Buried in the details of the deal to close California's $19-billion budget deficit is a roughly $30-million tax break crafted to benefit a company owned by members of one of the state's richest and most politically influential families, according to a legislative analysis obtained by The Times. The provision, which will allow the Humboldt Redwood Co. to deduct $20 million in old losses from future taxes, is also expected to cover penalties and interest for the firm co-owned by three sons of Donald G.

First Gagne, now Gap. Gap Inc. said Thursday that its streak of 20 straight months of higher sales reports ended in June as weak receipts at its Gap and Old Navy stores offset gains at Banana Republic. Although not as eye-popping as the end of Dodger reliever Eric Gagne's 84-game consecutive saves streak, Gap's results were a surprise to some analysts who figured the San Francisco apparel retailer would post another month of gains.
