After inspecting the state-owned beach north of the Huntington Beach Pier on Monday, State Parks Director Henry R. Agonia downplayed the possibility of the state giving the land to the city. But Agonia said the state will try to help Huntington Beach find more money to maintain the beach. "Obviously there is some concern on the part of the city about funding," Agonia said.

I just had to write regarding "Case of the Vanishing Coastline" (May 9). Dear friends, you don't have to be a marine geologist or coast engineer or the Wizard of Oz to know why there is no sand at the beaches. It's all being ruined, before the rivers can dump any into the ocean. Plain and simple. Hop in your little car and drive California 76 along the San Luis Rey River bed and count and photograph the sand removal operations you encounter. It's enough to make you sick. RONALD QUIRK Julian

The city's canine population has won its day in the sun. The City Council voted unanimously Monday to lift a summer ban on dogs on the beach. Beginning next summer, dogs will be allowed on the beach year-round before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. In the past, they had not been allowed at all from June 15 to Sept. 15. In other action, the council agreed to move forward with a plan to consolidate its commercial waste operations. The city now uses 13 independent haulers to collect commercial refuse.

After threatening to suspend county beach services in Hermosa Beach after Labor Day, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors this week voted 4 to 0 to give the city a 60-day reprieve. The supervisors decided last month to cut off its lifeguard and beach maintenance after the Hermosa Beach City Council refused to pay more for the services. But the supervisors agreed to extend its deadline to Nov.

As city officials work to see if homeowners have paid new annual fees stemming from the controversial policy established last year on beach encroachment, some property owners have proposed a route around the costs. The homeowners propose to donate the land to the city for open space instead of paying the annual fees now charged owners of property that takes up part of the public beach next to their homes.

2012 Sony, $28.96; Blu-ray, $39.95 It takes too long for director Roland Emmerich's disaster epic "2012" to get out of first gear, but once the Earth begins to crumble, the destruction comes fast and furious. John Cusack stars as a science fiction writer racing to get his family to safety, but the plot of "2012" matters less than the relentless scenes of characters running, driving, flying and boating just ahead of explosions and tsunamis. Even those who pick up "2012" looking to see world-ending mayhem may get bored with all the rubble.

After protests from 26 pet owners, the City Council this week dropped a proposed ordinance to restrict the hours that canines may be walked on the city's so-called "Dog Beach." Pet owners have for many years been permitted to walk their leashed dogs at all hours of the day on the stretch of city beach between Golden West Street and Bolsa Chica State Beach. Pet owners say it is one of the few public beaches in Southern California that permit dogs at any hour.

I have been a resident of Port Hueneme for 10 years. My condominium overlooks Hueneme Beach and adjoining Ormond Beach. Over the years, I gradually saw the beaches flooded with all-terrain vehicles and the wildlife disappeared. My neighbors and I led a movement to have Oxnard ban the vehicles from its beach and join Port Hueneme in policing the areas. Once again, the wildlife began to return and this past year was spectacular. We were visited by three sizes of egret and heron of various types.

Los Angeles County officials have drafted an unprecedented policy to increase public awareness of potential health risks of swimming in the ocean after heavy rains, sewage spills and environmental accidents. A beach regulatory protocol to be considered by the County Board of Supervisors today would be the first of its kind in California, said officials from the state Department of Health Services.

One of the largest sewage spills along the Southern California coastline in years has forced the closure of three miles of popular beaches and surf breaks in south Orange County. An underground sewage main in Rancho Santa Margarita ruptured Tuesday afternoon, sending an estimated 500,000 gallons of raw sewage gushing into a creek that empties into the ocean at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, officials said Thursday. Beaches from the breakwater at Dana Point Harbor to Capistrano Bay Community Beach could remain closed through the weekend, or until water quality test- ing meets state standards for two straight days, Orange County health officials said.
