The new $45-million passenger concourse at Long Beach Airport (LGB) will open Wednesday, months earlier than expected at the site that's been a landing strip in Southern California since the 1920s. The 1941 Art Deco airport building will be enhanced by the new concourse that adds 35,000 square feet of shops and eateries, gate arrival and departure seating as well as a garden area in the middle with palm trees and other plants. The ribbon-cutting is set for 5 p.m. Wednesday. Anyone who has flown in or out of Long Beach in the past year will be relieved to be done with the temporary structures that offered cramped seating in gate areas, outdoor portable lavatories and a super-small bar/store.

There is not a whole lot about the Dodger Stadium renovation that the Dodgers haven't already discussed, so Tuesday's news conference mostly focused on the details. Which is probably good, because anyone who glanced out the Stadium Club windows at the construction going on and considered the big picture would have to wonder how it can possibly be completed in time for the Dodgers' March 28 exhibition game against the Angels. The giant holes inside each foul line remain open, and the stadium remains cut out to the loge level.

The new $45-million concourse at Long Beach Airport has opened its doors, giving passengers their first look at a project 10 years in the making. Scores of travelers - arriving and departing - made their way Wednesday morning through the 35,000-square-foot eco-friendly structure, with its rows of palm trees and native plants in an open courtyard. The new terminal is also equipped with a fire pit and lounge chairs. The food area inside the northern concourse offers samples from Long Beach restaurants.

It happened all too often in recent years, especially when the UCLA basketball team played host to an opponent from the Midwest or the East Coast. Rival fans would travel across the country and, upon stepping inside the Bruins' legendary arena, would look at the narrow hallways and odd dimensions, the wide-open spaces behind each basket. And they would ask variations of the same question. This is Pauley Pavilion? Really? INTERACTIVE: Panoramic views inside Pauley Pavilion For all its tradition, UCLA's home court had fallen behind the times, squeezed into a narrow footprint, lacking the bells and whistles of a modern sports facility.

If smokers are entitled to specific areas or lounges at airports ("Trying to Steer Clear of the Smoking Lounge," Her World, April 21), the same should apply for those who do not want to be bothered by music at airports. Enjoying music (and we do) does not mean you want to hear it all the time and anywhere. At Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport, the music was so loud in the concourse that we could barely hear the television in our boarding area. If you want a quiet and peaceful area to relax or read a book, forget it. NICOLAS and MICHELE DZEPINA Mission Viejo

After years of controversy and a court battle involving local schools, the Long Beach Airport is moving ahead with a $136-million improvement project designed to modernize the facility without sacrificing its historic Art Deco terminal or reputation among travelers for convenience. The project also satisfies community groups and city leaders who worked to scale back earlier proposals, which they feared would have weakened the city's noise ordinance that limits commercial and commuter flights at the airport because of surrounding residential neighborhoods.

May 8, 2005 | Michael Webb, Michael Webb last wrote for the magazine about an artist's studio in the Hollywood Hills.
The house that Zoltan E. Pali designed for Sean and Hsiu-Yen Brosmith is tailored both to the needs of their young family and the spectacular site overlooking the San Fernando Valley. It's also a Modernist classic that recalls the simplicity and clarity of the Case Study houses, which created a new blueprint for indoor-outdoor living in the postwar decades. Sliding glass doors, shaded by an overhanging roof, open the 5,100-square-foot house to the pool.

The push to overhaul restaurants, beverage stands and gift stores at Los Angeles International Airport took a major step forward Monday when a special City Council panel approved three retail contracts to a joint venture that features former Lakers star Magic Johnson and the widow of attorney Johnnie Cochran. The five-member Board of Referred Powers voted 4 to 1 to give the contacts to a partnership involving the Hudson Group, Magic Johnson Enterprises and Concourse Ventures, which is headed by Dale Mason Cochran.

A good day for the UCLA basketball program started before players even took the court. Hours before the tip-off against Arizona State, the Bruins athletic department received two unexpected donations of $100,000 each for the upcoming renovation of Pauley Pavilion. Ross Bjork, a senior associate athletic director, said the gifts were part of a recent uptick that has pushed fundraising for the project to almost $62 million. "There's a buzz around the arena," Bjork said. "Lots of activity."
