In September, while on vacation in Newport Beach, Gilbert Levine made a day trip to Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside, the so-called "King of the Missions." He found himself completely captivated. "In the halls of old churches and homes, in synagogues, in any ancient structure, I hear music," said Levine, the New York-born conductor of the Krakow Philharmonic. "Architecture sings in a way. I heard wonderful music in the walls of this mission." Last weekend, others heard it too.

Oceanside officials cleared a major hurdle in efforts to open a temporary shelter for homeless families with state approval Monday of a $200,000 federal grant. The grant is the most that the city can receive from a pool of $1.3 million for cities with populations under 200,000, said Richard Goodman, Oceanside's housing chief. The grant will allow the city to either lease or purchase 15 portable trailers on a leased 3-acre site near the San Luis Rey Mission. The city signed a three-year lease with the property's owner, Sisters of the Precious Blood, for one dollar a year, Goodman said.

A recent proposal to establish a temporary shelter for homeless families in Oceanside met with the kind of community resistance that commonly greets most services for the poor. The testimony at a planning commission public hearing was about equally divided between proponents and opponents, with strong emotion on both sides. Most of the opposition came from the Quail Ridge and San Luis Homes communities, neighbors of the property where 15 trailers would be placed for three years to provide emergency shelter for families with children.
