A second investor group, this one from Canada, has told Irvine officials that it would like to build a football stadium next to the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. City officials said they received a letter Thursday from the group expressing its interest in the fledgling project. They had never heard of the group, and didn't provide any names of investors.

Just ahead is the Pacific, which hasn't exerted a pull this strong since Lewis and Clark traveled in tandem. But a final rush to the sea would sacrifice what in many ways is the most satisfying section of this 30-mile path.

Seven bike and pedestrian trail projects were chosen by an advisory panel for the Orange County Transportation Authority out of 15 proposals competing for the non-roadway funds.

San Juan Hills Country Club in San Juan Capistrano provides a happy medium for budget-conscious golfers in South Orange County. Sure it may not offer ocean views or even cheaper green fees such as San Clemente, but you won't have to go to extremes--like 4 a.m. trips to the pro shop--to secure tee times. San Juan Hills' green fees also are more affordable than San Clemente's other public course, Shorecliffs.

Bikers, hikers and in-line skaters will be treated to a continuous trail system in Irvine if city and county officials can agree to a cost-sharing plan to complete missing links in the San Diego Creek and Peters Canyon Wash trails. In 1994, City Council members put off construction of two missing links south of Barranca Parkway because they thought the $2.6-million price tag was too steep.

Pelican Hill Golf Club, thanks to its location overlooking the Pacific Ocean along the Newport Coast, has been called "Pebble Beach South." Such remarks are usually made in promotional copy aimed at luring golfers to one of the two courses that sit on the bluffs above Crystal Cove State Park. Rob Ford, director of golf at Pelican Hill, knows the idea of such comparisons makes purists cringe. "The thing we just don't have," Ford said, "is the rich tournament history of Pebble Beach."

Schools The numbers: Thirty-one Orange County school districts, representing about 500 schools and 400,000 students, invested $1 billion in property tax revenue in the troubled county portfolio. The districts borrowed an additional $550 million to invest in the pool. Four districts outside Orange County invested $9 million. The impact: School officials say the financial crisis will not disrupt daily operations, but will force the delay of many improvement projects, such as building repair.
