Councilman Dave Garofalo has proposed holding several City Council meetings at various neighborhoods this year. At a recent meeting, Garofalo proposed holding the meetings at Marina and Edison high schools or Goldenwest College to better reach the community. "I think we could easily put issues on the agenda that pertain to a certain area," Garofalo said. "We need to do this at least once a year. It's the right thing to do."

A meeting between the City Council and residents of southeast Huntington Beach may be the first in a series of outreach efforts under an initiative proposed by Mayor Shirley Dettloff. After several years of hiatus, the outreach programs would offer residents a chance to bring neighborhood issues to City Council members. Under Dettloff's plan, the meetings would periodically be on Monday evenings, alternating with regular City Council sessions.

Clipper Coach Don Chaney will meet with team officials today to determine his fate for next season. "I'm not fired yet," Chaney said. "I don't think I deserve to be fired. I've already stated that this year's record doesn't reflect my coaching." The Clippers have already scheduled meetings with former Phoenix Coach John MacLeod, former New York Knick Coach Hubie Brown and former Philadelphia 76er Coach Gene Shue.

Jerry Tarkanian has spoken with owner Donald Sterling about the Clipper coaching vacancy and plans to fly to Los Angeles Thursday to continue discussions. A source close to the talks said the making of a deal is a longshot and that Tarkanian, who coached Nevada Las Vegas to the NCAA basketball championship this year, would settle for no less than an annual salary of $750,000 and other benefits.

When I think about using a PC for a virtual meeting, the first thing that comes to mind is hooking up a desktop video camera so participants can see each other. But video, according to CoWorking.com founder Bernard DeKoven, actually can make it harder to conduct a good virtual meeting. "Videoconferencing is minimally effective if all we're going to do is look at each other's faces," he said. It "was supposed to add personality and subtle meaning to meetings, but that rarely happens."
