VALLEY NEWSWATCH

August 28, 1996|David Wharton and Marc Lacey and Barry Stavro

Big Talk: Two Valley politicians will address the Democratic National Convention this week, although neither will make prime time. . . . Today, congressional candidate Brad Sherman will speak. Assemblywoman Sheila J. Kuehl has yet to write her three-minute speech, set for Thursday. "All I know so far is I'm talking about domestic violence," said Kuehl, who Tuesday was still staring at a blank computer screen, trying to decide what to say.

Fire Watch: As fires continued to burn near Castaic (B1), county animal control officers were on call around-the-clock to evacuate horses and other domestic animals. . . . Jerry White, a field supervisor, worked all night Tuesday, but only after evacuating his own household. "Horses, birds, cats, dogs, sheep and an 80-year-old mother-in-law," White said.

Iron-Clad Deal: Woodland Hills CPA Edward White, above, is the new chairman of Lynx Golf, a golf equipment firm that his investment group bought for about $25 million. His investors include Jack Nicholson and Fred Couples, but that doesn't guarantee success. The $1-billion-plus golf club industry is dominated by four other brands that have 75% of the business (D1).

Dog Days: Normally, high school football players can relax after tough summer practices. But with several Valley campuses on year-round schedules, some athletes must combine workouts with schoolwork (C6). . . . Said Miguel Gomez, a San Fernando High School running back: "Now I get home, and I've got to do my homework before I even think about going to bed."
