Listen up, Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. Orange County, which is in a budget crisis, is spending $540 million to expand John Wayne Airport.
The only way the county can recoup this sum is to increase the airport operating hours, number of flights and number of passengers.
City could use more bike racks
I applaud the installation of the bike stand at Banzai Bowls and hope it's the first of many new ones added to Orange County ("Parking it with a chain and kickstand," May 27). I have recently started running as many errands as possible using my bike, and often I have to improvise to secure it while I shop. I'd also like to see more bike lanes; I never realized how many major streets didn't have them until I started biking more.
