The producer of a movie shooting in the Los Angeles area about a secretive Los Angeles Police Department unit believes his phone has been tapped. Some crew members feel their work is under surveillance. The film company received an unsolicited letter from an LAPD detective criticizing plot points in what supposedly had been a closely-held script. For most of the six weeks the movie has been shooting, it's had a fictitious name.

When the men of the Los Angeles Police Department's most feared unit face off with an armed suspect, there are only two possible outcomes. "Either they give up or there's going to be a shooting. That's just the way it is," said Det. Brian Davis, a senior member of the unit. "What are you going to do? Wait for them to shoot you? You do that, and you'll be pushing up daisies."

No civil rights charges will be filed against nine members of an elite Los Angeles police unit for fatally shooting three robbers and wounding a fourth as they fled a holdup, federal authorities announced Monday. The U. S. attorney's office said it had concluded that there was insufficient evidence to prove the police had violated civil rights laws when they fired on the four men in 1990.

What's a group like Special EFX doing at Catalina Bar & Grill? For one thing, not drawing much of a crowd Tuesday for its opening night. For another, sounding strikingly out of context in the Southland's primary venue for mainstream jazz. This is a group that has been the single most played band in the history of the new adult contemporary radio format, but its credentials as a jazz act range from slim to nil.

Tina Pauley of Tustin Ranch was thrilled to learn she won the lottery Monday. Her big payoff? Not one cent, but something priceless for some triathletes: an entry into the Ironman Triathlon World Championship next October in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. It's safe to say that everyone knows how grueling the Ironman Triathlon is. The distances--2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run--speak for themselves. But getting into the Hawaii Ironman is a challenge in itself.

Jeff Reardon has played for six teams in 14 years--some good, some bad. But he has never been part of anything like the current Cincinnati Reds. Reardon gave up Jody Reed's sacrifice fly and Brett Butler's RBI double in the 11th inning as the Reds wasted a ninth-inning rally and lost to the Dodgers, 5-3, Tuesday night for their 11th loss in a row. Cincinnati, playing its worst baseball in a quarter of a century, lost for the 16th time in 19 games.
