Mailman Art Parra was just trying to help out. Walking his daily mail route in Norwalk, he could not help but notice graffiti blanketing the walls of his neighborhood. It was ugly, Parra thought, and it created a gangland atmosphere that he did not want his children to live in. So after work, Parra got some paint, brushes and a few volunteers and set about cleaning it up. For this civic effort, he expected gratitude.

The city of Norwalk has agreed to pay $225,000 to two city employees who claim they were sexually harassed by their boss, a veteran department head who was fired but then won a City Council seat. Councilman Jesse M. Luera was fired as director of social services in 1992 after city social workers Peggy Jones Flores and Velia Vargas complained that Luera repeatedly made sexual advances, including grabbing their breasts or buttocks and offering to pay for sexual favors.
