It took a while for Joseph C. Lopez to find his place in life. When he did, the young man everyone called Joey asked his older brother, Arthur Pratti, to go with him to the Marine Corps recruitment office. An Air Force veteran, Pratti said Lopez, of the Antelope Valley community of Rosamond, was "trying to find his way. " "It took him a while to find his niche in the world. Before he joined the Marines, he was doing a lot of little things," said Pratti, 30. "I wouldn't say he had a troubled past, but he never really found his niche till he became a Marine.

No More Neon: Monty's Steakhouse, the Westwood fixture set atop the Westwood Center building at 1100 Glendon Ave., has closed. Arden Realty Inc. purchased the building in early '98 with plans to renovate it completely from the outside in. Monty's had been entrenched in the penthouse since 1969 (the structure dates from '65). During its reign, its neon sign became a landmark and its dark interior saw lots of interesting events, including Snoop Doggy Dogg's acquittal party.

The Palomar Pomerado Hospital District, dissatisfied with depending on blood trucked from an hour away in San Diego, will set up a North County blood bank in February. The district's board of directors made the decision Tuesday and hopes to enlist the cooperation of Tri-City Hospital in Oceanside, North County's other major medical center. Palomar officials expect that a North County bank will attract new donors, who would be more likely to give blood to a community-based operation.

As far back as Fannie Johnson can remember--and that's all the way back to World War I--her family has dutifully heeded the nation's call to arms. "I was little, but I remember my relatives being in that war," said Johnson, sitting erect in her favorite chair by the front window. Fighting in France during the war was Ernest Johnson, a fellow destined to be her first husband.

The image is of a lonely Korean woman in her late 60s, working in a back street bar in Shanghai. It could be Manila. Or Taipei. She is quiet. No one asks how she got there, so no one answers. The image and the silence haunt Bok Lim Kim, a La Jolla resident who has for a decade tried to raise awareness of sex crimes committed against Korean and other Asian women during World War II. The euphemism was "comfort girls." In reality, they were sex slaves.
