While Newport Beach recently banned gas-powered leaf blowers and may ban smoking in public parks, at least one environmental reform didn't go far with the City Council. A proposed prohibition on retail plastic bags, which was passed in Long Beach and some other California cities, was dead on arrival when floated at a recent City Council study session. "This one would be a doozy, and we would potentially expose the city to litigation," said Councilwoman Leslie Daigle. None of the council members spoke in favor of a ban, including Nancy Gardner.

Another missed resident, deserving of 103 recognition In response to your request for a name that you missed in your recent DP 103 special section, how about "America's Most Famous Pitchman," as Orange County's Image Magazine recently coined him: Costa Mesa's own Michael Villani? Though his name is not well known, his face appears many times daily as the spokesman. A die-hard O.C. resident since 1973, the thought of "going Hollywood" and leaving Costa Mesa has never entered his mind.

Andrew Glazer COSTA MESA -- There should be no problem addressing Latino concerns as the city makes plans to revitalize the West Side, the project's leader said Tuesday. "The satisfaction of this whole project will come from seeing the end results," said Elwood C. Tescher, director of urban planning and design at EIP Associates, the consultants hired by the city. "The only way for that to happen is to get the stakeholders involved in the process." Almost 45% of the neighborhood's residents are Latino, according to a report UC Irvine graduate students prepared for the advisory group.
