Ed Edison flies in four times a year from his Honolulu home to shop a small slice of Pico Boulevard on the Westside. "Shopping here is like going to the market in Tehran," the 52-year-old Iranian American said during a recent trip. "There, people shop daily at the fairs and run into relatives. Same thing here." The stretch of Pico between Roxbury Drive and La Cienega Boulevard is the newest--and certainly most populous--incarnation of Los Angeles' ethnic Jewish base.

Last year's landmark overhaul of federal welfare law was supposed to get people off the dole and back to work. But Norik Barseghian fears the change may cost him his business. "I'm worried people won't be able to buy as much food here anymore," the bespectacled grocer said last week as he stood behind the cash register of his Glendale shop, Armenian-language compact discs and pistachio sweets filling the shelves behind him.

A group of southeast Valley residents is protesting Ralphs Grocery Co.'s newest acquisition plans, saying the chain's growing dominance of their neighborhood is unwelcome and a little unnerving. "Studio City is being taken over by Ralphs," said Tony Lucente, president of the Studio City Residents Assn. The 2,000-member group wrote a letter of complaint to state Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren this week, seeking to block the proposed merger between Ralphs and Hughes Family Markets.

The owner of a shopping center at Ventura and Topanga Canyon boulevards on Monday appealed the Los Angeles Planning Commission's approval of plans for a competing grocery store, saying increased traffic from the project would create hazards.

The legendary battle for the Southern California food dollar, a state survey suggests, stops at the dairy case. The state Department of Food and Agriculture said average milk prices in the Los Angeles area are now 20% higher than in the San Francisco or Sacramento areas, a spread that could cost Southland families $100 or more each on milk purchases this year. Average prices for whole milk in Los Angeles were $2.73 a gallon in October, compared to $2.27 in San Francisco and $2.
