NEWPORT BEACH New boat parade sees smooth sailing It's been smoother-than-expected sailing for the annual Christmas Boat Parade this year. A shorter route and shorter schedule just instituted this year may have provided the compromise to keep participants and parade-watchers happy.

County health officials continued to try to find the source of the contamination, which has eluded them for nearly two months.

The Banning Ranch Conservancy has entered the fray over a proposed parking lot at Fairview Park. Terry Welsh, president of the Newport Beach-based environmental group, urged recipients in a weekend email to attend Costa Mesa's City Council meeting Tuesday to protest the plan, which calls for 10 parking spaces and a nearby children's play area at the north end of Pacific Avenue.

An environmental group that studied beach litter in Crystal Cove State Park for seven years has found less trash over time and that most debris comes from inland or is dumped onto the beach, rather than washing up from the sea. Volunteers from Coastkeeper Orange County surveyed a 200-yard stretch of beach just south of Pelican Point. Starting in 2003, they collected trash many times a year and analyzed results. While they found everything from lobster traps to condoms, the most common items were made of plastic and came from landlubbers.
