Orange County Fair does more than fair Every year, 17 days at the Orange County Fair just comes and goes, but this year's fair has been something to remember. Kudos to General Manager Becky Bailey-Findley and her entire staff at the fairgrounds. This was indeed a well-run fair, but the kudos go to the concert lineup, the best yet to date, with something for "most" everyone. I attended seven of the 17 concerts offered, from opening night with Huey Lewis and the News to the closing night with Lynyrd Skynyrd, and in between with the B-52s, the Guess Who, Styx, Boz Scaggs and Heart.

-- Noaki Schwartz Speak Up Newport's first meeting of the year Wednesday will feature a presentation of the Newport Dunes hotel project. Tim Quinn, the director of the project, and Robert Gleason, the hotel's financial officer, will outline plans for a four-star resort hotel. The resort would include 400 rooms, 100 time-share units, three restaurants, a spa and 55,000 square feet of conference space. The speakers plan to address questions regarding traffic impact, construction and water quality.

Noaki Schwartz NEWPORT BEACH -- Operators of the Newport Dunes resort are questioning whether a proposed hotel is still worth pursuing given severe conditions slapped on them last week. City planning commissioners told the developer to erase the hotel's fifth floor and remove a third floor from a proposed time-share building that would face the Dunes marina. But the deal breaker may be the request to slice the amount of conference space -- deemed critical to attract business groups -- from 54,000 square feet to 30,000, a 44% cut. Tim Quinn, project manager for the proposed resort, said he was feeling both "shock and disappointment" in the wake of Thursday's Planning Commission recommendations.

In a court of law, we are required to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. But in the court of public opinion, a developer may present the facts as he wishes, whether it's the truth or not. Tim Quinn, who is managing the Newport Dunes Hotel project, recently wrote an article presenting the facts about the proposed hotel as he sees them ("Laying out facts about Newport Dunes resort," Dec. 14). However, a developer's presentation of a project on paper does not always pan out as described.

Noaki Schwartz NEWPORT BEACH -- Tim Quinn looked visibly drained by the bimonthly, late-night meetings that he's been sat through as project manager for the controversial Dunes hotel. So it was no wonder that he went home for a mini-celebration after the Planning Commission voted just before midnight Thursday to approve the project after a grueling, six-month review. "We feel the commission has left no stone unturned," Quinn said. "They've really done a great job."

At issue: Opponents of proposed Dunes resort say Tim Quinn should not complain about news coverage, one project supporter says hotel should be bigger. This letter is in response to Tim Quinn's letter ("Community Commentary: It should be no surprise that Newport Dunes is on public land," Apr. 1) (even though Mr. Quinn was speaking on behalf of Evans Hotels and not the community). Mr. Quinn's response and objections to the Daily Pilot article on public land were both inappropriate and predictable.

Mathis Winkler NEWPORT BEACH -- At this point, it's not much more than an interesting idea. But after the owners of the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort announced plans to sell the property last week, city leaders on Tuesday said they'd like to explore the possibility of taking over the land. "I find the issue very attractive," said Councilman Steve Bromberg, who represents the area that includes the Dunes. He added that he will ask city officials to look into the matter at Tuesday's City Council meeting.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Here is a look at stories that we think will continue to make headlines in 2001, along with an actual headline likely to appear in the Daily Pilot. City sets start date for Greenlight The growth-control debate that ranked high on the list of conversation topics among Newport Beach's residents in 2000 is set to continue right from today. The broad vision of the victorious Greenlight initiative, which will leave the final decision on certain general plan amendments up to the voters, has already become city law. The next step is for City Council members to meet Jan. 9 to discuss guidelines for Greenlight's application in real life.

Mr. Quinn's response and objections to the Daily Pilot article on public land were both inappropriate and predictable. They were predictable in that they sought to focus attention on the revenue-producing aspect of this project, which is always the mantra of Evans Hotels.
