I have worked to improve San Diego for 32 years and I have never seen or heard anyone as arrogant as Peter Navarro. He has the gall to call Herb Cawthorne, the Urban League president, a "sellout," and say that he is not in touch with the grass roots. He says these things just because Mr. Cawthorne's views differ with his. But I would ask, "What does Mr. Navarro know about the grass-roots black community? What does he know about Herb Cawthorne or the Urban League?" Judging from his appearance at the Catfish Club, I don't think he knows anything about this community.

We have ignored our children far too long, and the seeds of this neglect are visiting us on the streets. Something has to be done. That is why I was so pleased to see what the Urban League of San Diego is trying to do. I called the Urban League to express my encouragement, and I discovered more impressive information. It took Herb Cawthorne and others more than six months to work out the relationships to bury the division and design a major effort of cooperation to deal with gang and youth employment.

The San Diego Urban League, claiming "fraud and deceit" by former President Herb Cawthorne, sued him Friday to recoup more than $13,000 in league funds that Cawthorne allegedly diverted for personal use. The Superior Court lawsuit accuses Cawthorne of spending Urban League money on airline tickets, hotels, meals, auto expenses, dental work and a $1,395 painting.

Herb Cawthorne, the fiery president of the San Diego Urban League who became San Diego's most visible black leader in less than two years here, resigned suddenly at an emergency meeting of the organization's board of directors Wednesday night, Urban League leaders said Thursday.

"We are going to issue a statement to the press in the morning," McQuater said Thursday.

Herb Cawthorne, who resigned in a veil of secrecy as president of the San Diego Urban League, was named vice president of the San Diego Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. Cawthorne's appointment was announced late in the afternoon and came as a surprise. Cawthorne said last month that he was founding a development company to revitalize the downtown and Southeast areas of San Diego. It was not clear Thursday whether he would continue with the previously announced Cawthorne Co.

The story on the San Diego Urban League president, Herb Cawthorne, was a good one, except it was dominated by interviews with his detractors ("Jury Is Split on Urban League Chief's First Year," Sept. 2). Cawthorne is provocative. This laid-back town needs its toes stepped on. It is infatuated with itself. It has fine vintage and involved leadership. It also has too many newly self-elected elitists. Anyone who says that Cawthorne "has sold out" is repeating the Uncle Tom racism.
