Dozens of nesting mallards and great blue herons, and their eggs and chicks, could be destroyed if county officials drain Anaheim Lake, a process already begun, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says. The man-made lake, water source and popular fishing hole will be drained this weekend so tractors can bulldoze the lake bed clean. But those migratory birds are threatened by the plan, said Herb Curry, a Fish and Wildlife Service agent.

Anaheim Lake provides fun for anglers, but for nearby residents, life has gotten too fishy and smelly lately. "They drain the lake every year," said Erica Kimbrough, who lives in the Vistara housing tract. "They leave the fish rotting and decomposing, and there's a horrible odor that permeates the entire neighborhood." Kimbrough said one child has taken ill, and other residents, including two pregnant woman, have complained of headaches.

A memorial service will be held Tuesday for Chlell Lawrence "C.L." Pharris, former owner of one of the largest sand and gravel producers in the country. Pharris died of a stroke at his Villa Park home last Tuesday. He was 84. Revered as an innovative businessman, Pharris began his company in 1945 with a six-wheel bobtail truck that he used to haul asphalt. He later helped design the first heavy-duty 10-wheel trucks that enabled him to haul massive loads.

It is straight up noon Thursday at Anaheim Lake, the hour and day of the weekly fishing frenzy, and Richard Paddison is fairly quivering with delicious anticipation. For nearly 15 years, Paddison, a mortgage loan officer from Anaheim, has stayed at his office late, or arrived early--or done both--so that at midday three or four days a week he can shed his business clothes, pull on a pair of jeans, drive to Anaheim Lake and go fishin' for trout.

A pilot escaped injury Monday when he brought his malfunctioning, single-engine airplane down for a bumpy landing on the dry, sandy bottom of a small lake that had been drained for maintenance, police said. Stephen Thomas, 28, of Santa Barbara said he was bound for San Diego to deliver freight but began experiencing engine trouble and had to make an emergency landing on the dry bed of Anaheim Lake while trying to reach Fullerton Airport.

Near Anaheim's northern boundary sits Anaheim Lake, a peaceful getaway spot that has become a favorite of local fishermen. "It's a good place to fish, especially for us seniors, they give us a good spot," said Virgil Goshorn, who drives from Cerritos a few times a week to tempt the lake's trout. With three poles in the water at once, Goshorn said, he almost always catches something and sometimes even the limit of five fish. The fishing registration fee is $8; for seniors and children it is $6.

It's not the ghost of Christmas Past that's haunting Orange County retailers this shopping season. Rather, it's the ghost of the late Sam Walton, the Arkansas businessman who reshaped the nation's retail industry. Walton's legacy, the Wal-Mart chain, is the nation's largest and most powerful retailer. Its financial numbers, like a football star's statistics, are staggering. It earned $1.99 billion last year on $55.5 billion in revenue.
