The Belmont Learning Complex was envisioned as one of a kind. It would combine the city's first new high school in nearly 30 years with housing and retail development -- extras that could raise money to help cap construction costs at about $45 million. When the school opens in 2008, at least nine years behind schedule, it will indeed make history -- with its cost.

Vista: A photo caption accompanying an article about a failed retail development at Vista Hermosa High School in the Jan. 7 California section said that a training center at the school would open in the fall, at the same time as the school. As stated in the article, construction on the training center will not begin until after the school opens.

Hollywood would call it The Long Goodbye. Some in the Wilshire district would simply call it long-winded. Demolition of the landmark Ambassador Hotel to make way for a 4,200-seat campus is dragging on and on, they say, even though school officials have argued since the early 1990s that they desperately need its space for classrooms -- and need it quickly. The tear-down is in its fifth month -- and to many Wilshire Boulevard passersby and neighbors, there appears to be no end in sight.

When Jennifer and Marcus Errico purchased their home last year in Pasadena for just under $450,000, they had two things on their minds: affordability and steering clear of Los Angeles Unified School District. It was much the same story for Giselle and Craig Arteaga-Johnson, who in April bought a $326,000 Pasadena house.
