Re " 'Open Space' Doesn't Always Mean Forever," Jan. 17: I remember 10 years ago being in a carwash lobby, waiting for my car, and seeing a photo of south Orange County taken almost 50 years ago. The amount of available land has been constantly shrinking and, with Montage resort setting its sights on the Aliso & Wood Canyons Wilderness Park for yet another golf course, one wonders when enough is enough? The county owes it to the citizens, and the citizens owe it to the environment, to leave this (and other parks)

Authorities at Lake Tahoe on Monday solved the mystery of a scuba diver who disappeared 17 years ago in the mountain lake's deep, frigid waters. The well-preserved body of Donald Christopher Windecker was discovered July 23 on an underwater shelf, 265 feet below the surface. A remote-controlled mini-submarine with a robotic claw raised the remains July 27. The recovery occurred on the lake's west side, near Rubicon Point. Officials delayed releasing Windecker's name until dental records confirmed his identity.
