After more than a year at the bargaining table, the Fairfield-Suisun United Teachers Assn. and the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District have approved a three-year contract. On Monday, union members overwhelmingly approved a contract that will grant them a 2% raise and a $200 increase to their health benefits over the next two years, said Liz Priest, district president. The agreement, which runs through 2005, will increase contributions to health plans from about $400 to $600.

Authorities say the man who allegedly carjacked and crashed four cars and sexually assaulted two victims may have been involved in a home invasion robbery. Derrick A. Hill, 22, pleaded not guilty Monday to 22 felony charges, including kidnapping, robbery, carjacking and sexual assaults in connection with a Sept. 19 string of crimes. Now, authorities say Hill may be one of three men who broke into a Santa Clara apartment in April.

This town of 85,000 souls hugs Interstate 80 halfway between San Francisco and Sacramento and is a blur to thousands of motorists who swoosh by every day to destinations of more renown. But those who look beyond freeway exit signs and roadside fast-food joints will see something that caught the eye of playwright Dale Wasserman: the forgotten American theater audience. He chose this community of small-town pleasures for the premiere of "Western Star," his new musical.

In a darkened meeting room at a Jacksonville, Fla., airport hotel, nine men huddle around a video projector, intently studying the screen. The image of an Oakland Raiders linebacker is the center of attention. He has just made a tackle, but it's what he does next that's being scrutinized. Acceptable reaction by an excited player? Or taunting? During a game six days earlier, this NFL officiating crew considered the reaction acceptable. But now a supervisor was telling them they got it wrong.
