In the wake of a drive-by shooting of a star athlete in Norwalk, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will send extra deputies to the area's gang hot spots this weekend to prevent retaliation. Deputies will enforce a 10 p.m.-to-sunrise curfew in the south end of Norwalk and the northern part of Artesia, where two rival gangs, Varrio and Chivas, have fought over the last year. At a special meeting Friday to discuss gang-related problems, members of the Artesia and Norwalk city councils expressed fear that there might be some violence because of the killing of Juan Enriquez.

"This is a nice place, nice people living here," Paseka Teo, 17, says, pointing to homes on neat lawns bordering clean streets. His friend, Ernie Gutierrez, 16, says, "It's like a Leave-it-to-Beaver neighborhood. There are really no gangs here. But the overpass over there is a good place to stay away from." Although they do not belong to gangs, Teo and Gutierrez, popular and respected sophomores at John Glenn High School, have been touched by gang violence.

A 20-year-old reputed gang member from Fullerton was arrested Monday in last week's murder of a popular high school football and wrestling captain in Norwalk, authorities said. Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said they are also seeking a 17-year-old in the slaying, but investigators believe the suspect in custody, Gilbert Munoz, was the triggerman who gunned down Juan (Chaka) Enriquez, 18, last Tuesday a block from his home. Enriquez was on his way home from John Glenn High School for lunch.

A 20-year-old Fullerton man who was arrested in connection with the fatal drive-by shooting last week of a Norwalk high school star athlete was released Tuesday because of lack of evidence, sheriff's deputies said. Gilbert Munoz, who was arrested on Monday, was freed when he provided homicide detectives with an alibi that accounted for his whereabouts at the time Juan Enriquez was gunned down on May 9 a block from his home. Enriquez, 18, a football and wrestling star at John Glenn High School, was on his way home from school for lunch.

Norwalk residents soon will be able to flush with a clear conscience. The city will offer water-conserving toilets free to residents next month as part of a pilot program to conserve water. About 1,700 low-flush toilets will be available Oct. 7 at John Glenn High School at 13520 Shoemaker Ave. The toilets use less than half the amount of water necessary for traditional toilets, thereby cutting water bills by up to a third, officials said.

Re "Space Age Pioneer Glenn Returns to Orbit," Oct. 30: John Glenn is a thoroughly admirable fellow, but his trip into space is an obvious ploy by the manned-space bureaucracy to keep the big bucks flowing from Congress. Enough, already! CHET BRISCO Tustin Good for Glenn, but let's keep it in prospective. Even legends don't last long. I too am from Ohio and was substitute teaching at John Glenn High School a couple of years ago. I asked students in several classes: What year was the Glenn launch?

They're not exactly rioting, but hungry students stuck in Norwalk-La Mirada district high schools for lunch are clamoring for more fast food. Ever since the district restricted high school students to their campuses during school hours this year, they have wanted cafeteria food dumped in favor of french fries, hamburgers and pizza. Taco Bell started supplying burritos this month to three of the district's four high schools.
