Your tribute to community activist Juanita Tate brought me to tears (obituary, July 8). South Los Angeles has lost a champion, and the entire city has lost an innovative and passionate advocate for economic justice. I will miss her strength, leadership and friendship. The best way to honor her memory will be to continue her work to bring quality housing, jobs, financial services, schools and recreation to South Los Angeles. Mary M. Lee Los Angeles

Regarding the article on the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank garden ("Green Dreams," by Emily Green, Oct. 31), my constituents may disagree about gardens versus parks, but they are united in seeing the land use of this property enhance the value of the neighborhoods in which they live and work. The attempt to polarize them and demean several people on both sides, including a great community advocate such as the late Juanita Tate, is unforgivable. Jan Perry Councilwoman Ninth District I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and have had a community garden for more than 20 years.

On the day after the election, the smartest politicians are already planning for the next election. Let others celebrate or mourn Tuesday's results. The real pros know that politics is a continuing process. For them, Tuesday was just preparation for the campaigns to come.

In grocery-starved South Los Angeles, where low-fat milk, fresh vegetables and unspoiled meat are as scarce as good jobs, the Food 4 Less under construction at Slauson and Central avenues is a tribute to the tireless advocacy of Juanita Tate, founder of Concerned Citizens of South-Central Los Angeles, who died last week of a stroke at 66. Tate launched Concerned Citizens in the early 1980s to fight city efforts to build a trash incinerating plant.

Reporters Greg Braxton and Claudia Puig, in citing a dozen television and radio stations, seem to have gone to considerable effort in their survey of how L.A.'s electronic journalism covers our diverse communities. Their finding: Our ethnic urban communities still wait for someone to report on the real news and issues affecting them. The Times reporters might have reached a different conclusion had they looked through reviews and clippings from their own newspaper.
