City Councilman John W. Hedges said Wednesday he will challenge Tom Wilson for a seat on the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Hedges said he decided to run for the 5th District seat, in part because he wants voters to choose their representative. Wilson was appointed to the board by Gov. Pete Wilson in 1996 when Marian Bergeson became state secretary of child development and education. "Nobody should be crowned supervisor," he said.

The Newport Beach library will get to expand its American history collection after the City Council voted to spend $5,950 on the project. The council had voted in favor of expanding the library's 8,100-piece collection at its June 28 meeting. But the decision was appealed by the city's Cultural Arts Committee. Some members of the cultural arts committee said they believed the city lacked enough information about the library's current collection when it made the decision.

City Councilman John W. Hedges is proposing to share among residents a rebate that the city expects on its recycling bill. Hedges proposed the idea last year, when he was mayor, but was overruled. This year, he's trying again. The city, he said this week, is expecting a large rebate from the state. And rather than see it spent on a new project, Hedges said, he would like to see every property owner in the city get a share. "I want to return all or part of it," he said. City Manager Kevin J.
