Our fair city of Costa Mesa has been roiled with controversy over the past few weeks about our serious budget deficit and the actions our City Council is taking in an attempt to correct it. I thought I'd look into the facts about this situation, in an effort to cut through the rhetoric and become better informed. According to reported data, the average Costa Mesa household earns about $60,000 per year. Three hundred and sixty-six of Costa Mesa's 472 employees are paid more than $100,000 per year.

The Daily Pilot asked fourth-graders at Newport Elementary School: "Would you have wanted to live on a mission?" "No, because when the Indians were there, they had to give up their heritage and their culture to the Spanish." Olivia Muscatello, 9 Newport Beach "No. I'd probably want to own my own land." Ian MacInnis, 10 Newport Beach "No, because there were punishments if you did something wrong, and children did certain jobs I would not want to do."

It isn't every day that Don Schoendorfer gets a call from the White House. In fact, the Santa Ana resident had never gotten any calls from the White House, which is why he was skeptical when a woman claiming to be with the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives called and said President Bush wanted to meet with him. This was no prank call -- the president wanted to meet Schoendorfer to commend...

Anastacia Grenda The Mexican film "Ave Maria" features an exceptional performance by Tere Lopez Tarin as a young woman who is persecuted for her beliefs, both scientific and spiritual. Tarin plays the titular Maria, who is living at a mission in "the New Spain" in 1659. Because her father is in good graces with the prelate who can fund a new cathedral for the mission, Maria is allowed to focus more on her intellectual pursuits, such as botany and astronomy, than on her prayers.

Opening my mail the end of March I found a 10-page foldout piece from the city titled "Newport Beach General Plan - a progress report on the general plan use element amendment. " The title itself is mind numbing, but residents in Newport should be paying close attention to what's bubbling up here. First off, this is probably one of the most poorly produced public information pieces I think I've ever seen. I'm sure someone thought it was really artsy and cool, but it was hardly legible in places.

The new sports complex, Bill Sumner insisted, will not be a 5,000-seat behemoth of a stadium. Its lights will not shine into neighbors' homes through the night, the longtime Corona del Mar High School track coach said. And its footprint, Sumner added, will not be any larger than the aging, patched-up track and field that are already there. Sumner - who is spearheading the high school's efforts to revamp its outdoor sports facilities - wanted to make that much clear Thursday, as he showed off a series of illustrations depicting a state-of-the-art field complex that would seat about 1,400 and include lights, new bathrooms, two team rooms and two snack bars.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's inspector general will investigate a federal agency whose mission is to exterminate birds, coyotes, mountain lions and other animals that threaten the livelihoods of farmers and ranchers. The investigation of U.S. Wildlife Services is to determine, among other things, "whether wildlife damage management activities were justified and effective. " Biologists have questioned the agency's effectiveness, arguing that indiscriminately killing more than 3 million birds and other wild animals every year is often counterproductive.

Roger Daltrey doesn't perform at fairs. Usually, anyway. Saturday's concert at the Pacific Amphitheatre will be his second such gig in a career spanning 50 years. The first was in Minnesota in the 1990s. The details escape him, he said - it's been so long. Hardcore fans tend to flock to theaters and arenas, regardless of whether it's a solo program or a tour by the Who. Fairs are a strange sort of fun because you can never be sure what you're going to get, Daltrey admitted. What about the OC Fair urged him to sign up, then?

At its first meeting Wednesday evening, the 13-member Costa Mesa Charter Committee got something of a civic governance crash course, then discussed the ways it hoped to move forward. Legal counsel for the committee, Kimberly Hall Barlow, explained the history of municipal charters and what they entail, and also ran down some of the finer points of California's open-meeting law, the Ralph M. Brown Act. At the three-hour meeting in the city's Emergency Operations Center, committee members bandied ideas for how they planned to tackle the potentially thorny topic of a Costa Mesa City Charter.

The Costa Mesa Planning Commission plans to adopt a mission statement during its meeting Monday and begin convening more frequently. The five-member board meets once a month, though city staff have recommended that they meet twice monthly because of an increased workload. If a second session is not needed, it can be canceled, according the commission's agenda report. If approved, the meetings would be at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. The change is not anticipated to increase the members' $400 monthly stipend.

During its first meeting Thursday, the Fairview Park Citizens Advisory Committee selected its leaders before discussing several topics, including the group's purpose, renewal of lease agreements and the possibility of adding soccer fields to the 208-acre park. The reconvened committee, which hasn't met in about a decade, first heard some lesser-known tidbits - such as the park's land value - during a city staff presentation by Bart Mejia, parks project manager. If sold today, the park, which contains 50% of the city's total parkland, could be valued at a conservative $350 million to $400 million, Mejia said.
