This fast-growing Riverside County city of almost 50,000 inhabitants does not fit the traditional definition of a blighted community. New subdivisions and commercial centers are rapidly overtaking farmland, and the downtown is bustling. Residents' per-capita savings amount to almost $40,000, thanks largely to a bountiful population of retirees, drawn to the shadow of Mt. San Jacinto in search of moderate weather, tranquillity and reasonable prices.

A sharply divided school board voted 4 to 3 Tuesday night to teach only state-mandated AIDS health education; the board majority said parents should resume the role of primary sex educators of their children.

Regarding evacuation plans for a catastrophic fire, residents of the isolated, mile-high community of Idyllwild have always offered a confident answer: We're prepared. But only weeks away from the peak of fire season, local factions are struggling to resolve what many describe as a communication breakdown over how best to coordinate disparate evacuation plans that have been drafted by at least 12 mountain camps that cater to thousands of youths, several town organizations and fire authorities.
