Local transit officials Thursday recommended the awarding of a $205-million contract for 72 Green Line cars to a U.S.-German team that promises to open a Los Angeles plant that will be the nation's first modern manufacturer of rail cars. The award to Siemens Duewag Corp., a German company with a Sacramento facility, would create about 200 jobs in California and pump $17 million into the state's economy, company officials said.

When older Japanese Americans hear scare phrases like "ethnic integrity," they can be forgiven for flashing back to less-friendly times. But what if the speaker is Japanese American? Last month, Little Tokyo's New Otani Hotel & Garden was sold by longtime owner East West Development Corp. to a Beverly Hills real estate company, 3D Investments. Without much warning, the anchor tenant of a tourist-friendly cultural cluster was owned by a company run by two Iranian American brothers.

"Metro Is Coming Your Way!" announces the green and white sign near the intersection of El Segundo Boulevard and Nash Street in El Segundo. But what the sign does not say is that, compared to predictions of almost a decade ago, the Metro Green Line commuter railway is not coming your way very quickly, or very cheaply. When it finally opens in 1995--according to current projections--the Green Line will have cost almost three times more than once expected.

In his latest show of attention to the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan on Wednesday blocked a move that might have delayed construction of a Valley mass transit line linked to the Metro Rail system. Riordan asked the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to delay for one month the adoption of its planned budget, which would have provided funds for a Pasadena trolley line but none for the projected east-west Valley rail line.
