A federal appeals court Monday reduced a former South Gate official's corruption convictions. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9 th Circuit Court of Appeals threw out former Treasurer Albert T. Robles' convictions for  public corruption and money laundering but let stand five counts of bribery. Robles, who was accused of plundering the small, working-class city of South Gate, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2006 for illegal conduct involving city contracts. The 9 th Circuit ruling could trigger a reduction of his sentence, an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court or even possibly a retrial.

Jenny Gonzalez checked for signs of epipodium, tentacles resembling swaying wet noodles, on the green abalones in her South Gate classroom the other day. "That's what I was looking for," Jenny, 13, said of a small, light-colored abalone. "When you see the epipodium, that means they're happy. " That's one thing students at South Gate Middle School are learning about green abalones. The students have cared for three of the snail-like marine creatures since January. Although the activity has been in place at the school for three years, this is the first time teacher Violeta Llamas' "Explorations in Science" students participated.
