Julie Folcik was placed on paid administrative leave "pending a personnel investigation," city spokesman Bill Lobdell said. City CEO Tom Hatch authorized the move, and acting Deputy City Clerk Christine Cordon will take over Folcik's duties, Lobdell said, adding that he could not comment on why she was put on leave so long after the mistake.

The Daily Pilot recently published a letter from John Heffernan, who announced his candidacy for a seat on the Newport Beach City Council from the 7th District. Heffernan gave his opinion why there weren't more candidates running for office. Heffernan's letter started out fine, then he complained about the paperwork, the disclosures and the scrutiny. Oh, great, I thought, another candidate who doesn't get it. Those elements -- paperwork, disclosure and scrutiny -- are the three plagues of any candidate and, eventually, any officeholder.

The Daily Pilot editorial on Sept. 23, "Keep a critical eye on endorsements," again raised that issue. Speaking for your firefighters and paramedics, nothing could be further from the truth.   Proposition 75 would not have changed anything for us, except the volume of paperwork our members had to complete and our association had to store for years and years.

People have two extra days to settle up with the IRS this year, but to local tax preparers, that's just another two days people will procrastinate. Paying the proverbial "man" is something many people do not look forward to, which could be a reason that some people wait till the last minute to look at the paperwork or call their tax preparer. But for some it likely also has something to do with organizational skills, said Dave Tax, a 20-year veteran of the tax business in Newport Beach.

COSTA MESA — The Costa Mesa Planning Commission on Monday backed away from restricting garages at apartment complexes after concerns about them being converted into residences arose. Initially proposed as a three-phase program — which included certifying garages aren't being used as residences, limiting future garage inspection and increasing community education — the commission whittled it down to an education-only effort. "I think education is going to be the only way that anything constructive is going to come of that," Commissioner Sam Clark said.

Dozens of incensed residents said the continuance was outrageous, and questioned the commitment of Newport Coast Recovery to be a good neighbor if they didn’t even make it a priority to comply with the city’s request in a timely fashion.
