Hawthorne Mayor Larry Guidi, who earlier this year launched a correspondence with President Clinton about his city's financial woes, has put pen to paper again--this time chastising Gov. Pete Wilson for declining to hold a town hall meeting in the city. Guidi wrote Wilson in July asking the governor to come to Hawthorne sometime in the coming months and address a consortium of local city leaders on such issues as crime and education in California.

The mayor of Hawthorne has been indicted for allegedly failing to disclose that he receiveda cash payment from the owner of a local gymnasium, the third elected official in the South Bay city to be accused of criminal activity in the last five years. Billed as a reform candidate after the city's previous mayor was arrested for stealing an industrial-size food mixer from the local school district, Mayor Daniel Juarez took $2,000 from the owner of a Gold's Gym and deposited the money in his personal checking account, the indictment alleges.

But the Hawthorne police aren't so sure. "You have a right as a citizen to detain criminals," Hawthorne Police Capt. Richard Prentice said.
