Your coverage of Mayor Dave Garofalo of Huntington Beach does a great injustice to a man who commits so much of his energy and life to bettering his community. Garofalo gets a pittance of pay and spends almost all his waking hours in public service only to be nit-picked, slandered and victimized by exaggerated claims and accusations. Although The Times is making it front-page news (June 25), there is nothing new about the charges against Garofalo. He is being attacked for selling ads in his newspaper and visitors guide.

San Jose, 47, an ex-convict with a record for robberies and narcotics offenses going back 20 years, said Sonoma County Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Nelson.

"We're losing the war against obesity in the U.S.," says chef Jamie Oliver. "Our kids are growing up overweight and malnourished from a diet of processed foods, and today's children will be the first generation ever to live shorter lives than their parents. " About 1 in 3 adults and 1 in 6 children are obese, according the Centers for Disease Control , and such obesity-related diseases as Type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer have become leading causes of death in our country.

Are supermarket prices in San Diego lower than those in nearby Los Angeles County? Yes, no and maybe, according to supermarket executives, federal government statistics and grocery industry observers. Those who believe San Diegans pay less for their groceries point to ever-increasing competition among retailers, the price-slashing policy employed by the now-defunct FedMart discount grocery stores, and the fairly recent arrival of Ralphs Grocery Co.

Quetzalcoatl and Tlaloc were supposed to live together for at least five years on a Pasadena street corner, coexisting on the side of a Fair Oaks Avenue grocery store. The Aztec deities had come together at the hands of a local artist who -- with the help of a $2,500 city grant -- painted them on a bursting-with-color mural complete with the San Gabriel Mountains and the Arroyo Seco. But last month, in an apparent mix-up, the 60-foot-long, city-sponsored mural was whitewashed out of existence.

As part of her campaign to battle childhood obesity, First Lady Michelle Obama visited the site of a future grocery store in Inglewood on Wednesday and spoke about the importance of bringing fresh food to disadvantaged communities. The market, which will open in April in an empty warehouse on South Prairie Avenue, is part of a statewide push to reduce obesity by attracting grocers to low-income neighborhoods and making healthy food more accessible. "I'm here today because I believe every family in our country should have access to healthy food," she said to a group of community residents and leaders.

Retail giant Wal-Mart's plan to bring a grocery store to Chinatown got another testy airing Tuesday as speakers on both sides of the issue squared off in a crowded hearing room at Los Angeles City Hall. Community activists, some wearing red T-shirts, urged the City Council's Planning and Land Use Committee to move forward with a one-year ban on large national chain stores in the historic district. The halt would give the Chinatown community and city leaders time to consider making the ban permanent, speakers told committee members.

I just finished "Did Markets Shelve Price-War Plans?" (March 29) and I still see that the powers that be who are directing these establishments have no idea what brings satisfied customers back to their stores. When I go to the grocery store I want to buy what is on my list. Therefore, No. 1 in my requirement is availability of the product. If I want something, I will pay the price; if I don't want it, free is too much. The second thing I want is friendly, helpful staff. Because of the ill-fated strike, I left Vons and started shopping for most of my needs at Stater Bros.
