The City Council will meet tonight to consider amending a local ordinance to include squirrels as wild animals not to be fed. The proliferation of squirrels has been determined by city staff to contribute to bluff erosion and increased health risks to residents and tourists. In particular, the cliff areas at Heisler Park have been damaged due to large number of squirrels burrowing into the ground.

They came early and they came prepared. For months, Andrew Landsiedel, Adam Redding-Kaufman and Macklin Thornton had been protesting a proposed city ordinance that would fine adults who knowingly provided minors with a place to drink. This week, the three Laguna Beach High School students took center stage in a packed City Council meeting to argue against the measure. Their opposition was formidable - school officials, a deputy district attorney, medical doctors, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the local PTA and even a tearful father whose only son was killed by a drunk driver.

An ordinance that would regulate smoking in public places, including workplaces, for the first time in Orange County will go before the City Council Tuesday. The council, none of whose members smoke, has held public meetings on the proposal and will consider adopting the plan. The ordinance would require employers to prohibit smoking in portions of workplaces. It also would restrict smoking in restaurants with a capacity of 50 or more and would prohibit smoking in retail store lines.

After 30 years of horizons blocked by treetops, Ken Dyda now can wake up, walk into his Rancho Palos Verdes living room and behold a panoramic vista of Santa Monica Bay and the top of Mt. Baldy. The only drawback: Padam Singh, his newly treeless neighbor downhill, has stopped speaking to him. The feud began a year and a half ago when authorities showed up at Singh's house, armed with chain saws and a controversial ordinance that aims to protect residents' sight lines.

In a move expected to generate up to $30,000 annually for the city, the City Council has given final approval to an ordinance allowing the Fire Department to charge non-residents for paramedic services. When the new law is implemented July 1, Laguna Beach will become the only city in Orange County to charge non-residents only for such services, according to Deputy Fire Chief Rich Dewberry.

An ordinance restricting the types of new businesses that may open in the downtown area has been extended until next year. The ordinance, which will last until Jan. 3, prohibits new businesses within 200 yards of Main Beach that sell liquor to go. It also requires that new downtown businesses be reviewed by the city's Board of Adjustment to receive a conditional use permit. In the past, new businesses needed only to meet zoning requirements and obtain a business permit.

A new law on the use of city parks will prevent members of the Hare Krishna religious sect from setting up photo exhibits and tents at their annual festival in Main beach Park this summer. The ordinance, adopted by the City Council last week, forbids the use of tables, booths or any other structures in the city's parks. "The park can be used by anybody for any legal purpose. They just can't set up any structures," City Manager Ken Frank said.

Bivens Hunt and Kathryn Turner recently exchanged commitment vows and rings, popped a champagne bottle to celebrate, then drove to Scottsdale, Ariz., for their honeymoon. But the two women could not apply for a marriage certificate since no state in the country recognizes the union of gay or lesbian couples. So Turner, a 56-year-old college administrator, used a personal computer to print out a "certificate of ceremony" and asked the minister to sign it.

Forevermore, Kathryn Turner will remember May 21 as her day of liberation. Early Thursday morning, Turner and Bivens Hunt were at Laguna Beach City Hall to register as a couple under the city's new domestic-partners ordinance, the first such law in Orange County granting rights to gay men and lesbians similar to those of married couples. Afterward, outside City Hall, Turner filled her lungs with air and said in a voice thick with emotion: "I have never felt freer at any time in my life.

Our readers wrote letters throughout 1985 expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters. We appreciate their taking the time to share their viewpoints and look forward to hearing from you in 1986. Sobriety checkpoints: True, there is much too much drunk driving in America. But combatting this problem doesn't lie in illegal search and seizure. I feel that stiffer fines and longer incarceration periods would do more to first-time and chronic drunk drivers than would police roadblocks.
