Jenny Marder Residents are calling for the resignation of the second Planning Commission chairman in eight months. Former Chairman Randy Kokal was forced to resign in September after he failed to follow protocol when appointing a vice chair for the group. Now, an active group of residents want to oust Ron Davis from the position for joining their chat group under a false name. City Hall gadfly Mark Bixby thought it strange when a man he'd never heard of, with an intimate knowledge of the city, began posting e-mails on a local message board.

A Huntington Beach man accused of e-mailing death threats to Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach will be evaluated for mental problems next week, according to prosecutors. Lawyers have been negotiating a plea bargain for Steve Van Arroyo, 50, for a couple months and it looks like the case may end in Santa Ana court next week, officials said. Arroyo was arrested in January on suspicion of sending e-mails to Moorlach threatening his life, his family’s and four other supervisors.

Internet nastiness invaded City Hall this week when a small contingency unsuccessfully demanded the resignation of Planning Commission Chairman Ron Davis. This whole ugly debate is a no-win situation because both sides are wrong. It begins with a group of community watchdog types having an online chat about how they think planning commissioners have violated the Brown Act by having individual meetings with staff members about various projects.

The Bible doesn't say don't believe everything you hear or read. It does, though, quote Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew as saying, "Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves." Jesus was speaking to his 12 disciples, but from the context, I have a hard time reasoning that he meant his advice to stop there. R. T. France, in the Tyndale New Testament Commentaries series, wrote that "the principle is relevant to Christians in all ages who must live and witness in a hostile world."

Jenny Marder Planning Commission Chairman Ron Davis will not cede his city seat, despite some residents' demands Monday night that he do so. The discovery that Davis was using an internet alias to post e-mails regarding a Planning Commission debate on a local message board has triggered a rush of name calling and fiery debate. Critics have called Davis unethical, dishonest and offensive. Those backing the commissioner condemn the e-mail group as gossipy and exclusive.

EDITOR'S NOTEBOOK Enough is enough. The people have spoken -- and continue to do so. Since the City Council decided to cancel the Fourth of July fireworks this year rather than move the display to a barge four miles off the city beach, Huntington Beach residents have come forward in droves to voice their displeasure with the decision. Council members opposed to fireworks at the beach cited safety concerns, rehashing the riots of yesteryear. And while celebrating crowds in Downtown Huntington Beach were the root of problems in the past, the riots in no way related to the fireworks.

Jenny Marder A measure meant to unify the city with its yellow ribbons has instead caused a deep, but subtle rift and prompted a flurry of hate mail to the sole council member who questioned the ribbon campaign. Since questioning and opposing a measure that would cover the city in yellow ribbons, Councilwoman Debbie Cook has received several dozen nasty e-mails, calling her a number of degrading names. The e-mails, mostly from people outside the city, were prompted by the California Young Americans for Freedom, an ultraconservative group that is spearheading the yellow ribbon campaign to support U.S. troops.

A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail alert, as I do whenever the words "Huntington Beach" appear in an online news story. From Associated Press, no less, it read in part like this: "HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Nonresidents who cause car accidents in Huntington Beach could be paying some big bucks under an ordinance approved this week. " The news blip was referring to the fact that the City Council had just approved a recovery program in which non-Huntington Beach residents would have to pay for emergency response services for car accidents, car fires, and pipeline and power line damage that they were found at fault of causing.

Dan Kalmick has a solid month of campaigning ahead for the Huntington Beach City Council. But as far as he's concerned, a single day may make or break his candidacy — and it's not the day before the election. Rather, Kalmick has his sights on Oct. 9, a day he's set aside to round up 50 or more supporters and walk neighborhoods throughout Surf City to hand out fliers. The day before, he plans to drop stacks of letters in the mail, so that when voters open their boxes Oct. 9, his message will be waiting for them.

Just as she has done for the last 50 years, Jean Hylton, 85, on Monday walked into the small, buttercup-yellow, one-story building on Pacific Coast Highway between 10th and 11th streets. The building wasn't always yellow — it recently underwent a much-needed spruce that is almost done. The only thing missing is the sign on the front that reads, "Sunset Beach Post Office. " In navy jersey pants, a matching nautical striped shirt and large black sunglasses with her blond, curly hair, Hylton just stopped in to pick up her mail after running to the store like she does any other day. But the simple task can't be done without running into someone she knows.

Computers are in almost every classroom and many kids are comfortable on one before they know how to read, but that wasn't always the case. Huntington Beach senior Rich Kolander didn't grow up knowing how to send an e-mail, "poke" his friends on Facebook or create an Excel spreadsheet because his generation "wasn't born with the computer next to their crib," he said. "We grew up listening to the radio," he said. Kolander learned to use computers through his job as an engineer, but many seniors have never learned those skills, and it is for them that the Michael E. Rodgers Senior Center offers several classes on a variety of computer skills.

Residents packed the room, spilling out into the streets, for the Sunset Beach Community Assn.’s first meeting with Huntington Beach officials to discuss the possible annexation of the small beach community Sept. 3. Association members have met with Huntington before, but this was the first time Mayor Keith Bohr, City Administrator Fred Wilson and Councilman Don Hansen attended one of the community’s monthly meetings since Sunset was put under Huntington’s sphere of influence in early July.

The Sunset Beach Community Assn.’s monthly meeting at 7:30 tonight at the Women’s Club is expected to play host to special guests. The association has invited Huntington Beach Mayor Keith Bohr and City Administrator Fred Wilson to the monthly meeting. Bohr said he wants to start fresh with the community. Huntington Beach is working on a financial analysis for annexing Sunset, but Bohr said that whichever decision they make, he wants everyone to be happy with it. Annexation is on the table after the Orange County Local Agency Formation Committee put the community under Huntington Beach’s sphere of influence July 8. The move opens Sunset up to annexation, because if Huntington chooses to file to annex Sunset the Orange County Local Agency Formation Committee could not deny them, only amend their application, committee officials said.

Holding signs with “Unfair,” “Bring Back our Mail Lady” and “No Job, No Pay, No Proof,” 24 residents gathered in front of the U.S. Postal Service on Warner Avenue to protest the suspension of their mail carrier at a rally Saturday. The rally was to support a mail carrier who was taken off her route when a neighbor filed a complaint when two cats went missing. The neighbor called the police to allege that the mail carrier stole their pets, according to a police report.

What started out as an apparent snub turned out to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher’s advantage after President Barack Obama’s recent visit to Costa Mesa. Obama alerted the audience last week at his town hall meeting at the Costa Mesa fairgrounds that Rohrabacher was not there, prompting a cascade of boos from the largely Democratic crowd. But the president quickly calmed the crowd, asked them to applaud Rohrabacher, and noted that it wasn’t Rohrabacher’s fault. He said his staff didn’t get the invitation in the mail on time and the president took the blame.
