Skate parks may bruise the local economy just as much as the skaters who enjoy the park, researchers at UCI?s Center for Trauma and Injury Prevention reported Wednesday. Federico Vada, a UCI professor of emergency medicine, led a team of researchers that studied skate park-related patients at UCI Medical Center. The average cost of an injury was $3,200, including medical costs and lost wages. People older than 25 missed an average of 17 days of work because of their injuries.

The acrid stench of smoke and the sight of snowing ash replaced the scents of ocean air and the salt water spray at Corona del Mar’s main beach Monday. No one manned the guard gate at the parking lot entrance, and the beach was largely deserted, but some people, unfazed by the imminent fire danger and unhealthy air, went about their business. Leslie Edson, who lives across from the beach on Breakers Drive, walked her two dogs. She spent the morning cleaning black ash from her yard, and said there were “big size chunks of it,” besides the small pieces she could see floating to the sidewalk.
