At a recent state Senate hearing, Perry Crouch wanted some answers to his questions about the $2-billion Alameda Corridor--the proposed rail expressway designed to speed cargo to and from the county's ports. Would the project generate enough jobs to help the area's unemployed, Crouch asked members of the Senate Transportation Committee. Were there conflicts of interest involving prominent lawyers and companies doing business with the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority?

Three-year-old Tamika Triggs is safe today. Clean, fed and supervised by responsible adults, she no longer needs to pretend to sleep on her mother's lap as the woman shoots up heroin and smokes crack cocaine. Los Angeles County social workers tracked down Tamika on Sunday after she was featured in a Times series, "Orphans of Addiction," by urban affairs writer Sonia Nazario and staff photographer Clarence Williams. She now lives temporarily in the respite of a foster home.

On Feb. 24, 26-year-old Stacey Davis, broke and recovering from an addiction to speed, checked into a Long Beach hospital, where a doctor sterilized her by tying her tubes. The next day, an Orange County organization mailed her a check for $200. "I'm not going to lie," said Davis, a mother of three children in foster care. Although certain she didn't want any more children, she was also attracted by the promise of a reward. "I mean, I need the money right now. I need to do something for me."
