The dimly lit Five Crowns dining room in Corona del Mar with its low ceilings and brick fireplace became a shrine dedicated to old-fashioned conservative nostalgia as Barry Goldwater Jr. paid homage to his late father, who championed a conservative philosophy that his son rarely sees in today’s political discourse. The former senator from Arizona and unsuccessful presidential candidate stood for a conservatism marked by less government involvement, lower taxes, and fewer rules and regulations, his son reminisced at a Newport Beach Sunrise Rotary Club breakfast Tuesday, ideals the present Republican leadership has all but abandoned, he said.

Deirdre Newman An environmental report on the potential widening of Newport Boulevard says the project will have minimal negative effect on the entrance to the city, but some residents feel the project will not accomplish the touted benefits. The proposed project calls for improving the traffic and pedestrian conditions on Newport Boulevard from 17th to 19th streets by adding a fourth northbound lane throughout the area and adding a fourth southbound lane from the end of the Costa Mesa Freeway to the intersection with Broadway.

Teen club is 'disgusting' I think the shorts being handed out at OC Platinum are disgusting and debauched and they're risque for any human being, and I can't believe this article ("'Sex sells' for teen club, promoter says," Monday). It's terrible. I am really saddened by the world. I feel sorry for these people and especially these parents who would allow their children to engage in such behavior.   CECILY WHITE Costa Mesa Teacher deserved story's tribute What a great article that the Pilot's intern, Heidi Schultheis, wrote for this wonderful, dedicated teacher (Here's to Mrs. Dickson," Sunday)

Jennifer Kho COSTA MESA -- As part of the city's planning for the future, community leaders Tuesday met to lay out what they like and dislike about the city's two library branches, which are run by the county. The meeting was the second in a series set up to recommend guidelines for future library services. "I'm really excited about this group," said Mayor Libby Cowan, who is heading the group but plans to phase out her leadership. "They're really beginning to come together.

Again, I opened your paper to Mailbag (Nov. 17) only to read another letter about the loss to our children and to us since Wendy Leece no longer is able attend to her conservative agenda on the Newport-Mesa Unified School District Board of Trustees. I now felt the need to address why I voted for Tom Egan. Let me preface this by stating that I have lived in the city of Costa Mesa for 27 years. My three children all attended the schools from the beginning and graduated from Estancia High School.

Deirdre Newman Tom Egan's victory last month over incumbent school board member Wendy Leece illustrated the potent power of the teacher's union, which rallied its troops and spent about $6,000 to unseat an adversary it had battled for years. The Newport-Mesa Federation of Teachers only backed one challenger -- Egan -- along with incumbents Judy Franco and Serene Stokes. It put all three endorsements on one slate, raising Egan's profile by association.

Deirdre Newman As the clock winds down for school board hopefuls and incumbents to declare their candidacy for the November election, many of the races are heating up. All three trustees who are running for reelection -- Serene Stokes, Judy Franco and Wendy Leece -- will face at least one challenger. Jim Ferryman, whose term also expires at the end of the year, opted not to run soon after he was convicted of driving under the influence in an incident in September.

The fuss about Costa Mesa Mayor Allan Mansoor's lack of compassion, after a resident in a nice neighborhood was gunned down, would be amusing if it weren't so predictable. Are we really that surprised that the mayor used the death of Israel Maciel to promote his political agenda, instead of pausing for a moment to show some sense of sadness or to vow that the city would not rest until his killer was brought to justice? Why on Earth would we expect even an ounce of compassion from a man who led the charge to eliminate the city's human relations committee, which cost a whopping $1,800 a year to operate, or who cannot see for a moment the tragedy of his handling of the illegal immigrants living in the city?

Four years ago, in the run-up to another election, one of the races for a seat on the Newport-Mesa Unified School District board offered a virtual test case of an issue-driven contest. Tom Egan and incumbent Wendy Leece were on opposite sides in virtually every point of educational philosophy. Thus voters were offered the kind of clear choices that should drive every election. And seldom do. Now, four years later, the same pair are still going in opposite directions — but not against each other.
