A Wisconsin-based insurance and credit company took control of Shoreline Village last week after former owners of the waterfront shopping and dining complex fell behind on debt payments. A foreclosure sale Sept. 1 failed to attract a buyer for the 60,000-square-foot complex, so the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., the major creditor for the former owners, obtained the property.

Roomier than most hotel rooms, the boats include galleys, living rooms and sequined reflections from the harbor itself. The tab? Our one-night, two-day stay totaled $275, including $50 for meals.

Santa Claus is coming to town--specifically to the shopping centers. And, he will be running on a tight schedule. Santa's journey begins on Friday, when he makes his arrival at Los Cerritos Center. The celebration will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a performance by the Fleet Street Band followed by a musical production, "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," by a cast of elves, reindeer, singers and dancers. There will be face-painting and cookie decorating stations for children.

A 2 1/2 -mile stretch of coastline from 1st Place to Belmont Pier in Long Beach was closed Sunday after about 1,400 gallons of raw sewage spilled into the ocean, Fire Department officials said. The spill Saturday night originated in a leaking sewage line near 65 S. Cedar Ave. The sewage entered the storm system and reached water near Shoreline Village, at the mouth of the Los Angeles River. This is the second sewage spill in two weeks that has prompted beach closures. The beaches will remain closed until test results conclude that bacteria levels are within state limits.

A decline in tourism and the closure of one of Shoreline Village's anchor restaurants last year have led owners of the downtown waterfront shopping and dining complex to consider filing for bankruptcy, officials said. Shoreline Village Associates, a group of investors that leases the property from the city of Long Beach, owes about $430,000 to the city for nine months' rent.

Lax administration of the city's lease with operators of Shoreline Village, a 46-shop showplace on the downtown waterfront, has cost the city at least $96,000 since it opened in July, 1983, the city auditor has reported. The city has lost the money mostly because Specialty Villages, operator of the dining, amusement and shopping development, negotiated subleases with tenants that conflicted with its master lease with the city, City Auditor Robert E. Fronke reported.

For years, the sight of Passport used to make us all shake our heads and utter a running commentary on its slow-running merits. This was about a fear of falling behind one of the red shuttle buses, named Passport, often clogging the streets of Long Beach, particularly along Ocean Boulevard. But Passport just may be the best tool to get you to the U.S. Olympic swimming trials, which start Wednesday in downtown Long Beach at the temporary aquatic complex.

If Las Vegas is Sin City, the resort half an hour east alongside Lake Las Vegas is more like Sun City. As much as we relished the peace of Viera, a just-opened condominium-hotel at the new MonteLago Village of shops and restaurants, we wondered who besides us would choose this languid retirement community-like setting over the high-energy smorgasbord of the Strip. The answer came while we were humming across the lake in a canopied, 10-passenger electric water taxi.

Thank you for the article on the carrousel at the Santa Monica Pier (Taste Trends: Carrousel Without Pier, March 24). Carrousels are a part of Americana that everyone can relate to, no matter what their racial or economic background. Almost everyone can remember the joy and happiness of riding a carrousel as a child, fantasizing that he or she was a knight on a charger, a cowboy chasing Indians, or any number of wonderful things. There are several other carrousels in the Los Angeles area that shouldn't be forgotten.
