An attorney for the Orange County Fund for Environmental Defense asked the state Court of Appeal on Tuesday to block construction of a 23-building biomedical facility on a site surrounded by the Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park. The attorney argued that the county Board of Supervisors violated state law by failing to require a second environmental impact report (EIR) before approving the Nichols Institute project in 1986. The appeal court justices took the matter under submission.

In recent months, articles in the media have referred to the "drawbridge syndrome" supposedly suffered by certain homeowners-cum-environmentalists. Other articles have accused us of liking birds and wildlife better than people or riding roughshod over the Fifth Amendment, which prohibits the taking of private property for public purposes. I would like to address these issues. First, those who want to profit from their land are not the only property owners in Southern California.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors gave unanimous approval Tuesday to a nearly threefold expansion of a controversial quarry mining operation near the Cleveland National Forest, rejecting arguments from environmental groups opposed to the scope of the project. The decision, ending more than a year of debate, allows the Ortega Rock Quarry to tear down a 3,700-foot-long ridge in Lucas Canyon, expand its operation to 96 acres and build a concrete processing plant on the site.

The ecologically aware came with their children and ideals in tow Sunday to celebrate Earth Day at the Upper Newport Bay Ecological Reserve and Regional Park. For six hours, young and old alike filed in and out of the carnival-like setting to visit booths and exhibits and to experience a hands-on approach to honoring Mother Earth.

They spend their waking hours poring over government documents and environmental reports, praying that somewhere deep in that mind-numbing mass they will spot a clue for saving Coal Canyon, or Newport Bay, or Bolsa Chica, or Laguna Canyon. They prepare for weeks and sit for hours in dreary meeting chambers so they can spend five minutes addressing city councils and planning commissions.

After years of being accused of having no environmental heartbeat, Orange County is showing signs of life. The Huntington Beach oil spill, malathion spraying over much of North County and final development plans for Laguna Canyon have all fueled public concern and spawned a new collection of activists--even politicians--pushing environmental causes.
