Calling Rick Selan a "workplace menace" who has caused them anxiety attacks, migraines and high blood pressure, 13 Los Angeles Unified School District employees sought a restraining order Wednesday against the special education gadfly and former school board candidate. "We really feel that at this point, he's become dangerous," said Sharon Giglio, assistant principal at Mark Twain Middle School in Venice, where Selan taught math for 22 years until 1999.

Gadfly Rick Selan and the Los Angeles school district have reached a tentative settlement that would keep Selan away from 13 women who sought a restraining order against him but would let him continue to represent students in special-education proceedings, his lawyer said Friday. The out-of-court settlement identifies two school district employees whom Selan would have to notify when he wants to attend certain meetings, attorney Howard Z. Rosen said.

Nine candidates filed papers Tuesday to run for three seats on the Los Angeles Board of Education, with two of the office-seekers clinching endorsements from Mayor Richard Riordan. The mayor is backing small-business owner Tom Riley against San Fernando Valley incumbent Julie Korenstein. Riordan also is supporting land-use attorney Jose Huizar for the seat being vacated by board member Victoria Castro.

It was like a bad game of telephone, the way rumors about last fall's school shooting began buzzing last month around the Venice High campus. The shooters had gotten off scot-free, the story went, because the district attorney let the case fall through the cracks. The youths had already returned to campus and begun beating up gang rivals. School district officials refused to expel them because every lost student reduces state funding.

With Los Angeles at a political crossroads, 51 candidates, many of them veterans of City Hall, submitted papers on the first day of filing Wednesday to run for city offices that include mayor, city attorney, city controller and eight City Council seats. Dozens of others are expected to file declarations of intention to run for office by Tuesday to be eligible to take out nominating petitions later in the month for the April 10 election.

So much for congeniality. An otherwise civil race for a Board of Education seat on the Westside has turned ugly in the days leading up to Tuesday's primary. Candidate Marlene Canter has sent a mailer to voters, accusing incumbent Valerie Fields of being "absent or tardy to 36% of board meetings last year when our kids needed you the most." Fields has accused Canter of distorting her record and launching a smear campaign.

The race for a Board of Education seat on the Westside has become the costliest Los Angeles school board election on record, with three candidates having raised more than $1.8 million before the primary, records show. The three--incumbent Valerie Fields, businesswoman Marlene Canter and real estate developer Matthew Rodman--are spending lavishly on mailers, television advertisements, banners and other publicity as the April 10 primary approaches.

Mayor Richard Riordan has jolted the Los Angeles school board race by withdrawing his support from incumbent Valerie Fields and endorsing a political newcomer with no experience in education. Riordan declared his support this week for Westside real estate developer Matthew S. Rodman, one day after he broke with Fields. Fields was clearly angry at the mayor's decision, saying he had endorsed her several months ago and spoke at a fund-raiser on her behalf.
