Huntington Beach Mayor Deborah Cook is planning a run against Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in November. Cook cited the faltering economy, global warming, rising costs of healthcare and the war in Iraq as some of the major problems facing the country. She called for bipartisan solutions to the issues. While Cook no doubt faces an uphill battle in the strongly Republican district, the mayor trumpeted her commitment to public service, saying she believes “the best and most creative solutions” come from elected officials who are close to their constituents at the local level.

U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher recently slammed warnings of climate change as bad science and alarmism in a speech on the House of Representatives floor. In a lengthy speech Thursday condemning former Vice President Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” the International Panel on Climate Change, as well as previous environmental cause cèlébres such as fears about holes in the ozone layer and acid rain, Rohrabacher claimed large parts of the environmental movement were mere “pseudoscience” to justify increased government regulation.

I do not mind criticism, but not for an inaccurate portrayal of a statement or position I have taken on an issue as mentioned in the letter to the editor ("Rohrabacher's wife least of our worries, April 19). As I stated in May last year, it was falsely reported that I suggested "clear-cutting the world's forests" to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions. I have never, and would never, make such a suggestion or support such a policy. Once again, those with a global agenda have created a straw man by misrepresenting the position of their critics.

A crystal-clear steal -- uh, deal for vacationers So the state of California is going to rent out oceanfront restored historic Crystal Cove cottages for $100 a night? Let's see. That's $12 million, for the "initial phase," divided by 30 cottages. That's $400,000 per cottage, not counting the cost of the land. Figure you're getting a million-dollar beach house for $100 a night. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the best deal for vacationers since free duck dinners on the Grand Canal.

It?s rather insulting to have someone tell you that you?re not patriotic enough. This is nowhere more true than here in Costa Mesa, given our rich heritage of patriotism going back to the Santa Ana Army Air Base of World War II, the land that now hosts City Hall, Orange Coast College and the fairgrounds. Plus, many of the airmen who passed through the air base liked what they saw and settled down in Costa Mesa after the war. As a result, our city is probably more patriotic than most.

I’ve got a news flash for the residents of Seattle, Beijing, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Malibu, New England, the upper Midwest, Europe and much of the rest of the northern half of the planet. That’s not near-historic record levels of ice and snow on your front yard. Oh no! According to Joe Bell, vaunted journalist and noted Chuck Cassity critic (“Odds and ends for the new year,” Jan. 1), it’s “selected facts.” That should make clean-up much easier.

COSTA MESA — Six hours a day, five days a week, Amanda Schultz stands at a busy intersection and tries to grab the attention of strangers. A number of them brush past her, while others stop and engage her in debates. Every so often, one whips out a pen and agrees to donate $15 or more each month. Schultz, an Irvine Valley College student, put her studies on hold recently to work full time for environmental nonprofit Greenpeace. The group, which started in Canada in 1971, opened a Costa Mesa office in October — the first-ever in Orange County and one of only 11 sites in the country.

Lawrence Winters’ usually frenetic eighth-grade social studies class sat in silence watching videos about global warming Thursday. The TeWinkle Middle Schoolers’ silence didn’t last long. “They recognized this is the world they are going to be living in,” Winters said. The class was working with UCI undergraduate students from Global Connect, a university community and outreach program. Students decided to do some environmental activism by writing letters and building posters to promote a “green” world, while educating themselves on the subject.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry - who brought his presidential campaign to Corona del Mar last week - may not believe in global warming, but perhaps a new study about the effects climate change could have on the economy could get him to reconsider the science. Expected beach erosion and the death of sea life caused by warmer waters could wash away hundreds of millions in tourism and tax dollars statewide, according to a recent study by San Francisco State economists. If the environmental reasons are not enough to get the attention of those who don't believe in the man-made causes of global warming, perhaps the economic reasons will prove convincing.

Dear President Bush: Had I known last week that you were going to be in Irvine, so close to Costa Mesa and Newport Beach, I would have directed Saturday's column to you in the hope that by some miracle you would have seen it. I would have told you that there doesn't seem to be anyone in your administration who knows the master plan for our presence in Iraq. And if there is anyone who does know of such a plan, he or she is not telling. Either way, that's bad. Is the plan a secret?
