Turning onto scenic Palos Verdes Drive South, one encounters breathtaking grandeur: the vast ocean, an infinite horizon. And then there is Donald Trump's 70-foot flagpole flying a nearly 400-square-foot flag. The flagpole that Trump illegally erected at his Rancho Palos Verdes golf club over a year ago is at the center of a simmering controversy between the billionaire and the California Coastal Commission.

Plans for a new Home Depot near Belmont Shore do not meet state rules for coastal development, the California Coastal Commission staff said Friday. The staff recommends that the commission reject the 16-acre project at its Oct. 10 meeting in San Pedro because of traffic, environmental and safety problems, and because the parcel lacks a legal permit. Home Depot remains committed to the project, a spokeswoman said. The report is available at www.coastal.ca.gov/mtgcurr .html.

The California Coastal Commission on Wednesday postponed deciding the fate of a housing development slated for 50 acres near the Bolsa Chica wetlands. Developer Shea Homes had asked for the delay after commission staff recommended that the project be shrunk from 38 to 17 acres. Commission attorneys said that under the Coastal Act, the only way to put off a decision was for Shea and the city to resubmit the proposal. Huntington Beach would also need to hold a public hearing on the project.

The California Coastal Commission agreed Wednesday to a settlement proposed by entertainment mogul David Geffen to end decades of wrangling over public access to the beach at his Malibu estate. The 12-member commission unanimously agreed to forgive Geffen for mistakenly building a deck that intruded into a public easement over the sand in front of his beach complex in exchange for his opening a 42-foot stretch of beach that had been closed to the public.

A state Coastal Commission decision to classify two Laguna Beach drainage ditches as waterways subject to environmental protection is being challenged in a lawsuit by a Catholic school that wants to build a bigger school on its campus. The suit, filed last week in Orange County Superior Court, argues that the commission overstepped its bounds when it decided that two ditches that channel water downhill during storms are streams.
