EASTSIDE ORGANIZES BECAUSE WESTSIDE GETS TOO MUCH ATTENTION?
Joe Bell writes the following in his almost-daily Daily Pilot column today:
"On Saturday, I accompanied a friend who lives in Costa Mesa to a picnic sponsored by the East Side Costa Mesa Neighbors Group. Here neighbors were getting acquainted in an effort to back up the officers of this new organization with determined numbers.
"The motivating force here seemed to be that the Westside is getting all the attention, and it is high time that the Eastsiders make themselves heard loud and clear, starting with an organization to carry its banner. I shook hands and listened and wished them well and ate a very good ham-and-cheese sandwich. "

The CM PRESS is glad to see the Eastside organize, but we hope this isn't going to fragment the ranks of those who want to see all of Costa Mesa improved. The Eastside does have some problems, but they pale in comparison with the problems on the Westside.
We've always maintained that if the Westside is fixed, the rest of the City will also be fixed. It's the key to improving all of Costa Mesa.
