The trouble began in the summer of 1986 on the sand at Newport Beach and Huntington Beach. First, nearly 160 people were arrested and several police officers were injured on July 4 in Newport in a rock- and bottle-throwing melee. The same thing happened at the end of August on Labor Day weekend in Huntington Beach, except people there also rushed a large lifeguard station and overturned and burned police cars. At least 40 people were injured.

They arrive almost any time, day or night. Turning off Beach Boulevard, the large trailers and recreational vehicles lumber past the gate, roll into parking spaces and hook up their electricity, water and sewer lines. Some stay only a day or two, just long enough to visit Knott's Berry Farm a few blocks up the road. Others like the place so much that they never leave at all. "It's a freer lifestyle," said Joan Johnson, 60, who has lived in a 29-foot trailer here for the last 20 years.

BOOM . . .: The county is home port for nearly 60,000 boats, but once it was also the sailboat-building capital of the nation. . . . Peaking in the late 1970s, 20 or so manufacturers in Costa Mesa produced about 80% of the nation's sailboats. "At the time, I'd guess we were pounding out seven or eight big sailboats a day," says Roger MacGregor, whose MacGregor Yachts is the last still there. . . . "Most of those companies were bought up by large corporations that ran them into the ground."

To the loud applause of Huntington Beach residents, the California Coastal Commission on Tuesday voted unanimously to kill plans for the controversial Pierside Village project. "Pierside Village is dead!" exulted Councilwoman Grace Winchell, a longtime foe of the project, shortly after the commission's 12-0 vote.

It was near dawn. The sun had yet to rise and a nearly full moon still lingered, casting shadows on the beach, when out of the dimness the people came. Some were carrying lawn chairs while others had blankets wrapped around them, a few walking barefoot across the cool sand. Dressed in jeans, sweat suits, shorts, and occasionally in suits and ties, they appeared an eclectic group. But there was something they held in common, something that brought them together this Easter Sunday morning.

A small diesel spill tainted a half-mile strip of ocean water Thursday morning but broke up before polluting the beach. The light sheen, caused by an estimated 15 gallons of diesel fuel, was spotted by Shell Oil crews about three miles off Bolsa Chica State Beach shortly before 9 a.m. It broke into patches and evaporated within a few hours. "It's so light you can't even skim it. This stuff naturally dissipates before it gets to shore," said U.S. Coast Guard Lt. John Meehan.
