The honeymoon lasted about half an hour. First, the three newly elected slow-growth council members took their oaths of office in front of 200 supporters at a San Gabriel City Council meeting Tuesday. Then the three introduced a surprise "transition team," including a lawyer and a consultant with links to Irwindale, one of the most development-minded cities in the county. There were some thunderstruck stares in the audience.

Paid workers who once circulated petitions to support a commercial airport at the El Toro military base are not qualified to circulate a new round of petitions that would block the same project, activists claimed in court Thursday. "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander," said attorney R. Zaiden Corrado, who represents residents opposed to a new airport. Orange County Superior Court Judge Francisco F. Firmat's response drew chuckles in the courtroom.

Orange County voters will get their say on Measure S, a ballot initiative that would block a proposed commercial airport at El Toro, even though some signatures supporting the measure may have been improperly collected, a judge ruled Friday. Superior Court Judge Francisco F. Firmat acknowledged that some workers who circulated petitions to qualify Measure S for the March 1996 ballot were not registered to vote in Orange County, as required by county election law.

A Superior Court judge struck down two Irwindale ballot initiatives Tuesday that could have opened the way for card clubs in the city. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Diane Wayne, upholding her tentative May 2 ruling, agreed with the Irwindale City Council that one of the measures would conflict with the city's rightful power to set and change zoning and issue permits. The judge struck down the other measure on the grounds that the two were inextricably linked.

Just as city officials were sounding optimistic again about landing the Raiders, one of Irwindale's key negotiators left--for the second time. Xavier Hermosillo, who was fired as public relations consultant in May, 1988, and then rehired earlier this year at $100 an hour, has left again, for undisclosed reasons. His departure has left Raiders executives skeptical about Irwindale's ability to put together a stadium project for the team.

A panel appointed seven months ago to investigate Police Chief Don Tutich has found no merit to charges by rank-and-file police officers that the chief was an ineffective department head and had altered the report on an accident involving a member of his family. In a terse statement released last week, the city announced that "after considering all of the testimony," the three-man Police Department Review Committee "concludes that it finds no basis for the charges."

In court documents filed last week, attorneys for former Bradbury City Manager Aurora (Dolly) Vollaire say city officials knew how she was spending city money and should be held accountable for Vollaire's actions. The city sued Vollaire in Pasadena Superior Court last month, seeking at least $84,000 in restitution for money she allegedly misspent over the past decade, much of it on personal luxury items.

It's bury-the-hatchet time in this city, which has been shaken for the past year by rancorous political rivalries. Three new councilmen, who were elected on a slow-growth platform, were joined by an old nemesis on the council Tuesday in selecting a fourth slow-growth activist to fill a vacancy in their ranks. Ted Anderson, who managed the campaign that brought the new slow-growth majority to the council, was unanimously selected to replace former Mayor Janis Cohen.
