Until last June, a crusader roamed the streets of East Los Angeles. Dressed as a Los Angeles police officer, he would stop men he apparently believed were Latino gang members, sometimes at gunpoint. At times, as authorities tell it, he would drive them into rival gang turf, where he would drop them off and speed away. He was a one-man vigilante squad, the self-appointed duke of crime suppression. On the streets he came to be known by his very own moniker: "John Wayne."

As elections approach for four of its seven seats, the Los Angeles Unified School District board can claim bragging rights to some significant changes since Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa got involved several years ago. Before he became mayor, the board seemed frozen into inaction whenever the teachers union protested any reform, such as new charter schools. But the mayor-supported majority of the last few years has proved more agile at approving charters, which often provide a better education to students who otherwise would be forced to attend underperforming neighborhood schools.

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, a civil rights group partly founded by Martin Luther King Jr., has threatened to fire the president of its Los Angeles chapter because he supports same-sex marriage. The Rev. Eric P. Lee, president of the local SCLC chapter for two years, became an outspoken advocate of same-sex marriage during the recent campaign against Proposition 8, an amendment to the state Constitution that banned such unions.

A man crossing a Laguna Beach street walked into the path of a moving van over the weekend and was killed. Police did not release the name of the man, a native of India working in California, pending notification of relatives. The accident occurred about 6:15 p.m. Saturday in the 900 block of Laguna Canyon Road, where the victim and two friends were crossing the street, said Sgt. Eric Lee, a police spokesman. The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk and was at fault, Lee said.

A small landslide caused by a broken irrigation pipe forced the temporary evacuation of three homes Monday about five miles north of the Bluebird Canyon area of Laguna Beach, authorities said. It was in Bluebird Canyon in June that 17 homes were destroyed by a massive slide that injured five people. Officers were called about 3:15 p.m. Monday to Canyon Acres Drive when land behind some of the hillside homes began to move, said Sgt. Eric Lee of the Laguna Beach Police Department.

For more than three quarters, San Fernando High waited for a big play that never came. The Tigers (1-2) held Crenshaw to just one touchdown over three quarters, but couldn't muster any consistency on offense in losing a 19-6 nonleague decision Friday at San Fernando. Crenshaw (3-0) scored on its first drive of the game and then picked up two long scores in the fourth quarter. San Fernando Coach Tom Hernandez bemoaned his team's lack of offensive firepower.
