Los Angeles celebrates its sixth CicLAvia on Sunday, with Venice Boulevard mostly closed to cars from downtown to the beach. Parts of Alvarado, 7th and Main streets will be closed downtown. The idea is to give people on foot and bicycles the chance to experience the city from a different perspective. About 100,000 people have taken part in past CicLAvia events, organizers say. There will be food trucks along the route and spots for children to learn bicycle safety. Rental bikes will be available near City Hall and in Mid-City Los Angeles, and there are water stops, rest rooms and first aid on the route.

While the Pope's American tour will no doubt bring millions a little closer to the divine, there is one very real earthly consideration that Los Angeles planners seem to have underestimated: Toilets. Unlike arrangements in at least six of the nine cities on Pope John Paul II's itinerary, the archdiocese of Los Angeles said it has no plans to provide portable toilets for the perhaps 1 million Southern Californians whom church officials are inviting to line the sidewalks along the Pope's 7.

A homeless man was arrested a second time after returning to the Akron, Ohio, church lawn where he said God wanted him to live. Jim Dunn, 52, had earlier been released when someone anonymously posted his bail. He started living on the lawn of First Congregational Church more than a year ago, after another church asked him to leave its parking lot. He lived in a makeshift tent and used rest rooms at nearby gas stations.

Jeffrey Jones has been found mentally unfit to stand trial in Sacramento for bludgeoning two men to death in rest rooms in January. Superior Court Judge Benjamin Diaz ruled that Jones, 25, could understand the charges, but could not rationally assist his lawyers. Diaz said he had a suspicion that Jones was malingering and was willfully refusing to cooperate with his lawyers. But he said he could not ignore the testimony of psychiatrists, who said Jones was mentally incompetent.

The City Council approved a more stringent method for computing how many parking spaces developers must provide. The formula for figuring parking spaces used to be based on a building's floor area minus area used for elevators, rest rooms, staircases and building equipment. The new formula simply computes the area within exterior walls. A survey of 15 surrounding municipalities showed that the new formula is more common.

The Redondo Beach City Council will hold a public hearing July 11 on the proposed use of Dominguez Park as a place where historic old homes scheduled for demolition could be preserved. Officials said a citywide search failed to turn up any other suitable sites. If the plan is approved, the 20-acre park at Beryl and 190th streets would provide space for several homes, beginning with the Morrell House, which is on a temporary foundation at the Perry Alison Playfield. The city paid about $80,000 to move the house from North Catalina Avenue to the play field in March, but abandoned plans to set it up there permanently after neighbors protested that they were being deprived of recreational space.
