Paul Clinton NEWPORT BEACH -- Hoping to stunt a burgeoning public relations campaign by pro-El Toro advocates, South County cities say they will sue to stop mailers and a television advertisement. Without giving a timetable, board members of the El Toro Reuse Planning Authority at an emergency meeting Tuesday directed their lawyers to sue Newport Beach. Authority members hope a Superior Court judge will declare recent fliers -- deriding Irvine's Great Park plan for the closed Marine base as "misleading junk" -- to be an improper use of public funds.

He had nearly given up all hope of finding his furry friend. But one week later, this tail -- four legs, wet nose and floppy ears included -- is a happy one. On Jan. 21, a 6-month-old chocolate Labrador named Kona was snatched by an unknown woman not far from Ryan Marek's home on Church Street. The plucky pooch had dug his way to freedom under a gate in Marek's backyard and made a dash for a nearby car wash. Employees there said an elderly woman picked up the dog, put him in her gold station wagon and drove away.

Group passes out fliers and plans a door-to-door effort in its campaign to defeat Measure F.An Orange County activist group launched a campaign Saturday against the Measure F school bond, handing out fliers that protested the local school district's plan to renovate campuses with tax money. Saturday afternoon at Newport Pier, about a dozen members of the Orange County Young Republicans set up a voter registration table and distributed fliers to passersby. The flier, titled "Measure F will raise your taxes," accuses the Newport-Mesa Unified School District of spending irresponsibly and taking a "second bite at the apple" after the passage of the Measure A school bond five years ago. The group plans to set up another table at Newport Pier on Oct. 22 and distribute fliers door to door in the first week of November.

On Oct. 25, veteran police officer Jess Gilman retired, leaving a huge void in our local schools - a void that cannot be filled because the City Council refuses to allow the police chief to staff the Police Department adequately. As a result, unlike in Newport Beach Schools, we no longer have any school resource officers in Costa Mesa. The next day, the Costa Mesa Police Department announced the retirement of four senior police management officers: one captain, two Lieutenants and one Sergeant.

Photographs show a diminutive Ludwig inside planters, next to a hungry dog, petting a black cat, socializing with Aflac ducks and enjoying Belvedere vodka. His ongoing sojourn even includes attending a performance of his Ninth Symphony at Irvine's Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.

Unlike the mythical ship doomed to sail forever without reaching port, this Flying Dutchman is welcomed wherever it goes. Saturday at the Lyons Air Museum at John Wayne Airport, P-51 ace Capt. Bob Goebel met local history buffs and admirers as he signed copies of his book retelling his exploits over Europe during World War II. "It makes you feel appreciated, it's a very nice touch," Goebel said. "I don't feel particularly special, but I'm proud of what I did. " What Goebel did was down 11 German pilots in his P-51, a long-range, single-seat fighter nicknamed the Cadillac of the sky. "I'm afraid the 51 requires a place in history," he said, sitting in front of one of the few still able to fly. "It really turned the tide of the air war with its long legs.

The battle over undergrounding utilities on Balboa Island is heating up, with homeowners organizing to send out mailers and make signs both for and against plans to create a $20-million assessment district on the Island. “It’s putting neighbor against neighbor and it’s getting interesting,” said Balboa Island homeowner Bob McCaffrey, who opposes the assessment district. Island property owners will vote April 28 over whether to create an assessment district that would cost them thousands of dollars apiece to get rid of the utility poles that line the alleyways to beautify the island.

Trustees Jerry Patterson and Jim Moreno, as well as candidate Lorraine Prinsky, and the Coast Federation of Educators faculty union said that putting a student on a mailer like that was unethical.
