The City Council this week gave initial approval to a law that would require blinders on racks displaying sexually explicit materials. The law, which will be up for final approval Dec. 10, calls for the lower two-thirds of sexually explicit materials to be covered. Violation of the law will be a misdemeanor. Councilwoman Marilyn Bruce Hastings said the ordinance was prompted by complaints from residents about sexually explicit videotape covers and magazines on display at liquor stores.

The City Council gave preliminary approval last week to a change in council district boundaries. The change, which is expected to receive final approval later this month, will take the Old Ranch Golf Course property out of Mayor Edna Wilson's district and place it in Councilman Frank Laszlo's district. The Bixby Ranch Co. has proposed building a new golf course, houses and commercial development on the land, east of Seal Beach Boulevard and north of the San Diego Freeway.

The City Council this week took the first step toward changing district boundaries that would take the Old Ranch Golf Course out of Mayor Edna Wilson's district and put it into Councilman Frank Laszlo's. On a 3-2 vote, the council asked city staff to draft an ordinance making the changes, despite arguments by Wilson and Councilman Joe Hunt that the action should be delayed until May, when U.S. Census data will be available for ensuring that the districts' populations would be equal.

Despite a last-minute offer by Mola Development Corp. to sweeten the deal, the City Council this week refused to approve a voter initiative to allow the company to build 329 houses on the old Hellman Ranch property. In a letter to the city, Mola's attorney said that if the council approved the initiative, the company would drop all litigation and appeals against the city, defend the city against third-party lawsuits stemming from the action and donate a five-acre park worth $750,000.

The residents of Leisure World have passed the halfway point in their quest for a sound wall to reduce traffic noise from the San Diego Freeway. "We have hundreds of people whose lives are dramatically impacted by the noise," Seal Beach Councilman Joe Hunt said. "In certain areas of Leisure World, there's no such thing as opening your windows."
