The Rev. E.V. Hill, a Baptist minister tapped by Mayor Richard Riordan as a special adviser for South-Central Los Angeles, is used to singing a loud and contrary solo as other African-American leaders harmonize in chorus. Known for his stirring sermons and extensive outreach programs, Hill is a gung-ho Republican in solidly Democratic turf--and he would have it no other way. The iconoclastic conservative has railed against homosexuality and abortion at the pulpit.

The Rev. E. V. Hill, pastor of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in South-Central Los Angeles, led community leaders Wednesday in kicking off a campaign for a "no-killing" Easter weekend. Standing in front of an empty coffin, Hill lamented, "We have too many of these being sold in our community."

Now is not the time for the Board of Supervisors to rip off funding for Community Youth Gang Services ("Ganging Up Against Hope," editorial, June 16). Whatever success there has been in Los Angeles to turn away gang members from their social predation is due primarily to CYGS's intervention. The board's proposal also would impede state efforts to fund CYGS expansion to other areas in the county. As part of its budget deliberations, the Legislature is considering my request to reallocate $500,000 from the asset forfeiture distribution fund to assist CYGS in this expansion.
