Camp Pendleton's weekly newspaper, The Scout, has been named the military's finest commercial enterprise publication for 1985, base officials announced Monday. Lt. Col. Carl Morrison called the paper's selection for the Thomas Jefferson Award by a panel of civilian journalists who served as judges "just like winning a Pulitzer Prize."

Before allowing reporters to enter her courtroom Tuesday to cover the detention hearing of two juveniles accused of murder, Superior Court Judge Sheridan Reed took the extremely unusual step of demanding that they sign an agreement promising not to reveal the names of the juveniles. If they didn't sign, she wasn't going to let them into the hearing. California law closes hearings involving juveniles to the public, except in clearly specified serious cases, such as murder.

In fact, Hunt won two local Emmys at the ceremony at the Town and Country Convention Center, an annual opportunity for the local television community to schmooze with their own. The only real excitement came near the end of the interminable ceremony when Sagon Penn appeared on stage with producers Charles Landon and Bill Scott.

Almost every radio station in San Diego was salivating over Saturday's grand opening of the Hard Rock Cafe in La Jolla, described by one promotion director as a "promotional watermark" for local radio. At different times, both KKLQ-FM (Q106) and KGB-FM (101.5) believed it had nailed down the right to use its name in conjunction with the party. KKYY-FM (Y95), KFMB-FM (B100), KGMG-FM (Magic 102) and KCBQ (Eagle 105) also were among the stations that talked with Hard Rock over the past few months.
