Bringing some much-needed electrons to California, a Kern County power plant owned by Edison International and ChevronTexaco Corp. began expanded commercial operation Monday, a month ahead of schedule. The Sunrise power plant, which began operating in June 2001 at 325 megawatts, now is capable of generating 570 megawatts, the two companies said. That's enough to serve nearly 500,000 homes. The plant is owned equally by Rosemead-based Edison and San Ramon, Calif.

It isn't much to look at. Just a couple of big turbines housed in dun-colored buildings that crouch on a dusty oil field in western Kern County. But the Sunrise Power Plant, which officially starts production today, represents a significant turn in California's energy fortunes. After months in which the state's power supplies have ebbed more than flowed, Gov. Gray Davis will flip a switch this afternoon to start up California's first major new power plant in 13 years.

When You Wish Upon a Start As Jim Hahn takes over as mayor of Los Angeles, some wishes for his administration from Angelenos in the know: Connie Rice, civil rights attorney and all-around smart policy person: "Patch together a network of 'educare' homework centers, before- and after-school care, parental training, sports programs, so poor kids are not being raised by the streets." Mike Feuer, departing councilman: "A reformed and rebuilt LAPD as soon as possible."
