The proponents of the Park and Wildlife Initiative have conceded defeat in their efforts to gain sufficient signatures to qualify their initiative for the ballot. It seems that their assessment of the overwhelming public opposition to Jackson Drive that would fuel their efforts was wrong. Citizens for Jackson Drive tried to tell them that last fall, but it was a message the opponents stubbornly refused to hear. The fact is that the citizens of San Diego, and the 7th Council District in particular, want traffic solutions.

It may have taken Alan Jackson a dozen years of country music stardom to finally get a No. 1 album on the pop chart, but he's holding on to that spot. His "Drive" is the nation's best-selling collection for the third consecutive week. The album sold 189,000 copies last week, giving it a three-week total of 842,000 copies, according to SoundScan. That was enough for an 80,000 lead over Creed's "Weathered," which remains No. 2. The next seven spots on the Top 10 remained steady from last week.

Environmental and neighborhood activists took aim again Thursday at the city of San Diego's traffic-control plans, suing the city--for the second time this year--in an attempt to halt the four-lane extension of Jackson Drive through an urban park. Updating a suit filed originally in January with new claims of environmental damage and fiscal waste, the activists filed suit seeking to stop the 2.4-mile link through Mission Trails Regional Park to California 52.

Alan Jackson has broken Creed's eight-week hold on the nation's pop album chart. The veteran country music star's "Drive" collection entered the sales list at No. 1 on Wednesday after selling 423,000 copies in its first week in stores. Jackson has been turning out million-selling albums for more than a decade, but this is the first time one of his albums has gone to No. 1 on the pop chart.

Deer, coyote, bobcats and endangered birds roam freely in the 5,700-acre Mission Trails Regional Park on the eastern boundary of San Diego. It's a pocket of wildlife covered by the rare coastal sage scrub where hikers and bird watchers can enjoy the serenity of the pristine mountain park. City officials have proposed a 2.

The much-debated proposal to extend Jackson Drive through Mission Trails Regional Park was killed Monday when funding for the project was dropped by the San Diego City Council. The council's 6-2 vote doomed the project that was left moribund in December, when a San Diego Superior Court judge issued an injunction limiting the city's action on the roadway to applying for federal permits. Opponents obtained the injunction after convincing the judge that building the 2.

An environmental impact report is supposed to be an "alarm bell" that alerts both the public and its responsible officials to serious consequences before a project has reached the ecological point of no return. Unfortunately, the alarm wasn't working when the San Diego City Council recently approved the 2.5-mile, four-lane extension of Jackson Drive through Mission Trails Regional Park. The council also failed to heed the warning of environmentalists who pointed out the report's shortcomings.

Civil rights groups will publicly confront Democratic senators and demand that they vote against Sen. John Ashcroft (R-Mo.) for attorney general. The Rev. Jesse Jackson said lawmakers will be confronted at public events--such as Martin Luther King Day activities--this month. Ashcroft has been known for his staunch anti-abortion stand and for leading a drive to kill the nomination of Missouri Supreme Court Justice Ronnie White, who is black, to the federal bench.

A San Diego judge issued a ruling Monday that in effect halts the proposed four-lane extension of a highway through an eastern San Diego urban park, adding a legal roadblock to an already politically vulnerable project. In a significant victory for environmentalists and neighborhood activists, San Diego Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Miller issued an injunction forbidding the city from doing anything more than seeking federal permits for the project, a 2.

In chastising the opponents of the Jackson Drive extension project (Letters, Aug. 25), Councilwoman Judy McCarty has totally mischaracterized the reasons for the withdrawal of the Parks and Wildlife Protection Initiative from circulation and greatly distorted the facts regarding the environmental review process for this project. Mrs. McCarty says "the fact is citizens want traffic solutions." The "fact" that was clearly demonstrated and ignored by the mayor and City Council on the narrowest of 5 to 4 votes last year is that the extension of Jackson Drive through dedicated parkland is not a cost-effective traffic solution.

Nearly halfway through a 200-day signature-gathering drive, the effort to overturn the San Diego City Council's 1990 vote to extend Jackson Drive through Mission Trails Regional Park is faltering and may be dropped if financial backing cannot be found, leaders of the initiative said Thursday.
