Graham & James, a large California law firm that specializes in international law, was awarded a special license from the U.S. Treasury Department to open an office in Vietnam, a move that the firm believes will boost business at its Newport Beach office. "We see enormous long-term potential for Vietnamese economic growth, in which many of our clients will be participating," said Richard K. Zepfel, a Graham & James partner in charge of the Newport Beach office.

Orange County Great Park designer Ken Smith was hired for his vision. When he looked out at 1,300 acres of runways and abandoned buildings at a former military base in Irvine, he imagined a gathering place that could provide a center to this sprawling county, rivaling New York's Central Park and San Diego's Balboa Park. But after years of designing an ambitious park, for which he and his team were paid millions, it seems increasingly likely that Smith's vision will be pushed aside in favor of a more pragmatic plan.

Citing enormous economic and employment benefits for the state, Gov. Pete Wilson pledged his support for the proposed Disneyland Resort on Wednesday, committing $60 million for two freeway ramps and a massive parking garage. Wilson said the state is getting involved in the Disney venture because it gives "the promise of major employment" and would help the state recover from the recession. "The magnitude of the economic benefits of this project are difficult to overestimate," Wilson said.

Orange County has an opportunity to accomplish something that few, if any, urban areas in the entire nation have been able to achieve--a form of ethnic integration. The county's ethnic mix is changing faster than ever before. The population was once nearly totally Anglo, but today the numbers of Latino and Southeast Asian people are growing faster than the white population.

Many law enforcement leaders correctly support tougher restrictions on guns, and it is disappointing to note that Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona is not one of them. Instead, he has been making good on a campaign promise to grant permits to more people. In campaigning for the job in 1998, Carona said he would be more liberal in granting permission to carry concealed firearms than his predecessor, Brad Gates. So his decision hardly comes as a surprise.

MultiCultural Women Writers of Orange County as a group and as individuals have been working for many years to promote multicultural awareness among us. Through the past two decades, we have had the pleasure of observing the good work of the Human Relations Commission, which has consistently worked for better relations between the dominant Anglo-American and the ethnic minority population in Orange County. It is therefore with great concern that we note the decision of the Orange County Board of Supervisors to no longer fund the work of the Human Relations Commission.
