The rebuilding process in the wake of the Laguna Beach firestorm has been trudging forward, but community development director Kyle Butterwick is predicting it will soon accelerate. Over the past month, an average of five new building permits have been issued per week. Butterwick said he expects the pace to quicken as many more property owners get closer to final approval. Here is building data as of Sept.

The Lincoln Avenue bridge over Coyote Creek is going to be reinforced so that it is earthquake resistant, but it will not be beautified at the same time, as city officials had hoped earlier. Mark Christoffels, public works director, told the City Council this week that the city had once hoped to combine retrofitting of the bridge with a long-proposed "aesthetic enhancement project." But doing the strengthening and beautifying at the same time would be too costly, he said.

Dear Street Smart: This letter is to inquire about the new (August, 1993) stop signs on Yorba Linda Boulevard just before the Riverside Freeway interchange. I travel this road daily from Weir Canyon Road to California State University, Fullerton. I understood this rationale for placing some kind of traffic control along Yorba Linda Boulevard, due to cross traffic from the Riverside Freeway, but these two stop signs have added 15 minutes each way to my daily drive.

From its 6-foot jaw to its wrist bones, a 4-million-year-old whale skeleton unearthed on a hillside here is being hailed as the most complete, well-preserved specimen of its kind ever discovered, excited paleontologists said Tuesday. "This is probably the best whale skeleton ever found. Ever, anywhere, period," said Steve Conkling, a paleontologist who works for the county. "There are things preserved on this specimen I've never seen preserved even on modern whales."
