Wearing a patient's robe and walking with crutches, Anthony Garcia hobbled out of a Mission Viejo hospital on Nov. 13 and into a friend's car. Unfortunately, it was a getaway car. Garcia is wanted in connection with an array of crimes. If we're lucky, the massive screw-up by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department that permitted his escape will have a happy ending. Maybe he'll be captured; so far, he hasn't.

Three Southern California counties and the U.S. Army formalized an agreement Thursday that clears the way for the construction of flood-control barriers along the Santa Ana River, with Orange County being the major beneficiary of the project. Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties and the Army Corps of Engineers will share the cost of the $1.1-billion project to improve flood control along the river that authorities say has the worst potential flood problems west of the Mississippi.

Secret testimony used by the 1990-91 Riverside County Grand Jury for a report on alleged county fiscal mismanagement cannot be made public, a Superior Court judge ruled. Release of the transcripts was requested by the grand jury and others on the grounds that the public's right to know about county financial problems outweighed the need for secrecy. But release was opposed by the Board of Supervisors. Judge James T. Warren ruled that the testimony had to remain confidential under state law.

Hang onto that steering wheel. Transportation officials in Orange and Riverside counties have unveiled plans to add not one, but two car-pool lanes in each direction along a 12-mile stretch of the infamous Riverside Freeway. Authorities hope the new lanes, which would be the first double commuter lanes in the state, will ease the crippling congestion on the freeway, the prime link for hordes of commuters traveling between homes in Riverside County and jobs in Orange County.

Riverside County officials are proposing a major expansion of privately owned toll lanes planned on the Riverside Freeway, with costs and toll revenue to be split equally among private investors and Riverside and Orange counties. But Orange County transportation officials reacted cooly to the proposal, which they received earlier this week during talks aimed at speeding construction and averting Riverside County's threatened lawsuit against the project.
