Toronto Sun Won't Take On Herald: Toronto Sun Publishing Corp. has decided against joining forces with the Hearst Corp. to convert the Los Angeles Herald Examiner into a tabloid, said John McCabe, general manager and chief operating officer of the Herald Examiner. The Toronto Sun, which publishes several successful tabloids in Toronto and other Canadian cities, said it was too involved in other ventures to take on the money-losing Herald. McCabe said he didn't know whether Hearst was looking for another partner.

Bud Furillo, who died Monday night, did things a little differently when he was sports editor of the Los Angeles Herald Examiner from 1964 to 1974. When newspaper columnists take time off, there often is a short note to readers in that same space saying the columnist is on vacation. Not Furillo. On the few occasions he took a vacation, he had this note where his column -- "The Steam Room" -- usually ran: "Bud Furillo's Typewriter Is Broken. His Column Will Resume When It Is Fixed."

With the news that Chasen's would close April 1, the phone started ringing off the hook with people desperate for reservations. Want a table this weekend? Good luck. On Valentine's Day? Forget it. The very last night? Not a prayer. If only the restaurant had been that busy before the announcement of its imminent demise. Los Angeles' prized institutions and buildings are not impervious to financial or structural ruin.

"It really didn't die, did it?" said Max McCrohon, the last editor of the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, as he looked around at the 150-plus old Herald hands who were gathered to remember the newspaper that had been so much a part of their lives, and the life of Los Angeles. It was the same sort of comment you heard five years ago last week, on the night the Herald closed down, about how the Herald really wasn't dead, that its spirit would live on. The death of the Herald cost L.A.

The Los Angeles Herald Examiner failed in its court attempt to block a Santa Monica city ordinance banning advertising placards on news racks and requiring that racks be wood grain. Newspaper officials stated in court documents that "no form of advertising is nearly as important to the Herald as rack cards." Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John L. Cole said he found the argument "absolutely, totally unconvincing."

When I worked as a copy boy (sorry--that was the term back then) at the old Valley News and Green Sheet in the early '70s, my first duty early each morning was to "rip the wires." This meant picking up the pile of wire copy that had accumulated during the night from United Press International and City News Service, "ripping" it into individual stories, then organizing it for the wire editor. The wire editor was a diminutive, arthritic old man with a bald head and hangdog jowls.

The Hearst Corp. has approached the Community Redevelopment Agency about the possibility of demolishing the historic Herald Examiner building, perhaps to create a parking lot, a CRA planner said this week. Richard Macias, the CRA's principal environmental planner, said Wednesday that a Hearst attorney told him about a month ago that demolition of the colorful structure at Broadway and 11th Street is one option under consideration, although the corporation has no definite plans.
