For the second time in recent months, critics have accused Rockwell International of giving the government false assurances about local readiness to cope with radiation injuries if there were an accident at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory west of Chatsworth. The charge was leveled by Los Angeles Physicians for Social Responsibility, one of several groups fighting Rockwell's application to extend for one year the special nuclear materials license for Santa Susana's hot lab.

Give the Santa Susana Repertory Company credit for showing the nerve to adapt "Treasure Island" as a new musical. Better still, give them cash--the show provides a lot of fun for the money.

Future housing development at Boeing's Santa Susana Field Laboratory near Chatsworth would be prohibited under legislation proposed by state Sen. Sheila Kuehl. Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) wants to permanently bar housing construction on the scenic hilltop should Boeing ever vacate the property, which is operated by the company's Rocketdyne division.

The second production of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" to open in Ventura County this month is, historically, the longest running. The Santa Susana Repertory Company's sixth annual edition opened last weekend at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, a week after the Soap Box Players' premiere version debuted in Simi Valley. The Santa Susana company first produced "A Christmas Carol" in 1989 at the same building--a converted church--where the Simi Valley version is now running. Coincidence?
