Oddly, Kaiser Steel Resources Inc. had no trouble getting a $5-million "key man" life insurance policy on Daniel N. Larson when he took over as president in 1988. Larson dutifully explained on the application why he'd been in Tibet, and when the insurer sent an investigator to make sure everything was kosher, Larson entertained him in an office covered with photos of mountains--and mountaineering. Despite all this, the investigator never asked the most important question of all.

The county Sanitation Districts are studying 10 proposals from major waste haulers, railroads and entrepreneurs offering to take trash from Los Angeles County to the desert by train to be recycled, buried or burned. One company proposes to load 7,000 tons of trash a day on trains in City of Industry, Irwindale and La Verne and haul the waste 185 miles to an abandoned iron ore pit in Riverside County. Another company would build a waste separation and recycling plant at Puente Hills landfill near Hacienda Heights and ship trash by rail to a plant near Victorville for processing into construction materials.
