Merritt opposes Co< control of airport Negotiations may begin SACRAMENTO (UPI) — In terested parties were free today to go ibead uith negotiations for a land exchange in the area of the U.S. Naval Weapons Station at Seal Beach. Participating will be the Navy, the state, the Orange County Harbor District and the Huntington Harbor Corporation. The state Lands Commission yesterday ga\'e the Navy a go- ahead on its request to negotiate on specific lands. Weother lumtaU Temp. Z-J Sca- Hours ton County control of Redlands Airport would not benefit th city and might jeopardize airport devebpment. City Manager R. P. Merritt, Jr., asserted today in dj -i ^sreeing with regional aviation study released yesterday. Merritt staled that he could not "under any conditions agree with a Stanford Research Institute recommendation that all airports in San Bernardino County be owned and operated by the County as an integrated system. Redlands Airport was ac quired by the city for a specific purpose ... to facilitate industrial expansion," Merrit said. "If we pass authority for its development to the county we lose this ability." Merritt maintained that there would always be the possibility that the County airport authority would bypass improvements at Redlands Airport, in favor of one of the other aiiiJorts. As long as the city owns and operates the airport, we can control how fast it will develop. It will be expanded in accordance with community need, and its continuance is assured," he said. Bferritt, who doubles as city manager and airport director, further objected that the Stanford Research Institute recom­ mendation was a basic and di rect violation of the "home rule" principle. "It is the citizens' choice to determine the extent of the transportation services their community will make available. "County ownership would qui et the city's voice in this vitally needed transportation facility,' he said. The SRI regional airport study observes that state legis lation might be necessary to implement the county operated airport system. It states: "To accomplish the transfer of municipal airports to the counties, it may be necessary for the state legislature to limit, with some exceptions, the authority of a municipality to ovm and operate an airport" SRI also noted the immediate need for a "regional" airport coordinating agency with small permanent stafL Merritt agreed with the SRI recommendation that the state and the counties should acquire key private fields. "There is no threat of losing municipal airports, but the private operations are threatened because of taxation," he explained. "There is no benefit to the city that would come about by turning our airport over to the county in the forseeable future. "It will be developed faster under city control And the more attractive we make the airport within economic reason, the more attractive the city will become to vitally needed industry," the city manager ex- palined. Merritt noted that Redlands Airport became a municipal fa ciiity in 1962, and that since that time considerable work has been accomplished to develop it. The runway has been extended from 2,000 feet to 4,500 feet of which aU but 1,000 feet is paved; a complete runway lighting system has been installed; a revolving beacon has been installed; a master dcvel- |0pment plan has been prepared and been approved by the Federal Aviation Agency; all property needed to implement the master plan has been acquired; a special airport zoning to guard against encroachment by incompatible uses is being pre pared; an Airport Advisory Board has been created; an the auport has been included m the National Airport Pla which makes it eligible to re ceive federal funds for development, Merritt related that the num bcr of airplanes based at Red lands Airport has increased from 45 to 60 and that there are appro.Kimately 10,000 land ings and takeoffs annually. Many Redlanders pause to attend church services Cancer scare wears off, Cigarette sales gain By United Press International Jittery cigarette smokers may be puffing pipes in public and chewing more gum lately, but the great cancer scare appears to be wearing off. Cigarette sales, which dropped as much as 30 per cent after the surgeon general's committee drew a link between cig arettes and cancer last Jan. 11, are starting to come back. United Press International checked state tax officials and major tobacco wholesalers and retailers throughout the nation to determine what happened to cigarettes in the two and a half months since the government report threw a scare into the country's smokers. Sales are still down in many areas. But auihoritative sources in at least 12 states reported that cigarettes were starting to come back in March. In some big cities, retailers said cigarette sales were just like old times. And there were indications in other states that the drop in sales had reached the bottom and an upswing was in the making.
