Many students who participated at this year's La Palma Days Parade weren't even born when Norma Nomura DeSaegher was a councilwoman. But if it weren't for her and the efforts of her colleagues, there might not have been a parade. As president of the La Palma Women's Club in 1978, DeSaegher and other members were instrumental in establishing the first La Palma Days Parade, then called the Founder's Day Parade. DeSaegher has long been a trailblazer.

Instead of waiting for long-delayed matching funds from bankrupt Orange County, the City Council has agreed to pick up the entire tab for improvements to La Palma Avenue and seek reimbursement later. In its role as the Community Development Commission, the council voted this week to solicit bids for the street work and, if necessary, to pay about $504,000 toward the projected total of $546,000. Cerritos agreed to pay the $42,000 difference because part of the street is within its city limits.

The City Council has recommended that voters shun a "deceptive" initiative on the Nov. 8 ballot that purports to restrict smoking. The council unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday that denounces Proposition 188. That initiative, backed by the tobacco industry, would prohibit city governments from enacting their own anti-smoking ordinances. It also would nullify a state law that cracks down on smoking.

When the La Palma City Council fought to keep veteran Councilman Richard Polis off the November ballot by enforcing a legally questionable two-term limit, Jacklyn Polis became incensed. And like some people who get angry at the goings on at City Hall, she filed papers to run for City Council. Even though a court later overturned La Palma's two-term limit and ordered the city to put her husband's name on the ballot, Jacklyn Polis didn't change her mind about running.

Despite an aggressive anti-tax campaign by a local cable company, the La Palma City Council has voted 5-0 to impose a 5% utility tax. City officials estimate the new fees, which apply to electricity, gas, telephones and cable television, will cost the average household an extra $6.85 a month. They will start Jan. 1. Council members said they reluctantly passed the new tax, but argued that it is necessary.

An increasingly popular Southland pastime--hockey on roller-skates--is going to become an organized sport in La Palma and Cypress. The La Palma City Council voted unanimously last week to create roller hockey leagues in conjunction with next-door neighbor Cypress. The Cypress City Council approved the joint project on Monday night. "How could we not vote for this?" asked La Palma Councilwoman Eva G. Miner after hearing a city Recreation & Community Services report on the sport's growth.

In the hopes of giving teens and seniors more space for community events, the City Council today will consider spending $5,000 to design an activities center in Central Park. Ron Kenny, director of Recreation and Community Services, said the city has set aside about $300,000 to build the center. The architectural design would be the first step in the project.

The City Council has scheduled a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to consider ratification of new rules for running the county Fire Department. The council earlier this month delayed action on the matter after the Apartment Assn. of Orange County raised questions about the proposed rules. Mayor Wally D. Linn said the association wanted to make sure that the new rules "assured local control" over fire services.

Joining next-door neighbor Cypress, La Palma is on record as favoring passage of a bill in the Legislature that would protect cities from skateboard-related lawsuits. La Palma's City Council passed a resolution endorsing Assembly Bill 2357. Sponsored by Assemblyman Bill Morrow (R-Oceanside), the measure would add skateboarding to the state's list of "hazardous recreational activities." Such a designation helps protect cities from lawsuits stemming from accidents involving those activities.
