The family of a Transportation Security Administration officer slain in a shooting at LAX has filed a claim against the city, alleging the wrongful death of Gerardo Hernandez and seeking damages in excess of $25 million. The claim, filed April 16, can be a precursor to a civil lawsuit. The family alleges in the claim that city agencies failed to protect Los Angeles International Airport. The claim says city employees "failed in the performance of their duties which created a dangerous lapse in security" that led to Hernandez's death and delayed medical care to the injured.

Luis Hernandez, whose Major League Soccer debut Saturday night attracted a season-high crowd of 40,303 to the Rose Bowl, suffered nothing more serious than a sprained left shoulder during the Galaxy's 2-1 victory over Washington D.C. United and will rejoin the team Friday. The 31-year-old striker will miss Wednesday's game against the New England Revolution at Foxboro (Mass.) Stadium but will return in time for Saturday's home game against San Jose.

The Galaxy is one point away from Major League Soccer's championship game. A tie against the Fire in Chicago on Wednesday night is all it will take to get to the Oct. 21 title match at Columbus, Ohio. And if Luis Hernandez is late getting there, Coach Sigi Schmid won't mind one bit. The Mexican striker did not start Game 2 of the MLS semifinal series at Cal State Fullerton on Saturday night because he claimed to have been tied up in traffic coming from his home in Pasadena.

Why does U.S. Soccer continue to make the U.S. team face an unfriendly crowd in Los Angeles by playing against Mexico? It's shameful that the team must face an anti-American crowd in L.A. Why can't U.S. Soccer bring some neutral opponent to L.A. so "American" fans can watch our team play without being in some humiliating environment where we wonder if we are even in America any more. JOHN WORTHING Encinitas I have three comments about the Galaxy. Why did we trade for Luis Hernandez?

Not having been selected to play for Mexico against the U.S. on Sunday, Luis Hernandez can instead concentrate on playing for the Galaxy against the Burn in Dallas today. That's welcome news for Galaxy Coach Sigi Schmid, who believes Hernandez is blending better with the MLS team this season than last. "I've felt very good about Luis being with the Galaxy this year," he said. "He's come in with a very good attitude. Our team knows what to expect, as well.

Abe Gomez was working on short notice Thursday and he made even shorter work of Luis Hernandez in the main boxing event in front of about 1,000 at the Irvine Marriott. Gomez was credited with a second-round knockout after the fight was stopped because of a gash over the left eye of Hernandez. The junior lightweight fight was scheduled for 10 rounds. Gomez, of Los Angeles, had been training for a March 15 bout with Carlos Marquez.

Luis Hernandez has the chance today to make amends for a moment of madness a year ago. It occurred in the semifinals of the 2000 U.S. Open Cup, when the Galaxy's Mexican striker got tangled up with the Chicago Fire's Polish playmaker, Peter Nowak. In the scuffle, Hernandez appeared to purposely step on the face of the fallen midfielder and was tossed out of the game, which the Fire won, 2-1, in overtime, en route to its second Open Cup title.

Luis Hernandez, the Mexican striker with the flowing blond hair and the penchant for scoring important goals, today will become Major League Soccer's most significant signing of the season. The deal to bring the 31-year-old World Cup player to the Galaxy was to have been completed Thursday, but a last-minute hitch in Mexico City delayed the formal announcement until today.

Luis Hernandez finally has made it to Los Angeles. He wasn't here last week for the CONCACAF Champions Cup, which the Galaxy managed to win without him, but he is here for tonight's international soccer "friendly" between Mexico and Colombia at the Coliseum. Before that, though, he wanted to explain why he had missed the most important tournament in the Galaxy's five-year history. It was the coach's fault, he said.

The rumors and half-truths swirl around Luis Hernandez, buffeting him the same way turbulence rocks an aircraft. And with about as much effect. Hernandez, one of soccer's most prolific goal scorers, flew back to Los Angeles from Mexico City on Wednesday night and reacquainted himself with his fellow Galaxy players Thursday at the Rose Bowl.

Luis Hernandez is out of the country and, according to Major League Soccer, the jury still is out on him too. The striker is playing for Club America through the end of the Mexican League season and is unavailable to the so-far-winless Galaxy until mid- to-late May at the earliest. Hernandez played 16 games and scored four goals for the Galaxy last season and the feeling among many fans continues to be that the six-year-old league gave up too much to get too little.

If there is any way that Major League Soccer can get out of its contract with Luis Hernandez, the league should take it and run. The Mexican striker's failure to show up for the CONCACAF Champions Cup is inexcusable. Even if he is injured, which certainly is in doubt, there is no reason he could not have flown to Los Angeles to offer support to his Galaxy teammates from the bench.

It didn't take long for the question to be posed--would newly signed Luis Hernandez start for the Galaxy in its match tonight against Washington D.C. United? "I feel good and my timing is good, even though I haven't trained in a week," Hernandez said. "I think I could do it but it's a decision for the head coach to make." It didn't take long for Galaxy Coach Sigi Schmid to answer. "OK," a convinced Schmid said. You didn't think Hernandez came all this way to sit, did you?

His music of choice these days is AC/DC, as evidenced by his ritualistic blasting of the hard-rock group's songs on the boom box in the Galaxy locker room. He has developed an affinity for the wonders of the Internet in general and America Online in particular.
