In the heated, often polarized world of ethnic politics, Gil and Susie Flores stand out as low-key, conciliatory and quietly determined advocates of civil rights. Third-generation Americans who choose to live in a densely populated, low-income neighborhood of immigrants, they have more than 40 years of community activism between them, many of those years spent volunteering for the League of United Latin American Citizens.

Community service and activism has been Josie Montoya's life since she started volunteering for her church at age 16. "It's a way of life for me," said Montoya, 57, born and reared in Anaheim. "I learned from my father. He always gave people a hand up--he gave whatever he could. He had 10 children, and we were a poor family. But he always had the time and resources to help others. I learned that we are our brothers' keepers." Montoya and Benny A. Diaz Jr.

As Anglo parents in the Orange Unified School District, we wish to express our profound disappointment in the district's regrettable decision to place an advisory measure on the November ballot concerning the future of English-language acquisition programs in the district. The proposal is exacerbated by the folly of pursuing a permanent state waiver to discontinue all primary-language instruction in favor of English-only classes. The ill-conceived election proposal runs contrary to true American ideals of fairness for all and trivializes the importance of the democratic process.

Defying some experts' predictions, home prices in Southern California reached new peaks in November as the pace of sales held steady in what was typically a slow time of year. The median price in each of the region's five counties rose at least 23% from the same month in 2003. The number of homes sold dipped 0.6%, to 27,459, but it was the third-strongest November since 1988, according to DataQuick Information Systems, which compiles monthly housing statistics.

Forged in anger, a small Latino activist group has grown since its founding early this year into a potent political force, gaining followers among the city's poorest and enemies among officialdom. The group, Vecinos Unidos, or United Neighborhoods, has since its opening salvo on the steps of Anaheim City Hall in March taken a keen sense of injustice, a penchant for allegations of police abuse and a confrontational style from the City Council chamber to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
