State officials are looking into whether aides to Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn improperly interfered in negotiations for a lease at the city's port to curry favor with a potential airport contractor. A top aide to Hahn acknowledged that officials intervened on behalf of one shipping company seeking more space at the port, but said they did nothing wrong. The state has an interest in harbor leases because the Port of Los Angeles is located on land provided to the city by the state.

The Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved the $43-million purchase of a 10-acre parcel downtown for use as a surface parking lot. The property at the northeast corner of Alameda and 1st streets, the site of the former Los Angeles Soap Co. plant, had been entitled for commercial and residential uses. Atlanta-based Trammell Crow Residential negotiated to buy the land to build up to 600 units of housing, but discussions were terminated after the city made its offer to buy the site.

The U.S. attorney's office has ordered Los Angeles to turn over records from closed meetings of the Harbor Commission as part of its probe into contracting practices at the city's port, airport and Water and Power departments. The subpoena, dated April 26, requires officials to turn over notes from three meetings last year, including one at which Mayor James K.

A jury found former Los Angeles city commissioner Leland Wong guilty of public corruption Thursday, ending a criminal investigation that figured in former Mayor James K. Hahn's 2005 election defeat. Wong, a Hahn appointee and longtime member of the city's volunteer commissions overseeing city contracts, was found guilty on 14 felony counts. He was found not guilty of seven other corruption charges. The district attorney's office said Wong faces a potential sentence of more than 10 years.

Johnny Fugate says he used to make decent money in the mid-1970s, hauling shipping containers from the ports to customers in Los Angeles. Fugate, the owner/operator of a tractor truck, says he used to make four or five trips a day--earning about $145 per trip. Diesel fuel prices and insurance prices were low. There were a lot of containers and not as many truckers to haul them.

City Controller Laura Chick announced Monday that she plans to scrutinize the Los Angeles port's decision to throw out the bids from shipping companies that want to use its new "green terminal," starting the process again with less stringent environmental criteria. Chick said she would look at that controversial step as part of a long-planned follow-up audit on leasing practices at the nation's largest port.

Operations at most of the Port of Los Angeles ground to a halt for five hours Monday as hundreds of longshoremen and marine clerks refused to cross picket lines set up by about 100 farmers protesting the importation of foreign farm products. A spokeswoman for the Pacific Maritime Assn., which represents the shipping companies in labor matters, said about two-thirds of the harbor's shipping activity was affected by the protest by farmers from throughout the West.
