It was nothing personal, but when Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan appointed Jill (J.P.) Ellman to the powerful Board of Public Works two years ago, he told her he wanted to eventually put her out of work. Riordan took office in 1993, promising to end the full-time panel to save money and reduce the City Hall bureaucracy. He appointed Ellman to the post only long enough to work herself out of a job.

Jill Ellman was only 8, but she remembers military officials heading up the driveway and knocking on her family's door with the news that her father's Air Force bomber had crashed off the coast of Newfoundland. The news had barely sunk in when the telephone rang with an update: Her father was safe. Her mother broke out a bottle of champagne. "Everyone was celebrating," Ellman recalled. But a few hours later the phone rang again, and the celebrating stopped. Only one crew member had been pulled from the ocean, and it wasn't her dad. Searchers discovered an empty life raft, but never found her father.
