-- Paul Clinton The Orange County Board of Supervisors is expected to grant Aloha Airlines a nearly four-year extension to operate two flights out of John Wayne Airport at its meeting today. Airport Director Alan Murphy has recommended extending leases with the carrier through Dec. 31, 2005, when the 1985 settlement agreement will expire. That agreement put into place the flight limits at the airport. Aloha was given the two flights on an interim, one-year basis on April 3. The airline began flights May 1. With the extension, Aloha would join the 10 other carriers at the airport that hold long-term flight slots.

The year's first quarterly noise report was released Friday by John Wayne Airport Director Alan Murphy. The report, covering the first three months of 2001, documents noise levels caused by departing and arriving jet aircraft on the homes and businesses under the flight path. Using 10 monitoring stations, six of which are in Newport Beach, airport officials measured the Single Event Noise Exposure Level caused by the planes. Commercial aircraft must meet noise caps imposed by the airport's 1985 settlement agreement with Newport Beach.

Passenger levels at John Wayne Airport were down more than 12%, and commercial carrier flight operations were down more than 11% from the same time last year. Fewer flights have meant less noise for people who live under the John Wayne flight path, although it’s probably only a temporary reprieve, said Melinda Seely, president of the airport activist group AirFair. “AirFair sees this as a lull, or the calm before the storm,” Seely said. “Once the economy gets back on its feet, I think it’s inevitable that the traffic at John Wayne will hike back up again.

Paul Clinton JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT -- Aloha Airlines won't be setting up shop at John Wayne Airport any time soon. In an odd twist Tuesday, the Orange County Board of Supervisors approved a five-year extension of two daily cargo flights and a potential deal that could bring the Hawaiian airline to town. But the deal is on shaky ground, after a promise from two county supervisors that they will not approve a lease with the airline if the proposed El Toro airport is part of the agreement.

At most Newport-Mesa social events the arriving guests are greeted by very attractive women serving as hostesses prepared to present table assignments and other pertinent paraphernalia. Last Saturday evening in Santa Ana the arriving crowd was greeted by a chicken, an iguana, a parrot and a snake. It was Zoofari 2007, the super fun adult’s night at the Santa Ana Zoo helping to bring in the bucks to take care of God’s little creatures. The annual Zoofari was labeled “Tango in the Tall Grass,” and was presented by an organization known as Friends of the Santa Ana Zoo. The party attracted nearly 400 guests and it is estimated it will raise nearly $80,000 net with proceeds earmarked to benefit a new habitat for the giant anteater’s exhibit.

It must have been an odd sight for the airline passengers looking out their oval windows Wednesday afternoon as they landed on the runway of John Wayne Airport. British billionaire businessman Sir Richard Branson was standing in red swim trunks and carrying a boogie board, flanked by the cast of “Real Housewives of Orange County” dressed in short skirts and stilettos, and Orange County Supervisors John Moorlach and Janet Nguyen wore business suits, all sharing the same small makeshift stage set up on the tarmac.

It's arguable that there is no better way to watch a surf flick than to sit at the sand's edge after sunset. Beyond the big-screen action, those rolling ocean waves are just a few feet away. That's why the Family Movie Nite film series in Peninsula Park at the base of the Balboa Pier has been such a summer success. "They just come in droves," said Mary Lonich, executive director of the Balboa Performing Arts Theater foundation, who puts on the Family Movie Nite. "We heard nothing, nothing but good news."
