Five months after a big sewage spill followed a Y2K readiness test in Van Nuys, a follow-up test was completed this week without any problems, officials said Friday. On June 16, nearly 3 million gallons of raw sewage spilled into Woodley Avenue Park from the Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant during a test. The test involved switching the plant over to an emergency generator, which could be required if year 2000 computer problems cause a power outage in the city.

Re "Drunk on ethanol," editorial, Aug. 20 The editorial is one of the best statements I've seen on the idiocy of our current energy policy (or, really, lack thereof). Just as Americans seek a miracle diet, they also want to keep their SUVs, RVs and Hummers running smoothly without having to think about global warming, peak oil, national security, the Middle East, oil imports or nasty old tar sands.
October 6, 1985 | BY SAM HALL KAPLAN, Sam Hall Kaplan is The Times' urban affairs critic.
As he drove through the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area during the past few years, Bill Smith had watched the futuristic sewage treatment plant slowly taking shape off Woodley Avenue. To the retired aeronautical engineer from Granada Hills, the forms and the hint of their function were fascinating, and he looked forward to touring the facility when it was completed and operating.

In February, amid two weeks of protests against racial incidents at Penn State University, a young white man grabbed a black student by the arm and punched her in the eye. "Why don't you protest this," he told her. During the last two years, 160 U.S. colleges have reported incidents aimed at black, Latino, Asian and homosexual students and faculty members, said Howard J. Uhrlich of the National Institute Against Prejudice and Violence. "Between 20% and 25% of all minority students on campus have been victimized at least once during an academic year," Uhrlich said, citing incidents of verbal harassment, cross-burnings, hate literature, beatings, brawls, anti-homosexual graffiti, swastikas and racially motivated slurs.
Most Los Angeles residents are aware that tar has been seeping up through the earth at the La Brea Tar Pits since prehistoric times, creating a rich fossil record that is now a major tourist attraction. What they don't realize is that the thick, gooey muck is also a perennial source of irritation for many neighbors like Michael Daniels.

In the predawn darkness, officer Jerry Millar trailed the suspicious car. Its headlights were off and it was going the wrong way on a one-way street, authorities say. Then the report came in to the police station: burglary on Amity Street. Millar caught his quarry on North Pleasant Street and got out of his cruiser. He found a portable stereo in the car, according to the police report. The three occupants were arrested. It seemed routine except for one thing.

Bob Dynes, intent on his BlackBerry, squeezed into his airplane seat and raced to catch up on e-mail before his Friday night flight to San Diego took off. He brushed aside a flight attendant's warning to switch the device off -- "Oh, right, OK" -- then resumed his furious tapping as she disappeared down the aisle. But she sneaked back up on the man just named to head the nation's most prestigious public university system and caught him, hunched over, doing the "BlackBerry prayer," as he puts it.
