Pauline Davis, the former "Lady of the Lakes" who as an assemblywoman for 24 years guided some of California's most significant water development proposals through the Legislature, is dead at 78. Her family said Davis died Thursday at her Sacramento home. She had been under treatment for asbestos-caused lung cancer the last three months. Her Assembly career was the longest of any woman in either house of the California Legislature.

During a recent Senate hearing on legislation designed to protect the jobs of U.S. textile workers from foreign competition, Sen. Slade Gorton (R-Wash.) turned up to express his fervent opposition. The bill, as Gorton pointed out, would affect not only sweaters and trousers but also stuffed animals and toys, which are imported into this country in vast numbers through the Port of Seattle.

Defensive back Ted Watts has a lot of "things" going on right now. For instance, he said the other day he's no longer into the Raider thing, but is definitely into the Charger thing. And he's also into the team-concept thing and into the winning thing and into the making-money thing. Truth is, the best thing about Ted Watts, 29, is all the things he has been through. He's trying out for the Chargers, but he began his career for Raider owner Al Davis in 1981.
