Five lawsuits filed over the county's aborted plans to build an airport at the closed El Toro Marine base have been settled, the parties announced Friday. Two suits challenged the county's environmental reviews of the airport plan; two others protested the spending of $8 million for a public information campaign. A final suit questioned El Toro's inclusion in regional transportation plans.

Saying that the county can find better uses for the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station than a commercial airport, the City Council this week went on record in support of Measure S. "A commercial airport at El Toro would be devastating for us" who live in South County, Councilman Harold R. Kaufman said. "I implore everybody out there to get out and vote."

The Orange County Central Labor Council submitted a letter to Measure A proponents Friday, announcing its support of the initiative to build a commercial airport at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. The air base is scheduled to close in 1999. In June, the council's executive board voted unanimously to back the initiative, said council spokesman William Fogarty. "We think it's going to be good for creating jobs and job retention in Orange County," he said.

Orange County Supervisor Marian Bergeson on Thursday denounced the flurry of last-minute Measure S campaign mailers, accusing both sides of conjuring up "misleading" images of prisons and planes flying overhead to sway voters before Tuesday's election. The passage of Measure S would repeal a proposal to develop a commercial airport at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station when the military abandons the base by 1999.

A preliminary analysis released by a county commission Friday questions the validity of the conclusions in a report issued last month by South County cities opposed to a commercial airport at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. The county's analysis comes one day after the Southern California Assn. of Governments also criticized the South County report as containing misleading conclusions.
