Rescue workers spent a second day Sunday searching for a man believed to be Orange County's first ocean-drowning victim of the year. Danny Robert Castro, 21, of Los Angeles was enjoying a family outing Saturday when he disappeared in the surf off Sunset Beach shortly before 1 p.m. Authorities said Castro was swimming alone and may have been pulled out to sea by a rip current.

Federal funds to replenish sand on Orange County's beaches are eroding as fast as the beachfront they are to protect. President Bush has cut almost $5 million from preventive beach-erosion projects for the county in his proposed 2002 federal budget. Hardest hit would be Surfside/Sunset Beach, which usually is hardest hit in the county by beach erosion. The unincorporated coastal community between Seal Beach and Huntington Beach stands to lose $3.

Orange County and two coastal cities stand to lose close to $5 million to replenish eroding beaches under President Bush's proposed 2002 budget. The projects, which are funded by federal, state and local dollars, are conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The corps' proposed 2002 discretionary budget is $3.9 billion, a 14% cut from the current fiscal year.

Nancy Adair is at the helm of her 33-foot Trojan motorboat, Compromise, cruising slowly along the main channel in Huntington Harbour. Multimillion-dollar homes line the man-made waterway, but she is more interested in the boats tied to the private docks of those mansions. Adair points out the boats she has sold or is selling through her Sunset Beach brokerage, Adair Yachts. Over here is a 54-foot Californian cockpit motor yacht with an asking price of $389,000.

The malnourished body of a 12-ton California gray whale washed ashore early Saturday at Sunset Beach, the third to die along the Orange County coast in a month. Officials said they were trying to determine whether the deaths were related and expressed concern that so many whales have washed ashore in such a short time. Usually, one or two dead whales are found along the local coast each year, said Joanette Willert, a ranger with county's Harbors Beaches and Parks Department.

Workers buried two whales Wednesday on Sunset County Beach after the pair of 30-foot mammals washed up nearby earlier in the day. The California gray whales, one weighing 5 tons and the other 15 tons, were hoisted into a 12-foot-deep trench dug by bulldozers as spectators stood by. The larger whale, a 33-foot male, was at least 5 years old and probably died of natural causes, officials said.
