A funeral procession for the slain police chief wound its way through a dusty hillside neighborhood Sunday as authorities moved to restore a sense of order in time for the high season in this popular tourist destination. Carlos Bowser Miret, the 49-year-old director of public safety, was ambushed outside his home Saturday morning by two masked assailants -- one of whom sprayed his car with several rounds from an AK-47 assault rifle. Police have not identified suspects or determined a motive.

"One Is Not Enough," the story on second homes by Allison B. Cohen, April 18, is right on. I live in Rosarito Beach -- 20 miles south of San Diego. Since 9/11, our real estate market has really been brisk with those California second-home buyers, with Arizona, Oregon, Washington state and Nevada right behind California.

Juan Aguirre, 53, of Oceanside, and Jesus Gonzalez, 32, of Rosarito Beach, Mexico, were booked into Ventura County Jail in lieu of $1-million bail on suspicion of transporting narcotics, said sheriff's spokesman Eric Nishimoto. The methamphetamine had an estimated street value of $1 million, he said.

Regarding Curt Bormann's letter of May 19 on his stay at the Rosarito Beach Hotel ("Mexico Memo"): We stayed at the Rosarito Beach Hotel with our son and his wife for three days. We found everything to be in good order and well kept. The staff was more than gracious. After our stay we recommended it to friends who experienced the same good treatment that we received.

Then opportunity knocked -- quite literally -- on March 26, when city police officers came to the door of the house Miles and his crew were renting.

Last week in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, we bought a case of Mexican beer at one of those warehouse distribution stations that charges so much less than liquor stores. Almost immediately we were stopped by a traffic cop because a girl in the back seat had opened one of the bottles. She was a visitor from Spain and was following an old Spanish custom. Well, the cop wanted us to pay him $150. All we had was change from a $50 traveler's check with which we had bought the beer. So he impounded our car and said we would get it back when we came up with the $150.
