The Manhattan Beach Police Department has been authorized to hire two new officers this year using a $150,000 federal grant. The money is expected under President Clinton's Cops Fast program, which has allowed 47 Southern California cities to add 59 officers. Cities eligible for the grants had fewer than 50,000 residents. Grants cover up to 75% of the salary and benefits of an officer over three years. The rest must be funded by state or local governments.

Residents of Joel Circle, refusing to take no for an answer, persuaded the City Council and the Police Department to let them hold a New Year's Eve party on their block. Their request was initially denied by the Police Department. Officials were concerned that block parties would put an additional burden on city resources on New Year's Eve. But during the Dec. 13 City Council meeting, neighborhood representative Susie Linde addressed the council to make the case for allowing the party.

The U.S. Customs Service passed out $1.4 million in confiscated funds from a Thailand-connected drug ring to eight law enforcement agencies in San Jose. "This is an example of the other side of the process," said a delighted John E. Hensley, assistant Pacific regional commissioner for the agency. The money was found in bags at a Del Rey Oaks storage locker in November, 1987, and was packed in neat stacks of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. The money was packaged by drug dealers with Southeast Asia connections, authorities said.

I couldn't help but wonder after reading your article, "A Little Play, a Little Work" (May 29) if the women depicted in the piece could ever learn how to relax. If you can't let go in the Virgin Islands I doubt if you can anywhere. Several years ago, eight of us chartered a 50-foot sailboat and sailed the British Virgin Islands, spending several days in St. Thomas. I never wanted a fax machine or portable phone. I could think of nothing so important that I would need to be bothered.
