WILMINGTON AIRPORT Search group ends interviews Officials hope to announce a new airport director for the Wilmington airport in about two weeks. New Hanover County Airport Authority Member Carter Lambeth said the search committee has finished interviews with the three candidates and hopes to announce a decision soon. Al Roseman, chairman of the authority, said he expected a decision would be made in 10 to 14 days. The airport has been without a top official since Will Plentl Jr. stepped down for personal reasons in early November.

Coalition Proposes Simpler Tax System

BY Curt Anderson

WASHINGTON -- The bewildering federal income tax system should be replaced with something simpler and far less burdensome, a coalition of interest groups and two senior House Republicans said Thursday. Like previous such efforts, this one faces an uphill fight. The 19 organizations that form the Coalition for Fundamental Tax Reform favor different solutions ranging from a flat, single-rate income tax applied equally to all taxpayers to the replacement of the income tax with a national sales tax.

New Air Rules Already Help City

Stringent new environmental restrictions on Houston are already paying off for Corpus Christi. On Wednesday, the day that the state approved the restrictions, H.E. Butt Grocery Co. scheduled an announcement that it will spend nearly $4 million to expand its bakery and tortilla factory at 102 McBride Lane, instead of building one in Houston.

Trolleys a first-order folly The Metropolitan Transit Authority's plan of laying "streetcar tracks" down the middle of Main Street is a folly of the first order. Tracks are very expensive and the work on them has to be "in place," which is a problem that is upsetting to all traffic downtown. A design requiring detours would not be in the interest of the designers, political or otherwise. Tracks can also be a driving hazard in rainy weather.
