Rose Hernandez Espinoza's election defeat in the Proposition 187 tidal wave may have been a blessing in disguise. Espinoza, who last week lost her bid for a City Council seat, is stepping up the volunteer work she loves with a passion: providing tutoring services to needy children. Known for her 3-year-old after-school garage tutoring program, Espinoza said the service will be in greater demand should Proposition 187 be upheld in the courts.

Councilman James H. Flora said Wednesday that he will not run for reelection in November. "I've been doing things for the city for the last 26 years," Flora said. "I think it's time for someone else to have a chance." Flora, 70, was first elected to the City Council in 1984. He was reelected in 1988 and 1992 and served as mayor twice. Before he became a councilman, Flora served as a La Habra planning commissioner for nearly 14 years. "That adds up to a lot of years," Flora said.

A City Council candidate has moved to La Mirada, forcing him to abandon his campaign and leaving the race for two at-large seats to two incumbents and one challenger. Norman P. Eneim, a machine shop foreman, said he decided to end his bid because of a contractual commitment to buy a home in La Mirada. "I wish I could have run," he said Tuesday. "I'm a native La Habran, and I was a little brokenhearted to leave."

City Council term limits, a homeless shelter, traffic noise and budget problems are issues confronting the dozen candidates seeking three seats on the City Council this November. Five candidates support term limits, saying they want an end to professional politicians. The only problem is that term limits may not be legal.
