A man believed to be the "tennis-elbow bandit," wanted for robbing three dozen banks and stores in Los Angeles County during the last two years, has been arrested. Terrance Lynn Miller, 47, of Los Angeles was stopped Wednesday in North Hollywood by police who thought they recognized him. The robber earned his nickname because he wore an athletic bandage over his right elbow, though authorities believe it served to cover a tattoo.

IT'S REALLY A SALAD growing in a basket: eight fancy lettuces--reds, pinks, all shades of green, ruffled, frilled, romaine--each full-grown and anchored in soil in a handsome plastic container. No transplanting is necessary. Simply take an International Salad Bar home (about $10), put it in good light, water it occasionally and harvest the leaves for dinner. Or lunch. New leaves grow back, guaranteeing fresh greenery on the table for weeks.

An article appeared Dec. 31 in Valley Focus regarding Agoura Hills' decision to make it illegal to place fliers or other written materials into food packages in grocery stores ("Ordinance Bans Hate Packaged With Food"). The reporter left unclear as to whether there is protection outside of Agoura Hills pertaining to this activity. For the record, I received a hate flier in a box of crackers Oct. 14, 1995, in a grocery store in North Hills. It was vile and hateful, calling for the deaths of "brown people."

For the second time in a week, a K mart store was robbed at gunpoint by a man who apparently hid in the store until after closing and pulled a weapon on employees before loading the cash into a shopping cart and making his escape. The crimes are similar to three other recent robberies at K mart stores in Los Angeles County, authorities said. Police were searching Sunday for the suspect, who is accused of robbing the Ventura K mart store on Victoria Avenue Saturday night.
