Oscar Campa doesn't like bumming rides from friends and family, but he has found that it's the most cost-efficient way to get to work. "Riding a bus would take too long and taking a taxicab would cost too much," said Campa, a Huntington Park resident who works as a home mortgage lending executive in Commerce. A taxi would cost about $20 each way. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority soon will offer a cheaper alternative for Campa and other Southeast-area commuters.

There's been one notably awkward issue between Luis Arteaga and his mother. He's an official with the California Emerging Technology Fund; she couldn't use a computer. Never touched a mouse -- until Wednesday. Enter Club Digital, a new public-private partnership to put more people online -- especially the underrepresented Latino community. The goal is to help senior citizens such as Edelmira Arteaga, 69, get online and also to enable students to complete assignments, allow young adults to fill out online job applications and assist anyone else left behind when it comes to email, Google and Facebook.

The Gonzalez family of Maywood is in a tight spot. Rosalva and Pedro and their six children and two grandchildren live in a cramped, two-bedroom apartment in a poor, rundown neighborhood near railroad tracks and a packing company. At night, the couple share a bedroom with their two youngest daughters--ages 2 and 4--while their three older daughters--ages 10, 14 and 18--and two infant granddaughters cram into the second bedroom. Their 17-year-old son sleeps on a twin bed in the living room.
