Southern California Edison has signed contracts with two companies for the construction and operation of seven solar power plants in the state, including one that the utility said would be among the largest single solar photovoltaic installations in the U.S. The facilities, when completed by 2016, would add a total of 831 megawatts of electricity-generating capacity, enough to power 540,000 homes, the Rosemead utility said Monday. That represents a significant increase in Edison's ability to deliver power from the sun and other renewable sources.

Although he was an only child, Brian Pedro seemed to have two brothers. In Southern California, where Pedro grew up, he had a large extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. He was especially close to his cousin Alex "Bubba" Droz, whom he always introduced as his younger brother. Even when they were pressed and people pointed out that the two looked nothing alike, the pair would stand by their claim ? they were brothers. Even an Army news release sent out by Pedro's battalion got it wrong ?

Petersen of Irvine, the Assembly of God minister killed in a plane crash near Rosamond last June, filed suit Tuesday, claiming negligence on the part of the church's district council, the owner of the aircraft and the pilot led to Petersen's death.

For years, scrap collectors felt it was their right to collect, store, and burn toxic wastes in the desert community of Rosamond. The desert, as your reporter pointed out, was viewed by these persons as a place free from "big city rules and regulations." As your article ("Rosamond Malignant Mystery," Part I, Sept. 30) documented, this attitude has led to a community polluted by toxic wastes which may be killing the town's inhabitants. It appears that the "individualists" who skulked off to the desert with their toxic wastes, who interpreted minding one's own business to mean having a total disregard for safety and human life, got a little more than they bargained for. Along with their precious "freedom," they have rampant disease, children dying of cancer at five times the statewide rate, and a terrible legacy of polluted soil and air. When will some desert dwellers (and users)

Rosamond Carr, an American expatriate who transformed her Rwandan flower shed into a refuge for children orphaned by genocide, died Sept. 29 at her home near Gisenyi in the mountains of northwest Rwanda. She was 94. Her niece Ann Howard Halsey said the possible cause of death was pneumonia. Carr had been living in Rwanda for more than four decades when, on April 6, 1994, a plane carrying the Rwandan president was shot down over the capital, Kigali.

In Boston, tradition is thicker than clam chowder made with cornstarch. There's almost no escaping it. Rosamond Purcell is a Boston artist whose work plugs right into established aesthetic tradition -- one whose tangled roots in European and American art date to the 1910s. What's curious about Purcell, who began showing photographs in 1973 and has since branched out into sculpture, is that the tradition her current work evokes is distinctly Californian.

God might not be a Paraclete High Spirit, but at least the Pope was on their side. Paraclete High will play for its third consecutive Southern Section football title next week, thanks to a scrappy quarterback, a talented running back, plenty of offensive beef and perhaps a little divine intervention. It added up to a 47-26 rout of top-seeded Rosamond on Friday night in a Division XII semifinal before an overflow crowd of more than 5,000 at Rosamond.

Poor Africa. Who could love a paradise so wrecked, so lost, so intimate with suffering? After the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Rosamond Halsey Carr had her doubts. She had called this mountain kingdom her home for nearly 50 years and now wondered what life would be like in a country "whose soul had been extinguished." Nothing was the same, nothing except the memories--and the desire to help. Eighty-seven years old, Carr lives today in the Rwandan city of Gisenyi, near the Congo border, attending to the lost and orphaned children and casting her mind to the past.

Against the pop-psyche, New Age, millennial spiritualisms that occupy the front tables and the self-help shelves of our mega-stores, here are half a dozen titles from the darker and scholarly precincts of medical history, sociology, arts and the arcane to remind us that we are bodies in motion and at rest. We are flesh and blood and bone, beings corruptible and incorruptible.
