Orange County Water District directors have approved a $67-million operating budget for 1998-99 that will slightly raise the price of wholesale water in July. The budget increases the cost of ground water from $91 to $94 an acre-foot, the unit of measurement used for water. It would take, for example, 300 acre-feet of water to fill the Titanic, said Ron Wildermuth, spokesman for the district. This is the second consecutive year that wholesale water rates went up $3.

The 60th anniversary bash CBS threw itself last spring in West Hollywood had all the trappings of a power party, right down to the shiny metallic balloons. But when the balloons floated away the next day, the fun fizzled out. The highly conductive balloons became entangled in Southern California Edison Co. power lines, the utility says. With a flash and a bang, the 4,000-volt Cynthia line serving 930 customers in Beverly Hills melted and fell onto the La Peer circuit.
