A Los Angeles City Council committee acted on Tuesday to prevent the interruption of nutritional and social services to thousands of East San Fernando Valley elderly. The committee ordered a one-month extension of the contract for the Wachs Senior Multipurpose Center in North Hollywood and 14 other such centers. Thousands of the center's elderly clients were warned by its operator last week that service would be suspended today because its contract had not been renewed.

A Los Angeles City Council committee on Friday recommended that the nonprofit agency operating the Wachs Multipurpose Senior Center in North Hollywood remain on the job. The city's Department of Aging has urged City Council to break its ties with Valley Interfaith Council, which provides meals, counseling, day care and legal advice each week to hundreds of elderly users of the center.

Sandra Miller, the mother of three children attending 49th Street Elementary School, first became alarmed about drugs when she heard that students were sniffing "white out"--the stuff secretaries use to correct typing mistakes--to get high. 'My kids told me that they had heard of people sniffing it in place of glue," Miller said. "It just shows that kids are being exposed to all kinds of different things."

Carson's attempt to annex 788 acres near its northeast boundary has been stymied by a split on the commission that must approve it, and by conflicts of interest that prevent three of the panel's seven members from voting on the issue. On Wednesday, the four members of the Local Agency Formation Commission who were eligible to vote split 2 to 2 on whether Carson's official "sphere of influence" should be extended beyond its current limits to include the area proposed for annexation.

The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday stripped the San Fernando Valley Interfaith Council of its longstanding contracts to administer a citywide ombudsman program and a North Hollywood senior-citizens' center but restored a third contract the agency had lost a year ago. The City Council's action overrode recommendations by a panel of outside advisers and a council committee that the Interfaith Council retain the contracts, paid for by federal funds administered by the City of Los Angeles.

Dead men tell no tales, but in Los Angeles, at least they can legislate. That was demonstrated Tuesday by Howard Finn, the former councilman who died in 1986. A routine motion filed by Finn in 1983 was unanimously approved by the City Council on Tuesday, without debate and without any apparent concerns about the status of the motion's author. Through a quirk in city law, council motions stay current and pending until they are passed, defeated or filed--no matter how long it takes.
