Signaling a return to the days of yesteryear, Manhattan Beach plans to bring back the Manhattan Open volleyball tournament this summer as an amateur event with free admission and a homespun bring-your-own-beach-chair attitude. The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to direct city staff to create a nostalgic-style tournament June 13 and 14 with no bleachers, loud music or paid seating. Anheuser-Busch pledged $25,000 to the event and a local businessman offered the same as a co-sponsor.

The Manhattan Beach City Council turned down a request from Los Angeles County for more money to subsidize lifeguards and beach groomers on the county's 31 miles of coastline. Facing a $400,000 budget shortfall, the county Beaches and Harbors Department requested an increase in funding from area cities, including $200,000 from Manhattan Beach.

City Council members voted to extend their terms by 11 months to avoid a timing conflict between the next council election and the statewide presidential primary. The next council election was scheduled for April, 1996. But state officials changed the 1996 primary from June to March, which would have put the primary only two weeks away from the next council election. That would confuse voters and strain county services, city officials said.

Manhattan Beach Mayor Connie Sieber checked into a four-week chemical dependency program last week, a day after she surprised council members by accusing them of not recognizing her authority. In a statement she issued this week through city officials, Sieber, 50, said she entered the program at St. John's Hospital on May 19. She did not specify the nature of her dependency. But City Manager Bill Smith said Sieber is being treated for alcoholism.

The County Board of Supervisors drew a line in the sand this week over funding for lifeguards on South Bay beaches. The board voted 4 to 1 to pull lifeguards off seven state beaches, including Manhattan and Redondo, this summer if local agencies do not pay more money for the county services. The county is facing a $900-million budget deficit. Officials will give the state formal notice that it can no longer afford to provide any lifeguard services to state beaches after July 1.

South Bay voters sent a mixed message to local candidates Tuesday night, ousting several incumbents in favor of untested challengers but returning some veteran council members to office in an election marked by general voter apathy. The anti-incumbent sentiment was felt in Manhattan Beach, Lawndale, El Segundo and Avalon, where council members were bounced from office.
