State health officials on Monday withdrew their advice that customers of the Amarillo Mutual Water Co. in Rosemead boil water before drinking it. Steven Takahashi, associate sanitary engineer with the state Department of Health Services, said new tests show that Amarillo Mutual's water supply is now free of the bacterial contamination that forced the company to shut down a well last Wednesday. Takahashi said the source of the contamination has not been found.

Wal-Mart's efforts to build Supercenters in Los Angeles County suffered a setback this week when voters in Rosemead ousted two council members who supported the project in that community and replaced them with two critics. Although the results were unlikely to halt construction of the store, experts said it demonstrated the aggressive efforts of labor unions and community groups to challenge Wal-Mart at every turn as the retail giant attempts to expand across California.

Concrete will replace asphalt on the Rosemead portion of the intersection and sidewalks will be added to the Valley side, among other improvements.

State health officials have advised 2,500 residents of a Rosemead area served by a small private water company that the water has a high bacteria level and should be boiled for five minutes before drinking. Fahd Rizk, a state Department of Health Services sanitary engineer, said bacterial contamination has forced the Amarillo Mutual Water Co. to shut down one of its two wells, flush out the system and for the first time begin chlorinating its water supply.

Agriculture officials reported Wednesday that another Mediterranean fruit fly has been trapped in Rosemead, virtually assuring a new round of aerial malathion applications in what was one of the most heavily sprayed sectors in a yearlong eradication effort across Southern California. The discovery reinforced fears among scientists and community activists that the state's strategy in fighting the pest has failed. It was the second fly trapped in Rosemead in a week.

About 60 people gathered in the courtyard of Rosemead City Hall on Saturday to honor six who died in the Vietnam War. The ceremony may have seemed a distant echo to an era that shook the country, but relatives of the dead soldiers say the memories are still fresh. "This is a good gesture. . . . It means my son's memory will live on. But the entire occasion has brought back to me what a trying time my family and this nation went through," said Della Craig, 66, whose 20-year-old son Michael was killed in Cambodia 21 years ago. The city decided to erect the monument in 1986, more than 11 years after U.S. troops left Vietnam.
