A portion of Seal Beach was reopened Friday after a spill of about 100 gallons of oil had caused it to be closed, officials said. The mess was spotted about 3 p.m. Thursday, along a half-mile stretch from the West Anaheim jetty to the pier, said Seal Beach lifeguard Capt. Ross Pounds. "It looked like real, real black crude oil," he said. "It wasn't just a sheen." "There were stretches of oil spots spread out everywhere," said lifeguard Darren Sandvig.

City Councilman William Doane has resigned his seat two years early because of health reasons, he said Thursday. Doane, 83, whose Seal Beach district covers about 60% of Leisure World, said his asthma is getting worse. "I'm just getting too old and too tired. The time has come," he said. His resignation is effective Monday. Doane has served on the council several times since 1991. He would have been termed out in 2006. The city has 30 days to appoint a replacement or hold a special election.

A U.S. immigration judge on Friday rejected efforts by the federal government to deport a Seal Beach bartender for his role in the 1988 killings of two soldiers in Northern Ireland, criticizing the British judicial system for the way it treated the man. The decision caps a four-day trial in a Terminal Island courtroom that centered around the notorious Casement Park killings, in which the two corporals were beaten by a Belfast mob and fatally shot by members of the Irish Republican Army.

Save those quarters for the jukebox. The Seal Beach City Council isn't going to install parking meters on Main Street after all, preserving its distinction as one of the last of Orange County's coastal cities to offer free downtown parking. "It was a very emotional issue for the city," said City Manager John B. Bahorski. "I just think the community wanted to keep what it had. We don't want to change the town." The meter issue had been simmering in Seal Beach for years.

Seal Beach is losing its distinction as the last of Orange County's coastal communities to offer free downtown parking. The installation of 303 parking meters along a three-block stretch of Main Street and on Ocean, Central and Electric avenues has been cleared by the California Coastal Commission and by a 3-2 vote of the City Council. Together, the meters are expected to generate about $500,000 a year for the cash-strapped city.
