The city of West Covina will pay Mt. San Antonio College $52,400 under a tentative agreement on a chlorine spill that killed thousands of fish and other wildlife at the college's popular wildlife sanctuary. The agreement, which must be approved by the West Covina City Council and the college board at meetings later this month, calls for the city to pay the college for the labor, materials and staff it will take to restock and restore the sanctuary over the next four years.

Seconds before showtime, the DJ took his place before the bank of monitors, switches and dials. He took a deep breath, a light flickered on above the door. Waffles was on the air. "It's the best in rock!" he said into the mike. "Let's start things off right!" With that, he kicked off a rollicking two hours on Mt. Rock Radio, the student-run station at Mt. San Antonio College. Howling guitars and heart-pounding percussion pulsed through the airwaves. The spiky-haired host, zinging with frenetic energy, drummed his fingers to the beat and sang along as he worked the boards and set up the playlist — Thin Lizzy, Joan Jett, the Ramones.

For those who run relays in track and field, passing the baton can be scarier than a scene from "A Nightmare on Elm Street. " Just ask sprinter Morgan Simon of Los Angeles Loyola High. He remembers suddenly dreaming about dropping the baton. "I looked around frantically," he said. So when the passing of the baton comes close to perfection, it's time to celebrate, and that's what Loyola's 400-meter relay team did after winning the Mission League championship last week in a school-record 40.89 seconds, tops in the state this season.

Re "Brown seeks to reshape colleges," Jan. 21 Instead of trying to take the community out of community colleges, Gov. Jerry Brown should address the root of the system's problems. As The Times notes: "Most of the schools' 2.4 million students are unprepared for college-level work: 85% need remedial English; 73% need remedial math. " The K-12 curriculum is not preparing students. We owe it to all high school graduates to make them proficient in reading, English and math. Too many state requirements and choices for students have diluted the pre-college curriculum.

Former state Sen. Ruben S. Ayala, a scrappy Democrat from Chino who fought for a controversial water project and helped create the California Conservation Corps during a legislative career that ran for 24 years until term limits forced him out, died of natural causes Wednesday in Ontario. He was 89. His death was confirmed by his son Maurice. After two decades in local government, Ayala was elected to the Senate in 1974, representing a district that encompassed the western San Bernardino County cities of Ontario, Fontana, Rialto, Colton and Chino in addition to Pomona in Los Angeles County.

He's not faster than a speeding bullet. He's not more powerful than a locomotive. And he can't leap tall buildings in a single bound. But Savante Stringfellow, who has Superman tattoos on his left biceps and left thigh, has led a U.S. resurgence in the long jump in the last two years. U.S. long jumpers, from Ellery Clark in the first modern Olympic Games at Athens in 1896 to Carl Lewis in the Games at Atlanta a century later, had won 20 of the 22 Olympics in which they had competed.
