Mathis Winkler With mostly cloudy skies and low temperatures over Memorial Day weekend, things stayed fairly quiet down by the beaches Saturday and Sunday. But the crowds began to arrive Monday afternoon, as the sun broke through. "There are a lot of people on the beach for a Monday," said Josh van Egmond, a Newport Beach lifeguard. He and his colleagues found a few missing children and returned them to their parents and rescued a couple of people from the ocean.

Paul Clinton City leaders and environmentalists in neighboring Newport Beach say they are worried that the plume of partially treated waste water released off Huntington Beach has headed south and could endanger the state protected waters off Crystal Cove State Park. Every day, the Orange County Sanitation District releases 240-million gallons of partially treated sewage into the ocean off Huntington Beach via an underwater outfall pipe. Citing a 2001 study that examined the movements of the waste water, environmentalist Jack Skinner said he was concerned the plume had drifted dangerously close to waters designated by the state as areas of special biological significance.

Campbell announces new Crystal Cove bill State Sen. John Campbell will again move forward with legislation to turn over operation of the Crystal Cove State Park historic district to a nonprofit organization, he announced Friday. He had written a bill in June that would give a nonprofit group control of maintenance, concessions and the ongoing renovations of the park's historic cottages, but some environmental groups objected to a provision putting local elected officials on the nonprofit group's board of directors.

Once used as a movie set and now a state park, Crystal Cove has now been immortalized in a book. Filled with historic photos and paintings, "Crystal Cove Cottages," debuted in July and made the Los Angeles Times' regional list of bestselling books shortly thereafter. The book's three authors will hold a book signing Sunday at the park. The idea formed when journalist Karen Steen, who now lives in New York but who spent summers at Crystal Cove as a child, was writing an article about residents moving out of the cottages in 2001.

Ever subject to the whims of politics, Newport Beach Assemblyman Chuck DeVore on Wednesday failed to get approval for an audit of improvements at Crystal Cove State Park. DeVore announced in June that he planned to request the audit because the project is behind schedule and over budget. Sending weeks of careful politicking down the drain, one member of the state Joint Legislative Audit Committee left a meeting before the vote on the audit, DeVore spokesman Brian O'Neel, said.

When Stephanie Barger led a group of volunteers to pick up trash in Crystal Cove State Park on Saturday, there were only a few scraps of it left. The week before, the annual California Coastal Cleanup Day had removed most of the visible garbage. Now, nearly all that remained were the specks: Styrofoam, bottle caps and tiny beads of plastic, known as nurdles. Barger, the executive director of the Earth Resource Foundation in Costa Mesa, said those miniature bits of trash are the most deadly.

VIC LEIPZIG AND LOU MURRAY Plants, unlike birds, hold still. We can get really close to the immobile things for as long as we like at Bolsa Chica or Shipley Nature Center, thumbing through 3-inch-thick botanical taxonomy books. Yet we often aren't able to figure out what the heck the blasted plants are called. Field botany has to be the most difficult of all the natural sciences. That's why Vic and I attended a California native plant identification workshop at Crystal Cove State Park in Newport Beach last week.

Ahoy. Last week in the Daily Pilot, there was a picture of a 57-foot yacht sitting on the rocks off Crystal Cove State Park. The story reported that the owner fell asleep while the boat was on autopilot from Avalon to Newport Harbor. The vessel caught my eye because, approximately a year earlier, I had delivered that boat from Ensenada, Mexico, to Newport Beach. I remember the boat because it was a new Carver that could get up on top of the water and cruise at a decent speed for that size of yacht.
