About 20 protesters held a peaceful candlelight vigil on Thursday outside the new headquarters of the Police Officers Assn., demanding an apology for a campaign mailer they called racially offensive. "There's no glory in what we're doing . . . but if we don't stand up for our rights, we'll get run over every time," said Rueben Martinez, spokesman for the Committee Against Ethnic Bashing for Political Gain, before the meeting.

Citing a list of his accomplishments during his past two years in office, Mayor Daniel H. Young on Monday officially announced plans to seek a fourth two-year term as mayor of Santa Ana. Accompanied by 65 supporters who gathered on the steps of the old Orange County Courthouse, Young entered the race that will pit him against Councilman John Acosta, a feisty, although under-financed rival. First elected to the council in 1983, Young became mayor in 1986.

Young and his slate of council candidates.
