Davis Magnet School emphasizes environmentalism with Eco-Education Nights, "Waste-Free Wednesdays" and an ecology center. Now it's been chosen for a green-classroom experiment. The Orange County U.S. Green Building Council selected the Costa Mesa K-6 campus to receive a free "greenovation" of one of its classrooms in order to collect data on the financial impact of going green. The council hopes to reaffirm anecdotal evidence that an environmentally friendly classroom is healthier and cost-effective.

COSTA MESA - Some call her the plant lady. She calls herself the Davis Gardner. JoAnn Copp, a 68-year-old retired teacher, who sports a blue streak in the front of her white-blond hair and nine hoop earrings on her left ear, never stopped working at Davis Magnet School. She just happened to trade in her dry-erase markers and red pens for a garden hose and shears. "This is my passion," said Copp, a former special education teacher and longtime Costa Mesa resident.

COSTA MESA — "Michael Recycle" held up a brown paper bag, several clear plastic baggies and a plastic juice box. He was showing off the items to a crowd of kindergarteners, first- and second-graders eating their lunch Wednesday at Davis Magnet School in Costa Mesa. The students stuck their arms up, with thumbs turned down in disapproval, and booed the supply of hard-to-reuse food and beverage containers. "I'd have to have all this trash, but you guys don't have to do that," said Michael Recycle, aka Mike Carey, as he showed the students what he used to take to lunch when he was a kid. Carey is the sustainability coordinator at Orange Coast College and director its recycling center.

Editor's note: This corrects the grade level of the students who received netbooks at Davis, Sonora, Paularino and Killybrook elementary schools. COSTA MESA — Gathered in the multipurpose room at the end of a recent school day, students in Liz Sawyer's fourth- and fifth-grade combo class awaited the red-carpet premiere of book trailers they had spent the last three months putting together. When the time was right, the students exited the room and came back in on a red paper "carpet" as their books were announced to cheers from a handful of parents and other students.

What's the most important issue facing the city? The need to elect three council members, devoid of special-interest obligations, who have conviction, courage, hindsight and vision to address, abate and remove, if necessary, the sources or magnet attractions of our growing conditions that are clearly affecting our public schools, our crime rate, our budget, environment, etc. What do you think of the city's joint-use...

On Wednesday, I attended the second meeting of the Costa Mesa Homeless Task Force at the Neighborhood Community Center right by the epicenter of homelessness — Lions Park. The meeting lasted three hours and, in addition to the presentations by the Homeless Task Force members themselves, it included several poignant testimonials by homeless and formerly homeless individuals who recounted their journey to and from homelessness. Chairman of the Task Force, Daily Pilot real estate columnist Steve Smith, and the facilitator of the group, Vanguard University's Larry Haynes, did a good job of keeping the agenda on track.
