To the delight of horse owners worried that the stables at El Toro Marine base would close, Orange County supervisors Tuesday approved a lease with the U.S. Navy that allows uninterrupted use of recreational facilities there. Board Chairman Charles V. Smith said he has been assured by Navy officials in San Diego that the lease will be signed before July 2 when the Marines leave the base for good. "The Navy is agreeable right down the line," Smith said.

Capping a six-month drive, opponents of the proposed El Toro airport on Tuesday turned in more than twice the number of signatures needed to qualify their Safe and Healthy Communities initiative for the March ballot. Leaders of the drive said they filed 192,298 signatures with the Orange County registrar of voters--delivered in stacks of cardboard boxes. The petition needs to be signed by only 71,206 registered voters to qualify for the ballot.

Commercial jets flying to and from El Toro Marine base last month blasted some south Orange County areas with noise and went almost unheard in others, according to a county report released Monday. Much of the information duplicates sound levels recorded by observers and airport foes during the demonstration of large jets that are expected to use a new international airport being planned at El Toro after 2005.

Forces grappling over the fate of a commercial airport proposed for the former El Toro Marine base will spend $14 million of public money this fiscal year just to promote their positions--nearly the amount spent in the previous five years combined. The money is being used by pro- and anti-airport cities and Orange County for various media consultants, lawyers, public-relations companies and lobbyists in Sacramento and Washington.

Re "El Toro: A Planning Nightmare," Orange County Voices, April 15: It was very pleasing to read City Councilman Bob McGowan say that he is recommending Villa Park withdraw from the Orange County Regional Airport Authority over the "ill-conceived abomination," as he so aptly puts it. With regard to an airport built for safety, he is pragmatic. The airport configuration he is interested in is less than likely to win appeal with the proponent cities' own constituents. Watch for cities like Tustin, Orange and Anaheim to bail out next.
