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
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. The companies had turned down repeated requests to represent An-aheim's interests in the disputes.
The suit, the most expensive municipal case in Orange County history, has cost the city $6.8 million to date.

SCHOOLSFitting in least of worriesCampus violence top pupil concern
By Vik Jolly and Tenny Tatusian

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.

COUNCILMove to oust Zemel fails for lack of support
By Vesta Riggs North County News
The same Anaheim City Council members who voted against removing Glenn Hellyer from the Planning Commission because of a "perception of impropriety" tried to force Commissioner Bob Zemel
to resign for the same reason.
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.
