Two years ago, a skinhead arrested for beating a Chinese-American teen-ager in Fullerton told police that he and his white-power friends knew where to go in Orange County to meet up with other like-minded youths. "Huntington Beach is the hotbed for skinheads," said the 17-year-old boy, who was from San Dimas in east San Gabriel Valley. Since the mid-1980s, Huntington Beach, famous for its surfing scene, has also been something of a magnet for skinheads.

Natalie Kotsch knows how to talk to surfers. There she was on a recent afternoon, standing at the ocean's edge in a billowing dress and holding a copy of a movie story outline entitled "PCH Dreams." She spoke to surfer after surfer as they emerged from the water and walked on the beach. "The International Surfing Museum is taking part in a feature movie that's going to be made right here in Huntington Beach," Kotsch told one surfer. "We're going to use a lot of local surfers in the movie.

An almost imperceptible change takes place along Beach Boulevard as it stretches south past the San Diego Freeway. From muffler shops, K mart stores and U-Haul lots, the scenery changes to professional buildings, lobster restaurants and a humongous sporting goods store covering nearly a city block. The landscape seems subtly more upscale here; the streets more hospitable and the shops more inviting.

Drawings showing the city's plans for a new arts center were unveiled Tuesday night during a study session by the City Council. The center is scheduled to open in the spring of 1991. The plans call for renovation of a 11,000-square-foot building at 538 Main St. formerly owned by Southern California Edison Co. Meeting in that building Tuesday night, the council viewed drawings that showed interior spaces converted to galleries and display areas.

The bluff-lined portion of Bolsa Chica State Beach just north of the Municipal Pier is largely deserted. But the handful of surfers, joggers and beach-goers who enjoy the forgotten strand know the two regulars who are always there keeping on eye on things. For 10 years, the painted images of Laurel and Hardy have stood ready to offer surfers guidance about how to catch the best wave or provide inspiration to tiring runners.
