What the late Jim Dilley saw during a stay in England in the 1960s helped focus a dream for a corridor of open land around Laguna Beach known as the greenbelt. "Jim returned from Europe with the idea of doing a greenbelt here," said Mary Fegraus, Laguna Canyon Foundation executive director. "He got the support of a lot of people in Laguna Beach and the Board of Supervisors.

A federal judge Tuesday removed the last legal obstacle to construction of a disputed stretch of a South County tollway, and transportation officials immediately dispatched bulldozers to begin work on the road. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Linda H. McLaughlin allowed the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor Agency to start working on 4.6 miles of roadway that cuts through the environmentally sensitive Laguna Greenbelt between Newport Coast Drive and El Toro Road.

In old newspaper articles, Jim Dilley is quoted as calling himself "quixotic, carried away with the cause." His dream? To ring the city with 10,000 acres of open space. Dilley concocted the idea of a "Laguna Greenbelt" 23 years ago, a dozen years before he died of cancer in 1980.

Laguna Greenbelt Inc. is gratified that you find us newsworthy enough to include in a letter caption, "Laguna Greenbelt Mistaken Identity" (Feb. 23), but take exception to your having done so in this case. Thomas Alexander, who made the mistake, did not refer to his past association with us in his letter. That irrelevance was supplied by Van Stephens and gratuitously amplified by The Times. The Times should be more careful about attributions and captions, especially those with the potential for embarrassment of our, or any other, organization.

Re "El Morro Residents Labor to Stay Put," Jan. 24. The El Morro trailer park has floated a new scheme to allow the trailers to stay in Crystal Cove State Park beyond the expiration of their lease at the end of 2004. In the packet sent to the press, the names of two non-profit organizations were listed as beneficiaries of supposedly excess revenues: State Parks Foundation, a state-wide organization that supports state parks; and Laguna Greenbelt, Inc. The Board of the Laguna Greenbelt Inc. wishes to reassure our supporters and members that we want nothing to do with this proposal other than to see it defeated.

As a supporter of Laguna Greenbelt Inc. from 1968, I was very interested in your editorial, "A Park for the Ages"(April 1). The Aliso and Woods Canyon Regional Park will be a living memorial to James W. (Jim) Dilley, who was once described by your newspaper as "The improbable leader of the impossible dream." He truly turned out to be the man from La Mancha, and we are all grateful for his leadership and foresight. HARRY A MOON Laguna Beach
