Residents of the Crystal Cove State Park cottages who have received eviction notices from the state sued on Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court to prevent being ousted from the 1920s-era dwellings. A lawyer representing the Crystal Cove Residents Assn. said California Department of Parks and Recreation officials had violated the California Environmental Quality Act and other statutes by evicting residents without first adopting a plan for reuse or maintenance of the historic cottages.

On a sultry midweek afternoon at the grand new Resort at Pelican Hill, a scant dozen vacationers lounged at what is billed as the world's largest circular pool, flanked on one side by a Coliseum-style amphitheater and on the other by an ocean-view golf course. A few miles south in Laguna Beach, most of the 170 lounge chairs at the Montage resort's oceanfront pool were empty as the afternoon wore on. Cocktail hour arrived, but at 5:45 p.m. only a single table at the poolside Mosaic Bar & Grille was occupied.

It was, a doctor said, one of the worst cases of heartlessness he had seen. The woman, in the early months of pregnancy, was miscarrying when she walked into University of California, Irvine, Medical Center in the city of Orange. Another hospital had sent her, deceptively buoying her hopes by saying that the specialists at the university's teaching hospital would be able to save her tiny fetus. The doctors at the UCI Medical Center knew better. They knew that the baby had no chance of surviving.

Walt Disney Co.'s planned Grand Central Creative Campus in Glendale will eventually employ 10,000 workers and include 3.6 million square feet of offices, sound stages and studio production facilities, according to interviews and documents filed with the city of Glendale.

The Irvine Co. said Thursday that the Hyatt Corp. will build a 450-room hotel on a stretch of hilly coastline between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach where the development company is also building 2,600 houses and two golf courses. The Hyatt would be built on part of the 9,500-acre parcel that the Irvine Co. is developing as Newport Coast. The Marriott Corp. has already entered an agreement to build a 1,100-room hotel there that will be one of the largest on the California coast.

About 25 county firefighters were dispatched to Hesperia and other city units in the county were placed on alert Monday as wildfires continued to burn, threatening mountain and desert resort areas. Orange County Fire Department dispatcher Leo Schneider said Monday that a team of firefighters was sent to assist area units in fighting stubborn blazes which have caused the evacuation of campgrounds near Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. Wildfires also caused the evacuation of homes near Palm Desert.

Seemingly out of the blue and just two days after Christmas, the newly active Leo Freedman Foundation bestowed nearly $1 million on 12 arts groups and programs in its first round of grants. What a way to end a rather dismal year, dollar-wise, and begin a new one. Indeed, local arts institutions are bound to have their eyes trained on the Anaheim-based foundation in 1992 and beyond: With assets exceeding $12 million, its trustees say they will be doling out at least $500,000 in grants annually.

A judge has dismissed the first of two Disney lawsuits that tried to block a controversial housing project in the Anaheim Resort District. Orange County Superior Court Judge Stephen J. Sunvold also ruled Monday that hearings in the second suit should be delayed until Anaheim voters decide the development's fate in a June election. "There's no reason to spend time, money and action on this until the voters have their say," Anaheim City Atty. Jack White said.

In an effort to aid the proposed $3-billion Disneyland Westcot resort, Orange County transportation officials will probably vote Monday to seek federal money to build one of Disney's parking garages. And in a major policy breakthrough, a plan tentatively agreed to by Disney, Anaheim and the state Department of Transportation calls for rail and bus stops as well as a park-and-ride facility at the seven-story building.
