Re "Getting a clue about flu shots," Column, Oct. 25 Similar to David Lazarus, I went to my local CVS last week for a flu shot and was told that it was not covered by my insurance. Because my insurance policy is a new one, I agreed and paid $31.99 for my shot (my husband, on Medicare, got his for free). After reading Lazarus' column, I called my insurance company, Aetna, and was told that flu shots were absolutely covered at CVS and most other pharmacies under my plan, and that I shouldn't have been charged anything.

The former Marina del Rey headquarters of automotive legend Carroll Shelby was sold along with two office buildings for $10.7 million. Santa Monica investment firm Luzzatto Co. bought the properties on Princeton Drive from a limited liability company, real estate brokerage Lee & Associates said. The previous owners acquired them in early 2012 for $6.7 million and set out to remodel the buildings and reposition them as offices for creative firms. The buildings at 1038 and 1040 Princeton are still vacant, but the former Shelby headquarters at 1042 Princeton is fully leased to online vendor Blowfish Shoes, architecture firm Mix StudioWorks and film production company Kennedy Marshall Co. Built in the 1950s, the buildings are made of red brick and have high ceilings, Lee & Associates said.

It's not surprising that the Annenberg Foundation's plans for an expansive interpretive center in the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve has stirred controversy. The cherished 640-acre reserve that stretches from Westchester to Marina del Rey has passionate advocates who often disagree on the best course for its restoration. One element of the Annenberg plan that has come under fire is an animal adoption and care facility. That would be a welcome service in almost any other location in the Los Angeles area, but it doesn't fit into a preservation scheme for Ballona and should not be part of a final design plan.
