How interesting to learn about the generous 12% wage boost afforded the mechanics and service workers at Orange County Transit District (Oct. 17) through auspices of the Teamsters Union. While the Teamsters are not yet in power as a representative of OCTD, they have negotiated a contract by simply ignoring the United Transportation Union, which is currently the bargaining agent with some months remaining on its contract. What is even more difficult to understand is the clause in this new contract that calls for pay bonuses for employees who meet attendance and productivity goals.

Asphalt was visible in the shopping mall parking lots for the first time in days Tuesday and the freeways looked almost as deserted, signs that most businesses were closed for Christmas and that most workers had the day off. But for Newport Beach lifeguard Brian O'Rourke and other public safety and service workers in Orange County, Christmas was just another day on the job.

Under fire from local elected officials and private social service workers, the Orange County Board of Supervisors has ordered the reopening of the only welfare office in South Orange County by the end of the week. The branch office of the Social Services Agency in San Juan Capistrano was closed last Friday after county welfare officials determined that they did not have the funds to properly staff the facility.

The day care center run by the Mental Health Assn. of Orange County is in a nondescript office building on Chapman Avenue, just around the corner from the prim homes along Shady Acre Street. Inside the center, people who are homeless and mentally ill wash their clothes, shoot pool, and participate in a self-esteem group meeting. On Shady Acre, residents on a recent weekday stood in front of freshly painted stucco houses, clipping flowering shrubs and plucking weeds from well-manicured lawns.

The framed poster hanging over the fireplace is of an empty wooden chair. Its title, "Remembering Absent Friends," is a message with a dual meaning for those who live here at Annie's House, a home for AIDS patients with nowhere else to go. Beyond a sunny, spacious family room, a few friends sit on a patio as a mild breeze ruffles the foliage in the tree-lined back yard. The conversation is relaxed, laced with laughter and teasing, but the words are mostly serious.
