Gray Davis and legislators continue negotiations with Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas & Electric about a state purchase of transmission lines and other proposals to return the utilities to financial health and find a way out of the electricity crisis.

A dispute over a 90-foot cellular transmission tower near the playground at El Morro Elementary School has angered parents so much that some have threatened to transfer their children to other schools. Others are vowing to fight until the tower comes down, parents said. "There's going to be some bloody battles ahead," said Doug Rowe, who has two sons at the school. "We will not take no for an answer. We're very, very determined."

Under pressure from renters at the Katella Estates Mobile Home Park, the city's Planning Commission has postponed a decision on whether to allow the installation of a cellular phone antenna nearby. Pacific Telesis Co. wants to install a 63-foot transmitter on Central Avenue, about 12 feet away from the mobile home park. Residents have agreed to meet with Pac Tel officials later this month to discuss what residents fear are the hazards of living next to the transmitter.
