El Toro airport is a must-have for the county
Everything is not being done to ensure the extension of the John
Wayne Settlement Agreement. We need El Toro airport, and that's all
there is to it. It's the biggest scam in the history of Orange
County, what they did to us with El Toro. We should make the Navy
take it back and rebuild it and then give it back to us as a full on
Study of 19th Street bridge
just makes good sense
Your Tuesday question regarding the 19th Street bridge issue is
misleading. The question that was being asked in the Community
Redevelopment Action Committee was whether or not to do a study on
how having a bridge would affect the area from several points of
view, including traffic, not whether to build a bridge.
As a person who lives near enough to be impacted by this bridge,
and who has another family member who lives even closer to the
designated study area, I vote a resounding "yes." However, what I am
saying "yes" to is a study to see what the impact would be on our
area, with a decision to be made from knowledge. Right now we do not
have this knowledge.
While I do not live on 19th Street, if I did I would want to be as
fully informed as possible. Right now a lot of these folks are living
in limbo not knowing whether to "flip to fly." Should they improve
their properties or give up and move to Irvine? Certainly the study
shouldn't be shouted down by those who have an agenda or preconceived
notion pro or con regarding a bridge. How about just letting us have
a look at the facts.

I suppose I shouldn't complain. When my wife and I moved here more
than 12 years ago, there wasn't much more space than there is now.
