Molina said she has not voted on any contract involving her husband, Ron Martinez, or his firm, PeopleWorks.

A former gang member died Thursday morning in what police called a gang-related shooting--making 1998 the second year in a row that Santa Paula has reported Ventura County's first homicide of the year. As officers spent New Year's Day searching for suspects, community leaders pointed to the killing as further evidence that the city needs to deal with its gang problems. Louie Fonseca, 27, was found at 1:48 a.m. bleeding in the street in the 100 block of Marin Road.

Here's the oxymoron baseball note of the season: Reseda High was scheduled to play two games in the L.A. Umpires tournament. When the Regents showed up to play, there were no umpires. The catchers called balls and strikes. The games didn't count on the Regents' record. * Rick Hellriegel of Taft, a senior catcher who transferred from Chatsworth, has five home runs in six games.

It's hardly news that two-career couples often have too little time to talk, or to catch up with one another and find out what the other is thinking and doing. Usually such communication shortcuts are of private concern only. But in Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina's case, a lack of communication with her husband, Ron Martinez, about a county contract is of public interest.

Churchgoers leaving Sunday services at the Crystal Cathedral were greeted by punk rockers protesting the Garden Grove church's plans to raze nearby apartments and replace them with a six-story family center. "We're concerned about the people being evicted," said Marc Eric Ely-Chaitlin, a spokesman for the group. "No one is doing anything to help them, and we're outraged that he (the Rev. Robert Schuller) thinks he can do this."
