Robert D. Cummings was 22 when diabetes disabled him, robbing him of sight in one eye and stealing all but a fraction in the other. Cummings, who was a college junior at the time, thought his life was over. Now, 21 years later, Cummings is blind but is sustaining a different kind of vision by dedicating his life to others with physical handicaps.

I would like to enlighten state Sen. John Lewis (R-Orange) and other misinformed public officials and taxpayers about the current situation of Orange County's In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) and the corporation that made a proposal to "corporatize," not privatize, the delivery of service to people with disabilities, including seniors. As Sen. Lewis stated ("Private Aid for the Home-Bound," July 5), National Homecare Systems, a Chicago-based, for-profit company, submitted a proposal to the Orange County Board of Supervisors to take over the management of the IHSS program.

A private company seeking to take over most of a county program that cares for elderly, blind and disabled people in their homes says it can save Orange County millions by cutting back on the time that private service providers spend with the clients. Chicago-based National Homecare Systems says it can save Orange County $4.5 million over three years by stamping out waste in the In-Home Supportive Services program.

When Guadalupe Miranda heard that amnesty would be offered to undocumented immigrants, he saw his chance. "I have a sort of a theory," he said, his eyes disappearing into smiling half moons behind his glasses. "God gives all of us a chance to do something for others. I was waiting for something like this." An immigrant who came from Mexico legally 27 years ago, Miranda nevertheless knew the fear and loneliness of his Santa Ana neighbors, undocumented workers who had left families in Mexico.
