Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union and a Latino-rights advocacy group on Monday praised a federal appellate court ruling that will likely have implications for Costa Mesa's anti-solicitation ordinance. In a 3-1 ruling, a 9 t h Circuit Court of Appeals panel on Friday ruled that Redondo Beach's law that prohibits individuals from standing on streets or highways to solicit employment violates constitutional free speech protections. Justices stated that Redondo's ordinance was too broadly worded and could conceivably apply to everyone from Girl Scouts hawking cookies to children selling lemonade.

The Costa Mesa City Council this week repealed a law that banned day laborers from actively soliciting work on city streets. The council unanimously agreed Tuesday night to scrap the ordinance without discussion. Costa Mesa's anti-solicitation law, which was passed in 2005, prohibited job-seekers from attracting drivers' attention by waving arms, making hand signals, shouting, jumping up and down, and waving signs. The law also rendered it illegal for a driver to hire someone standing in the street.

Costa Mesa City Hall made the right call last week in suspending a 5-year-old ordinance that prevents solicitors from aggressively courting motorists. But the reasons for the moratorium appear to be more practical — a similar law in Redondo Beach is being tested in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal — than they do philosophical. Regardless of what happens in Redondo, we hear that some on the Costa Mesa City Council want to review the merits of the law, and we hope they do. For those who haven’t been keeping score, Costa Mesa’s controversial law faces a challenge in federal court from the Tonantzin Collective and the Assn.

REDONDO BEACH - Corona del Mar High freshman Wess Presson, among five underclassmen in the starting lineup, went 2 for 3, but host Redondo Union earned a 9-1 nonleague baseball victory Tuesday. Presson now trails only UCLA-bound senior Billy Eagle for the team hitting lead, but Eagle was home sick Tuesday and it showed. CdM Coach John Emme said sophomore Blake Contant had five strong innings on the mound against the Seahawks (3-3). Josh Bradbury and Keith Long had doubles for CdM (2-4)

They are national and international legends: wooden-hulled, 180- to 215-foot coastal steamers that sailed to more than a score of Pacific Coast ports from Alaska to San Diego - including Newport Beach - from the early 1880s to the late 1940s. They were unglamorous, desperately slow (their top speed averaged 9 knots) and they carried lumber, cattle, hogs, farm produce, passengers and, in later years, cars and trucks. But they were safe. Seaworthy, they rode the waves well, and some of them ventured to destinations in Mexico, Central and South America, and even exotic islands in the South Pacific, where they worked as tramp steamers in Tonga, Samoa and French Polynesia.

LONG BEACH - A two-time cancer survivor who never played indoor volleyball, Jake Gibb is used to having something to overcome. And despite finishing No. 1 in the world on the Federation Internationale de Volleyball beach tour in 2012, a disappointing fifth-place finish in the London Olympics left the then-36-year-old standout in anything but a celebratory mood. The Costa Mesa resident, now 37, said he spent his entire off-season contemplating whether to keep competing on the beach, as well as whether he wanted to eventually make a run at an Olympic medal that has eluded him at the last two Summer Games (he also finished fifth in Beijing in 2008, the first of his two appearances with former partner Sean Rosenthal)

REDONDO BEACH - On the way to its match Tuesday, the bus the Corona del Mar High girls' volleyball team rode in broke down. The Sea Kings had not yet left Orange County and they already had to deal with an issue. Once the Sea Kings made it to Redondo Union on the bus, their season stalled. They didn't stay long as Redondo Union swept, 25-21, 25-17, 25-21, in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 1-AA playoffs. The Sea Kings went home early, much earlier than in three of their previous four section playoff runs.

Baby boomers may remember the Beatles' verse: "It was 20 years ago today, Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play. " How long 20 years seemed when that song was released! Let's double that this October and November to celebrate the 40th anniversaries of the federal Clean Water Act and the passage (Nov. 7, 1972) of Proposition 20, the Coastal Initiative, here in California. Having lived through those 40 years, it doesn't seem like a long time, but to people younger than 40, it is, admittedly, personally prehistoric.

Costa Mesa may not restart enforcement of its anti-solicitation ordinance, despite a recent court ruling that allows another city to do so. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last week sided with Redondo Beach in the city's quest to arrest anyone waving a sign at motorists for work, but the final ruling lies ahead, said Gladys Limón, an attorney with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. "The district court's decision, holding the Redondo Beach's ordinance unconstitutional, and the injunction preventing the ordinance's enforcement, remain in place until the circuit courts' final judgment is issued," Limón said.
