Danette Goulet NEWPORT-MESA -- Parents and community leaders submitted a formal proposal to the Newport-Mesa Unified School District on Thursday, asking the school board to consider their plans for a start-up charter school.

Nothing ever seems to go smoothly when it comes to Newport Coast and its slow incorporation into Newport Beach. When the city was annexing the community back in 2001, residents of the hills above the rest of Newport Beach bargained hard -- and understandably -- to receive $18 million over 15 years in tax credits and to have the city set aside $7 million more in tax money to build a community center. In 2002, the bump was a small one -- a wrangle between Newport Coast community leaders and City Hall over the interest on part of that $18 million that amounted to about $43,000 a year.

It's hard to believe six months have passed since perennial Costa Mesa City Council candidate Chris Steel stunned the community with a resounding victory at the polls, leading all vote-getters in the 11-person field. But the election of Steel, who had long railed against illegal immigrants, local charities and the city's job center on the Westside, did something else. It caused editors of this newspaper to stand up and take notice. No longer was Steel an amateur on the fringe of the Costa Mesa political scene.

In these times of chronic deficits and belt-tightening in which we're too often told that to continue to operate in the fashion that our expanding government has become accustomed, we have no choice but to pay more and receive less for even the most basic of government services, it's refreshing to highlight an old-school approach still occurring in countless communities. It's one that takes a "what can I do," rather than an "it will cost you" approach. This bedrock American value has rewarded our communities with economic growth, prosperity and charity, making our country what it is today.
