The City Council is doing the right thing by forming a subcommittee charged with examining ways to attack the dire economic issues facing local retailers. Yet the city apparently has no plans to help businesses with one onerous issue many are now facing: lawsuits over Americans with Disability Act accessibility requirements. The ADA lawsuits have hit hard: One prominent local businessman who spent $70,000 on ADA retrofitting is the current target of a federal lawsuit despite the efforts made and money expended.

Imagine you’re a small business going along, minding your own business, trying to stay afloat in a rotten economy, when a federal lawsuit suddenly lands on your doorstep. Not a pleasant thought. Actually, it’s a very scary thought. And the worst of it is, the lawsuit’s accusations happen to be true. You have been busted by a self-appointed, private enforcer of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Now, not only will you have to make expensive modifications to your property, to which you thought the ADA did not apply, but you’ll have to pay at least $1,000 to the attorney who filed the suit.

The Laguna Beach boys' water polo team donned a new look entering the most important week of the 2011 season. Sporting mohawks, the cutting-edge move united the top-ranked Breakers, who went out Wednesday and mowed down No. 4-seed La Cañada, 14-5, in a CIF Southern Section Division 3 semifinal game at the William Woollett Aquatics Center in Irvine. The one-sided victory allows Laguna (21-5) to reach the Division 3 title game for a second straight year. The 11:45 a.m. championship match Saturday is a rematch of the 2010 division final, as the Breakers take on No. 2-seed Damien at the William Woollett Aquatics Center.

Laguna Beach boys' water polo Coach Ethan Damato wasn't quite sure how it happened, but it did. And he'll take it. Trailing throughout Tuesday's nonleague match against visiting La Cañada, Laguna somehow managed to tie score seconds before the end of regulation, then went through two three-minute overtime periods to pull out a 14-11 victory over the stunned Spartans. The anticipated match-up pitted two of the top teams in CIF Southern Section Division 1: defending-champion Laguna has been ranked No. 1 all season long; La Cañada is ranked fifth.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE ? One home run nearly landed on the softball field. Another landed just before rush-hour traffic on the Ventura (101) Freeway.

La Ca"ada (14-6) likely never faced a talented lineup as fourth-seeded Oaks Christian's (17-7) this season.

The public restrooms at Aliso Beach — the last remnant of the Aliso Pier — are being torn down, making way for more beach restoration area. The existing facilities were slowly decaying, and it was more cost effective for Orange County to build new facilities, said Don Johnson, the project manager. The restrooms were at the base of the Aliso Pier, which was built in 1971. The pier was badly damaged in the storms during the 1997 El Nino season. The pier was demolished in 1999, leaving the restrooms behind.
