By CASSIE MACDUFF Sun Political Editor Beginning Tuesday, it may cost more to use pay telephones in California, said Assemblyman Brett Granlund, R-Yucaipa. Federal deregulation is the reason. California's 6.000 pay phone providers will be able to charge whatever rates they wish, since the state Public Utilities Commission issued a notice complying with the 1996 Telecommunication Act, Granlund wrote in a Q&A to constituents. How much more will it cost? "We don't know yet, because pay phone providers want to keep competitors guessing about their prices," Granlund said. "However, we do know the price may vary depending upon the pay phone provider and location of the pay phone." Directory assistance calls, previously free, will now be charged, but 911 emergency calls still will be free, he said. Granlund Leonard ment agencies. "My office can help set up tours of the Capitol, give you background information on California's history and Legislature, or help you find the bills and laws that are interesting to you," Leonard said.

Desert man held as assault suspect VICTORVILLE A 25-year-old man faces up to a year in jail for allegedly engaging in sexual intercourse with a horse. Brian Courtier of Victorville has pleaded innocent to a misdemeanor charge of sexually assaulting horses at the Mojave Narrows Regional Park, said Sheriff Sgt Barbara Ferguson. He was in custody Friday in the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, with bail set at $7,500. A park caretaker noticed that horses had been taken from a corral, moved around and left in nearby swamplands, Ferguson said. Deputies staked out the corrals on Wednesday night and saw Courtier taking a horse from a pen and leading it toward the swampland. Officers followed Courtier and arrested him after he allegedly sexually assaulted the horse. Edison gives papers to fire investigators VICTORVILLE - Southern California Edison officials have handed over unspecified documents to county fire investigators seeking information on the cause of last year's Calabasas fire.

Rosemead, Thousand Oaks and Westminster, Edison spokesman Steve Conroy said Friday. "The CDF has alleged that the fire was started by arching SCE power lines that came in contact with trees during the high winds," Conroy said. H SMOG PLUS AUTO CAKF.

After police requested the gas station return to normal prices, Hosmanek decided to donate the difference in revenue to the American Red Cross of the Inland Empire. Down the street, the manager of a nearby Arco station expected the event would cut into his morning rush-hour sales. But many of the motorists in the line of cars along Highland Avenue became frustrated with the wait and ended up filling their cars elsewhere. "They said, 'Forget it, I'll just go here,' " said Lues Perez, manager of the Arco station on Highland Avenue and Lincoln Drive. Business was so brisk that the station ran out of regular unleaded gas. Martin Ayala of San Bernardino pulled his mini-van into the Mobil station shortly after the end of the fuel promotion. He wasn't surprised by the response. "Gas is high," said Ayala, 24. "Everybody needs a break." INLAND ROOFINGI All Types of Roofing LOWEST PRICES 15 Years Experience-Lie.
