The drama continues to build at Sunlaw Energy Corp., the little company in Vernon that wants to clean up our air but can't. Can't, that is, because the Air Quality Management District won't let it. When I first wrote about Sunlaw earlier this year, it was trying in vain to get our once-vaunted air pollution agency to recognize the company's breakthrough in cleaning the filth from power plants. Smog and its cures, of course, have always been a magnet for charlatans.

Making good on a promise to abide by the will of local voters, a power plant developer announced Thursday that it will withdraw plans for a 550-megawatt project in South Gate and look elsewhere for a location. The decision by Sunlaw Energy Partners was the second victory in two days for environmentalists and South Gate officials who contended that the plant's pollution would jeopardize the health of millions of residents in southeast Los Angeles County.

Hoping to capitalize on the deregulated electricity market coming soon to California, Sunlaw Energy Corp. is proposing to build an 810-megawatt, natural-gas-fired power plant in Vernon that would start operation in 2002. The $450-million plant would generate about one-third as much energy as San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and would sell its electricity into the statewide Power Exchange starting up next year.

Former San Joaquin County Supervisor Lynn Bedford was indicted Thursday on federal corruption charges, including allegations that he took part in a conspiracy to commit extortion against an energy company. The grand jury also issued additional charges against Monte McFall, a former San Joaquin County sheriff's deputy and water board member facing mail fraud, attempted extortion and witness-tampering allegations.

Re "Proposed South Gate Power Plant Faces Fierce Opposition," Jan. 10: What not a surprise! Sunlaw Energy Corp. is proposing to put a massive, polluting power plant in the working-class, mostly Latino neighborhood of South Gate. If the plant will really make the air cleaner, as Sunlaw founder Robert Danziger claims, then why doesn't he have it built in his own neighborhood? RAUL VASQUEZ Los Angeles Angelenos have been feeling lucky that the "energy crisis" doesn't affect them, but look out!

Good news. Of a sort. The AQMD has capitulated in the matter of Sunlaw Energy Corp., finally allowing the company to help cleanse that soup of gases we refer to as "air" in Los Angeles. You may notice the irony of an air pollution agency being forced to "capitulate" to cleaning the air. But so it goes, as Kurt Vonnegut would say; that's the state of affairs these days at the AQMD.

Sometimes it's the little stories that are most fun. They can tell us more about ourselves, and how we operate as a culture, than the big stories. This little story begins down in Vernon, the belly of the industrial beast in L.A. If it's big and ugly, it probably gets made in Vernon. As the saying goes, Vernon may not be hell, it just smells like it. Smack in the middle of Vernon sits a little company known as Sunlaw Energy Corp. In 1995, Sunlaw did a remarkable thing.
