Implications of the San Fernando Valley's possible secession from Los Angeles will be assessed in a symposium Thursday at Cal State Northridge.

No matter where he's going, Assemblyman Bob Hertzberg can't wait to get there. Take a recent morning at 8 o'clock at the nearly deserted Capitol. Hertzberg is on the way to the cafeteria for breakfast, yet he bounds through the eerily quiet halls as if he has a plane to catch and not a moment to spare. In a booming voice, he greets a few other early-bird legislators, gives a hearty bearhug to a state worker and breaks into a chorus of "Maria" in honor of a blushing cafeteria cashier.

The announcement by Brain, a Sherman Oaks real estate broker and member of the city's Productivity Commission, was expected because he has been critical of Feuer since he challenged the councilman for the post last year.
