The July 31 Daily Pilot article " Officials postpone business tax review ," highlights a disturbing trend by a small but vocal minority in Costa Mesa — blame Nordstrom and South Coast Plaza for not paying their fair share of taxes.

For some shoppers, Black Friday started six days ago. Daniela Ramirez and her brother waited on the street in front of Metro Pointe's Best Buy since Sunday. They were camped out with sleeping bags and a collapsible awning waiting to buy a TV. It wasn't their first attempt. "We've done it last year.... " the 21-year-old said. "We were No. 16 in line last year, but we didn't even get one because everyone cut in," Ramirez said. Seasoned from that failed trip at a different location, they were taking no chances this year, with about eight buyers already in front of them.

I feel compelled to respond to Planning Commissioner Colin McCarthy's recent commentary on Costa Mesa business taxes ( "Don't burden businesses with higher fees," Aug. 4). McCarthy seems to be making three points to support his view that business taxes should not be increased for the first time in 52 years: that businesses are already paying too many taxes, that they don't receive anything in return for paying business taxes and that increased business taxes would chase businesses out of town.

The left side of Ben Nordstrom's body has sure given him issues the past two years around this time. He is now dealing with tendinitis in his left elbow. The pain he can tolerate, more so than the two tears he suffered in his left shoulder last year. Through the latest setback, Nordstrom keeps wrestling for Newport Harbor High. At one point last year, he couldn't compete with a bad shoulder, even if his head said he could. He contemplated snapping his shoulder, so he could put on the singlet right away.
