Los Angeles lost a great man when John C. Argue died (obituary, Aug. 11). His life is a testament to the power of one. His leadership made a difference in scores of institutions, including USC, the Los Angeles Sports Council and the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. His arsenal was his vast network of friends and acquaintances, whom he connected with each other when they asked or when he saw an opportunity. His intelligence, humor, integrity, selflessness and down-to-earth manner contributed to his influence and his impact.

Jane G. Pisano, USC's senior vice president for external relations, has been named executive director of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, effective the fall of 2001. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is expected to confirm Pisano, 57, a museum trustee, as successor to James L. Powell, 65, who has led the museum since 1994. Powell announced in January that he would step down as soon as a successor was found.

As a USC Trojan, I thank Maria Obenhaus for her concern (letter, Feb. 16) but take exception to her criticism of L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky's actions regarding the NFL and the Coliseum. Yaroslavsky is indeed a true, blue Bruin, but he has also been consistently protective of USC's interests during negotiations with Ed Roski and Eli Broad. JANE G. PISANO, Senior VP External Relations, USC

Two new regional agencies, with far-reaching power to manage growth and improve environmental quality in the Los Angeles area, were proposed Tuesday by the Los Angeles 2000 Committee, a blue-ribbon group that has been studying the city's problems for 2 1/2 years. "The goals cannot be achieved without making changes in the way we govern ourselves," committee President Jane G. Pisano told a news conference at Belmont High School, as the panel's 96-page report was presented to Mayor Tom Bradley.

OPINION
April 3, 1994
Ron Harris' column, "Between the Plan and Reality . . . Falls the Shadow" (March 25), derides Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas' efforts to plan on grounds that the capital necessary to make plans real is often lacking. He belabors the obvious point that plans themselves do not solve urban problems; people do. Only in passing does Harris note the councilman's efforts to involve citizens in planning and governing their own communities. In my view, the interesting story in the 8th District is about the Empowerment Congress, an initiative of the councilman's which enables citizens to build communities and to shape and implement a strategic vision for change.
