Incumbent Councilmen Keith Curry and Steve Rosansky both had substantial leads over challengers Dolores Otting and Gloria Alkire in early election returns Tuesday night. “I’m feeling pretty good right now, said Curry, who was in positioned to win his reelection bid for District 7 against Otting late Tuesday. “We’re pleased to be where we are. It’s not over, but I’m optimistic and Newport voters seem to be saying, ‘We can’t be bought,’” Curry said.

JOSEPH N. BELL About midnight on Nov. 2, when Ohio seemed hopelessly lost and I went finally to bed, I told myself I would write nothing more about this election. It was time to move on. Then the Pilot, as a contribution to community health, published a Forum commentary by clinical psychologist Steven Hendlin telling those of us who were experiencing a "post-election emotional letdown" how to slog our way through it. Although I felt he minimized some of the consequences of this election, his suggestions were rational and helpful.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Conrad Giedt didn’t vote for President Barack Obama. “I’ve always leaned Republican,” he said, opening up his overcoat to reveal a tie emblazoned with elephants. And yet he called his congressman, Rep. John Campbell, the day after the election to see if he could get tickets to the presidential inauguration. “Tuesday evening [election night] my oldest son said, ‘Dad, we have to go,’” the Newport Beach man said.

In the pressure cooker of election night, while waiting for results and then reacting to them with all possible haste, it's easy for reporters to forget the important things — like what kind of food people served at their parties, and who showed up, with or without clever quips for the media. In that spirit, here are some tidbits from Newport-Mesa, and the GOP bash in Irvine, from Tuesday night's festivities. Newport-Mesa school board hopeful Sandy Asper's party at a Newport Dunes clubhouse featured Mexican food, a very slow laptop delivering Orange County election results, and a large TV with national results on CNN. Just before the first results came in after 8 p.m., the crowd of about 40 clapped and chanted "San-dy!

UC Irvine's campus newspaper will stay in print thanks to students who approved a new registration fee at the ballot box this week. Staff of the New University student newspaper had been campaigning for a 99-cent per quarter fee to finance printing, warning that the paper could fold in a year otherwise. They won a reprieve Tuesday. More than 72% of student voters approved the fee, which amounts to about $3 per year per student. "I definitely was glad to see that there's more support for us than I thought," said the newspaper's student editor Jessica Pratt.

State Sen. Tom McClintock, the GOP candidate for lieutenant governor, told a group of attorneys, politicos and other community members on Tuesday about the need to reform the justice system. As McClintock explained at Costa Mesa's Center Club, he suggests two reforms — separating the award of punitive damages from civil courts and adopting the English rule by which the loser in a court case must cover the winner's legal fees. The event was a luncheon in honor of Lawsuit Abuse Awareness Week, which runs through Friday.

About six weeks or so ago, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher’s closest supporters sat him down and told him something he hasn’t heard in many, many years. “You’re going to have to campaign this time.” Let’s face it. The 46th Congressional District, which looks like the boot-shaped Italy upside down, is safe political territory for Republicans. It stretches from Costa Mesa up to Long Beach and then over to Rancho Palos Verdes. Many representatives in the House perpetually run for office since they only serve two-year terms, but the former President Reagan speechwriter has been on a victory lap for two decades.
