On the race track, California's horse trainers take a back seat to no one. For the last eight years, three California- based trainers--Laz Barrera, Charlie Whittingham and Wayne Lukas--have led the nation in purses won. Lukas broke Whittingham's record last year, then this year broke his own record, becoming the first trainer to go over the $6-million mark. In the 1970s, Whittingham led the country for four straight years and since then has added three more titles.

The true agenda for those seeking driver's licenses for illegal aliens is coming clear (April 9). Despite all their arguments that they only want illegal aliens to be able to legally drive in California, advocates now oppose any indicator on a legal driver's license that the bearer is residing in the country illegally. Obviously, they want the state to join in their conspiracy to thwart federal laws against illegal immigration and the hiring of illegal immigrants and could not care less about whether illegal aliens are legally driving in the state.

The estimates were made from an analysis of surveys, U.S. Census statistics and annual reports from the U.S.

Jonathan Freedman's Column Left, "Save Our State? It's More Like Spite Our State" (July 19), won't fool California voters. The question the Save Our State initiative poses is crystal-clear: Should illegal aliens receive the same package of taxpayer-funded government benefits as legal immigrants and U.S. citizens? The answer is no. We can no longer afford to offer free housing, cash, education, Medicaid (except emergency medical services) and scores of other programs to anyone who manages to cross our border illegally.
