"There has been a lot of misinformation and a lot of concern and anger on the part of the public," said Joel Bellman, a press deputy for Yaroslavsky. "It was a good faith effort to create new opportunities for people to play on the beach that they didn't have under the old ordinance."
Reports that supervisors had ratcheted up fines for throwing footballs and Frisbees on the county's beaches to $1,000 made international headlines, became a point of ridicule on local talk radio and infuriated locals.
Bellman said Yaroslavsky's office alone had fielded dozens of phone calls and e-mails from irate constituents since the first news reports this week.
Bellman said the reports of $1,000 fines were erroneous and apparently taken from another part of the ordinance that refers to misdemeanors such as public nudity.
But Bellman said lifeguards were more likely to just direct overzealous beach football players to another area if they were causing a problem. He said the intent of the law was to protect children and families from being trampled, not to ruin anyone's fun.
"We're not about making the beach an unpleasant experience for people and coming on like some totalitarian police force. They are going to be mellow about it," Bellman said.

Says Joel Bellman , press liaison for Yaroslavsky , The Board has been very tepid on the idea of an outside constituency coming in to break up the district..He points out that if the initiative passes , there would be 57 counties in California deciding the fate of Los Angeles County.Why should voters in other jurisdictions decide how we should be governed?.
Polanco says the County can forestall that eventuality by placing its own breakup proposal on the November ballot : The state would not go forward if we do ours , Bellman confirmed.He says , faced with those options , Chances are really good that the County will come up with its own proposal.The County has a proposal wending its way through the bureaucracy , he adds , though the County proposal would not include term limits.Bellman argues that if voters are unhappy with any supervisor , they can always vote him out of office.But , he also contends that term limits guarantee that no one will be around long enough to gain any experience--have no time to learn the ropes and develop a deep commitment to their constituents..
The Board is split on the issue of a breakup.
Bellman also argues that the state proposal would leave the County strapped for funds and unable to be as responsive to its constituents as it currently is.Polanco's measure , he says , would take the current budget and split it nine ways.Bellman points out that Yaroslavsky's office only has about 25 people on its payroll , not counting the pool of 125 or so assistants who serve functions for the supervisors as a group.The fewer bodies we have , the longer you have to wait..The County proposal would provide more money than the state version to accommodate the breakup.
The proposal must be passed by the supervisors and be ready for the ballot by August.But even then , the proposal on the ballot would not indicate exactly how the district would be redrawn.
That would be based on information from the 2000 census , says Bellman.Anyone who would like to register an opinion about the breakup , or how those lines should be drawn , can call the supervisor's office at ( 213 ) 974-3333.
