Robert G. Beverly, a Republican who served in the state Legislature for nearly 30 years and may be best known for consumer-protection legislation that led to California's lemon laws, has died. He was 84. Beverly, who also was a lawyer, died Wednesday of complications related to Parkinson's disease at his home in Manhattan Beach, said his son William. Beginning in 1967, Beverly represented the South Bay in the Assembly. Nine years later, he jumped to the Senate to represent the 27th District, which eventually stretched from Rolling Hills to Downey.

Politicians have long exchanged tips on speechifying and deal-making, but state Sen. Robert G. Beverly got some useful advice of a different sort from a fellow GOP official. U.S. Rep. Steve Horn (R-Long Beach) underwent surgery for prostate cancer last year and urged all men older than 50 to get yearly screening with a special blood test called prostate-specific antigen screening. Beverly, age 70, took note--and took the test.

According to recent campaign disclosure statements filed with the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder's office, Assemblyman Bob Epple has raised more in the past 3 1/2 months than any other candidate running for state office in Southeast Los Angeles County.

Everyone calls it the Century Freeway. But that's not its name. The freeway, which is under construction, actually has two names. West of the San Diego Freeway, it is officially designated the El Segundo Freeway; east of the San Diego Freeway it is the Norwalk Freeway. Now, in a tribute to Congressman Glenn M. Anderson (D-Long Beach), state senators have voted to rename the freeway in recognition of his work in funding numerous area transportation projects.

Flores joins four other Republicans competing in the newly drawn 36th Congressional District--among them Maureen Reagan, former President Ronald Reagan's daughter.
