The owners of 49 Rancho Palos Verdes townhouses have sued the project's developer and designers, charging that their 3-year-old homes are cracking and crumbling because of shoddy construction and poorly compacted soil. Walls, floors and roofs at the Villa Capri townhouse complex near Hawthorne Boulevard and Palos Verdes Drive West have begun to crack and buckle, owners said. Toilets and other fixtures have cracked and pulled away from walls, as have patios and balconies, the suit says.

The 49-unit Golden Cove town-home project in Rancho Palos Verdes--criticized by some residents for putting too much development on 6.3 acres but touted by officials as a way to create affordable housing--was approved by the City Council in June, 1986. Since then, the developer and the name have changed. But work on the project, which was first proposed five years ago, is finally under way.

The financially strapped Los Angeles Heat failed to post a $20,000 performance bond with the American Professional Soccer League West Friday and are expected to fold later this week, the team's principal owners have confirmed. "It's over. We're finished," said club President John Ajemian. "We're closing our doors."

Santa Clarita city officials Monday spent a holiday that honors a President known for chopping down trees by hiking through a canyon where a developer wants to cut down 10 of them. The trees are 100-year-old California oaks that stand as high as 40 feet, much larger than the cherry tree that, legend has it, was axed by George Washington. Some city residents and council members believe the majestic oaks can be spared if a luxury home project in the area is redesigned.

It was Rancho Palos Verdes' version of the Big Spin, but the prizes were condominiums, not cash. In a city-sponsored drawing televised on the local cable system, 10 people won the right this week to buy "affordable" units at the luxury, ocean-view Villa Capri project near the spectacular Palos Verdes coastline. "Affordable" meant $140,000 for a one-bedroom condo with a loft. The price drew 3,900 applicants for the 10 units.

In a city-sponsored drawing televised on the local cable system this week, 10 people won the right to buy "affordable" units at the luxury, ocean-view Villa Capri project near the spectacular Palos Verdes coastline. About 1,800 city residents entered the lottery for the right to buy a one-bedroom apartment with a loft for $140,000.

For four years, the Von Glahn family has enjoyed quintessential Rancho Palos Verdes living: an ocean view, pool, sauna, and peace and quiet. But unlike most other new homes in the city, their three-bedroom digs are considered affordable: $151,000. That may not sound low-cost, but it's dirt-cheap compared to the townhouses a block away selling for $300,000-plus. "The location was the No. 1 priority," said Sherryl Von Glahn, 50, who lives in the townhouse with her husband, Christopher, and their two children.

The appointment of veteran public relations expert Dick White as general manager of the Los Angeles Heat may signal that the American Professional Soccer League team will remain in the South Bay and not move to Orange County as previously announced. White, a former sports editor at the Torrance Daily Breeze who has held several professional sports management jobs over the past 25 years, was appointed Tuesday to replace Jill Fracisco, who was the only female executive in the APSL.

They trotted onto the football field at El Camino College a year ago with the name of a shoe manufacturer on the back of their red-and-white uniforms. Uninspired, the players of the Los Angeles Heat lost their American Professional Soccer League West opener to the Colorado Foxes, 3-1, before a crowd of only 500 in 12,000-seat Murdock Stadium. The attendance debacle cost the team $12,000 and its performance on the field didn't gain it any respect.
