I am supporting Ken Genser for reelection because he has been a mayor who represents the entire city. I have seen Genser fight to protect my Sunset Park neighborhood from overdevelopment and traffic. He has shown that he is committed to fighting crime and preserving public safety by consistently supporting our police and firefighters. BARBARA BROWN Santa Monica

Officials from the National Transportation Safety Board  are expected Monday morning to begin investigating the wreckage from a jet crash at Santa Monica Airport that authorities believe killed all passengers on board. Authorities have offered scant details in the wake of the crash, in part because of trouble accessing the jet.   A twin-engine Cessna Citation coming from Hailey, Idaho, veered off the right side of the runway Sunday night and crashed into a nearby storage hangar, authorities said.

Coroner's officials have yet to sift through the charred wreckage of the crash of a small plane at Santa Monica Airport this weekend as they await special equipment to clear the heavily damaged site. Fire officials said the crash -- which occurred about 6:20 p.m. Sunday when a twin-engine Cessna Citation coming from Hailey, Idaho, veered off the right side of the runway and slammed into a nearby storage hangar -- was unsurvivable. Both the hangar and the jet burst into flames, officials said, and the hangar collapsed.

Hours after a business jet crashed into a hangar at Santa Monica Airport, the chairman of an advisory commission renewed a call for city officials to reduce operations at the airport in the name of public safety. The fiery crash occurred about 6:20 p.m. Sunday, when a twin-engine Cessna Citation coming from Hailey, Idaho, veered off the right side of the runway and crashed into a nearby storage hangar. Both the structure and the jet burst into flames, officials said, and the hangar collapsed.

When Lorrai Brown graduated from Hollywood High School, she felt ill prepared to rush into life at a four-year university. "I wanted to come to Santa Monica College first and . . . learn my basics," Brown said. Now in her second year, she hopes to transfer to USC or UCLA once she earns her two-year associate of arts degree. Tens of thousands of students like Brown have gravitated to the school, widely viewed as the crown jewel of the Los Angeles area's community colleges.

With proposed commercial development at Santa Monica Municipal Airport under attack from almost every conceivable direction, city officials are now scrambling to see if the project can be salvaged at all. At the very least, the project seems certain to be scaled back considerably from what the Santa Monica City Council approved on Oct. 10--an 822,000-square-foot development composed of six office buildings of six stories each and four parking structures in the airport's eastern corner.

A sprawling commercial office and retail project next to Santa Monica Municipal Airport is getting smaller and smaller. The Planning Commission Thursday voted 4 to 0 with one abstention to reduce the project, to be known as Santa Monica Common, to between 600,000 and 750,000 square feet from the 1 million square feet to which it had been reduced earlier.

Opponents of a recently approved commercial and retail office project at Santa Monica Municipal Airport have launched a referendum drive to force the City Council to reverse its approval of the 822,000-square-foot project or put the matter on the ballot. Santa Monicans for the Public Trust, the community group organizing the referendum drive, has until Nov. 10 to collect 5,644 signatures, 10% of the city's registered voters.

The Santa Monica City Council has closed the book for now on a three-year controversy over plans to build a large commercial office project on city-owned land at Santa Monica Municipal Airport by deciding not to pursue the project. The council voted 4 to 2 Tuesday night to accept a recommendation by City Manager John Jalili to drop the matter for now because the city staff was too busy with other projects to come up with alternative proposals in time for the November city election.

Designer Julie Hart was smitten with the Sunset Park neighborhood of Santa Monica and its quiet streets lined with California bungalows. Many of these homes were developed during the '30s and '40s when McDonnell Douglas had a plant on Ocean Park Boulevard, and a few former employees still live in the area, as well as a growing number of young families with children. Hart saw the neighborhood's potential.
