There exist more important issues As a lifelong resident of Southern California, I have lived with airplane noise for as long as I can remember ("Costa Mesa delves into flights issue," Thursday). Airplane noise in SoCal is not going away anytime soon and I wish people would just stop complaining about it. We happen to live in the most congested airspace in the country, and it will probably only get worse. I live on the Eastside of Costa Mesa a quarter-mile from John Wayne Airport and directly under the path of the flights into Long Beach.

LONG BEACH - In an up-and-down season, there remained a few things the UC Irvine women's soccer team could count on. One was senior Rachel Wood's penalty kicks. Wood, a senior transfer from North Carolina, converted her fifth penalty kick of the season with 55 seconds left in the second overtime to cap the Anteaters' 1-0 Big West Conference victory over host Long Beach State on Saturday. It's the fourth straight time UCI (9-8-1, 5-1-1 in conference) has won the regular-season meeting between the two teams that have combined to win five of the last six Big West regular-season and conference tournament titles.

It's one of the tidiest stretches of road in Newport Beach. On one end, Mercedes-Benz hoods gleam in the Fletcher Jones Motorcars lot. On the other, a gated condo development looms from behind tall palms. Jamboree Road, with its wide lanes, absence of retail development and speeding cars, is one of the last places you'd expect to see someone hanging out on the corner. Especially if that man is homeless. For the past month or so, Nate Meador, 50, has been leaning against lampposts between MacArthur Boulevard and Coast Highway.

Newport Beach Fire Chief Steve Lewis asks himself questions every day. The rigorous self-evaluation he puts himself through runs five pages, raising issues including "Can you walk the talk?" and "Do you need to be told to do something and get punished if you do not do it, or do you choose to do something and take responsibility for it?" It's one sign of the energy and diligence he says he strives for.Lewis, 54, who was sworn in this week as Newport Beach's sixth fire chief, replaced popular Chief Tim Riley, who retired Monday after a 15-year term.
