A new controversy erupted around the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano, stemming from an argument as old as the mission walls themselves. A descendant of the Juaneno Indian tribe, which predates the first Spanish settlers and the 213-year-old mission, left a 40-year career at the mission, but not of his own accord, he said. "I didn't retire, I was fired," said Floyd Nieblas, 63, who began his career at the mission selling bird seed. He left last month as its business manager.
