Residents of a Highland Park apartment building who endured 21 days without electricity during a searing heat wave say the experience kindled new friendships among strangers. "An incident like this brings everyone together," said Milton Douglas, one of more than 20 residents who withstood sultry heat in their apartments.

I walked into a big Highland Park storefront Tuesday night and saw the changing face of Los Angeles.

Saying he lacks the time and money to run a campaign and that he fears his candidacy could divide the city, Los Angeles City Councilman Nate Holden announced Monday that he has reluctantly decided not to enter the race for mayor. But Holden, an outspoken City Hall maverick who ran unsuccessfully in the last two mayoral contests, promised to continue his frequent attacks on Mayor Richard Riordan and his administration.

The effort to recall Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Hernandez has floundered for many reasons, but they do not include what he would most like to hear--some expression of his voting constituents' desire to have him stay.
