Two Orange County men have been arrested and a former Roman Catholic priest described by neighbors as a "perfect gentleman" is being sought in connection with a ring that allegedly made pornographic videotapes of young boys in Mexico and Southern California and distributed them worldwide, police said Tuesday. John Bauer, 52, said by officers to have preyed on juveniles in Hollywood in recent years and to have owned porno shops in the Pacific Northwest, was labeled the "Pornographic Priest" in a 1984 Chic magazine article that described his disillusionment with the priesthood.

A diesel-fuel slick, apparently from last week's sinking of a tugboat off Long Beach, forced a small area of beach to be closed briefly Saturday in Newport Beach, authorities said. The fuel washed ashore between 17th and 19th streets, and the area was closed for 30 to 40 minutes Saturday morning, said Marine Safety Lt. John Bauer. By afternoon, the sun had evaporated the fuel, he said. The spill apparently occurred Wednesday after a Navy attack submarine accidentally snagged the tugboat's towline and dragged the vessel under.

Officials in Portland, Ore., are waiting to see how heavy-metal rocker Ozzy Osbourne reacts to a request to tone down his Jan. 19 show. Lee Fehrenkamp, the manager of Portland's Exposition-Recreation Commission, wrote a letter to Osbourne's promoter, John Bauer, saying: "Since I know the great degree of influence an artist can have on our young audiences, I am respectfully asking if Ozzy Osbourne will omit elements of his performance which refer to such things as infant sacrifice and suicide."

In an effort to help others and keep themselves on the right path, about 15 at-risk teenagers performed community service Saturday at a children's camp. Organized by the Lion Clubs International and the Los Angeles County Probation Department, the group of teens spruced up cabins at the camp used during summer months by deaf children, said Steve Hulcy, a deputy probation officer and member of the Lions. The activity was designed to boost the young people's feelings of self-worth, Hulcy said.
