Nobody told the Lopez family there was a risk that the two-bedroom duplex they bought in Lynwood might someday stand in six feet of water. Five years ago, as the family carefully calculated whether they could afford the mortgage payments, nobody told them they would someday be required to buy flood insurance to offset that risk. Then, on Wednesday, the Lopezes learned that like thousands of other home and business owners in Southeast Los Angeles County, they are about to be forced to buy federal flood insurance.

Bowing to objections from homeowners, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has rejected a proposed $24-per-household tax that would have helped pay for the upkeep of some parks and public swimming pools. The decision came Thursday after the board heard testimony that the tax would place an unfair burden on the 375,000 residents of the unincorporated areas who would pay it.

Re "County to Seek Tax Hike for Hospitals," July 30: I find it appalling that in arguing for the support of a tax increase to maintain L.A. County emergency room services, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky would make the statement that we all are "one drunk driver away, one gunshot away, one stabbing away from a trauma center."
