The federal government announced Thursday that it has sold its controlling interest in the Bicycle Club in Bell Gardens, nine years after seizing control because of money laundering at the card club. A partnership that operates a successful card club in Oceanside has agreed to purchase the government's interest for an undisclosed amount and plans to renovate the casino, the second-largest club in the state. The sale is a huge relief to federal officials.

Northern Arizona's red rock country is the scene of a growing dispute between the U.S. Forest Service and followers of the New Age movement, who say laws governing the use of public land restrict their religious freedom. The controversy involves the building of medicine wheels, sweat lodges and other New Age symbols on federal land near Sedona, 120 miles north of Phoenix. Devotees of the New Age believe in American Indian ideas of achieving harmony and balance in life, and respect for the Earth.

The American scientists were awe-struck when they finally penetrated the sheer cliffs and swept away the scorpions of Navassa Island, one of a handful of remote and anachronistic outposts claimed by the United States. What they found in July were riches far beyond Navassa's million tons of bird dung--a resource once so valued that it accounted for a rebellion by African American workers, complete with ax murders, leading to a landmark Supreme Court decision on U.S. sovereignty there.

Rep. Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) introduced his long-awaited bill Wednesday that would give El Toro Marine Corps Air Station to Orange County at no cost to help local officials steer the county out of bankruptcy. Under the proposed bill, the Marine base effectively would become a huge financial asset for the cash-starved county, which could sell the property in parcels to help overcome a $1.7-billion loss in the county's investment pool. The value of the base has been estimated at $1 billion.

The Clinton administration on Monday said it will sell its uranium-processing corporation as required under a 1992 law.

The company will sell 100 million shares of stock at between $13.50 and $16.50 a share and pay the U.S. Treasury an additional $500 million. In a letter to Sen.

California will stop trying to build a dump for low-level radioactive waste from hospitals, schools and companies if the Clinton administration does not transfer the proposed Ward Valley site within six months, Gov. Pete Wilson said Friday. Wilson's warning was in response to the Clinton administration's Wednesday reopening of an environmental review of the dump site in the Mojave Desert near Needles. That will delay transfer of the federally owned land for at least a year.

The city of Los Angeles should consider asking for help from the National Guard to clear brush from government property, a council member said Friday. Citing the continuing threat of fire, City Councilman Mike Feuer proposed that the city begin talks with Gov.-elect Gray Davis and the U.S. Department of Defense about getting Guard help. Feuer said there are hundreds of government-owned properties in Los Angeles that have not yet been cleared because of a lack of resources.

The Marine Corps wants to build housing for Camp Pendleton officers and their families on a 40-acre site where the late President Richard Nixon once had a Western White House office compound. The military proposes to put the 128 duplex units on San Mateo Point next to several San Clemente neighborhoods next year. The project would cost $5 million to $10 million and take 12 to 18 months to complete.
