Thomas Gioiosa, who once lived with Cincinnati Reds Manager Pete Rose and his family, pleaded innocent today to federal charges of tax evasion and conspiracy to distribute cocaine. U.S. Magistrate Robert Steinberg allowed Gioiosa, 31, to remain free on bond. If convicted, Gioiosa could face maximum penalties of 38 years in prison and $2 million in fines. The five-count federal indictment accuses Gioiosa of income-tax evasion for the years 1985 and '86, and charges that he conspired to arrange cocaine deliveries from Florida to Cincinnati between January, 1985, and January, 1987.

Robert Steinberg's letter criticizing The Times' coverage of the Culver City election is an outrage (Times, May 6). The Times should be praised for being first to report the story on the illegal use of the Measure I petitions by its opponents. If there were a Pulitzer Prize for local journalism, The Times deserves consideration here. Your paper out-covered a daily and a Culver City-based paper on this important story. Mr. Steinberg accuses the Times of "half-truths and innuendoes" but fails to make his case.

Phyllis Frelich, a deaf actress who received a Tony award in 1980 for her performance in "Children of a Lesser God," has died at her Temple City home. She was 70. The cause of her death Thursday was progressive supranuclear palsy, her husband, Robert Steinberg, said. PSP is a rare neurological condition that also took the life of actor Dudley Moore in 2002. Born Feb. 29, 1944, in Devils Lake, N.D., Frelich was one of nine deaf children. Her parents were deaf as well. Credited with paving the way for other deaf performers, she never dreamed of acting until attending Gallaudet College, a school for the deaf in Washington, D.C. "The dream was to get out of wherever you were and meet and mingle with the cream of the deaf world, all together in one place," she told The Times in 2001.
