Airport aims to speed up the lines
December 17, 2014
An $18 million project approved this week will dramatically change the security checkpoints at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, officials say. The goal is to speed the lines of airline passengers through security and reduce average wait times. The project, approved by the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) on Monday, involves consolidating four existing security checkpoints in Terminal 1, also known as the Lindbergh terminal, into one big security checkpoint with 10 lanes, said Patrick Hogan, MAC spokesman. The new mega-checkpoint will provide more space for conveyor belts carrying passengers' carry-on bags past scanners. There also will be added room for passengers exiting the checkpoints to put back on their shoes, belts and jackets.

LETTERS
May 08, 2014
Coercion It is a reprehensible betrayal of the public trust for a public utility to threaten to withhold life-sustaining service, thus rendering legally uninhabitable the home of a paid-up citizen, over the generation of their water meter. This unthinkably inappropriate strong-arm tactic is not only way out of proportion to the supposed "crime," it is a callous abandonment of the utility's responsibility to the rate-paying public.

All's Well that Ends Wells
January 01, 1970
FULL TEXT Citing a rush on new well applications in response to the ongoing drought, Montecito Water District officials have requested the county impose an emergency moratorium on the requests. The mere announcement served to accelerate the demand with seven new applications submitted the day the story surfaced last week. District manager Tom Mosby argued the moratorium is necessary so long as the emergency drought conditions persist. Mont?alos groundwater basins, notoriously small to start with, are exceptionally hard to manage when the county is approving additional wells, he said. (The district does not issue well permits; the county's Department of Environmental Health Services does.) Last year, there were 13 applications. Not counting the latest seven, there have been 70 this year. How many of these have been drilled remains unclear. There are roughly 600 permitted wells within the Montecito Water District. Three dozen of them have failed in the past two years, Mosby said.
