Sharp Corp. of Japan is doubling its investment in a television and vacuum cleaner assembly plant in Rosarito, Mexico, to $60 million, while two of its suppliers together are investing $40 million in new facilities, Mexican officials said. The appliance manufacturer previously said it would open a plant in October about 20 miles south of the U.S.-Mexico border to assemble 1 million TVs and 1.5 million vacuum cleaners a year.

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.

A sinking ship is fast becoming the unofficial logo of this seaside town. There it is on a big new sign boasting the "original Titanic burger." And down the road on a seafood stand called Mariscos El Titanic. A recently opened glass shop features faux portholes below its name, also Titanic. And, oh yes, there's a "Titanic" museum.

Alice Ford's birthday trip to Rosarito on Friday night fell short by a mere 50 feet. That was as close as the ship on which she stood, margarita in hand, would come to the Mexican coastal city's new pier during this voyage--the inaugural run of a daily casino cruise from San Diego that marks a novel venture for a California Indian tribe. Opening-night delays and concerns about a damaged section of dock kept Ford and the 400 other passengers from disembarking.

Efforts were underway Friday to clean up as much as 110,000 gallons of fuel oil that spilled off the coast of Mexico near Rosarito a day earlier. The oil, which was being piped from a U.S.-owned tanker anchored 1 1/2 miles offshore to an onshore storage facility, spilled due to a pipe failure, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Officials said some of the oil had come ashore and 200 Mexican navy personnel, working with a U.S. cleanup contractor, spent several hours Friday cleaning beaches.

After reading Bob Sipchen's glowing report ("Life Is a Fiesta!" March 19, 1995), we decided to try the Festival Plaza resort at Rosarito, Mexico. Our family checked into two bungalows on Dec. 26, 1995. No heat. Peeling paint. Lights not working. Uncomfortable chairs. View of a utility yard next door. During the night the kids' sofa bed collapsed. In the morning our car was covered with peeling paint from the garage ceiling. We moved to the Rosarito Beach Hotel and had a pleasant stay.
