The San Diego Republican Hispanic Assembly will boycott a GOP meeting today on Latino issues with Vice President George Bush's son Jeb. The chairman of the 75-member group said Tuesday that the boycott is to protest organizers' "inexcusable mistake" of excluding Latinos from the planning of the meeting. "To not have Hispanics involved in putting together an Hispanic event is ridiculous," said Nicholas Britto, who is also president of the Cuban-American Political Assn.

The 31-year-old former Jesuit seminarian will succeed former Councilman Bob Filner, who was elected to the U.S.

Here is Robert H. Brom, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of San Diego: To a classroom of first-, second- and third-graders at the St. Therese Academy in Del Cerro, he's explaining the significance of his formal wardrobe. "Sometimes I feel like a great big billboard," he says, adorned in the fancy black-and-red garments that reflect his clerical ranking.

Two San Diego police officers were arrested Thursday and charged with kidnaping and robbing three Latino illegal aliens while patrolling the downtown area in two separate incidents last year. Officers Lloyd J. Hoff Jr. and Richard P. Schaaf later appeared in San Diego Municipal Court where, dressed in dark blue jail garb, they entered not-guilty pleas to five felony counts each of kidnaping, kidnaping for robbery, and robbery. If convicted, each could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Five San Diego police units recently responded to a report of two "suspicious black males" loitering outside a Hillcrest liquor store. As the officers grabbed their batons and approached the sidewalk, one of the men shouted: "Look at this! Five cops coming after two black guys walking down the street. Don't you have anything better to do than harass niggers? . . . Go ahead. Beat us up. Just like Sagon Penn."

Gov. George Deukmejian is ignoring a talented pool of women and minority lawyers as he moves to fill San Diego County judgeships mainly with lawyers whose backgrounds mirror his own, say many local attorneys and judges familiar with the judiciary.
