Listening to the Planning Commission Jim Righeimer audio tape should be mandatory listening for all Costa Mesa voters ("City shares tapes of tiff," Sept. 30). While he certainly doesn't sound belligerent, he is way out of line stating that "this is not education" and "we need to have a meeting tomorrow." Then he has the gall to accuse the Costa Mesa Police Association of trying to smear him.
No need for them to try, Mr. Righeimer. You did a pretty good job of doing it all by yourself.
Concerning the DUI checkpoint set up by the police at Harbor Boulevard and Gisler Avenue, I am in complete agreement with Jim Righeimer regarding the placement and time of the DUI checkpoint. I spent six signals trying to make a left-hand turn onto Harbor from Gisler — and I was only the second car back!
