Ray Chavira, co-founder of the Los Angeles Alcohol Policy Coalition and a similar body for the Antelope Valley, has pressured local governments to use zoning powers to limit new alcohol outlets as well as to regulate those already in business.

Los Angeles County supervisors tentatively approved a tougher alcohol sales ordinance Tuesday, a decade after it was first proposed by an Antelope Valley resident. The ordinance revisions must return to the board for a second vote, which planning officials said probably would not occur for a month.

The Los Angeles County Commission on Alcoholism is raising objections to a plan to create a well-paid supervisorial position in the health department at a time when a hiring freeze and threatened layoffs are plaguing the county work force. Other county sources said administrators cleared the way for the new job so it could be filled by an acquaintance of Supervisor Ed Edelman. In a Sept.

Members of the Los Angeles County Commission on Alcoholism have read with concern your editorial ("What Could Be Wrong With Alcohol Taxes?" Oct. 10) regarding alcohol taxes. Local officials such as the Board of Supervisors, Los Angeles City Council and all of the Health Department commissions have gone on record to support Prop. 134 because of the important local needs not covered by the state budgets for a number of years. As your editorial indicates, the money raised would be spent on many important needs and it earmarks the money raised for those important needs.

KLSX-FM management may feel running spots for Jagermeister Liqueur is "in good taste," but its maverick action in being the first English-language broadcaster in the Los Angeles area to blatantly disregard a decades-old voluntary ban on TV and radio broadcasters is clearly not a wise use of the public's airwaves ("KLSX Airs Ads for Liqueur Over Objections of Some," Calendar, Dec. 12). The article quotes the "Real Radio" general manager as asking why radio should be left out, presumably from the profits of pushing hard liquor, now that the Distilled Spirits Council has abandoned the high ground.

Shamelessness in the Legislature is seldom so evident as in the Senate's recent joking and sampling of whiskey-soaked cake, liquor-filled truffles, and liquor-loaded chocolate bottles in miniature as it voted 21-17 to legally hike permissible alcohol in candy, cake and chewing gum 0.5% to 5%. Your article (Sept. 5), "Liquor-Laced Candy Measure Sent to Governor," cogently reviewed the blatant economic interests of out-of-state pushers who want California to join the four other states permitting 5% ethyl alcohol in specified confections, Nevada being the nearest.

Congratulations to Lynwood's City Council for unanimously sustaining (on appeal) its Planning Commission's denial of a takeout beer/wine permit application for a Long Beach Boulevard meat market located in an area blighted with booze outlets of all types. The application was strongly protested by church and law enforcement leaders, as well as other concerned citizens. Unfortunately, the matter became an issue partly because of the tiny spacing distance of 300 feet between one off-sale outlet and another in Lynwood's recently enacted ordinance.

Katherine Keho Pike, who had teamed up with her late husband to combat alcoholism, has died at the age of 87. Pike, former chairwoman of the Los Angeles County Commission on Alcoholism, died Oct. 18 at the San Marino home where she had lived for 60 years. Never an alcoholic herself, she well knew of the problems of the disease because of her mother's fatal addiction and her recovering alcoholic husband, oil drilling tycoon Thomas P. Pike. He died in 1993.
