There has been a steep drop in crime in the San Fernando Valley so far this year, and there have been some small gains by the Los Angeles Police Department in terms of technological capability and funds for overtime. All come as welcome news in a region struggling to recover from various woes. The fact remains, however, that some of the decrease may be as easily attributable to the earthquake and its aftermath (criminals can be displaced, too) as to new crime-fighting techniques.

A valve problem found later in the space shuttle's main propulsion system delayed liftoff from Cape Canaveral until at least Monday. The valve, which controls the flow of fuel, appeared to be sluggish during routine operations. The bolt problem occurred Sept.

Darkroom equipment that malfunctioned caused a small, backyard shed to go up in flames Thursday morning in the 100 block of Virginia Street, fire officials said. Three Ventura Fire Department engines, one ladder truck and 14 firefighters responded to the residence at 5:36 a.m. The blaze was extinguished in less than 10 minutes. No one was injured, but officials estimate there was $2,000 damage to the structure and an additional $2,000 loss in darkroom photography equipment.

The space shuttle Discovery's five astronauts cranked up their science instruments after reaching orbit Thursday, but ground controllers quickly encountered trouble in getting vital data on the Earth's ozone data. Two ozone monitors--one American and one German--had trouble sending measurements to the ground. German researchers began receiving good data from their device after switching to another channel on the shuttle antenna but then had to contend with an instrument-pointing problem.

The train from New Delhi to Pune is poised for departure. Vendors selling fruit, betel nut, tea, Hindi comics and silver-tinted sunglasses scurry along the platform. The dark red carriages begin to roll down the tracks. Hundreds of people frantically rush to jump on, and others frantically rush to jump off. Muslim mothers in black veils, soldiers in khaki, fat businessmen reading newspapers and babies clutching the window bars peer out as the train pulls away.

Blaming a breakdown of pumping equipment, Newport Beach officials said Wednesday that more than 200 residents evacuated during a toxic-chemical fire Sunday at a metal-finishing plant would be kept from their homes a fourth night. Cleanup workers were expected to meet with fire and city officials at 6 a.m. today to reassess the situation and determine when employees of the Hixson Metal Finishing plant and nearby residents can return to the evacuated area.

Month after month, the Los Angeles Police Academy pumps out scores of eager young police officers--and promptly sends them into overcrowded police stations, outfits them with outmoded equipment and forces them to fritter away time with costly and antiquated procedures.

The shot clock went haywire. The coaches went ballistic. Passes went flying out of control. Shots went everywhere but in the basket. Cal State Fullerton and Long Beach State, two young teams bent on self-destruction, played a strange, sloppy game Thursday night. Long Beach seemed to maintain its poise a bit better, though, and stumbled away with a 96-87 victory in Titan Gym.
