56% higher Gas bills zoom as users fume [Newspaper Article] — Belvedere Citizen / Eastside Journal — 16 January 1980
56% higher Gas bills zoom as users fume By Sheryl Johansen Southern California Gas Company customers upset by their December billing are in for even more bad news on their January bill. The Public Utilities Commission Tuesday approved a rate hike of 1.176 per therm, or about $1.32 a month for the average residential customer. Rates for December were already 56 percent higher than rates for December, 1978. However, without, relatively warm December weather last month the bills would have even been higher. Tom Sanger, spokesman for Southern California Gas, said the average customer paid $22.71 for 112 therms in December, 1978. This December that figure was closer to $3O. The reason, he said, is increased cost of natural gas. 3 INCREASES "The PUC approved three rate increases last year,” he said. "And all the increases went straight into buying more gas, not into profits.” The price of natural gas has increased, he said, because of government deregulation passed in 1978. The action lif...

Judge Munnell will leave court post Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge William A. Munnell, East L.A., announced today that he will not seek re-election in 1980. On the Superior Court Bench since his appointment Oct. 31, 1961, he presently is assigned to a court in the Norwalk Courthouse. Judge Munnell cited as reasons for leaving the “dangerous politicization of California's non-partisan judiciary, the extreme and increasing cost of judicial campaigns, increasing political attacks on the judiciary and the freeze on judicial salaries in a period of runaway inflation.” "California has enjoyed the reputation of having the finest judiciary in the United States, perhaps in the world," declared Judge Munnell. “But now I am concerned that if the politicization of the judiciary continues, the quality of the state’s judges will be severely affected. ’ ’ "If a judge must accept campaign contributions and, similar to a seeker of political office, seek endorsements from political, professi...
Computer typeset operators needed [Newspaper Article] — Belvedere Citizen / Eastside Journal — 16 January 1980
Computer typeset operators needed “We receive an average of five requests for computer typesetting operators every week, and we don’t have enough trainees to fill these positions,” states Joen Mascari, Instructor at East Los Angeles Occupational Center. “No student who has finished the program has had to go out looking for a job. Employers are waiting to hire them. Most students get hired before they complete their training.” Operating an electronic typesetter is a good job option for someone with typing skills or someone willing to team to type while they learn to operate the equipment. Typing is also taught at the Center, so that trainees can leam everything they need during the 8:30 to 3:15 school day or during late afternoon and evening hours. Because there is such a high demand for trained operators, anyone interested in entering the job market can expect to earn $4 to $5 an hour starting wage after two semesters of training. What are some of the skills one should have prior to...
