Inmates armed with broom handles and socks filled with soap bars sparked a 20-minute brawl in their crowded cell block at a San Diego County jail, officials said. Fifteen prisoners were injured in the disturbance at a medium-security area of the El Cajon Detention Facility. The fight continued sporadically for about 20 minutes before deputies quelled the disturbance, Sgt. Frank Ramirez said. The cell is designed to hold 24 inmates, Ramirez said, but at the time of the fight it housed 112.

Frank Ramirez, known to generations of customers as Mr. Panchito in honor of the Mexican restaurant he owned for more than 35 years in San Gabriel, has died. He was 88. Ramirez died Dec. 18 at a San Gabriel hospital a week after having a heart attack, said his daughter Eileen Leiva. A mason by trade, Ramirez opened the popular Panchito's Restaurant in 1956 on a whim. With colleagues, he laid the bricks for the restaurant on the site of San Gabriel's first city hall and presided over it, often clothed in traditional Mexican garb, until it closed in 1993.

For 60 of his 84 years, Frank Ramirez has lived on West Broadway in San Gabriel, just past the old mission in the center of the historic district. I drove there Friday morning to answer, in person, a letter he had written to me. Sometimes it feels as though I'm losing ground in responding to readers who write or call. On the holiday weekend, it seemed appropriate to offer all those people both an apology and a thank-you, as well as to highlight one of many who took the time to write.
