In a setback for the Screen Actors Guild, Steve Diamond, an associate law professor and an advisor to the AFL-CIO, has removed himself from the running for the union's top staff position. Although Diamond was the leading candidate to be the guild's executive director, he could not reach agreement with the union on the terms of his contract. Sources close to the guild said Diamond withdrew his name from consideration Wednesday after seeking a higher salary than the union was willing to pay.

The Pismo Beach City Council will meet today to discuss an emergency proposal to strengthen restrictions on sex shops. The move comes in response to rumors that sex shop owner Steve Diamond, who operates several Diamond Adult World shops on the Central Coast, is planning to expand into Pismo Beach. The council plans to discuss adding restrictions to an ordinance that allows adult businesses to operate in shopping centers.

I have no connection to the Screen Actors Guild but would like to congratulate it for not hiring Steve Diamond as executive director ("Front-Runner Rejects SAG Post," June 3). It has become too common for high-level candidates to portray themselves as essential and invaluable to an organization, thus making outrageous demands regarding salary and frivolous perks. The truth is that there are other fish in the sea who can do the job equally well, if not better. Only when boards of directors have the strength and intelligence to "just say no" to the ridiculous requests of inflated egos will we begin to see the potential for reform.

The top nominees in recent years have included such soothing, pop-oriented artists as Whitney Houston and Natale Cole, but many of the female nominees in the major categories this time have a more biting edge to their music, perhaps reflecting a change in the voting process.

I cannot begin to express my disappointment in Mayor Riordan relative to the announcement that Thrifty Drug Stores intends to move its corporate offices out of Los Angeles and up to Wilsonville, Ore. ("Thrifty Likely to Move From L.A. to Oregon, Riordan Says," March 18), following the merger of Payless and Thrifty. Remember when rumor had it that Thrifty was going to move to Orange County? Wasn't that Mayor Riordan, arm in arm with Thrifty executives, proudly announcing that Thrifty was dedicated to the city of Los Angeles and would not be moving their headquarters from Los Angeles to Orange County?

Silivelio Grohse's favorite toy was a plastic pistol. Almost any afternoon, he could be found on a hillside behind a Potrero Hill housing project, waving the gun in a solo game of cops and robbers. Silivelio, nicknamed "Tony," did not understand the concept of shooting, those who knew him said. Severely retarded, Tony, 13, could barely speak or perform tasks requiring coordination. "He was a sweet kid," said Steve Diamond, his special education teacher. "He didn't know about life or death.
