You eliminate a popular column (Natural Perspectives) written by Huntington Beach residents, on matters that concern many Huntington Beach residents, and what do we get instead? On Dec. 6, what we got instead was two columns from people who live in Newport Beach, another column from someone who lives in Costa Mesa, and a column on the Newport Beach boat parade from the Daily Pilot. Huntington Beach is also bordered by Westminster and Seal Beach — will they be represented in the Independent next week?

Assemblyman Allan Mansoor (R-Costa Mesa) told a conservative group Monday that he believes his Republican opponent in the June 5 primary will bow down to unions and special-interest groups in Sacramento. During a Surf City Tea-sponsored forum in the Huntington Beach Central Library, Mansoor said Newport Beach Councilwoman Leslie Daigle, who is running against him in the 74th Assembly District race, supports unions and raising taxes.

Vic and I attended the Newport Beach Film Festival this past weekend. Naturally, Vic and I focused on environmental documentaries. We saw three films, "A Fierce Green Fire,""Last Call at the Oasis,"and"Bitter Seeds. " "A Fierce Green Fire" is based on the book of the same name. The film explored the history of environmentalism from John Muir's failed attempt to save the Hetch Hetchy valley north of Yosemite from being dammed, up to today's battle to slow global warming.

"It means a lot," Wilson said.
