As the insults flew and the protest reached a boil, Joseph Turner couldn't help but smile. The 29-year-old head of the upstart Save Our State organization had come to Baldwin Park to pick a fight over illegal immigration. He had led a band of like-minded souls into the heart of the city to protest public art they deemed "seditious and anti-American."

Re "Law Aimed at Migrants Faces Hurdle," June 27 I should like to remind Armando Navarro of the National Alliance for Human Rights that the racism of which he accuses Joseph Turner comes in many shades and colors. Does he really expect me to believe that the alliance would so fervently oppose this ballot measure if the constituency it applied to was not almost exclusively Latino? The agenda of Navarro and such groups as the alliance is all too clear. RICK LIVINGOOD Simi Valley

A painting of the Grand Canal in Venice by British artist Joseph Turner fetched a world record price for English watercolors at an auction Monday, Phillips auctioneers announced. The watercolor, "The Grand Canal With Santa Maria Della Salute," was bought for $720,000 by West German industrialist Hermann Schnabel, who bid by telephone. The painting belonged to the descendants of Turner's agent, Thomas Griffith, and had been on loan to the British Museum since 1972.

Supporters of an initiative that would crack down on illegal immigrants will have until July 9 to collect more than 2,500 additional signatures for a petition to place it on the ballot, the city clerk said Wednesday. The proposal, written by anti-illegal immigrant activist Joseph Turner, was expected to go before voters until a San Bernardino County Superior Court judge ruled Monday that the formula the city used to determine the number of signatures Turner needed was flawed.

Re "Protest Over Art Forces Police to Draw the Line," May 15: Joseph Turner should pick his fights more carefully. Targeting the Baldwin Park Metrolink public artwork makes a laughingstock of him and his group, Save Our State. Failing to understand the origin of the quote he labels seditious, he opens himself to ridicule and being labeled a racist. His comments and attitude make me wonder if the protest against the arch wasn't really just a publicity stunt. This group would be better served if Turner were to direct his attention to the substantive issues surrounding illegal immigration.

A controversial day laborer center opened outside a Home Depot store in Burbank on Thursday, despite accusations that the city was encouraging illegal immigration by arranging for construction of the center. About 25 workers showed up at the hiring hall Thursday morning. There were no protests, but Save Our State founder Joseph Turner said there would probably be some activists at the site Saturday. His Ventura County-based group opposes illegal immigration.

For 12 years, public artwork near the Baldwin Park Metrolink station never caused a stir. But when a Ventura-based group that opposes illegal immigration got wind of what was inscribed on the artwork this month, they organized a protest that garnered attention when it was announced on the "John & Ken Show" on KFI-AM (640). By Saturday, activists on both sides of the immigration issue mobilized, resulting in a sometimes chaotic confrontation in the San Gabriel Valley community.
