A bank's branch office in Alhambra is helping Fame Rybicki become famous. The 91-year-old former school administrator and community activist was startled to discover that a photograph taken of her in August 1926 had been incorporated into a large mural that decorates a newly opened Wells Fargo office on the city's Main Street. The mural is a montage of historic photos that salute 112-year-old Alhambra's early days. A 5-year-old Rybicki is shown standing with family members and uniformed attendants in front of several cars gassing up at her father's service station.

The FBI has opened a branch office in Lancaster in response to a rise in white-collar crime and bank robberies in the Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys.

Foresters would meet in Pinchot's D.C.-area home, choose new areas to become national forests and then retire for drinks. But the camaraderie was gone five years later, when Pinchot was dumped by then-President Taft. Ever since, controversy has tinged the agency's reputation.

Hard-edged and avant-garde, oozing with attitude and moody lighting, the interiors created by Shubin and Donaldson--two men in their 40s who shuttle between offices in Culver City and Santa Barbara--are a world away from the paneled-wood boardrooms of yesteryear.
