For years, the Powerine oil refinery in Santa Fe Springs drew heavy fines from air pollution agencies and a litany of complaints from neighbors. Residents said fumes from the 62-year-old plant burned their eyes and caused painful rashes. But since financial problems forced owners to wind down operations three years ago, neighbors say they have enjoyed a respite. That is about to change, some residents and environmentalists warn.

Health risks and the cost of hauling away tons of contaminated soil have all but killed hopes of converting a former dump site in Santa Fe Springs into a park, city officials said. Instead, oil companies that dumped toxic waste at the 43-acre site for more than a decade beginning in the 1950s are looking at topping the area with clay and concrete to make way for a possible outdoor storage facility, a plan suggested by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Santa Fe Springs city officials said Wednesday that they are considering a plan to revive job placement services that were eliminated during budget cuts earlier this year. Under the plan, a worker from the state's Employment Development Department office in Norwalk would be reassigned to Santa Fe Springs once a week to help job seekers who were served by the city program. Managers of the city's Community Services Department hope to meet soon with the state agency to discuss the plan.

Responding to residents' concerns, federal toxic waste inspectors began a fresh round of soil testing this week at an abandoned dump site in Santa Fe Springs. A project manager for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the tests are intended to update data recorded as early as 1989, as well as expand the sample area across the 43-acre site near Los Nietos Road and Greenleaf Avenue.

Three months ago, Monrovia residents Jim and Amy Emett bought a $142,000 Winnebago and took off for Prescott, Ariz., on a little shakedown tour. It wasn't a long trip, but they went far enough to learn a few things about their new toy. "It's grand," Amy Emett said of their 38-foot Adventurer. "It has three slides, French doors, a washer-dryer combination. It has the works." Riverside residents Kristin and Damon Bailey are starting down the same path.

A plastics factory inspector who killed two colleagues and wounded four others Thursday apparently began his shooting frenzy because he thought co-workers had mocked his sexual orientation, police said Friday. "I am not gay!" Daniel S. Marsden, 38, yelled during the rampage, police said. Officials said it remains unclear whether other factors caused him to attack his fellow employees.
