Newport Beach Mayor Keith Curry wants to rename Bonita Canyon Sports Park after Ronald Reagan. Mindful that February will mark the 100th anniversary of Reagan's birth, Curry proposed at Tuesday's City Council meeting that the park's signs be replaced and named after the late president, California governor and Republican hero. City taxpayer money wouldn't be spent on this project, according to the mayor's proposal. Curry appealed to the Parks, Beaches and Recreation Commission to move to rename the park at 1990 Ford Road as part of the centennial celebration.

I am writing in response to Newport Beach Councilman Keith Curry's letter regarding local control of beach fire rings ["Commentary: Each city should make its own fire ring decision," [Jan. 11]. I too want to discuss the important issues facing California, such as attempts to weaken Proposition 13 by the Legislature. Just as important, we must also protect Proposition 13 from local elected officials who use different mechanisms to circumvent it, such as a dock fee to increase taxes on homeowners.

By the time Newport Beach Mayor Keith Curry announced his candidacy for state Assembly on Thursday morning, the emails of support had been pouring in - about 30 or 40 in the past 24 hours, he said. In a speech at the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce's monthly Wake Up! Newport breakfast event, he aimed to garner a few more. "It's really been a transformational year for Newport Beach," he said, citing the completion of the Civic Center and the negotiation of an extension of the John Wayne Airport settlement , which is expected to keep curfews and passenger caps in place for decades.

When the expensive new civic center opened in Newport Beach last year, some claimed it as a symbol of an irresponsible government out of touch with the people it represented. Councilman Keith Curry served as mayor at the time. He has embraced the project, which ultimately cost the city nearly $140 million, as an example of quality work that will meet the needs of the community for decades to come. He noted that the project is more than just a City Hall; it comprises a library, park, emergency center, community room and parking structure.

When Jim Righeimer, the mayor of Costa Mesa, approached the lectern where he would speak Thursday morning, he immediately discovered two plastic bottles of Diet Coke. He pulled them from the podium's shelf and, to general laughter, placed them atop the stand. "OK, I get the joke," he said, feigning defeat. About 75 Newport Beach residents and employees had gathered at the Newport Beach Public Library to hear thoughts from the mayor of their neighboring town. Mentions of the relationship between the two cities coursed throughout the speech, which was part of a morning speaker series hosted by the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce.
