Pacific Bell has scheduled a series of meetings to allow public discussion of plans for a new Orange County area code. The county is rapidly running out of telephone numbers, largely because of the proliferation of faxes, pagers and computer modems. To address this shortage, a new area code will be introduced in Orange County, possibly as soon as December 1997. There are three proposals for the new code, including two that involve splitting the county along geographic boundaries.

Hundreds of law enforcement personnel are expected to turn out Wednesday for a funeral for a Bay Area Rapid Transit police sergeant who was mistakenly shot and killed by a fellow officer during a probation search earlier this month. The incident occurred the afternoon of Jan. 21 as  members of BART's detective unit were conducting a probation search at a sprawling apartment complex in the eastern Alameda County bedroom community of Dublin. Det. Sgt. Tom Smith was shot by  a field training officer for the force who apparently mistook him for a hostile suspect while emerging from a room, according to a report by the  San Francisco Chronicle,  which cited unnamed law enforcement sources.

Question: As a lessee, I would like to learn more about my tenant rights, especially with respect to repairs and alterations of the premises which aren't respected by our landlord. Can you tell me which organizations we should contact or which Web sites can assist us in our search? --G.M., Los Angeles * Answer: The simple answer to your question is that your landlord must keep the premises habitable. That means you must have heat and running water and a roof that doesn't leak.
