City-owned C. Russell Cook Park was expanded by nearly 4 acres recently when a previously fenced-off area was opened for use as soccer fields. The park, which consists of three parcels along Calle Arroyo adjoining San Juan Creek, now covers 19 acres. It was named for a civic activist who founded the Fire Department. Ron Sievers, director of public lands, said the park size will increase. "As money from local development becomes available, we'll use it to prepare more of the parkland in the area."

City Council members went to bat recently for sluggers in the San Juan Capistrano Little League, voting for a new baseball field at the city's Sports Park. Under the plan, the park's existing softball diamond would be converted during Little League season, February through June, to a baseball field exclusively for senior and major league players 10 to 15 years old. Some residents have opposed the new field, saying that it will have a negative effect on other local sports organizations.

Saying the city doesn't have the means to finance a larger community center, the City Council this week decided to stick with original plans for the $1.8-million project. By a vote of 3 to 2, the council decided to stay with its current plan for a 9,180-square-foot center, including a 1,800-square-foot community hall and a game room and lounge for seniors. They opted against a plan that would have enlarged the community hall to 4,200 square feet and cost the city an additional $846,000.

The City Council has voted to proceed with a joint study of a proposed $30-million sewage treatment plant--and to pay all of the Capistrano Beach Sanitary District's costs for that study until Dec. 31. Sanitary district officials had asked that their joint effort be dropped because they couldn't afford their share of the cost, $2,400 a month. Officials also said they feared that San Juan Capistrano eventually would scrap plans for the sewage treatment plant.

It was more than a critical victory, if that's possible. It was more like a cool breeze. Technically, no one in the sweltering Laker locker room late Friday night could feel it, but it was there, bringing relief to one team and two players who had been taking the heat. Vlade Divac, who made his free throws, and Cedric Ceballos, who made his first appearance of the series, are heroes again.
