IOC THE PALM BEACH POST SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1997 Boca airport to survey pilots on rules ; Mv Mr w Jfeuff under exceptions for medical 6r business emergencies. !" The survey also will ask questions such as whether pilots found the airport convenient, accessible and pleasant, and whether runways and facilities were adequate. Pilots also will be asked if they live in the area, how often they use the airport and whether they use it for business or pleasure. j The survey would ask pilots if they knew before their arrival that the airport had strict noise guidelines and, if so, whether they found the policy easy to understand. They'll also be asked whether they were able to comply with a voluntary ban on using the airport between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. and if not, whether their reasons fell said, the airport wants to reach the rest, who may not be aware of the airport's rules. "We're trying to put the word out , that we're noise-sensitive here," Rhodes said. The rules are circulated in many national flying publications, and since the guidelines cover departures, "if they (pilots) don't know them when they get here, they should know them when they're leaving," Rhodes said. Officials want to make sure those using the facility are aware of the strict guidelines. By Eliot Weinberg Palm Beach Post Staff Writer BOCA RATON Boca Raton Municipal Airport officials will survey pilots to learn how much or how little they know about the airport's noise rules. A brochure will be distributed by the end of the month to pilots who use the airport, the busiest general aviation facility in Palm Beach County and the only one that can accommodate jets. The airport handled 146,000 takeoffs and landings last year. Most of those operations involved the same fliers, and most pilots or trainees are based locally or use the airport regularly.

Someday, Keith Richards is going to run out of sinister guitar riffs. Someday, Charlie Watts is going to miss a drum beat. ; But someday wasn't Friday. Not by a longshot. The three original members of The Rolling Stones pulled into the Orange Bowl with the traveling rockfest known as the Bridges to Babylon tour. The event, which started at 4 p.m. and ended some seven hours later, also featured se,ts by Third Eye Blind, the Dave Matthews Band and Smashing Pumpkins. '. But it was the Stones that dominated and rightly so. ; There is no other band that has come to terms with the paradox of the stadium concert better than the bad boys from Great Britain. That is, how to make a meaningful musical statement playing in a venue where even Jagger's oversized lips seem small. The Stones don't skimp on the spectacle that's an inevitable part of these affairs. Bridges to Babylon has it all, from the gold-colored inflatable naked woman to the fireworks finale. And in the truth-in-advertising department, yes, there's a bridge (more on that later). i But the Stones' real achievement is how they wed special effects to music. Or rather, how they let music dominate and the rest find its place in the mix. ;; Of course, it doesn't hurt that the band is sounding as good as ever. After coming out of the gate with a rough performance of Satisfaction, the Stones immediately found their groove and didn't lose it for the duration of their two-hour-plus set. Jagger was in his best showman form, trading one outrageous topcoat for another, strutting his way from end to end of the 177-foot stage like a short-distance runner in an unruly disco. But the voice was there, too. Stones classics (Ld 's Spend the , ft .tfi '-:K"fv-'' x- ? Craving, the song it s supposedly lifted from, is far less interesting.) The rest of the band held more than admirably together. Richards nailed song after song in his familiar devil-may-care fashion, his bracing entrances in marked contrast to his blase manner. (But longtime Stones guitarist Ron Woods still has him beat: Does the man ever wake up?) The Stones also surround themselves with considerable talent. Backup vocalist Lisa Fischer, who seems to have more thigh than leg (and loves to show it off), gave Jagger a soulful mirror to bounce off of. The New West Horns added brassy verve to songs that benefited from being kicked up another notch. As for that bridge, it appears midway through the show. Looking like a giant fire ladder, it stretches its way to a platform in the middle of the stadium floor, where the band promptly travels for a three-song set-within-a-set, including a memorable cover of Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone. Speaking of bridges, the Stones' decision to have a trio of young bands open for them was clearly an attempt to connect the dinosaur rockers with the kids. But as marketing efforts go, this one paid off handsomely. The Dave Matthews Band offered a funky hour of their down-home best. The Smashing Pumpkins provided their trademark rock with a nihilistic edge. Shock specialist Marilyn Man-son also put in a guest appearance during the Pumpkins set. Let's hope he appreciated the moment: Appearing on the same stage as the Stones is about as close as he's going to get to rock 'n' roll glory. III '( ' rvv.-:- --"i?.-- j f ,J.
