In a sense, Cesar Chavez brought together the eight artists who call themselves Artino. On April 1, they ran into each other in a park showing their work as part of the city of San Fernando's annual celebration of Chavez, champion of farm workers.

The argument at home plate was getting heated, too heated, perhaps, for 9 on a Saturday morning. Joe Bravo, the Lawndale coach and sponsor of a slow-pitch softball team bearing his name, maintained that the opposing team, the Braves, had violated three rules on a play in the top of the fifth inning.
