John Wayne Airport's redesigned website and 2004 annual report have earned airport officials accolades for their communication skills. The airport announced Thursday it has received a first-place award for last year's annual report and a second-place award for its website, www.ocair.com, from the Airports Council International of North America. John Wayne was one of 54 airports competing for airport council awards. It's the fifth time John Wayne Airport has been recognized by the airports council for its communication and marketing.

From time to time, the opinion pages of Orange County newspapers are dotted with letters penned by holdout veterans of the El Toro airport wars. Only rarely now are they followed by bemused rebuttals from those who won their Great Park. Persistence is admirable, but only to a point. Eventually it becomes pitiful. That aside, what's to become of John Wayne Airport over the next 20 years and beyond is an entirely different matter, and one that's far from settled.

Construction for an expansion project approved last October for John Wayne Airport could begin before the year is out. Airport spokeswoman Jenny Wedge said an exact timeline for construction has not been set. Workers could begin the expansion this fall by reconfiguring a facility used to store aircraft that stay at the airport overnight. Wedge declined to give cost estimates since that data has not yet been released to all members of the Orange County Board of Supervisors.

Maybe it's a campaign ploy, but John Graham, one of 17 candidates to replace former Rep. Chris Cox, is resurrecting the suggestion of a commercial airport at Camp Pendleton. Although Graham may be the first of the candidates to bring airport issues into the campaign, with the history of the proposed El Toro airport and the future of John Wayne Airport fresh in voters' minds, he's not expected to be the last. The candidates are vying to represent the 48th Congressional District, which includes Newport Beach, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, Aliso Viejo and Tustin.

Dry heat returned to Newport-Mesa Wednesday, as Santa Ana winds swept through inland Orange County, pushing temperatures near beach communities into the 90s. Wind gusts peaked at 25 mph at John Wayne Airport, but the blustery Santa Anas kept their distance from the beaches, said National Weather Service forecaster Stan Wasowski. A red-flag warning of high fire danger plagued the mountains and canyons, but did not affect any areas in Orange County, Wasowski said.

When did parking become the problem? Regarding Aug. 29's Daily Pilot story, "Triangle Square to refocus on fashion," this is just the most recent in a series of news reports about efforts, so far unsuccessful, to restore Triangle Square to some semblance of its former glory. And in response, I've got to say there's something fishy going on here. I was at the grand opening of Triangle Square more than a decade ago. I recall seeing Richard Branson, Virgin's CEO, cavorting in a hot tub with the Baywatch babes.

In the days after an Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputy was killed in a Huntington Beach car accident, a colleague remembered him as a “stand-up guy” who brought a cheerful attitude to work and devoted himself to the department’s youth program. Terry Stepp, 44, of Wildomar died Saturday evening at UC Irvine Medical Center shortly after a one-car accident near the intersection of Goldenwest Street and Pecan Avenue, according to news reports. His father-in-law, Huntington Beach resident David Kerr, was a passenger in the car and died at the scene.

I want to start by saying that I feel both the Newport Beach City Council and city staff deserve a giant round of applause and a thank you for all their work during this month of August. Whether you agree or disagree with their decisions, I don't ever recall so many meetings on so many items in the same month. Due to all the happenings in Newport Beach, it has been difficult to choose any one particular topic. To begin with there is the expansion plan at John Wayne Airport -- scheduled to open by May of 2010 with a price tag of $512 million.

Andrew Wainer Huntington Beach art instructor Greg Daly's modest, low-key demeanor can't hide his teaching acumen -- his students have won too many awards. This week, two of his students won first prize in their grade levels in a statewide art contest, just a small example of awards Daly's students have racked up in the past two years. "These students have natural talent," Daly said. "I just give them the opportunity to use it." On Tuesday, two officials from the state Department of Boating and Waterways visited Daly's Dwyer Middle School art class to present the awards.

A helicopter made an emergency landing in the parking lot of Huntington State Beach on Monday morning after the pilot noticed smoke coming out of its electrical equipment. No one was hurt in the landing, authorities said. The Huntington Beach Fire Department responded to the emergency landing at Pacific Coast Highway and Magnolia Street after receiving a call from John Wayne Airport about it, said Deputy Fire Marshal Bob Culhane. Culhane originally said there was only the pilot in the helicopter but later said there were two people on board.

The drive to another airport is never easy, even at 10 p.m. in the middle of the week. As you read this on Saturday morning, my wife and I are in New York exercising one of the following options: We are celebrating the return of the home field advantage to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. We are marveling at the pitching skills of Randy Johnson who led his team to victory Friday and all but assured a Yankees series victory. We are about to attend the game that was supposed to be played Friday night but was rained out. Although we have five tickets for the game, we came to New York not to see the Angels in Yankee Stadium but to celebrate the 60th birthday of my brother, Michael.

Just last week, we wrote that we wanted to stand out in the wind and rain to cover hurricanes like TV reporters. We've changed our minds. Print media will do just fine for us, thank you. As circumstances would have it, we caught the tail end of Hurricane Rita as it swept over the Midwest. While Rita was churning toward the Gulf Coast last Thursday, Vic and I flew to Indiana for the burial of my mother's ashes. We were supposed to change planes in Chicago to go to Indianapolis.

The rain, thunder and lightning that hit Southern California on Tuesday should be gone by today, and Newport-Mesans can look forward to brighter skies, according to the National Weather Service. "It'll just be some low clouds in the morning. It will be mostly sunny," weather service forecaster Don Whitlow said. Hurricane Max, a Pacific Ocean storm west of Mexico, likely contributed to the rumbling storms that lighted up the sky late Monday and into Tuesday, Whitlow said.
