Jennifer Kho COSTA MESA -- An announcement that the bulk mail department at the Adams Avenue post office is closing next month has spurred city businesses to send in a bulk of complaints. Customers of the department, which is more than 30 years old, will be transferred to another post office on Sunflower Avenue in Santa Ana beginning April 15 as part of a U.S. Postal Service attempt to streamline its facilities. "I think this is ridiculous," said Larry Weichman, a broker at the Real Estaters in Costa Mesa.

From a news perspective, the 1990s in Newport-Mesa had it all. Million-dollar embezzlements by officials in a city and a school district. A sexual harassment scandal in the Newport Beach Police Department that took down the chief and his top lieutenant. A hard-fought and highly emotional political campaign over a proposed airport that divided the north and the south. An ongoing environmental story. An international sports star in our backyard. A devastating car crash and its aftermath, including what many called a modern miracle.

The art at Westside Costa Mesa's World Gallery is intergalactic, but visitors shouldn't expect paintings of orbiting planets or sculptures of little green men. Thomas Burgard opened the gallery in May, hoping to attract more people to the area and to offer locals a place to view and showcase a variety of artwork. "What I mean by intergalactic is it encompasses everything in the universe and is not limited to any sort or style of art," said Burgard, who utilizes oils, acrylics and watercolors to recreate his world adventures on canvas.
