SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' The latest battle for control of Alcatraz Island is under way.

The National Park Service and organizers of the America's Cup sailing race are tussling over the role Alcatraz will play during the Super Bowl of yacht racing. The park service submitted 22 pages of comments and concerns about the environmental impact the series of races will have on the Golden Gate National Recreation Area that it manages.

Alcatraz is part of the area.

The San Francisco Planning Commission is scheduled to consider the city's draft environmental impact on Dec. 15.
