Business Hours

Your editorial "It's Outrageous" (June 28) simply proves that one man's poison is another man's cure. Permit a resident of the area to comment on your editorial. There is no question that we need public portable toilets throughout the downtown area. Perhaps housing can be provided in the large garages, like those The Times is building next to its offices? Since these structures are not in use after business hours, it is no loss to let them stay there. Los Angeles Times, what do you say?

Fremont General Corp., the bankrupt Brea financial services holding company, won a court order allowing its Fremont Investment & Loan to be acquired by a unit of CapitalSource Inc. CapitalSource Bank will acquire a "substantial portion" of Fremont Investment & Loan's assets, Fremont said. CapitalSource Bank will take over all of the bank's branches and deposits, the companies said. Fremont, once the nation's fifth-largest subprime lender, listed $362 million in assets in a July 3 filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Santa Ana. A spokesman didn't immediately return a call seeking comment after business hours.

Work continues on a 2.1-mile segment of Coldwater Canyon Boulevard, a twisting route favored by commuters that is closed during business hours through April 25. The canyon route is closed from Ventura Boulevard to Mulholland Drive from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays. At night and on Sundays, one lane is open in each direction. The closures are part of a $62-million DWP project to replace half a mile of 99-year-old water pipe. Four years ago, part of the main broke at Ventura Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon, causing $7 million in damage when an estimated 4 million gallons of water flooded homes and businesses.

A gang member who allegedly helped a friend stab a college student in the head with a screwdriver at a Garden Grove cyber cafe has been convicted of murder in a case that triggered a citywide crackdown on late-night Internet parlors. The attack, the first fatality at one of the city's many cyber cafes, prompted city leaders to enact curfews and other measures targeting the gathering spots, but those regulations stalled after business owners sued the city.

For more than half the weekend, West Germany is a shopper's wasteland. Stores are closed at 2 p.m. Saturday and are not reopened until Monday morning. In Italy, there is the post-lunch break. Most shops are closed for a couple of hours in the afternoon. In England, it is legal to buy a newspaper on Sunday but not a book, to shop for fresh fruit and vegetables but not the same foods if they have been canned or bottled.
Whether a child is dreading the end of summer or counting the days until he or she can return to the classroom, one thing about the back to school season is certain: Parents are going to be shopping. Clothes, lunch boxes, gym shorts, No. 2 pencils and book bags aside, this year parents are finding the return to school potentially more hectic--and expensive--than ever as schools lean increasingly on families for the everyday supplies that keep a classroom running.

Those lines at the post office are as much a holiday tradition as mistletoe and as unavoidable as your Aunt Edna's fruitcake. But no pouting, no stomping of feet, no screaming "This blouse isn't going to make it to Cleveland on time!" will be permitted this year. Folks who don't get their holiday packages off early won't have anyone to blame but themselves and will definitely make Santa's naughty list. Or so says the U.S. Postal Service.
