These days, say several attorneys who still have business with Edward Higgins Sr., the first man jailed for defying the Coastal Zone Conservation Act lives in a factory-built house, in western Malibu near the Ventura County line. It is an ordinary-looking building in a spectacular location, on the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway. It is also one of 12 units--seven homes and five guest houses--that Higgins ordered and installed in three Malibu neighborhoods in 1973.

Putting teeth into the cross-town rivalry, the Lakers relieved the Clippers of their last holdover center, signing James Edwards. The Lakers also signed former Fairfax High star Sean Higgins, a free agent who looked good on their summer league team. The twin signings required finesse, since the Lakers are $3 million over the salary cap. Edwards, 36, is thought to have gotten a two-year contract. The Lakers squeezed him into the $1.

Edward Higgins Sr., the first person ever jailed for developing land in defiance of a state Coastal Commission ban, has been ordered to pay more than $1 million to three partners, who claim that Higgins sold them some of the disputed property and then wrongfully foreclosed upon it after they obtained coastal permits to build two houses there.

Should chrysanthemum plants be cut back to near-ground level after the flowers fade? Traditional wisdom says yes. But it really depends on where you live, says Edward Higgins of Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, a major producer of mums. You should do it in warmer areas, but where hard, killing freezes are routine, it is better to mulch around plants and cut back in early spring, he recommends.

When the Scottish group One Dove closed its show at the Whisky on Wednesday with its most captivating song, "White Love," it pulled a trick straight out of its dance-music background--offering two alternative "mixes," as it were. As a preliminary to the full-blown, synthesizer-powered version, singer Dot Allison was flanked by two guitarists, whose acoustic blend of chunky rhythm and bottleneck lead sounded like a bluesy outtake from the Stones' "Beggars' Banquet."

Chrysanthemums once were mainly yellow in color and known as the "golden flower of the Orient." But color choices have changed. A red now is the best seller in this country, says Edward Higgins, product manager for Yoder Bros. of Barberton, Ohio, the world's largest producer of garden mums. Early in this decade, yellow still was the top choice. Bravo, a red decorative, is the new leader.

For years experts have insisted there is no safe way to tell how often a houseplant needs watering. Their advice to "water when dry" was accurate enough but unfortunately left many folks struggling for clues and wondering why a fixed schedule wasn't possible. Now there is, at least for potted, flowering chrysanthemums. Yoder Brothers of Barberton, Ohio, says its research shows that it is better to water a potted, flowering mum every other day than run the risk of it wilting.

The Los Angeles Times won a Pulitzer Prize for spot news reporting Tuesday for its coverage of the second, most devastating day of the riots that rocked the city a year ago. The Times, which also won a Pulitzer for its spot news coverage of the 1965 Watts riot, was cited by the Pulitzer Prize Board this time for "balanced, comprehensive, penetrating coverage under deadline pressure." It was the 19th Pulitzer won by the paper since 1942.
