Marking his last meeting as 3rd District supervisor and chairman of the board, Gaddi H. Vasquez choked back the tears Tuesday as he said goodby to his friends and colleagues and offered best wishes to the county. Vasquez, who leaves office at 5 p.m. today, resigned earlier this year, citing the toll of the county's bankruptcy and his desire to spend more time with his family.

Huntington Beach bantamweight Johnny Vasquez, coming off a stunning knockout victory, will fight journeyman Jesus Jimenez in tonight's main event at the Irvine Marriott. Vasquez (6-4, five knockouts), in his second main event and second eight-round bout, needed less than a round to stop Jose Luis Orejel in September. Jimenez (9-14-2), like Orejel, has had more fights than Vasquez, but he doesn't appear to have much power. He has only three knockouts in 23 fights.

Re "Not the One for Peace Corps," editorial, Aug. 20: While there are better-qualified candidates to head the Peace Corps, Gaddi Vasquez is certainly not unqualified for the job.
