I have talked a lot about our Costa Mesa libraries and their history and tried to get more people involved in the quest for larger facilities that allow for expanded services for our residents. So now, I am trying another tack. As you read this, remember that Costa Mesa has less than 17,000 square feet of library space and 113,000 residents. The city of Yorba Linda's library dates back about 100 years to 1913, when the first library opened in a small room of the school. Four years later, it was moved to a building by itself.

The Costa Mesa Pop Warner Jr. Pee Wee Green team is headed to the playoffs, but it wasn't easy. The Mustangs had to come up with a defensive stop against Yorba Linda in the final 10 seconds and they got it to pull out a 7-6 win over Yorba Linda. On fourth down with less than 10 seconds left and Yorba Linda deep in Mustangs' territory, Yorba Linda's quarterback threw a pass but Brett Farthing jumped in front of the receiver and batted the ball away to preserve the win. Costa Mesa's defense played staunchly all day with Eric Brown sacking the quarterback twice and Chris Gute adding an interception.

ANAHEIM - A reporter asked Jeff Brinkley for his thoughts on Kai Ross and it drew a short response from the Newport Harbor High head football coach. He preferred to talk about his Sailors, not the Huntington Beach  player who again proved to be the difference against his team. Everyone on the field seemed to want to talk about Ross, or to him. He finally appeared with his jersey and shoulder pads off, shortly after leading his Oilers to a 42-28 victory and the program's first CIF Southern Section championship in 78 years.

Paula Renteria has been making burritos and serving scrambled eggs and hash browns for more than two decades at the Los Angeles Times' Orange County plant cafeteria in Costa Mesa. But on Friday the cafeteria will close, and she's going to bid farewell to the many reporters, editors, pressmen and advertising folks who have relied on her for meals between deadlines. Since 1988, Renteria has been an anchor behind the counter, patiently taking orders, smiling and never visibly in a bad mood — even in the presence of the hurried employees who work for the Los Angeles Times, Daily Pilot and related publications.

Costa Mesa Councilwoman Wendy Leece finally got what she wanted Friday morning when workers installed the “In God We Trust” slogan in the Council Chambers at City Hall. The sign’s installation was stalled two weeks in a row — once because the sign-maker drilled an extra hole into it, and another time because the letters forming the slogan weren’t up to standard. The sign is now affixed to a chamber wall beneath the city’s seal. “We could’ve done it earlier, but we wanted to make it just right, so they went back and reposted the lettering to ensure that it would look perfect, and now it’s perfect,” said Tom Hatch, the assistant city manager.
