As students from neighboring secondary schools walked out of class recently to protest immigration legislation, one Inglewood elementary school imposed a lockdown so severe that some students were barred from using the restroom. Instead, they used buckets placed in classroom corners or behind teachers' desks. Appalled by the school's action, Worthington Elementary School parents have complained to the school board and plan to attend another board meeting next week.

As the midday call to prayer was sung out, members of an Inglewood mosque said Wednesday that they were shocked to hear that three of their fellow worshipers were under investigation for a possible plot to shoot up National Guard recruitment centers and synagogues. Members of the mostly South Asian mosque described the trio -- two African American Muslims and a Pakistani national -- as "friendly, devout" adherents and said that they had been unaware of any dangers the men might have posed.

The Airport Commission decided Tuesday to hold off on providing $7 million to Inglewood to soundproof homes under the flight path of Los Angeles International Airport. The commissioners said they had reservations about giving money to communities that are suing over a plan to modernize LAX.
