A Corona del Mar High School security guard says Newport Beach City Councilwoman Leslie Daigle threatened to have him deported or fired for trying to enforce a school rule, an allegation Daigle denies. Daigle said Thursday the guard misunderstood her response when he ordered her off the school track last spring. "He said to me, 'I'm going to kick you out,' and I mimicked what he said to me," she said. Daigle said it took her by surprise to be told she couldn't jog on the track.

The company has received complaints from the neighbors about contractors starting their grading work prior to 7 a.m. (the article erroneously reported that it was the blasting of bedrock, which never occurs in the morning hours)

A split school board recently asked how much it would cost to post armed guards at campuses in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. In a 4 to 3 vote Tuesday, Newport-Mesa Unified School District trustees asked administrators to find out the price tag for armed security at a single elementary school or high school - something that could scale districtwide. In interviews after the vote, trustees emphasized the exploration doesn't mean they'll eventually put guns in the hands of guards, but the idea was distasteful enough to some board members to vote against even finding out the price.

COSTA MESA — The Planning Commission on Tuesday approved the creation of a task force that will attempt to address homelessness in the city. The task force, adopted after a unanimous vote, will have two commissioners and various community members. The commissioners chosen for the task force will be decided at the next meeting.

Security guard Virgil Piece was the only one who showed up to work Friday morning at the DMV in Costa Mesa, but he didn’t go into the building. The doors were locked, and he sat outside of the Westside office in a folding chair under an awning to stay out of the rain. Pierce was the security guard charged with telling distraught motorists that the office was closed because California forced many of its workers to stay home a few days a month so that the cash-strapped state can save some money on payroll expenses.
