Orange County's first privately run jail is now open for business. And with a fresh coat of paint, laundry-fresh linens and remote-control color televisions in the larger cells, the Seal Beach City Jail is almost like home. Except for those big iron doors. Bud Grossman, former Western Region director of the federal Bureau of Prisons, spent $50,000 to renovate the never-used City Jail, which he expects to generate a profit for himself and for the city.

Amid growing debate about privatizing county services, the small city of Seal Beach has quietly completed its first year with the only privately run jail in Orange County. City officials are calling the experiment an unqualified success. "This is a pretty gutsy maneuver for Seal Beach," said Police Capt. Gary Maiten, who oversees jail operations for the city. "I stuck my neck out politically; the city manager did; the police chief did. And it's worked."

A judge Thursday sentenced Laker forward Elden Campbell to four days in jail and fined him more than $1,850 for crashing his car while driving drunk in July. At the request of Ventura County prosecutors, Campbell was given twice the jail term a first-time drunk driver usually receives. In arguing for the harsher sentence, prosecutors said Campbell was driving more than 100 m.p.h. when he flipped his car on California 118 in Simi Valley and then refused to take a blood test after he was arrested.
