Stepping up their criticism of Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn and his administration, about 100 people called Thursday for him to fire Police Commission President Rick Caruso because the commissioner allegedly used a slur to refer to U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles). Brotherhood Crusade President Danny Bakewell and City Councilman Nate Holden said at a rally outside City Hall that they will continue protesting until Caruso leaves his post.

The schedule of Sunday Masses for Catholic students at USC accommodates their studying, partying and sleeping habits. Services are offered at 10:30 a.m., 7 p.m. and at 10 p.m., a popular option that is lightheartedly nicknamed the "Last Chance Mass. " Upward of 400 USC students previously attended at least one Mass a week at a now-demolished chapel just north of the university's main campus. The showing was respectable but still a small fraction of the estimated 10,000 Roman Catholic students - about a quarter of the overall enrollment - at the nonsectarian university.

Austin Beutner, the wealthy former investment banker who struggled to gain traction in his yearlong campaign for Los Angeles mayor, dropped out of the race Tuesday. In an email to supporters, Beutner said he wants to spend more time with his wife and four young children. And in an unusual move, he pledged to pay back every person who contributed to his campaign. His exit comes after months of fundraising struggles, churn among his campaign staff and a recent poll that showed him capturing a dismal 2% of the likely vote in next year's election to replace Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who will be termed out. Beutner says money wasn't a factor in his decision, and said he had been prepared to pump his personal wealth into the campaign to accrue name recognition.

In a 4-0 vote Tueday, the Glendale City Council chose Rick Caruso to build the city's long-stalled Town Center project--a 13-acre outdoor urban neighborhood featuring offices, restaurants and retail stores. Caruso, who beat out veteran Los Angeles-based developer Jerry Snyder, takes over a project that has been on the drawing board for 15 years but was never built because of changes in the design plan and developers.

The City Council in a 6-4 vote narrowly confirmed the controversial reappointment Thursday of Department of Water and Power board President Rick Caruso. The appointment was opposed by City Councilman Hal Bernson and environmentalists who are unhappy about Caruso's stand on preservation of the Chatsworth Reservoir, a dry DWP reservoir that has become an unofficial wildlife refuge. Caruso, a prominent developer, has said he wants to consider other uses for the property, particularly soccer fields.
