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?

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.

The Pacific Stock Exchange said Tuesday that it will extend its trading day by 20 minutes to 1:50 p.m. West Coast time starting Oct. 24 to give brokers and investors a "second crack" at the market. The exchange, with trading floors in San Francisco and Los Angeles, already permits the trading of many stocks listed on East Coast exchanges until 1:30 West Coast time and 4:30 p.m. eastern time. That is half an hour after the eastern exchanges close.

Glendale school officials say they will cancel plans to open what would have been one of the state's first full-time evening high schools in September because of a lack of student interest. The proposed school--praised as an innovative solution to overcrowded campuses--was set to operate at Glendale High School under a different name, with a different principal, staff and student body, from about 2 to 9 p.m. on weekdays, hours when classrooms are generally not in use.

Looking to tap into a surprisingly brisk market for making copies in the middle of the night, Staples said Wednesday that it will leave 15 of its office supply stores open around the clock. The retailer had tested the 24-hour concept in four stores--one in West Los Angeles, two in the Boston area and one in Springfield, Pa.--before deciding to open more all-night stores in nine states, mostly in areas near colleges or in dense urban communities.

MCI Communications Corp., sharpening its aim at the $18-billion business long-distance telephone market, Wednesday unveiled a new package of services and discounts for small- and medium-sized businesses.
