The telephone calls can come at all hours: We'll tell your friends at church that you don't pay your debts. We'll turn you in to child protective services for being a bad parent. Take out a loan on your home so you can pay us back. Many people whose outstanding debts have been turned over to collection agencies endure threats, profanity and harassment over the telephone. What they might not know is that they don't have to take it.

It's well documented that, in its heyday from the late 1920s to the '50s, Central Avenue was the center of L.A.'s jazz scene. What's not as well known--"the part that is not told," as Anthony Scott, executive director of the Dunbar Economic Development Corp., says, is that it was also home to some of the city's first black-run businesses, social organizations and churches. This unknown side is celebrated in an exhibit opening today at the landmark Dunbar Hotel.

Donning a hard hat and goggles, Mayor Richard Riordan joined a work crew Thursday in cleaning up the graffiti-marred boyhood home of Ralph J. Bunche, the first African American to win a Nobel Peace Prize. Riordan, who learned about the condition of the home from an article in Sunday's Times, blamed the city's slow-moving bureaucracy for holding up the funding to restore the home.
