Two bicyclists were shot in a robbery attempt Monday night, leaving one dead and the other in critical condition, authorities said. Juan Manuel Ruiz Aquino, 23, and his brother, Aurelio Jimenez, 27, both of Santa Ana, were riding home about 10 p.m. after shopping at a grocery store when they were approached by a man at 4th and Townsend streets, police said. Witnesses said the man, who police believe may be a gang member, tried to rob the brothers.

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.

The origins of Dumb Starbucks , the seemingly rogue coffee shop that opened in the Los Feliz neighborhood in Los Angeles over the weekend, have been revealed: Nathan Fielder of the Comedy Central show "Nathan For You" said Monday that he's the owner of the faux cafe.  The store, which has been serving out-the-door lines for the last several days, has attracted attention for its storefront with a nearly exact copy of a legitimate Starbucks Corp....

You can buy gas, get cash from your bank account and pick up an airline boarding pass without ever coming into contact with another human being. Now you can avoid people when you pay at the grocery store. Supermarkets are joining the self-serve movement, adding lanes where shoppers can scan and sack their purchases, no checker required. That has union officials worried.

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.

Dekopons, the so-called Sumo mandarins , have hit the market in a big way this year. There was a scattering of them available last year, but now, for the first time, they are in pretty wide circulation. You can find almost everything you need to know about them in David Karp's stories over the last couple of years. The guy who knows more about fruit than anyone should says Dekopons are the most delicious citrus he's ever tasted. But I've been hearing lots of reports of pretty extreme variation in quality this year.

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.

On Tuesday, a committee of the Los Angeles City Council will consider a proposal by Councilman Ed Reyes that would place a hold on new chain-store development in Chinatown, a move that specifically would halt the planned construction of aWal-Mart grocery store in the neighborhood. There is substantial neighborhood opposition toWal-Mart, and Reyes' motion is an understandable response. Nevertheless, the council should reject it and allow the project to go forward. That's not becauseWal-Martwould be such a blessing, or because Chinatown so desperately needs this store.
