NEWPORT BEACH — When Renée Arst was a few years old, her father, Phil Arst, would take her to the beach sometimes and walk her around on his shoulders. From her point of view, the world looked like an enchanting place. Phil Arst no longer towered over his daughter physically as she grew older, but she remained in awe of him in different ways. She watched her father become one of the most dedicated community activists in Newport Beach. She enjoyed his adventurous spirit as he traveled the world and brought his family with him. And she saw his mettle late in life when he battled illness, underwent a liver transplant and still kept working hard.

Paul Clinton Local officials remain guardedly optimistic about an L.A. bid to resurrect an airport plan for the closed El Toro Marine Corps Air Base, although officials with the U.S. Navy say they still plan to sell the land off. "It's wait and see at this point," Costa Mesa Mayor Gary Monahan said Friday. "L.A.'s got more clout [in Washington, D.C.] than Orange County. ... I'm sure [Irvine Mayor] Larry Agran isn't too happy about it." Earlier this month, a letter surfaced in which L.A. Mayor James K. Hahn secretly asked the federal government if Los Angeles World Airports, the agency that runs Los Angeles International Airport, could run an airport at El Toro.

Joseph N. Bell (The Bell Curve, "The Game's Not Over on El Toro Airport," Thursday) makes a serious mistake to suggest that the Navy intends to avoid the zoning requirements legislated in Measure W. Selling the base property -- through a General Services Administration auction -- will end its status as federal property. Like all local property, it will be subject to local zoning. The zoning applicable to the former base property is Measure W. That means that any buyer must use the property mostly for parkland and open space, with only those supplementary uses permitted by Measure W. The only consequence of selling the property, rather than giving it away, is that a sale will put money in the Base Closure Fund.

The doughy LSTs, or landing ship tanks in military parlance, were the U.S. Navy's amphibious landing workhorses of World War II, the Korean conflict and the Vietnam War. Flat-bottomed and keel-less, the 328-foot LSTs, their guns blazing, crawled onto enemy-held beaches through sand, mud and coral reefs, opened their two massive "clamshell" bow doors and sent ashore deadly loads of tanks, jeeps, heavily armed troops, weapons and ammunition....

The Mater Dei High School boys' water polo team shatters that stereotype in the short film "What It Takes. " The movie, which runs 14 minutes, 17 seconds, is about the Mater Dei team that went through an intense four-day U.S. Navy SEAL training last June amid its quest to capture its fifth straight CIF Southern Section championship. "What It Takes" will have its screening before "Touchdown Newport," the 60-minute documentary about the 1970 Newport Harbor High School football team.
