew a brain in Costa Mesa. We are thankful for this council. When the election rolls around OUR votes will swamp YOUR votes, by at least 10 to 1.

Nope, I'm not a City employee, not a union member, not all that fond of unions. I have no idea who that Moon fella is, but his analysis is dead on.

Who I am or who he is won't change the fact that the current council are opportunists who don't know how to run a city. @Brain, let's assume you have one. Look at what they do and how they do it. Sometimes it's not the what but the how. In their case it's often both. Sometimes they almost talk sense, but their words belie their actions.

I'll save you the trouble of looking up "belie" Webster: To give a false idea of, disguise or mirepresent, to leave unfulfilled, disapoint, to show to be untrue.

Once again, not gonna vote for those guys or their allies. Fool me once, shame on them. fool me twice, shame on me. I got took once, I'm old enough to have been smarter, but I wasn't. Ain't gonna happen again!
