Lifeguard pay in one Orange County, Calif., city has some calling for a review.

According to a report on lifeguard pay in Newport Beach, Calif., for the calendar year 2010, of the 14 full-time lifeguards, 13 collected more than $120,000 in total compensation. One collected $98,160.65.

In an era where fiscal responsibility reigns, that has some calling for a review.

The guards are represented by the Lifeguard Management Association, and the biggest questions over the guards compensation involve pensions.
