--The national executive board of the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow women to be scoutmasters, delighting those who fought the male-only leadership policy in court. A Scout spokesman said the rule was dropped, even though it had withstood legal challenges for 12 years, because the court battles had become too expensive. "It has cost the organization millions of dollars to defend a position that makes common sense," said Ron Phillippo, a Scout official in Minnesota.

Even after completing her second "RoboCop" outing as Detroit police officer Anne Lewis, actress Nancy Allen admits that "swinging guns and throwing punches around just doesn't come naturally to me! The physicality of the role was foreign to me, and I had to work hard to make it real. It's sort of the antithesis of what I was trained for, which was dancing." But, according to Allen, Officer Lewis has plenty to do in "RoboCop 2," which opens June 22.

A make-believe ice rink, skaters and several inches of artificial snow transformed the Hyatt Regency Irvine into a "Winter Wonderland Fantasy" for the 11th annual Opera Ball. Attending the Saturday night gala for Opera Pacific were 450 guests; the women in sparkling gowns of winter white and the men in black tuxedos. The $175-per-person benefit was expected to net about $100,000 for Opera Pacific, Orange County's professional opera company.

Thousands of Ventura County students will start their school year in spruced-up classrooms or on new campuses, thanks to developer fees and school bonds. School districts in Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley plan to open new elementary schools within the next two weeks. Ventura Unified just broke ground on one to open in September 1999. Early next year, Moorpark expects to open its first magnet school, specializing in performing arts.

Ed Miller locked himself away for five days recently to put together a quilt panel for a friend who had died of AIDS. During that time he fluctuated between being angry and sad while remembering the good times they had shared. Making the quilt was a cathartic experience, said Miller, 31, of Stanton. It also gave him the chance to create a memorial for his friend. "I wanted everyone to know that he was here and made contributions," Miller said.
