Marisol Heredia had a reputation as a strong-willed, perceptive young woman who, in the words of her older sister Claudia Billiot, "if she wanted to do something, was going to do it, no matter who said no." It was that single-mindedness -- to serve, to experience other parts of the world -- that led Heredia to follow her sister into the Army after high school. Heredia was assigned to the 15th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division at Ft. Hood, Texas.

The crusty owner of the 60-year-old A. Partamian Bakery in the Mid-City area liked the way they cooked his sarma and lahmajune. And he liked the two of them.

One must answer the letter to the editor from Ronald J. Legault (Times, Jan. 19). The comments are misleading and unfair, and by publicly airing our internal squabbles, tarnish the image of our city. A clarifying response is very much in order to the points raised in the letter. First, Mayor Moses was provided city funds to attend a League of Cities Conference during May 10-13, 1988, in San Francisco. Instead, he chose to use the money to pay for hotel accommodations in the Lee Vining area where he was distributing political posters for a state senatorial candidate.

For the last three months, the parents of first-grader Stephanie Ochoa scooted their child off to school suited up in a uniform: white polo shirts and blouses, navy blue jumpers, shorts and skirts.
