In what one federal official called a "major milestone" toward protection of densely populated Orange County, the Senate on Thursday cleared the way for construction to begin next spring on the long-delayed Santa Ana River flood control project. Senate approval of an $18.4-billion energy and water bill that includes $20 million for the massive public works venture was greeted with jubilation by Orange County officials.

After spending $250 million on designing, planning and building the Seven Oaks Dam, engineers are ready to close the gates and start operations at the massive structure. But a few small things are in the way: rats and wild plants. The 550-foot-high dam near Redlands was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as the crown jewel in the Santa Ana River flood control project. It was designed to protect downriver residents against a 100-year flood and was supposed to be operating by now.

Blaming Fontana for failing to construct sidewalks, a San Bernardino County jury has awarded $37.5 million to the parents of a 14-year-old girl killed when a car struck her as she walked along a busy roadway after school. Karen Medina, a student at A.B. Miller High School, was killed on Cypress Avenue in December 2001 when a car driven by a 15-year-old unlicensed driver veered out of control. In a verdict delivered Monday, the jury decided the city is 75% liable for the damages.

The rain has stopped, but frustrated Southern California motorists are still dealing with the aftermath of rockslides, sinkholes and road repairs that have choked and stalled traffic in places from Ojai to Big Bear. Ojai motorists are enduring four-hour commutes after last week's heavy storms closed all but one of the five arteries leading to and from the normally placid Ventura County valley. Residents say they have been virtually stranded since Jan.

As Southern Californians braced for another punishing rainstorm that could unleash fresh floods as soon as today, state officials on Monday said they had urged operators of a Devore campsite to move trailers off the property six weeks before flash floods there killed two people. The California Geological Survey had identified the Kampgrounds of America trailer camp as posing the highest risk for loss of life and property after surveying hundreds of sites in the fire-ravaged San Bernardino Mountains.
