Gov. Gray Davis wants high school students to know that February is Cal Grant month -- and is launching a comprehensive effort to inform students about the grants and help them apply by the March 2 deadline. "California has the most generous financial aid program in the nation based on merit," Davis said in a statement. Under the Cal Grant expansion program, signed by Davis in 2000, every college-bound student who qualifies in time will get a Cal Grant of up to $9,700 per year for tuition or fees at qualifying California colleges or universities.

Are you confused? Concerned? Uneasy? Don't be. You have what psychologists call Davis- Recall- Budget- Collapse Anxiety. It's not your fault. It can happen to anyone. You catch it from the news. No worries. I'm here to help. Why is it that political pundits can understand this stuff and you can't? It's because they have two things that you don't: No real job and the Official Davis Recall Budget Collapse Handbook. Everything you ever wanted to know about the current pandemonium in Sacramento and the impact on cities like ours is in the Handbook.

Deirdre Newman Arnold Schwarzenegger channeled his Terminator persona's killer instinct to demonstrate his disdain for the car tax on Thursday. During a campaign rally in Costa Mesa, Schwarzenegger -- who in most polls is leading the state's recall election -- told the fervent crowd that when his movie characters don't take a liking to something, they destroy it. Then he promised to use the same tactic against the car tax if elected governor on Tuesday.

Danette Goulet NEWPORT-MESA -- Local parents have joined a regional letter-writing campaign to implore California Gov. Gray Davis to give school districts more control over how they can spend state funds. Newport-Mesa Unified School District's PTA presidents are encouraging the community to take part in the effort. Currently, the state budget dictates how school districts use much of their money. "It's mainly because the government is telling us how to spend the money we have, which may not be bad in itself; but districts across the state may not have the same needs," said JoAnne Russell, PTA president at California Elementary School.

Deirdre Newman School officials are battening down the hatches in preparation for the impending loss the district expects to suffer at the hands of the state budget axes. Paul Reed, assistant superintendent for the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, said he anticipates the district's funding will be slashed by about $1.5 million if the state adopts Gov. Gray Davis' proposal for the 2003-04 budget, drawn up in response to an expected $34-billion deficit.

Castaways Park plan sounds right at home The Castaways Park plan, which includes a meadow planted with California native plants and a grassy area created by mowed native groundcover sounds like a winner. When we add more than $100,000 in grants and the fact that a resident's committee and Newport Beach planning staff members collaborated to make a "community-friendly" park, we find the plan impossible to pass up. On top of all that, we welcome the native birds and insects, which look for a place to call home.

June Casagrande An estimated $34 billion state budget deficit could mean six- or even seven-digit setbacks for the city. City leaders are anxiously awaiting Jan. 10, when Gov. Gray Davis plans to release more details of his strategy to deal with the deficit. Though it's possible that the governor's remedy won't take a dime from the city's bottom line, observers are estimating that the city will feel a hit of anywhere from about $400,000 to $8 million.

I can't help but comment that it is certainly not headline news that Arnold Schwarzenegger gained with local debate watchers when you go to his local headquarters, take the pulse of the people and also to a meeting in Newport Beach. You probably were at the Arches restaurant, which has Arnold signs outside -- that would not be a surprise. I watched the debates. I thought that people were rude and that the debate leader, Stan Statham, was inept. What the debate showed me is that I am already happy to have cast my vote and mailed my ballot.

S.J. CAHN With less than two weeks to go before Californians decide the future of Gov. Gray Davis (at least it doesn't seem like anything else is going to pop up to stop it), I decided to do an unscientific survey/focus group of a piece of the electorate that was supposed to be fired up by the campaign, especially with Arnold Schwarzenegger running. That group: 30-odd Orange Coast College students in an introduction to newswriting class (which happens to be mine)

A while back, some Pilot letter writers got upset with me because I suggested that there has long been a perception in the rest of the country that an inordinate number of political nut cases have flourished in Orange County. I offered examples -- some of them local -- in support of that thesis. Now, I'm ready to pass that mantle on to the entire state. Like any citizen anxious to cast a thoughtful, well-researched vote, I spent an hour reading through the Los Angeles Times' brief biographies of the 158 candidates (I counted them)
