Funding for July 4 fireworks uncertain after city decides a fenced-off music show would set a bad precedent.The City Council has rejected a Fourth of July beach concert that was intended to pay for this year's fireworks show. Exasperated event volunteers said the city will now have to foot the bill itself if it wants pyrotechnics over the pier. On the table was a proposal to hold a three-day concert series on the south side of the pier featuring acts such as the Temptations, Donna Summer or Earth, Wind and Fire, running from July 1 to 3. The concert would be fenced-off and admission would be $30. About $100,000 in proceeds would have been donated by Arizona-based organizer Face-to-Face Attractions to pay for the fireworks.

The day after Thanksgiving, it will be another reunion of sorts. Four decades ago, music-lovers walked past the Golden Bear sign overlooking Pacific Coast Highway and went in to see Peter White perform.
