State wildlife officials cited a Riverside County man Sunday for allegedly poaching dozens of lobsters inside one of Southern California's new marine sanctuaries, in what authorities called the first major violation of fishing restrictions that took effect Jan. 1. The state Department of Fish and Game said Marbel A. Para, 30, of Romoland and a companion were diving off Laguna Beach shortly after midnight when wardens stopped them and found 47...

One year after a landslide caused a bluff walkway to collapse at the city's popular Heisler Park, the City Council has approved a $650,000 project to repair the damage. The project includes rebuilding an 8-by-25-foot stretch of walkway, the addition of a 14-foot-wide view terrace in the middle of the path and the repair of stairs at nearby Rockpile Beach. The council approved the project in concept last week, 4 to 1, with Councilwoman Ann Christoph dissenting.

Efforts to preserve Laguna Beach's picturesque Heisler Park from coastal erosion remain on track, with city officials relieved that recent rains have not further imperiled the bluff top. Parts of the 78-year-old park, popular with tourists, joggers, picnickers and wedding parties, are slowly crumbling onto the beach below, north of Laguna's Main Beach.

Laguna Beach will launch a multimillion-dollar campaign today to stanch the erosion threatening bluff-top Heisler Park. The effort begins at 9 a.m. with a community workshop at City Hall to solicit ideas. Since the park opened in 1927, piecemeal repairs have addressed erosion along the narrow walkways that bypass sensitive tide pools. The milelong park begins at the north end of Main Beach Park and rises to stretch along the bluff top.

Apparently the City Council is now trying to order patrolmen in Heisler Park to stand guard over gays performing illicit acts so they don't get their heads bashed in. I don't like to see anybody bashed over the head in Heisler Park, but the gays have brought this problem on themselves. My family has owned a house on Cliff Drive for 75 years. My parents, who have seen gays rendezvousing in the park as late as 6 a.m., are now dodging bullets on their front porch. I can see no valid reason why gays or anybody else has to meet in Heisler Park at 4 a.m. Maybe there should be a curfew so our already understaffed and overworked police don't have to spend their time protecting people performing illicit acts.

Five pay telephones will be installed in the city's park and beach areas within the next month, partly in response to the series of assaults against gay men, city Finance Director Dick Reese said Tuesday. General Telephone Co. agreed to install the telephones on public land at no cost to Laguna Beach. Heisler Park, where several attacks occurred, will now have two phones about 2 city blocks apart, Reese said.

Re "Man Is Sharing His Viewpoint," March 8: I am greatly cheered by Joseph E. Brown's gift of land to Laguna Beach for an ocean-overlook park. I have become increasingly depressed in recent years by the intense urbanization of the Southern California coast. I spent my childhood during the 1930s in Laguna Beach, and I especially remember Laguna's oceanfront Heisler Park. From its cliff-top vistas the public had an unobstructed view of Laguna's magnificent coastline as well as unrestricted access to the beaches.

Efforts by struggling painters in Laguna Beach to sell their artwork in parks and other public spaces have been dealt a blow by a federal court judge in a free-speech case being watched by artists across the state. The decision comes as plein-air painters in art-oriented cities like Laguna Beach, Carmel and Santa Monica have been pushing for the right to sell their art in public, saying they can't afford the skyrocketing prices of renting gallery space.
