A group of environmental workers contends that San Bernardino County officials with a conservative political agenda are undermining a landmark federal desert protection pact--and even implicitly inviting vigilante violence. County officials say they are simply trying to preserve a rural way of life. But in the process, they have resurrected a bitter ideological battle over whether preservation of the desert requires restrictions on ranching and mining.

Need to build a new county jail but no local community wants it? Perhaps it could be placed in Riverside County, Orange County officials say. Floods on the Santa Ana River? Federal flood-control plans for Orange County call for raising the Prado Dam in Riverside County and stopping flood waters there. Need money to build more car-pool lanes on the Riverside Freeway? Orange County wants to pay for it with a loan from--you guessed it--Riverside County.

San Bernardino boasts year-round sunshine, but that's not why politicians from across the country are suddenly interested in the Inland Empire. With the GOP controlling the House of Representatives by a mere five votes, Democrats and Republicans alike are gauging the political climate of the 42nd Congressional District, where a special election will be held next month to fill the unexpired term of the late Democratic Rep. George E. Brown Jr.

Ruben S. Ayala Community Park sits on Central Avenue in Chino, five miles from the new Ruben S. Ayala High School in Chino Hills. In Rialto, there's Ayala Drive and not far away, in Bloomington, is Ayala Park. Clearly, civic recognition is not a problem for state Sen. Ruben S. Ayala (D-Chino) in his 34th District, which stretches from Pomona eastward through Chino, Ontario, Fontana, Rialto and Colton to San Bernardino.

A cold, cavernous warehouse seemed an unlikely place for a Republican governor to formally launch his reelection campaign. Republican candidates prefer outdoor rallies with bands and flags, followed by a civic luncheon with corporate executives and a country club reception during the cocktail hour. Only Democrats go to warehouses with muddy entrances at the start of the morning shift. But there was Gov.

Wendy Pacheco has the red-white-and-blue flu, and she's got it bad. There's the inability to concentrate as the slick brochures start their steady slide into the mailbox. The feeling that her vote doesn't even count. At least she doesn't have the nausea that grips John Arbogash whenever he thinks about politicians. Or the guilt that racks Al Leach, a guy who has had this peculiarly American ailment for the past 63 years and passed it on to his daughter, Gillian, 25.

Under fire from women's rights organizations and state health officials, San Bernardino County officials abandoned their campaign Tuesday to end the distribution of morning-after contraceptive pills in county health clinics. The Board of Supervisors voted 3 to 2 not to appeal a Los Angeles-based nonprofit health care agency's decision to block their proposal. An appeal would have gone to the U.S.

When Assemblyman John Longville met San Bernardino City Councilwoman Susan Lien at her 1998 inauguration, he just assumed she was one of them -- a conservative. After all, Republican lawmakers lord over San Bernardino County politics. And Longville, a Vietnam War protester who dropped out of college to join Sen. Eugene McCarthy's presidential campaign in 1968, is one of the county's most liberal politicians. But he soon learned that she was a kindred spirit.

Growing up in the Inland Empire, Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Redlands) was such a star at San Bernardino High School that he captained the swimming team and his basketball jersey was later retired. He went on to build an insurance business, raise seven children, serve on a school board and enter the state Legislature before going on to Congress.
