B4--INDEPtNtifcNl IA/.,. IHMl Una Reach, Cjlil., Tum.. MjrcH 11, 1W Spring fling Los Angeles County Supervisor Pete Schabarum throws out the f i r s t Frisbee Monday during dedication c e r e monies of a permanent Frisbce course at La Mirada County Park. Games played on the 18-holc, 1,953-yard course follow rules similar to those of golf, with players "teeing off" from circular areas and throwing the Frisboos toward a target post t h a t represents the "hole." The number of throws it takes each player to hit the target determines the score. Schabarum was six over par after two holes. -Slaff Photo by ROBERT GINN SEAL BEACH SURF'S UP (Continued from I'aso R-ll Harbour said, "I just sold a thrcc-and-a-half-fool board to a kid and I'm not even sure he's goinj!

Harbour explained that the transition to the short when a surfer named Nat Yountf showed up for the w o r l d championships in San Diego with a nine-fool, one-inch board and "just smoked everybody-" P r o m there, Harbour said, it became "a peer group thing of who could ride t h e shortest board. Now, it's f i n a l l y coming back to 'what seems to BUILDING DEMOLITION (Continued.from Page !l-l) ' Roy maintained that he h'ad already starter) the (iroji'ct before the court attions were filed and t h a i he "was not covered by the city's reslraininy order. Roy told IXK Angeles Superior Court Judge Norman Duwds the building was, at that point, unsafe as -a result of demolition t h a t h a d already taken place. Dowds refused to issue a restraining order against the contractor but scheduled a hearing for this Friday to bear further testimony as to condition of the structure. The idea of using explosives came after contractors started battering the building with a wrecking ball in the early morning because of daytime con- ges lion in the area. , Just one s h i f t during the predawn h o u r s brought storms of protest f r o m residents of P l y m o u t h West, a nearby senior citizen complex.

Ken Williams, deputy c i t y a t t o r n e y , s a i d a change order in the contract has been prepared by (he engineering depart- m e n t , liut there's t h e question of whether [he city, under its temporary restraining order, cnn approve the change order. "That decision is now being considered by the c i t y attorney's office in the lighl of the amended clause in the restraining order allowing the city to e n g a g e in contraclura! oversight activities," W i l - liams said. He saici, f u r t h e r , (hat "prior lo anyone ever having gone lo court," the contractor had submitted a request for the alternate demolition method. Meanwhile, the e x p l o - sive specialists would not comment on w h e n t h e implosion m i g h t occur, even if approved.

Investigators said John P. Hoogstad, 29, told Ihem Ihe bandit entered the Thrifty Drug Store, 4402 AUantic Ave., at about 8:25 p.m. Sunday and ordered him lo turn over cash from the registers. The g u n m a n scooped up Ihe money, then forced lloogslad to drive him lo Ccrritos Avenue and Market Strict. The bandit got out of floogstad's car and fled at Ihe intersection, investigators said. Cliicken leg trips thief up A 33-year-old San Pedro robbery suspect was arrested as he ale p a r t of his alleged loot--a chicken ley,' Long Beach police reported Monday. Investigators said counterman Douglas Sherman, 18, told Ihem the bandit walked up lo the Jim Dandy Fried Chicken stand, 1158 E. Anaheim St., Sunday, warned he had a gun and demanded money and chicken. Sherman said the bandit was given $26 and a drumstick. Shortly after the robbery, officers Jerry E. Killian and John Pelka, armed with a description of Ihe holdup man, arrested Earl P. Hall, of 961 Upland Ave., as be was m u n c h i n g on a chicken leg while walking down the street near (lie s t a n d . He was identified by tiie victim and booked for investigation of armed robbery 1 . Suspect is 'out-profaiiitied' A bandit who used profanity when be attempted to hold up Ihe owner of a Bellflower store early Monday ran oul empty-handed when the owner replied lo the bandit's demands with profanity of his own, Lakewood s h e r i f f ' s deputies said. Richard Alexander, 52, owner of Ihe Western Industrial and Safety Supply Co., 9-118 Alondra lilvd., told deputies he was working in his office around 12:30 a.m. when the bandit walked in, displayed a revolver and cursed al h i m , demanding money. Alexander said he cursed right back, and the man turned and fled. Gunmen get $90 from store Two gunmen held up (he clerk at a Norwalk shoe store and escaped with about $00, sheriff's deputies reported Monday. Clerk Leslie McKnight, 19, lold deputies the bandits entered Van's Shoe Store, 13301 San Antonio Drive, at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday and ordered her into a closet. She said she heard (he men taking money from (he register, then ripping the telephone from the wall before leaving. Goods worth $2,692 stolen Burglars who entered a Cerrilos home through an unlocked garage took appliances, clothing and camera equipment valued at $2,59?., Lakewood sheriff's deputies reported Monday. Klaus Peters, 30, told deputies the burglars entered the home at 19202 Schcryl Ave. while he was out Sunday afternoon. Peters, who lives in Fullcrlon, said he was staying in Ihe house while the owners were out of town. work best for you' and thal's Ihe way it should be." Dorsey said he is glad In see (he big boards coming back "because they will pul some of the show back in surfing. Wilh the short boards, ordy a real surfer k n e w when someone had a good ride." Harbour said I h e average price for one of his short boards is about $140, with big boards selling for about $15 more. According to Harbour, some of the hottest surfers living in Seal Beach now are Steve Thomas, 15. Eric Kirk, 16, Denis Wade, 21. and Scan Collins and Kurt Augsburger, bolh 23. "Thomas is going to be one of the best," Harbour said. Dorsey said t h i s has been one of the worst winters for waves that he can remember. There h a v e been only three or four good days all winter and "usually there are at leasl a couple of Rood weeks." He said the waves during the season, June IS lo Sept. 15, arc "just about perfect T h e y a v e r a g e aboul six feel, which is groat for beginners and intermediates." Dorsey said Ihe number of surfers ranges f r o m none on some calm, cold winter days to "more than 3.000 al one lime last summer." Even when surfing was o u t l a w e d by I h e Seal Reach City Council from 196-1 through 1968, the really avid surfers risked fines of up to $35 to sneak out for a few quick rides. Dorsey said the council members banned surfing because m a n y of "kids from out of town were going into the stores on Main Street and filling up Ihpir towels with merchandise. They were stealing the town blind." When the cily Recrea- t i o n D e p a r t m e n t w a s formed in 1%8 and "we got some new people on the council, we were able lo convince them lo lift the ban," Dorsey said. "There doesn't seem as m u c h shoplifting anymore." He said the sport has grown so much in the last decade that on good days during the summer the San Gabriel River area-from Third Street to the mouth of the river--is so full of surfers, they are running into each other. Of the 1,308 rescues made by the Seal Beach lifeguards last year, 205 were surfers and about 70 per cent of those hurt suffered head injuries. Dorsey s a i d most of surfers at Seal Beach are between 13 and 17 years old and that the boys outnumber the girls by four loone. Most of the 32 lifeguards on Dorsey's staff--three permanent and 29 who work during the summer- are a\id surfers. Dorsey said he tries lo get oul at least every other day, but "it's nol like when we were kids." Harbour said he doesn't get a chance to get o u t . very often anymore, "but when I was 16. I was always dripping wet." HOW TO HELP RELIEVE SORE EYES AND EYE LIDS Sore eves . . . red, mroflen eye ikJi . . . may be slyes, or oltier minor infection. And rubbing can make ir wors*.
