As the screenwriter of "Rosewood," I must respond to Earl Ofari Hutchinson ("Rosewood's Victory Is Lost on Film," Counterpunch, March 10). First of all, Hutchinson states that our film is based on the book "Like Judgment Day." In fact, that book was not published until we were well into production. "Rosewood" is an entirely original screenplay based on the historical record and interviews with the survivors. More important, Hutchinson feels that we missed the boat by focusing on the events that took place in Rosewood, Fla., in 1923.

As a young African American, I share the comments made by "Rosewood's" screenwriter, Gregory Poirer ("Setting Record Straight on 'Rosewood,' 'Amos,' " Counterpunch letters, March 17). I have long heard rumors and been told stories of many injustices and inhumanities that my ancestors endured at the hand of slavery and racism. However, there are very few films that accurately document these events so that I can have a better sense of what those who came before me actually had to endure.

Two dozen federal agents outfitted with side arms and bulletproof vests strode past a display of electric guitars signed by Joan Jett and Slash of Guns 'N' Roses and quickly seized control of the cavernous guitar factory. Some workers were caught sanding guitar bodies. Others held newly painted guitars between their bellies and cloth-covered wax wheels, gently swaying and pushing as they buffed the instrument in some kind of tuneless dance. Turn off your machines and go home, they were ordered.

The design was a cooperative effort by the firm's New York office. It was seen in the Mandel & Co. showroom.

The legendary Hotel Bel-Air, a bougainvillea-bordered haven for show business celebrities and European royalty seeking privacy and elegance, is being sold to a Japanese investment group for more than $100 million, the hotel's current owners announced Monday. The per-room purchase price of more than $1.2 million shatters the old record of about $757,000 per room, established when the Sultan of Brunei bought the nearby 260-room Beverly Hills Hotel for about $200 million in 1987. Investor Donald Trump paid $496,000 a room when he bought New York's Plaza Hotel last year.

As a native Floridian, I pledged from first knowledge of the Rosewood massacre that I would do all within my power to see that the survivors received redress of their grievances, whether or not I ever made a movie about it ("A Massacre, the Movies and the Obligations of Memory," by Eric Harrison, Oct. 16). When I engaged Holland & Knight in behalf of Lee Ruth Davis and Minnie Lee Langley, I charged the law firm with seeking out and representing all the survivors, and they undertook that responsibility.

It's always risky business making comparisons between a film and the book it's based on. A film is geared to mass audiences and must convey the story in as simple and entertaining a manner as possible. Often many of the book's characters and plot details are stripped and shorn away in the film. That's why many of us walk out of a theater after seeing a movie based on a book we've read and complain that "the book was better."

For all its storied history — the Farmers Market, Canter's Deli — Fairfax Avenue's finest foodie days may be yet to come. In the wake of Animal's 2008 opening, the neighborhood has gained gourmet coffee (Coffee Commissary), eco-conscious butchers (Lindy & Grundy), a top-shelf burger (The Golden State), a reasonably priced brunch spot (Black Cat Bakery) and now perhaps its biggest surprise yet: a laid-back steakhouse with 28 craft beers on tap. At Rosewood Tavern, which opened officially on May 20, customers will find bar stools instead of tablecloths and ale options written in chalk rather than manuscript-size menus.

Twenty-five isn't really so old, but the Rosewood Crescent Hotel in Dallas plans to mark the milestone with discounts. Starting today, Wednesday, the hotel is offering rooms on selected nights at its 1986 opening rate: $100 a night. Of course, you could scrap the idea of saving money and instead splurge on another anniversary special at the hotel: $25,000 for two nights in the presidential suite with use of an Aston Martin and other cool extras. Or not. The deal: There are 91 rooms and 29 one- and two-bedroom suites at the Rosewood Crescent, whose facade looks a bit more French palace than Texan.

"Gossip Girl" goes "Twin Peaks Lite" in ABC Family's mildly sinister romp "Pretty Little Liars," which premieres Tuesday. If the title doesn't let you know what you're in for, the tagline — "Never trust a pretty girl with an ugly secret" — will. Four sweet-16s reunite a year after their conniving queen bee Alison (Sasha Pieterse) goes missing during one dark and stormy drink 'n' sleepover. Aria ("Privileged's" Lucy Hale), whose family apparently hightailed it to Iceland moments after Alison's disappearance, has returned to picture-perfect Rosewood just in time for the anniversary.

Construction is expected to begin later this year on Rosewood at Eastlake Hills, a $30-million, single-family home project that will be developed by Brehn Communities on a 3,073-acre master-planned site in Chula Vista. The development will include 187 single-family dwellings on 39.9 acres. The first phase of 10 homes is expected to be released for presales in early 1986, according to Brehn, at prices ranging from $150,000 to $180,000. Occupancy is expected in May of 1986.

I think everyone acknowledges that something will take the place of Chasen's ("Chasen's Neighbors Fight Plan to Raze Stars' Haunt," Jan. 1). Fine. But doesn't it have to be over 50 feet tall? Does it have to be three stories? (True, the developer refers to it as a two-story structure, but in fact, the market does have a mezzanine . . . and 2 plus 1 adds up to 3!) I have to believe that this proposed mall is not the only viable use for this piece of property. And I believe that there is a way for the Chasen's family to make money, and Mr. Smedra's group to make money, and the residents of West Hollywood to still have a feeling of neighborhood continuity and, equally important, a City Council that is responsive to our needs.

They say that if you're a new arrival, it takes four years to make a life in Los Angeles. How this axiom got started is anyone's guess. But no matter where the accepted L.A.-ism originated, the fact remains: Getting intimately acquainted with all the hidden corners of this sprawling metropolis might take a lifetime. Now help has arrived. On the recently launched website Mondette, founder Tasha Nita Adams, 35, and partners Lilliam Rivera, 39, and Christina von Messling, 36, do the heavy lifting for you, offering style-centric CliffsNotes from a local perspective about specific L.A. neighborhoods.

ROSEWOOD Hotels & Resorts, whose 13 world properties include the celebrity hideaway Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos, Mexico (think Babs, Arnold and J.Lo), is spreading its glitz across the American land. In the last six months, the Dallas-based company, which bills itself as "ultra-luxury," has added two U.S. hotels to its portfolio, and it's about to open another: Acqualina, a 51-story Mediterranean high-rise in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., about halfway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
