Judy Corbett's days as a lawbreaker are finally over. After eight years of operating a costume-making business out of her North Hollywood home in violation of city zoning laws, Corbett was given a temporary exemption from the statutes last week by a city zoning appeals board. "Usually, you think about bad guys circumventing the law," she said. "I'm just trying to get a business going." But Corbett's reprieve is for only two years.

Supporters of a woman who for 30 years has been using her back-yard pool to teach children how to swim have come to her rescue after Los Angeles County health officials ordered her to shut down her business. B Burwell, owner of Mrs. B's Swim School, wants the county to relax its rules for back-yard pools that also are used commercially. "We need to enlighten everybody," she said. "There are very few swim schools open any more."
