Police are investigating allegations that the former treasurer of the Bonita Unified School District teachers union embezzled just under $10,000 from the union, officials said. Ed Morgan was treasurer from 1995 through 1996, police said. During that time, union officials allege, Morgan embezzled money and misused a union-issued debit card, La Verne Police Chief Ron Ingels said. Investigators said the union conducted its own probe into the alleged embezzlement before contacting police this week.

On a warm and clear night, at a suburban high school in the San Gabriel Valley, a legend named Glenn Davis was resurrected for a couple of hours Friday. He has been dead for 2 1/2 years, but those who remember where he came from, Bonita High in La Verne, still remember to remember. What they did, in essence, was to complete a field of dreams in the name of a football player who was once the dream of their field. He was 80 when he died on March 9, 2005, so his contemporaries are dwindling.

This time around, there was little call for a wrecking ball, and barely a bulldozer was needed. No bridges had collapsed, no city blocks were ablaze, no World Series was postponed. The Jaws of Life were held in reserve, awaiting the next freeway smashup. Call it the handyman's earthquake, more a fix-it job than a catastrophe. The Moderate One was made to order for a putty knife in the hands of a glazier, and a good excuse for do-it-yourselfers to stay home from work.

Communities at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains counted 30 injuries and nearly $14 million in earthquake damage to structures, but residents who spent Thursday sweeping up broken glass and replacing toppled books acknowledged that it could have been worse.

A strong earthquake rumbled beneath Southern California on Wednesday, rattling residents throughout the region but inflicting most of its damage in foothill cities on the Los Angeles and San Bernardino county line. Only a handful of injuries were reported. The 5.5-magnitude quake began shaking at 3:43 p.m. and lasted for 30 seconds. It was centered where two major faults meet in the San Gabriel Mountains about three miles northwest of Upland--about 40 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

They called it the Tour de Freeway. More than 14,000 people gathered on a stretch of the Foothill Freeway extension in Claremont to take advantage of an opportunity to ride and walk on it before it opens to traffic.

Know thy neighbor. La Verne police have uncovered a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory in an aircraft hangar at Brackett Field--a few rows of doors from the helicopter base of an anti-drug law enforcement task force. L.A. Impact is a multi-agency operation aimed at rooting out major narcotics traffickers in Los Angeles County. But it appears that its officers could have strolled a football field's length, rather than flown, to the nearest drug lab.
