A jury returned second-degree murder verdicts Wednesday for the last two defendants charged in the 1993 death of a San Clemente teenager who was speared through the head with a paint-roller rod during a beach side confrontation. The mothers of defendants Saul Penuelas, 20, and Rogelio Vasquez Solis, 19, wailed in tears outside the courtroom, while the family of the victim, Steve Woods, said the guilty verdicts will have little meaning unless the two young men receive stiff prison sentences.

When Steve Wood was growing up in West Covina, he aspired to becoming a jockey at Santa Anita. That goal all but disappeared by the time Wood was 12, for he already weighed 115 pounds. Wood, who is now 40, and weighs about 180, has made it to Santa Anita anyhow but instead of riding horses in Arcadia, he is caring for the track over which they run. Wood was hired as Santa Anita's track superintendent about a month ago.

The senseless death of San Clemente teen-ager Steve Woods has produced a stunning reaction within the community, as a whole city appears to go through the grieving process of denial, anger and finally acceptance. The funeral for the 17-year-old a week ago may have been the emotional pinnacle; it was remarkable for the positive messages it produced, the vows to make the young man's death count, to give it meaning.

A powerful visual image lingers from the attack in a San Clemente park on 17-year-old Steve Woods. An X-ray showed a paint roller lodged in Woods' brain. It was stark and sickening; it also spoke dramatically of the violent fury of a suspected gang attack. The man responsible for gaining permission from Woods' family to release the X-ray was Dr. Thomas E. Shaver, a surgeon and director of the trauma unit at Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center in Mission Viejo.

Two youths were convicted of second-degree murder and nine other felonies Thursday in a gang attack at a San Clemente beach last year that ended with the death of 17-year-old Steve Woods after a paint-roller rod pierced his skull.

My best friend carries pepper spray when she goes jogging. It's always in her purse when we go out. This defense would be useless if she confronted an attacker carrying a semiautomatic pistol, but it makes her feel safe. People in Orange County are increasingly doing things to make them feel protected, even if in vain. Violent crimes are not limited to rival gang activity. Video cameras capture young people killing shop owners for small amounts of money. Children are being shot.
