Under the newly enacted proposal, cities and school district security forces on July 1 will begin paying $154 for each of the roughly 50,000 prisoners they book into county jails each year.

Teacher unions scored smashing victories Tuesday in four focal Orange County races. The surprisingly strong union wins came in elections marked by a sparse voter turnout and scattered problems with a new balloting system. In the most heated campaign, the faculty union in south Orange County's Saddleback Community College District ousted two incumbents and elected two union-endorsed candidates.

While there was statewide improvement in the 1986 California Assessment Program scores of 12th-graders, Orange County school districts this year showed mixed results. The annual CAP tests are given to seniors in December to determine their ability in reading, written expression, spelling and math. The results for high schools statewide were released Wednesday. As usual, most Orange County schools posted higher scores than the statewide averages in the four skills.

California Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren has concluded that paddling misbehaving schoolchildren and juvenile graffiti vandals would be constitutional. Opinion is divided on that point, but one thing, it seems to us, is clear: It would be wrong. Assemblyman Mickey Conroy (R-Orange) lost in his attempt last year to have the Legislature approve paddling, but he has promised to introduce two measures next year to permit that form of corporal punishment in the schools and the courts.

Life doesn't get any better than this. Orange County, declares the latest edition of the Places Rated Almanac, is the greatest place to live in North America. By comparison, that neighboring metropolis Los Angeles County ranked 34th with this blunt observation from the book's authors: "extremely abnormal." But for great weather, top-notch universities and superior arts, few other metropolitan areas topped Orange County's scores in this book, which went on sale Wednesday.

Some Orange County schools may have received a small boost in their California Assessment Program (CAP) eighth-grade writing scores because of an inadvertent leak of questions used in the test, state Department of Education officials in Sacramento said Monday.

Responding to the UC Irvine fertility clinic scandal, Gov. Pete Wilson signed legislation Wednesday making it a crime to steal human eggs and requiring written approval of donors before embryos, sperm and reproductive materials can be harvested. The measures by state Sen. Tom Hayden (D-Santa Monica) and Assemblywoman Jackie Speier (D-Burlingame) mark the first effort by the state to rein in the burgeoning field of reproductive medicine.
