The Metropolitan Transportation Authority refinanced nearly $220 million in bonds Tuesday with little apparent fallout from the decision by two rating agencies to downgrade their estimation of the agency's future credit-worthiness. "We had a very successful sale," said Allan Lipsky, MTA deputy chief executive officer. All of the bonds were sold to five syndicates, headed by Goldman, Sachs & Co., which made "aggressive and very strong bids" for them, he said.

This was not your average typographical error. On Monday, an employee in the Los Angeles city treasurer's office typed an order to wire money to a Port of Los Angeles employee who works in Mexico. The employee was owed $9,008.55. But $9,008,550 was wired from a city account to the employee's account at a U.S. bank in Chula Vista. A port official initially blamed the error on the office of City Controller Laura Chick.

The city of Los Angeles has overdrawn its accounts twice, totaling $109 million, in recent years and appears to have lost $7.9 million in potential interest earnings by keeping too much cash out of long-term investments, according to an audit by the city controller Friday that blamed management problems in the city treasurer's office.
U.S. Bank's arrival in a Boyle Heights strip mall this month marked a milestone for this under-banked city pocket, becoming what community leaders say is the first new branch to open in the neighborhood in about three decades. Officials at the bank, which is expanding in California after a recent acquisition, say the region's minority consumers--many of whom rely on costly check-cashing services--represent one of the most promising new markets around.

Early last year Judi Haase made an unsettling discovery: The $5,000 Department of Water and Power bond she meant to hold for a rainy day had been seized through a legal loophole by the city of Los Angeles. Haase had inherited the bond from her father and it had matured in 1997. Still, instead of cashing it, the retired schoolteacher from San Pedro put it in her safe-deposit box.
