Re "Rocket Engineer, Activist Publisher Kennedy Dies," July 2: When I volunteered to write and do page layout for Ralph Kennedy on the Fullerton Observer during the mid-1980s, I thought my pay was the sandwiches from Giovanni's he and his wife, Natalie, would serve up at lunch or the occasional ad Ralph would run for my business at no charge. As I get older, I realize the payoff was much better than that. Ralph taught me the lesson of pride in one's community and the spirit and joy of volunteerism and activism.

The Studio City Residents Assn. is complaining about an outdoor dining area that a local restaurant recently built on Ventura Boulevard. Tony Lucente, president of the residents group, said that city rules prohibit the permanent fencing that encloses the patio dining area of Art's Deli on Ventura Boulevard west of Laurel Canyon Boulevard. The fenced-off area narrows the sidewalk and obstructs pedestrians, Lucente said.

Los Angeles city officials and residents of a barricaded Sepulveda neighborhood are going back to the drawing board to search for street barriers that will keep out drug traffic, pose no threat in accidents and still not be eyesores. The neighborhood has been temporarily barricaded with wooden sawhorses since November in a police plan to eliminate widespread drug dealing, but residents dislike the sawhorses and permanent barriers are needed.

Organized labor won a small but bitter struggle against the normally sympathetic Roman Catholic Archdiocese in Los Angeles on Tuesday when a three-member panel upheld the results of an election in which 128 archdiocese cemetery workers narrowly voted for union representation. The panel, whose members were selected by the archdiocese and the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union, ruled 2 to 1 in favor of February's vote in which cemetery workers voted 66 to 62 to join the union.

I am writing this letter to make some comments regarding the varying degrees of recognition and coverage The Times has been providing to various announced Democratic candidates for their party's presidential nomination. According to The Times, for example, former Irvine Mayor Larry Agran is not a candidate to be taken seriously, since he has yet to attain national recognition and, therefore, the reporter doesn't feel compelled to even mention him as one of the candidates in The Times edition of the county in which Agran lives.

Thank you for explaining the issues regarding the sewer service charge refunds to be paid by the City of Los Angeles (Metro/Valley, Aug. 19). You are correct in stating the difficulties to reach the thousands of individuals eligible for this refund. The city's staff has to manually review thousands of maps covering over 6,500 miles of sewers and compare them with water customer lists from the Department of Water and Power which contains over 500,000 names and addresses. So far, $5 million has been authorized by the City Council for fiscal year 1991-92.
