Why has Los Angeles Harbor, the second busiest port in the U.S., imposed a 0500 to 2000 (5 a.m. to 8 p.m.) workday on ship movements? The city has refused to budge on its original offer to the Los Angeles pilots, while the pilots have reduced their original demands. The strike is now in its ninth week, and shippers are experiencing major delays. The Harbor Department insists that things are running normally. This does not appear to be "collective bargaining."

Dive teams have raised a 26-foot boat from the ocean floor but have not found the couple believed to have been aboard -- the brother of two California congresswomen and his girlfriend. Divers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and Port Police used hard plastic balloons to raise the boat to just below the surface Wednesday. The crews plan to lift the wreckage onto another boat and bring it ashore. Coast Guard Ensign Stephanie Young said investigators believe the boat belongs to Henry Sanchez, 51, who has been missing since Oct. 2 along with his girlfriend, Penny Avila, 48. Investigators said the boat may have collided with a barge being towed near the entrance to Los Angeles Harbor.

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will receive more than $27 million in federal grants to beef up security at the nation's busiest harbor complex, federal officials announced Thursday. The grants, which will be spent on new patrol boats, improved surveillance equipment and new command centers, go at least part way toward addressing what some local officials have said is a shortage of funding for measures to guard against terrorism.

The Great White Steamer Catalina disappeared from its mooring in Los Angeles Harbor last weekend and has turned up at anchor off Ensenada, but the ship's owners said Wednesday they have "no idea at all" what it is doing there. "Nobody told us it was being moved," said Ruth Singer, who has been co-owner of the Catalina since her husband, Hymie, bought it for her as a Valentine's Day present in 1977. "Maybe it's been stolen."

They're short, squat and not very glamorous, seemingly mere attendants to the great ships that ply the open seas. But without them, many of those great ships would be so much floating junk, unable to maneuver into ports to unload their cargo of goods and passengers. They are tugboats, the powerful little vessels that spend their lives pushing or pulling vastly larger ships where they need to go.
