Three dead sea lions washed ashore at Sunset Beach this morning, and a federal official said they probably had been trapped in fishing nets at sea. The sea lion carcasses were discovered between 10th and 11th streets at Pacific Coast Highway. "The sea lions probably died after being trapped in gill nets" of commercial fishermen, said Joe Cardaro, a wildlife biologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service in Los Angeles. "About 99% of the sea lion deaths in January and February were because of fishing nets."

After 106 years, the Orange County coastal enclave of Sunset Beach was set to disappear next week ? if not in spirit, then at least on official maps ? with its annexation by the city of Huntington Beach. But traditions die hard in this close-knit, independent-minded community, where a greenbelt is the community focal point and residents pick up their mail at the post office because there's no home delivery. Now, a lawsuit has given Sunset Beach a temporary reprieve. The suit, filed by a group of residents angry about new taxes that will be imposed when they become part of Huntington Beach, seeks to scuttle the annexation approved last month by the Orange County Local Agency Formation Commission.

Although a controversial plan to annex Sunset Beach has sparked plenty of worry in the tiny coastal community, Corinne Brubaker insists there's one aspect of small-town life that won't change: the post office. For half a century, the Sunset Beach Post Office on Pacific Coast Highway between 10th and 11th streets has functioned as the community's hub. Aside from a recent coat of buttercup-yellow paint, the one-story building has changed little in that time. Today, as the neighboring city of Huntington Beach seeks to absorb Sunset Beach, residents fear losing their quaint post office, where residents often are greeted by name and sometimes with a hug. Brubaker, the Sunset Beach postmaster, says they need not worry.

Emotions ran high as the Huntington Beach City Council voted late Monday to annex neighboring Sunset Beach over the cries of residents who tried to block the decision in hopes of keeping the funky, unincorporated beach town independent. The council voted 5 to 2 to direct city administrators to complete an application with the Orange County Local Agency Formation Commission to acquire Sunset Beach, the city's northern neighbor along Pacific Coast Highway. Mayor Cathy Green and Mayor Pro Tem Jill Hardy dissented.

Nancy Howell's bid to drive blight from Pacific Coast Highway appeared to pick up speed this week when the County Board of Supervisors selected a consultant to study traffic and drainage conditions on the heavily traveled street. Howell, a Huntington Harbour resident who owns a business in Sunset Beach, also got a lift earlier this summer when the California Highway Patrol stepped up enforcement action against traffic and parking violators.
