The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday replaced a ban on new churches in Rowland Heights with tighter zoning restrictions to control development in the unincorporated area. Supervisors last month barred new churches from opening in Rowland Heights for 45 days in response to complaints that congestion from houses of worship was depressing property values. The board unanimously agreed Tuesday to let that ban lapse Dec.

The fuse on a pipe bomb tossed by students into a classroom at a Rowland Heights high school this week was lit, police said Friday, contradicting an earlier report. The reason no one was seriously injured was that the fuse was snuffed out by chance when it hit the floor, authorities said. Sgt.

Sheriff's deputies Wednesday found another home in the eastern San Gabriel Valley that had been turned into an elaborate pot-growing operation. Authorities said they recovered nearly 1,400 marijuana plants worth an estimated $7.8 million from the home in the 1900 block of Arcdale Avenue. It's the fourth bust of a pot-growing house in the upscale suburban region in the last two weeks.

It's a nightmare on Morning Sun Avenue, says resident Sharon Bowler of this otherwise peaceful Rowland Heights neighborhood. The earth is on the move again, after slowing to a comfortable creep last week. The previous week, the hillside was cruising along at four feet a day, prompting county supervisors to declare a state of emergency. But in a 24-hour period during the weekend, it slid eight feet more--six feet in seven hours on Sunday. "Last night, everything broke loose," Bowler said Monday.

Los Angeles County supervisors declared a local emergency in Rowland Heights on Tuesday because of a landslide, but a public works spokeswoman said the pace of the sliding has slowed dramatically. "We're in good shape today," said Donna Guyovich, a spokeswoman for the county Department of Public Works. In the last 24 hours, the hill near Morning Sun Avenue has slid only a "fraction of an inch," she said. Last weekend the movement was three to four feet a day, Guyovich said.

In a round-the-clock effort, workers are digging a 30-foot-deep trench as a short-range solution to keep a sliding hillside from crashing into homes in the San Gabriel Valley community of Rowland Heights. Crews, which began work Saturday, continued their efforts Monday and planned to work through the night. The trench extends for 350 feet and is 90 feet wide. Geologists say the V-shaped trench cuts into the slide area as a means of relieving its force.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has come up with a new commandment: Thou shalt not open new churches. Well, at least not for 45 days. And specifically not in Rowland Heights. To hear some residents tell it, the San Gabriel Valley community of 49,000 is blessed with too many religious institutions, with churches popping up everywhere.
