For Maria Torres, home is a cluttered one-bedroom apartment she shares with her husband, their 2-year-old son and another couple. Too often, home also is the sound of gunshots. Depending on the time of night, they could be mistaken for the summer's daily dose of fireworks from nearby Disneyland. Residents call Anaheim's Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood "Tijuanita" (Little Tijuana). Police call it their own Vietnam in the war against crime because their efforts seem to bring no lasting victories.

The former Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood, once one of Anaheim's most crime-ridden, rundown communities, is flaunting its $54-million make-over these days, complete with a new name. Decrepit, overcrowded apartments have given way to gated streets with new buildings, play lots and a child-care center. Residents of the old Jeffrey-Lynne were given first choice at moving into the new Hermosa Village, with no increase in their rents for two years.

Dozens of families in Anaheim's blighted Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood will receive notices within a week requiring them to move starting within a month so the area can be rehabilitated. Over the next two years, at least 233 families in the community, just west of Disneyland, must move so that many of the neighborhood's run-down studios and apartments can be renovated. City officials hope the improvements will help reduce crime and crowding.

In a controversial vote before a packed audience, the Anaheim City Council authorized housing officials Tuesday night to seek public funds to help buy out landlords and rebuild the blighted Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood. Housing authorities praised the council's 3-2 vote for what is expected to be a $55-million project as one the city's biggest commitments yet to provide quality, affordable apartments to area residents.

Children living in the Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood soon will get some help with their homework, thanks to nearly $10,000 in federal grant money. The $9,470 will be used to operate a Homework Center Monday through Thursday after school and early evenings at the Jeffrey-Lynne Community Center. The community center opened nearly a decade ago in the low-income neighborhood near Disneyland.

Police swept through the troubled Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood at dawn Friday, arresting nine suspected gang members in connection with three slayings and other attacks in the last two years. About 90 police officers from Anaheim, Fullerton, Placentia and Orange, along with investigators from the Orange County district attorney's office and the county probation departments, spread through the neighborhood and elsewhere beginning at 7 a.m.

After a public hearing in which overwhelming support was voiced for a plan to build a play area in the Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood, the City Council this week unanimously approved the project's final stage. Residents of the area, near Disneyland, have long supported converting Audre Drive to a closed-off play area for children in the neighborhood's apartment complexes, but residents living in the adjoining neighborhood recently expressed concern about the plan.

A long-awaited play area for children who live in the Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood near Disneyland will be dedicated today by residents and community leaders who worked on the project. Called Audre Plaza, the park includes two basketball half-courts, tetherball courts, swings, four-square courts and hopscotch areas. Residents have been lobbying for the play area for about three years. The city used $50,000 in federal funds to create the park, which involved closing Audre Drive.

The first phase of a $55.9-million revitalization plan for Anaheim's troubled Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood, including the purchase of 29 buildings and a relocation plan for about 1,700 residents, won 3-1 City Council approval Tuesday. Councilman Tom Tait, the lone dissenter, said, "I voted against the concept when it first came up, and I'm going to vote against it now. A plan that removes people from their homes is wrong."

Anaheim's troubled Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood stands in the shadow of Disneyland as a discouraging counterpoint to "The Happiest Place on Earth." Its persistent crime and drug dealing have challenged even the most progressive law enforcement strategies. While community policing efforts paid off in reduced crime rates in the middle part of the decade, police report that crimes have rebounded.

Police are once again waging a battle to wipe out gangs and drugs in the Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood, Anaheim's most dangerous. Called "Tijuanita" by residents, it reminds police of somewhere else. "It's like our Vietnam," said Joe Vargas, the department's public information officer. "We win the battles but lose the war." Indeed, the city's longest-running single-neighborhood campaign provides a sober lesson in the complexities and limitations of community policing.

An accident involving an Anaheim police car that struck twins has angered some residents of the troubled Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood, where police have stepped up enforcement in recent months to combat problems ranging from drugs to gang violence. The 8-year-old twins--Sandra and Juan Flores--were not seriously injured when the cruiser hit them Sunday in an alley between Jeffrey and Michelle drives. Police say the officer was not speeding and that an ambulance was called to the scene immediately.

Anaheim officials are proposing an innovative, yet unscientific, approach to cracking down on crime and drug problems in a neighborhood next to Disneyland: parking tickets. And while that may seem lightweight action, police swear it works. Officials are considering a one-year pilot program that would ban parking on certain streets within the Jeffrey-Lynne community, a neighborhood of 714 apartment units and an estimated 5,000 to 7,000 residents.
