It was with great sadness and disappointment that I read "900-Services Sales Pitch Jilts Some Investors" (March 9). This article is a perfect example of the media taking the truth and bending it to fit its particular point of view regardless of how it affects those involved. The article stated the truth about my lack of involvement other than being a hired announcer to explain a product. Unfortunately, however, it then tainted the fact and actually made me out to be guilty by inference.

There'll be no rain on the upcoming Tournament of Roses Parade for former KTLA-TV Channel 5 host Stephanie Edwards -- at least not figuratively. Edwards, the veteran broadcaster who was removed from the station's coverage of the New Year's Day event two years ago after co-hosting for more than 25 years, will return to her familiar role on Jan. 1, station executives said Tuesday. "The people at the station thought it was a great idea, and Stephanie thought it was a great idea," said station spokesman Paul Nichols.

Today's an especially big day for football bowl games, but what about those who love a parade?

1995 has begun with a whimper: Chasen's is closing; the Rams moved to St. Louis; Orange County is going bust; the Dodgers are in limbo; Hollywood Boulevard is sinking; Los Angeles lost out on federal funds for empowerment zones; the city remains dusted with the psychic ash of recent floods, fires, quakes and civil disturbances, and the O.J. Simpson trial is a viscous fog that enervates even as it entices. Los Angeles needs a lift. But what--or who--will provide it? Bill Clinton? Richard Riordan?

The bloom is back on the Tournament of Roses Parade for veteran television host Stephanie Edwards. The red-haired personality said she is thrilled to be back in the KTLA-TV broadcast booth for this year's New Year's Day parade, especially after being demoted in 2005, then later dropped from the coverage team altogether, after more than 25 years. Edwards will be reunited with co-host Bob Eubanks at the annual Pasadena event, KTLA executives announced Tuesday.
