This has been a good year for Mary Jo White, the new chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and not such a good one for Apple Inc. Chief Executive Tim Cook and New York hedge fund manager Bill Ackman. That's the view of Worth magazine, which pegged White as the most powerful person in finance, ahead of President Obama and Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke. The magazine this week released an updated list of the 100 most influential people in finance, introducing White at the top of the list, while Cook and Ackman got the ax. Bill Gates, Peter Thiel and Warren Buffett fell, but stayed in Worth's top 100.

After reading the article about Palos Verdes Peninsula cash-strapped schools (June 13) and the programs that have been cut or eliminated, it was dismaying to read that the peninsula ranked among the wealthiest in the U.S. (same issue) according to Worth magazine. As Gordana Swanson, a former mayor of Rolling Hills, ranked richest in the nation, remarked, "This is a community that truly cherishes its privacy." Small wonder. RAYMOND FITZPATRICK Beverly Hills

This innocuous little city, tucked away in a corner of Orange County, has once again made news. And once again, it's done so without trying. Villa Park (pop. 5,897), which has neither a bank nor a single street remotely resembling Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, has just been named one of the 300 wealthiest towns in America--and the wealthiest in Orange County.
