The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency received an "incomplete," the state Water Quality Board got a "D," Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Ira Reiner earned an "A minus," and the city of Rosemead flunked out with a big fat "F." So went the grading on the first clean water report card issued Sunday by the East Valleys Organization, a broad-based citizens' group that for the last year has been fighting to clean up the extensive ground water contamination in the San Gabriel Valley.

The war clock was ticking Monday night as Msgr. Patrick Thompson spoke in the parish hall of Nativity Roman Catholic Church in El Monte. Despite the national preoccupation with the Persian Gulf, a forum for candidates in the election next Tuesday for Los Angeles County's 1st Supervisorial District had drawn 650 people. They were, for the most part, blue-collar Latino families, and they wore serious expressions as they sat in folding chairs or stood along the walls.

Thousands of people marched around Exposition Park on Saturday in what authorities said was the largest anti-crime demonstration in Los Angeles history, but few felt the urgency that moved Jesse Martinez. A member of Carpenter's Local 309 and an organizer of the rally, Martinez was awakened late one night last week by the sound of gunfire outside his East Los Angeles home. Stepping out in the darkness, he found a young man, fatally shot, lying face down in the street.

After a stormy, three-hour public hearing Wednesday night, the Baldwin Park City Council narrowly rejected a proposal to bring a card club to the city to raise badly needed revenue. The unexpected vote came after nearly 50 people addressed the council, most of them members of the East Valleys Organization, a church-sponsored group staunchly opposed to the card club idea.

Alarmed by a statewide increase in shooting deaths involving semiautomatic weapons, city officials plan to introduce an ordinance to restrict or ban the sale of military-style assault rifles. If the City Council adopts a ban, the city will join at least six others in California that have prohibited the sale and possession of assault rifles. Congress and the state Legislature are also considering similar proposals.
