Renaming of two City parks on Council agenda


Tomorrow night (April 25) a couple of items come before City Council that have caught my eye. Both have to do with the renaming of city parks after noted, long-time Newport Beach residents.

Item 14, under the agenda’s Current Business, calls for changing the name of Balboa Island Park to Ralph Rodheim Park. The proposal was brought forward by City Councilman Jeff Herdman. Herdman claims that many supporting this idea have approached him.

First off, Ralph was a wonderful guy who pretty much committed himself to working to improve our city. A few years back he announced that he was in a battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or more commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Ralph died February 5th.

Balboa Island Park is just down Agate Avenue from the Balboa Island Ferry landing. It’s a cute little community park that locals populate. Ralph was a local and to remember him in this fashion would be perfect. 

Okay, before we get to Item 14, we get to Item 13, renaming Ensign View Park to John Wayne Park. Mayor Kevin Muldoon is bringing this item forward.

The Mayor’s thinking is good – after all John Wayne is/was probably Newport Beach’s most famous resident. That being said, I think there’s a better spot for a park.

Around 2008 or so, there was a fairly sizable local effort to acquire a statue that resides on Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, in front of what used to be the Great Western Bank’s headquarters. The idea was to put the giant bronze statue in the “weed park,” otherwise known as Back Bay View Park, at the corner of Coast Highway and Jamboree Road.

I’ve seen the statue, it’s huge and it’s magnificent. Since I first heard about the idea, I’ve dreamed about the day it would happen.

So far, it hasn’t.

I would like to urge Mayor Muldoon to take one more crack at the Beverly Hills statue. Everything has a price and we just need to find out what it is. On a side note, after Great Western sold the building it went to Larry Flynt of Hustler fame. It’s since been sold again.

It’s time to bring the Duke home.

Elsewhere around town, oh no, another statue issue. Recently Mayor Muldoon discussed moving the Ronald Reagan statue from Bonita Canyon Sports Park to the Civic Center

I decided to take a look. At first, I couldn’t find him. Finally, when I did, I agree that if we’re going to honor a former President, we shouldn’t hide the fact. Move him to the Civic Center where he belongs.

Finally, did someone say Pickleball? Council will consider permanent courts in Newport Beach. I’ve never played, but friends love the game. Let’s get this done.

You must remember this: Old School Park


If you go by Old School Park in CdM you probably figure there was an old school there once, and you would be right. Where there are now houses there was once the Corona del Mar Elementary School. It was laid out in a very traditional fashion starting with the kindergarten, followed in regular rows by the classrooms for the various grades, ending up with the mighty fifth graders whose classrooms faced on the playground. At the very far end, in a small stucco building, was the original CdM library.

Old School Park

Immediately outside the fifth grade doors was a wide concrete area where we played jacks in season. I’m not sure how anyone knew when the jacks season started, but one day we were playing on the bars, the next day we were sitting on the concrete, bouncing a ball and trying to pick up jacks. Since I was terrible at the bars as well as the rings, I was very happy when it was jacks season. I was even happier when it was time for Red Rover. To remind you of the rules of that game, there are two teams (coed) which face each other about 15 feet apart, holding tightly to the hands of their teammates. It begins with one side calling “Red Rover, Red Rover, I dare Billy to come over.” The goal for Billy’s team is for him to run and break apart the tightly held hands of the other team. That team’s goal is to hold tight and repel him. As a game, it has a little of everything: speed, strength, even strategy. Do you call out a weak player/select a weak spot and ensure victory, or do you opt for the strong and hope for glory? Alas, I’m afraid Red Rover has gone the way of marbles and other quaint pastimes. In today’s world where every parent thinks his 6 year old is going to get an athletic scholarship if not go pro, I imagine something like Red Rover with no high school or college recognition is frowned upon as a waste of time. Much better for junior to get his priorities straight, select his or her sport at an early age and train, train, train! 

Little Corona Beach

Beachwear was rather more sedate. At first, women wore one-piece suits with structured bras and modesty panels, a piece of material running hip-to-hip and hiding the crotch. These gradually gave way to two-piece suits with boy shorts that eventually morphed into bikinis.  

As this was before companies like Quiksilver and Hurley made the scene, for men the height of beach fashion was a pair of Mrs. Reid’s. These were canvas trunks created by a local seamstress, easily identifiable by the stripes down the side.   

Hats and dark glasses were rare, and as for sunscreen, see above. The only concession to sun protection was zinc oxide, and that was only when your nose and cheeks had peeled so much they were raw.

There was also a tremendous leveling, at least at Little Corona where the regulars ranged in age from pre-teen to eligible for Social Security. Despite the difference in years, there was no stratification. You might see a middle-school kid lying in the sand talking to a judge, an unemployed artist playing cards with the owner of a restaurant empire. Everyone was equal – as long as you were a regular.  

If you were a tourist – well, that was another matter entirely. There were locals, and then there were all those other people. It wasn’t hostile. Nobody ever threw rocks or tried to chase tourists off the beach, but it was like an invisible social wall. I mean, look at them in their shoes and socks! Their pasty bodies! How could one possibly talk to such people? Would they even understand if you tried? Better to just ignore them and hope they find their way home at the end of the day.

ENC presents summer program for middle school students

ENC front view

The Environmental Nature Center will present a summer program for middle school students, called “Order of the Raven.” Beginning June 26, 2017, the eight-day-long experience is an opportunity for students entering 6th, 7th and 8th grade to learn life skills, get in touch with their innate capacity for contribution and prepare for the transitions ahead. 

Ravens will practice useful life skills such as tracking, fire making – even writing thank-you notes – in a safe, cooperative environment. “Order of the Raven” is separate from the ENC’s regular Nature Camp (where campers range from kindergarten to 6th grade). Ravens will spend a little time almost every day teaching younger campers a skill. They will learn a new skill one day, and have the opportunity to teach that skill the next day.   

“’The Order of the Raven’ teaches valuable leadership and practical skills,” said ENC Education Coordinator Corina Silva. “We are excited to encourage our Ravens to challenge themselves, explore new ideas and learn new skills.” 

Ravens will accomplish activities they couldn’t when they were younger, like performing a fish necropsy, or venturing out into the community. Focused on establishing independence in the suburban jungle, Ravens will go on walking field trips to local businesses within a mile of the ENC for “behind the scenes” tours. 

On their last day of camp, Ravens will be the Leaders in Training, assisting Camp Teachers with younger campers. Afterwards they will walk to the Newport Aquatic Center and go kayaking to celebrate. The program (June 26 - July 7) will be held 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and the cost is $450; space is very limited.

The Environmental Nature Center is located at 1601 16th St., Newport Beach. Call 949.645.8489.

An insider’s look at what’s going on, in and around City Hall


Newport Beach City Manager Dave Kiff  

I hope you get to enjoy some spring weather outside as well as the Newport Beach Film Festival inside. By Friday, it’s NOSA time and boats will be lined up for the 2017 Newport-Ensenada race. Always a nice time of year in town before we get too crowded.

But on to what’s on the Council’s agenda for April 25, 2017. More detailed Council meeting information is at the end of the Guide. I don’t summarize every item on the agenda, so make sure you look at the City Clerk’s agenda page to read the whole agenda to if you’d like.  

Study Session starts at 4:00 p.m. and has two items:

A re-scheduling of an emergency preparedness update from Katie Eing, the City’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. Learn about how the City will work with you and our loyal CERT members across town to help address virtually any natural or other disaster. We do ask that folks try to have the ability to survive without us as best they can for up to 72 hours, though.    

Members of the Orange County Water District will update us on the status of the huge groundwater basin from which we get about 70% of our drinking water. This is a big deal because as the drought officially ends (!), it’s important to factor in how replenished (or not) the basin is. Tune in please if you’re curious about the end of the drought (though it could choose to come visit us again soon!) or how we get our potable water. Fun and interesting stuff, actually. 

Regular Session is at 7:00 p.m. The items worth noting are:

Speaking of drought, it’s officially over. At least the Governor’s emergency decree has ended. That means that our water cutback restrictions can go away (resounding cheers for slightly longer showers!) but some permanent restrictions will remain in place. Such as: no watering before, after, or during rain. No wasteful watering such as hosing down of sidewalks and driveways. No watering of turf in medians (that’s for the City). But things that will go away include the 15% reduction goal as well as the limits on days/week you can water. An agenda item declares locally that the “Level 2” water use restrictions can go away.

Council members have asked that their colleagues consider renaming Ensign View Park (for John Wayne) and Balboa Island Park (for Ralph Rodheim).

Council may update its policy on invocations before meetings to more closely follow US law.

Pickleball! A contract to install the community’s first permanent pickleball courts (at the edge of Bonita Canyon Sports Park, near MacArthur) is up for consideration. If you don’t know what pickleball is, it’s like shorter-court tennis with a firmer ball (I’m sure I just wrote something blasphemous and will be corrected there). It has a growing support base in town.

Appointments to the Harbor Commission will be made. We always get such a good crop of dedicated volunteers to help out on our commissions. I know that the Council wishes that they could appoint every candidate just to honor their commitment and interest. But there are only a few slots open at any one time.  

The Council’s direct appointees – that’s the City Manager, the City Attorney, and the City Clerk – will have their contracts reviewed and possibly approved. These follow relatively detailed performance evaluations with our seven bosses. 

Today’s Random Notes:

As you know, there is a lot of work going on out there in town that can get in your way or invite questions. Here’s a brief summary of some of them.

Irvine Avenue seems almost done – the landscaping is in and the road’s repaved.

Give it a nice slow drive and hear how quiet the new pavement is – ooo, nice. 

We’ve redone landscaping at the “Mixmaster” area near the Newport Pier (where Balboa mixes with Newport Boulevard). It’s colorful and California-friendly. Looks a lot better than the dead grass of last year. 

Ocean and Poppy in CDM is still impacted by major road repairs there – the sidewalk and trees are being replaced, and next will be the new road surface. This has more weeks to go.

Since the rain ended, crews have made a lot more progress in Big Canyon Nature Park (off of Jamboree between Park Newport and Eastbluff). This is an environmental restoration project that also helps remediate naturally occurring selenium in that small watershed. The grading causes it to look fairly stark right now, but that’s because we haven’t started replanting things yet. 

The Park Avenue Bridge (between Balboa Island and Little Island) is coming along, and that long project is also nearing completion in a handful of weeks. 

We are in Week Seven or so of the FAA’s implementation of NextGen in our community. NextGen made more precise flight paths from JWA (and nearly 2 dozen other airports in Southern California). April 27th is another important day for NextGen locally, when the other 50 percent of JWA’s flights may be placed on the NextGen paths. Generally, these track the historic patterns of flights from JWA. Please know that we will follow this closely to ensure that the community’s overall goals are met. However, the FAA always has the final determination on where flights go. If you ever want to talk NextGen with me, I’m happy to do so – just call.    

We were notified that the Marina Park project will be honored with a national public works award for 2017. That’s a pretty big deal for us. An even bigger deal is the nice everyday use that the park gets from the Peninsula and other neighbors who have long deserved a great park there. Congratulations to our City Public Works team, the designer (Rabben/Herman), the contractor (KPRS), the construction manager (Griffin Holdings) and to every one of our community members (like the Protect our Parks members as well as former Harbor Commissioners) who spent years (yes, years) working on a compromise plan that the community could embrace.

As always, thanks for reading. Please forward this Guide to family, friends and members of your HOA if you represent one. I always like hearing from you, too, so please don’t hesitate to ask a question or offer a comment.

Letter to the Editor:

Peotter keeps changing his mind

Wow, the recall is only two weeks old and already Scott Peotter has had four positions. First, he said the recall was to inhibit his “free speech”. When one considers that Peotter’s own extraordinary efforts to prevent residents from circulating petitions on the Museum House project was the greatest denial of free speech in recent city history, that argument quickly went away.

Then he said it was about him “keeping his promises” to cut city spending.  But the record shows that under Peotter, pension liabilities are up $70 million, the operating budget is up $22 million and because of him, we now run the sewer system at a structural deficit. His debt reduction strategy actually cost $20 million more than doing nothing and he arranged for a man later convicted of embezzlement to be placed on the Finance Committee. Not a lot of credibility there Scott.  

Next, he hooked up with liberal Democrat Bob Rush as his chairman and claimed he was being recalled because he was “politically incorrect”. Well yes, supporting the racist Farsi campaign signs, opposing the city Sexual Harassment Prevention policy, and insulting residents who speak before the council is politically incorrect, but it is also unacceptable behavior as a member of the city council. Rush was perhaps surprised to find that Peotter opposes nearly all of the capital improvements needed for West Newport and the Peninsula where Rush is an activist.

Now he is wrapping himself in the Republican banner, hoping voters will not notice that the 14,000 residents who signed the Museum House petitions were overwhelmingly Republican and that Peotter alone among the council is using his position to collect compensation from four public agencies.  

The real issue is that Peotter trampled on our constitutional rights and he refuses to obey the laws he swore to uphold regarding leaking confidential information, campaign finance and the municipal code. He is controlled by Dave Ellis and serves the special interests who moved him into town to run.  

Who knows what Peotter’s slogan will be tomorrow? Here are some we know he won’t be using: “Scott Peotter: Working to reduce traffic and improve our quality of life,” “Peotter: Champion of parks and libraries,” “Scott Peotter: He respects the public.”  

It’s time for a change on the city council.

Carol Boller’s painting titled “Waiting”

A modern classic is being sent to the home of classics. The Art in Embassies (AIE) announced a new painting by local artist Carole Boller has been chosen for the Embassy in Athens, Greece. 

The invitation came from Geoffrey Pyatt, the new U.S. Ambassador to Greece. As a primary focus the Ambassador said, “I chose Boller’s artwork because it perfectly fits my desire to feature work from my home state of California. It brings a strong sense of beauty and vitality to its environment.”

“I’m thrilled to have my work in this prestigious embassy art collection,” Boller said. “I delight in painting Southern California culture, the use of leisure, vacation, beach time, and, how this playful use of our ocean environment ranges from peaceful, to bold adventure.”

Boller is an international artist not only painting abroad, but also traveling up and down the coast of California painting on location. She has paintings in the Antibes, France Muse, as well as, in private collections in England, Italy and, of course, many in America.

 Her paintings are rendered primarily in oil and are known to capture the essence of their locations. 

In Laguna Beach, now her hometown, she has created several murals for the City’s Public Collection. 

Prior to her move to Laguna, she lived and worked in Newport Beach. There she owned a working studio/gallery and served for many years as an appointed Arts Commissioner. 

Want to paint with her? She gives bi-weekly classes at Wilma’s on Balboa Island.

Upcoming Events & Workshops

Assemblages, Continuing through May 26. The Newport Beach City Arts Commission is presenting an exhibition by architect Ron Yeo in the Central Library lobby gallery. The exhibit, titled “Assemblages,” aptly coincides with Earth Month, and features a series of art projects created out of recycled bottle caps, plastic tops, action figures and other assorted objects that Yeo gathered on his morning beach walks. Transitioning from architecture to art, Yeo turned to the collection of bottle caps that he had been saving for many years. Inspired by the urban (junk) art of Patrick Amiot, Kenny Irvin & Schickentzanz, he decided to put them to use by developing this series of art pieces. With his wide variety of caps, he has been able to assemble an interesting blend of colors and patterns in a whimsical display that captivates art lovers both young and old. Central Library, 1000 Avocado Ave., Newport Beach. 949.717.3800.

Central Library art lecture series to feature Marcel Duchamp

Beyond the Canvas: Marcel Duchamp, April 26 at 7 p.m. Award-winning professor Jacqueline Hahn will continue this fascinating art lecture series on legendary artists’ lives and artistic movements. Marcel Duchamp was a French, naturalized American painter, sculptor, chess player and writer whose work is associated with Cubism, conceptual art and Dada, although he was careful about his use of the term Dada and was not directly associated with Dada groups. Duchamp is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture. Duchamp has had an immense impact on 20th-century and 21st-century art. By World War I, he had rejected the work of many of his fellow artists (like Henri Matisse) as “retinal” art, intended only to please the eye. Instead, Duchamp wanted to put art back in the service of the mind. This event is free; seating is first come, first served. Sponsored by Friends of the Library. Central Library Friends Room, 1000 Avocado Ave., Newport Beach. 949.717.3800.
