Shake out those bones and learn all about fossils at Ralph B. Clark Regional Park in Buena Park. There's a whale of a tale to be told, and, in fact, the Interpretive Center boasts the most complete adult fossil whale--"Joaquin"--on display in the world.

The Interpretive Center at Ralph B. Clark Regional Park takes visitors back to Orange County's past, where they learn about the animals that once roamed the land or lived in the sea. The result of the many fossils found at the park site was the creation of the regional park in Buena Park and the museum in 1988 to preserve and display the rare finds. The park is also the only place in Orange County where children--and adults--can go out and actually search for prehistoric fossils.

When directors of the Mesa Consolidated Water District voted earlier this month to share their fossil collection with Orange Coast College, they did not allocate funds to create the display. Officials said they felt that the estimated $1,400 required to arrange the displays and hire a paleontologist to write a narrative describing the specimens was simply too much.

The city is negotiating a deal that would allow it to consolidate its 19 softball leagues, which now play at several locations, at a single site, officials said Monday. Part of the county's Ralph B. Clark Regional Park was being leased by Eagle Sports, a Virginia-based concern, but the company went bankrupt in October, leaving the county with an $8,500 water bill, said Todd Olsen, Fullerton's director of adult sports leagues.
