A majority of the five county supervisors say they will support a proposal to rejoin the Southern California Assn. of Governments, a powerful regional planning organization that Orange County left in 1989. The suggestion to rejoin the group and begin paying dues again came from Supervisor Thomas F. Riley, who asked the board to take that step in order to ensure that the county does not lose its voice on regional issues such as transportation, air quality and growth management.

A man who had impersonated a Los Angeles County firefighter at natural disaster sites around the country, including the World Trade Center and Hurricane Katrina, was convicted Monday. James Campbell, 45, pleaded guilty to two felony counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one misdemeanor count of fraudulently impersonating a firefighter, according to the Orange County district attorney's office. He was sentenced to 120 days of home confinement. Campbell, who could not become a firefighter or have firearms because of a past felony conviction, was arrested in September at his home, where authorities found an extensive collection of firefighting gear and photos.
