COSTA MESA — The Planning Commission on Tuesday approved the creation of a task force that will attempt to address homelessness in the city. The task force, adopted after a unanimous vote, will have two commissioners and various community members. The commissioners chosen for the task force will be decided at the next meeting. "I think the task force is a way for the community to vet the current challenges and come up with a potential solution to an issue, which appears to be a major challenge for a lot of people on the Westside and the community at large," Planning Commissioner Steve Mensinger said.

To Brady [Rhoades] and all of you so quick to judge, Your comment started out with “We’re getting hammered about running, front and center, a picture of girl dancers from Endeavor School of the Arts performing at the Fish Fry at Lions Park on Saturday” (“Is this photo too risque?” blog item published June 1). “Hammered” implies some wacky visions. Was your e-mail box getting overrun? Were your phones ringing off the hook? Is that why I have been getting nothing but busy signals when calling in?

Gloomy May weather couldn’t keep the crowds away from the deep-fried goodness at the Fish Fry in Lions Park on Saturday. “The secret is using fresh fish and fresh oil, and you can taste it,” said Raul Jara, secretary and incoming president of the Costa Mesa-Newport Harbor Lions Club, which puts on the Fish Fry each year. The Lions club has raised about $2.5 million from the event over its 62-year history to benefit local charities and Lions Club causes, like preventing blindness, Jara said.

In 1968, Bonnie Langseth watched with pride as her daughter Tonya Collier — then a 2-year-old with big blue eyes, curly brown hair and a blue sailor dress — was crowned the cutest baby in Costa Mesa by a panel of judges at the annual Fish Fry carnival. Then in 1987, Tonya’s daughter, Tara, won an honorable mention in the same contest. Now, 41 years and two generations after the first triumph, Tara’s infant daughter and Bonnie’s great granddaughter Sophia will attempt to capture the same prize her grandmother took home all those years ago while her distinguished family members sit on the sideline Sunday afternoon.
