A faculty committee on Tuesday unanimously endorsed establishment of a law school at UC Irvine as the university contemplates nearly doubling in size over the next 15 years. Such a school of about 400 to 600 students would be an advantage in attorney-rich Orange County, one of the largest locales in the United States without a law school accredited by the American Bar Assn., according to a task force of professors and private lawyers who studied the issue.

Progress? Maybe. Hopefully. Within six hours of our election results being declared in the wee hours of March 6, the Navy released a statement promising to honor Measure W's new non-aviation zoning requirements but declaring its new intent to begin a sale of the base.

After a time, her eyes stared emptily into space, and Christopher Marks called police to say that his mother was gone.

Orange County motorists will have their first--and perhaps last--chance Monday to testify about an ambitious 20-year plan to improve traffic and manage growth that would be paid for partly by a half-cent sales tax. The final hearing on the plan and tax--the first proposed since voters soundly rejected a 1-cent sales tax increase for transportation 5 years ago--will be at the County Hall of Administration in Santa Ana. The plan is designed to...
