Eloise Gomez Reyes' frustration seemed to leap off the pages of her recent complaint letter to the head of the California Democratic Party. She described how she had tried repeatedly to address local party clubs about her candidacy for a hotly contested congressional seat in the Inland Empire, only to learn four of those organizations had endorsed a rival, Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar. The backing, announced by the Aguilar campaign, "suggests that information needed to participate fully in the Democratic Club endorsement process has intentionally been withheld" from other candidates, Reyes, a Colton attorney and first-time candidate, said in her letter.

The quake was felt in the Ontario area as well as in San Bernardino, Fontana and Riverside, 50 miles east of Los Angeles. "We thought someone had hit the building. We only got about two or three calls on it," said dispatcher Teresa Paniagua of the Fontana Police Department. None of the callers reported injuries or damage, she said.

The Inland Empire, plagued by rising joblessness and soaring real estate foreclosures, can expect little relief in 1994, economists at Chapman University said Thursday. Neighboring counties will log a year of modest recovery and slight employment gains. But Riverside and San Bernardino counties are likely to see a second year of job losses as employers pare about 2,000 positions from their payrolls, said Esmael Adibi, director of the university's Center for Economic Research.

Jim Lytle gunned his silver BMW past the boarded-up model homes and the faded red flags of an abandoned sales office, then steered into a grid of empty streets and yellowed grass. Millions of dollars were spent to turn farmland into housing tracts. Lots were graded, roads were paved, sewers installed. The houses? They will come, Lytle promises, right here on these acres and acres of weed-strewn fields. "This is a broken subdivision, which is obvious by looking at the ground," said Lytle, whose real estate investment firm has been snapping up land in Winchester and throughout Riverside County.
