The City Council has repealed a moratorium on construction of motels and approved applications for two. The moratorium was passed four months ago when eight motels were in the planning stage. The new ordinance calls for a 40,000-square-foot minimum lot, an economic feasibility study and a conditional-use permit. Applications were approved for a 52-unit Travelodge on Garvey Avenue and a 50-unit Venus Motel on San Gabriel Boulevard.

For hours, the meditation hall at Lu Mountain Temple in the south San Gabriel Valley hummed with muted chatter and camera shutter-clicks. Around the room, glass display cases held translucent urns and miniature versions of dome-shaped Buddhist shrines, or stupas, delicately arranged on burgundy-colored cloth. The urns and stupas held thousands of bright pearl-like crystals believed to be relics of the Buddha, his relatives and his disciples. A wide-eyed Julie Nguyen of Orange County stepped sideways in front of one of the display cases.

The preschooler's hair was falling out in clumps. He had stopped playing with other children and barely spoke to his teachers. He woke screaming each night, and during the day clung to his mother. What's wrong, she asked again and again. Finally, he told her: His big brother, adopted seven years earlier from the Maryvale Catholic orphanage in Rosemead, was molesting him. Devastated, she rushed the older boy to a therapist's office, where he offered a harrowing explanation. "He said that Brother Larry had done it to him at Maryvale - him and other children," his mother recalled years later.

In case you haven't heard, one of Tiki-dom's most venerable institutions is set to close . Bahooka Family Restaurant in Rosemead is scheduled to shut its doors on March 10 . It's a great old place, opened in 1967, dimly lit except for all of the fish tanks and fabulously kitschy Tiki- and Polynesian-themed decorations fixed all over the walls and ceilings. I went there Sunday to pay the grand dame tribute with a group of friends, including one whose mother once worked at both the Bahooka in Rosemead as well as the old location in West Covina.

Something reeks in Rosemead. Some say it's the slaughterhouse on Garvey Avenue. Others say it's a bigoted attitude toward the company's Asian clientele that stinks. For two decades, Chinese American Live Poultry has sold freshly killed birds you can grab by the feet and look in the eye. Located on an industrial corridor where the traffic is thick and the strip malls are tired, the storefront serves hundreds of customers a day. But city officials have voted to shut down the business, citing offensive odors, traffic congestion and escaped chickens.

In a city that touts itself as today's small-town America with a beautification campaign complete with "curb appeal" awards, a slaughterhouse would seem an ill fit. But for two decades, Chinese American Live Poultry has offered freshly killed birds on Garvey Avenue in Rosemead and, after a contentious fight with city leaders, there it will remain. The slaughterhouse and the city have agreed to settle a federal lawsuit, clearing the way for Chinese American Live Poultry to continue serving chicken with head and feet intact - the kind of fare that has its mostly Asian clientele lining up at sunrise during holidays.

Re "Retooling Teach For America," Opinion, July 10 As a former principal, teachers and I were often dismayed when the time and effort we put in to help these young people be successful went for naught because they often left after their two-year commitment was completed. A second problem is that these inexperienced teachers are often placed in inner-city schools where teaching is most difficult. Having rookies as their teachers often compounds the severe challenges faced by our inner-city students.
