Alex Coolman Kirsten Cappel is going international. The energetic 21-year-old from Huntington Beach has been interning at Costa Mesa's Earth Resource Foundation, an environmental group on 17th Street. The experience, she says, has given her a good sense of the way local politics work. But Cappel's professional and intellectual aspirations go far beyond 17th Street. Later this month she's heading to Geneva, Switzerland, where she will be part of a delegation of American students that will participate in a human rights summit.

Whether or not climate change is to blame, rising sea levels are a growing concern for Newport Beach city officials. For the past few years, municipal workers in charge of closing the city’s tide valves, which prevent ocean water from coming up through storm drains, have noticed that the high tides are getting higher. “It seems to be just several inches above what the tide book calls for, so we just plan to close the tide valves sooner so water doesn’t come into the storm drains,” said Mark Harmon, director of Newport’s General Services department, which oversees the tide valves.

A new candidate has entered the race for the Newport Beach City Council's 4th District. Mark Tabbert, an environmental activist and financial advisor, challenged incumbent Leslie Daigle when he filed the requisite paperwork Monday to run in the November election. "I've been bothered for a long time about what we say and do on environmental issues," said Tabbert, who has lived in Newport since 1998. A Santa Ana Heights resident, Tabbert says he is looking for a local platform to bring attention to climate change, species extinction and resource depletion, among other problems.

I cannot understand why the L.A. Times and the Daily Pilot continue on their editorial pages to defend the Irvine 11 (Editorial: Irvine 11, D.A. both made mistakes, Daily Pilot, Oct. 2; "Editorial: Punishing the 'Irvine 11' again, Los Angeles Times, Sept. 24"). I have observed and been involved with what has been going on at UC Irvine for at least 10 years or more. For too many years, these Muslim students have been causing disruptions, spewing their hate and making it difficult for serious students to get to classes and do what they have come there for — an education.

In cruising cable channels recently, I happened onto a classic sci-fi movie called "Silent Running" about a crew of people operating a greenhouse aboard a spaceship. The captain (Bruce Dern) said to the crew, "Do you know why there are no flowers, no fields of grass to lay in, no beauty back home? Because nobody cared!" His point is well taken when looking at how local leaders in Newport and Costa Mesa are handling the fate of Banning Ranch. At 6 p.m. Tuesday the Costa Mesa City Council may vote to take a few million in traffic mitigation money from developers.

Why would you reprint most of the "Applauding the 'Irvine 11'" article from the Los Angeles Times on Sept. 27, 2011? The article already appeared, in its entirety, the previous day in the L.A. Times. Did you feel we hadn't gotten enough of the prejudice of the L.A. Times coverage, which was more than transparent, with regard to the pre-meditated acts of verbal violence by the Muslim students against the Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, accusing him of being an "accomplice to genocide?"

Re. "Commentary: Global warming activism appears 'contrived," (Forum, Sept. 13): This opinion piece is so full of errors I don't even know where to start. First, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is not some bloated government panel of misfits. Information can be found on the United Nations' own w ebpage . According to the U.N., the panel consists of 12 full-time employees and has an annual budget of $9 million. Sounds like a bargain. The writer states that 37,000 scientists dispute these findings.

I found a pretty good spot to take some photos of a yacht in Newport Harbor that some people say is too big for its britches. The yacht, known as the Invictus and owned by billionaire Rick Caruso, stretches out an impressive 216 feet from dawn to dusk, oops, I mean from stem to stern, and features such items as six individual suites, a crew of 22, a theater, gym, expandable dining table for 20 guests, fold-down beach cabana and large sundeck with...

On behalf of the Knots of Love volunteers, I would like to clarify some facts about our yarn-bombing project recently covered by your newspaper ( "Yarn bombing delivers colorful message," Aug. 13). We are a nonprofit that survives solely on the beneficence of everyday people, both in monetary gifts and donated caps. Some interpreted our yarn-bombing project at The Lab Anti-Mall as a waste of valuable time and money that could have been better spent working toward our mission of creating caps and neonatal ICU blankets.
