Families are needed to host foreign exchange high school students from France, Brazil, Estonia and other countries. Placentia resident Mary Rarick, who helps place the students, is seeking volunteers to provide housing and meals for about 30 students. Host families do not receive monetary compensation but are eligible for $50 tax deductions for each month they host the students, she said. The students will stay for three-week, five-month or 10-month study programs.

Since the beginning of this month, tens of thousands of teens across the country have been protesting overcrowded classes, the shortage of teachers, overloaded schedules and old, ill-equipped and unsafe schools. On Thursday, an estimated 500,000 students marched in more than 340 locations throughout France.

All who were listening heard the plea. It was spoken by every veteran who gave a speech or offered a prayer or unveiled a memorial: a plea to the nation from those who fought for it. Disabled Vietnam War veteran George Gentry, speaking at El Toro Memorial Park cemetery, made the plea not only for those who fought the nation's wars, but for the men and women serving today in faraway places like Bosnia and Macedonia as well.

All who were listening heard the plea. It was spoken by every veteran who gave a speech or offered a prayer or unveiled a memorial: a plea to the nation from those who fought for it. "We want them to know why there is a Veterans Day and to learn to respect those who have given their lives and fought for this country," said Dale Sampson, a Vietnam War veteran who lives in Pico Rivera. "We want them to be thankful and carry the pride we have, carry it into the next generation."

As troops are put on alert and military reserves are activated, what possibly could be controversial about building a memorial to honor military veterans? Plans for one in West Hollywood, however, are at the center of a dispute that is triggering claims of a political payoff and calls for a tough new city ethics policy. Construction of such a monument is the dream of City Councilman Sal Guarriello, the lone veteran on West Hollywood's City Council.
