According to some, the race to replace Louis Caldera in the 46th Assembly District has been a frenzied, sometimes muddy sprint leading up to next Tuesday's special election. "I was a long-distance runner when I was a kid, but I've been sprinting since October," says Democratic candidate Gil Cedillo, acknowledging that the nine candidates had an unusually short time to campaign.

Proud as we are of all Medal of Honor awardees, including Marine Pfc. Eugene A. Obregon, Roberto N. Galvan's statement (letter, May 31) that Hispanic Americans have earned more medals of honor, 41, than any other ethnic group is incorrect. What is correct is Hispanic Americans earned more medals of honor during World War II than any other ethnic group. African Americans earned more medals of honor than any other ethnic group, 77; 16 in the Civil War, 17 on the western frontier, eight at sea between the Civil and Spanish-American wars, six in the Spanish-American War, one in World War I, seven in World War II, two in the Korean War and 20 in the Vietnam War. An Asian American infantry battalion was the most decorated unit in World War II. DAVID K. CARLISLE Los Angeles

Thank you for featuring the story of Marine Pfc. Eugene A. Obregon in "A Day to Honor Southland Veterans" (May 26). It is about time for the people of this state to acknowledge the exemplary courage and dedication of heroes like Obregon, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country in spite of its poor treatment of Latinos back home. As a veteran of the U.S. Army and the son of a Mexican American veteran who served in Korea, I am extremely proud of the fact that Hispanic Americans have earned an impressive 41 congressional medals of honor (more than any other ethnic group)

It's one of those insider things, literally--inside the Beltway and inside the perimeter. Some years ago, the U.S. Department of Transportation set up "the perimeter," an invisible zone to protect little National Airport, now called Reagan National, from being overburdened by air traffic. No nonstop flights beyond somewhere in Colorado could fly in and out of the airport. That was large, but not large enough.

In his candidate profile of Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante (Capitol Journal, Aug. 25), George Skelton captured something unique that seems to have eluded Republicans and the media: Bustamante is a tangible, larger-than-life symbol of Latino empowerment and the American dream. Arnold Schwarzenegger talks a lot about education and claims to love immigrants (as long as they are documented), but the Terminator will never be able to conquer the hearts and minds of Latino schoolchildren with his Hollywood antics and empty rhetoric.

More than 20 years ago, Armando Sanchez dropped out of Claremont Men's College because he didn't have the $2,000 he needed to finish his junior year. "I did the only thing I thought I could do," he said. "I had no other options." But Sanchez didn't give up. Eager to get back to school, he looked for alternatives. "But I was too embarrassed to go back to Claremont," he said, "so I went to (Cal State) Long Beach instead."

A concerted campaign effort by organized labor and others that targeted newly enfranchized Latino voters helped boost union organizer Gil Cedillo to an upset primary victory in Tuesday's 46th Assembly District special election, political observers said Wednesday. Cedillo outpolled Los Angeles school board member and fellow Democrat Vickie Castro by a 2-1 margin to win his party's nomination for the Jan. 13 runoff election.

Saying he lacks the time and money to run a campaign and that he fears his candidacy could divide the city, Los Angeles City Councilman Nate Holden announced Monday that he has reluctantly decided not to enter the race for mayor. But Holden, an outspoken City Hall maverick who ran unsuccessfully in the last two mayoral contests, promised to continue his frequent attacks on Mayor Richard Riordan and his administration. "The selling of our city must come to a halt.
