Redondo Beach activists have collected enough signatures to force a controversial redevelopment plan known as Heart of the City onto the ballot. The City Council will decide tonight whether to rescind the resolutions that laid the groundwork for the project or let the matter go to voters. "This is what the petitioners wanted, and they've complied with the guidelines," said Redondo Beach Mayor Greg Hill, one of Heart of the City's most vocal supporters.

Less than an hour after the rain stopped Tuesday, boogie-boarders, bikini-wearers and other spring break revelers poured onto a recently rebuilt section of Redondo Beach's shoreline, determined to make up for the hours of fun lost to the storm. Many stopped short in horror. Cutting through the beach like bomb craters were three dark swaths--8 feet deep, 25 feet wide and growing--lined with cigarette butts, plastic bags and greenish muck from overflowing storm drains.

An eight-foot-high black fountain of sand, water and muck gushed over a roped-off section of Redondo Beach, attracting a gaping crowd of Rollerbladers, joggers and bicyclists. "Is it an oil spill? A sewage problem?" Karen Rellos asked as she and her two children pondered the roaring machines. No, they were told the other day, the work is an ambitious--and some fear futile--$3.5-million project to extend an eroded section of Redondo Beach just south of the municipal pier by as much as 50 feet.

Sunday afternoons at Naja's Place in Redondo Beach are like having your keg and drinking it too. Beachgoers drop by to seek relief from the hot sun. Cyclists pedaling the coast stop in for a brew break. And people-watchers surrender posts on the pier to quench their thirst. Maybe the jammin' rock 'n' roll music spilling out onto the boardwalk is the allure. It could be the picturesque waterfront location in King Harbor Marina.

In an attempt to show children how to use the 911 emergency system, the Redondo Beach police and fire departments this week launched "911 For Kids"--a program designed to show youngsters how to report an emergency. Over the next four months, dispatchers will visit each first-grade class in the school district to teach children about what constitutes an emergency and what kind of information dispatchers need.

A two-mile stretch of beach in Redondo Beach and Torrance was reopened Thursday by Los Angeles County health officials after they determined that high bacteria levels from a sewage spill had abated. The area from Topaz Way south to the base of the Palos Verdes Peninsula was closed late Tuesday when a blocked sewer line caused 3,000 gallons of raw sewage to spill into the ocean. The line was repaired, but officials predicted it would take a day or so for the high bacteria levels to dissipate.

For nearly two decades, those who reached the finish line at the Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K have always looked forward to the all-you-can-drink beer that's handed out at Seaside Lagoon, but when the 20th annual race takes place Sunday participants will be cut off after four beers. The Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the event, had believed that they didn't need a liquor license because participants were not paying for the beer, said Executive Director Marna Smeltzer.

Charging that Circus Vargas mistreats animals and neglects their medical care, dozens of animal rights activists plan to ask the Redondo Beach City Council tonight to block the circus from coming to town in June. The Redondo Beach-based Education and Action for Animals is leading the protest, claiming that the circus mistreated two elephants who died from tuberculosis last summer after Los Angeles-area performances.
