San Onofre State Park has its renowned surfing beaches, a nuclear power plant and bluff-top camping along old U.S. 101. And then there's Trail 6. Swimsuits are optional at Trail 6, at the southern tip of the park. That in itself has never been a problem. But now the popular, secluded strip of sand at the foot of the trail is experiencing rocky times that threaten its tranquillity and perhaps its future, park officials warn. The problem is that people are having sex there.

The state attorney general has warned operators of Orange County's toll road system that plans to build a tollway extension through the popular San Onofre State Beach park are unacceptable. In a strongly worded letter to the Transportation Corridor Agencies, Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer said noise, air pollution, visual and other environmental effects of the proposed Foothill South tollway would be damaging to the park, which is just over the San Diego County line.

For 40 years, they have been wandering in the sand. They part the sea with their surfboards each day before dawn, and then the mystical, white-haired men proceed to walk on water. The Bible, though, has nothing to do with it. This is about the beach, plain and simple. Surfing is their passion; volleyball, cards and Polynesian music their pastimes. A small stretch of shoreline just south of the San Diego County line is their home. After all, it has been in the family for three generations.

The San Diego Sheriff's Department has suspended its search for the third person aboard a plane that crashed into the ocean Tuesday off San Onofre State Beach. A helicopter searched the shoreline Friday morning for signs of Edward Muhammad, 25, of Inglewood, but found nothing. The Sheriff's Department search and rescue dive team now is helping collect evidence and debris, said Sheriff's Lt. Guy Chambers.

A $13-million project is underway to reduce motorist delays and expand hours of operation at the Border Patrol's much-maligned checkpoint on Interstate 5 south of San Clemente. Besides adding two northbound lanes beginning half a mile south of the checkpoint, the project calls for a new administration office at the site and all-weather protective canopies for Border Patrol agents as they check passing vehicles for illegal immigrants and smuggled drugs.

The city this week joined neighboring San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente by passing a resolution supporting the closure of the U.S. Border Patrol's San Onofre checkpoint. The City Council's resolution, which also backs the closing of a checkpoint in Temecula, supports legislation proposed by Rep. Ron Packard (R-Oceanside) that would shift funding for the checkpoints to those along the border.
