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.

Sandlewood incense and meditative chanting infused the high-ceiling prayer room Wednesday of the newly opened Rosemead Buddhist Monastery, as practitioners and priests gathered for the final festivities in a four-day inaugural event. Buddhists from as far away as Sri Lanka and Thailand have traveled to Rosemead for the opening of the temple, said Chao Chu, a Buddhist bhante, or master.

An exhibit of Chinese ice sculpture inside a Rosemead store that had been converted into a giant freezer will close Thursday, more than two weeks early, because of slow ticket sales, an exhibit official said Monday. More than 60,000 people have visited the exhibit to see the five dozen ice sculptures carved by Chinese artisans since it opened in May.

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.

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.

Three Southern California cities have agreed to change their election procedures after the U.S. Justice Department accused them of failing to provide all voting materials in foreign languages during the March elections, officials said Friday. The settlements come after the Justice Department's civil rights division completed audits of how elections were handled in Azusa, Paramount and Rosemead, three small but ethnically diverse communities.
