After winning a City Council seat last year on a campaign of transparency and accountability, Steve Di Memmo said he quickly found himself the outsider in a clique of clubby officials who shared long-standing ties and mutual interests. But he didn't realize just how far outside he was until Thursday, when he learned he was the sole San Jacinto city councilman not facing felony indictments. The news left him torn. "These people have not been found guilty of anything yet," he said repeatedly over coffee in San Jacinto on Friday.

But a Caltech seismologist said it is 95% likely that no larger quake will occur along the San Jacinto--one of Southern California's most active faults--in the immediate future.

You might call it a desert island. San Jacinto Peak, 10,804 feet high, is a cool oasis of alpine forests, meadows and bubbling streams surrounded by the desert. It is, arguably, the best mountain in Southern California. Barren and rugged in some spots, lush and gentle in others, San Jacinto's extremes are matched by few peaks anywhere. It is a wild place--more than 40 square miles at the top are designated wilderness--but remarkably accessible.

If a town is reflected by its police blotter, consider some of last Thursday's entries: A cow sitting on the side of the road. A traffic stop--warning, no ticket. A stolen welfare check. Kids throwing objects at passing cars. Someone trying to lift up a manhole cover. Several family disturbances. And one read, simply, "triple homicide." Such an unspeakable crime--a 34-year-old woman who allegedly stabbed her three young children to death--would seem an aberration for any community.

Although it gave Vice President Dan Quayle some uncomfortable moments last week, for many the potato epitomizes the essence of comfort food. It appears daily on plates the world over--sliced, diced, mashed, steamed, fried, baked and who knows what else. Although most of us are familiar with the soothing qualities of a russet or a White Rose potato, an avalanche of colorful additions has recently appeared on the market.

Editor's note The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are regular concerns of The Times' editorial pages, and undoubtedly will be much debated in the coming presidential campaign. Today, however, is not for politics or policy, but rather for honor. And thus we pay our respects to the women and men of our armed forces who have given their lives in defense of this country and its freedoms. Below, those who made that sacrifice from Jan. 1, 2008, through midnight Saturday. Jim Newton, Editor of the Editorial Pages -- [ IRAQ ]

As the cost of attending four-year universities continues to rise precipitously (private universities now charge as much as $22,200 for annual tuition), more individuals are exploring non-university options to obtain educations that can ready them for entry into the work force. Southern California's numerous community colleges offer relatively inexpensive ($13 per unit), two-year vocational certificate programs that prepare students for specific jobs.
