Re "L.A. Unified Appoints 11 Leaders for Subdistricts," June 16: After concluding a nationwide search through 300 applications, nine come from L.A. Unified and the other two from Compton Unified?

It's great to know the "good ol' boys" system is still alive and well. SCOTT WILLIAM DRUE Redondo Beach Excuse me? Deputy Supt. Liliam Castillo "will suffer a slight pay cut," receiving only $150,000 a year.

City officials are considering purchasing two surplus elementary school sites from the Redondo Beach City School District for construction of low- and moderate-cost housing for the elderly. The City Council this week directed its staff to study purchasing the Andrews and McCandless schools, both of which have been offered for lease by the school district. City officials are also evaluating a proposal to use the sites--as well as other surplus school sites--for recreational areas.

Boosted by strong sales, Boeing Co. beat analysts' estimates for its first quarter largely because of faster production of commercial jetliners. The Chicago aerospace giant reported a profit of $965 million, or $1.28 a share. That's down 12.7% from $1.11 billion, or $1.44 a share, a year earlier. Boeing attributed the fall to a $330-million write-off related to changes in its pension plans and a one-time tax credit in 2013. The company's core earnings - excluding retirement costs and the write-off - rose to $1.76 a share, up from $1.73 a share a year earlier.

Chorale master Paul Salamunovich once said that the greatest moment of his life was a 1988 concert at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II with the group he had led continuously since 1949, the St. Charles Borromeo Church Choir of North Hollywood. But it was his experience with choral music as a Southern California teenager that provided the underpinning for nearly everything he did over the next six-plus decades, including his role in shaping the Los Angeles Master Chorale into one of the world's finest choirs.

A Mexican national was convicted of second-degree murder Wednesday in the death of a veteran Coast Guardsman thrown overboard when a panga boat rammed the U.S. vessel. Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III's 2012 death made him the first Coast Guardsman murdered in the line of duty since 1927, officials said. Horne, who spent 14 years with the Coast Guard, was posthumously promoted to the rank of senior chief petty officer. Horne's widow, Rachel, was pregnant with Horne's third son at the time of his death.

USC defensive ends Leonard Williams and George Uko have mostly clogged the middle of opposing offenses, allowing junior linebacker J.R Tavai to thrive. Playing in place of injured Morgan Breslin, the 6-foot-2, 270-pound Tavai had a team-best 11 tackles and two sacks last week against Utah. It was the second time in three games that the junior from Redondo Beach made at least 10 tackles. The Trojans are hoping that Tavai will continue his dominant play on Friday night at Oregon State.
