Sail America made it official Friday: Because San Pedro Bay has better wind than San Diego, that's where it will meet New Zealand's challenge for the America's Cup next September. San Pedro Bay is the area from Pt. Fermin at the southern tip of San Pedro--known to local sailors as "Hurricane Gulch"--to Seal Beach, encompassing the federal breakwater. The next step will be to select a so-called host city, which would be the shore base for the race headquarters and media center.

Cinema Paradiso The Warner Grand Theatre is getting grander. Over time the 1931 movie palace's wooden armrests had become worn and scarred, cracking Naugahyde covered the seats and the air-conditioning consisted of a primitive basin filled with chunks of ice. But now the armrests boast a new coat of finish and the seats have been reupholstered in green Jacquard chenille with a geometric pattern matching the original Art Deco balcony design.

Leaders of New Zealand's sailing syndicate say contesting the America's Cup in their monohull against Sail America's catamaran will be "a bloody farce," and they aren't even thinking about doing it in San Pedro Bay. "We are shipping our boat to San Diego," spokesman Peter Debreceny said by phone from Auckland Wednesday.

There are distinct signs when a pitcher has begun to collapse under pressure: sweat on the hands, pacing on the mound, panic in the eyes. Right-hander Steve Taylor of San Pedro reacts differently to pressure. "I don't want to sound overconfident, but I don't get nervous at all," he said. "I become calmer and have a tendency to smile." Yell at him, load the bases against him, threaten to hit one of his pitches into San Pedro Bay. All that produces is one of Taylor's sinister grins.

Environmental groups, including organizations seeking to clean up Santa Monica Bay, are suing the Port of Long Beach, alleging that it is allowing its tenants to release toxic and carcinogenic pollutants into San Pedro Bay. The National Resource Defense Council, Santa Monica BayKeeper and Heal the Bay filed papers in U.S. District Court on Thursday demanding that the port take steps to stop Arco, Pacific Coast Cement and Toyota, among others, from releasing pollutants into storm drains.

Two men and a woman believed to be in their early 30s were drowned when their car roared off the Cabrillo Beach boat launching ramp at high speed and into the waters of San Pedro Bay. Los Angeles firefighters in scuba gear found the car in 30 feet of water and recovered the bodies about 40 minutes later. All three were pronounced dead at the scene when resuscitation efforts were not successful.

The city of Carlsbad plans to dredge out Batiquitos Lagoon so that salt water can run in. This will earn mitigation credits for the Port of Los Angeles, allowing it to fill in salt-water acreage in San Pedro Bay. The Port of Los Angeles will pay for the dredging and will shower its gratitude on the officials and staff of Carlsbad. When it's done, Batiquitos Lagoon will be a salt-water bay, tidally flushed twice a day. Residents will schedule their parties, and Realtors their appointments, at high tide to avoid the low-tide mud flats.

The America's Cup defense is expected to be held in San Pedro Bay in September, and while it appears that Long Beach will be host for the world-famous yacht competition, its impact could spill over into nearby San Pedro--in the form of money, tourists and traffic. Los Angeles officials acknowledge that Long Beach, with its convention center and major hotels, is far better suited for the international event and the extensive media coverage it will draw than San Pedro.

President Reagan this week signed a water-projects bill that includes authorization for the first phase of a proposed $4-billion expansion of the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The bill also authorizes the Army Corps of Engineers to study landslide areas in Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills to determine what can be done to stop shoreline erosion at the foot of the Portuguese Bend slide and to stabilize the Flying Triangle slide.

Although money problems still stand in the way, the San Pedro Historical Society's effort to restore the turn-of-the-century Muller House began last week with work on the new foundation. It has been three years since Bill Muller, a grandson of the original owner, gave the society the 10-room Colonial Revival house on the condition that the group move it from its 19th Street site, which Muller planned to sell to a developer.

The book dealer works seven days a week at his used bookstore, The BookHouse, in South Pasadena. On the Waterfront: Sunday morning, I'll head down to Utro's at the Wharf, next to the San Pedro fishing fleet. Geno, the cook, makes the best breakfast potatoes I've ever had. I eat a good, solid American breakfast out on the patio and watch the harbor--and myself--slowly come to life.

Ending a three-year fight over implementation of the federal Clean Water Act, the city of Long Beach has reached a tentative agreement with state water officials over a plan to deal with toxic storm water plaguing Santa Monica and San Pedro bays. The proposed plan, expected to be ratified at a meeting of the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board on Wednesday, has the agreement of all sides in the nasty dispute.

Citing "the increased potential" for flooding, Gov. Pete Wilson on Monday vetoed legislation to turn the 58-mile Los Angeles River corridor into an urban parkway augmented by commercial development and a high-speed railway. Sen. Art Torres (D-Los Angeles) had pushed the proposal through the Legislature to set up the Los Angeles River Conservancy as a way of launching a sweeping plan to revitalize riot-scarred areas along the river corridor.
