The Drug Abuse Resistance Education program will go by the wayside in Costa Mesa, and two police officers will be back on the streets. The Costa Mesa City Council decided Tuesday to cancel funding for the program, known as DARE, because the school district already has drug education in its curriculum and studies have questioned the effectiveness of the program.

However, recently there have been many coyotes around, even during the daytime hours (“Coyotes are on the prowl in hillsides,” Mailbag, Wednesday).
