County planning officials recommended Wednesday that operators of Los Angeles International Airport give more consideration to opponents of a $652-million runway move that business leaders say is essential for handling future growth in travel and cargo. The Airport Land Use Commission, which oversees aviation-related projects in the region, however, rejected a request by runway opponents to issue an order requiring the Los Angeles City Council to reconsider its approval of an entire $4.75-billion package of LAX improvements.

A Los Angeles City Council panel said it would consider recommending that all 911 operators be bilingual. Police Capt. Thomas Elfmont, commanding officer of the Communications Division, said only one out of six operators on duty at any given time speaks Spanish. "I'm very concerned about this issue," said Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg, chairwoman of the Personnel Committee. "One out of six does not seem to me like an adequate ratio." The committee asked the Personnel Department to report in a few weeks on the recruitment of bilingual operators.

The suit filed by the operators of the Navy train is so hideously repellent in its cynicism, so snide in its snickering arrogance, that one detects the scent of political manipulation behind this apparent individual legal action. For whom but those wishing to score a political point with like-minded, ideologically obsessed little sycophants would wish not only to gain financially from the disfigurement of another, but to do so boldly and publicly? The average decent working man does not think that way. Those who would find legitimacy in this suit might countenance a suit by SS men against victims of the Holocaust, or by the Charles Manson crowd against the estate of their victims.

Glendale Municipal Judge Cheryl Krott fined Daniel Bishop, president of Unique News & Video, and store manager Gary Enea $850 each and sentenced them to two years of unsupervised probation. The two men were found guilty in November of violating a city use and occupancy permit by illegally installing about 20 token-operated video booths.

WASHINGTON - While a national debate has erupted over the Obama administration's lethal drone strikes overseas, federal authorities have stepped up efforts to license surveillance drones for law enforcement and other uses in U.S. airspace, spurring growing concern about violations of privacy. The Federal Aviation Administration said Friday it had issued 1,428 permits to domestic drone operators since 2007, far more than were previously known. Some 327 permits are still listed as active.

What some charities are doing "is selling their name for 10 cents on the dollar. They don't control the store, they don't hire the solicitors, they just let (operators) use their name." In the beginning, the Ellisons salvaged troubled souls. Now they make fortunes in salvage.

Their names are Duke, Bob's, Bernie's Reliable, Baedeker's Guide, and Lawton, and it would be inconceivable for many horse-racing fans to go to the track without buying one. Can't tell the horses without a program? Some racegoers believe they can't find a winner without their favorite tip sheet. At Santa Anita, five tip-sheet operators are allowed to sell their selections at kiosks inside track entrances, and for $2 you get one of their slogans and an eclectic list of betting possibilities.

When the deadline passed Monday afternoon, Los Angeles city officials counted 169 notifications from people who intend to continue running medical marijuana dispensaries. Dispensary operators crowded the city clerk's office to beat the 4 p.m. deadline that ended the weeklong notification period. Burdened by the paperwork-intensive process, relieved staffers cheered when the last form was filled out. "The majority came in on the Mondays and then it was steady in between," said Holly L. Wolcott, the executive officer for the city clerk.
