NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Dreamworks Animation employees were allowed back to work Wednesday more than two hours after a suspicious package turned out to be a gift from overseas, police said. Bomb investigators opened the package and discovered a gift intended for someone at the studio, Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. “It was not a bomb,” he said. “It was not a practical joke.” Soon after discovering the package was not a threat, about 40 Dreamworks employees who had to stand outside in the rain were allowed to enter the building on Flower Street and Grandview Avenue.

The Foothill (210) Freeway was briefly shut down Monday evening as authorities investigated a package left on a La Cresenta overpass.   The freeway was shut down in both directions for approximately 10 minutes, snarling traffic for miles as Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies investigated a briefcase on the Rosemont Avenue bridge. No homes were evacuated, though Rosemont Avenue, between Altura and Mayfield avenues, was also shut down. A bomb squad robot normally experienced a malfunction, said Lt. Angela Shepard, so deputies put on protective gear to check out the package.

Jim Brown All labor contract negotiations are eventually resolved. Some take longer than others, depending on the issues, available resources, the actual willingness of each party to reach agreement, and the ability to compromise or find creative solutions that meet the fundamental interests of each party.

While all parties have agreed that revisions to the bylaws were necessary and a step in the right direction, a vocal minority has expressed disagreement with a few provisions in the proposed bylaws. It should be pointed out that the discussion has focused on a small portion of the bylaws, with a vast majority of the items being agreed to by consensus.

This odd (but pleasantly low-priced) new release might be called "Jackie Chan's Most Uncharacteristic Hits. " Both showcase Jackie in almost totally non-comic contexts. By definition then, these are not in the league of the "Police Story," "Project A" or "Drunken Master" films. "Crime Story" (1993) is handily the better. While the tone is dark and serious - this is the straightest dramatic role of Chan's career - there are a few of his trademark fight scenes. And Kirk Wong ("The Big Hit," "Organized Crime and Triad Bureau")
