The burned-out hulk of the Hotel Ferraro, about 20 blocks west of downtown Los Angeles' grander hotels, is an example of how the forces shaping the city are beyond the control of the people who are supposed to be in charge. The specific force represented by the Ferraro is real estate. The owner of this Westlake district hotel wants to tear it down and sell the property.

Five years ago, Syed Ali bought a run-down, four-story hotel on the edge of MacArthur Park that had been scorched by fire and infested with rats. After pumping $1.3 million into the hotel's renovation, Ali put up a sign in his office that read, "I do not look back!" That, he says, is what he tells his tenants--85 ex-convicts.

Eventually, nearly all imprisoned convicts return to the community. For those without jobs or skills, returning to crime may be the path of least resistance--a path leading back behind bars. That's why innovative programs like Hotel Ferraro (Metro, Nov. 2) are so vital in the fight against crime. It's not enough to supervise ex-offenders. Society must provide meaningful alternatives to crime: training, counseling, employment. The Foundation for People has helped many Ferraro residents find such opportunities.

A spectacular fire swept through the fourth floor and attic of the Hotel Ferraro near MacArthur Park on Thursday, forcing 85 state prison parolees who live there and 38 other paying residents to find other quarters. A ground-floor tenant, who slept through most of the blaze, was treated for smoke inhalation. Two firefighters suffered wrist burns, and a third firefighter suffered a sprained ankle.

When Los Angeles City Councilman Nate Holden flew to Korea four years ago, he was supposed to be forging bonds with a sister city, hobnobbing with politicos and wooing foreign investors. But the obscure 1991 mission to Seoul and Pusan is being best remembered these days for a series of embarrassing pictures that turned up in the public record showing the lawmaker and his aides being entertained by scantily clad women dancing atop tables.
