A second Los Angeles city building inspector has agreed to plead guilty to charges that he solicited and accepted thousands of dollars in bribes for signing off on permits for properties he had never inspected. Hugo Joel Gonzalez, 49, of Eagle Rock signed a plea agreement Friday in which he admitted taking $9,000 in bribes last year from an FBI informant who worked for a major residential developer and an undercover agent posing as a contractor. In exchange for the money, Gonzalez signed off on permits for multiple properties in South Los Angeles that he had not inspected, according to court documents.

7:30 TONIGHT WESTERN HIGH Both teams feature strong passing games supplemented by solid rushing attacks. Saddleback quarterback Ramon Saavedra has had a slightly better year statistically than his counterpart, Justin Rice, but the Centurions have strung together more victories. If the results against their common opponent, Corona del Mar, are any indication, then Cypress should be a strong favorite. The Centurions hammered the Sea Kings, 35-10; the Roadrunners lost to Corona del Mar, 38-35.
