The head of a Pacoima legal center that represents poor people has resigned after admitting he embezzled nearly $400,000 to feed his gambling habit, officials said. James Steven Carroll, 40, stepped down July 14 as executive director of San Fernando Valley Neighborhood Legal Services. Lew Hollman, acting executive director of the center, said Carroll returned $50,000. He said Carroll has not been arrested or charged because the center has not filed a complaint.

Rejecting arguments that the measure had fallen short of its goals, a judge Friday declined to extend a 14-year court settlement that required the Los Angeles Unified School District to spend extra money on teacher training and other programs at some low-performing campuses. The so-called Rodriguez consent decree obligated the district to set aside $11 million a year for the schools because they had large numbers of inexperienced teachers and administrators.

The validity of two California laws meant to reduce welfare costs was debated before the U.S. Supreme Court this week in appeal hearings. One law cuts benefits for new state residents, the other limits benefits for extended families. Under the 1992 law that was debated, a welfare recipient moving from another state would, for one year, receive payments equal to levels set in the previous state of residence. The law has not gone into effect because of court challenges to its constitutionality.

Deciding that complying with state law is not as simple as black and white, Beverly Hills school officials agreed Tuesday night to try to preserve a pioneering diversity program that for 31 years has welcomed minority students to their local high school. Board of education members said they will, if necessary, restructure a voluntary integration program begun in 1969 so it does not violate state laws banning affirmative action.

Beverly Hills educators have changed their minds and will continue to recruit minority students from outside the city after deciding that their pioneering high school diversity program does not violate the law. School officials earlier this year revealed their intention to scrap their 31-year-old "multicultural" enrollment plan after a school district lawyer decided that it violated Proposition 209, the 1996 ballot initiative that forbids affirmative action programs in public education.

Because of the food stamp cheats, Lydia Sanchez and her four children have survived on food donated by local churches while waiting in long lines for food stamps to be issued. Outside the Panorama City welfare office Monday, Sanchez and about 1,500 other earthquake victims--many without food or a place to sleep--were told by county employees using bullhorns to communicate in Spanish, English and Armenian that there was now a waiting period.

Because of the food stamp cheats, Barbara Brown could not replace the baby food she lost during the earthquake, could not pay her rent and had to wait all morning Monday in a half-mile-long line--for the third time in a week. Last week, thousands of people who suffered losses in the quake were granted emergency food vouchers the day they applied.
