In the last scene of the movie, actor Ron Cedillos is a Texas lawman-gone-bad, perched on a split-rail fence and gulping from a bottle of whiskey. Across the horse corral, karate hero Chuck Norris finally appears, already bloodied from his fist-and-foot-flying destruction of a whole town, and now, ready to face Texas City's last bad guy. "Drink, trucker?" asks Deputy Boles, Cedillos' character in the 1977 film "Breaker, Breaker."

Calling into question Orange County Supervisor Tom Wilson's anti-El Toro airport stance, one of his major supporters has abruptly canceled a Wilson fund-raiser and stopped payment on a campaign check as others demanded he defend himself at a hastily called meeting this weekend. The surprising turn of events followed a controversial vote Tuesday by Wilson and three pro-airport supervisors that resulted in the county's retaining a private attorney to represent it on El Toro issues.
