Federal authorities have charged six men with smuggling women and girls from Mexico and forcing them to work as prostitutes among the thick reeds of a riverbank in northern San Diego County. The men, arraigned Thursday, were named in a federal complaint in U.S. District Court alleging that they recruited customers at an Oceanside swap meet and took them to a brush-choked area along the San Luis Rey River for sexual encounters with the young women, some of whom were minors.

A onetime Santa Ana gang member who escaped juvenile hall while awaiting sentencing for a violent drive-by shooting was captured Wednesday after eluding authorities for 20 years. Baldomero Johnny Diaz, 36, allegedly dodged the police by assuming new identifies and mutilating his fingertips so his prints couldn't be traced. Authorities said Diaz avoided detection even though he was arrested twice during his alleged run from the law.

National City auto dealer Tony McCune arranged for as much as $20,000 to be paid to a San Diego woman who fled to the Philippines after she was charged with running a prostitution ring out of a Linda Vista condominium, according to court documents made available Tuesday. The alleged madam, Karen L. Wilkening, is quoted in the documents as saying in a tape-recorded telephone conversation with an unidentified police informant that she received $20,000 from McCune in two installments and that McCune still owes her $5,000.

Former San Diego County Supervisor Paul Eckert was arrested Friday on suspicion of soliciting prostitution, a San Diego police spokesman said Sunday. Eckert, whose political reputation was damaged in 1983 when he revealed that he spent a night bar-hopping with two women, one of whom was later implicated in a prostitution ring, was arrested after allegedly soliciting a plainclothes female police officer near El Cajon Boulevard and Dawson Street, according to police spokesman Bill Robinson.

In a nondescript two-story, white stucco house on 70th Street, girls who have worked as prostitutes in San Diego will be taught independent living skills in an attempt to change their lives. The house is the beginning of an extensive program, launched by the St. Vincent De Paul Center, to give the city's teen-age prostitutes a chance to start over.

The young girl who called herself Starlet was trying hard to look enticing to the parade of men who passed her on the street. A slinky, white dress accented the slight curves of her slender figure and a showy string of imitation pearls dangled from her neck. Any pretense of youthful innocence was shattered by the tattoo on her arm. In garish letters it said SEX. There was nothing unusual about her to police.

In Encinitas, residents are being asked to supply sand for the beach. In Oakland, they are being urged to boost teachers' salaries -- over the teachers' objections. In San Francisco, voters might legalize prostitution. In San Diego, they may approve construction of a huge concrete deck for a football stadium or a convention center -- or something -- four stories above a busy shipping terminal.
