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.

A 23-acre plot of gravel and grass has caused a political divide in Rosemead, where the campaign for three City Council seats has largely become a referendum on plans to build a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Three incumbents helped approve the plan in September. Now three challengers opposed to the development hope to win the seats in Tuesday's election. But even if the challengers prevail, it's unclear whether the project could be stopped.

A family shattered by a gunman with a raging obsession for his ex-girlfriend gathered Wednesday in front of their Rosemead home to mourn four loved ones as police continued searching for the killer. "I can't . . . I can't believe it!" sobbed a 40-year-old woman, who was kidnapped and sexually assaulted by the attacker before being released Tuesday morning. She kissed and cradled a picture of the victims and, minutes later, fainted on the lawn.
