Back in the protest-laden 1960s, Hazard Park was a symbol of how local activists and environmentalists could beat City Hall. For seven years, they vigorously opposed construction of a veterans hospital in the park, and eventually won. When the city finally threw in the towel in 1969 in the face of protesters who said the Eastside needed its parks, opponents such as environmentalist Alexander Man rejoiced. "The city thought it was a fait accompli," Man recalled recently, "but it wasn't."

It's almost as complicated as the Anna Nicole Smith situation and it involves another deceased Hollywood star -- the late horse Mister Ed, star of the 1960s sitcom of the same name. Homebuilder Todd Carroll, who owns the Tahlequah, Okla., site where some say Ed is buried, has built a 1,000-pound granite monument to the horse. And now he wants to cash in on the creature's fame and build a subdivision on the 16-acre site with the entrance going past the monument.

A catering truck is dispensing soda pop and tacos behind home plate. A young boy is making his way through the stands, raffling off a bottle of brandy. Under the trees on the hill in right field, a family is resting on a blanket. It's the sixth inning of a muni-league baseball game at Hazard Park in Boyle Heights. Suddenly, the serenity is broken momentarily by the commotion on the field. The team at bat is accusing the opposing pitcher of throwing spitballs.

Sal Castro sat in his book-lined den, reduced to writing on a whiteboard to fight what could be his last political battle. Hours earlier, the "usually glib and gregarious" teacher and activist, as he describes himself, had been released from St. Vincent Medical Center with a serious illness that made it difficult for him to speak. But Castro insisted on meeting with me to express his frustration with President Obama. Since 2009, Castro has been trying to get the president, first lady or Vice President Joe Biden to come to Boyle Heights to honor the students of the Eastside walkouts of 1968.

After operating 23 years in a now-cramped building on Camino Del Rio South, the California Highway Patrol's border division, which covers nearly four southern counties, will move to new headquarters in Kearny Mesa.

"It's going to be a staid-looking structure.
