The teen-age skateboarding arrests are unthinkable! As the mother of two grown sons who skateboarded day and night when they were 15 years old, I say extreme treatment is an understatement of the arrests. I feel sorry that the boys and their parents had to go through such abusive treatment. GINNY FAIRBROTHER, La Mirada

The owners of a large commercial and retail center will ask the City Council tonight to consider banning skateboarding and roller skating on their property. At the 42-acre Centerpointe La Palma plaza, skateboarders have ripped out concrete parking stall dividers to build jumps, chipped corners from buildings and scratched the paint off benches in the process of performing tricks, property manager Julie Olin said Monday.

After receiving a number of complaints from merchants, the City Council this week approved an ordinance that bans skateboarding from certain areas of the city, including shopping malls and some public grounds.

At the request of miffed 15th Street residents, the city's Traffic Affairs Committee plans to recommend to the City Council that skateboarding along that street from the ocean to the bay be banned. Jean VanOrnum, who brought complaints of property damage caused by skaters to the City Council, said a ban at Newport Pier forced the skaters south to 15th Street. She said skateboarders whiz in and out of traffic, endanger pedestrians and destroy public and private property.
