WHAT'S BEHIND IT: Flights out of John Wayne Airport take off headed out to sea until released by the Federal Aeronautics Administration to turn back over land. After the closure of the U.S. Marine Air Base at El Toro, some commercial airliners began flying over Laguna Beach at an appreciably lower altitude, making the inland turn earlier, which saves time and fuel. Residents were told that new technology made the earlier release possible.

At the Prelude Assembly, kids listened to violinist Dana Freeman and storyteller Linda King Pruitt, learned about composer Sergei Prokofiev, and heard excerpts from famous works, including "Romeo and Juliet" and "Peter and the Wolf." Freeman will teach in the coming months, and other activities are scheduled, including a performance at the new Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

Last week was brutal, in traveling terms. Flying home after spending the week in Sayulita, Mexico, I stopped in Phoenix to go through customs and then go on to John Wayne Airport, getting in about 10:30 p.m. After a week of sunny and warm weather, I was blown away when I arrived late that night into cold, rainy weather. Home for seven hours, I had enough time to sleep for six hours, pack a different duffel bag with some warmer clothes and catch my flight for New York at 8:10 a.m. Exhausted, I jumped in my car, driving in the early, freezing cold and drizzly morning.

Complaints that commercial planes are flying lower over Laguna more often than in the past have been dismissed by the Federal Aviation Administration, but city officials heard differently Tuesday night. The City Council voted unanimously to appoint council members Steve Dicterow and Toni Iseman to work with the public to pressure FAA about the noise. Residents are urged to contact the FAA and to provide letters with specific instances of airplane noise impacts to the FAA and the city.
