There were swimming pool parties for the children and block parties for the whole family, J.T. Johnson said. Everybody knew everybody else, Blanca Johnson added, making folks true "neighbors." That was 1964, when the Johnsons first moved into their home near Orange Avenue and Brookhurst Street. Twenty-eight years later, the sense of community is gone, they say, and it has been replaced with an infestation of crime. "There are younger parents, with children out on the streets," J.T. Johnson said. "It used to be that families controlled their children's activities. Today, no one can control their activities." The Johnsons and other people who live in the Brookhurst area have banded together to form an URGE coalition — United Residents Grassroots Effort. It is the second URGE group in the city. The first sprung out of the Riverdale community. Residents of that area reported an increase in neighborhood graffiti, burglaries and thefts, and asked Planning Commissioner Bob Zemel to help them organize a grassroots coalition to combat the growing problems. Zemel, who is a City Council candidate, helped the Brookhurst community organize after residents read about the Riverdale group in the newspaper and called him for help. The Brookhurst URGE group reports problems that are similar to Riverdale's and say drug and gang activity has become increasingly present around their homes.

He hopes to become a cook.Willing and ableService places disabled persons at jobs By Dave Heitz North County News Gerardo Castillo, Becky Gooseman and David Baxter are delighted to work for $2.13 an hour, polishing brass and dusting every nook and cranny at the Black Angus Restaurant. Like them, people who are afflicted with physical and mental disabilities take great pride in being able to do the everyday tasks that mainstream society finds blah, stressful or the cause of many headaches. In fact, people who work with the disabled say many of them would relish tasks like driving to and from work in rush-hour traffic.Please see PLACEMENT/4Citizens balk at new signSay Rosebay, not RosebarBy Dave Heitz North County News Residents of "Rosebar" Street want to take back their neighborhood. It's not gangs or drugs that they are worried about. They just want the name of their street back. A few curious community noses spotted a street sign at Rosebay Street and Orange Avenue a couple of weeks ago-marked "Rosebar" instead of "Rosebay." A few longtime residents are not amused. "Everybody on the street is going to have to have their driver's license changed," Hal Pelfry said. "It's going to be a damned mess." Pelfry has lived on the block since 19S4. His was the third family to move into the development, which previously was surrounded by Orange groves. "My kids named this street," Pelfry said. Although his daughter, Beth, does not recall naming the street, Hal Pelfry said the men who were constructing the street stopped by the house one day for a glass of water. The Pelfry children suggested the street be named Rosebay, Hal Pelfry said, and the worker wrote it on a notepad. Hal and Beth Pelfry said they made several phone calls to the Mayor Fred Hunter and Councilman Irv Pickler about getting the sign corrected, but could not reach them. After a week of not having her messages answered, Beth Pelfry said she finally bypassed voice mail and got a real person on the telephone Monday. She said she talked to a man in the street maintenance department named Jacque Moreno who told her that the city would take care of it. ;
