Powerboats and personal watercraft will be allowed to return to a Carlsbad lagoon now that authorities appear to have eradicated a fast-spreading algae that endangered aquatic life. The City Council voted 4 to 0 on Tuesday to end the three-year ban on motorized craft in the Snug Harbor area of Agua Hedionda Lagoon, which had been infested with Caulerpa taxifolia.

It soon may be illegal to park a boat or recreational vehicle in front of your house here. The city is considering such a law because of complaints from residents about junk cars, motor homes and other vehicles cluttering residential neighborhoods, said Mayor David Glass. "Based on the reaction from the public so far, people want this," he said. The City Council will consider the ban Monday.

An Orange County judge said Friday that he is leaning toward supporting the DMV's conclusion that an Orange man should pay the higher commercial fees for his 57-foot motor home. Superior Court Judge David A. Thompson said he will announce his ruling in the next few days on Angelo "Chuck" Emanuele's $180,000 Atlantic Star recreational vehicle. Two years ago, Emanuele bought a Kenworth cab with attached living quarters and added a 40-foot recreational trailer.

Angelo "Chuck" Emanuele wanted to pack the wife and kids into an RV and hit the interstate. One hitch, however. Emanuele's new RV was so big the DMV classified it as a commercial vehicle, not a motor home. So instead of flying past weigh scales, he has to pull in with the big diesel rigs and wait in line with the cross-country drivers. His license must be Class A. He must carry a medical release, maintain log books and consume no alcohol.

Citing strong orders for recreational vehicles and an upturn in its long-slumping manufactured-home business, Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. said Thursday that it would hire more than 1,000 workers over the next year. Fleetwood stock soared $2.25, or 27.4%, to $10.45 on the New York Stock Exchange, reaching a two-year high. It was the biggest percentage gainer on the NYSE. The shares fell as low as $3.06 in March amid the Riverside-based company's mounting financial woes.

A coalition of a dozen national conservation groups is fighting the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's plan to open all but a small portion of the Imperial Sand Dunes to recreational vehicle use, continuing a protracted legal battle over access to the 160,000-acre dunes east of San Diego.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management on Friday opened all but a small portion of the Imperial Sand Dunes to recreational vehicle use, reversing a 3-year-old policy that had set aside a large portion of the dunes to protect fragile plant and animal species, including the desert tortoise. In issuing its management plan for the 160,000-acre dunes east of San Diego, the BLM also for the first time established visitor targets to better manage peak holiday crushes.

It has always been a little jewel to visitors, this campground by the bay with a dense canopy of trees, making it seem like something out of J.R.R. Tolkien's trilogy rather than the arid Central Coast. Even on the sunniest days, large, haphazard campsites in the shade are its hallmark, making Morro Bay State Park Campground a popular destination for folks fleeing the hot climes of Bakersfield, Fresno and Los Angeles.
