Jeanette Pool This letter is in response to Orange County Supervisor Tom Wilson's recent commentary ("Good time to talk about Aliso Creek Plans," Coastline Pilot Aug. 6). I was appalled when I read Wilson's commentary in our local paper. I had to read it a second time to be sure what I was reading was correct. His commentary proposes using some of the Wilderness Park so that Montage can add nine holes onto the golf course at Aliso Creek. What gall Wilson and the Montage have.

Someone once spoke of three types of prevarications: lies, damnable lies and statistics. I would like to correct several items that reflect South Coast Water District?s insidious, duplicitous invocation of all three (?Reclaimed water project reduced,?

If they truly believe that there was a ?discrepancy? as voiced by their public relations employee Linda Homscheid then the fault and burden of proof rest with the applicant, not the state.

The $3.4 million center, named for the Laguna Woods couple, will be open and staffed seven days a week, and will serve as park ranger headquarters for the wilderness area. It will also be a launching pad for nature lovers who want to explore the centerpiece of the 20,000-acre coastal preserve — which stretches from Crystal Cove State Park north of Laguna Beach to Aliso Creek in South Laguna.

Don't move art museum Should the Laguna Art Museum move? Absolutely not! Did the city council not learn its lesson during the fight to keep the museum free from an outside takeover by the Orange County Museum of Art? I could also ask: "What developers have their eyes on that prime piece of property?" GAIL McCLAIN Coalition VOW to be heard We [VOW, Voices of Wilderness] look forward to working with the Athens Group proposal on its planning for the redevelopment of the Aliso Creek Inn and Golf Course.
