After 30 years of horizons blocked by treetops, Ken Dyda now can wake up, walk into his Rancho Palos Verdes living room and behold a panoramic vista of Santa Monica Bay and the top of Mt. Baldy. The only drawback: Padam Singh, his newly treeless neighbor downhill, has stopped speaking to him. The feud began a year and a half ago when authorities showed up at Singh's house, armed with chain saws and a controversial ordinance that aims to protect residents' sight lines.

The state Court of Appeal has ruled that Rancho Palos Verdes city officials can order a homeowner to trim his trees, even though his lawsuit against a local view-protection ordinance is pending before that court. But city officials in the wealthy suburb of 47,000 said they won't show up with chain saws at least until the appeals court decides the full case. The matter may wind up at the state Supreme Court.

In an effort to fulfill a court order to provide more affordable housing, the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council has approved a plan requiring the builders of a proposed 79-unit luxury housing development and golf course to include eight low-cost rental units. The plan, which the council approved 4 to 0 on Tuesday, requires the developers of the 261-acre Ocean Trails project to include four low-income units in the development and to build or buy four low-income units elsewhere in the city.

The City Council has given preliminary approval to a citywide ban on public nudity because of complaints about lewd activity and transients at Smuggler's Cove, a popular nude sunbathing spot. The council unanimously approved the ban Tuesday after listening to a parade of residents unhappy about the crowd being drawn to the beach, witnessing lewd acts and finding the beach littered with condoms. Bill Ruth, who lives on a hill above the cove, said many people are afraid to visit the beach.

Rancho Palos Verdes has become the first South Bay city to ban smoking in city restaurants, saying recent health studies point to the dangers of secondhand tobacco smoke. The City Council unanimously approved an ordinance this week prohibiting patrons from lighting up in restaurants and requiring bars to designate half their space as non-smoking areas. About 35 businesses in the affluent hillside community will be affected by the ordinance, which takes effect June 18.

Fliers call them "paragliders" and use them to soar like sea gulls riding on the wind. Increasingly, the fragile and controversial craft can be seen over the Palos Verdes Peninsula cliffs, their pilots suspended only by a harness under the fabric of the parachute-like wings. Riding thermal updrafts, some pilots stay aloft for hours and soar thousands of feet in the air. Experts warn, however, that the sport can be dangerous.
