I read of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District trustees' decision in Thursday morning's Daily Pilot ["11 expelled in CdM cheating episode," Jan. 30]. Of course I support this decision. These students had zero conscience and were out to beat the system without having to study and work hard to meet those goals. My concern is mostly with the position expressed by Newport Harbor High School student, Isabel Jorgensen: I wouldn't want this pack of cheats transferred to my high school either.

Many of our readers, particularly those who often made a special trip to the supermarket to grab the paper, asked us to put their Daily Pilot back into copies of the Los Angeles Times so they could get their local, regional, national and world news in one place. We heard you and want you to know there are now several ways to read the Pilot Wednesday to Sunday in print, and, of course, daily online. The first is to subscribe to The Times and have the Pilot delivered, with The Times, to your home.

I wanted to applaud the amazing sports staff at the Daily Pilot. I have been an avid reader of the Los Angeles Times and the Pilot for more than 35 years and particularly enjoy the local high school sports coverage. As a longtime player, parent of athletes and fan of water polo, I never miss an article about my favorite sport. Matt Szabo is an immense talent, a rising star. It has been great fun to see him improve as a journalist over the years as he throws himself into everything he covers and works to hone his skills.

Memorial services are often somber. But not for the people who loved former Daily Pilot columnist Joe Bell. They celebrated his life Tuesday night at UC Irvine, where he taught journalism. They had — and I know this sounds strange given the context of the event — fun. Fun talking about the 92 years Joe filled with World War II service, driveway basketball games, articles in the Saturday Evening Post, frustrations with Angels baseball (2002 excepted), afternoons of martinis and popcorn, the hosting of exchange students and political discussions around the dinner table.

As a devoted newspaper man, Joseph Bell spent his life sharing stories. After two hours and more than a dozen speeches during Bell's memorial Tuesday night, it became clear that Bell's personality and humor touched just as many people as his widely published writing. Bell, a longtime Newport Beach resident known for his extensive publishing record as a freelance writer, journalism educator, author and Daily Pilot columnist, died on Thanksgiving 2013, members of his family said.

Re. "Tickets the work of a grinch, recipient says," [Dec. 30]: I have resided on Balboa Island for many years and was moving my truck, like I always do for street sweeping, and saw the scene unfold in front of me. It was embarrassing. All of us who have lived on the island know the drill about parking tickets and those visiting can clearly see the signs but to see residents yell and swear at the parking-control officer for doing her job, and to see grown men and a woman stand on the street and curse at her and make obscene gestures, repeatedly, made me embarrassed to be a neighbor.

I am proud of this year's Daily Pilot 103. That's not self-congratulations. I am thanking our readers. The bulk of the DP 103 came from them. Awhile back I wrote a column asking readers for a few suggested names to help fill out the annual list. I got dozens of nominations from emails, online comments and phone calls. Thank you, Newport-Mesa. Most of this list is yours. Except for the parts that aren't. We had to make space for our staff picks as well. My only regret is not having room for all the reader choices, though most of them are there.

Costa Mesa's 60th anniversary celebration has so far cost close to $400,000, significantly more than the initial $315,000 estimate to produce the event, according to a year's worth of public records reviewed by the Daily Pilot. The total cost - before revenue - appears to be nearly triple the $125,000 the City Council authorized in public funds for the three-day, summertime party. But the event also produced income in the form of ticket and concession sales, sponsorships and outside grants, so the true cost to taxpayers will probably remain unclear until an expected city audit is released early next year.
