In an effort to avoid overcrowding, the City Council has approved the first major overhaul of the city's General Plan since it was created in 1969. The council Tuesday unanimously approved a general amendment to the plan, which reflects a movement toward lower-density land use in certain areas, particularly the city's north-central corridor. It also expresses the city's commitment to seek "better-quality development," said Harold O. Johanson, director of planning and community development.

It was nearly two months after the cease-fire and weeks after the top Marine aviator in the Gulf War had returned home when his wife finally confronted him. "I am mad at you for flying those missions," Pat Moore told her husband, Maj. Gen. Royal N. Moore Jr. "What would have happened if you had been killed?" Moore, commander of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing at El Toro, flew more than a dozen combat missions during the war--a decision he made, he said, because "you lead from the front."

Even as Harry Blot was getting a second star pinned on the collar of his Marine Corps camouflage utility uniform Friday morning, the general was already looking past that promotion to higher goals. "The nice thing," Blot told a crowd of high-ranking officers at the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, is that his promotion to major general puts him in line "for other jobs I would like to get." The 52-year-old aviator cast a quick glance at his current boss, Maj. Gen. Royal N. Moore Jr.
