Just a note to tell you how much I have been enjoying David W. Myers' series on affordable housing (May 15-June 5). While at first depressing, especially for one who has yet to buy a first home in Los Angeles, each article has renewed my belief that where there's a will, there's a way! SYDNEY L. WILSON Malibu

Congratulations to David W. Myers for a job well done with the article on the problems of hazardous waste and toxic materials (June 12). I think articles such as this by writers who obviously understand the topic are most beneficial to the commercial real estate industry. ALEXIS A. FAFENRODT Los Angeles

I read with great interest David W. Myers' article "Home Major Battleground on Pollution" (Aug. 28). I passed the article to all my friends, and they were all very interested and willing to start the war against pollution in our own homes. HELENE JEANNEL Los Angeles

Kuniko Yagi is the executive chef of the newly opened Century City restaurant Hinoki & the Bird, focusing on the flavors of Japan and Southeast Asia. Yagi's from Maebashi City, Japan, and though she has no formal culinary training, she landed a job in the kitchen at David Myers' Sona after moving to Los Angeles. She most recently was executive chef at Myers' Comme Ca and appears on this season's “Top Chef.” What's coming up next on your menu? I'm thinking of a pasta dish, but not an Italian dish, rather something more our style here at Hinoki & the Bird, like handmade buckwheat pasta with duck confited in Asian spices.

The Palmdale City Council has decided to make its meetings more user friendly by moving the public comments segment from the end of the sessions to the beginning. The meetings also will start at 7 p.m., instead of 7:30. The council's regular meetings are held once a month, and typically have lengthy agendas that delay the public testimony on non-agenda issues to as late as midnight.

Unseeded Coronado High School disregarded the seedings and played the kind of water polo that has earned it the past three 3-A San Diego Section titles. The Islanders (26-4) upset top-seeded Poway, 6-2, to reach the finals Saturday. Coronado faces Monte Vista at the Jewish Community Center at 5:30 p.m. in the first game of a championship doubleheader. Poway (25-5) couldn't get the kind of quality shots it needed.
