Gov. Gray Davis on Friday handed a group of landowners a "doughnut hole" on a platter. The doughnut hole in question is not the fried variety but about 1,000 acres of aging orange groves surrounded by the city of Redlands. Landowners want to develop the land but had feared the city would squelch their plans.

Redlands officials have fired the latest salvo in a long-running dispute over a controversial "doughnut hole," suing the state and calling into question campaign contributions made to Gov. Gray Davis. The "hole" at issue consists of about 1,000 acres of aging orange groves and vacant land, surrounded by the city of Redlands, in San Bernardino County. Although it is in an unincorporated area, it falls under the city's sphere of influence.

Six years after Los Angeles demanded and won a $76-million letter of credit to guarantee repayment of subsidies for Staples Center, the City Council eliminated the requirement on Friday, agreeing with developer's protests that it is no longer necessary. The action does not remove the obligation of the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns Staples Center, to repay the $70 million remaining to be reimbursed to the city.
