A San Leandro sausage maker, charged with killing three meat inspectors, has been denied a request for a new lawyer. Stuart Alexander wanted his public defenders replaced by private attorneys Jack Leavitt and Jim Crew at the county's expense. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Jon Rolefson refused the request after Leavitt argued for the change. Alexander inherited the successful Santos Linguisa Factory in San Leandro from his parents, but he is now in poor financial shape.

Mine was a childhood of scent. I remember summers spent in the sweet-smelling home of my grandparents: the lingering fragrance of tea-scrubbed floors; wooden furniture polished to a sheen with lemon balm leaves; featherbeds covered with softly worn sheets dried in the sun, draped over lavender bushes. How times have changed since our grandmothers and great-grandmothers searched anthills for fine grains of sand to scour the kitchen pots with.

After enduring a "living hell" before getting her sixth-grade son into a school for learning disabled children, Kristi Wicker resists the urge to imagine "What if?" What if Kyle had not languished for six years in a Long Beach public elementary school without proper instruction? What if teachers and school psychologists had identified his dyslexia--and helped him compensate for it--before he slipped years behind his peers in reading ability? "It's best to put that behind me," Wicker said.

The three lives of Secretary of State Bill Jones--as family farmer, as public official and now as candidate for governor--have intertwined in complex and at times unexpected ways. Jones, the only Republican statewide officeholder, is a conservative when it comes to government spending and social programs, but he has received about $400,000 in federal agricultural subsidies during the past five years. Jones prides himself as a campaign finance reformer.

Tens of thousands of students in California's special education system have been placed there not because of a serious mental or emotional handicap, but because they were never taught to read properly. Failed by mainstream classes and teachers, they are then referred to special education and labeled "learning disabled." There they are failed a second time, by a badly flawed system designed to be their safety net.
