Voters in seven school districts went to the polls Tuesday to decide the fate of nearly $372 million in bonds for school construction and improvements, while a measure that would have blocked a town square development in Manhattan Beach went down to defeat. In the Hacienda-La Puente Unified School District, a $100-million bond measure, the largest in Tuesday's election, was leading by a 4-1 margin in early returns.

Councilwoman Sally Holguin-Fallon is the target of the latest recall effort in La Puente, making her the fourth of the five council members to face such a challenge. Besides Holguin-Fallon, the other targets are Councilmen Louis Perez, Edward L. Chavez and Joe V. Alderete. A notice of intent to recall La Puente's first councilwoman was filed Thursday by supporters of the three councilmen, who themselves face a recall drive by a group called Skunk Busters for Better Government.

Ask Mayor Max E. Ragland how long he's been on the La Puente City Council, and he has to pause to do some simple arithmetic with a paper and pencil. "Twenty-four years," he says with some surprise. And how many times have his fellow councilmen elected him mayor? "I don't know. It's funny, I haven't kept track of that," he says. "I've been mayor, I think, five times. . . . I've also been vice-mayor several times, but I don't know how many." Ragland, 70, can be forgiven his confusion.
