Referring to IRS laws and regulations, the senior partner in my former accounting firm once told me that you complicate to deceive, simplify to tell the truth. Keep that in mind. On July 16, anyone who wants to run for one of the three seats on the Newport Beach City Council can pull papers. These nomination papers and declarations of candidacy need to be turned in by Aug. 10 to qualify for the November ballot. Because Newport is divided into districts, the seats up for election are District 1/West Newport (Councilman Steve Rosansky is termed out)

It wasn't a particular issue or a certain candidate that drew Mike Klein to a Costa Mesa grade school on Tuesday to vote. Rather, the 54-year-old stay-at-home dad was driven by a feeling that the entire nation needs change. "The country, the county ... " he said. "I'm tired of the same old, same old. " He voted for Mitt Romney for president, he explained, because he's the "lesser of two evils. " "I'm tired of both parties fighting for the party and not the country," he said.

Costa Mesa spokesman Bill Lobdell announced late Tuesday afternoon the cancellation of the evening's special City Council meeting, where the members were expected to vote on spending for a special election in June on the city charter initiative. Citing inadequate notification to the public, Lobdell said official documentation for the meeting did not properly state its scheduled time; rather, it only indicated that the meeting would "begin immediately following the regular adjourned meeting/study session in the City Council chambers.

Having failed to get a city charter initiative included on the county's ballot, the Costa Mesa City Council is looking to spend more than $150,000 to put on its own election June 5. The council will meet Tuesday night to consider whether it will host a special election concurrently with the statewide primary. "We need to become a charter city to get the financial tools we need," said Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer, the proposed charter's most vocal proponent. Costa Mesa residents would vote on having the city switch to a charter - essentially a city constitution - at the same polling place they'd go to for the state and national primaries.

Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer's campaign committee raised more than $35,000 in 2011, with about $11,000 coming in a single fundraiser in December, financial disclosure forms show. The disclosures, which were released last week, show Righeimer far ahead of anyone else seeking city office. Righeimer for City Council 2010 remains $42,000 in debt from loans Righeimer's company, LMC Management Group, used to fund his campaign two years ago, a time when he faced strong pushback from the police union.

We cannot solve our nation's daunting problems with tedious repetition of half-truths, fabrications and discredited policies that held sway during a period of six years when Republicans had full control of both Congressional houses and the White House. GOP policies brought our economy to its knees — policies that have decimated, and continue to decimate, what remains of our middle class. No matter what the RepubLiars say, the "Jobs Bill" is calculated to create 1.9 million jobs by nonpartisan analysts, not zero jobs as stated in a recent letter by Anita Meister-Boyd.

Doubles standout Ricki Archie will not be playing for the Newport Harbor High girls' tennis team this fall, she said Wednesday. Archie, who will be a senior at Newport Harbor, said she has been focusing on her full-time job this summer. She said she preferred not to discuss the specifics of the job, but she was working for the same company last summer on an internship basis before she was offered the full-time job. Archie, who played at No. 1 doubles with Christina Young last year for the Sailors, said tennis became one too many things to juggle.

Tuesday marked the first day the Corona del Mar High girls' volleyball team practiced inside the gym since it received a paint job. One player missing was Alexis Cage, the daughter of former NBA player Michael Cage. The Sea Kings will be without Alexis, a 6-foot-3 incoming junior, who has already committed to play for the University of Washington, said CdM Coach Marissa Booker. The loss of Alexis is big one at CdM, which enters this year with a new coach and high expectations.
