Griset for failing to identify himself on mailings distributed during his 1988 reelection campaign.

Crime. Crime. Mostly crime," Reuben Martinez, a downtown small-business owner, said of residents' concerns and the content of much of this year's campaigning. With longtime Mayor Daniel H.

The communities are different, but their educational straits are similar: campuses crammed with portable buildings, electrical wiring too feeble to support the latest technology, sagging infrastructure, and heating and cooling systems on the fritz. It's a lousy setting for teaching kids, school officials in the Capistrano, Huntington Beach and Santa Ana districts decided. So all three this month are seeking multimillion-dollar school bonds to repair aging campuses and build new ones.

What will Ted do? That's the question swirling around Santa Ana after last month's indictment of councilman and mayoral candidate Ted R. Moreno. Before entering a plea of not guilty to public corruption, the combative Moreno was preparing a head-butting campaign against incumbent Miguel A. Pulido Jr. for leadership of the largest city in the county. As a council member, Moreno must leave office in 2000, but the separately elected office of mayor has no term limit.

For much of two decades Nativo V. Lopez has stumped hard and loud for the rights of immigrants, one month marching picket lines in Anaheim or Orange, the next rallying rent strikes or railing against housing or bank or police officials. As the national co-director of Hermandad Mexicana Nacional--National Mexican Brotherhood--the 46-year-old has dug deep under the skin of more than one politician.
