Dwarfed by the Long Beach-Los Angeles hub, Ensenada's new container port and steamship service pose no threat to the hegemony of its neighbors to the north. If all goes well, Ensenada will move all of 35,000 containers this year--or half of 1% of the cargo handled in Southern California in 1998.

Roberto Chavez was 8 years old when he began fantasizing about the inevitable day he would follow his brother to the U.S., then return to his poor Mexican village smelling of money. What he did not know, in fact never could have imagined, was that the Los Angeles employer that helped him buy a home and raise five children would ship his job to Mexico after 15 years of loyal service.

A Mexican businessman has been sentenced to three months in jail and fined $25,000 for transporting hazardous waste from the San Fernando Valley to Mexico--the first conviction involving an international border under a 1985 California toxic waste law, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The Valentine's Day gift Ruth Singer received years ago could not be wrapped up neatly in a jewelry box, or even hidden under the bed until the special day arrived. Her gift was 307 feet long and had been used by more than 25 million people. For Valentine's Day in 1977, Singer's husband gave her the fabled Catalina, known as the Great White Steamer, that ferried passengers between San Pedro and Avalon for more than 50 years, starting in 1924.

With the sweeping shake-up of its customs service this week, the Mexican government made a bold statement about its commitment to reform.

In their place will be a corps of younger, better-trained and better-paid officers.
