Jim Stewart, 44, community service officer with the San Diego city schools, never did get over Vietnam. That's what you were supposed to do about that place, 20-odd years ago, just forget about it. You were better off just blocking it out. Vietnam sucked up thousands of lives and told America that maybe it wasn't so tough after all. You were supposed to carry on and not look back. You were supposed to be strong. "I was in love the first time I walked in the door," Jim Stewart says.

Jim Stewart ranks high among Seattle's coffee elite. He founded what is now Seattle's Best Coffee in the late 1960s, when only a handful of U.S. roasters envisioned coffee as a gourmet drink. But when he travels to Costa Rica with his wife, she is the coffee maven. "I was born in a coffee tree," said Luz Marina Trujillo, who hails from a coffee family in Colombia. She has worked the last 22 years turning a mediocre coffee farm in Costa Rica into one of the country's most respected coffee estates.

The ouches of summertime can be banished almost as quickly as they are acquired, veterans of the shoreline say. "It's like a poached egg," said diver Jim Stewart of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in explaining the treatment of a round-stingray injury. Just as a poaching egg visibly changes composition, the protein in the stingray venom is broken down by heat. Soak an injured foot in hot water for about half an hour and "the pain just miraculously goes away," he said.

In your piece about "The Insider" ("Smoke Lingers as 'The Insider' Does a Slow Burn," by Paul Lieberman and Myron Levin, Dec. 3), you report that the movie gives me credit for things I did not do. It does. I have always acknowledged that. But you also report that I should not be given credit for things I did in fact do. You do that because your reporters never asked me about these events, nor did they check their facts. Case in point: the Unabomber story. You credit "CBS Evening News" correspondent Jim Stewart with the "scoop."

Jim Stewart, 44, community service officer with the San Diego city schools, never did get over Vietnam. That's what you were supposed to do, 20-odd years ago, just forget about it. Lots of guys did that, of course. Vietnam was another life, another dream, or nightmare, or hell. You were better off just blocking it out. I was in love the first time I walked in the door, Stewart says. She has got to be one of the most beautiful women I have ever laid eyes on.

Esperanza linebacker Jim Stewart has heard them all, folks. Every wisecrack. Every insult. Every smart-aleck remark. Yeah, he rubs black paint around his eyes before each game. What's it to you? "You get that from your mom's make-up kit?" Stewart never comments. Oh, sometimes he bursts out laughing and sometimes he gets angry, but he holds his tongue. There are other ways to get even. "Hey, Batman." Even his coaches get in a shot from time to time.

News of a weekend fatal shark attack off the Ventura County coast traveled slowly down to San Diego. And, when it got here, it caused hardly more than a ripple of concern. In San Diego County, most lifeguard agencies were unaware of the Ventura County shark attack Monday afternoon--possibly the first such fatality in California in four years--and those who had heard the story said there was no cause for alarm.

To understand why Northern Ireland's conflict has defied solution for so long, take the road less traveled and meet the divided people of Moy. The popular image of Northern Ireland is of urban Belfast battlegrounds, where high steel barricades daubed with tribal slogans make divisions between Catholic and Protestant immediate and obvious.

The San Fernando Valley Economic Alliance is presenting a daylong conference on business improvement districts June 26. Business improvement districts provide a means for merchants to provide for improved security, landscaping, marketing and storefront refurbishments. They are generally funded by either a property tax surcharge or assessments on local businesses.
