At 49, Harbir (Bill) Narang has spent much of his life contemplating what it means to be old. As a child in India, he grew up in a house with three generations under one roof, in a culture that reveres its elderly. As a grown son, Narang and his wife share their home with his mother. And as administrator of Seal Beach Leisure World for the past 10 years, he makes his livelihood by managing the daily affairs of residents who on average are 30 years his senior.

The battle between a determined cadre of Leisure World residents and managers of their Seal Beach retirement community escalated Friday after management lawyers vowed to sue to keep financial records secret. Seven residents -- who are members of the nonprofit foundation that runs Leisure World -- went to small-claims court in June to compel the foundation to open its books, saying that because they pay monthly dues, they have the right to inspect the books.

The group of activists one might label the Leisure World Eight raised their record to two for two last week.

It was the second such ruling in less than three months.

Smiling senior citizens grace the sales brochures for Leisure World in Seal Beach. They're bicycling, painting, relaxing in the 9,000-resident retirement community described as "the best world of all!" -- a veritable paradise for seniors.

Dogs are allowed inside Leisure World condominiums but are banned from the more than 500 acres of common ground in the sprawling development.
