Freeway chase? News at 11. Local politics? Not nearly as interesting to most TV stations here. And what coverage there is took a hit this week when KNBC-TV Channel 4's notable political reporter, Linda Douglass, disclosed that she will soon leave the station and move to Washington.

Most of all, Willow Wadman wanted to go on a roller coaster ride. But the 11-year-old had other wishes. She wanted to ride horseback on the beach, to be on "Wheel of Fortune," to take a train ride, and to go to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and take the Universal Studios Tour.
