PAYOUT City settles legal fees suit By Vesta Riggs North County News Anaheim will receive a $5 million settlement this week from five insurance companies as reimbursement for costs incurred during a nine-year conflict with Anaheim Stadium Associates and Golden West Baseball Co., owner of the California Angels. City attorneys filed suit against the insurance carriers in 1987, seeking relief from the $6.8 million spent defending the city in suits related to development of parts of the Anaheim Stadium parking lot.

SEPT. 24. 1992 SCHOOLS Fitting in least of worries Campus violence top pupil concern By Vik Jolly and Tenny Tatusian North County News It used to be, the most terrifying aspect of high school was fitting in and being liked. Not anymore, students say. Now, they make sure they don't make eye contact with somebody they don't know or wear clothes that might be construed for gang allegiance. "You've got to watch where you go nowadays," said Brad Ahrens, 15, a Canyon High School sophomore. "You don't just dress to impress girls but be careful not to make a statement that may seem like you're claiming to belong to a set." His friend Jeff Glende, 17, added, "There're a lot of places we avoid now or are really careful when we're there. And we make sure we don't stare anyone in the eye." With the recent shootings near campuses in central Anaheim, the beginning of school has been marred by unusually frequent violence. Two weeks ago, two youths, one an Anaheim High School dropout and the other a Santa Ana student were both shot in front of Loara High School. Both injuries required hospitalization and arrests were made. Last week. Angel Gonzalez, a 15-year-old Fullerton High School sophomore, was fatally shot on his way home from school.

Councilman Irv Pickler tried to introduce an ordinance on Aug. 25 that would require members of city boards and commissions to resign their posts if they run for council. Councilman Tom Daly supported Pickler's effort but Councilmen William Ehrle and Bob Simpson and Mayor Fred Hunter opposed it. Pickler since has backed down on encouraging Zemel's resignation. He said, however, that he will bring up die issue after the Nov. 3 election. Daly and Ehrle are running for re-election. Pickler said Zemel's position gives him an unfair advantage in raising funds for his City Council campaign find may lead to conflicts with his duties as a planning commissioner. Please see COUNCIL/A3
