Culver City will consider a plan Monday night to construct a combined city hall/civic center complex within two to three years. Officials want to replace the city's 59-year-old building at Culver Boulevard and Duquesne Avenue because it is overcrowded, inaccessible to the handicapped and not in conformance with building and safety codes. The city is also trying to interest various agencies in a large-scale civic center to help pay for the project.

Candidates for the West Valley school board seat repeatedly called for smaller classes Thursday night at the first joint gathering of the campaign, a forum at Stagg Street Elementary School in Van Nuys. Elizabeth Ginsburg, a candidate who is a history and government teacher at Chatsworth High School, said crowded classrooms had created a "sardine syndrome" in the district.

Dinner time is usually a long time away for children who arrive home from school as early as 3 p.m. But a made-ahead treat that children heat in the microwave can ensure that they are eating right, even when you're away. Most of today's health-conscious parents will want to provide healthy snacks for their after-school munchers but may find that today's children look cautiously at concoctions of celery, peanut butter and the like.

Thursday evening is Live Bait's weekly "college night" promotion. The slogan posted on the huge neon sign outside of this wild, surf-shack-themed club is "where you're guaranteed to catch your limit." Manager Mike Zorn says things have slowed on Thursdays since summer ended. That's hard to believe. The capacity is 650, and there must be around 600 here tonight, meaning there is barely room to hold a glass of beer. Don't forget that I.D.--without it you won't get in, much less get a beer.

The Lechugas of Whittier bounded through the doors of the new Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach like thousands of other visitors Saturday. The big tank of predator fish at the back of the foyer caught their attention right away, and the three older girls, Lexi, Kristen and Carisa, rushed right up to it. "I see the long fish with the black tail that's so skinny," said Kristen, the talkative one. "I think they're stingrays." Actually, they were giant sea bass.

It was a chance encounter out here in the cold surging water, half a century ago. Nature's immutable cycles caught up with some of the most ambitious fishermen of the age. The sardine disappeared. There was disbelief, as you might imagine, even panic. Prayers resounded from the pulpits. The state Legislature legislated. News spread in the newspapers. Experts were summoned to investigate just what had cast this shadow on the California dream. These events have faded in memory now.

It's 7 a.m. and someone is pummeling my cabin door. Want to go for a run? I recognize the voice of the blonde from Miami. Run, where? We're in the middle of Penobscot Bay off the Maine coast on an 83-foot dolled-up sardine boat. And, while it's roomy enough, it's not the Queen Liz. Sleeping in is now impossible. Might as well see what she's about. After hastily making my ablutions at the tiny sink in my cabin, I scoot up the iron steps to the ship's salon.

It's early morning, and the clouds still hang over Newport Harbor. But already, it's rush hour in the water at Newport Bait Co. Sea lions exchange barks with Zuke and Kilo, the dogs that protect the bait barge from swooping, hungry gulls. The barge, as it always does during the warm months, bobs in the channel between the rock jetties at the harbor entrance. And as usual, the fishing boats line up, waiting for sardines, anchovies or mackerel. John Cunningham, part-owner of Newport Bait Co.

Consider the Calmond, a shiny foil packet of calcium-enriched, slivered almonds courtesy of Blue Diamond Growers. Sound good? Well, don't look for it soon at a market near you. It'll never sell in America. And that's just the point. Mixing almonds with dried baby sardines--Calmond's calcium source--is part of an effort by Blue Diamond to create products that suit the Japanese palate for sale in Japan.

If you're planning on preparing baked pasta with fresh sardines any time soon, you might be well advised to attend actor Vincent Schiavelli's cooking class Saturday at Amestoy House Cooking School in Ojai. Schiavelli, a native of Brooklyn now residing in Los Angeles, will create the fish dish, straight from his grandfather's century-old Italian recipe, to mark the annual Sicilian celebration of the Feast of St. Joseph. "Fresh sardines are rich and oily and really quite wonderful.
