As a Thai American woman who has family in and has visited Thailand, I too am concerned with the country's well-being ("The Water's Hot This Time," by David Gritten, Feb. 13). However, what the crew of the movie "The Beach" is doing to Maya Beach is not destroying its ecosystem or permanently altering its landscape. The environmentalists in Thailand should be using their energies to solve some of the country's more pressing environmental issues such as overwhelming smog and traffic congestion in the city areas and trash-burning.

Storm clouds gathered ominously over Leonardo DiCaprio. He was aboard a luxury yacht, moored off this idyllic island in the Andaman Sea, resting between scenes of a $45-million 20th Century Fox movie, "The Beach." Minutes ago the hot sun shone in a cobalt blue sky; the glass-smooth sea's clear waters were turquoise, turning to jade green in the shallows near Phi Phi Le, where they lapped at fine whitish sand. Just another day in paradise, right? Not quite.

A racing wooden roller coaster debuting this spring at a Chinese theme park will feature a first-of-its-kind element in which riders in dueling trains reach out toward each other and attempt to exchange high-fives. Dubbed the High Five by the American ride designers, the wooden coaster opening in April at Happy Valley Wuhan will be officially known as Dragon Wings. Riders traveling in parallel trains along banked tracks during the unique High Five element will tilt inward 90 degrees, allowing their upward raised hands to almost touch during the near-miss moment.

The environmental health division of Orange County's Health Care Agency performs routine, unannounced inspections of the county's more than 11,000 restaurants, markets and other food establishments. When conditions violate state law or applicable county and municipal codes, inspectors can issue notices of violation. If inspectors find during an announced recheck that conditions have not been corrected, they can effectively close the business by suspending its health permit.
