The city of Malibu has a message for its residents: When a big quake hits, don't wax up the surfboard and head to the beach. City Hall is beginning to distribute tsunami-warning brochures across Malibu that are tailor-made for the surfing paradise. "Never go to the beach to watch for, or to surf, a tsunami wave!" the guide states in bold letters. " ... Because they are not like regular waves, they are impossible to surf. They are much faster, higher and can come on-shore filled with debris."

Homes dotting the hillside on Winding Way in Malibu are worth millions -- with good reason. The ocean views are spectacular. Forests of eucalyptus trees attract wildlife and provide a rural refuge from the city. But those same trees can obstruct the ocean views, igniting nasty disputes among neighbors. One such conflict now brewing could land a 73-year-old man in jail.

Sticklers, take note. If heading to Broad Beach in Malibu, be sure to have tide chart, tape measure and public-access map in hand if you want to be sure to plop your beach towel and boogie board in a legal zone. Without those tools, beachgoers will be pretty much at sea when it comes to sorting out the crazy quilt of public easements along the 1.1-mile stretch of prime beach.

The long-running scuffle over public access on Broad Beach in Malibu took another twist Friday when the California Coastal Commission ordered an end to the posting of no-trespassing signs and the use of security guards on all-terrain vehicles to chase visitors off the dry sand.

Normally a man injured by a shot from a pellet gun would not warrant much attention from sheriff's deputies in the nation's largest county. A victim's name is taken down. A report is filed. If things were slow, maybe in a few weeks someone would look into it. But that all changes when the man shot is a paparazzo staking out Britney Spears at her baby shower in Malibu.

A photographer who was staking out a Malibu home that pop star Britney Spears was believed to be visiting was shot in a thigh by a pellet gun Saturday night, authorities said. Brad Diaz was among 15 to 20 photographers waiting 200 feet away from the home in the 2000 block of Carbon Mesa Road when he was struck by a pellet about 7:50 p.m., said Lt. Steve Smith of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. "They put a county Band-Aid on him and transported him away in an ambulance," Smith said.

A car filled with teenagers plunged off an embankment and rolled over several times early Sunday, killing a 17-year-old girl and a male companion and leaving two others seriously injured. Police blamed the crash on drinking. The California Highway Patrol said the 1999 Acura was traveling northbound on Malibu Canyon Road just before 1 a.m. when it veered off the road and rolled down a 50-foot embankment.

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.
