A fire Monday heavily damaged a 6,000-square-foot mansion that once was the home of the late Los Angeles Times Publisher Otis Chandler. The fire, reported shortly before 6 p.m., was still active more than four hours later. No one was in the home, and there were no injuries. Jim Anderson, San Marino fire marshal, said the home may be a total loss. He said arson investigators were called to the scene in the 1000 block of Oak Grove Place, but he said he doubted that foul play was involved.

The City Council has backed a plan to demolish the 50-year-old public library to make way for a larger, modern facility because of overcrowding. Council members late Wednesday voted unanimously to replace the city library with a 27,000-square-foot building, nearly twice the size of the existing facility. The council directed city staff to seek qualified architectural firms to bid on the project.

From the street, this San Marino house looks much like it did when it was built in 1917 for Tristan and Elsie Coffin. Known as the Coffin House, the Italian Revival-style home allows a stroll down memory lane to more genteel times when a butler actually used the original butler's pantry, with its mahogany counters, and the maids' quarters needed two bedrooms for servants. Grand in scale, this well-preserved home sits back from the street.

After 10 years of membership, San Marino Mayor Bernard Le Sage announced his resignation Friday from a prestigious community organization that has a 70-year-old policy of barring women as members. "I probably should have quit before," Le Sage said Friday. "I probably should not have joined." Club members defended their policy in the face of Le Sage's protest. "There is no exclusion from our activities, just from our membership," said former President Ken Riley.

After a quick rise through the ranks of City Hall, Debbie Bell has been named San Marino's first female city manager. On Monday, Bell, 32, joined La Canada Flintridge's Gabrielle Pryor as the only female city managers in the San Gabriel Valley's 30 cities. She takes the reins in an upscale community where the privately run City Club allows women to attend its discussions on government but still only allows male members. But that does not bother Bell.

Six West San Gabriel Valley teen-agers have been arrested on suspicion of operating a San Marino-based mail fraud scheme believed to have taken in $250,000 in the last two years, police said Friday. San Marino Police Chief Paul W.

After spending a day behind closed doors, the key players in Scott Peterson's double-murder trial appeared in open court Thursday just long enough for a judge to adjourn for the day. Judge Alfred Delucchi said testimony would resume Monday. Peterson, his defense team and Delucchi began meeting in private Wednesday to discuss evidence investigators gained by bugging Peterson's phones.

A Taiwanese businessman was shot to death early Monday after a struggle in the driveway of his San Marino home, authorities said. Los Angeles County sheriff's homicide detectives, who were called by local police to investigate the slaying, said the motive for the attack in the 1300 block of Bradbury Road was not clear. A neighbor heard a car drive away moments after three shots were fired, investigators said. But no suspects were identified or in custody.

For 76 years, the men of the San Marino City Club have discussed local affairs, golfed and played tennis, and didn't have to deal with outside changes that to some make their all-male group an anachronism. All it took was one woman speaking up Thursday night after the latest speech in a series of club-sponsored programs to bring the hot-button issues of 1998 to the venerable organization's door.

If Jorge Roca Suarez had hoped to blend in among the denizens of San Marino, the alleged cocaine kingpin badly misjudged the ways of the clubby and genteel enclave. Long before his arrest Thursday by federal agents, the Bolivian immigrant had raised the eyebrows of neighbors of his 19-room brick house near Old Mill and Chelsea roads--one of the poshest corners in one of the nation's poshest communities.
