Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Darrell Hardin at (562) 799-4100.

A Seal Beach housing project halted for more than a year because Native American remains were unearthed on the property will proceed after the developer agreed to scale down the number of homes and preserve part of the burial site. The California Coastal Commission's approval on Thursday of developer John Laing Homes' proposal clears the way for soil grading to be completed for 64 luxury homes in Hellman Ranch near the Los Angeles County line.

Along Pacific Coast Highway, the beach filled Monday with holiday revelers and the air was thick with the smell of bonfires. A few miles inland, at the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, 52-year-old Patrick Gorman recalled the smells he associates with Memorial Day. Sweat and diesel fuel. As a child, it meant that Gorman's father, Michael, had returned home from weeks or months under the sea.

"Mayberry-by-the-Sea" may keep its monopoly on small-town charm a little longer. Seal Beach, the last coastal city in Orange County without on-street parking meters, approved a plan in September to install 301 meters along Main Street, a tree- and bench-lined strip that residents liken to Andy Griffith's fictional home. But last week, the California Coastal Commission sent the city a letter that put the plan on hold.

Former Councilman Shawn Boyd pleaded guilty Friday to a felony conflict-of-interest charge that will bar him from ever again seeking public office. Boyd, 34, admitted hiding his financial relationship with Richard Hall, owner of the Seal Beach Trailer Park, who made a $4.5-million profit after the city financed the park's sale last year to a nonprofit group. The judge placed Boyd on three years' probation and fined him almost $50,000.

California Coastal Commission officials and a developer failed Tuesday to agree on how to handle the remains of at least 18 Native Americans, meaning the company still can't resume work on a gated community in Seal Beach. At issue is how to handle human bones and artifacts that have been unearthed at the 18-acre Heron Pointe site and whether digging can continue if more remains are found on the land.

A modest fourplex with fading pink paint is at the center of a storm over how Seal Beach should spend its money and whether the city should help low-income families move into an oceanfront neighborhood. Half a block from the beach, the building was owned for 30 years by a Pasadena woman who used one unit as a seaside retreat and rented out the other three. When she died last year, her estate put the property, at 1119 Ocean Ave., up for sale. An auction is set for today in Pasadena.
