Art teacher Bruce Kanegai received the greatest compliment from one of his students not too long ago. She said he taught her mother 20 years ago at Simi Valley High School, and she considers him the best teacher she ever had. "That's what it's all about," Kanegai said. Perhaps the second-greatest compliment came this week when Amgen Inc. named Kanegai one of five recipients of its annual Amgen Award for Teacher Excellence. The prize comes with a $10,000 prize.

A former employee filed a lawsuit against Cineplex Odeon and its Universal City Cinemas on Thursday, charging that the management of the movie theater complex at Universal Studios condoned a "pervasive environment of sexual harassment." Karen Kenney, 26, who worked as a personnel manager for Universal City Cinemas for about a year and a half before she was fired, said she was fondled and subjected repeatedly to crude jokes and explicit accounts of their sexual exploits by other employees.

Perched on gray boulders that seem to jut out of the Santa Monica Freeway, the Jeep Wrangler looks as if it is about to thunder off the side of an old garment warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles, flattening oncoming cars. The ad, part of a nationwide trend in wall murals featuring hamburgers a giant would choke on, bottles of beer that would flood a stadium and jeans that would blanket a small town, is whipping up a controversy just as colossal.

Plans to sell groundwater from beneath the Mojave Desert to Southern California suburbs are likely to pick up another approval Monday when Cadiz Inc.'s proposal goes before the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. But the company's highest hurdles lie ahead. The project faces mounting legal challenges, difficult negotiations with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California over use of the Colorado River Aqueduct, opposition from California's senior U.S. senator and the possibility that it may yet be forced to undergo an exhaustive review under federal environmental law. "I think the biggest obstacle Cadiz is going to have is sitting in Washington, D.C., named Dianne Feinstein," water district board member Brett Barbre said.

Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder strolled the sidelines at his team's training camp like the boss at a company picnic. As floodlights bathed the field one recent night and the sticky summer air cooled, he chatted with coaches and team executives. When star receiver Santana Moss jogged off for some water, Snyder shook his hand. But when the scrimmage heated up, so did Snyder.

Parents scoured children's playrooms and retailers scurried to clear their shelves after manufacturers ordered a series of recalls this summer, saying millions of popular toys may have been made with lead paint. But the risk of lead poisoning is as strong as ever, experts say; it's just that the biggest threat probably isn't in the toy box.

Profit at WellPoint Inc., the largest U.S. health insurer, more than doubled in the second quarter as the company cut costs, added members and raised premiums, the Indianapolis-based firm said Wednesday. The company was created in November when Anthem Inc. bought Thousand Oaks-based WellPoint Health Networks Inc., which operates Blue Cross of California, and took its name. The combined company runs health plans across the country, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield coverage in 13 states.

What does it take to launch a new national magazine? Investors. A distributor. Lots of presold ads. A writer or two. Oh, yes, and a launch party, the kind with a catered buffet, guests to be impressed and napkins and match books with the magazine's name engraved on them. That was the scene Thursday night, when Time Inc. introduced its new Entertainment Weekly, a publication devoted to brief and beyond-brief reviews of movies, TV shows, recordings and books.

For five years now, the would-be developers of Honey Springs have battled environmentalists and area residents over the fate of 2,200 acres six miles southeast of Jamul. The confrontations have taken place before the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, the state Legislature, the Metropolitan Water District and three levels of courts. Remarkably, neither side seems weary of the fight. Back in 1980, when Presenting Inc.

When Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs announced the new price of the iPhone 3G on Monday, the number $199 fell from the top of the screen behind him. It bounced with a satisfying "boing" sound, akin to those old ads on daytime TV: "This set of knives can be yours for only $19.99!" Apple's marketing slogan for the new iPhone, which runs on a faster wireless network, is "twice the speed at half the price." But, as usual, there's a catch. People are starting to do the math and realizing that the new iPhone will actually cost more than the current versions -- but the payments are spread out. It's like an iPhone financing plan, sponsored by AT&T Inc. Yes, the new iPhone, which goes on sale July 11, will cost $200 less than the current version.
