Beaches will have partial clearing in the afternoon, with highs in the mid- to upper 60s. Sea breezes should reach 12 to 18 m.p.h. Temperatures in the coastal strip will range from 67 to 72 today and 70 to 75 Saturday and Sunday.

A recent city survey found that garbage pickup is the public's favorite municipal service. No wonder: It's efficient, environment-friendly and, for most, free. Although most apartment and condo dwellers and businesses pay for garbage pickup, residents of single-family homes do not, thanks to the so-called People's Ordinance of 1919. The unusual law was spurred by civic anger over a Los Angeles entrepreneur who was charging to pick up San Diego garbage and then selling it as pig slop, reaping a large profit.

A veteran federal prosecutor who is the president of the Hispanic National Bar Assn. was recommended Friday by Sen. Barbara Boxer to be named U.S. attorney for the high-profile border region of San Diego and Imperial counties.

These are not the best of times for San Diego County Sheriff Jim Roache. Elected in 1990 as a reformer after 20 years of ironfisted rule by his predecessor, Roache has endured continual controversy over personnel decisions, an embarrassing no-confidence vote by the Deputy Sheriffs Assn., media criticism over his management style, and sniping by an in-house publication called Silver Star.

The U.S. Border Patrol, under the leadership of first-year chief agent Gustavo de la Vina, has bolstered its deployment of plainclothes officers along the U.S.-Mexico border and elsewhere in the San Diego area. It was an agent in civilian dress who shot and killed a 17-year-old Mexican man Sept. 8 in an incident that has triggered a $30-million wrongful-death claim by the victim's relatives against the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, parent body of the Border Patrol.

Siding with the adoptive parents in a wrenching tug of war over a San Diego child, the California Supreme Court on Monday refused to give custody of a 4-year-old boy to the biological father who has sought to block his son's adoption. In a 6-1 decision, the court denied Mark King, 25, parental rights on the grounds that he failed to accept parenthood promptly upon learning of his former girlfriend's pregnancy. The court also said that the child, known as Michael H.

San Diego County animal control officers on Wednesday seized 26 nonpoisonous, exotic snakes--some more than 10 feet long and weighing more than 35 pounds--from a San Carlos snake breeder, authorities said. The snakes, the majority of them pythons, were confiscated about 9 a.m. from Gary Sipperley, at his home in the 6700 block of Renkrib Avenue. Some 500 snakes at the house were not seized, but were catalogued by San Diego Zoo herpetologists--experts in the study of snakes--said Sally Hazzard, director of the county's animal control department.
