The campaign for president may have hit a new low. First my "John Kerry for President" signs that I placed on the back hill of my property were stolen. After replacing them, the signs were torn down. Now my neighbor has had his Kerry sign defaced with a Bush/Cheney sticker. If we want to bring honor and integrity back to the White House, we need a change, and we need it now. And we need those lawbreaking, unpatriotic folks who walk my neighborhood to calm down and settle in, for Kerry and Edwards soon will be our leaders for good.

Chris Johnson has gone from the Tennessee Titans to the onetime New York Titans. The former 2,000-yard running back signed a two-year deal with the New York Jets on Wednesday, according to multiple reports, potentially adding punch to an offense ranked 25 th in total yards last season. The Jets were the only team Johnson visited after being released by the Titans almost two weeks ago. Johnson, 28, is coming off a down season in which he averaged a career-low 3.9 yards per carry and didn't have a run longer than 30 yards.

Amazing, isn't it? Sign makers for foreign demonstrators can always write in English. Especially when U.S. cameras will be snap- ping. AL HIX Hollywood

Reading the article "Lack of Hospitality," by Arnold Stone (June 24), reminded me of our drive last July from Vancouver, B.C., through Washington, Oregon and into California. There were many helpful directions and signs for tourists all through Washington and Oregon, but the moment we crossed the border into California, the first sign we saw was "$500 Fine for Littering." Very few directional signs were evident along the California coast. Winding through the hills near Bodega Bay, we were strictly on our own, fervently hoping that we were heading for San Francisco.

Nowhere in Orange County is there more campaign paraphernalia than in Huntington Beach. Surf City is plastered from vacant lot to telephone pole with colorful placards for the 10 candidates in two competitive races in today's election. "We're inundated," said Arnie Samardich, a code enforcement officer for the city. "There're definitely people who don't like it much."

The California Republican Party, long given up for dead, is showing surprising signs of life. The last two decades have marked a slow, steady decline for a party that once yielded such national figures as Earl Warren, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Its registration rolls have fallen substantially. Worse is the recent record of statewide futility, a nearly unbroken skein of losses save for the 2003 election of Arnold Schwarzenegger under extraordinary circumstances (a snap recall vote)

Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich, whose plan to give permanent residency to illegal immigrants has angered some conservatives, signed a pledge Thursday to build a double fence along the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of 2013. The former House speaker is on a two-campaign visit to Iowa, which will open the voting in the 2012 GOP contest next month and where anti-immigrant sentiment is intense. "We haven't been able to build a fence on the border because we have not been a serious country," said Gingrich, as he prepared to sign the pledge following a morning speech to employees at Nationwide Insurance in Des Moines.
