The Newport Beach Harbor Commission is considering extending the time limit boaters can tie up to public docks, and prohibiting fishing from some of them. The commission will vote on the matter during its meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the City Council Chambers. At issue are 10 public piers throughout the harbor where boaters dock temporarily to load passengers and supplies, or where they park dinghies overnight while they stay on land. Fishermen often cast from these docks, setting up a maze of lines for sailors and power boaters to navigate.

Fourteen civil rights organizations, including the Jewish Voice for Peace and the Center for Constitutional Rights, sent a letter Thursday to UC Irvine condemning its recommendation to suspend the Muslim Student Union on campus. The groups, which represent a wide range of races, ethnicities and religions, say suspending the MSU will alienate the students, especially in the post 9/11 era. "Following Sept. 11, Muslims in America have faced intensified hate crimes, violence and discrimination, as well as racial, ethnic and religious profiling by local and federal law enforcement," the letter reads.

Physicians reported the first case for 2006 in September. “Essentially, flu activity throughout the state remains low this year, although we still recommend that you go out to get your flu shot,” said Deanne Thompson, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Health Department. “It takes two weeks after a flu shot for your body to develop its natural protection.

STEVE SMITH One of the tips that is given to students prior to taking the SAT is to use only the information given to answer a question. In other words, don't create a rationalization for your answer if the facts aren't in the question. Now hold that thought while I describe what should not be done about Newport Beach City Hall. I have believed for many years that chief financial officers make lousy chief executive officers. That is because too often CFOs are focused on cutting costs and saving money.

The study began in 1995.

As with many of its votes, the Costa Mesa City Council adopted the Homeless Task Force's recommendations with a majority on one side and a single dissenter on the other. But this time, the rebel wasn't Councilwoman Wendy Leece, who often finds herself in the minority on the council dais. Instead, during the March 20 meeting she was part of the majority alongside Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer and Councilman Steve Mensinger. Councilman Gary Monahan was absent from the 3-1 vote. "Wendy and I go way back," Righeimer said, adding that it shouldn't be surprising that they voted together on this issue.

City staff members plan to recommend that the Newport Beach council agree to outsource trash services to the company that submitted the lowest bid for the work.

An 85-page draft of the agreement has been posted on the city's website for review, more than two weeks in advance of the council's next meeting.
