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. On Tuesday, this relentless Santa Ana outsider pulled up a chair at the establishment's table.

This week's election of trustees for the Orange Unified School District followed a heated campaign in which incumbents Maureen Aschoff and Bill Lewis, who were reelected, ran on a platform advocating less government and union influence in schools.

Cliff Berning is a rarity in modern politics. A candidate for a hotly contested school board race in Fullerton, he takes pride in calling himself an "onward soldier" of the Christian right. He favors school prayer--with a passion. He also believes in creationism, and though he teaches elementary school in the Los Angeles Unified School District, he contends the story of Adam, Eve and Genesis ought to be taught in all public schools as the literal and indisputable start of human life.

Orange County's off-year elections Tuesday could be hotter than blazes--or colder than ice. In Irvine, where three city measures are on the ballot, the election may prove to be a showdown between longtime political foes. But the county's five school board contests have generated little excitement, if the low-key speeches and door-to-door campaigns of the past month are any indication.
