The University of California should enroll more out-of-state students, push more students to graduate in three years, create more online classes and look for ways to operate more efficiently, according to a report aimed at helping the 10-campus system weather stormy economic times. The final report from UC's Commission on the Future, released Monday, pulls together ideas that have been discussed for more than a year in response to reductions in state funding for higher education.

The Beverly Hills Unified School District released Wednesday the final report by a law firm hired to probe a summer sports camp for high school athletes that was run by the principal. The review came in response to articles in The Times last year that found that the Beverly Hills Sports Academy, which was held on campus, was operated by Principal Carter Paysinger and two school employees. The Board of Education requested a review of the sports program after parents raised concerns.

The bipartisan debt commission issued its final report Wednesday, warning that without the sacrifices it calls for, a fiscal "reckoning will be sure and the devastation severe. " Based on an initial blueprint offered Nov. 10 by the panel's co-chairmen, former Republican Sen. Alan Simpson and former Clinton administration chief of staff Erskine Bowles, the budget blueprint outlines steps that, when taken together, would slash the federal deficit by $828 billion by 2015. "Even after the economy recovers, federal spending is projected to increase faster than revenues, so the government will have to continue borrowing to spend," the report states.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has decided to delay action on the interim recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection until a final report is issued in April. Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas signaled that he would continue to press to immediately begin a restructuring of the county system to protect children from abuse and neglect, but the four other supervisors said they were not prepared to join the effort until they can fully assess the commission's vision and the accompanying cost.

Don Rogers, the former UCLA and Cleveland Browns' football star who died of a cocaine overdose June 27, had a healthy heart with no signs of long-term drug use, the Sacramento County coroner's office said Monday. Deputy Coroner Donna O'Ray-King said that the final report in the case made no change in the conclusion of investigators that the 23-year-old defensive back was killed by cocaine, adding that investigators still do not know how Rogers ingested the drug.

Columbia investigators on Wednesday delayed by a month the scheduled delivery of their final accident investigation report, saying they still have massive amounts of work to complete.

A county commission created to examine allegations of abuse in Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department jails said it would release its findings Friday, including 63 recommendations on how to fix problems with management, deputy culture and other issues. For months, the commission and its investigators have heard from former and current sheriff's officials and reviewed internal department documents. Earlier this month, the panel's investigators used that evidence to issue a searing critique of Sheriff Lee Baca and his top assistants, accusing them of fostering a culture in which deputies were permitted to beat and humiliate inmates, cover up misconduct and form aggressive deputy cliques in the L.A. County jails.

The final report on the listeriosis epidemic that claimed 48 lives in Los Angeles County in 1985 traces California's worst food poisoning case ever to raw or poorly pasteurized milk used to make cheese at a now-defunct Artesia plant. The report, published today in the New England Journal of Medicine, reaches that conclusion even though investigators never found the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria in the dairy herds that supplied raw milk to Jalisco Mexican Products Inc.

Katrina hit the Gulf Coast as a Category 3 hurricane, not a Category 4 as first thought, and New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain likely were spared the storm's strongest winds, the National Hurricane Center said. New Orleans' storm levees were generally believed to be able to protect the city from the flooding of a fast-moving Category 3 storm. But Katrina was generally a slow-moving storm, said Jim Taylor, a spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers. Katrina made landfall Aug.

Working as part of the fifth National Audit Project of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the Assn. of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland, the study's coauthors sent a questionnaire about “accidental awareness” by patients during general anesthesia to all of the senior anesthetists in Britain.

An outside authority has completed its review of NCAA enforcement procedures and is expected to deliver the results by the end of next week. The review was triggered by a recent discovery that NCAA staff acted improperly while investigating alleged violations at the University of Miami. The staff members paid a private attorney to gather information under the guise of an unrelated bankruptcy case. The longstanding and much-publicized Miami case has been put on hold while Kenneth L. Wainstein, a former homeland security advisor to President George W. Bush, scrutinizes NCAA procedures and personnel.

A melee outside a Santa Monica Community College Board of Trustees meeting last April that resulted in protesters being hit with pepper spray could have been prevented if college administrators had provided additional police resources and moved the gathering to a larger meeting hall, according to an internal police report obtained by The Times. The 60-page review is based on interviews and video examined by campus police Sgt. Jere Romano, who was not involved in the incident. As many as 100 protesters had gathered for the April 3 meeting on campus, angry over a proposed two-tiered fee plan in which high-demand courses would cost more.

WASHINGTON - The Department of Justice inspector general's office is close to issuing its long-awaited findings in the Fast and Furious case -- perhaps as early as next week -- after top Justice officials provided their final comments about the failed gun-tracking operation on the Southwest border. In a letter to Capitol Hill, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said his investigators now must pore over wiretap records, grand jury material and sealed court records to make sure nothing that should not be disclosed is inadvertently included in the final report.

A year after devastating tornadoes swept through Alabama, a preliminary study has found that less than half of those who died received some warning and many of those who took protective action were killed in shelters that could not withstand the strong winds. The study, which has yet to be published, was carried out by researchers at the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Red Cross, CDC spokeswoman Vivi Abrams said by telephone. The American Red Cross shares disaster data with the CDC. “These were catastrophic winds that could destroy pretty much anything in its path,” Cindy Chiu, an epidemic intelligence service officer, said, describing the preliminary findings at a CDC conference this month.
