DANA POINT, Calif. (AP) - Hundreds of surfers and rowers have honored Hobie Alter's request by paddling out in the Pacific in his memory. Alter, who died in March at age 80, revolutionized surfing by developing the foam surfboard that was lightweight and maneuverable. During the Hawaiian paddle-out ceremony, surfers splashed water to the sky. The Orange County Harbor Patrol boat sprayed water, creating a rainbow.

SANTA PAULA, Calif. (AP) - About 150 people who ordered this week at Del Taco in Santa Paula were mistakenly charged thousands of dollars. Customer Michael Cole says he was charged $4,050 for one CrunchTada Pizza and two beef tacos. Del Taco spokesman Brian Devenny says all charges will be refunded.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento County authorities are asking residents and business owners to provide video-surveillance footage to law enforcement investigators. The Sacramento Bee reports that officials are encouraging property owners with surveillance cameras to sign up for the Sheriff's Electronic Eye program. The voluntary registry would alert law enforcement agencies when there are any privately owned surveillance cameras in areas of interest to investigators.

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office wants money to fight drug-smuggling panga boats that have washed along the central coast. Sheriff Ian Parkinson plans to ask county supervisors Tuesday to spend nearly $500,000 in federal grants to buy a response boat and other equipment. The San Luis Obispo Tribune reports the 27-foot Defender Class boat would be used to tow confiscated panga boats to nearby Morro Bay for disposal.
