Watching the Los Angeles riots on television, I was shocked the way the news professionals mishandled and misinterpreted the civil unrest that exists in the South-Central community. Some news anchors and reporters were calling the rioters "thugs," and in one report the word "illegals" was used. We must understand that Los Angeles is a culturally diverse city.

I have nothing but respect for commentator Rosemarie Vasquez. I too believe that television news ought to reflect the varied culture to which it allegedly reports. But it makes my blood boil when persons such as Esther Renteria, head of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, refer to breaking up their "white-bread look." The condescending implication, of course, is that anything non-ethnic is devoid of substance, cultural significance or anything the slightest bit interesting. If one were to so narrowly characterize Vasquez, I am certain Renteria would be the first to balk.

To the cries of cronyism, the City Council voted last week to award a lucrative consulting contract to a woman who has worked on the election campaigns of three City Council members. Rosemarie Vasquez, a commentator on KABC-TV Channel 7 news who owned a jewelry business in Montebello, will be paid $4,000 per month to "improve the quality of life in Bell Gardens" as an independent consultant. She started her job Friday.

The City Council this week appointed a citizens committee to review a controversial redevelopment proposal, but was immediately accused of snubbing residents and creating a rubber stamp. The council formed the committee to find out how residents feel about a proposal to let the Montebello Redevelopment Agency wield the power of eminent domain over two redevelopment areas in South Montebello.

Mayor Bill Cervenik has spent a lifetime celebrating the Fourth of July curled up on a blanket in this city's Memorial Park beneath bursts of fireworks across a darkened Ohio sky. People have long considered the fireworks a treasure of this Cleveland suburb, where flags fly year-round in neighborhoods of bungalows and stores post signs for passersby to "support our troops."

With less than a month before voters decide whether to give the Community Redevelopment Agency the power of eminent domain in South Montebello, community leaders on both sides say they are confident of victory, and promise intense campaigning. The opposing forces in the polarizing issue were starting campaigns on Saturday by canvassing shopping centers and city parks, mailing flyers to registered voters and going door-to-door to discuss the impact of eminent domain with residents.
