Apparently, it's not easy writing a trash novel about Hollywood. Because it takes not one but two writers to do it these days. Now, this may come as a shock to Jackie Collins, the undisputed schlock jock of the sun-and-sex-on-Sunset genre, who has been turning out mega-bestsellers by herself for two decades. But, this summer, a new trend has sprung up: Hollywood trash teams. The idea seems to be that two brains are better than one when it comes to thinking up story lines.

I was shocked to see a new cartoon strip in your Sunday comics section, "Spy vs. Spy" (April 14). The timing could not have been worse for trying to make the use of explosives funny. I am appalled at the insensitivity, in light of current events, in the Middle East in particular. Linda Lane McCall El Segundo

The City Council has approved urban runoff diversion projects for two beach access paths. The council last week approved the installment of collection pipes and drains in the paths, which also serve as railroad underpasses, at Plaza la Playa and near Linda Lane Park. The pipes will take water flow from storm drains to city sewer lines, where the runoff can be treated at the city's sewage treatment facility.

Railroad service will be interrupted at Mariposa Point over the weekend as crews pull up tracks to install a pedestrian tunnel to the beach, city officials said. Trains will be blocked from 10 p.m. today to about 4 a.m. Monday, said City Engineer Bill Cameron. There will be additional railroad maintenance at spots in north San Diego County and south Orange County, Cameron said, and train passengers will be provided bus service around the work sites. The tunnel construction is part of the city's $14-million, 2.3-mile beach trail project.

Police detectives were searching Friday for a 16-year-old Santa Ana boy who fled after mistakenly shooting his younger brother while aiming a handgun at his father during an argument. The boy, whose name was withheld because of his age, was believed to be armed with either a .38-caliber handgun or a .30-caliber automatic handgun, police spokeswoman Maureen Haacker said. The boy and his 58-year-old father, Matias Gonzalez, began arguing at about 7:30 p.m.
