Baseball fans who collect trading cards and other memorabilia will soon be able to add a less common item to their inventory: stadium seats. The city plans to sell as many as 50,000 seats from Anaheim Stadium over the next two years. The seats are being removed as part of the stadium's $100-million make-over into a 45,000-seat baseball park. Renovation of the stadium by Disney Sports Enterprises is expected to begin next month.

The rose beds at Descanso Gardens, one of the county's premier floral attractions, will be uprooted and replanted over the next 18 months as part of a major renovation plan.

With plans to reopen damaged Kanan Dume Road underway, city officials hope to turn their attention to shoring up--or tearing down--the decaying, closed Malibu Pier before the anticipated heavy storms of El Nino reach the structure Malibu Mayor Jeff Jennings said Wednesday that the city has, in effect, agreed to lease the pier from the state. With Malibu as the lease holder, Jennings said, county funds would be available to help pay for renovation of the landmark.

No More Neon: Monty's Steakhouse, the Westwood fixture set atop the Westwood Center building at 1100 Glendon Ave., has closed. Arden Realty Inc. purchased the building in early '98 with plans to renovate it completely from the outside in. Monty's had been entrenched in the penthouse since 1969 (the structure dates from '65). During its reign, its neon sign became a landmark and its dark interior saw lots of interesting events, including Snoop Doggy Dogg's acquittal party.
REAL ESTATE

Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell has put a Hollywood Hills home that she owns on the market at $829,000. The pop star marked her 55th birthday in November at an Atlanta concert with another Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Bob Dylan. She also starred in the fall in her first TV special since 1980 and cut the album "Taming the Tiger."
TRAVEL
September 17, 1995 | SHIRLEY SLATER and HARRY BASCH
This fall it's possible, if you or your travel agent are creative, to book some Carnival cruises at a rate of about four-passengers-for-one. Or, on Holiday's midweek Los Angeles-to-Ensenada run, pay $299 per person for two berths in one cabin, and have two more share the cabin free. Or pay as low as $524 per person on Princess Cruises' two-for-one, seven-night Caribbean voyage. Why so cheap?

Leona and Harry Helmsley emerged from a silver stretch limousine under slate-gray skies a little more than a week ago to be fingerprinted, photographed, booked and arraigned among drug dealers and thieves in the Manhattan criminal courthouse. Clad in a fire-truck-red coat-dress with blue velvet lapels, Leona Helmsley held her head high, linked arms with her husband and smiled at the mass of reporters outside the courthouse. Asked for comment, they replied only, "Good morning."
