Michael (Irish) O'Farrell, a Hells Angels leader, received the club's traditional funeral honors Saturday as bikers wearing jackets emblazoned with a winged skull escorted his body to a cemetery. O'Farrell, believed by law enforcement officials to be second in the Hells Angels hierarchy only to the motorcycle club's spiritual leader, Ralph (Sonny) Barger Jr., died during a bloody bar brawl on Tuesday. O'Farrell, 40, who along with Barger was awaiting sentencing on federal explosives convictions, was stabbed in the neck, chest and back, as well as being shot four times from behind, according to the Alameda County coroner's office.

SEVEN YEARS AGO, HAD I ENCOUNTERED THE woman I am today, I would have pitied her: long sleeves and an ankle-length skirt in the middle of summer; no driving, writing, talking on the phone or cooking from sundown Friday until sundown Saturday; recently married to a man she'd never touched--not so much as a peck on the cheek--until after the wedding. I'd have cringed and dismissed this woman as a Repressed Religious Nut.

William Reagh, who recorded Los Angeles in black and white photographs for more than 50 years, has died. He was 81. Reagh died Wednesday at his Silver Lake home after a long battle with cancer, his wife, Harriet, said Thursday. Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Harvey has called Reagh "a sort of Ansel Adams of the Angels."

Los Angeles on Tuesday begins a far-reaching overhaul of its city government, voting for a new mayor and controller, and voting as well for city attorney and to fill more than half the City Council and nearly half the school board and Community College District board of trustees. Nonpartisan city and school elections differ from California legislative and congressional elections, in which runoffs between the two highest vote-getters are now guaranteed. In Tuesday's election, a candidate can avoid a runoff by winning more than 50% of the vote.

Sue Herera and Maria Bartiromo are two of the best-known faces in financial journalism, a world once dominated by white men in suits. Both women, in recent interviews, expressed their thoughts on the stock market, the booming demand for business news and their ever-busier lives. Sue Herera, 41, grew up in Brentwood. Her father was a shoe wholesaler and her mother a homemaker.

I am writing in reference to the article about the Century Council's Parish Pledge program (Sept. 11). I appreciate the praise for the council's joining anti-drunken driving effort with the Division for Hispanic Affairs of the California Catholic Conference. But there were a few unintentional inaccuracies. First, the headline--"Anti-Alcohol Pact Promoted by Parishes." This program is not anti-alcohol, it is anti-alcohol abuse . Second, the article does not mention that the Century Council is entirely funded by some, but not all, members of the licensed beverage industry.
