Inside the Coffee Beanery's unassuming headquarters, where the air is thick with the fragrance of coffee, one white wall seems a little off. It's dotted with picture-hanging hooks--but no pictures hang from them. The artwork that once was there now graces a new Coffee Beanery franchisee's store--on loan from company President JoAnne Shaw, one of her many efforts to help her franchisees succeed. "I try to share as much as I possibly can.

For the first time in its 40-year history, the International Franchise Assn. has named a woman, coffee entrepreneur JoAnne Shaw, to head the world's largest and oldest franchising organization. Shaw, the 56-year-old president of Coffee Beanery Ltd., a Flushing, Mich.-based chain with 200 outlets nationwide and sales of about $50 million annually, said she plans to work hard to bring more women into franchising.

The Laguna Playhouse scores points for both ambition (of a sort) and populism with "Who's Hot, Who's Not," the new comedy by Sherwood Kiraly. This is an ingratiating audience-pleaser, commissioned by the theater--that's the ambition angle--and adapted from Laguna resident Kiraly's own 1998 novel. Not the least of its virtues: It's full of verbal jokes that don't go clunk, even when the narrative itself makes threatening clunking noises.

Re "Handicap-Parking Crackdown on Target," Sept. 22: My wife and I are in our late 70s. She is badly afflicted with arthritis. She has already had a hip replaced. When she has a good day, we may go shopping. Her two-hour stroll around the mall can be covered by me and many other people in about 20 minutes. She wishes to be as independent as she can; she is just slower and rests more. And those are the good days. I don't use the marked spaces when driving without my wife. Gregg H. Wright Fallbrook Christine Hanley's article is well-written and an eye-opener, even for me, a person with a disability who needs a handicap parking space for my van's side-loading ramp.
