A Malibu developer, racing to start building a luxury hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean before a new Malibu city government has a chance to block it, was dealt a severe blow Wednesday by the California Coastal Commission. The commission, meeting in this North Coast city, voted 7 to 4 to delay approval of a grading and site-preparation plan by the Adamson Cos. for a 27-acre site near Pepperdine University.

It was a moment that called for a cellphone. As the first-time visitors stepped onto the lobby balcony overlooking the ocean at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, they couldn't resist calling friends to tell them about the vista. "It's like the Mexican Riviera," one said. "It's like the Mediterranean," another said. And above all, it's like nothing else in Los Angeles County as the first and only luxury waterfront destination resort.

One person was shot to death and another wounded in an Artesia hotel Sunday by a man who then apparently barricaded himself in a room of the hotel, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said. Searching for the gunman, believed to be a 68-year-old man, deputies sent a special weapons team to the Ramada Inn on South Pioneer Boulevard after the shootings occurred at about 5 p.m. One wing of the hotel was ordered evacuated, forcing about 10 guests from their rooms, deputies said.

Forty tenants of an apartment building that was left soaked and moldy by storms during a roof replacement have moved temporarily to an LAX-area hotel. The Los Angeles County Community Development Commission, which is paying for their housing, also has loaned the owner of the building in the 1400 block of West 105th Street money for renovations that will take several weeks. The contractor in charge of the work has promised to replace personal property that was damaged.

Three men have been arrested in what Los Angeles authorities called a "very sophisticated" jewel theft ring that included a holdup in San Diego, police said Friday. The robbers used disguises, walkie-talkies and binoculars to follow jewelry couriers before robbing them of more than $1 million in gems, police said. The last and largest of five robberies occurred last month at a San Diego hotel.

Perhaps the most intense and spirited competitive event locally Saturday was a true "squeaker," going right down to the wire. Those who witnessed it will be talking about it for months. In fact, those who watched it could probably have cared less about that other rivalry being decided across town between two large Los Angeles universities. That clash was just a matter of brawn. This one was all about brains.

Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Gil Garcetti said Thursday that Palos Verdes Estates police officers used justifiable force in subduing a masked gunman who shot and killed two of their colleagues and later died. The gunman, David Fukuto, died of traumatic head injuries and asphyxia after officers wrestled him to the ground to get two guns out of his hands during the Feb. 14 attack at the Torrance Holiday Inn, where police and city officials were holding a motivational training seminar.
