Seeking approval for Hidden Creek Ranch, a 3,200-home project north of Moorpark College, a developer is offering the City Council an incentive: up to $12.8 million toward construction of a bypass to route California 118 traffic around town. Gary Austin, vice president of Messenger Investment Co., said the development company is negotiating with the city to pay $4,000 per house in fees the city could use for any transportation project. If all 3,200 homes the developer plans are built, the $12.8 million would cover much of the $24 million to $28 million that a bypass is expected to cost.

Casitas Springs is a small residential community. We have no political power. Thus, we continue to suffer 28,000 cars per day passing through our community. Like slaves, we can be mistreated without consequence. Something must be done! We applaud slowing growth in our beautiful Ojai Valley but don't appreciate the fact that the burden has fallen on our tender backs. For safety and sanity we need a two-lane bypass--now. Still, despite worse traffic and many accidents, our tiny bypass project remains third on the county list.

On March 26, the Irvine City Council voted 4 to 1 (Paula Werner dissenting) to approve construction of the 1.5-mile bypass/extension of Newport Coast Drive, which will cost taxpayers $10 million ("Tollway Bypass Wins Council Approval," March 28). Many citizens had requested that the city delay its decision until after a lawsuit challenging the inclusion of Newport Coast Drive in the San Joaquin Hills toll road is heard by the Orange County Superior Court in September. If the court finds that the tolling of Newport Coast Drive is illegal (a very distinct possibility)

Timm Rosenbach of Washington State, the nation's leading passer last season, will pass up the NFL's regular draft to take his chances on a supplemental draft in early summer. Rosenbach's agent, Gary Wichard, said today that he made the decision so that the fourth-year junior would be treated--and paid--like a No. 1 draft choice "rather than a guy taken sixth or seventh, depending on how things fall." Today is the deadline for players who still have eligibility remaining to declare themselves for the April 23 draft.

Key safety systems were bypassed or disabled on the doomed Deepwater Horizon drilling rig — some for months or years — a top technician on the vessel testified Friday, as offshore cleanup crews hurried toward port ahead of a tropical storm system. In testimony in the third round of investigative hearings in Louisiana, a rig technician described an operation in which alarm systems and safety devices were turned off, computers didn't work and maintenance was long overdue.

The story about the proposed Admiralty Place development west of Lincoln Boulevard at the Marina Freeway (Times, Nov. 5) mentions the possible construction of the Marina Bypass as one measure to accommodate the increased traffic. Unfortunately, the story spoke of a Marina Bypass extension to Admiralty Way. Such a road from Lincoln Boulevard to Admiralty Way would in no sense be a bypass, but would instead dump a great deal of additional traffic into the Marina, onto already overcrowded Admiralty Way. What is urgently needed is the true Marina Bypass as it has been shown on the county's Master Plan of Highways for a generation, extending from Lincoln Boulevard not into the Marina but northwesterly to Washington Street, avoiding the Lincoln/Washington intersection.
