Rodolfo Montejano, a 20-year member of the Rancho Santiago College Board of Trustees, announced Friday that he will resign from the board in September. Montejano made public his plans to move to Indiana last October when he resigned from the board of the Santiago Club, a local nonprofit business league that he founded. But since that time, he had been vague about exactly when he would be stepping down from the college board.

Moments after his final meeting as a member of the Rancho Santiago College Board of Trustees last week, Rodolfo Montejano appeared more relieved than sad that his 20-year tenure on the panel had finally come to an end. Diagnosed with diabetes in 1990, Montejano, a powerful Santa Ana attorney and lobbyist who grew up in the city's Delhi barrio, said it was time to put a halt to what he called "life in the fast lane." At age 53, he is preparing for a slower, less-stressful life in Evansville, Ind.

Ingmar Bergman's magical film of Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute" begins with a scene few can forget. During the Overture, the camera pans the faces of an ethnically and culturally diverse audience, and for a few moments, everyone is taken by the music to a single place. This United Nations-esque vision is not likely to take place in a real U.S. concert hall, however. Crowds for such music, especially in Orange County, tend to be rich, old--and white. Is there systematic exclusion of minorities?

Five hundred people were expected, but more than 2,000 showed up. They held candles and walked through a grimy Santa Ana neighborhood where the sheen of poverty and tough workaday lives was lessened by the glow of candlelight and the festive air of the holidays. The walk was Las Posadas, the traditional re-enacting of Mary and Joseph's search for a place to stay to await the birth of Jesus Christ.
