If you choose to live in a way-out suburban subdivision, are you more likely to get fat? A number of planners, health officials and others have complained in recent years that sprawl discourages walking and, therefore, encourages obesity. But two researchers from Oregon State University looked at the relationship between sprawl and neighborhood choice, based on residents' weight. They concluded there's no real connection between living in the boonies and becoming overweight.

As part of a campaign to enhance and preserve neighborhoods citywide, the Planning Commission Friday made 50 recommendations for east Anaheim. Planning Commission Chairman Bob Messe said most of east Anaheim is "lovely, but some areas need improvement. . . . If we are able to get all these recommendations in, it will be an improved area and a model for the rest of the city." A blighted area south of the Riverside Freeway and east of State College Boulevard is among those that would benefit.

April 13, 1986 | BOB FINDLE, Bob Findle, a real estate agent and resident of University Heights, does most of his business in the North Park area
The metro neighborhoods of San Diego have been a battlefield for the last few years, with developers and construction companies on one side and homeowners on the other. In addition to living in one of these areas, I am a real estate agent who works in the neighborhoods--North Park, University Heights, Normal Heights, Hillcrest, Golden Hill--and I find myself listening to both sides and often being asked for an opinion or a solution.
