Don Chew leaned in close, crinkled his nose and offered a Cheshire smile that threatened to envelop his face. Yes, he said, he is well aware that his grand dream -- a foreign man pioneering badminton, a foreign sport, in a foreign land -- has been preposterous from the start. But, he said, here's the thing: "It's all coming true." Chew's American tale has its roots in his native Thailand. It incorporates faces from Laos, Vietnam, China, Malaysia and Indonesia.

City officials will begin studying streets where school crossing guards stand duty to see if all the guards are needed. The crossing guards became an issue last summer when city engineers found a 1993 state law that relieved cities of the full obligation of providing crossing guards. The city asked the Orange Unified School District to pick up half of the $300,000 annual tab for the guards, but the district trustees refused, saying it had always been the city's job.

When Orange police recently arrested undocumented day laborers in a Home Depot parking lot, the incident touched off the usual reprimands and praises from different sides of the illegal immigration debate.

The answer is a mix of economic realities, ignorance and good old American self-reliance.
