A builder has scaled back plans for one of the last privately owned parcels of undeveloped Southern California coastline, agreeing to preserve the striking canyons, wetlands and sage scrub that mark the bluffs known as Marblehead in San Clemente. The Lusk Co.'s revised plan calls for 358 homes and about 750,000 square feet of commercial development, but will preserve 80 acres as open space, up from about 68 acres in a previous plan.

A holdup team believed to have used the same method to rob 22 hotels in the Southland over the last three months struck Thursday at San Clemente's Holiday Inn. The pair, described as a man in his late 20s with a goatee and a driver with a thin mustache and short black hair, robbed the hotel in the 100 block of South Avenida de la Estrella about 2:15 a.m., said Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Three local taxi companies could face considerably higher fees in 1999 if the city approves a measure today to transfer licensing responsibilities to the county. Sheriff's Department officials in San Clemente are asking the City Council to consider joining the Orange County Transportation Authority Taxi Program, which aims to streamline services by offering one-stop licensing services. The county program also would take over cab inspections, background checks of drivers and drug testing.

In an ocean-view San Clemente neighborhood, firefighters responding to a smoldering garage Thursday morning discovered hundreds of marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $100,000 being nurtured in a sophisticated indoor farm. "It appeared to be just a regular home, a family residence in a nice family neighborhood with a boat parked in the driveway and an SUV in the garage," said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
