In my 27-year career as a city administrator, it has been necessary to correct a false statement or a misstatement by a reporter only on two or three occasions. Such an event occurred in the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, Nov. 16, in an article written about Proposition A on the Newport Center expansion. A direct quote attributed to me said, "But how do you say no when they (Irvine Co.) hound you and hound you? You can't." This statement is totally untrue. I never said it. The only comment that I gave was that I couldn't participate in the video during regular city working hours and that it had to be filmed, therefore, after 5 p.m. I am at a total loss as to why your reporter interpreted my statement as quoted in the newspaper.

Wynn's departure brings to a close a public-administration career that has spanned 35 years, 20 of them in Newport Beach. "It isn't what it used to be. More and more people are becoming critical of government, critical of authority," Wynn, 60, said. "Look at all the claims (seeking money from the city) we get. When I first started, if we got a claim a month it was a conversation piece.

Friday was the last day to apply for the city manager's job, with well over 100 people seeking the post. A consulting firm, Ralph Anderson Associates, hopes to narrow the list to 20 names or less by the end of November, officials said.

In a letter of complaint filed Monday with City Manager Robert L. Wynn, a residents' group supporting the Irvine Co.'s planned $300-million expansion of Newport Center charged an opposition group with making false statements. William P. Ficker, chairman of Citizens for a Better Newport, claimed in the letter to Wynn that Gridlock, a group opposed to the expansion project, had made "false or misleading arguments" in its ballot statement for the Nov. 25 special election on the center expansion.

The City Council heard complaints about waste this week. Not toxic waste, hazardous waste or even the waste of taxpayers' money, but old-fashioned dog droppings. And now the ducks on Balboa Island are adding to the problem. Earlier this week, a resident told the City Council that he was tired of a city ordinance that prohibits dogs on the beach during the summer months.
