John Fitzgerald of Highland Park and several other readers noticed that the flags were upside-down on the "I Voted" stickers they were given at the polls (see accompanying). Was the position of the Stars and Stripes a commentary on the quality of the candidates? After all, an upside-down flag is the international distress signal. FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Marie Donnel of Camarillo came upon a crustacean who may or may not have a place to hang its hat.

The news made the front page in Manhattan Beach. Not even the peewee soccer league got better play. The local weekly, the Beach Reporter, announced it was expanding down the coast. To Kevin Cody, it meant just one thing. "The stage has been set for a classic newspaper war," Cody, publisher of the competing Hermosa Beach-based Easy Reader, predicted at the time.

A burglar who filched a CD player from a Manhattan Beach home "took more than the usual goods," the Easy Reader newspaper reported. "He also took a shower." The intruder wasn't obsessed with cleanliness though. After he bathed, the newspaper added, he left "the wet towel on the bathroom floor." * AERIAL ATTACK ADVISORY: A written threat to jurors in a courthouse--has it come to this? In Long Beach, yes.

With the new 1998 law, the philosophical question "smoking or nonsmoking section?" has disappeared from the language in California. For nostalgia's sake, let's hear one of the last times it was posed. While eating breakfast at a restaurant, Joseph Wojcik of Claremont overheard a hostess ask some arriving patrons their breathing preference. When they requested a nonsmoking section, the hostess replied, "I only have smoking available--but you don't have to smoke."

WHEELIES FOR JUSTICE: OK, we'll give you a little hint. The next time you happen to see a couple of big guys on mountain bikes whispering into walkie-talkies at 2 a.m. in Hermosa Beach, chances are they're not members of the Swiss national cycling team. Can you say police officer? Seven car thieves are probably still muttering the words to themselves after being nabbed by a new night police patrol on two-wheelers.

Lifeguard Tracy Geller and his eighth-grade surfing students had been riding waves off Manhattan Beach for about half an hour when his gut told him something wasn't right. All morning, Geller's eye had been drawn to a glimmer in the water near a buoy about 150 yards offshore. At first, he thought the flashes of light were coming from a pod of dolphins. Then he wasn't so sure. It looked more like a bodyboard that had drifted out to sea.

At a raucous election-eve session Monday, the City Council narrowly granted developer Les Guthrie a six-month extension on his conditional use permit to build the controversial 156-room Inn at King Harbor hotel/sports complex. Guthrie reacted angrily, however, saying he needed a full year to complete preparations for the eight-story project.
