The Orange County Harbors, Beaches and Parks Commission gave mixed signals Wednesday night about a proposed renewal of the controversial lease of the Sunset Marina Park, a 276-slip boat haven at Huntington Harbour. On the one hand, the commission voted 4 to 2 not to endorse a county staff recommendation to renew the lease for another 30 years. But the commission also voted unanimously to direct the staff to seek additional concessions from the operator of the marina, Goldrich & Kest Inc.

The Board of Supervisors asked the county's executive officer Tuesday to determine whether the county's Harbors, Beaches and Parks Department can have more autonomy. The request came in response to a recent grand jury report criticizing the diversion of $7.5 million a year -- about $57 million in total -- from the department's budget to help pay off the county's bankruptcy debt. A response to the board's inquiry will be completed in 60 days, the chief executive said.

Bart's Bait, a wooden shack not much bigger than an elevator by an aging pier in Dana Point Harbor, has dished out hot dogs and coffee -- along with frozen anchovies and fishhooks -- to generations of surfers, fishermen and beachgoers. So when its last owner, Paula Hops, quietly retired last month, shuttering Bart's Bait after 47 years, county officials were left with a tricky challenge: how to replace what had become an institution.

The Orange County Bird of Prey Center is expected to enter negotiations with the county about building a bird rehabilitation facility at Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park that would also house a ranger's office and public restrooms. The Board of Supervisors will decide today whether to authorize the Harbors, Beaches and Parks Department to begin talks with the center, which heals injured raptors and educates the public about local bird life.

The two pieces of land are all potential. One is a stretch of beach along a railroad track in San Clemente, while the other follows the path in Tustin where a track used to be. Add $6.4 million in federal funding and then break out the bicycles and walking shoes--Orange County's two newest trails are about to become reality. "This is good news," said Harry Huggins, acquisition coordinator for the county Harbors, Beaches and Parks Division.

Some users of county parks are asking county Chief Executive Officer Jan Mittermeier to create an independent Harbors, Beaches and Parks Department when she unveils a final reorganization plan later this fall. Under a draft restructuring proposal presented this summer, the parks department would be folded into a larger Public Works agency handling several functions including flood control and infrastructure projects.

Re "Yes on Proposition 40," Editorial, Feb. 20: The California Clean Water, Clean Air, Safe Neighborhood Parks, and Coastal Protection Act on Tuesday's ballot provides a minimum of $13.87 million for Orange County. Each city is guaranteed funding based on needs and population. The bonds will provide funds for clean water, clean air and the state parks and conservancies that we can visit throughout the state. There is a long line of needed projects in many communities. Californians have passed only one park bond act in the past 12 years, while adding more than 5 million people since 1988.
