Calling public safety a common concern among residents throughout California, Secretary of State Bill Jones on Friday predicted a "new era" in which government and the public offer greater support of law enforcement. Addressing more than 200 people at an awards ceremony hosted by the Valley Community Legal Foundation, Jones said a heightened concern over crime would cause residents to rally behind law enforcement in the same way that public support for the military grew during the Cold War.

An all-day Community Crime Prevention and Legal Rights Fair brought out law enforcement's finest, from a couple of Los Angeles Police Department officers on horseback to a traffic unit with a crumpled car in tow. The only thing missing was the public.

This past Sunday in the northern San Fernando Valley was as good a day as any to have headed to the beach or the cool confines of any air-conditioned space. There was that ever present Valley heat to contend with, and the air near the San Gabriel Mountains was just short of awful. That is why we were so pleasantly surprised by the huge turnout at the Hansen Dam Recreation Area for an anti-gang fund-raising event. It was hardly predictable.
