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.

A few rebellious denizens of the town of Acton are planning for the day when they can tear down about two-dozen aluminum street lights. They don't like the way the glowing lamps blot out the stars in the desert sky, and they don't much like the way county officials thrust them on the community. The Actonites are mad enough about the street lights, and lots of other things, that they want to form their own city, freeing themselves for good of county tutelage.

A school bus collided with a Riverside County government pickup truck and careened into a culvert Monday, but the 57 high school students aboard avoided serious injury. The truck driver was hospitalized in good condition with chest injuries after he administered first aid to others at the scene, officials said. The school bus driver and seven students were treated for minor injuries and released.

Dynegy Inc., joiningx the list of power providers reporting strong results despite exposure to California's electricity crisis, said Tuesday that its fourth-quarter profit--excluding one-time gains and charges--more than doubled from a year earlier. The Houston-based company's profit probably would have been even better except for California's power mess. "Earnings from the company's West Coast generation were not material" to Dynegy's results in the quarter ended Dec. 31, the company said.

It certainly would be good for UC Riverside if it had a full medical school. Professional schools - especially medical and law schools - add luster to a college's reputation and can attract research money and elite professors. Whether it would be good for the state, or for the University of California as a whole, is another matter. Though we don't object to the concept of increasing the number of such graduate schools, this seems like the wrong time to embark on an expensive new project that will cost the state millions of dollars a year down the road.

Patricia Moore's longtime campaign manager testified Tuesday that he laundered payoffs to her from backers of a card casino in Compton, and once delivered $10,000 in cash to her from the city's commercial waste hauler. "I was used, I feel betrayed," Basil Kimbrew told a federal court jury in the former Compton councilwoman's extortion trial. Moore is accused of extorting $12,334 from Compton Entertainment Inc.

Alarmed by spiraling pension debt, Ventura County could join a growing number of local governments requiring that future increases in retirement benefits for public employees be put on the ballot. Voters in Orange County and the city of San Diego in recent years have stripped benefit-granting authority from their elected officials, reserving that power for the electorate. San Francisco has required voter approval of pension benefit hikes since its founding charter over a century ago.

In these parts, it's common to hear roosters crow in the morning, see horseback riders on the streets and drive by home after home with a mishmash of old cars and farm animals in their back yards. Everywhere in this unincorporated Riverside County village are signs that it is rural, rustic and independent. The roads have hand-painted signs and no curbs, street lights or sidewalks. And by and large, the residents want to keep it that way.

An unusual transfer of territory from one city to another became official in Riverside County on Friday, opening the door for development in Corona of 3,742 homes and nearly 11 1/2 acres of community shopping areas in the hills dividing the northeastern part of the city from southeastern Norco. The transfer, recorded Friday morning in the county recorder's office, moved the border between the cities northward to include within Corona's boundaries 712 undeveloped acres formerly in Norco.
