December 26, 2004 | From Times wire reports
Home sellers' concerns about rising interest rates helped drive the residential real estate market to new heights in California in 2004, with baby boomers dominating the market and accounting for 74% of all home sales, according to the California Assn. of Realtors' "Survey of California Sellers." "Because of its size and current life cycle, the boomer generation is likely to play a significant role in the housing market over the next several years," said association President Jim Hamilton.

This past Sunday I did something that I rarely do--I went to church. Not just any church, but St. Paul's United Methodist Church in North Redondo Beach to hear Rev. Jim Hamilton's last sermon. After 17 years there, Rev. Hamilton is leaving for a year's sabbatical in Costa Rica. After that, who knows? I first met Rev. Hamilton almost four years ago when, as editor of the Redondo Beach News, I became intrigued by the work that both Project: NEEDS and the AIDS Heartline were doing out of his little church in District 5. Over the next few years I wrote several stories about them and Rev. Hamilton and I became good friends, getting together for lunch every few months to catch up on life and complain about the demise of our beloved Boston Celtics.

But at 88, he was in an Alzheimer's fog and didn't quite know why he was sitting at a piano in a Canoga Park recording studio earlier this year, with engineers and backup musicians milling around and a producer coaxing him to play something -- anything. Finally, he did: "Darktown Strutters Ball."

General Automation Inc. said it will join the growing ranks of local companies that are reincorporating in Delaware to take advantage of that state's liberal corporate laws. The move, approved by shareholders at the Anaheim computer maker's annual meeting Monday, is designed to take advantage of Delaware's "modern, flexible corporation law," which allows a company to provide key personnel with broader liability indemnification than is possible in California.

I am writing in response to Aaron Spelling's comments about the Superior Court's prohibition of filming in a residential area of Hermosa Beach ("Spelling Criticizes Ruling on '90210' Filming in Hermosa," Oct. 9). It appears that Spelling thinks the film industry should have an unlimited right to film anywhere it pleases, regardless of the impact on those living nearby. Residents have a legitimate interest in preserving the peace and tranquillity of their neighborhoods. Zoning normally precludes business in residential areas.

Employees who had stuck with cash-starved Braniff airline during two bankruptcy proceedings responded angrily today to its sudden suspension of regular passenger flights, jeopardizing 1,800 jobs. "These people that bought Braniff, they need to be put on trial by Braniff employees and taken out for a public flogging," Leo Bailey, a laid-off customer service agent, said in Kansas City, Mo.
