Heated resident opposition to a proposed tree ordinance prompted the Sierra Madre City Council to send the idea back to the drawing boards. More than 100 people turned out for Tuesday's hearing on the ordinance, most of them opposed. The proposal would have regulated tree trimming and removal of all of the city's large trees, including those on private property. But residents said the ordinance would create too much paper work and deprive homeowners of personal property rights.

One of the great ironies of skipping school is that it can get you kicked out of school. Traditionally, truants are punished with suspension or expulsion. "Then they're back out on the streets, which is where we don't want them," said Pasadena City Prosecutor Tracy Webb. But school and city officials are looking for alternatives that will discourage truancy while keeping students in school.

There were recriminations and regrets in the aftermath of Tuesday's Pasadena City Council election in which Bill Crowfoot, a Spanish-speaking Anglo, defeated Joe Morales, a Latino, to represent predominantly Latino District 5. Crowfoot's critics slammed him for running what they said was a negative campaign that appealed to the fears of Anglo voters. Tim Brick, Morales' campaign manager, charged that Crowfoot's campaign had "spread doubts" among Latino voters rather than "empowering" them.

A federal lawsuit's allegations that the Pasadena school district's lottery system for entry to its three best schools is based on race has no foundation, district officials said Friday. Supt. Vera Vignes and school board President Lisa Fowler said the Pasadena Unified School District will give immediate entry to siblings of those already at the schools, but beyond that, the selection will be entirely random.

An internal probe should be conducted to find the identity of the workers who used district computers to access pornographic Internet sites, school board President Lisa Fowler said. Such an investigation would remove any potential stigma from employees who use the computer system and allay the fears of parents, Fowler said. "I don't want someone like that near our students," she said.
