The Monterey Park City Council voted unanimously against adopting an ordinance that would have required some "modern Latin lettering" on storefront signs. After the second reading of the ordinance Wednesday night and a four-hour discussion with more than 40 speakers, including representatives from the ACLU and other civil rights groups, the council voted to take no action on the ordinance, effectively killing the proposal unless it is reintroduced. Councilman Hans Liang said it made more sense for the city to avoid regulating language on signs.

Politicians and businessmen mingled amid mint-green tablecloths as cups of locally sourced red butter lettuce salad circulated.

MONTEREY BAY, Calif. - Along Highway 1 between Marina and Seaside, it's all roller-coastering sand dunes and chaparral. There the road cuts across Ft. Ord, where soldiers trained for almost every war the U.S. Army waged in the 20th century, as well as deployments to Panama and the 1992 L.A. riots. Then Ft. Ord closed and it was over. In 1994, 36,000 soldiers and their families were relocated, emptying hospitals, barracks, chapels, stockades and 28,000 prime Central Coast acres.

A small Monterey County school district has come up with what it considers a novel approach to paying for classroom technology: voter-approved, short-term bonds. Taxpayers in the Pacific Grove Unified School District will be asked in November to pay for the technology - such as tablets for students and teachers - with a $28-million bond strictly designed for such uses. The money would be spent in intervals over time, such as every three to five years. The idea is to create a funding stream to replace worn or obsolete technology as needed.
