Two Los Angeles officials proposed a so-called zero tolerance policy Tuesday that calls for banning drivers from city vehicles if they fail a single drug or alcohol test. But others were skeptical, and the drivers union vowed to fight the idea. City Councilmen Joel Wachs and Rudy Svorinich Jr. called for a tougher policy that would prohibit city employees who fail drug tests from driving city trucks or any city vehicle.

A group of Watts residents protested at Los Angeles City Hall Tuesday, claiming a councilman has ignored their repeated pleas to close five alleys that have been plagued by crime and illegal trash dumping.

Councilman Rudy Svorinich Jr. proposed Tuesday that Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard C. Parks, who last year ruled out compressed police work schedules, "reconsider his decision." Svorinich said a pilot compressed work schedule, which allowed officers to work three 12-hour days a week, "reported a number of benefits," including a decrease in overtime, better "quality of life" for the officers and improved morale.

Reaching across the city, council members backing cityhood studies for the San Fernando Valley and the harbor area joined forces Tuesday to formally request that the city identify funds to help pay for the work.

Two officials proposed a "zero-tolerance" policy Tuesday for city drivers who fail drug or alcohol tests, but others were skeptical and the local union vowed to fight any change. Los Angeles City Councilmen Joel Wachs and Rudy Svorinich Jr. called for a "tougher, saner, smarter" policy that would prohibit employees who fail drug tests from driving city trucks or other vehicles.

The South Bay congressional seat that Jane Harman is giving up to run for governor is quintessential California. It's got style--some of the best surfing beaches in America. It's got substance--the economic engines of Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles Air Force Base and, coming soon, one of Hollywood's largest independent production facilities, 14 sound stages scheduled to open in a few weeks in Manhattan Beach. Stretching from Venice to the beach cities and Torrance and then around the Palos Verdes peninsula to San Pedro, it's also the essence of American suburbia.

On the Los Angeles waterfront, roots run deep and family still matters. So when it came time for Los Angeles City Councilman Rudy Svorinich Jr. to enter a political fund-raiser for which he was guest host, or walk away with picketing longshoremen, he walked. "For me, it was a personal issue," said Svorinich, who caused a stir in the local political community when he turned away from a $100-a-person fund-raising dinner for Assemblyman Phil Hawkins (R-Bellflower).
