Racial conflicts between Asians and non-Asians in the San Gabriel Valley will become more frequent and severe if cities fail to begin offering significant social services, according to a United Way task force. A United Way study of the county's Asian communities concluded that racial tension is increasing in the San Gabriel Valley as immigrants continue to move into once-predominantly Anglo and Latino suburbs.

On game nights not too long ago, the blue and white of the Titans would blanket the San Marino High bleachers. The ritual often extended into the playoffs, once stretching into 14 weeks as the team reached the championship game. "It's what you did Friday nights," said D.R. Moreland, the school's rookie coach who played Titan football from 1987 to 1991. "The whole town shut down."

Little did San Gabriel Valley teacher Patrick Smolenski know that the lesson he had prepared for his Earth science class last Thursday would be so timely. Soon after the earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale struck, the few students who had not gone home in Smolenski's eighth-grade class at Jefferson Intermediate School in San Gabriel settled down to a lesson about the causes of all that shaking and rumbling that began at 7:42 Thursday morning.

South Pasadena's school board has placed on the Nov. 7 ballot a $28.7-million bond issue that would pay for campus repairs. The measure would require at least two-thirds voter approval. If it passes, property owners would pay an extra $62 a year in property taxes for every $100,000 in assessed value. The money would go to dozens of repairs in the South Pasadena Unified School District that were recommended by a task force in November, including maintenance to meet earthquake and building codes.

The West Covina Unified School District has rejected a proposal to send its middle school teachers to a Nov. 6 symposium because it will include a workshop on homosexuality. The board voted 3 to 2 Tuesday not to allow district teachers to attend a regional conference at the Riverside Convention Center, which will feature 36 seminars--including one on gay issues--saying they believe teachers should not dispense information about sexual orientation.

All 2,000 students at Pasadena High School were sent home early Thursday and U.S. Army ordinance experts were called to the campus after a locksmith trying to re-key the lock of the school's aging walk-in safe activated an anti-tampering chemical device, authorities said. The device in the safe door with an unknown chemical was discovered when the locksmith began work shortly before 9 a.m, said Pasadena Unified School District Police Chief Jarado Blue.

The science labs were in order, but the bill wasn't. After administrative turnover and a lot of haggling, the West Covina Unified School District voted to pick up the tab for construction costs that went $43,824 over estimates, officials said. The district originally voted not to accept the additional charges submitted by the Whittier construction company that was hired to convert six classrooms at Edgewood Middle School and two in West Covina High School into modern science laboratories.

The San Marino Unified School District hopes to do something about "the sorry state that our schools are in," said Supt. Thomas Godley. The district's five schools have not been refurbished since libraries were added to some schools more than four years ago, and one board member said, "The walls are crumbling around us." To raise money for renovation, the school board this week unanimously approved placing a $34.9-million general obligations bond on the June 4 ballot.

A group trying to recall three Bassett Unified School District board members received a big F from the county on their petitions. The registrar-recorder's office rejected the papers because of grammatical errors. Copies of the recall petitions submitted to the registrar for approval had mistakes in capitalization, punctuation and syntax, said spokeswoman Grace Romero, and were disallowed on that basis. Recall proponents must correct the errors and resubmit the papers within 10 days.

It wasn't so much the sinkholes in one school's field, one large enough to swallow a truck. Or the rats scurrying in the ceiling above a principal's desk at another campus. Or the broken pipes in several schools' bathrooms. Something else stuck in Art Reynolds' craw five years ago as he drove through Garvey Unified School District on his first day as facilities director: the missing letters on buildings that bore the school names.
