As David Benavides adjusted the welcome sign on the front door Friday, nine of Emily Benavides' second-grade students stopped by to visit their teacher at the couple's new home. "Buying this home was all about location," Emily Benavides said of the three-bedroom 1954 stucco house on Daisy Avenue South in Santa Ana. "It is just a location nobody else wants."

The stacks of maps and aerial photographs on the table trace the course of the Rio de las Gallinas and its acequias--the winding irrigation ditches that divert water from the river and carry it to the fields and pastures that line its banks. David Benavides picks up one of the glossy black-and-white enlargements and peers at it, turning it first one way and then another. He's having trouble reading the landscape as it appears from 10,000 feet.

The administrator credited with steering Santa Ana away from potential bankruptcy has been abruptly fired, exposing a deepening fissure among political leaders in Orange County's second-largest city. City Manager Paul Walters, who had been the city's longtime police chief before being asked to resolve a $35-million budget shortfall, was seen as an ally of Santa Ana's longtime mayor, Miguel Pulido. But Pulido's power in the town has eroded and he is increasing isolated by council colleagues.

The ballot measure would for the first time cap how long a person can serve as mayor. It would also increase the time council members can serve by four years -- to 12 years.

Los Angeles County voters were close to approving a three-decade extension of a transportation sales tax Tuesday night, and a health measure requiring adult film actors to wear condoms was way ahead in early returns.
