If you plan a quick jaunt to an accessible lighthouse near you, or a tour of many, here are a few along the Pacific Coast. Even if you head out when skies are clear, be prepared for bitter winds and rain in winter, wear sturdy, comfortable shoes and take along binoculars. Restored to its original appearance as a tourist attraction, the old Point Loma Lighthouse is the focal point of the Cabrillo National Monument on Point Loma in San Diego.

Santa Barbara-based Pacific Coast Airlines said Friday that it has suspended passenger service for at least 15 days and that negotiations are under way to sell the company, which for the past four years has been reorganizing under Chapter 11 protection.

Americans on both coasts will have access to a hurricane hot line if a major tropical storm threatens this year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday.

Hurricane Alma turned back out to sea and was downgraded to a tropical storm after a deadly brush with Mexico's southern coast that killed three people and left hundreds homeless. The season's first Pacific hurricane shredded homes, toppled trees and clogged roads in and near the port city of Lazaro Cardenas, about 220 miles southwest of Mexico City. Poor neighborhoods of cardboard-and-wood homes were devastated, though more solid buildings generally withstood the storm.

Sheriff's deputies said it could take until Thursday to clean up a stretch of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu that was closed over the weekend because of rockslides and mudslides. Bulldozers on Monday cleared away parts of the cliff side softened by February's heavy rains, sending even more debris onto a covered roadway--an effort to forestall future slides, Caltrans officials said.
One of the nicer, and most unappreciated, native California plants is the Pacific Coast iris. Quite unlike the stiff, bearded iris of gardens, the Pacific Coast iris looks more like a grass and can be hard to spot among native grasses, at least until it comes into flower. The Pacific Coast iris flowers in early spring, usually in March. The flowers are flat and open and easy to see in the garden and they can be so numerous as to nearly hide the plant beneath.

Using helicopters and rock climbers, Caltrans placed a cable mesh net over a Malibu hillside Thursday in hopes of preventing landslides along Pacific Coast Highway. The net covers a 750,000-square-foot area north of Big Rock Drive, said Caltrans spokeswoman Margie Tiritilli. "Should there be any rocks that slide in the future, the net will capture them and escort them down the hill instead of letting them rumble down to the roadway," she said.
