Charges were filed Monday against a San Pedro company in connection with a gasoline spill in Los Angeles Harbor last year. The city attorney's office charged Western Fuel Oil Co. with illegally discharging a petroleum product into state waters. The charge, arising from the state Fish and Game Code, carries a maximum penalty of a $2,000 fine.

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will receive more than $27 million in federal grants to beef up security at the nation's busiest harbor complex, federal officials announced Thursday. The grants, which will be spent on new patrol boats, improved surveillance equipment and new command centers, go at least part way toward addressing what some local officials have said is a shortage of funding for measures to guard against terrorism.

The Great White Steamer Catalina disappeared from its mooring in Los Angeles Harbor last weekend and has turned up at anchor off Ensenada, but the ship's owners said Wednesday they have "no idea at all" what it is doing there. "Nobody told us it was being moved," said Ruth Singer, who has been co-owner of the Catalina since her husband, Hymie, bought it for her as a Valentine's Day present in 1977.
