A city newspaper was about the last thing Sue Laris had on her mind when she went looking for a paper to buy in 1972. She was searching for something small, homey and rural--the kind of drowsy hometown weekly that gets delivered by car, survives on corny advertisements from local merchants and features a folksy column by the editor. But with $1,400 to spend, even the smallest paper was out of reach. So she and her husband settled for the next best thing. They started a newspaper from scratch.

Sue Laris isn't only a tremendous booster for Downtown ("A New Force Downtown," Aug. 8, by Steve Braun) but has turned into one heck of a marketer for our city. I'm pleased that after years in the trenches she is finally receiving the recognition she deserves. TONY M. BLOMERT, Los Angeles

What fun it was to open the April 14 Times and see Jerry Hulse's spread on Ferndale. I grew up there, and I can vouch for his having captured the charm and attraction of the place. I love it still. Jerry's point about it being far enough off that it can remain aloof from the world is very well taken. It wasn't until I left there for college that I realized it was a Brigadoon, a place of another time, a place of the heart, all shrouded in fog. Growing up there taught me a way of dealing with people that has never left me: It may seem bizarre, but I treat downtown Los Angeles as if it were a community of about 1,300 people, as Ferndale is now and was then.

I want to congratulate you on your story "Controversy Floods New Pasadena Pool" (Times, April 28). It is extraordinarily easy to be caught up in the emotion of one side or another in a story such as this one, especially when inflammatory accusations are being made. You managed to avoid the traps. As a former board member, I know that racism does not motivate any of the actions of the AAF-RBAC board. This is a board with a vision, a vision of building first-class water sport teams with kids who haven't had the privilege of growing up with a pool.

We are writing in response to "Crisis May Be Used as Bait by Other States" (Dec. 11). Although The Times has made noticeable efforts to provide more balanced perspectives on the local economy in recent months, this article, which featured many negative quotes about our economy from economic development officials in other states, represents the kind of reporting that inhibits our region's burgeoning recovery. We have three specific concerns: Most local officials would strongly dispute the analysis and conclusions offered by the out-of-state individuals your article cited.

I hurry past the intersection of 4th and Spring streets on my downtown walks these days: There is no reason to slow down any more. An old friend died at the southeast corner earlier this year, and I don't even want to think about it. The friend was a store, an 80-year-old camera store called Earl V. Lewis Cameras.

Few people outside downtown Los Angeles know of the area's weekly newspaper, a free publication that reads like the hometown gazette for the nation's second-most populous city. Within the knot of freeways that encircles this part of the city, however, the Los Angeles Downtown News is a must-read for many commuters who snap up the 47,000 copies that hit sidewalk and high-rise lobby news racks each Monday.
