If you're driving around Malibu on Pacific Coast Highway and you see a 15,000-pound piece of bent steel valued at $300,000 in the middle of an open field, you can thank Carl Schlosberg. Introduced officially to the public on July 1, the Summer Sculpture Exhibition in Malibu was developed by curator Schlosberg, who has been a fine-art dealer for 33 years and currently resides in Century City and New York City.

Malibu has offered a carrot to the movie makers who made the city famous, but it's also waving a big stick. The City Council approved new rules that for the first time allow film shooting after 10 p.m. -- but only with the unanimous approval of nearby residents. That and other rules were passed Monday night after a roiling feud over filming that pitted neighbor against neighbor and threatened to blow the cool of this legendary beach community.

Malibu's Broad Beach homeowners face fines of up to $15,000 a day for hiring bulldozers last month to scoop sand off the public beach and pile it onto private property in front of their oceanfront homes, under a lawsuit filed Wednesday by state officials. The suit, filed on behalf of two state agencies by California Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer, alleges that a homeowners group illegally took sand from the state-owned beach and converted it to private use.

The turf battles over Malibu's oceanfront tend to be as predictable as the spring tides as property owners and beachgoers contest for control of the sand. This year, the tussle over what is public and what is private has taken a surprising turn with property owners bringing in heavy equipment to scoop up tons of public beach and pile it onto their property.

The cameras were rolling and one of Hollywood's biggest producers was watching. And on Thursday, an excited group was auditioning for what could be this summer's hottest feature: Malibu beach-going. Coastal-access advocates set foot on the sand at Tinseltown titan David Geffen's sprawling beachfront estate, some for the first time, celebrating the opening of a 9-foot-wide public pathway to the ocean.

The northbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway were closed Tuesday by a landslide between Coastline Drive and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, but traffic was still getting through, Caltrans officials said. The northbound lanes will remain closed until further notice, but temporary concrete barriers were placed in the median to route all traffic to the southbound lanes, which will allow one lane of traffic in each direction.

Malibu Canyon Road reopened Saturday after being closed for almost a week because of storm-related rockslides and mudslides. It had been closed from Civic Center Way to Piuma Road while authorities cleared a big pile of rocks, boulders and other debris, said Menerva Ariki, spokeswoman for the county Public Works Department.

For a while, after a big rock at Big Rock closed Pacific Coast Highway, the pace of life in Malibu just seemed to change. It felt, some residents said, like a flashback to the '70s, before massive mansions and congestion came to town. "It's like the old days!" said Rich Davis, 72, a surfer and development consultant who has lived in Malibu for 44 years. "This keeps people out."

This isn't one of those development stories with an easy bad guy. There is no big-box retailer looking to grab a corner of Main Street; no mega homebuilder trying to pave a mountainside. Instead, this is a feud that pits blind kids against a rare fish in a gorgeous canyon of giant oaks and sycamores high above the beach near Malibu. On one side of the canyon is the Foundation for the Junior Blind, which is hoping to renovate and expand its longtime summer camp.

Malibu residents do not have the right to vote down a state-imposed coastal land-use plan, a state appellate court ruled Monday. Allowing "local voters to overturn state enactments would upend our government and invite chaos," the 2nd District Court of Appeal said. It suggested that the city ask the California Coastal Commission to amend the coastal plan to be "more of Malibu's liking."
