The Los Angeles Board of Education runoff race for the 5th District has turned expensive and nasty with two-term incumbent David Tokofsky and challenger Nellie Rios-Parra raising a total of more than $1 million for phone banks, attack mailers and other campaign expenses. The seat -- which represents mostly Latino communities such as South Gate and East Los Angeles, and such liberal bastions as Silver Lake and Los Feliz -- is key to the political direction of the seven-member board.

Moffett flew to Washington recently for a final round of interviews. The results will be announced at the American Assn. of School Administrators national convention next month.

Four of seven seats on the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education are before voters in the March 4 primary. The Times endorses the incumbents in these races because of their modest success over four years in improving the schools for their 750,000 students and because their challengers are weak. District 1: Genethia Hudley-Hayes In her first term, Genethia Hudley-Hayes led the board's clumsy ouster of former Supt. Ruben Zacarias and helped stimulate construction of new schools.

Even as the brutal math of the state budget crisis has been little more than a distant rumble to many Californians, parents in some wealthy and well-organized school districts have been shaken from their inattention, as teachers, PTAs and their own kids have sent home word that popular school programs are on the chopping block.

The people of Lennox can easily list what they don't have: a full-time medical clinic, a city hall, a high school for the majority of their teenagers and streets free of gang violence. Living next to the Los Angeles International Airport landing strips, they don't have much peace and quiet either. Airplanes fly so low over Lennox that one elementary school was built partly underground a decade ago to reduce the noise.

A Manhattan Beach adult soccer league coach donated $600 worth of equipment to students in the Lennox School District on Thursday as a tribute to one of her players who died in a car crash last spring. Danielle Mosher, 18, was an avid soccer fan, and her coach, Linda Finn-Valentine, thought that the best way to keep her memory alive was to support youth soccer players in the hope that they will grow to love soccer as much as Mosher did.
