The adoption of new insurance rates that would vary vastly across the state and be especially costly to most San Fernando Valley homeowners met a wave of angry reaction Friday from the halls of the Capitol to the streets of Northridge. Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan's office called the rates "unfair" in an angry letter to Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush, and urged changes in the rate structure.

When San Fernando Valley residents raised a stink last year about sewer rates, lawmakers agreed to revamp the rate structure in their favor, approving a new formula for calculating bills that was widely expected to benefit the Valley. But now, with the new rate structure barely in place, Valley residents are again complaining that their bills are too costly, and they've successfully lobbied council members to consider the issue anew.

Encouraged by a warm welcome from nearby Lake View Terrace homeowners, the San Fernando Valley Fair board voted Friday to move a scaled-down version of the annual fair to Hansen Dam. The location is less than ideal, board members said, because to win consent from nearby homeowners and the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, they agreed to ban carnival rides, concerts and sale of alcoholic drinks. Those were the major money-makers at past fairs. The fair, scheduled for July 14 to 16, will be restricted to such traditional country fair offerings as livestock exhibits, harvest celebrations, banjo contests, lumberjack competitions and craft booths.

Encouraged by a warm welcome from Lake View Terrace homeowners, the San Fernando Valley Fair board voted Friday to move a much scaled-down version of the annual fair to Hansen Dam.

Accusing insurance companies and mortgage lenders of tying up millions of dollars in damage claims owed to quake-battered homeowners, a San Fernando Valley-based consumer group is preparing to take the companies to court. The issue--the same one that embarrassed Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi this spring when he first sided with angry homeowners but then reversed himself--is whether mortgage lenders can legally control how insurance payments are spent.

San Fernando Valley secession activists nearly went into a tizzy last week when county officials reported that studying the proposed fragmentation of Los Angeles could cost $8 million, and possibly more. What ticked off Valley VOTE, the group behind the secession petition movement, was that the updated estimate--more than four times as pricey as the previous one--was based in part on the premise that all city breakaway plans should be included in the analysis.
