Each morning before Robert Delgado left for school, he made his bed and kissed his parents goodby. When he came home, he cleaned the kitchen and bathroom before setting rice on the stove for the family's dinner. A junior at Leuzinger High School before he was killed earlier this month in a drive-by shooting, Robert had decent grades and teachers spoke well of him. By all accounts he was extremely close to his parents, who came to Gardena from the Philippines in the mid-1980s.

In the backyard of Tess Domingo's home in Walnut, men and women gathered this week to dance the turumba. Though it rolls off the tongue like a rumba, the traditional Filipino dance feels less like a party and more like a prayer. On a recent rehearsal night, the turumba dancers held statues of the Virgin Mary with both hands and lifted them up to the heavens, waving them from side to side.

A Pomona hospital's "no Tagalog" rule did not discriminate against Filipino nurses because the policy was adopted to improve employee morale and job performance, a federal judge ruled this week. But Judge Edward Rafeedie ruled that the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center did violate the civil rights of a Filipina nurse who refused to obey the language rule and filed a discrimination lawsuit in 1989.
