WEST HILLS

City offers reward in campus fire-bomb

A $50,000 reward was offered Friday by the Los Angeles City Council for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever was responsible for a Molotov cocktail attack at the Bernard Milken Jewish Community Campus in West Hills.

The fire-bombing, which is being investigated as a hate crime, occurred about 2 a.m. Monday at 22622 Vanowen St. The building was not damaged and there were no injuries.

"Anyone who is going to attack someone because of their race or religion (doesn't) belong in our society, and we're taking a very aggressive action with the investigation," said Councilman Dennis Zine, who sponsored the reward.

School celebrates completion of park

Cleveland High School will mark the end of a two-year project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:30 a.m. March 6.

Students and school officials will celebrate a park created from a previously unused area of the campus at 8140 Vanalden Ave. The project took two $10,000 Los Angeles city beautification grants and more than $35,000 -- most of it in student volunteer work -- in matching funds.

BURBANK

Villaraigosa's ex-lover co-hosting radio show

Former TV reporter Mirthala Salinas, who gained unwanted publicity last year when she was linked romantically to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa -- contributing to the breakup of his marriage -- announced Friday her return to journalism as a co-host on Spanish-language radio.

Salinas joins radio journalist Gerardo Lorenz on W Radio 690-AM's Hoy por Hoy morning show. She began her new job Monday.

"I'm very happy today to announce my return to journalism," Salinas said at a morning news conference in Burbank. "This is what I have done my whole life and what I want to continue to do."

Salinas was a reporter and anchorwoman at KVEA-TV Channel 52 last year when it was disclosed that she and the mayor were romantically involved, and that she had been reporting on Villaraigosa's marital problems without disclosing her role.

SAN FERNANDO

City paying $750,000 to settle permit suit

The city has agreed to pay $750,000 to settle developer Severyn Aszkenazy's complaint that he was illegally denied liquor permits for a restaurant project.

The agreement was filed Thursday, just days after a trial began, to determine what penalty the city should face for having denied the permit. The trial was suspended as the two sides hammered out a deal.

"You're never happy to pay out," said San Fernando City Administrator Jose Pulido. "We're just looking forward to moving on and focusing in on what we need to get done as a city."

As part of the settlement, Aszkenazy agreed to withdraw his lawsuit, according to the agreement. Each side will pay its own legal costs.
