Councilman Rudy Svorinich Jr. introduced an emergency motion to the Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday to instruct the Los Angeles Harbor Department to begin proceedings to rescue the historic ship Catalina, which is sinking in mud in Ensenada, Mexico. The plan calls for the Harbor Department to request the Port of Ensenada's harbor master to declare the ship abandoned. Svorinich wants the ship to be turned over to the Port of Los Angeles and towed back to the port.

The drug trade and drug wars continue in northern Baja California and the rest of Mexico, as this week's series in the Los Angeles Times abundantly shows. And the U.S. State Department is still warning travelers about the risks of visiting Mexico .  But the rest of life continues too, as I found during on my trip across the border this past weekend. -- 9:20 a.m. Saturday, July 23: I join a group of friends on a chartered bus trip from San Diego. The destination: Ensenada, 95 miles south of San Diego and about 75 miles south of Tijuana.

The cruisers on the Lido Deck were getting frisky. After soaking in an afternoon of sunshine and tropical drink, two young women launched into a love dance, drawing cheers from the guys by the hot tub. The show was PG-13, about to turn R-rated, when a security guard stepped in and politely ended the exhibition. Strike another victory for Carnival Cruise Lines' policy of "modesty and moderation."

Most things in the lives of Alejandro D'Acosta and Claudia Turrent are recycled: the trailer in which the architects live, their 3-year-old Christmas tree, even their rescued dogs. "The only thing not reciclada is my wife," D'Acosta says with a grin, his wedding-ring finger tattooed with her name. "Ay, gordo! What am I going to do with you?" Turrent admonishes him, laughing, her right wrist imprinted with his name like a bracelet.

I had never been on a cruise ship and never expected to be. I'd only watched them slowly dock or disappear from ports in the Caribbean and Latin America. I'm a diver and fond of boats of all kinds. But this was not a boat. It was a ship--more precisely, the 733-foot Carnival Holiday, which can accommodate almost 1,500 passengers. I was traveling in a group of 27--another first--and had only a vague idea of what was supposed to happen next.

Hey, sailor, new in town? -- Absolutely the dumbest question anyone can ask in Ensenada next Saturday. Figure on not sleeping. Figure on spilling at least four or five drinks in the crush. Figure on getting kissed by at least half a dozen strangers. Figure on noise and silly laughter and dancing through the night and more Carta Blanca and cheap tacos than you've ever seen in your life and the shaggiest sea stories ever to pass two lips.

As a port of call, this town is best known as a scenic but sleepy haven for yachtsmen and tuna boat skippers attracted by the city's great natural harbor and nearby schools of yellowfin tuna and albacore. But Ensenada's port is thinking big these days, emboldened by the growing maquiladora industry and the prospect of a North American Free Trade Agreement. A proposal being ramrodded by Baja California Gov.

Students from St. Hedwig's School packed 800 grocery bags Friday in preparation for this morning's trip to help a community of impoverished orchard workers and their families in Ensenada. This is the ninth year that the students and other parishioners at St. Hedwig's Catholic Church have collected tons of food and loaded their vans, cars and other vehicles to make the six-hour drive to Mexico. Between 50 and 75 parishioners were planning to leave at 6 a.m.

Seven bottlenose dolphins came to play, skipping across the waves toward the bow of our boat. Within seconds they were hopscotching through the sea ahead of the towering schooner, playing a masterful game of catch-me-if-you-can. We leaned over the rails and cheered them on. They were the first of dozens of dolphins we would see on a three-day cruise south along the California coast aboard the 73-foot sailing vessel Dirigo II.

Maria del Mar has a favorite table at a local cafe that she visits every night after work. The ritual is simple. She sits down with a good book, orders a cappuccino and biscotti, then revels in what she describes as "the tranquillity of the place." "I spend several hours each week there," said the 21-year-old real estate office manager. "I just enjoy cafes."

For Roy Disney and four-time America's Cup winner Dennis Conner, the secret to winning the Newport-to-Ensenada International Yacht Race is a well-trained crew and a swift boat. For Jeff Palmer and Mike Shorey, the key ingredients are ice-cold beer and a crew that can sail and party, not necessarily in that order. After 54 years, such is the split personality of this Southern California rite of spring that has become part regatta, part family outing and part booze cruise.

The Valentine's Day gift Ruth Singer received years ago could not be wrapped up neatly in a jewelry box, or even hidden under the bed until the special day arrived. Her gift was 307 feet long and had been used by more than 25 million people. For Valentine's Day in 1977, Singer's husband gave her the fabled Catalina, known as the Great White Steamer, that ferried passengers between San Pedro and Avalon for more than 50 years, starting in 1924.

At least 75 Americans caught in a property dispute in the Punta Banda seaside community south of Ensenada will have no choice but to abandon their houses because the site will be redeveloped, a lawyer for several Mexican landowners has confirmed. Although some of the mostly U.S. citizens of the community are renegotiating leases, attorney Mireya Sandez said three of the seven landowners plan to bulldoze existing houses.
