PHOTO ESSAY: Choice & Consequence

STREET HEALING: Lue Moua, an auto detailer for Volkswagen of Merced, sprays off a hot and sweaty Monica Villa in an alley behind the dealership. Moua's work area was a regular stop for Villa over the course of last summer as she made daily trips back and forth from the Bear Creek encampment to town. Villa said she later helped Moua get registered to vote for the November election. (TIMES PHOTO BY LEONARDO ALVAREZ)
