A small Orange County mortgage banking firm, whose owner served a prison term for a 1989 loan fraud conviction, is being accused in a civil suit of defrauding a quasi-federal agency. The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. alleges that PFG Mortgage in Mission Viejo defrauded it of $8.5 million in the sale of mortgage notes. The company was renamed Silverado Bancorp earlier this month by owner Robert O. Potter in a move that some in the industry see as a poor judgment call or an odd sense of humor.

Steven Hughes of Ontario has a 40-mile commute, but he never gets frustrated. New Age relaxation tapes? Illegal substances? Nah, a plane-pool. Hughes, 31, is one of dozens of commuters who leave their homes in Redlands or Norco or Lake Elsinore and fly into Hawthorne Municipal Airport every day. For about $50 a week, paid to the owner and pilot of the plane, Hughes and his fellow plane-poolers get a seat on a small, usually single-engine plane.

Pentagon auditors on Thursday acknowledged that the projected $1.7-billion savings for closing the Point Mugu Navy base is outdated and that base-closing commissioners should not rely on their numbers to determine the fate of the facility, according to congressional aides. In a meeting with Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills) and congressional staff, Defense Department auditors said an inspector general's report was based on facts and figures that were compiled at least two years ago.

Like thousands upon thousands of far-flung Los Angeles-area commuters, Norco resident Don Hanson climbs into the driver's seat every morning, starts his engine and heads out on the long ride into L.A. Unlike other commuters, however, Hanson doesn't have to worry about stop-and-go traffic. In fact, Hanson maintains a constant speed throughout the 62-mile trip--about 140 m.p.h., enough to get him to his destination in 20 minutes. Hanson is not a car-driving commuter.
