A room at the East Los Angeles Skills Center is lively with the pounding of hammers and the humming of power tools: the sounds of a dozen young adults, homeless or raised in the foster care system, learning construction skills. A few miles away in Boyle Heights is a run-down building they will eventually refurbish and turn into low-income housing for five families. The youth are involved in "Students at Work," a new program operated by the nonprofit Community Enhancement Corp.

Location. Location. Location. That real-estate mantra, delivered to clients seeking high value and return on their investment, has served the East Los Angeles Classic well. The annual football game between Garfield and Roosevelt high schools grew into one of the best-attended prep athletic events in the nation without straying from the Eastside neighborhoods that made it so prosperous. The series began in 1926.

What does it take to be an overnight sensation? In the case of Los Angeles photographer Anthony Hernandez, more than 30 years of work. He has taken thousands of pictures, participated in dozens of exhibitions and garnered a fair amount of critical praise since the late 1960s, when he first picked up the family box camera and took surprisingly prophetic photos of automobile engine parts strewn around a vacant lot in East Los Angeles. But suddenly, his work seems to be everywhere.

Try on the worn shoes of Tomas and Elisa Aguirre as they walk a mile for groceries or just about any other errand, and you understand why the senior couple looked at a fleet of new county shuttle buses parked outside the East Los Angeles Civic Center on Saturday with giddy smiles. After years of getting by without a car or affordable public transportation in the vast, unincorporated expanse of freeways and modest neighborhoods that make up East L.A., here at last was a ride.
