Re "Clinton's Mexico Trip Offers Fence-Mending Opportunity," editorial, April 21: It is difficult to see how it will be possible for President Clinton to do much "fence-mending" with Mexico, given its leaders' most recent comments and actions. Mexican officials insist that their sovereignty be scrupulously honored while at the same time dismissing our right to enact and enforce laws that protect our sovereignty. Mexico can't have it both ways. In response to our new immigration laws, the foreign ministry said that Mexico will not tolerate foreign forces dictating and enacting laws on Mexicans.

On the Nov. 15 article, "Eye to Eye in Search of Justice," about the careo [or face-off], I found the words "medieval" and "primitive" describing some of Mexico's legal proceedings. Surely Mexico can and must modernize, but what about the U.S.? Isn't the death penalty primitive and medieval? A little more self-criticism on the part of Americans and a bit less patronizing of the neighbor to the south would do this country lots of good too. Jose Nuno Los Angeles

To the great surprise of no one, Miguel Herrera, the interim coach of Mexico's World Cup team, has seen his stay extended at least through this summer's tournament in Brazil. Teams owners in Mexico's domestic Liga MX, many of whom are on the board of directors of Mexico's soccer federation, met late Monday and decided to keep Herrera with the national team when his season as coach with Club America ends. The federation left open the possibility that Herrera could stay in the post through the 2018 World Cup as well.

U.S. and Mexican officials Wednesday resolved a cross-border long-haul trucking dispute that will lift punitive tariffs on about $2.4 billion in U.S. products. Under the agreement, which ends a nearly two-decade ban on Mexican trucks entering the United States, Mexico will halve the punitive customs duties within the next 10 days and remove the rest by the end of the summer. "The agreements signed today are a win for roadway safety and they are a win for trade," U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said.

Your recent article "Paralyzed in Mexico" was of special interest to me. I have been involved in a similar situation as a firefighter and friend, and understand the value of many years of friendship with the people and the firefighters of Mexico, which they and many others, including the California Fire Service, have developed. The efforts of Dick Vic, his wife, Carol, and Jack Stubbs on behalf of an injured neighbor, Edward Axton, were as private citizens, but their affiliation with the fire service and the ongoing interaction which occurs through the Bombero Program and many other programs were of untold help in their efforts.

HERMOSILLO, Mexico - The temperature was climbing past 100 degrees, humidity not far behind. Mexican actor Diego Luna, in the director's chair for a change, was trying to re-create 1960s California on a set in this industrial city in Mexico's northern Sonora state. The performers' wigs were wilting, their brows brilliant with sweaty shine. Vintage suits in unbreathable polyester double-knit didn't help. Yet tempers remained surprisingly calm as scenes were shot over and over.

WASHINGTON -- President Obama is scheduled to travel to Mexico and Costa Rica in early May to push for stronger economic ties, the White House announced Wednesday. In trip scheduled for May 2-4, Obama will meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who was elected last year and took office in December. He last met with Obama at the White House in November. From there, Obama will head to Costa Rica, where President Laura Chinchilla will host a meeting of several Central American leaders.
