County workers, labor representatives and community activists on Friday rallied against proposed cuts in county services and offered an alternate spending plan they say would avoid deep cutbacks and layoffs. About 150 people gathered at a South-Central Los Angeles health clinic to denounce the proposed closure of dozens of pools, parks, libraries and clinics as a way of closing a $400-million to $500-million gap in the county's $14.7-billion budget.

But this was not quite like yesteryear. The pounding of news helicopters made sure of that.

To keep them from being booted off their inner-city garden plots, actress Daryl Hannah occupied the upper reaches of a walnut tree. Joan Baez showed up to sing for them. The land's owner called them squatters, but Hollywood hailed them as urban heroes. Sheriff's deputies and police officers in riot gear moved them out anyway. Two years later, some of the evicted farmers from the former South Central Community Garden are among the newest landowners in this tiny town west of Bakersfield.

Since it opened nine years ago, the privately operated Watts Health Center at 103rd Street and Compton Avenue has been one of the community's jewels, a gleaming, conveniently located building offering subsidized medical care and free transportation. The center also has a symbolic presence. "From frustration to realization," reads a lobby plaque that contains three chunks of molten glass from store windows burned during the Watts riots in 1965.
