Leaders of the nonprofit Friends of the Seal Beach Animal Shelter say the city is not paying its fair share of the cost to care for homeless animals. Members of the volunteer organization are asking city officials to increase the funding of shelter operations to $9,000 a year from $800. A city task force is being formed to resolve the funding issue. "The question that's being posed is, how much should it cost for them to provide this service?" interim City Manager Jack Shelver said.

The city's Save-Our-Pool effort is $12,000 short of reaching its fund-raising goal of $125,000, according to Nancy Beard, director of parks, recreation and community services. The two-year campaign is designed to raise funds to refurbish the pool at McGaugh Elementary School with new tiling, plaster and decking. Beard hopes the city's 25th annual 5K and 10K races on April 17 will raise enough so that the work can begin in the fall.

The decision caps two months of debate among residents of the College Park West area over whether the project would benefit or harm the neighborhood. The park improvements were designed by a group of residents who have also raised more than $6,000 to pay for the project.

City residents donated about $5,400 this week to keep the Animal Care Center running and help fund a planned expansion of the facility. The money came by way of the city's first telethon, which aired on Comcast Cablevision from 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday. "Within the first half-hour, we had $1,800," said Annelle Aviani, event planner and president of Friends of the Seal Beach Animal Care Center. The largest contribution came from an unnamed resident who delivered a check for $1,000, said Aviani.

Many of these sites are on city property.

City officials don't expect a repeat of the minor flooding that affected more than a dozen beachfront homes over the weekend. Waves as high as 10 feet pounded the coast late Friday night. Damage to homes along Seal Way was limited mostly to flooded garages and saturated lawns. The homes stand at a narrow beach that the city hopes to widen with up to 150,000 cubic yards of sand from the Santa Ana River. The beach runs between the Seal Beach Pier and Anaheim Bay and has been eroding for decades.

Volunteers at this town's animal shelter arrived recently to find a dog tied to the front fence. She was a young German shepherd, a beautiful, well-groomed animal named Silber. Attached were two pages of instructions noting that she liked homemade soup and needed to be walked every day. The find prompted one volunteer to place an angry ad in a local newspaper.

The red shorts said "Seal Beach Lifeguards," but the carpenter's belt around lifeguard Mark Lees wasn't for flotation. In its pockets were nails and a hammer Lees used to build a new lifeguard tower Wednesday. * With new, prefab towers costing almost $16,000 each, the lifeguards, who have a history of scrounging and cutting corners, are saving the cash-strapped city money by building two new towers for $12,500. Sign of the low-budget Nineties?

Each day, right after he checks into work, Seal Beach lifeguard Lt. Steve Cushman heads for a spot north of the pier. It is here, near the crashing surf, where Cushman makes a series of intricate observations that may help unlock the secret of vanishing sand along Orange County's coastline. With notebook in hand, Cushman, 42, records the size of the surf, how the waves broke, ocean temperature and wind speed. Then he tosses a dye packet in the water.
