After 106 years, the Orange County coastal enclave of Sunset Beach was set to disappear next week ? if not in spirit, then at least on official maps ? with its annexation by the city of Huntington Beach. But traditions die hard in this close-knit, independent-minded community, where a greenbelt is the community focal point and residents pick up their mail at the post office because there's no home delivery. Now, a lawsuit has given Sunset Beach a temporary reprieve. The suit, filed by a group of residents angry about new taxes that will be imposed when they become part of Huntington Beach, seeks to scuttle the annexation approved last month by the Orange County Local Agency Formation Commission.

Huntington Beach Union High School District officials have said they sympathize with parents in the district who want to restore hands-on driver training in high schools, which fell victim to budget cuts in Sacramento.

As Emad Ali Hassan prepares next week to file a lawsuit against the city for ordering him to remove six feet from the top of his luxury home, a City Council decision this week will preclude his using the law firm he had chosen. The council, by a 3-2 vote, moved to prevent the law firm of Rutan & Tucker from representing Hassan because that firm represents the city on some land-acquisition matters.

Three Huntington Harbour residents filed a lawsuit Monday in an attempt to block a condominium project scheduled to be built in their waterfront community. The suit brought by Barbara Devlin, Joseph Scheitzach and John Kerkes and filed in Orange County Superior Court charges that the city acted illegally in issuing the land-use approval for the project because the housing element--the city plan defining present and future housing needs--was out of date at that time.

A federal appeals court Tuesday ruled that Ascon Properties should be allowed to resume its lawsuit seeking about $250 million in compensation for cleanup of Ascon's 37-acre property, a former dump site, near Edison High School. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco reinstated Ascon's lawsuit against Mobil Oil Co. and 11 other oil and trucking companies, which Ascon alleges dumped petroleum-drilling wastes and some hazardous materials at the property from 1938 to 1972.
