Orange County Employees Assn. General Manager Nick Berardino has clarified a statement he made at the 2011 California Democratic Convention a few weeks ago, where he said his union had "intercepted" e-mails from Republicans. Someone videotaped Berardino's comments and posted them online, where lawmakers and bloggers quickly dispersed the news that Berardino was "caught" admitting covert political maneuvering against conservatives. "We've had e-mails forwarded to us," Berardino said this week.

LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors on Wednesday introduced e-mails they say showed a relationship between the superintendent of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District and a former subordinate of his when he worked as schools chief in Beverly Hills. The correspondence, laced with sexual innuendo, pet names and terms of endearment, was sent between Newport-Mesa Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard and Karen Anne Christiansen, a former Beverly Hills Unified administrator. Some of the e-mails were sent while Hubbard still worked in Beverly Hills earlier this decade, but the majority were sent from his Newport-Mesa account.

E-mails among Newport-Mesa Unified School District officials and their embattled superintendent published in Saturday's print and Friday's online editions of the Daily Pilot were obtained with the help of 1st Amendment attorneys. Legal counsel for the Pilot and its parent company, Los Angeles Times Media Group, sent a letter to school district lawyers last week seeking the e-mails. They showed school board President Walt Davenport expressing strong support for Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard after he had been charged with two felonies.

Media reports about a series of e-mails laced with sexual innuendo between the superintendent of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District and a former subordinate in his last position in Beverly Hills did not raise eyebrows among local school board members. "I take it with a grain of salt," said Martha Fluor, a Newport-Mesa Board of Education member. "They are consenting adults. " Newport-Mesa Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard exchanged suggestive e-mails with a former employee in the Beverly Hills Unified School District, where Hubbard was schools chief prior to coming to Newport-Mesa.

Newport Beach residents will no longer have to wait more than a day for city officials to call them back or respond to their e-mails. Starting this week, the city will implement a new policy requiring employees to return all constituent communications within 24 hours. Mayor Keith Curry made the call to arms during his State of the City address Friday. In his speech, the mayor called the policy part of a new “gold standard for customer service” being implemented by City Manager David Kiff.

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District has officially denied a Daily Pilot request to turn over e-mails between the school board president and its embattled superintendent. Citing state public records law, the newspaper on Jan. 13 requested e-mails between Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard and school board President Walt Davenport. The request was officially declined Monday in a letter sent to the Pilot by Laura Boss, director of communications for the N-MUSD. Boss wrote that the e-mails between Davenport and Hubbard fall under "deliberative process privilege," meaning they qualify for confidentiality protections, and disclosing them to the public would "interfere with the flow of information to government officials and intrude upon the deliberation process.

The Newport-Mesa school board made the right call last week in accepting Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard's request to be placed on paid administrative leave. The misappropriation-of-funds charges against him in Los Angeles County, as well as the publication of spicy e-mails between him and a female subordinate, had distracted from the board's day-to-day mission: educating students in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. Though we hand a shiny apple (insert your own serpent reference here) to the Board of Education for doing the right thing, we're confounded about why it belatedly bowed to a request from Hubbard, rather than to its own conscience or community sentiment.

Newport Beach police want to remind the public to be wary of some things that seem too good to be true, especially when they come through unsolicited e-mails. Police said they've seen a resurgance of three e-mail scams targeting the public: foreign lottery scams, Nigerian foreign money offers and check overpayment schemes. In a foreign lottery scam, someone e-mails you claiming their from another country and tells you that you've won a foreign lottery. All you supposedly have to do is pay some fees to them to release the money.

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District has pulled from its schools a video on the dangers of inappropriate texting and Internet posting that featured Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard. The recall happened quietly in late January, one day after Hubbard's sexually charged e-mails to a former colleague were published in the Orange County Register. "It would not be appropriate for us to continue to promote and use the original version [of the DVD] under the current circumstances," Laura Boss, the district's spokeswoman, said in a statement.

Malarky's Irish Pub, a 35-year-old watering hole on the Balboa Peninsula, is planning a major remodel and expansion. That may be good news to its drinking denizens and Newport Beach business boosters, but some of the bar's neighbors aren't too pleased. They're organizing a protest ahead of Thursday's Newport Beach Planning Commission meeting. "You already have a saturation of drinking establishments on the peninsula," said Craig Batley, president of the West Newport Beach Assn.

Jeffrey Hubbard's legal woes can't be easy to take. So let me clue them in on a way to diffuse at least some of the disapproval: Do the right thing. Release all of the e-mails between Hubbard and board President Walt Davenport.

Now that Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard is on leave while he prepares for his upcoming trial, Newport-Mesa school board members must face the next set of difficult and uncomfortable issues. They must, of course, prepare for the possibility that Hubbard could be convicted, and they'd be forced to begin a search for a new schools chief. But what if Hubbard is able to return to his job? Should he be welcomed back? To answer that question, the trustees must put aside all personal and professional regard they may have for Hubbard and address the most pertinent issue: What is best for the students?
