City Councilman Richard Alatorre said Wednesday that he is taking five weeks off for surgery to correct what his aides called "very serious" stomach and esophageal problems caused by a ruptured diaphragm. The operation is scheduled for Friday, and the 54-year-old Eastside councilman expects to be hospitalized for about a week. "The councilman has had a history of stomach problems," said Luisa Campano, Alatorre's deputy chief of staff.

Los Angeles City Council President John Ferraro disclosed to his colleagues Friday that he has cancer of the spleen and will work a lighter schedule when he begins chemotherapy next week. "What's strange about it is I feel well," Ferraro said. Doctors discovered the cancer in August, Ferraro said, and he has been undergoing another form of treatment. When that did not work, doctors scheduled chemotherapy. His treatments start on Monday.

Los Angeles City Councilman Gilbert W. Lindsay apparently suffered a stroke over the weekend and on Tuesday remained in the intensive care unit at Daniel Freeman Hospital in Inglewood, his office said. The 89-year-old councilman, who has been in failing health in recent years, has been paralyzed on the right side since he was stricken in his home Sunday night, according to his aide, Bob Gay. Gay said Lindsay is unable to speak and has been drifting in and out of consciousness.

The empty chair in the Los Angeles City Council chamber is becoming hard to ignore. The chair belongs to Councilman Gilbert Lindsay, 89, paralyzed by a stroke and unable to speak. He breathes through a tube inserted in his windpipe. Visitors to his room at Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital in Inglewood report that he stares blankly at the ceiling. Occasionally Lindsay moves his head when his name is called. He has been that way since he was stricken the weekend of Sept. 1.
