This 10-year-old is going neon in green and pink.Metal braces with colored accents are accessories worth smiling about, say kids and young teens.But the colors aren't there just for decoration. Elastic ligatures or "ties" those tiny round bands that fit around metal brackets on the front of the teeth are the most popular colored tooth gear. (The ties and brackets are attached to thin wire bands that wrap across and put pressure on the teeth.

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Soledad Aviles dreamed for years of owning a home, with a plot of land where he could grow corn and chiles as he did in his native Mexico. So he felt blessed last year when he learned he could buy a three-bedroom, single-story stucco house on West La Verne Avenue in Santa Ana. Referred to a local loan broker by a trusted friend, he borrowed the entire purchase price of $615,000 from Washington Mutual at a high interest rate typical of subprime loans. The monthly payment, as he says he understood it, would be $3,600 - steep for a glass cutter who made $9 an hour - but Aviles counted on his wife and three of his six daughters, who also worked low-paying jobs, to contribute.

The Federal Aviation Administration's top scientist warned -- before two fatal airplane accidents -- that wake turbulence from Boeing 757 jetliners would cause a "major crash" if the agency failed to take preventive measures, internal documents show.The documents reveal for the first time that experts within the FAA itself had, before the tragedies in Billings, Mont., and Santa Ana, Calif., expressed serious concerns about the potential danger to planes operating behind 757s.Eleven days before the Billings crash on Dec. 18, 1992, killed eight people and a year before the Santa Ana accident of Dec. 15, 1993, claimed five lives, chief scientist Robert E. Machol predicted a "catastrophe" because of 757 wake turbulence at a meeting with the FAA's hierarchy.

CABAZON, Calif. -- Four firefighters were killed yesterday when a fast-moving arson fire fed by Santa Ana winds churned through southeastern California, destroying homes and forcing hundreds of residents to flee. The Esperanza fire burned more than 10,000 acres near Cabazon, about 90 miles east of Los Angeles and 20 miles northwest of Palm Springs. Fueled by dry wood, high temperatures and winds gusting to more than 30 mph, the blaze burned out of control as more than 700 firefighters fought to tame the fire that was reported about 1 a.m. "This is an arson fire," said Chief John Hawkins, head of Riverside County's Fire Department, which is part of the state's fire agency.

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- With little sign that their final debate altered the race, President Clinton and Bob Dole began a home-stretch battle yesterday over California, whose 54 electoral votes are the richest prize in the presidential election.Dole decided yesterday to devote much of his remaining time and resources to denying the president a victory in a state that Clinton has been counting on for re-election. In four appearances, the Republican nominee hammered away at two themes -- his tax-cut pledge and ethical lapses in the Clinton White House -- that his campaign says are beginning to catch fire.

Douglas Aircraft Co. has lopped off 15,000 jobs since mid-1990.These companies are cutting more jobs than most small businesses have.

SANTA ANA, Calif. - Many people who know Nicolas Jacobsen said last week that they were surprised the young man had been accused of hacking into a huge cell phone network that guards millions of private messages. Former neighbors, including some who witnessed his arrest last fall after federal agents arrived at their aging Santa Ana apartment complex, said he was just too bright to do such a thing. "He could talk about politics. He knows about the law," said Victor Gonzalez, 60, a retired construction worker.

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- A wall outside Santa Ana High School proclaims it to be "Home of the Saints." Inside, Republican presidential nominee George W. Bush was being presented a cap and shirt from the school's student president. "It honors you as a Saint -- for today," she said. Mr. Bush, his face breaking into a mischievous grin, looked out at the reporters observing from the rear of the room. "Did everybody write that down back there?" he asked. The past couple of weeks were hardly an elevation to sainthood for the Texas governor.

Almost every autumn, fierce desert winds called the Santa Anas sweep across California's mountains and into a landscape primed to burn by months, and sometimes years, of dry weather. Southern California's wild lands have gone up in smoke again and again over the centuries. But now people have built their homes on those forested mountain slopes, amid flammable brush and in narrow canyons that act as wildfire funnels. This confluence of forces - the weather, the wild landscape and the changes that humans have made to it - give Southern California's wildfires a destructive power that most Easterners can barely imagine.
