Recent letters in opposition to the proposed senior center at Goldenwest and Talbert dwell on the fact that the perceived flaws in the city's sports complex are somehow related to the senior center. This is a faulty argument; the two projects are unrelated. Well over half the cost of the sports complex was due to the remediation of the contaminated soil on the site. The sports complex site was unusable for any purpose without remediation. Today, the sports complex remains essentially open space and is available for recreation, much like the Frisbee golf course across the street.

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.

DINING OUT If you have seen the reality TV program about the opening of Rocco's, a New York restaurant, you will appreciate what owners Tom Simms and his son, Chris, have gone through to present the brick-red Lazy Dog Cafe on Beach Boulevard, located just south of the San Diego Freeway in the recently renovated Target/Pavilions shopping center. The 250-seat restaurant has an energy and eagerness to please that makes it a fun place to be. The decor of well-spaced tables and booths is set off by a huge paining of a terrier named "Maggie" and paw print tabs hold the napkin-wrapped silverware.
