Mailbag: Republicans are too out of touch

June 20, 2012

•Put up signs, pass out a lot of fliers and place ads. Most found ads are free and some lost ads are too. Place ads in the Orange County Register, Los Angeles Times, Pennysaver and any community papers. If you find a pet without ID tags, take it to a veterinarian and have it scanned for a microchip.

•Go to shelters every day if possible. Check the shelter websites often.

•Have pictures and description details available.

If you are close to shelters in another county, be sure to check there. Pets, especially dogs, can travel a long way.

The local shelter servicing Costa Mesa and Newport Beach is the Orange County Humane Society Shelter, 21632 Newland St., Huntington Beach. Call them at (714) 536-8480 or visit


For more information call (714) 891-PETS.

OCTA's toll road plan is a bad one

I strongly oppose Alternative 3 of the Orange County Transportation Authority's plans for the San Diego (405) Freeway (Re. "Comment period open on freeway project," June 19).

I am a Costa Mesa resident, work in Long Beach and use this section of road often.

Adding general-purpose lanes is one thing. Adding a carpool lane could make some sense.

Using taxpayer funds to support a private road is a horrible idea.
