Before we leave the congressional check scandal, I should report a recent conversation with Juan Cabrillo. He's the statue out on Point Loma. He calls occasionally to sound off. "You know which of our local congressmen really makes my limestone flake?" "Duncan Hunter, the unrepentant one?" "No, he says he always knew the House bank covered overdraft checks, and so he went full bore. He's right: it wasn't public money, just a pool of congressional paychecks. No harm, no foul."

He probably never set foot on the beach that bears his name. He may not even be buried on the island where a memorial marker has stood for nearly seven decades. But none of that matters to a group of history-loving San Pedro residents and volunteers. For 37 years, on the first Saturday after Labor Day, the group that calls itself the Cabrillo Landing Party disembarks ceremonially on San Miguel Island.

No one may ever know for sure where explorer Juan Cabrillo landed in Southern California 445 years ago to claim the land for Spain, but today residents in Malibu are staking their claim as the site of the visit. Local historians are scheduled to dedicate a bronze plaque in honor of Cabrillo's stop, making Malibu the second community in Southern California to claim itself as the site where the explorer first touched down and grabbed the territory for Spain.

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo is going the way of all flesh, a victim of salt crystallization, "visitor abuse" and maybe the fallout from a few thousand jet plane engines. A chunk of his tunic has chipped off. His aquiline nose is cracked across the bridge. Now an old injury--a torso break--is acting up. So the seven-ton statue is being retired after 37 years of surveying San Diego Bay from Cabrillo National Monument at Point Loma.

There was much heavy sighing and some collective head-scratching when the Bixby Ranch, a majestic coastal property belonging to the family that once owned all of what is now Long Beach and parts of Irvine and Palos Verdes, was sold in January for close to $140 million, a record for noncommercial real estate in California. The 25,000-acre Santa Barbara landholding had been slumbering for nearly a century as a respected cattle operation, a rustic getaway for the Bixby heirs and their friends, a surfing spot of mystical isolation, a site of concern to archeologists and environmentalists, and a muse for artists and other casual visitors.

I enjoyed your article on San Miguel (Sept. 17). However, why did you call Joao Rodrigues Cabrilho, a Portuguese navigator, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, a name that is not Portuguese? GENEVIEVE RODRIGUES CARREIRA Kailua, Hawaii Editor's note: Although the navigator was, indeed, Portuguese, all reference works consulted, including the Encyclopedia Americana and Encyclopedia Britannica, use the Spanish spelling of his name.
