Facing a tight budget year, city officials are turning up the heat on the Sheriff's Department to cut the cost of its well-known anti-drug program in the schools, hoping to free more money for needed street patrols. City officials this week renewed their call for the department to replace the sworn deputies in its SANE program, who cost nearly $100,000 a year, with younger, non-sworn community service officers, who cost only $30,000. But sheriff's officials flatly rejected the demand.

Sometimes, honesty does pay. Consider Sixto Perez, the impoverished 12-year-old from La Puente who was honored Tuesday for turning down $100 to sell drugs. His story, reported in The Times, struck a responsive chord that prompted more than 350 people to call and pledge money, food and clothing. "My heart really goes out to this boy," said Iris Wexler of Burbank, who said she is on a fixed income but plans to send $5 and a card.

It would be hard to imagine a child who needed $100 more than Sixto Perez. Home is a trailer park in La Puente, where he lives with his mother and five siblings. Often, teachers say, his only meals are free school lunches. Although only 12, Sixto does odd jobs after school. Last fall, he was sweeping and stocking a mini-mart for $20 a week when temptation rode up on a bicycle. A man flashed a wad of bills, offering him $100 to sell drugs at his school, Los Robles Elementary.

Instead of spending part of his summer vacation "hanging out," Eric Brown, 11, helped paint four houses for elderly, disabled and low-income San Dimas residents.
