Kathy Courtney of Laguna Niguel opined that El Toro is a "done deal" and that we should "move on." However, I have the feeling that had Measure W lost, she would be carping for even yet another vote. In fact, that's been happening over the past eight years. After four tries, El Toro opponents finally were able to simultaneously pass an initiative and have one court uphold it. Now they want to silence dissenting opinions. Maybe El Toro is indeed a "done deal."

Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- The El Toro airport debate may be raging in South County, but its not flying here, as only two residents showed up Tuesday for a meeting at City Hall on what many consider to be the most pressing land use issue in Orange County. Locals should be concerned about the fate of the former Marine base, said Peggy Ducey, executive director of the Orange County Regional Airport Authority, which sponsored the meeting, because building an international airport will have a "ripple effect" throughout the county.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Huntington Beach, as expected, took care of business Friday night. Now, the Oilers can turn their full attention to El Toro. Huntington set up an early-season showdown in the chase for first place in the Sea View League Friday by defeating visiting Woodbridge. The Oilers used a big second half to pull away from the Warriors to win for the fourth time in as many league starts, 62-48. The victory put Huntington at 17-3 overall and sends the Oilers onward to a Wednesday game against defending league champ El Toro.

The Sea View League boys? basketball race will be decided tonight. The Huntington Beach Oilers made certain that the title chase would go to the end of the regular season by scoring a thrilling, 67-65 overtime victory over visiting El Toro before a full house at Huntington. The win moved the Oilers to 7-2 in league and pulled them to within a game of league-leading El Toro, which suffered its first league loss in falling to 8-1. A win by the Chargers would have allowed them to repeat as league champion.

Huntington Beach coach Eric Lo said during preseason camp that the first three games of the season would tell him a lot about his 2011 football team. Games against El Toro, Corona del Mar and Foothill, two of whom were the Oilers' rivals when they belonged to the Sea View League two years ago, figured to test Huntington right out of the gate. Lo did learn something Friday at Cap Sheue Field: his team can win the close one. Huntington never trailed against El Toro but the Oilers had to withstand a barrage of passes - 55 of them - from Chargers quarterback Conner Manning, and a late comeback attempt, to post a 23-21 season-opening victory.

HUNINGTON BEACH - At about the midway point of the third quarter of Tuesday's CIF Southern Section Division 1A boys' basketball game between Huntington Beach and El Toro, it appeared that Huntington was about to make a game-changing move on the visiting Chargers. Trailing throughout the second-round contest, the Oilers, who had been outmaneuvered and outgunned for much of the night, got to within nine points of the El Toro lead. It was then, though, that the lights were turned out for good by the Chargers.

Just four games in, and the Sunset League baseball race is full of suspense. Marina High Coach Paul Renfrow might be the least surprised. “This is my 27th year, and nobody’s ever won the league undefeated,” he said. The same will be true this year, although Edison (3-1 in league) does have a showdown at Newport Harbor (also 3-1) at 3 p.m. today. The winner will take outright possession of first place in league — but there’s still a long way to go. Edison 5, Fountain Valley 1: The Chargers rebounded from a loss to Esperanza on Friday, topping their rivals Tuesday at Edison.
