Seeking to alleviate traffic congestion near South Pasadena Middle School before and after the school day, the city is considering closing off Rollin Street to through traffic. A city advisory committee is examining four potential solutions to relieve congestion at the school. All the alternatives involve an Edison Co. right of way between Rollin and Oak streets to be used for student drop-off and pick-up. In addition, three of the solutions call for mid-block closures of Rollin Street.

"It is a multi-victim, multi-suspect, multi-allegation investigation," said Lt. Stuart Heller of the Sheriff's Department Juvenile Investigation Bureau. "Based on the allegations made, there is a potential of serious misconduct there." South Pasadena Police Chief Thomas E.

An investigation into allegations of misconduct by staff members at a small private school in South Pasadena has uncovered "no major revelations" of abuse, although the inquiry will not be finished until the end of this week, authorities said Wednesday. "Right now there haven't been any significant developments," said South Pasadena Police Chief Thomas E. Mahoney. "No one thing has led us to something else."

The South Pasadena Board of Education has approved a new contract with 158 teachers, giving the teachers a 10% wage increase beginning next month. In the action taken late Monday, the board also agreed to binding arbitration on disciplinary and policy matters, something a majority of the board had opposed last week, saying it threatened the panel's independence. Last Wednesday, the teachers staged the first strike in the district's 100-year history.

Look who's backing more taxes in South Pasadena. The taxpayers association. "There is no free lunch," said Tom Biesek, founder of the South Pasadena Taxpayers Assn. "You have got to pay for it." Funny. It doesn't sound like a taxpayers association. But Biesek's group is endorsing a bond measure to raise $28.7 million for school repairs. "This is 1995, not 1895, but a lot of the buildings look 1895," Biesek said. "You cannot teach in broken-down schoolrooms."
