The head of the Community Redevelopment Agency is leaving his position, clearing the way for the mayor and the new board overseeing the agency to select a new management team. Jerry Scharlin, who was appointed by former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, took over the troubled city agency in 1999 when it faced serious financial and political problems. Scharlin was seen as "the turnaround guy," said CRA board Chairman David Farrar.

The Community Redevelopment Agency board tapped private management consultant Jerry Scharlin on Wednesday to serve as interim administrator and help the board reorganize the financially troubled agency. City Council members voiced concern that Scharlin lacks experience in redevelopment, but CRA board members said that is not as important in an interim administrator as skill in helping the board revamp the agency's management structure and budget.

Despite reservations, the Los Angeles City Council on Friday confirmed the appointment of Jerry Scharlin as administrator of the Community Redevelopment Agency.

Most board members of the Community Redevelopment Agency said Tuesday that they approve of the way Jerry Scharlin has run the agency--one day before they are set to decide whether to promote him to permanently head the city's blight-fighting operation. But Scharlin, who ran a controversial investigation of his agency, may not have such an easy time before the Los Angeles City Council, which has the power to endorse or undo what the CRA board decides today.

Mayor Richard Riordan's proposed reappointment of the Community Redevelopment Agency's acting director has stirred opposition among labor activists and City Council members, who complain that Jerry Scharlin is being allowed to continue leading the troubled agency without a search to see whether he is the best person for the job. The appointment of Scharlin, who was brought to the CRA on a six-month contract last year to attempt to turn it around, will come before the full council today.

Capistrano Valley got off most of the shots, but Brea Olinda made the one that counted as the Wildcats won a boys' soccer game, 1-0, Wednesday at Capistrano Valley. Brea Olinda was outshot, 17-5, and Capistrano Valley controlled the ball for most of the game. But Daniel Benigno, a Brea Olinda midfielder, got open on a breakaway midway through the first half and scored the game's only goal.
