Supporters of restoring the cross that was removed from Los Angeles County's official government seal announced on Monday a third attempt to put the matter to a countywide vote. The issue sparked heated protests in September when the county Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to remove the gold cross that had adorned the seal since 1957 rather than defend it against a threatened lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Shame on the Los Angeles Times. The Times' article on Operation Sparkle ("Residents Pitch In to Clear Litter for Operation Sparkle") Oct. 22 was great as far as it went. There was not one word about it being a Los Angeles Police Department program. In this time of everyone bashing the LAPD, how about some credit where credit is due? Operation Sparkle was created by Deputy Chief Mark Kroeker in 1991 as a way to involve the community in making the San Fernando Valley a better place to live.

Los Angeles lags many smaller California cities in the competition for state and federal funds, according to a study underwritten by secession backers. Breakup advocates seized on the results of the study, released Monday, as evidence that the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood would be more efficient if they split from Los Angeles. Secession opponents, however, denounced the study as biased.
