Sheriff's deputies increased patrols around the Monarch Beach home of Lou and Juditha Brown on Thursday after at least three telephone death threats were made against the family, authorities said. Threats also were reported to the Black Orange magazine, according to county Human Relations Commission officials.

Hate crimes in Orange County dropped 21% last year, including attacks by skinhead and white supremacist groups, the Orange County Human Relations Commission announced Thursday. "I think it's an indication that communities are not accepting this kind of behavior and are becoming more active, and people are reporting these kinds of crimes," commission Chairman William Wood said. The commission documented 145 "hate crimes and incidents" in 1997, compared with 183 the year before.
