The L.A. County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved an ordinance imposing civil penalties against graffiti taggers and their parents, including the possible imposition of property liens to ensure repayment of court ordered restitution. The ordinance grew out of a six-month pilot program conducted in Pico Rivera, which was sparked by the murder of a grandmother when she tried to stop taggers near her home. The county joined with the city of Pico Rivera for a campaign which in six months resulted in the arrest of 168 taggers responsible for a total of $368,000 in damages.

Alex Coolman CITY HALL -- Plans to contract with a Pico Rivera firm to handle the city's recycling are on hold after the president of a rival company charged that the city had not fairly evaluated bids for the work. David Kim, a spokesman for Bestway Recycling Company Inc. of Los Angeles, told the City Council on Tuesday that the Pico Rivera company, Quality Paper Fibers, had not submitted an appropriate bid for handling Glendale's recycling. City officials had been excited about the possibility of signing a contract with Quality Paper Fibers, a deal that was expected to turn an expensive recycling program into one that would generate almost $700,000 of annual revenue.

PICO RIVERA — At the halfway point of the season, there is no need to complain. For starters, the St. Francis High football team has already eclipsed its win total from a year ago. Even better for the Golden Knights, they remain undefeated. St. Francis received a pair of touchdown receptions from wide receiver Malik Speed on Friday to pick up a 45-7 nonleague victory against El Rancho. The Golden Knights (5-0) led throughout the contest against a tattered El Rancho team that dropped to 2-3. St. Francis, ranked fifth in the CIF Southern Section Western Division, scored on all four of its first-quarter possessions.
