Can you dig it? Big bad John Shaft is a clotheshorse. He's sweet on slick leather Armani. The man's down with Kenzo lace-up boots. And the detective, in the new film "Shaft," knows how to accessorize: hip to Helmut Lang sunglasses, Missoni skullcaps and Quinico wool scarves. Yep, that Shaft is a bad mother, so shut yo mouth, as the theme song by Isaac Hayes goes, because Shaft is still the man. For sure, the Mac Daddy of Duds cuts a classy screen figure in designer urban threads.

Orange County transportation planners on Monday are likely to approve an urban rail link to the Los Angeles Metro Rail system through Fullerton instead of a more southerly route through Stanton and Cypress, officials said.

Residents are invited to help consider transportation alternatives at a workshop Monday at City Hall. Traffic improvements, such as widening streets and intersections, will be written into the city's General Plan--its blueprint for the future. Associate Planner Ken Bane, who is leading the workshop, said Rolling Hills Drive is now slated for widening to four lanes. He pointed out, however, that the widening may be inappropriate for the residential neighborhood through which the road passes.

If the city clerk validates the signatures, the measure will then go before the City Council, said Mary Homme, leader of the Save Our Bastanchury group. The council would then have three options: call a special election, adopt the measure or study the initiative further, she said.
