A toxic chemical used in dry cleaning and for degreasing equipment has been found underneath an Orange County building that is already the subject of two lawsuits, officials said Monday. Over the weekend, soil testing was conducted at the two-story office building that houses more than 550 county workers, including employees of the Orange County Social Services Agency and the Sheriff's Department. The testing, paid for by the county, was seen as a step forward in a years-long legal fight that includes former workers who say their time in the building caused birth defects, autoimmune diseases and cancer.

The Mississippi riverboat business is booming, with travelers willing to spend big on five- or 16-night cruises. Demand is so high that Delta Queen Steamboat Co. has spent $65 million to build the largest steamboat ever, the 418-foot American Queen. Travelers are lured by the ambience of the big ships.

Recent studies have shown that alcohol is the drug of choice among teen-agers. That makes "Over the Limit," today's "ABC Afterschool Special" about drinking and driving (3 p.m., Channels 7, 3 10 and 42), a timely one. But neither good intentions nor a good cast are enough to get the message across in this sudser directed by Nancy Cooperstein. High school senior Matt (Keith Coogan) attends an unsupervised party and gets drunk with his friends.

Herron is touring schools and libraries here to explain the story that for the last few months has been the focus of a tough discussion among academics, authors and publishers about racism.
