George Grupe We are here to thank Wendy Leece for eight years of service to Newport-Mesa. I know there are thousands more who would also like to thank you. We didn't always agree with you, but most of the time we did. So often, you were the only light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. Even with five or six Newport-Mesa Unified School District board members against you, you stuck to your guns, a lady with true grit. We have often watched board members attack you in ways almost beyond belief.

While Costa Mesa is a patriotic town, it’s also a “don’t tread on me” kind of town. We have patriots who are Christians, and we have patriots who are not. It would be divisive for this community of live and let live residents if a city-sponsored motto appears to be promoting religion. If the motto is to be displayed in City Hall, Costa Mesa should follow the city of Bakersfield’s lead and signal in no uncertain terms that the intent is to encourage national patriotism, not religious evangelism.

Marisa O'Neil Newport-Mesa students are getting a chance to see a marriage between the latest technology and some of the most ancient. Beginning Monday, a webcam will broadcast live images from a special sundial atop the Newport-Mesa Unified School District offices. The dial joins others worldwide as part of the EarthDial project, inspired by the MarsDial -- currently having come technical difficulties -- on the Spirit rover. "There was one on Mars before that green guy stepped on it," joked board member and sundial enthusiast Tom Egan.

COSTA MESA — The Newport-Mesa Unified School District gave its three outgoing trustees a rousing farewell Tuesday evening, as teachers, principals and others gathered for a celebration in the district boardroom. During a special public meeting, board members Serene Stokes, Linda Sneen and Tom Egan got to be the center of Newport-Mesa's attention one last time. Former Supt. Robert Barbot, Orange County Department of Education trustee Liz Parker and a number of district employees were among those making tributes.

Christine Carrillo No design has been made. No plans approved. But talk of a possible skate park at Davis Elementary School was all the city needed to spark debate, which was exactly what the City Council wanted. Using public forums to quell concerns among opponents of the proposed park, the City Council asked parks and recreation commissioners to get responses from residents. And they did. During a meeting Wednesday night that about 35 people attended, those for and against the idea got the chance to air their differences.

The comments by Chriss Street should not be surprising to anyone ("Community Commentary: Deficit spending a bad move for U.S.," July 25). The comments by Tom Egan are surprising and seem to be more emotional than historical fact ("Sounding Off: Treasurer's arguments were shallow," July 28). President Obama is doing pretty much what he said he was going to do. The effects were easily predictable as they were, as far back as the FDR administration. Henry Morgenthau served as FDR's Treasury secretary.

As much as we in the newsroom would like to think we're experts on what's going on around our towns, I don't know that I'd bet on voters choosing us as their personal lodestones come ballot time. Editorial endorsements, such as are running today on our Forum page, are one thing; getting the personal take of an editor, reporter or even photographer seems something else entirely. Much more likely a source for keen insight would seem to rest inside our city halls, especially at the top of the heap in the city managers' offices.
