A jury last week awarded $5.3 million to an Encino teacher who was severely injured in a traffic accident when a pickup truck's brakes failed, and the teacher's attorney contends that there are dangerous design flaws in thousands of the trucks still on the road. Beverly Hills attorney A. Tod Hindin urged a recall of an estimated 200,000 1977 General Motors heavy- and medium-duty trucks with single hydraulic brake systems, calling them "time bombs waiting to go off."

As a woman with no family history of breast cancer yet diagnosed with the disease at age 45, I take personal issue with your article on survival rate studies ("Mammography Questioned for Those Under 50," Jan. 11). I am a volunteer with the American Cancer Society's Reach to Recovery, a peer visitation program where breast cancer survivors like myself visit women currently going through a diagnosis. Many we visit are under 50 or over 70, whose breast cancer was discovered through a mammogram.

A new Department of Water and Power billing system that has been riddled with problems cost ratepayers more than twice the $59 million cited by the utility's spokesman in recent days. The total cost of staff time, contractors and software for the troubled system, which has brought an avalanche of public complaints, is $162 million, DWP spokesman Joe Ramallo said Friday. About $63 million of that was labor costs for DWP employees who were diverted from regular duties to help roll out the program, Ramallo said.

Two members of the Los Angeles City Council called Friday for a halt to shutoff notices by the Department of Water and Power until problems with the utility's troubled billing system are fixed. Council members Mitchell Englander and Nury Martinez, both of whom represent the San Fernando Valley, asked their colleagues to impose the moratorium while the DWP works to bring an end to inaccurate bills and other woes associated with the rollout of new customer software at the DWP. At least one customer complained of getting a bill 12 times her normal rate -- so much that it overdrew her bank account.
