Architects and planners Elizabeth Moule and Stefanos Polyzoides have been among the biggest fans and supporters of downtown Los Angeles. They were the lead consultants on a widely heralded $2-million strategic plan to help revitalize the commercial core. Their firm has long been located in a historic downtown building. But now the husband-and-wife design team are preparing to do what so many other downtown employers have done before: head for the suburbs.

Re "O.C. Builders Reach Their Final Frontier," June 15: Having been born and raised in Orange County, I have come to a number of conclusions about life here: There is little pride in the beauty of the land or for the wildlife that lives on it. Landowners, especially rich ones, usually get their way, and often claim to be working for the common good. People would rather participate in over-development's miseries (traffic, pollution, lack of open space, lame public transit, scarce affordable housing)

Printed leggings are expected to be all the rage this fall, and they also create an optical illusion, making your legs seem heavier.

Beverly Hills' downtown is being prepared for a slight make-over--a nip and tuck that officials say will enhance what is one of the most lucrative shopping areas in the country. The improvements will provide the 20-block retail core with an eclectic mix of the best attributes of the small-town atmosphere of Larchmont Village, the vibrancy of the Sunset Strip and splendor of New York's Madison Avenue, proponents say.
