The city's municipal code required Councilwoman Jane Robbins to collect the signatures of at least 20 registered Compton voters by last Saturday. Her petition contained 21 signatures, but City Clerk Charles Davis ruled that two of them were invalid.

If you are owed a tax refund, filing your return electronically has the advantage of getting the money to you quicker. If you do not deserve the refund, the electronic system gets federal investigators after you quicker too. On Wednesday, the Justice Department announced the indictments of nine people in the Los Angeles area for electronically filing false tax returns for 1990. By allegedly claiming refunds owed to fictitious persons, they were able to collect thousands of dollars.
