Dalton had nothing but praise for the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station during a 50th anniversary celebration at the base Wednesday, but he was noncommittal about its future in comments after the ceremony. Speaking under cloudy skies to an audience of 300 community leaders, veterans and base employees, Dalton called the military facility "the most cost-effective weapons station in the Navy."

"Hey, I got to see Santa Claus," said the lifelong Seal Beach resident. "I wouldn't have missed it for anything." Stegen, who attended the parade with his wife and children, was among the more than 7,000 people who crowded both sides of Main Street for the city's annual Christmas parade.
