Then the three introduced a surprise "transition team," including a lawyer and a consultant with links to Irwindale, one of the most development-minded cities in the county. There were some thunderstruck stares in the audience.

Vice Mayor James Castenada opposed the 6% tax, saying the council should instead make cuts in areas not critical to public safety.

Faced with higher bids than expected for the first phase of beautifying the Mission District, the City Council last week repackaged the project to include the planned park-and-ride lot on Mission Drive and sought a new round of bids. City staff said that one contractor might be more efficient than two to coordinate the expanded project. In addition to the park-and-ride lot, the planned improvements include decorative paving, trees and street lights, mostly along Mission Drive.

If Todd Stoke had his way, he would have been coaching his Rio Mesa High wrestlers at the Southern Section Division I dual meet championships Wednesday instead of watching from the stands. But 10 Spartan wrestlers--more than any area school in Division I--qualified for the Southern Section individual championships that begin today. The championship round is Saturday. Division I wrestlers, including those from the Channel and Marmonte leagues, will meet at El Monte High.

Not long ago, Armando and Fernando Avila had never met a bag of potato chips they didn't devour. And often with a few candy bars to follow, chased by a carton of ice cream. Anyway you scoop it, the Avilas, identical-twin wrestlers for Chatsworth High, loved junk food--even though too many Pay Days might lead to pay back on the mat. All of which they had to learn the hard way. But the Battle of the Bulge was finally won.
