State Sen. John Campbell put some muscle behind his campaign for the 48th Congressional District seat Wednesday when he came out with an endorsement from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The seat is being vacated by Rep. Chris Cox, who last week was confirmed as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The endorsement -- unusual in a Republican primary -- is expected to play well in Newport Beach, but it left Campbell opponent Marilyn Brewer's supporters "perplexed," as a Brewer campaign consultant put it. Since the governor took office, Campbell has often been at his side.

When Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger swings through Orange County this week, he'll be eating, drinking, and explaining his campaign strategy to a potentially fertile field of donors. Today, Schwarzenegger's having lunch with the New Majority in Newport Beach, and Wednesday evening it's cocktails in Costa Mesa with the Orange County chapter of the Lincoln Club. Some Republicans have ripped the governor for allowing a bloated budget, appointing a Democrat as chief of staff and otherwise alienating some party voters, but he likely won't face many harsh accusations from the lunch and cocktail crowds.

Newport-Mesa legislators met Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's State of the State speech Tuesday with skepticism, although he took an approach one assemblyman called "conciliatory." The governor outlined a list of projects and reforms, including building and renovating more school classrooms, reducing dependence on fossil fuels, overhauling the health-care system and reforming the state's redistricting system. Newport Beach Republican Assemblyman Chuck DeVore said his constituents may be particularly interested in a plan to make more information about schools available online — for example, how they're spending money or their dropout rates.

Last week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued an executive order forcing 238,000 employees to take off two unpaid days a month through June 30, 2010, with managers receiving either the same time off or a commensurate pay reduction. The governor?s office calculated that the furloughs would save the state more than $1.2 billion as the state struggles to pare down an expected $42-billion hole by mid-2010. What do you think of the governor?s order? ? The governor should use every legal tool to reduce state spending, which has more than doubled in 10 years ?

NEWPORT BEACH - While losing the first race in a best-of-five final of the 47th Governor's Cup, Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club of Perth, Australia found a way to flip the script against Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron Sunday. It might have appeared that skipper Chris Steele, Scott Barnes (middle) and George Brasell (bow) of Royal New Zealand had the momentum to become the champion. Royal New Zealand was excellent during the first three days of the 12-team junior match racing regatta with just one loss before Saturday's semifinals.

NEWPORT BEACH - The San Diego Yacht Club team of skipper A.J. Reiter, Storm Brown (middle) and David Larson (bow) has no qualms about being the Cinderella story of the 47th Governor's Cup. "We're having a lot of fun with it actually," Reiter said Friday night after SDYC completed a miraculous run into Saturday's semifinals. Reiter had lost his first seven races on Day One and then went 9-2 over the next two days. "We've been quoting 'Caddyshack' all day, when Bill Murray says, 'what a Cinderella story,'" said Reiter, making reference to Murray's Carl Spackler commentating his own dream situation in the Masters just before rain falls, as he whacks at flowers.

Despite $2.7 billion of increased K-12 school spending in Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed budget, Newport-Mesa Unified School District's budget guru believes the money will not make it to the Orange Coast. Deputy Supt. Paul Reed cautioned school board trustees soon after Californians passed Proposition 30, Brown's initiative to fund schools by raising taxes, that Newport-Mesa shouldn't count on more state money and may even need to cut another $3.2 million from its $220-million-plus budget.
