El Toro would help during the Big One New Orleans residents knew the Big One -- a Category 4 or 5 hurricane -- could flood and destroy their city. Yet, when Katrina hit, they were not prepared. Orange County residents live with the threat of the Big One too. Only our fear is an 8 or bigger earthquake ripping open the earth. Are we fully prepared? One area of concern is our lack of airport runways for life-saving purposes. John Wayne, Long Beach, Los Alamitos and Fullerton airports are on soil subject to liquefaction during a major earthquake.

The local coastal plan process used by the city of Newport Beach could have been greatly improved, and this may have sped up the process. The city agreed to a timetable for the plan because it needed a special law sponsored by then-state Sen. Ross Johnson that allowed Newport Coast to be annexed by Newport Beach but still stay under Orange County rules so it could keep the land-use plan that covered Newport Coast prior to annexation. The city unfortunately had missed its obligations to the Coastal Commission prior to the annexation and needed this special law. Newport Beach has had a very good process for Vision 2025 and the update of the general plan, but the local coastal plan was excluded from that process although it has many parallel issues, including land use and completing the bicycle trail along the beach from 36th Street to the Santa Ana River, which is part of the California Coastal Trail.

Church has simply become too big I have lived in the Harbor Highlands and Dover Shores area of Newport Beach since 1975. I once taught at Newport Harbor High School and have attended church services and musical concerts at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. I am opposed to the proposed expansion of St. Andrew's even though my own neighborhood would not be affected. The church is simply a victim of its own success. I feel it has become too big for its site.
